    She's also awesome in Go, a staggeringly underexposed movie.

    Don't know that I see her as Heather, but all things are possible.

    Yeah, GO was awesome.

    You know, I think either Lilly or Warren could be great for Heather or Narya. Both work for me. Lilly would have to dye her hair for Heather, but somehow life would go on.

    Of course, by the time an AF movie is made, both of these women will probably retired or dead. Marvel can barely manage a worthy AF comic book, really. (Gripping about MML, Puck II, and Yukon Jack begins here....)

    Interesting take on the flag suit.

    I just stumbled across this article while googling AF info:

    http://filmforce.ign.com/articles/200/200332p1.html

    Seems we aren't the only ones thinking about this.

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

    Wow, that's an impressive find... I'll admit I'm surprised... maybe not because the article is a little older and its possible the article passed by me closer to its original release date... but I thought I would've remembered such an article... oh well... certainly some interesting commentary or ideas... although I'm intrigued by it, I'm not really sure if I like the idea of De Niro as Puck... I'm still quite happy with our selection as a reasonable individual who could pull off a good dwarf superhero.

    Freaks? Freaks?

    “damaged goods”
    Okay, not exactly the phrase I'd use... but at least the general idea behind much of the Alpha appeal to me...
    The ability to defy death can be achieved...
    It is a state acquired through compassion not greed...

    I don't like this revision very much. Sounds too much like X-Flies meets the X-Men.

    The whole "sinister Dept H" idea has become very deflated for me. If AF became a movie, I hope Dept H would never be mentioned.

    Besides, Department H sounds too much like "Preparation H" to me.

    Also, I think re-casting Puck as a mere "dwarven thief" and murderer doesn't do him much justice. Byrne's vision was much more interesting.

    And making Bochs a betrayer? How horrid!

    I've already said it (but I like repeating myself): treat Byrne's vision as canon, and the core fans will be grateful. Screw with that and you risk alienating them. Especially if the revision is less interesting than Byrne's.

    Notice that he says the film would focus on Heather and Puck, but barely mentions Heather. What will she do, other than become horrified about her dead husband's evil deeds?

    (My version may have the same flaw. I'll go check....)

    I think I still prefer Estella Warren as Heather. Pardon my lousy Photoshop skills.

    Oew, no. Not another X-Flies meets X-Men. That's sooo last century!

    (Same thing, serious tone: )
    I got tired of Marvel ripping off the X-Files constantly in the 90's. More, I got sick of them, with their usual attitude, going 'X-Files is popular, X-Files has gov't conspiracy, ergo gov't conspiracy is popular, ipso-facto let's put gov't conspiracy into every title we produce. Vis a vis! Concordantly!'
    (Okay, that got a little less serious.)

    It's a huge part of what I hated about v2.

    Well, Departments A through G were complete failures, but Department H feels pretty good on the whole...

    Okay, now say it to Marvel. And get them to listen. I'd be grateful for one. The grateful not dead.
