    Default Who will be the betrayer in Vol.4?

    So, it's been stated in interviews for Volume 4 that the team will be betrayed by one of their own members.

    For fun, who do you think it will be and why?

    From the interview:
    Van Lente said that while the government turns against Alpha Flight, but some members of Alpha Flight side with the government.
    It sounds like there will be a few heroes who join with the gov't against AF, and I'm guessing it will be some of the other non-original members like Talisman, Earthmover, Persuasion, etc. Characters who are still around, but not appearing in any titles.

    I reckon some of the characters from vol 3. Nemesis immediately springs to mind.

    Driftwood: Well, I got about a foot and a half. Now, it says, uh, "The party of the second part shall be known in this contract as the party of the second part."
    Fiorello: Well, I don't know about that...
    Driftwood: Now what's the matter?
    Fiorello: I no like-a the second party, either.
    Driftwood: Well, you should've come to the first party. We didn't get home 'til around four in the morning... I was blind for three days!

    I can't see it being a non-Byrne character personally. Talisman at a push.
    Part of me wants to say Sas, but after CW:AF I think that'd be a bit much.
    The mention of Northstar's terrorist past makes me think he'll be very anti-government so it won't be him.
    The way FVL's mentioned fleshing out Guardian's character a lot more, so that could go either way as either a very pro-government character or as a great leader.

    In short... I'm still torn.

    I didn't think of it 'til I saw this poll, but I voted for 'somebody else'. It occurs to me that it's often the least suspected person... the butler did it.
    Like in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, when I knew people would die, but I never expected one of them to be ****!!!

    I voted Puck. Have to stay with my original thought. He's in Hell, being manipulated by the god of fear.

    Of the others listed, most likely candidates to me are Sasquatch (who has shown himself to side with the government over rational thought on Omega Flight) and Vindicator (can't think of anything more intense than Heather and Mac coming to blows).

    I picked Snowbird. I never thought she had all of her screws in. A well-written Snowbird has a single-minded childish mind and would fall prey to making a choice out of blind trust or faith in something that an adult wouldn't believe.

    I'm thinking it'll be one of the later-era Alphans, but out of the Byrne creations, I'd say Walter on an outside bet -- he's not a malicious soul, but he has a history of making decisions that should be filed under "WTF were you thinking, dude?"

    Aurora. Wasn't she part of that dreadful Weapon X title a few years back? God knows what state her head is in now. I actually gave up on buying any title with an X on it years ago, I'm far more selective, so I may have missed something big (like she is no longer schizophrenic etc etc).

    Puck, also, as a second.

    Marrina, as a third. She's always slicing some ally open. *sigh*

    Not sure. But it is funny how in all his interviews that I have read where he promotoes the new Flight comic, I cannot recall him ever really talking about Snowbird. Maybe you are on to something there, MD!

    The Fear Itself teaser makes me think I was on the right lines when I said this:

    I voted for Mac and it seems he may actually be the one now. I guess we'll see soon-ish.

    I too just reluctantly voted Guardian. Maybe his guilt factor with being the "poster boy" for Canada makes him go work for the Government. I really hope it isn't him though.
