Where are they now, Part III

It’s been a while since the last post and a bunch has happened. So, what’s going on in the world of Alpha Flight? In summary, quite a lot!

  • Northstar’s been a regular in the ongoing Amazing X-Men title, prompting a recent team appearance in the World War Wendigo arc
  • A member of the new Omega Flight, the mysterious Validator, has joined the Avengers
  • Windshear has returned as Chinook in the Logan Legacy miniseries
  • No one has died in a long time

Going character by character, the list below should cover everything. Same color codes as last time: for a few members who are actively appearing in an ongoing series, or have been popping up in the past year or so, names are noted in bold text. Green means they are alive and kicking, yellow means they are alive, but we haven’t seen them for a long time, blue means they are alive but depowered and gray means they are dead. The rest is self-explanatory.

Original Team

    I like that you’re still adamant Radius is alive 😉

    • rplass Says:

      Well, yeah. Until there’s something saying he’s not alive, I’m working with what we know: he’s got a force field that protected him from falling into the crevasse – later his mutant energy was detected in New Avengers #18, so he’s depowered but alive.

  2. Phil Says:

    My take was that even though Avalanche buried him alive, his forcefield would have kept him alive so he’d essentially be just stuck there forever.
    I know we saw him needing a mask-device to eat but did he *need* food?
    If not he would have just been there until his powers were turned off and then he’d be suffocated.
    Like you say though – until it’s on the printed page…

  3. Phil Says:

    Also with regards to the Sasquatch entry – S.H.I.E.L.D. is 616 MU not MCU.

    • rplass Says:

      Ok. After all the money Marvel made me spend on the variants, I ought to get it exactly right! Thanks for the correction.

  4. DMK Says:

    Nice list. I’ll have to bookmark this site.

  5. Scott Brownlee Says:

    It was so great to see Alpha Flight in the latest Amazing X-Men arc! Got me all nostalgic for them again, and I think it was quite well done.

    • rplass Says:

      Hey Scott, yeah it was well done. Your nostalgic feelings are probably due to the fact that everyone from the original team were used – wasn’t it great to see them together again? Thanks for your comment!

  6. Derek Robinson Says:

    I may be wrong, but I recall a storyline where either Silver or Auric died off panel?

  7. Phil Says:

    We need a ‘Where Is Rob Now?’ post 😦
