    Default Word on the street

    The word on the street is "Alpha Flights".
    Literally.

    Seriously, I don't know why 'Alpha Flights' was written on a piece of paper on the street this morning, but it was.


    (What? It's a slow news week for Alpha.)

    Well, clearly that is all the proof we need.
    The advertising and marketing wheels are in motion.
    Alpha Flight will be getting it's own regular series.
    It's written in stone... on paper... with ink.
    The Flight Forever !

    That alternate Liveworld reality from #75 could be one of them...

    I think that's a bit too vague unfortunately.

    Looking at the teasers 8 of the remaining 9 are looking like being:
    Renew Your Vows
    Years Of Future Past
    Civil War
    Armor Wars
    House Of M
    A-Babies Vs. X-Babies
    X-Men 92
    Age Of Apocalypse

    Hoping for at least Wild Child in AoA, which speculation is Niciezia will be writing...

    And the 9th looks to be Groot: http://marvel.com/news/comics/24212/...ries_this_june

    EDIT: This appears to be a non-Secret Wars title.

    Hope they get a really good artist to work on this one... I have a feeling the dialogue will be below par.
    Two dozen pages of "I am... GROOT". Not something I'm very interested in at the moment.
    The Flight Forever !

    Done right it could be good; akin to a Chaplin-esque silent movie.
    Probably not my cup of tea, but if it gets younger readers laughing and liking comics I'm all for it.

    Nicieza can be pretty good sometimes.

    Hail Hydra!

    + Links updated in Post #6

    (And not entirely sure why I mutated this thread into Secret Wars)

    I started off reading that with my usual 'oh, another series about heroes as villains' and finished with 'Alternate realities? Slightly skewed views of 'my' characters? Yeah, I love this sort of thing!' - especially since it will be about a hero. Even one who I never knew existed until now. (He has a son? Is he originally from 616?)

    (Because the original topic was little more than a one-off anecdote and Secret Wars is news to everybody here, and something we can all talk about?)
