    Cover by GIL KANE & DAVE COCKRUM
    When a young writer named Chris Claremont took over X-MEN in 1976, few fans could predict the incredible impact he would have on the Marvel Comics series. With a flair for realistic dialogue, heartfelt storylines and hard-hitting action, Claremont's writing breathed life into the characters. In collaboration with artists Dave Cockrum and John Byrne, Claremont crafted a run still heralded as a definitive era on the book. X-MEN became more than just another super-hero title: This diverse cast of mutants fighting against prejudice and intolerance has resonated in the hearts of millions of devoted readers. Now, the first five years of their landmark run on Uncanny X-Men are collected in one oversized volume. This keepsake edition also includes all original letters pages and other uncanny extras!

      I'm surprised Shaman is being used so much in Strange. Maybe we will even get a cameo in the movie (very unlikely)

      SW Snowbird in Inhumans? What's that! I thought we decided it wasn't Snowbird.

      Oh and Marvel Previews came out today and there are images of Alpha Flight in Capt. Marvel #1, so yeah, take out the "Possible"

      Were there actual recognisable present-day Alpha Flight characters in the preview?
      To me it looked like Danvers & Brand interviewing an alien, with "AF" support staff present...

      Say what? Do you have a link? Or was that the magazine style print preview? Which members?

      Yeah, staff members. I'll post a scan later.

      EDIT: not really scanworthy. Just imagine someone wearing a patch with a maple leaf

      Oh then I don't care as much. I was hoping some of the originals appeared, but seems it's alpha flight is name only. Guess we shall see
    1. Phil's Avatar
      Phil -
      Yeah, so it's still a possible until we get more info on if Alpha Flight is actually Alpha Flight.

      As to Snowbird in Inhumans... I think the A-Force #5 appearance gives credence to it being her so we'll go with it.
      Charles Soule is at a Con over here next month so I may try asking him there.

      Let's hope you get an answer (as opposed to a response, which is all we usually get).
