In Alpha Flight #0.1:

we see Shaman doing quite the multi-tasking with his seeming astral projection 2.0 to possibly embarrass Dr. Strange's skillset:

We see Persuasion lose... her name and go all 'Purple Man' as a more skilled Purple WOman of course:

but we also meet Citadel, some guy with a malleable exo-skeleton grafted on, who embarrasses/pawns Vindicator and Sasquatch:

and Fear Itself seems to have action battles acoming to scrutinize more cool Canadian combatants!




I miss Dan.

The art is both good and bad. For me it's too reminiscent of The Ultimates which I don't think fits the regular MU. Also there are some anatomy, proportions and perspective issues with the art. It's still nice on some levels, though.

As far the book goes, I would have liked to see Vindator ditch those terrible goggles and maybe go for a bold and cool anime-inspired helmet along the lines of Battle of the Planets or like that pilot dude from 80s tv show Starfleet.
