    And one more note, if you recall Alpha Flight 122 - 124, at least Witchfire becoming evil is not totally out of character. And if she remained good, she would probably still be in comic book limbo (and not the Belasco limbo)

    Good point. I think Witchfire has appeared about as many times as a villian as a hero at this point.
    Are you an Alpha Flight Collector?

    She makes a better villain than a hero.

    FP: But she is becoming more generic.
    I found that, in X-Infernus, you could've replaced her with any demonic villain and it wouldn't even have made a difference. They never even brought up that she used to be a hero - even though that was a major theme they played with for Illyana.

    Interesting you say that in a discussion of Witchfire and Purple Girl's use...
    But it is a good point.

    A lot of people gave up on AF after Byrne left, and I don't think people know much about the later stories.

    (Box as he is played is definitely the post-Byrne version. No longer a blue-collar worker, with the later version of the robot.)

    Default Marvel (re-)presents....alpha flight!

    Geez Louise, it's like you all are reading my mind! I've been thinking that a gradual reintroduction of Alpha Flight might be more successful than trying to sustain an on-going, right off the bat. My initial thought was a new(er) MARVEL COMICS PRESENTS, but with at least two different stories/characters/teams, to give something for everybody. Maybe a team-themed issue with a New Warriors story in addition to an Alpha Flight story. Value-added if both stories are 15 to 20 pages for $3.99. I'd buy it...when I had some money.
