  • Alpha Flight To Return In 2015?

    In this week's Axel-In-Charge column at Comic Book Resources, Marvel Editor-In-Chief Axel Alonso gets asked the following question regarding Alpha Flight:

    Let's wrap the week with a few questions from the CBR Community: macroblaster1999 has taken note on some perceived lower-tier characters getting a spotlight recently at Marvel, and asks, "Are there plans for less-known teams like the Great Lakes Avengers or Alpha Flight?"
    Great Lakes Avengers…?

    "Cannot predict now."
    Alpha Flight…?
    "Signs point to yes."

    Whilst we've had similar sort of hints previously this does look to be a bit more solid and encouraging, although whether it just means guest appearances remains to be seen. However this close to the end of the World war Wendigo arc of Amazing X-Men it sounds like something more could be in the works, possibly as a result of the Secret Wars event?

      Interesting to note red wolf was apparently supposed to team up with Sasquatch in 2011...maybe not our Sasquatch but who knows...
      "In a 2011 interview, writer Jason Aaron revealed that in his original outline of Astonishing Spider-Man & Wolverine, the title characters would have been stranded in the 15th century where Spider-Man would have started the New World Avengers with Sasquatch, Red Wolf and an Aztec Ghost Rider."

      I'd say it would have been a sasquatch, like the ones he used in his Hulk run, given the timing of the setting.

      The cover artist for Red Wolf is of tribal descent, so maybe we can convince him to include Shaman and talisman on the cover at some point. lol. It would be nice to Have Alpha Flight somehow connected to the Red Wolf series somehow.

      I would not hold my breath.

      From what I have read of the description, it's going to be dark, gritty, and focus on crime and drama, and in the south.

      (And I bet that this new Red Wolf will be female... not that has any impact with Alpha Flight - just Marvel's new MO)...

      Then I'm going to move from 'that'd be cool' to 'I hope AF doesn't appear'.
      But that's just my tastes.

      Also, it's mostly the good stuff stars women, not the grim'n'grittyisitstillthe90s stuff.

      Well Marvel seems to be making everyone in the Marvel Universe female, and doing away with their male counter parts.

      Funny. Someone on the CBR forum mentioned the same thing on the Alpha Flight thread (that I have tried to keep alive) - and said more news to be released at NYCC.
