Dark Reign: Made Men #1
Originally released as a digital comic, the 2nd story (of 5) features Attuma, Alpha Flight’s evil enemy from way back. While contemplating joining forces with Doctor Doom, Attuma recalls his past failed battles with Namor, including the epic underwater battle shown in the story arc from Alpha Flight #35-39, continuing in Avengers #272 and concluding in Alpha Flight #40. Included in a montage, a portion of one panel shows an erroneous memory of being simultaneously attacked by Namor, Marrina, Shaman, Sasquatch and Puck. Of course, at the time, Sasquatch was dead (Snowbird could have taken his form, but she’d be white, not Tanaraq-orange), and Michael Twoyoungmen was wearing a black/white fur costume, becoming the Talisman in Alpha Flight #38, before the underwater battle. Also, Marrina did try to directly attack Attuma but was shot down before she could get as close as pictured:
It’s a bit disappointing to see the mistaken portrayals of the characters, especially from Frank Tieri and Rafa Sandoval, creators who have previously been very good to us, but it all can be attributed to Attuma’s faded memory, so all is good. For this issue, just the one panel cameo and very nice to see Marrina poised to land a straight right on Attuma’s kisser.
