    Default Secret Warriors #24

    This issue, which came out last week, features some Alpha related characters.

    The apparent children of Flashback (Gardner Monroe), identified as Jenny and Malcolm Monroe appear as part of one of Fury's ill-fated earlier teams of Secret Warriors. They don't make it out of the book alive unfortunately (none of the characters introduced in this issue do), but I thought their introduction was pretty neat for what it was worth.

    Nice spotting!

    Was there an image of Flashback at all, or just mention of him?

    It's played very slyly. If you were not aware of your Alpha history you wouldn't know. They're simply called the Monroe twins and they live in Calgary. They are dressed in Flashback's colours (not his costume, mind you, but black and white formal wear) and exhibit his powers, but he and Alpha are not explicitly mentioned.

    Yeah, comicvine seems to support your logic, so I guess it's pretty much official

    Yeah but when they're made to just die and die in the very issue they're introduced in, there's little hope. Especially if tied to an obscure character like Flashback.

    I mean technically, easy enough for them to still be alive; if, like Flashback, it was some future version of themselves was killed, and their normal bodies are elsewhere.

    Exactly what i was thinking. Should somebody desire to use them in the future, they can.

    I haven't read the issue in question, so could there be the chance for more pre-death flashbacks of them in the rest of the arc?

    Yeah its definetly Flashback's kids, and they actually looked kind of cool.

    It's iffy if they came back, as Nick Fury's son died in the same explosion but we shall see.

    A poster on another board scanned a pic of Flashback's kids. This is their "Prime" bodies

    EDIT: (IMAGE REMOVED DUE TO FILE SIZE)
