    Default An Alphan in Fearless Defenders?

    http://www.comicbookresources.com/?p...ticle&id=42370

    I'll try to at least give some hints: Since this is a Defenders book, there definitely needs to be a magic-based character, a hulk-like character, a cosmic-class character. I've probably said enough with that!
    Talisman or Snowbird maybe?

    I'm guessing that the "hulk-like character" will be Sharon Ventura.

    Nowadays, describing someone as a "Hulk-like" character doesn't really narrow it down very much.
    Just exactly how many "Hulks" are there at the moment... I've actually lost count.

    How are we getting Alphans out of that?

    I have my doubts they will use a member of Alpha Flight, then again I didn't expect Jeffries to join the X-Men and Puck with X-Force.

    Cullen's said that the title will involve most female characters in the MU in some capacity at some point.

    That's a bit of a stretch...

    ... but combined with this, not as much.

    Most female characters? Will we see Pink Pearl again? I realise she's mostly 'armless now...

    I'd like to see Heather in this title since she's taken off from AF. With where she's at in her life I think she'd be a perfect fit for this team.

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

    Ah, Talisman! There are so many Alpha Flight characters I just love (because that was a book I loved so much). Talisman, Snowbird, Marrina... sheesh! Sounds like I need a Canadian branch of the FEARLESS DEFENDERS!

    I'm sure she will appear at some point. I'm not joking. If you have a favorite lady of Marvel, she WILL be featured in the book at some point if I have half a chance. But she will not be the magic user of the group (at least not initially). That role is already claimed.

    This book is getting a LOT of buzz!

    Too bad about Cullen not being an Aurora fan, though.

    I found this to be interesting...

    Here's some "behind the scenes" stuff that's sort of applicable. In one of the early pitches, I broke the team down into different aspects. Each aspect had 2 or 3 possible characters associated with it. Here are the aspects, but I stripped the character names out as they may or may not apply to the team any longer!

    • Leader – VALKYRIE
    • Warrior – (I had 2 possibilities)
    • Counselor – (I had 2 possibilities)
    • Protector – (I had 2 possibilities)
    • Huntress – (I had several possibilities listed here)
    • Queen – (I had 3 possibilities)
    • Healer - (I had one listed)
    • Muse – (I had 3 possibilities listed)
    Can anybody think of how a female Alpha Flight related character might fit into any of these categories?
