    Yeah, that's a bizarre revelation. I occasionally see DF at comic shows here in NYC. I'll ask him about it next time I run into him. I wonder if he remembers the AF pitch!
    Are you an Alpha Flight Collector?

    I remember reading about this before... imagine how much exposure Alpha Flight would have gotten with Cable in the mix.
    Also, I seem to recall an article mentioning that Wyre was created to be a similar, "Cable-like" character for the team... any truth to that?

    Why the vague response and no lead to it?

    If we could always remember everything, life would be boring!

    A lot... but would the resulting book have been much good?

    It'd have to be. Cable, Wyre, Chord (New Warriors), Bastion (Team Titans... hey, that's not some kind of filament!) all very similar characters.

    I never considered Chord (from the New Warriors) to fit that nitch though. He wasn't super into guns and being over the top.

    He was into guns (even if not as much as the other two), led / taught / mentored a team of youngsters, was a tough merc type, and was named after wire. He fits to me. :/
