    Default Create your own Alpha Flight Team

    If you only had eight slots to create a new Alpha Flight Team, who would they be? And as an additional bonus, if you had five more slots for a Beta Flight Team, who would they be? Living or deceased....

    Let the fun begin!

    It's always tempting to just go with the classic lineup, but I'd rather mix things up just a smidgen.

    Alpha Flight:

    Guardian (Heather Hudson) - Leader
    Aurora
    Box (Madison Jeffries)
    Diamond Lil
    Talisman (Elizabeth Twoyoungmen)
    Puck (Eugene Judd)
    Puck (Zuzha Yu)
    Snowbird

    Northstar's pretty happy with the X-Men these days, so I left him out, and Shaman can kinda be around as team doctor, if not an active member. Let him retire in relative peace~ Throw in Zuzha because A) I like her and would like to see her in a proper series, and B) Pulling Northstar and Shaman splits up two on-team families, and that's always one of my favourite elements of AF. Gotta make up for it somehow. The only hard cut was Walter, he and Marrina can be special ops or something.

    Beta Flight:

    Vindicator (James Hudson) - Leader/Mentor
    Purple Woman
    Witchfire
    Transonic
    Flashback (Jenny Monroe)

    I didn't mean for Beta to turn into Mac's Angels, it just kinda happened that way.

    @MistressMerr LOVE IT! Thanks for the post. I would have moved Puck (Zuzha Yu) to Beta, removed Transonic and added Northstar to Alpha myself based on your list. But I still love it.

    Each of my replies will change with every post. I will value every idea.

    Again, thanks for the post! Great team!!

    ALPHA FLIGHT:
    My Alpha Flight would be led by Mac, and have more of an edge that we saw in Alpha Flight: Fear Itself. I believe that cutting edge would make more fans appreciate and respect Alpha Flight. Northstar would remain with the X-Men, because he's getting plenty of good use there. Yukon Jack was a character, I actually liked and would have liked to have seen more from him. I'd build around the "future" of what Yukon Jack does when he marries Snowbird, and perhaps work on a relationship between them (where he wants her, but she wants nothing to do with him, remaining the aloof Snowbird I enjoyed).

    1. Snowbird
    2. Shaman
    3. Sasquatch
    4. Vindicator (Mac)
    5. Aurora
    6. Marrina
    7. Puck
    8. Yukon Jack

    BETA
    1. Witchfire
    2. Radius
    3. Puck II
    4. Goblyn
    5. Talisman

    BETA Flight would be lead, on the field, by Talisman. But really, both Alpha and Beta, would report to Heather (who would not be in costume, but use computers and such to communicate to the team). Talisman would be there to keep Witchfire in check, who at times, feels the pull from her father's influence. I would have Puck II interacting with her father on the Alpha Flight team; often coming to a head, about how she shouldn't be doing this (according to Puck, because it's so dangerous). I would eventually make Witchfire as powerful as Magik, and make her a contendor for some powerful magic users in Marvel. I'd also focus on Goblyn and how she becomes extremely feral at times; and put her on par with folks like Wildchild and Sabretooth.

    WOW @Tawmis!! That's a great team and back story. I have nothing to say here except I should have added extra slots for inactive team members to the list fr support. Your use of characters like Heather Hudson, Shaman and Puck (Eugene) show some depth. And I am a BIG fan of Yukon Jack (among others not mentioned yet). Love the background for Beta Flight.

    I'm gonna completely switch stuff up:

    My 8-member Alpha Flight would be:
    1. Vindicator (this'd be Windshear wearing the Guardian armour) - Mac and Heather would both retire from superheroing, just help run the team and do scientific research for Department H, etc.
    2. Box (Roger Bochs - I'd find a way to bring him back)
    3. Puck
    4. Talisman (I'd continue her relationship with Puck, and have them dual-lead the team in the field)
    5. Citadel (prison work-release program)
    6. Aurora
    7. Snowbird
    8. The Shroud (why not?!)
    - Sasquatch would be more interested in science and trying to reverse the effects that the Sasquatch transformation is starting to have on his body, but he would be available to stop in and help when needed. Northstar and Jeffries are too entrenched in the US of A to be returning to Canada, me thinks.

    Beta Flight:
    1. Shaman, their leader
    2. Ghost Girl
    3. Flex
    4. Yukon Jack (and I STILL think it'd be funny if he was in love with Snowbird)
    5. Epsilon Red (Jeff Brown, wearing a new suit of Epsilon Black armour with a red motif)

    Just noticed your post, Tawmis - in particular, "perhaps work on a relationship between them (where he wants her, but she wants nothing to do with him, remaining the aloof Snowbird I enjoyed)."
    I believe we are thinking along the same wavelengths, or close to it!

    I enjoyed Yukon Jack as well! Thought he was interesting and unique enough! I love Alpha Flight, despite what they've been through. Written plenty of fanfic, about how I'd "fix" some of the things done to them over the years! Just to see them treated fairly!

    Cool idea putting Windshear in the Guardian suit. Heather and Mac could be parents also in their retirement, since they still have a daughter - SOMEWHERE.

    With all the magic in Alpha Flight, would be easy enough.

    Would be nice for Puck to get some love.

    You could put Murmur in there, since she got so little development.

    You think Northstar would settle with being on Beta Flight?

    I like the Epsilon Flight idea. But too many characters.
