    Default Omega so American

    It seems sad that Omega is basically Yankee cast-off characters.

    They could have sprinkled in more Canucks, or created some new faces

    Honestly, I doubt anyone but Joe Q would disagree with you. So many rich characters with so many story possibilities (AF defends Canada's soveriegnty from SHIELD, AF fights Plodex hordes, a new Master rises, Dreamqueen, AF takes out a Skrull battalian before they can infest the Earth, Sasquatch deciphers the Skrull code and saves many lives by killing hidden Skrulls before the War is a lost cause, AF defeats the Badoon who are trying to take advantage of the Skrull War.... and so many more stories) it is a no-brainer to bring back AF and do it without making it another Force Works.
    Keep your stick on the ice.

    Live it.

    It is sad more Canadian superheros aren't out there, DC has none that I know of, Spawn is by a Canadian but is not a canuck, not sure if any indie's are being printed these days either

    Technically, Marvel has/had quite a few Canadian superheroes (and villains), but they've whittled them down so much with depowerings, deaths, vacations to limbo that there is very few still active.

    These mutants haven't been stated as being depowered, so where are they?

    Feedback
    Flashback (we know he's sort of retired)
    Flinch
    Goblyn
    Manikin
    Ouija
    Persuasion
    Pathway

    Others:

    Daydreamer (with the Young Gods, if they're still alive)
    Sasquatch (he's sort of active)
    Snowbird (we know she's making an appearance soon...Maybe)
    Talisman (sort of, kind of active)
    Wild Child (we know he's evil...Again)
    Wolverine (we know he's solo and on every Marvel team, but Alpha or Omega)

    Dept K's Weapon P.R.I.M.E. team :P
    Tigerstryke
    Double-Trouble
    Killspree (not a very heroic name)
    Yeti

    ...And Deadpool (would he be considered an Anti-Hero? Isn't he getting a new solo book soon?)

    Who else would be considered "active" and out there somewhere?

    Deadpool was supposed to be Canadian (I don't know if that was retconned, though)...But all the Handbooks said he was.

    Tigerstryke works for the Candian Govt (like I said Dept. K), so it depends on what sort of mission they send him on, I guess.

    Major Mapleleaf Senior.

    He's retired, but when last we saw him he was alive and kickin... and capable of going toe-to-toe with Northstar.

    I always thought a couple of interesting stories might be to provide a little more context to his implied/perceived abuse of his son, Major Mapleleaf Jr. The memories that implied such to some, were those of a young, less favoured boy who was caught redhanded doing something his dad had expressedly forbidden afterall.

    I think such a story would redeem him in the eyes of those who are absolutely convinced he was a bitter old child abusing.

    And another, possinly related, would deal with the delibating psychological effects that the Super Soldier Serum has had on all it has been adminstered too... with the exception of Steve Rogers. It would also establish, as opposed to merely suggest, that a SSS program was indeed the origin of his powers.

    He would also be a good source for reminiscience type stories... untold tales of the Invaders (whom he is said to have fought alongside in WWII)or his early career figthing crime or whatever in Canada (which he is said to have enjoyed).

    There's Centrix who is a member of the Global Guardians.

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

    As for Weapon Prime, I recall they changed Killspree to Killjoy in the Northstar Limited Series (and the last time they were featured)

    Actually his name was originally Killjoy, it was changed to Killspree. I believed Marvel changed it to avoid legal issues with Steve Ditko's character Killjoy (I could be wrong about that...I recall hearing something about it).
