    Default The Proposal

    So, Astonishing X-Men #50 comes out this Wednesday (with some stores selling them on Tuesday).

    There were strangely no 4 page previews of the issue last week, and Marvel have mentioned that there'll be lots of media coverage, online, on tv/radio and in print about the proposal tomorrow.

    If your local/national newspaper highlights the story either online then let us know the link, if it's featured in print then please scan as much as you can and post it here for us.

    Providing it is Jean-Paul and Kyle that is

    Wow, Alpha Flight's going to be on TV! Neato! I'll set the DVR. Never thought I'd see Northstar on a network show...
    Are you an Alpha Flight Collector?

    Looking at the article on Bleeding Cool it looks like there are postcards in stores so make sure you grab a few of those! (And if anyone wants to keep some for non-US board members/mods/creators then I'm suuuuuuuuuuuuuuure that'd go down well )

    The rest of Alpha Flight will be at the wedding, nice.|

    How did Puck get front row sitting with looks to be Kyle's parents?

    Daniel Ketchum: Northstar and Kyle were the obvious choice for this story. We've seen their relationship grow over the past few years, across a number of titles: Uncanny X-Men, Nation X, and Alpha Flight. Whereas foisting this story upon another character would have been a forced step in their progression, we've been building toward this exact place with these two for about a year now, since gay marriage was legalized in New York State, making it a natural development. And, looking ahead, the marriage of two gay characters opens a number of avenues for future stories, and Northstar and Kyle are the characters best suited to explore them.

    This is going to be some good exposure for Alpha Flight.

    I don't think it is though.
    Very few articles are actually mentioning AF and just focusing on the gay X-Man part.

    That Dustin Weaver wraparound cover is amazing. I see Wolverine and all the current members of Alpha Flight. I don't expect to see Vindicator on there since she is on the run, but where is Madison Jeffries on the cover? It's like trying to find Waldo with so many X-Men in the background.

    but some are and the issue in question will have them appear as seen on the cover. Any publicity is good for AF

    Doubt he will be there, as he is on Team Cyclops and seems no one from Cyclops X-Men is there.

    I see Dr Nemesis standing behind Wolverine. If Northstar showed up for Madison's bachelor party, the least Madison could do is show up for Northstar's wedding. Unless Jeffries is lying unconscious in a sewer underneath the Avengers Academy?

    And did it seem odd to anyone here that Scott Lobdell never showed Madison and Lillian's actual wedding. Almost seemed like Alpha Flight 106 should have been the wedding of Madison and Lillian and then Alpha Flight 107 used for the Northstar story.

    Oh I agree, that was why I really wanted someone to update the Alphanex entries beforehand.
    And why I made sure I was off work yesterday so I could get the article up straight away and then spend the next 5 hours on twitter pimping the site.
