    I've just moved Contest of Champions before Uncanny #139-140 / Machine Man #18, because UX140 was where the team was split up, and they seem to still be together in CoC. Also, I wanted them to have at least one roughly successful adventure before their split-up.

    As both Kitty and Cyclops are in the team and Jean isn't X-Men chronology put's it after UXM 161 and just before Hulk 277-9.
    However, as you say the team are clearly together and Wolverine calls Mac Vindicator so it's always been a tricky one to place.

    Gah! Just to complicate matters!

    I hadn't even considered what the X-Men's side of things was.

    I think I'll keep my new order, though. Partly because it is so difficult already, partly because I prefer to go by Alpha Flight alone (though we could put it after #1 - but where did they get the plane, then?), partly because I don't like to get rid of my CDs and my Best of New Order isn't a bad one.

    Lol! It would... As the thread should demonstrate, it's confusing to all of us!

    I wouldn't worry about it yet, though. You'll have to fill in all your gaps before it's even a problem for you.

    I just found this, just to complicate matters further:
    http://cmro.travis-starnes.com/groups.php?group_name=77

    I don't agree with his orderings, though (#1 takes place right before #2 in his version, though it's been stated to be several months earlier).

    That's a reading order, not a character chronology. What reading order would you suggest if you don't want to read #1 then #2?
    Are you an Alpha Flight Collector?

    It looked like an attempt at a chronological reading order.

    Suggestion:
    Alpha Flight #1
    Marvel Two-In-One #83 - 84 - Thing needs Walt's help as a biochemist, fights Sas; then they get together with the team (minus Puck and Marrina, who hadn't been invented yet) to fight proto-Great Beast Ranark
    Incredible Hulk #279 - Big crowd scene; Hulk gets accepted by the world, and AF is there. They make a mini-speech
    Marvel Two-In-One ann 7 - The Champion takes on all the strong guys, including Sas who has a decent-sized role
    Rom Spaceknight #56 - 58 - AF help Rom fight Wraiths in Canada. The final issue is one of those where they're still around to follow up the previous ones, but don't really have a role. Byrne covers on 56 and 57.
    Alpha Flight #2

    Some of those are on the new list before #1.

    Garry PM'd me a while ago to let me know I made a mistake on the first page: it's Madame Menace, not Madame Masque who they fight in Machine Man #18. I haven't been able to edit the post, but thought I'd post this at a completely random moment.
