    Second, it depends what they mean by immortal (if that's the exact word). Hercules is immortal, but he can be killed - just not by old age or natural causes.
    *shrugs* They just said immortal, such as Shaman said the host was immortal, even Wolverine in his first apperance said he was immortal and an attack that should have killed him Wendigo quickly rose again as the same human host. Then in Marvel Preview when the Wendigo host was transformed back into a human, while Werewolf of the Night watched on he (the host) commented that he was immortal not just the spirit.
    Shaman should have some idea of this, as he's a magical expert. The others not so much. It's incredibly tough, sure, and regenerative, but neither that nor immortal (if it means he doesn't age) is automatically the same as unkillable.

    Well She Hulk #16 pretty much proved my point the mortal form of Wendigo can't be killed. He had a HUGE hole in him and his heart cut out and was fine in hours.

    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!

    Hmmmm...That could be a contradiction of the Wolverine story(Guest-starring Alpha Flight) involving the Wendigo and Jean Pierre Mauvais, Who killed the Wendigo by ripping it's heart out (then devouring it to become the Wendigo, which also is a bit contrary to Marvel's Wendigo legend). Although, that particular Wendigo could have regenerated after the event and rose from the dead too...Who knows?

    I didn't take the Mauvais one to serious as Mauvais cut off the Gods of the Arctic connection to the world and Wendigo is one of their creations. So he mostly likely got weaker just like Snowbird was without it.

    Was Wyre a member of Alpha Flight? I know he appeared in a few issues, but was he a member? If not, what was his status relative to the team(s)?
