      I'm guessing it's more something for a helmet to be attached to?

      Exactly. We see him in space with the helmet connected to the "vest".

      With Civil War II being about Iron Man vs Captain Marvel, do you think we'll see some Alpha Flight members in the high profile event?

      Wouldn't he want a cup, too?

      My guess would be, yes.

      I would say that's a strong possibility

      It all depends - If AF are left out in space after the first arc and CWII all takes place on Earth they may not fit in.
      It is Bendis writing it!

      Civil War II. Panel One. Alpha Flight floating dead in space (all of them. Even Stitch and Mar)... Captain Marvel stares angrily into the eyes of [insert character] and yells, "MURDERER!!!!"

      Canada is destroyed during combat. Never mentioned again.

      You forgot the three pages of Mamet-speak:
      "Murderer?"
      "I think [insert character] is a murderer."
      "You think [insert character] is a murderer?"
      "I do."
      ... etc...

      Do you see it as a testament to the cumulative effect of the work Marvel has done with that character over the last four years -- who at one point was something of a secondary character and is now opposing Iron Man, who's maybe the most well-known character at Marvel at this point?
      Alonso:
      Yep. It was definitely fortuitous that all the work we've done with Carol over the past few years positioned her for this moment. When you read the upcoming "Captain Marvel" #1, you'll see that she is now an extremely powerful and influential character in the Marvel Universe. She now presides over the Alpha Flight, which, for all intents and purposes, is Earth's first line of defense from threats far and wide. Her new role feeds directly into her role in "Civil War II."
