    Sorry man, I couldn't resist.

    Australia, Australia, Australia, we love you. Amen.

    Ah, philosophy, Bruce; remember, you can teach Marxism as long as you make it clear it was wrong. Are there any Sheila's about?

    As long as her name's not Alice Springs...
    (No, actually, they did that.)

    Don't worry, it was years ago.

    Either it was a terrible con, or you meant you weren't able to go...

    Not sure if this is the correct thread for this, but it is the closest one I could find.

    One of the many reasons I was so disappointed that Alpha Flight vol. 4 did not continue was the info that came out concerning their plans to create a “Commonwealth of Heroes” team as part of the storyline.
    This idea has intrigued me ever since, and I’ve often wondered who would have comprised such a team.
    Well, today I got really bored and decided it was high time I put some thought into it… and here is what I came up with.

    Click image for larger version. 

Name:	The Commonwealth.jpg 
Views:	35 
Size:	288.9 KB 
ID:	4752

    Talisman - Elizabeth Twoyoungmen - Canada
    Chinook - Colin Hume - Canada (originally England)
    Lifeguard - Heather Cameron - Australia
    Union Jack - Joseph Chapman - England
    Caledonia - Alysande Stuart - Scotland
    Thunderbird - Neal Shaara - India
    Albion - Peter Hunter - England

    All characters listed have appeared in the Marvel Universe at one point or another.
    There are definitely others to choose from, I just thought this group had a very wide range of powers that would work in various situations.
    I was also going to add "Kiwi Black" from New Zealand, as his teleporting powers would prove useful... but couldn't find a decent pic to include.

    Let me know your thoughts... and also if there could be better choices
    The Flight Forever !

    Lifeguard? Never heard of her. I'm guessing she's the gold one next to Colin, who looks like she got dressed in 1996?

    And she looks like she isn't an Aboriginal with a connection to the Dreamtime, and a bullroarer, who teleports?

    She appeared in X-Men back in the early 2000's... here's the wikipedia entry.

    I was going to include him... but I thought two Talismans on the same team would be confusing.
