Q:Any chance you'd be willing to share the broad strokes of your Alpha Flight concept with an intensely curious audience? Even just the bits you've described so far make me thing it would have been a far different creature than any version we've seen so far.
Basic concept was a Post Dark Reign UN-Superteam to balance the US-centric Avengers.
It had one or two Alpha Flight characters in, but was really the sort of completely new thing that would have clearly have gone down badly with AF fans. Also, no-one would have bought into it as they’d know I wasn’t a big enough creator to mean it was a “real” thing. Admittedly, that was kinda the story - that this Alpha Flight was going to try and fail, and then become something else.
(There was another more faithful AF pitch I did which is one of the most demented things I’ve ever sent an editor. I half believe he left the company rather than respond to it. Some of the ideas in it found a home in Young Avengers - specifically the fighting problems no-one else can see aspect. It had a villain group in it that was basically God Speed You Black Emperor in a psychic squat in the middle of the Canadian Dream.)
Some people won’t ever get their crushes attention because they think they’re “out of their league.”
