    - Are Purple Woman and Citadel imprisoned as terrorists?


    Don't know, but would assume the brainwashing defence might give them a pass.

    - How does Citadel go to the bathroom?


    Maybe there's one built into the suit?

    - Who encased Citadel in that suit, and who is he?


    Weapon Plus did according to the Marvel Database.

    -
    Does anyone know that Heather killed those people (her relatives)? Is she wanted for murder?


    I assume the deaths of her relatives can't be hidden, but again the brainwashing defence will probably be invoked.

    - Where did Heather and Claire go?


    Don't know, maybe they're on a cross-Canada trek of self-discovery? Or, being it's Marvel, they are on a cross-America trek to find out why it's the greatest country in the whole universe.

    - Why exactly is Sasquatch so stupid? Is it really from post-concussion syndrome?


    Maybe we'll get some info in the Red Hulk story since the previews show him misbehaving.

    - Where was Talisman during all of this?


    Washing her hair?

    - Did Alpha Flight get in trouble for robbing that bank? Did the people easily forgive them? Are they uneasy heroes now to the people of Canada, who not long ago hated them?


    I'm sure all is forgiven considering the team saved the country (and the world) from the Master, and the money issues will probably be settled out of court considering they could sue the government for attacking and locking them up without just cause.


    - How does Puck know Taskmaster?


    From what they said in the story, the go way back to the days when Judd was a spy.

    - After all the stuff (known and unknown) that Puck has gone through in his life, what exactly caused him to go all squirrely in hell?


    Probably because it's Hell, the place of eternal suffering and torment. I don't think anything in life prepares you for that.

    - How did Puck get out of hell?


    After Wolverine killed whatever big bad was in charge there, he left Puck in command. Since Judd was in charge I'm assuming he could choose to leave if he wanted to. He did say he gave it all up to save the team.

    - Was Heather cured of the Master’s influence, or not? Does she have four toes, or five?


    This I can tell you for certain. Straight from FVL's mouth to my twitter account: Heather is not cured, and she still has four toes.

    -
    Was Prime Minister Cody killed?


    Unless he had a secret teleportation device I think he got fried when the Master's ship took off and leveled Parliament.

    - Wasn’t Cody brain-dead earlier on in Alpha Flight?

    Yes, but he got better. I'm guessing that the Master fixed him up using his Unity procedure so he could be his pawn in this scheme.

    You are a stupid seal with a small rooster. Translate that into french and you'll get it.

    Hm. But they were brainwashed 'after' they attacked the government (and the power station, i think? really have to look that up again...), so I wonder about that one. Once AF won and saved the day, wouldn't Citadel and Purple Girl have been locked up and incarcerated with the rest of Alpha Strike? Very...confusing...

    There's some poor sewage truck owner with the unenviable task of pumping it out every month or two, then? This actually reminds me of some of the questions regarding Radius in Volume 2.

    Yes, but it is also quite clear that he died. I was going, by that, on the assumption that this is a new Citadel. Unless the old one could cure himself from death?

    Maybe. But she was brainwashed into loving her child even more than before (is that possible?), and wanting to help Unity take over Canada. Unles sit can be proven she was given a subliminal message from The Master to kill her family, I don't know how she coudl still be 'unresponsible' for their deaths. I know that if i gte behind the wheel of a motor vehicle while drunk and kill somebody with my car, I'm still reponsible. Seems like Heather could have made a lot of other choices at that critical moment.

    Oh, definitely. In a pool in a glade in the forest, underneath a waterfall. With some deer and bunnies watching.

    Funny, Wolverine didn't seem too affected by it.

    Maybe I'm too picky, but i would have liked to see one panel showing a state funeral for him, then. It's all about wrapping up loose ends, for me.

    - Who encased Citadel in that suit, and who is he?

    See Wolverine First Class #5

    -

    Just the Dept. H guards who were with her at the time.

    - Where was Talisman during all of this?

    In Omega Flight she satated she wanted nothing to do with super-heroing and wanted to concentrate on her tribe, so I guess the same applies.

    - After all the stuff (known and unknown) that Puck has gone through in his life, what exactly caused him to go all squirrely in hell?


    Aaron said in interviews it was because of Raazer, but that was never in print so not canon.

    - Was Heather cured of the Master’s influence, or not? Does she have four toes, or five?


    This I can tell you for certain. Straight from FVL's mouth to my twitter account: Heather is not cured, and she still has four toes.

    Again, this was never in print, so not canon. Future writers/handbook entries may contradict this.

    - Was Prime Minister Cody killed?

    Presumed as, but again it's comics so unless we see it, it's not canon.

    - Wasn’t Cody brain-dead earlier on in Alpha Flight?

    Freg hinted in interviews that he was brought back to health by Hercules at the end of Chaos War, along with Citadel, but again, not canon.

    So basically; lots of wriggle room

    Robbing a bank causes more problems than just money, though; trauma for the peole involved being the big one.

    If it is public knowledge that "Heather" is "Vindicator", will that put her other relatives (mother, father, siblings) in danger, not just from possible supervillians but from citizens who might not take kindly to her involvement in the takeover of the Canadian goverment?

    That's a really good point and adds strength to Heather running away at the end of Vol.4

    Yeah, I wonder what Heather's parents are up to, and why they didn't get custody of Claire? I see now that the reason for not giving them custody was not wanting Heather to kill her parents.

    Maybe they didn't want custody, being old? Or, the cousins particularly did; they wanted kids but couldn't have their own?

    I don't see why ordinary Canadians would take it out on her family; first, there aren't many people who weren't involved and second, I'm not sure the events had all that big an effect on ordinary people anyway.

    I think you are forgetting all the people forcefully rounded up and sent to internment camps. Plus, all the people who ended up with only 8 toes.

    All the people killed in the nation's capital when the Master's ship rose out of the ground. The death of the Prime Minister. Yet another round of elections.

    Actually, i doubt that there would have been ANYBODY in Canada not affected by this storyline!

    I am, a little bit, but:

    Almost all of it was confined to politicians and reporters in Ottawa.
    I think you'd be suprised how little of that might've trickled down to the ordniary people on the street in Winnipeg...

    There are NO ordinary people in Winnipeg; they have all been replaced by the black flies.
