    Talisman wouldn't need her origin changed.

    Talisman could be a spellcaster.

    Edit:
    Sorry, Phil, hadn't seen your comment above (which I basically repeated).

    Boards been quiet so thought I would ask a question about the movie....Who would you want to direct it? (I can only assume no one says Kevin Smith but he loves Canada).

    How would you feel if he (Kevin Smith) was to write a Alpha Flight series?

    Whedon.
    No question for me.

    Uh... Do you mean if Kevin Smith did?
    I'd read the first few issues, then be incredibly likely to drop the title like a hot rocks polka. He'd have to really surprise me with those first few issues to get me to keep reading.

    Then again, I guess I've never read his comics, so I can't really back that up.

    I corrected my previous post to show that I was meaning Kevin Smith. I like the job he did writing for the first 12 issues of The Green Hornet.

    I think an AF comic needs to be written by someone with an old school superhero sensibility. And I mean that in an extremely complimentary way.
    My first pick would be Kurt Busiek.
    Failing that Peter David, Ty Templeton or maybe Erik Larsen.

    Is there another way to take it?

    I do know that if I'm not enjoying the current style (for any given value of 'current'), the solution is not to give me an old title done in the current way.

    I don't know Templeton's work, though I think I've read some of it somewhere.

    Default Alpha Flight movie...

    In the past we have talked about the casting for the roles of Alpha Flight members. And yes I still believe that the roles of Aurora and Northstar should be changed to twin sisters and played by Shannon and Shauna Baker. Adam Beach as Shaman. Ashley Callingbull as Talisman. But that aside, who should be the villains and who do you think should play the villains.

    On another side note, hope everyone is doing well. I have yet to get a copy of Captain Marvel #1 but hope to get one this weekend.

    I don't remember the twins as sisters theory. I'm very used to them as brother and sister at the moment, though.

    I like the idea of DreamQueen as a villain, partly because she'd be fairly easy to pull off... though her powers less so. Then again, New Line managed it for years on a smaller budget.

    The Master would work, too. The Great Beasts, specifically Tundra, if they wanted to blow their budget.

    Those are my picks; but note: every Marvel movie villain so far has been an equivalent of the hero, same origin, often pretty much made by the hero. Hulk Abomination. Iron Man Iron Monger, Whiplash, Hammer, Extremis / A.I.M.. Captain America Red Skull. Thor Loki. Big Hero 6 guy with Hiro's nanobots. Ant-Man Yellow Jacket. Guardians (bunch of mostly aliens) bunch of aliens. I'm running out of memory, but you've got the idea.

    The most likeliest by a long shot, a very long shot, is Omega Flight.

    Yeah, Jaxon would make a lot of sense, film-wise.

    Joshua Lord as the Master would work IMO, more as a modern eugenicist megalomaniac. Delphine Courtney, Alec Thorne as his top scientists, Langkowski rejects him for AF, Puck is hired away from SHIELD to run security and after the Master tries to destroy H Langkowski becomes Sasquatch, Puck trains a team of him, Nemesis, Talisman, and one more, Heather reluctant to wear the suit, story writes itself.

    I'd want him to stick closer to the comics, which I think they could do, but I could see them doing your version.

    I've heard about that. Potentially quite fun!
