    Marvel Two-In-One #84 Thing and Alpha Flight was the first comic book I ever bought.

    The story takes place in Winnipeg and I remember as a kid thinking how cool it was that superheros were fighting in my home town.

    Awesome! Hey Sasquatch17, there's another Winnipeg scene... in AF # 8 - that's where Delphine Courtney recruits Smart Alec into Omega Flight.

    Yes, that's right! See AF#79 for that. I love the all-couch headquarters. As if all Gamma Flight does is lounge around on couches waiting for Canada stuff to do.

    I love the all-couch headquarters. Can I get transferred there?

    Hulk #272 is a nice surprise.
    X & AF seems an odd choice, timeline wise.
    'Material from' MTUAnn7 is vague.
    And there's no definite confirmation of the SWII #4 pages...

    I might try and do a page count at some point.

    It looks like they're trying to be fairly comprehensive, so I'm gonna say it's the main story, not the brief back-up that's in the issue.

    Just to give you even more hope...
    I've got the Marvel Visionaries: Chris Claremont hardcover. In the table of contents, each story is listed as 'from' Comic, issue #. Which always implies to me excerpts.
    I've just gone through and checked every one I can (either by the original or another reprint), and none of the single-issue stories has so much as a page missing. (I didn't check the back-up stories from Classic X-Men or the annual, since I already knew they were excerpts.)

    I realise that what applies to one doesn't necessarily apply to the other, but it's still a good sign.

    The SWII #4 3pg confirmation came from [the editor] Jeph York.

    Ahh, yes. I'd forgotten the back up.
