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.

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.

Goblyn Alive Alpha Flight #130
Goblyn was recently seen in a non-continuity appearance in Deadpool #34 in a 90s Alpha Flight version.

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.

Where are they now?

September 26, 2009

First things first. Let’s get 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, this page will become quickly out of date.  Those members 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.
