    More quotes

    Fred just confirmed that Guardian and Vindicator will be in the book. *I* can confirm that Sasquatch, Shaman, Snowbird, Aurora and, yes, Northstar will all be involved.
    Old time fans will enjoy seeing things referenced, but you won't have had to read any past Alpha Flight books or Chaos War in order to pick it up.
    But as a result of Fear Itself, there is a change in government, and so Alpha Flight finds themselves as the country's "greatest traitors," and they must go on the run and figure out what is behind the government takeover.

    Some quotes from live chat

    The Canadian government has branded Alpha Flight traitors as a result of events in Fear Itself

    You may say I'm a dreamer...but I'm not the only one.

    Venom: I want to bite their heads off and shove my tongue down their neck holes.
    Songbird: Why?
    Venom: So I can lick out their hearts.

    “Basically, if John Byrne didn’t come up with it, we’re throwing it out,” said Van Lente who noted that through no intentional malice, the team had been subjected to a lot of bad continuity over the years. “I wouldn’t say we’re ignoring everything that came later, but we’re not going to be referring to an individual character’s multiple resurrections over the years…this is one of those stories that wants to start with a clean slate,” Pak added.
    As for which characters will or won’t be appearing and how, the team heavily hinted that Puck will appear in the series, and asked whether Northstar would continue his role in the X-Men line, they said that elements from those stories will make it in – including Kyle, Northstar’s boyfriend from “Nation X” – but overall he will become a full-time Canadian again.
    Well, I'm sold.

    And another good one

    Fred: They're using the clean slate provided by Chaos War to do a ground-level reboot. They're not ignoring everything that's come before, but they're not going to be referring to a character's multiple resurrections or anything like that. They don't want to get bogged down in the continuity.

    Ha, I totally buggered out of here for a while because the ridiculous negativity was driving me crazy, but this... what a thing to wake up to!

    Maybe it's just a pipe dream, but I'm hoping Jimenez does all the covers. *__*

    The Multiversity interview indicates that's the case. I hope they make some of those into posters, because damn!

    I'm truly sorry to hear that, especially since I'm one of the worst offenders.
    Din't mean to drive other fans away.

    That said, I stand by what I said before: "Hello."

    Too soon, man, too soon! Not. Funny.
    Even if it wasn't too soon, I still have two points to make about this;

    1) Not ever, not if your name is Bendis.

    2) FVL needs to tell him to shut his trap. How dare he ridicule the book that FVL is writing, before it even hits the stands? If you can't say something positive (and when it comes to Alpha, Bendis has proven that he cannot), then say nothing. And because this particular negative vibe is coming from Bendis, see #1 again.
