    On one hand, being a geek I want to tell the best comic book story possible, as someone who came up on Claremont & Miller's Wolverine as well as stuff like God Loves, Man Kills and even Kraven's Last Hunt which is probably my favourite Spider-Man story. Believe it or not, John Byrne's Alpha Flight was one of the biggest influences on the twist we have in episode 7 - the fact that you could do that, it rocked my world when I read it back in the day. People sometimes say because it's comic books it can't be serious drama, but if you're a long-term reader of comics you know darn well some of the best storytelling comes from this.

    EDIT: Read that pre-coffee.

    The biggest twist in Byrne-Flight is clearly #12... they couldn't do that, surely?

    Maybe they could. Would certainly make things interesting. Of course, they could also do a few other things: Reveal that one of the superheroes' powers is really from a bad source (a la Sasquatch), make someone mentally ill, have a team member turn on another team member and go nuts, etc. Lots to choose from!

    if the twist is the one we are all thinking off, that kinda makes the other episodes anticlimactic lol

    yeah Alpha Flight 12 is the inspiration with a main character dying. No where close to the comic and if he didn't say that in the interview would never have guessed that was the inspiration

    I'm not too surprised that it's not obvious as an inspiration.

    How many episodes in this season?

    Yeah, I'd never have guessed there was any AF nod there.
    Nicely done though.
