    So yeah, sorry, Walt's probably going to get the tar beat out of him. Especially by all four of them.
    It was also revealed in the handbooks and interviews the Crew was amped when they fought Walter.

    Wow.

    Yeah, re-reading I've decided Lobdell's Vol.1 run is my least favourite today.
    I like Alpha taking on Galactus.

    Tomorrow I'll like part of what Lobdell did with Wildchild/Weapon Omega though... *shrugs*

    Faborite non-Byrne story?
    In-series, #29, the fight with the Hulk. That great issue made Mantlo's other work more disappointing.
    Favorite of everything is definiely The Gift.
    www.kozzi.us

    recent publications in M-Brane Science Fiction and the anthology Things We Are Not.
    Forthcoming stories in Breath and Shadow, Star Dreck anthology and The Aether Age: Helios.

    Chaos War: Alpha Flight Walter finally conveys the importance of being a part of the original team and has some of his confidence back. The Beasts really put the Flight in a bind, but Snowbird, Shaman, and Northstar help reveal how insidious the plot is. Heather and Mac both show good leadership skills, and Walter doesn't forget about their baby. It's good to see Marrina back, even if she starts to turn into a monster. Aurora has gumption, fighting thrall-gods, surrounded by Wendigoes, in the midst of manifesting Beasts.

    The only thing that could've made it better was Puck and Talisman.

    I too loved the one shot (just wish it hadn't felt so rushed-could have been due to the excitement of reading a new Flight story though). THE GIFT was great too. Look at me sitting on the fence.
    BTW is the past tense for a Wendigo a Wendiwent or a Wendiwas?

    The fur don't come into it! That wendigo has shuffled off this mortal coil! The only reason it stayed on its perch is because you nailed it there!

    I'll go along with The Gift as well for faves. After reading that I would have been tickled if Claremont took over AF when Byrne left. He had a good voice for them.
