    Yup. What's going to make it interesting is how/if Brisson addresses the clusterfuck of the Hudson's relationship.

    I'm not disappointed because I called it after #1 came out. I'll be disappointed if their isn't a good reason for this character taking up the Nemesis mantle and sword.

    Yeah I wasn't disappointed either and was happy to see them. Another issue that I enjoyed. It's just classic superhero stuff done well and it's one of the three FoX books I'm continuing with.

    I really liked the scene with Kyle and everything he said. Things are getting tense at Krakoa North though and I hope he'll be alright.

    I kinda wish Marrina would usurp control of any remaining Plodex and Plodex technology/bases on Earth from the 'Master of the World,' and work on sort of rehabilitating her mostly mindless menace people, while also turning their remaining technology to better uses than the 'Master' did, since she, not he, is a more rightful heir to the stuff the Plodex have here on Earth.

    I mean, she used to be, for a hot minute, Queen of Atlantis! She deserves to be more than the 'angry homeless illegal alien teen.'

    No no. It was a strong issue. Maybe best X of the week. But if you have any knowledge of Alpha Flight history whatsoever, you had to see the twist coming the entire issue I think.

    I see now I was responding to an old post. Oddly, my comment is completely legit for this week’s issue and issue 1 as well.

    I don't suppose now would be a good time to mention the Box Sentinels, huh?

    Pulling up this older thread just to say how much I enjoyed the Alpha Flight series. The conclusion delivered a mix of emotions as the heroes were successful in some ways and unsuccessful in others. The appearance of two more former members at the end was great.

    Plus I liked how on the final page with the issue checklist it said, spoilers:
    "See which Alpha Flight-ers return in X-Force #47." I'm thinking we might see Fang, Aurora, and Northstar pop up there.
    end of spoilers

    *SPOILERS*

    I was a bit disappointed. The conclusion felt very rushed and I missed seeing strong character moments. Like, it was great seeing all these characters again, but I can't say their characterizations were that great. They felt like players moving along the narrative, but there was no in-depth focus on any of them.
    Even the reunion seemed strange after all those characters have been through. Brisson glossed over how Guardian had Heather incarcerated and living a fantasy life the last time he wrote them. Suddenly they're a decent couple again? I mean, I'm all for fixing that whole mess, but this was just ignoring the issue altogether.
    I also wish we had seem more of the team in Chandilar, but that one panel of Walt and Marrina looked good.
    All in all, I think it was a somewhat decent mini that at least got these characters some panel-time, even if Brisson's characterization can't help but feel lacking.

    Hopefully it's received well enough to warrant a new series. It's always tricky with such a large cast and the premise being as tight as it is. From an aerial view though I think it showed all the characters in a great light as they all wanted to help the mutants and risked arrest or worse. I've become a fan of Feedback and I enjoyed Kyle's role as he held down the fort while the others were flying around.

    Honestly I think that previous storyline involving Heather and Mac is best forgotten. It kinda ruined both characters. I enjoyed this issue and I'm sad it's over. I wish the art didn't change mid-way through the issue though. Luckily it blended in pretty well with the regular art so it wasn't too jarring. I think with the way this issue ends that another mini or new ongoing must be in the works. Here's hoping. Oh yeah. I was super thrilled by the 2 surprise AF members that showed up at the end.

    I haven't gotten hold of the last issue yet, but I definitely agree we need to just forget that entire episode of Mac and Heather's story. That wasn't anything like his character at all and just damaged him greatly. Yes, they can be divorced and have interpersonal problems, but we dont need complete character assassination to build drama between them. I think I rather liked Heather being Nemesis, it gives a unique disposition between her and Mac rather than them being heroic copies ala Guardian and Vindicator. I do wish however, that instead of using Heather/Nemesis for teleportation they would have brought in Goblyn and her sister Laura, however that would have probably bloated the cast a bit much.
    I do hope this series served well enough that we could get another mini series at the least picking up the team after Fall of X and their relationship with the government and each other. (There was not nearly enough Snowbird transformations in this series....I need more!)

    Yes, I also hope it leads to a continuation. I honestly feel like they needed at least one more issue to properly close the story, as the Chandilar portion was VERY rushed.
    I do agree that the book showed everyone in a good light, I kind of just wished for meatier character moments than what we got.
    PS: I noticed they had Heather in the same building as Guardian's group, so it definitely feels like a set-up for their reunion.

    I do think that whole storyline is terrible, but it's weird that Brisson, the guy who contributed to making it so terrible, is the one who ignored it altogether.
    It was such a bad direction for them that I really wanted on-panel confirmation that it was all a nightmare or mind control, LOL.

    By the way, does anybody know what exactly happened to Walt? I honestly thought he had died in Immortal Hulk, but it's been a while since I read it and I didn't really finish that run.
