    Default Some News Out of Fan Expo SPOILERS

    In an article from Newsarama FVL is reported as saying:
    Alpha Flight’s Fred Van Lente appeared as well, to great applause from the Toronto audience, and said that the team will next have to deal with being a group of renegades of sorts. He also mentioned their involvement in the Commonwealth of Heroes — it seems Canada isn’t the only non-American team that Marvel wants to talk about. Expect Captain Britain, Taskmaster, and Wolverine to appear in the book's pages soon.
    Here's the link to the article.

    Hm. NOT the reveal we all hoped for, then? To me, it sounds a bit 'underwhelming' at the moment, like I need to go and take a nap or something.

    well, hate to sound optimistic here, but wouldnt that suggest something past issue 8? i mean, we know the solicits up to 6, and i can't imagine wolverine or capt britian just popping in, sounds more like a story arc.

    Only on an Alpha Flight forum would you hear someone say they hated to be optimistic! However, I was thinking the same thing, varo. Though we know at least one of those guys are showing up within the series, be it ongoing or not, it would seem like too much to cram all three of the characters mentioned into a maxi.

    exactly. plus, the series is already being numbered as #5, #6, etc..... the x(of 8 )has been dropped. i really wish we could have heard the alpha panel, i know it was unofficial, but it would have been nice to hear from fvl, dale and even chris claremont.

    still crossing my fingers. theres 2 possible panels, cb and the next big thing one.

    btw, anyone have any clue what this "commonwealth of heroes" thing is?

    alright i pieced it together, i'm like a regular columbo. someone asked fvl on formspring:

    which brings you to the page and showing the cb panel at 5:30.

    soooooooo.........i'm gonna say they make a announcement about a ongoing there.


    you heard it here first

    Nice work, Columbo!

    be that as it may, I still find the little bit that FVL said about what was upcoming, to be very underwhelming.

    Hands up, anyone who thought that Taskmaster wouldn't be appearing in this series?

    Hands up, anyone who thought that an appearance by Wolverine in an Alpha Flight comic wasn't long overdue? Anybody here think that he shouldn't maybe pop in and say "Hey bubs, nice to see you are alive again! Sorry i missed your funeral, but i guess that's all moot now, eh? Toss me a Molson!"

    Furthermore, like, what comic DOESN"T Marvel put Wolverine in ?!?

    Captain Britain...okay, at least that was a surprise.

    Still finding it all underwhelming. Hopefully there is a lot more revealed tomorrow, and it is more exciting (plot-wise, I mean).

    And, not meaning to say that issues with Cap Brit, Wolverine, and Taskmaster won't be AWESOME when i finally read 'em... I like this creative team, and think they are doing a fine job. Just wish Fred coulda leaked a bit more today, that's all.

    That Formspring quote is specifically about 'Destroy' though.

    It's not just that no announcement was made yet on the "ongoing or maxi" debate.

    It's more that the reveal of future characters to appear in AF was...boring. Completely not unexpected.

    I'd prefer a series without guest stars personally.
    For me the lack of other characters means more chance for AF to shine.

    I always wanted more guest stars so other readers would discover AF. I like that the team has their own little corner of the MU to play in, but sometimes you have to remind people they're still a part of it. And it goes without saying that any team -- any character -- should shine in their own title.

    Let's hope whatever we hear today will be good news of some sort, whether an ongoing, or more maxis/minis in the future.

    See, I'd rather have AF guest star in other ongoing series to try and attract attention.
    If we have only got 8 issues I'd rather not spend half an issue focusing on Wolverine.
