If there’s one thing I love about comics, it’s reading about obscure characters. The same goes for obscure teams, and if there were ever a group of unsung heroes, Alpha Flight is at the top of the list. Canada’s premier squad have been around for a long time, but it feels like they’ve never been used to their full potential. Although the team originally started out as a way of adding more value to Wolverine’s backstory, Alpha Flight developed into a team with superheroes that are worth talking about. Made up of originally of Sasquatch, Northstar, Aurora, Snowbird, Shaman and Guardian, the group deserves more recognition. I’ll be looking into the history of the members to see what makes Alpha Flight worth reading about.
