    Puck very briefly appears in today's Power Man & Iron Fist #7 (2 covers), and is likely to show up more in next month's #8.

    There's also a fun & cheeky non-appearance in today's Mockingbird #6.

    Does it make me less of an Alpha Fan that I stopped my subscription of captain marvel? I cut my subscription for two reasons: first in the 6 issues I read the the three former Alpha members (puck, sasquatch, and Aurora) are imho nothing but background characters and cardboard ones at that. I understand it's captain marvels book, but a supporting cast needs focus and character development as well, things they really do not get in this series. Like if this was my first introduction to Alpha Flight, I wouldn't even know Aurora had superpowers as she doesn't show them in the book once! Second, I know this may sound weird but I generally subscribe to comic series in which the title character shares (more or less) my morality on today's issues. Captain Marvel, both in alpha flight, and civil war, does not on so many levels it really devalues the reading experience for me in the former series to where I don't want to read it anymore.

    I'll admit I find most of the captain marvel issues dragging and overall slow. For new remembers yeah they haven't done a good job giving the supporting cast much backstory sans puck. In Ms.Marvlel (carols old book) they did a good job with sleepwalker, Arachne and machine man when they were working with her.

    Personally speaking, I wouldn't want them to get development in someone else's book.
    I'm just happy for them to be treated consistently and respectfully.

    Yankee, I haven't cancelled or anything, but I basically see them as furniture in that title. I can't blame you for cutting out.

    Doctor Strange:Last Days Of Magic (Oneshot)
    Now, this came out about 6 months ago and at the time I flicked through it and saw no Alphans.
    However; upon actually reading it on Marvel Unlimited with it's extreme zoomed state I noticed the final panel:


    So that's a reaaaaaaaaaaaaaally tiny Talisman and Shaman appearance.

    Is that the nanobots from The Middleman tying all the magic users in Marvel to the stake? Including Illyana, who technically belongs to Fox?

    It's cool to have a cameo, even a steps-removed one, in the MCU; but one minor issue I had with the movie, with the inclusion of Tina Minoru and especially Daniel Drumm was that it narrows the fields of magic. In the comics there are a lot of magics - sorcery, voodoo, sarcee, et al; in the movie, it seems to be just the sorcery.

    Oh, it's not MCU or film related.
    This was in continuity.

    Sorry, misunderstood there. I blame myself.
    Is that the trade collection of the first few issues of the new series that just started?

    Hmm. Not sure if that's either Talisman or Shaman. I'm hoping an artist or writer can confirm. It's just so super tiny.
    Are you an Alpha Flight Collector?

    The colour schemes don't match any of the other magic users:
