    Default Rating the Alpha Flight Characters

    Hey just want to gauge on which is your favorite Alpha Flight characters are. This is just for my own personal use, just to see who likes whom, because I was surprised to read in one thread that so many people liked Marrina.

    Below is a list and if you want you can write pros and cons and an explanation why you give them a rating out of 10……10 being your favorite, 5 their average, 0 being you want them dead.

    Sorry wasn’t sure how to organize some, because some have been in all the factions.

    Alpha Flight:
    Aurora (Beaubier, Jeanne-Marie)
    Box III (Walter Langkowski)
    Guardian I (Hudson, James MacDonald)
    Guardian II (Hudson, Heather MacNeil)
    Langkowski, Wanda
    Northstar (Baubier, Jean-Paul)
    Puck I (Judd, Eugene Milton)
    Sasquatch I (Langkowski, Walter)
    Sasquatch II
    Snowbird (Thompson, Ann)
    Talisman II (Twoyoungmen, Michael) [AKA. Shaman]

    Beta Flight:
    Box IV (Jeffries, Madison)
    Marrina (Smallwood, Marrina)
    Talisman I (Twoyoungmen, Elizabeth)

    Gamma Flight:
    Box I (Bochs, Roger)
    Gemini

    Omega Flight:
    Box II (Jerome Jaxon)
    Courtney, Delphine
    Crawley, Lillian Diamond Lil
    Eshu (Former Leader)
    Flashback
    Whild Child
    Smart Alec (Thorne, Alec)

    New Alpha Flight Team:
    Centennial (Princeton, Rutherford)
    Major Mapleleaf II (Saddler, Louis Jr.)
    Nemesis
    Yu, Zuzha (Puck 2)
    Yukon Jack (Yukotujakzurjimozoata)

    Madison Jeffries (Box) is my favorite, so I'd give him a 9. If he was written with a stronger personality, he'd get a 10.

    I like characters with cool powers that really can't work, like flight and such. Phasing into metal, make metal alive, that's nonsense, no wonder I like it. Same with Feedback and Windshear, just nutso but cool powers.

    Nemesis, Witchfire, Ghost Girl, Puck, Zuzha, Major Maple Leaf get over 5, too. Maybe more, but I'm tired.
    Keep your stick on the ice.

    Live it.

    A lot of these guys stuck a bit like red shirt ensign guys on star trek . Expendable story filler not to be taken seriously for any long term.
    New Alpha Flight Team:
    Centennial (Princeton, Rutherford) *7*
    Major Mapleleaf II (Saddler, Louis Jr.) *8*
    Nemesis *6* The revealing of her face lessened the character for me she was supposed to be so scary and she's just a regular girl
    Yu, Zuzha (Puck 2) *7* had some potential with a writer who knew how to use the word "eh?"
    Yukon Jack (Yukotujakzurjimozoata) *6* lots of unexplored potential.

    Villians
    Tech Noir *8*
    The rest of the new Omegas *3*
    'cept for the cat guy who's name escapes me *5*
    Master of the World *7* Got a bit of potential I think.
    Gilded Lily *7*
    Diablo *5*
    Pink Pearl *8*
    her gang *6*
    Super Skrull *6*
    Pestilence (sp) *8*
    Dream Queen *9*
    Nightmare *5*
    Marrina Plodex ***** *9*
    Great Beasts *8*
    Deadly Earnest *8*


    My opinion anyway.

    LOL , I knew I'd get a rise out of you . No stereotypes are intended on my part. If she was mexican we'd still like her if she's drawn pretty. So long as she's not saying" Si " " eet's bueno" etc. I also disapproved of Murmur's "Accent"

    End the bad stereotypes in comics speech. I agree. Now let's rate the alphans, People

    Hey now, leave me out of this! I have great respects for ALL pastry. Pastry is good. It's those French Pasties that leave a lot to be desired.

    LOL, quite the mouth you have, Mme. Valois. I didn't know you could PUT @!$(*&?%$# and %#%?&* in the same sentence. Isn't that a bit contradictory?

    Johnny Canuck...2 things
    1. It's great to see someone rate Tech Noir so high, I always thought she had potential

    2. The feral looking guy from Omega Flight is called SINEW

    Take Care

    King M:

    I know what you mean! The Master of the World IS about it as Alpha Villains go. Omega Flight could be cool if Marvel could come up with a better roster of villains, those one-dimensional 'Z'-Listers didn't quite cut it.

    Weapon Omega? Yeah, I wanted something a little obscure for the Alpha Waves Forum. I don't know, after reading Alpha Flight vol. #1 issue 102 I always thought the all-black "stealth" suits looked great. Too bad that's the only issue they EVER appear in!! Welcome to the forum man!!
