    Default Mac's hometown

    On both Marvel.com and marvel wiki, Guardians hometown is listed as London, Ontario. Does anybody know if and where this factoid is brought up in the comics themselves because I sure don't. In fact, the proprietor of one of the local comics claimed that in fact Mac is not from London Ontario, but rather one of the small towns outlying London such as St. Thomas, Woodstock, Lambeth, etc. but again he could not point me in the direction of where he found this information.

    I don't know either. Maybe the origin stories in #s 2 and 4?

    It also may never have been published, but when the character was originally drafted up, it could have been mentioned there.

    I know, for example, that Thunderbird (of UXM) never had his POB stated, nor Nightcrawler (back in the day), but both were stated in the MU Handbooks.

    Handbook! Mik, you fool!

    Yep, that says London, Ontario. Still not an in-comic thing, though.

    Can someone please tell which city that each AF member is from? Is Puck II the only one who went to college which I think was McGill University? Honestly, I am just curious what city each member of AF is from.

    That would be Etobicoke.

    You are a stupid seal with a small rooster. Translate that into french and you'll get it.

    Is that Old Etobicoke, New Etobicoke, or Diet Etobicoke?

    Cherry Etobicoke. Of course that joke only works when you read it as the pronunciation is: e-TOE-buh-co.
