    I think I've figured out who the betrayer is!

    From all the clues that FVL has given us, I think the betrayer is: a new, male personality of Aurora's.

    I... actually get free coffee and donuts at Tim's. Crap, am I the Betrayer?

    That being said, I had to vote the last option. I love the original AF characters and I'd rather not see any of them turn their back on us.

    I now believe it to be Northstar.

    We know it's a male member. With the X-Men he would seem to have found a place where he feels comfortable, he has his sister with him etc. Now Alpha are back he could see that world disappearing. Aurora drifting away from him towards the team and Sas. Given his background he would be the least likely, so by law of averages...

    I don't think so.
    I think JP would be too obvious a choice given his past, his ties to the X-Men, his boyfriend being involved etc.

    I reckon Shaman.

    I'm gonna stick with Northstar for now, likely to change again at some point . He's the one with the least connections to Alpha, Aurora/Sas, Shaman/Snowbird, Mac/Heather and Marrina would just be happy to be back and with Alpha. If Cody gave Northstar the right incentive then I can see how he would relcutantly agree to lead 'Alpha Strike'.

    Yeah, I just think he's too obvious.

    No-one's mentioned Shaman at all so far so it'd be a shock.

    My guess (today) to Alpha Strike is it's led by Talisman & Persuasion. Which could be why Shaman turns traitor *shrugs*

    Listening to the Podcast doesn't help . The comment about the team splintering just muddies the water. I'm gonna give up trying to figure it, it hurts my head. I just want that issue in my hands A.S.A.P.

    Well, it has now been mentioned that there is tension between Mac and Heather over their baby. Seems likely that IF the government has their little girl, Heather'd be most likely to do anything said government asked to get her child back; it's a motherly thing, or so i am told.

    Ditto for Northstar, if we are right and Purple Woman has absconded his boyfriend.

    Motherly thing? You were told wrong. Only moms love their kids, not dads? What?

    Yes, you hit a nerve. Dads make great parents too. Some of us are pretty good at it. Go see the movie Taken with Liam Neesom for proof.

    If they do write Heather as the caring concerned mom and Mac as the uninterested, distant dad, I'm gonna be quite disappointed.

    From a generalized view, perception is that mothers would probably go further in actions to protect a child. In comics we tend to deal with generalisation more than reality. There's plenty of examples were a father has sacrificed his life to protect that of a child.

    I dont think the generalization is correct Dads are just as protective as moms. There are other generalizations in our society that are also wrong and would disappoint many of us if they were portrayed in a comic book .

    Not meaning to touch any nerves here (isn't that a surgeon's job?); we have all heard of a mother's instinct, something ingrained into a woman from carrying a life within her for (up to) nine months.

    A father's ability to protect his child at great lengths, would be based more upon something learned, rather than an instinct based mainly upon biology.

    It may not ALWAYS hold true, but, in general, it does hold true most of the time. And, yes, i DO know mothers without those instincts (or at least not very strong ones).

    NEVER, EVER, was it suggested that this has to do with loving a child more or less. And it was NEVER said by me that only mothers make good parents, either. Let's not find fault by putting words in one's mouth, okay? Again, if i hit a nerve, i am sorry i did so; but i still stand behind what i wrote. And, yes, i AM a loving father of one great girl.
