Where are they now, Part III

January 1, 2015

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

Member Status Last seen
Guardian (Mac) Alive Amazing X-Men #12
Guardian basically saved all of Canada in the exciting conclusion to the World War Wendigo arc, bursting out of Tanaraq’s chest! He was last seen recuperating, with Heather at his side.

Aurora Alive Amazing X-Men #12
Aurora had a strong showing in World War Wendigo, appearing with Northstar. She did have one subsequent non-continuity appearance in Northstar’s vision in Amazing X-Men #13.

Northstar Alive Amazing X-Men #13
Northstar has been the most active Alphan of late and appears regularly as a member of the Amazing X-Men team. He’s still married to Kyle.

Sasquatch Alive Amazing X-Men #12
Sasquatch is smart again and fought with Colossus and Firestar in the World War Wendigo arc. His most recent non-continuity appearance is in S.H.I.E.L.D. #1 in flashback.

Shaman Alive Amazing X-Men #10
Shaman’s most recent appearance was in the World War Wendigo arc, along with Marrina. He discovered the origin of the Wendigo outbreak.

Marrina Alive Amazing X-Men #10
Marrina’s role in the World War Wendigo arc was an appearance with Shaman, who discovered the origin of the Wendigo outbreak. She also had an updated entry in the recent Avengers NOW! handbook.

Puck (Eugene) Alive Amazing X-Men #11
Puck and Talisman are now a thing. He was last seen by her side as she recuperated from a brutal attack by Wolverine Wendigo.

Talisman Alive Amazing X-Men #11
Talisman was brutally attacked by Wolverine Wendigo and was last seen recuperating, hooked up to all tubes in a hospital, with Puck by her side.

Vindicator (Heather) Alive Amazing X-Men #12
Heather seems to have shaken off the effects of The Master’s brainwashing, likely has all ten toes and is back by Mac’s side where she belongs.

Wild Child Alive Wolverine #304
Wild Child mysteriously re-appeared in this issue, without explanation. Not sure what’s up with that but the Official Index says he’s alive.

Madison Jeffries Alive X-Treme X-Men #1
Jeffries appeared as a regular member of the X-Club science team in this fun issue. He also appeared in a non-continuity scene in AVX: VS #6, battling the Avengers scientists.

Purple Woman Alive Cable & X-Force #9
Kara was imprisoned following the events of Alpha Flight v4 and was visted by Hope, who absorbed her mutant power of persuasion. See what I did there?

Chinook Depowered Death of Wolverine: The Logan Legacy #2
Windshear took on a new name and new costume as Chinook, appearing with X-23. Unfortunately, he’s dying from leukemia.

Where are they now, Part II

March 21, 2012

OK, haven’t done this for a while but a little bird asked me to do this, so here it is. This is the current situation with all Alphans out there. 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.

alphaflight.net is back!!!

March 15, 2012

Well, this is definitely the best Ides of March ever! Much thanks to Ben at alphaflight.net for getting things fixed up!

Second printing variant added to Uncanny X-Force #11

March 1, 2012

It’s always nice when an Alphan appears on the cover of a comic book, especially when they didn’t appear on the regular cover, then pop up later on a second printing variant cover. Wild Child’s arm, shoulder and leg appear on the second printing variant for Uncanny X-Force #11 so go check it out!

Necrosha Page added

February 24, 2012

Alpha Flight members didn’t play a big role in the Necrosha crossover, but it sure was a doozy. A new page can be found indexing the crossover by clicking on the logo above or on the sidebar link to the right. Hopefully I can add in a few more of these pages so as to organize the mass of individual issues a bit.

No, really, we mean it this time…

December 27, 2011

Today I bring word of an update on the status of alphaflight.net, which has been knocked out by hackers for an extended time. The official word is :

Should be back online soon.

So, this is great news! Alpha Flight Collector will be back soon too, with some posts featuring Alpha Flight appearances from the 2nd half of 2011.

alphaflight.net almost ready to return

November 8, 2011

The amazing alphaflight.net site has been hacked out of existence, but is almost ready to return.  For over a week now, visitors have been seeing malware warnings but tonight there’s word that the malicious content has been purged.  A full update of the software to prevent it from happening again is in process, but the site won’t be up until a full backup of all files and databases is complete.

EDIT 11/17/11: For those of you who aren’t already following the official twitter feed, @AlphaFlight_net says :

Thanks for your patience while we fix and upgrade the site. We’re trying our hardest to make sure we’re back better than before soon.

In the meantime to discuss all things #AlphaFlight why not visit @daleeaglesham‘s AF messageboard at http://www.daleeaglesham.com/Denizens/index.php?board=4.0

Issue 6 is in stores next week, so previews should be available soon. I’ll try and retweet some links as soon as they’re available.

When we return, we’ll have a brand new interview from Si Spurrier discussing his new X-Club mini featuring Madison Jeffries.

 

alphaflight.net interview with Dale Eaglesham!

June 1, 2011

Alpha Flight fan Phil snagged an interview with new Alpha Flight series artist Dale Eaglesham! He’s the guy on the left in the above image. Head on over to the amazing alphaflight.net to read it! Congratulations to Phil on the interview, and as a bonus, you get some new exclusive preview artwork never seen before!

Age of X second printing variants added

May 24, 2011

Sales of the Age of X must have been better than expected – the Alpha issue and the first four chapters have gone back for a second printing! Likely chapters 5 and 6 will be reprinted but no mention has been made so far.  Click on the links to see the covers, which have been added to the posts below. I put them at the very end of the posts but you’ll enjoy re-reading all three to get to the bottom!
