      Any clue which Avenger might be representing Canada on the U.S.Avengers #1 Variant cover? As far as I know the only Canadian to have been on the team is Wolverine and he's dead.

      Hoping for Marrina, but guessing Deadpool or Wolverine.

      Possible options: Sabretooth, Wolverine, Deadpool, Validator, Marrina.....Graviton is an Avengers villain and he's Canadian

      Sasquatch and Northstar were members during Avengers Forever

      Could be anyone, really, maybe Box, maybe Puck, maybe Sasquatch, maybe no one.

      Box and Puck have never been Avengers.
      Sasquatch & Northstar technically haven't... yet... or in this Universe...

      It'll probably be Deadpool.

      This hints that the team will continue to show up in the pages of CM:
      https://news.marvel.com/comics/55339...aptain-marvel/

      “Just because you’re the strongest person on the planet doesn’t mean you don’t have to work at it. Carol has gotten all of Alpha Flight into BossFit, the hard-core workout regimen she devised herself. Puck named it BossFit the first time she bossed them all into doing it with her—and now no one can escape it. Not even Squatch…”

      Hoping that's a cute nickname...

      I think they were talking in general terms, not saying she's that.

      In Ultimates they actually called her the most powerful hero on earth. Speaking of which they just did an interview concerning the captain marvel movie and they say she will be the most powerful character to be introduced. Sounds like she will get a bigger push

      Cool, but 'most powerful' ≠ strongest. My take is, she has a wide variety of powers to make her more powerful, but any of the Hulks would be stronger.

      Or maybe not. I've really been losing track of the Marvel Universe for years now.
