sneaky sneaksters

Ya gotta love the internet age. Alpha Flight issue 1 isn’t even out yet (heck, 0.1 ain’t even out yet!), and we already get to see the cover to issue #2, by Phil Jiminez.

Plus, we get to see this Dale Eaglesham variant cover!

Sneaky sneaky sneaky!

Fred Van Lente has been telling us that Puck isn’t likely to appear because he is already being used somewhere else; yet, who is that Canadian dwarf who appears on the variant cover?

FVL has also recently said that Madison Jeffries will not be appearing in Alpha Flight…but that Box might be.

Hmmm…judging by the fact that they are lying about Puck not being in the series…does anybody really know if this statement is truth or just another smokescreen?

Can’t wait, can’t wait, can’t wait!

Hey! Maybe they are bringing back Scramble the Mixed Up Man from the dead, and separating him from Roger Bochs, thereby returning the original Bochs to the Box armour!

Oh man, that’d be sweet…

Next question: Who has the type of power displayed on the regular cover of AF # 2, to be doing that to our Canadian heroes? It is a pretty big explosion, with a hot and bright core; could this be a certain Japanese hero who hung around Department H in AF Volume 2?

(Almost) last thought for now. Puck was last seen in hell. What exactly would he do, to get out of there? Would he, agree to work for the government AGAINST his teammmates, perhaps? Or... ...there is this quote, from the official solicitation: "But as FEAR ITSELF takes over, their own country turns on the Flight and brands them traitors for the shocking actions of one of their closest allies. As the borders close and an entire nation hunts them down, will the newly reunited Alpha Flight survive?" Seems like maybe Puck comes back, doesn't like what is going on, and does something against the government, causing said government to turn on the Flight!

FVL's reveal

Fred van Lente has revealed that the new Canadian PM who gets elected is none other than Gary Cody, former Alpha liaison.
Gary Cody was declared brain-dead after messing with a very bad baddy (Bedlam) in AF Vol 1.

FVL says that he is back from the dead, due to what Hercules did in Chaos War. Something in the way he said that, makes me think more than just Cody are back from the dead to haunt Alpha Flight. And, since we know that the government forms a super-team to track down Alpha Flight, here are a few names I now think may be on it...

Deadly Ernest
Wild Child
Smart Alec
Ms. Mass
