      Combined forces? I seriously doubt the rest of AF will show up. WE want Puck to be a hero, and Talisman not dead, for starters, and AF to get the glory, not interlopers (even if it is called X-Men). Marvel does that a lot, have the American heroes go to a foreign country and usurp what local heroes should do but "can't".

      Hopefully Sas, Shaman & Snowbird will turn up next issue - the Spirit Realm and the Great Beasts are definitely their territory.

      I'm not bothered about AF getting the glory; just not treated like a joke - which they haven't been so far; they've been solid plot-driven supporting characters.

      I'd like to see Talisman survive, but I'd rather she die than any of the originals.

      Perhaps they consider Wolverine, Northstar, Puck (all of whom are actually X-characters, now, it seems to me) and Talisman to be Alpha Flight? I see nothing here that screams out to me that the rest of Flight will show up. Oh, wait, Heather and Mac are somewhere around here, too.

      Anybody hoping to see more Alphans...what, do you expect Marrina to show up and save the day?

      Sasquatch is set to appear.

      Thing is, they are saying "well, she had the way to beat them so the Wendigos had to take her out." But that means the X-Men are idiots, as they did not protect the one person who could end this mess.

      We don't know that for sure; a cover isn't necessarily representative of the inside.

      Ah, somebody is thinking. Of course, thinking isn't allowed in comics. Nor is being a fanboy (or fangirl) okay, either.

      I thought that was a Wendigo on the cover, not Sas.

      very true, but now with the addition of the great beasts in the story? Think it's a safe bet he will be there

      It was him unless it was a colouring error

      Wow. Nice to have some Alphans on the cover!

      But...what a horrible looking Sasquatch! And, is ti just me, or does that somehow look more like the Volume 2 Mac (Synth Mac)?


      Definitely Sas.

      To be fair, I didn't see her 'death' coming the way it did; I can fully understand why the X-Men didn't protect her from the specific person that initiated it.

      To be fair, though, the X-Men should know that the most dangerous person is ALWAYS Wolverine.

      Which is why he's the one person they probably counted on the most to protect her, not threaten her.

      I mean, my first thought was 'How can HE be turned to Wendigo? His healing fact-- oh." I can imagine his teammates instincting the same way.

      Marvel, sometimes you're just too good to us Alpha Flight fans... only sometimes though. SERIOUSLY, can I get an on-going? I mean, Hawkeye comes out once every 2 months. I'd settle for that!

      Noooooooooo! I like Elizabeth and would like to see her with Alpha more often.

      And the Deadpool Photobomb variant for Uncanny X-Men #27 has an image of Sasquatch in the background:
