    Not letting Mantlo write the book for as long as he did. I would have pulled him by issue 50. His overly-long stint of writing gave AF a reputation that they still have yet to shake.

    1. How long have you been collecting Alpha Flight?

    Since AF (Vol.1) #106. I was told that a character had come out of the closet, and to get it before it sold out. Not knowing anything about these characters, I went and started getting the back issues.

    2. What was your first memory of Alpha Flight? If recent, what was your first reaction?

    Thinking back, I remember getting (vol.1) #1 in a grab bag and reading it (I was ten) and, looking at all of them saying, "Not a single cool team in the lot." It was six years later and after reading the back issues leading up to #106 when I fell in love with the team.

    Vindicator
    Sasquatch

    Mantlo :::shudders:::

    13. Who is your favorite Alpha Flight artist?

    John Byrne

    14. Who is your least favorite Alpha Flight artist?

    Scott Clark (??). The guy who drew the first seven or so issues of Vol.2

    15. If you could undo one thing in Alpha Flight history, what would it be?

    I think it would have to be the 'Quest for Northstar' story arch that revealed that Aurora and Northstar were half-elf.

    1. How long have you been collecting Alpha Flight??

    Since Vol 1 #6

    2. What was your first memory of Alpha Flight? If recent, what was your first reaction?

    Uncanny X-Men #139 - 140. The earlier issues that featured AF didn't make it to the UK in large numbers due to sea frieght problems or something, so I didn't read that appearence for years. My abiding memory of that has to be Nightcrawler jumping up on Wolvie as SnowBear comes through the door.

    3. Who is you favorite Alpha Flight character?

    Probably Heather

    4. Who is you least favorite Alpha Flight character?

    Was Radius, but unfortunately he died so I would now opt for Murmur

    Pestilence

    6. Who is your least favorite Alpha Flight villain?

    Razaar

    7. What do you think is the best issue / story-arch from Alpha Flight?

    The Search for Langowski vol 1 #23-24

    Heather in original armour
    Snowbird
    Puck (original)
    Sasquatch
    Maddy Jeffries as Box
    Nemesis
    Windshear

    9. If you were to be stuck on a desert island with one member of Alpha Flight, Who would it be (powers can not get you off the island)

    Puck, no matter how long you were stranded, you would never tire of listening to his life stories.

    10. Who was/is/could be the best leader of Alpha Flight?

    Heather, experience and humanity, also willing to confront interfering authority when needed.

    11. Who is your favorite Alpha Flight writer?

    Byrne

    12. Who is your least favorite Alpha Flight writer?

    Mantlo

    13. Who is your favorite Alpha Flight artist?

    Toss up between Byrne and Brodderick

    14. Who is your least favorite Alpha Flight artist?

    Calimee makes it to the winning post, just in front of Dunc.

    15. If you could undo one thing in Alpha Flight history, what would it be?

    Kidnapping and hypnotizing of Maddy, plus most of vol 2

    Fiorello: Well, I don't know about that...
    Driftwood: Now what's the matter?
    Fiorello: I no like-a the second party, either.
    Driftwood: Well, you should've come to the first party. We didn't get home 'til around four in the morning... I was blind for three days!

    Murmur, Manbot, Radius, Walt as a woman, Major Maple Leaf(1)... there is no way Wyre was the worst character on either run.

    Good reply, your right on with all of them. But Wyre, to me, was just totally unnecessary as a character. It was like they said "Hey we need a guy kinda like Cable but he has to have really nasty back hair"

    I'm with you Phil, Wyre was an excellent character, at least he made Wildchilds origin believable. Then again, I like Manikin, so what do I know

    1. How long have you been collecting Alpha Flight?
    Well, I had issue #3 bought for me as a child and loved it since then, although I didn't start to seriously collect and get all the back issues until much later.

    2. What was your first memory of Alpha Flight? If recent, what was your first reaction?
    Sitting at my grandparents house on the Saturday evening that I had the comic bought me, reading it and wondering who these fabulous people where and copying the drawings from it and wishing I could draw like the artist could!

    3. Who is your favorite Alpha Flight character?
    Aurora (and Northstar... and... and... hell, I like them ALL!)

    4. Who is you least favorite Alpha Flight character?
    That's a toughy - I'm currently re-reading the original series and haven't gotten to any characters that I can't stand the sight of yet... although I seem to remember that I never saw the point of Windshear...

    5. Who is you favorite Alpha Flight villain?
    LOVE the Dream Queen!!!!

    6. Who is your least favourite Alpha Flight villain?
    Can't think of any right now, maybe Bedlam - he seemed so easily defeated!

    7. What do you think is the best issue / story-arch from Alpha Flight? EEEK - another hard one, I love the initial Bryne run, also love the Dream Queen saga.

    8. What do you consider the Alpha Flight "Dream Team"?
    Heather Hudson (maybe call her Guardian but don't have her with powers), Northstar, Puck (original), Sasquatch, Box (Madison), Shaman, Snowbird, Aurora, Talisman, Persuasion and Diamond Lil. I'd also like to see loads of the other ex-Alphans, maybe Pathway, Goblyn and a few others in Beta Flight with Marrina as a teacher for them.

    9. If you were to be stuck on a desert island with one member of Alpha Flight, Who would it be (powers can not get you off the island)
    Northstar or Puck (original)

    10. Who was/is/could be the best leader of Alpha Flight?
    Heather as Heather - I always thought it was an interesting concept of having a 'normal' person as leader, also on re-reading the issues with Heather as Vindicator I have to day that I prefer her without the battlesuit.

    11. Who is your favourite Alpha Flight writer?
    Probably Byrne - like most fans I felt I could do better than all the other writers!

    12. Who is your least favourite Alpha Flight writer?
    Not sure, I think Mantelo stayed with the book too long and some of his later stories were a bit boring (after issue 50), so possibly him.

    13. Who is your favorite Alpha Flight artist?
    Probably Bryne - he has a certain style.

    14. Who is your least favorite Alpha Flight artist?
    Not sure, but some of them seemed a bit dodgy!

    15. If you could undo one thing in Alpha Flight history, what would it be?
    Bringing back Mac from the dead - he should have stayed dead! Killing off Snowbird - she was so underused.
