    Of course, the big issue now is that much of the original team is quite dead. If there were to be a new book, you'd have Sasquatch, Northstar, Aurora, Talisman and Madison Jeffries. I just don't see fans buying this Collective guy as the new Guardian. Would you bring some characters back from the dead (like Puck)?

    It becomes a question of who you'd have on the team, and how you'd approach it.

I dont advocate resurrecting those characters killed by the Collective and remember that other members such as Diamond Lil and Wildchild have also since died whilst others were depowered during M-day which really doesnt leave you many to chose from as far as ex Alphas are concerned.

Omega Flight of course had a predominantly American roster which irked alot of people although I recall one quote from the series that I consider significant - the fact that Alpha Flight was never about being Canadian but about doing your best for Canada. With that in mind could a non-Canadian roster work? Would people still buy it, or is a team based in Canada just something Americans would show little interest in?

Are people going to line up to buy a roster containing Sasquach, Northstar, Aurora, Maddison Jeffries and Talisman?
