    Je vulais juste dire que le Canada est aussi Francophone donc je vois pas pourquoi je devrais parler anglais !! lol
    Oh, you don't have to speak english if you don't want, the forum is primarily an english forum, but you can speak whatever language you want, I just can't guarentee that many people will respond. Consider that we have over 200 members, and probably less than half (without doing a count) are Canadian, and maybe 50% of those have some understanding of french, and probably 20% feel comfortable reading french, and 10% feel confrotable writing it.

    I'm not quite sure what you mean about "our federal system considering France is not a federation"

    And I DO like to lump Quebec in with the rest of Canada. I consider them a very important part of our country, both historically, and in present times. I want Quebec to stay as a part of this country, and as a proud Canadian, am honstly somewhat insulted at the desire of the separatists to leave the country. I think Quebec deserves to be treated as a culturally distinct part of Canada, as do the members of the Fist Nation. Now this is WAY off topic, if there is desire to continue this converstion, I will split it into a new thread.

    I've been trying to understand what you mean before posting a reply, but I haven't been able to figure out if Dept. H's work isn't so secret [capturing Heather and Puck; creating a bio-hazardous "Weapon X" that goes renegade; getting its own headquarters blown up/having Zodiac wreck it], how is anything about Dept. H secret?

    AFV1# 13 indicates that Dept. H was supposed to be very secret. To support this, Canada's own media could only identify Alpha Flight as a Canadian strike-force in MARVEL TWO-IN-ONE# 83.

    I hadn't even made a connection between Alpha Flight's Agent K and MIB. You guys are goooood!

    If taken to be like CSIS then Dept. H isn't a secret organization but an organization that deals in secrets. IMO it is the 'face' behind which the other sections (like Dept. K) hide.

    I would guess that JB originally wrote it as a secret section of the government and that later writers brought it out of the shadows.

    Damn! Get someone in here and wipe his memory, NOW!

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

    The Dept H in 1 #1, the H in v1 #120, and the H in v2 were three different entities. The huge, obvious headquarters was built late in v1, before they got -so- secretive. (But after the equally secretive, but less conspirational, v1#1 version.)
    The Dept isn't secret. Its work is.

    Who would buy a book called "Department H"? Think about all the stories a writer could come up with through that.

    Default Vol. 2 was about Dept. H anyway, not AF

    Instead of taking another gamble on reviving ALPHA FLIGHT outright too soon, a "Department H" mini-series might be a very good idea. Many loose ends and frayed plot threads could be explored from volume 2, which a lot of people like (sorry, but I'm not one of them). Depending on the sales, it could be the springboard for a new AF series or mini-series. This could be the mini-series that brings AF back.
