    I didn't mind Wire, he didn't do too much for me, but then I've never been one for the "Big Gun" type. I would probably have like him more had he just used his powers.

    Now this one shocks me! I thought he was a great character! That is unless you are talking about Mantlo's crummy version of him, rather than Byrne's version...

    Yep, it was Mantlo's Bochs that really rankled me. Mantlo had a few gems here and there, but his writing was mostly really grating and wretched, thoroughly trashing our team!

    Also, I have to say that I don't understand the hatred people have for the 2nd series' new members. Honestly, I like them. I know that people would prefer to have the veterans come back, but I actually like Murmur a lot.

    Maybe we should be grateful if we see ANY of them used, you know? Marvel still isn't going to give Alpha Flight the chance that it deserves. Readers are already taking bets on how long the series will make it until it's cancelled, and that's sad to me... I really like it.

    Yay, Mantlo really buchered the character of Roger, as he did with many, or most. The John Byrne Boches was a great character!

    I also enjoyed v.2, and am enjoying v.3.

    I actually liked Flex but hated Murmur for obvious reasons, ****!!!!! Stereotype of a french canadian with an ENORMOUS fake FRENCH accent, and when I say FRENCH, I mean FRENCH fron FRANCE and not from anywhere near FRENCH canadian and even QUEBECERS as a best accent than THAT!!!! HOW CAN THAT ***** SPEAK WITH SUCH AN ACCENT WHEN RAISED IN HULL HOUSE, WHICH WAS IN ONTARIO?

    ...euh... I think I went mad for a minute there. And don't make me start about wire ...

    My problem with volume two was that until the original team re-appeared, no-one on the team behaved like someone on AF should. Or maybe it was the fact that it was very badly written, but it wasn't just AF, New Warriors vol 2 and Nova vol 3 definately didn't set the world alight. Definately prefer vol 3 over vol 2, but vol 1 over both.

    Bolloxs (test )
    Del

    Driftwood: Well, I got about a foot and a half. Now, it says, uh, "The party of the second part shall be known in this contract as the party of the second part."
    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!

    LOL. Yes, It's Del's fault! I've been corrupted by Del, he is like the devil... help me, help me. I won't talk bad again like that.

    Actually I would like to know. Dani_Moonstar, what you find interesting in Murmur? I could tell you in a calmer way (and I promise I will net yell or get censured) why I don't like her.

    What do I like about Murmur? I like how Murmur was a wild card in the team... you really didn't know to whom she was loyal. Her motives were mysterious... while she did carry herself as a bit of a ****, I think it was more than that. I think she has deeper layers that we just never got to see. Also, I enjoyed her power... I know Murmur seemed like a mixture of Aurora and Persuasion, but I did like her.

    See, I think AFv2 had it right when they introduced new characters. New characters are never a bad thing... I wasn't a long-time fan of the series, so I read it with no expectations or preconceived notions of what it SHOULD be. And I really, really loved it. Especially Murmur.

    I think Murmur could have been interesting, mostly after she was injured, she was less a **** and stereopycal, but it came too late in the serie. She should have had more development. Their was also the her fear of 'bibitte' (what is the word in english? like insects, worms???) Anyway, that could have been interesting if we had seen more. I don't think her loyalty was a mystery, she was loyal to herself and her motives where selffish, imo. I also think she could have been more than a ****, but not much had been shown to support that. She started to be more interesting, imo, when she got injured and she really feared to be put out of AF.

    Her powers where not really original, but that's not the most important thing for me in a characters, it's the personality. For me, she was insulting. I know, I'm asking too much in the detail, but that accent was so fake, I could not stand it. Everything in her said French and not French Canadian or Quebecer. We have only 2 french canadian characters in Marvel, and both are ****s, come on!!! Aurora at least is the first and she had 2 personalities. Plus, I liked the 1st Aurora, the one before the power changed, she was sexy but not dumb or vulgar and Byrne had kept the fragile balance and avoid the stereotype of the easy french girl. Murmur's accent was one from a french girl and not one coming from Quebec and very far form a girl that grew up in Ontario.

    I always thought she was mixed up in the head and that she acted the way she thought people expected of her (see the stereotype) but see absolutely wonted to be loved and accepted by everyone.
