Alpha Flight: First Class
Marvel's asked some of their writers, artists, and editors to name the comic book deaths that have most affected them over the years. Proving once again how awesome he is, Fred Van Lente chose Guardian from Alpha Flight (presumably referring to the first time from Alpha Flight #12; not the time in the picture above).
That would have to be mine too, but this isn't about me. It's about Fred's being awesome. Over at the Alpha Flight message board, someone's got the right idea: Fred should totally write an Alpha Flight: First Class comic. Enough trying to create a new team of Alphans that people will dig. Why not go back to basics and tell more stories with Guardian, Shaman, Snowbird, Sasquatch, Northstar, Aurora, Puck, and Marrina?
Marvel's Ben Morse likes the idea too and - in most likely an unrelated statement - says that we'll probably have new Alpha Flight news around mid-2009.
