    Okay... so...

    As an X-Men arc, this issue's a great storyline; very well done and builds on the previous issue.

    As for the main reason I'm reading it... well, I'm disliking it even more than the last issue

    That last page was designed to shock. It's what comics do, they leave you with a shocking cliffhanger, then get you to express emotion; they fool you into thinking something has happened, only to undo it or explain it away in the following issue(s).

    So, we should all probably take a deep breath, and expect that we need to keep reading before we assume that what has happened, has actually happened.

    Now, that said, Marvel is 'reportedly' killing off Wolverine (don't worry, if it happens it won't be for very long). Seems to me, this story line is a set-up for that happenstance...

    ...which leads me to believe that, yes, it is entirely possible that what we saw on the page, really happened, and will quite possibly Stay Happened. After all, an Alphan can't be The Hero in an X-Men story (can't = won't), so this is me implying that the only one who can stop this mess, stop the Wendigo curse from running more amok, is Wolverine. And the effort to stop it, will kill him.

    Again, we will know more in upcoming issues. But I have a bad feeling about this, as far as the fate of our Alphan beauty goes.


    Other than that major complaint, it was a wonderful issue.

    FP, you're wrong. They are really bad writers. They killed Talisman for the lulz. It's what they do. So stupid. What a waste. They do it to get a reaction out of us because they don't have the ability to get a positive reaction by writing well. Craig Kyle and Chris Yost are the worst possible writers in the universe with the exception of one person who is even worse but all three are equally infinitely horrible writers. I hate them completely.

    I got a pretty generic spoiler the night before last from someone. I asked for the spoiler.
    I haven't read AXM yet, and I will reserve my fit for when I have actually read it.
    But if what I was told is what happens, I'm going to ask them how many more of my Alphans will be slaughtered by the end of their Wendigo arc.
    Because this is BS.

    OMG!!! I don't agree with the rest of you, the writing I think is great!! Agreed, the ending with Elizabeth getting stabbed by a recently turned Logan, done to shock us. And for that, it was well drawn! I miss Ed's art, but the new art is still top notch! Best wait to see where this goes, before bashing the overall story. It has Alpha Flight, so we ALL should be happy to see them.

    Oh I agree, the issue was a really good one and it's possibly the best X-title at the moment IMO.
    It's just a shame that we feared going in that we'd lose at least one Alphan by the end of the arc and that looks to be the case.

    I'm extremely happy to see them... I just don't enjoy seeing any of them get butchered. It seems like Marvel just brings them back so they can kill them off again.

    I do agree though that the writing and the artwork are very good. I'm just hoping that Alpha Flight is still in one piece by the end of the arc.

    True, never easy seeing our favorite characters die or butchered. But, it's Marvel...I'm sure they got something up their sleeves. As hard as it is, we've all gotta wait until the more of the story to see where the ultimate end is.
