@spector_rand: I do not believe he is referring to the actual Alpha Flight team given the quotes.

I think the reference is to the "Alpha Flight" space station/organization that appear in the "I dosen't remember the title" n. 0 of Avengers book some week ago, where they present the Avengers, Uncanny Avengers, Ultimates, A-Force, New Avengers and Squadrone Supreme

I think, from what I've readed in this book, that the "Alpha Flight" will be in someway tied with the A-Force book :)

Me too, I've always been a big fan of his artwork. I've already got stuff he has done for DC and Top Cow (Red Hood and The Outlaws and Hunter/Killer respectively) now this will be something of his from Marvel I can get.

This was all over the news a month and a half ago, surprised you didn't see it... and when I say "all over," I mean: Washington Post, New York Times, CNN, The Guardian, Huffington Post... this was big news.

So can't wait for this. Looks like a good book, and a great team. I can't wait for the inevitable Guardians crossover! Also really like tha Marvel is really pushing the Adam, the Blue Marvel and Monica Rambeau. Also glad we get both her and Carol Danvers together. The last time they got together was fun.

Dialogue reminds me of Warren Ellis' writing.

Also, there's a Triskelion in the 616 universe now?

I love that we're starting to see just how marvel indicated that seeds from the Secret Wars series would end up in the re-visioned marvel universe. Like Weirdworld being an area, maybe like the Savage Land and now we have the Triskelion. Brilliant! This book makes sense to me. Pull list for sure.

So we got a team of incredibly powerful characters...and black panther. He seems like an odd choice.

@spector_rand: Capt. Marvel is the leader of the new Alpha Flight. According to an article I saw here and IGN.

His take on Superman is one of the best for me. He really makes me dive to anything he draw (This includes Teen Titans).. Now.. I'm gonna read this one now.

Looks really interesting, but fuck whoever forced the inclusion of ISO-8. That's a nasty piece of microtransaction crap that honestly makes me want to heave whenever I see it written down. Making it an official part of the Marvel universe might be the most annoying way to connect their different properties. You know, since that horrible S.H.I.E.L.D. 50th anniversary with Daisy. That ham-fisted retcon with the grace of a jackhammer...

One of the most promising ANAD concepts, this, SS and UXM are all an absolute must try for me. Two things about the title: having them called Ultimates and not having at least one Ultimate character doesn't sit well with me, not just as a fan of Millar's original run, but generally speaking. It could be nice having Ultimate Thor added to this roster, or I dunno, Jean Grey? Though they're pushing the annoying Bendis' pet as one and the only version apparently, so it may be too much of a wishful thinking. Another point I hope they don't job Galactus to make this team look good.

I find it strange that the Wakandan embassy is lumped together with two groups that protect the earth from cosmic threats, is that just an excuse to get Black Panther on the team?

@spector_rand said:

Wow this looks cool.

And Alpha FLight???

Not the Canadian super team, unfortunately, in this context Alpha Flight most likely refers the new group lead by Captain Marvel that seems to be taking over the role SWORD used to fill in the ANADMU.

Way to go Marvel !!!!! This is what i been saying for the longest. Make a comic with your already established "diverse" characters and not screw with the regulars.

Now look at all the positive comments here. Theu finally got it right.

Carol Danvers Earth's mightiest hero? What a joke. By the way, the Authority called, they want their schtick back.
