    Read it if you want. Here's the gist: Beta Ray Bill. Oh, and a few tweaks around the original Alpha Flight team. You know, cause Bendis murdered them off panel in New Avengers. Anyways, Oeming is bringing the Flight back as a new team for the Canadans. The only 2 confirmed members are Vindicator and Beta Ray Bill. Oeming just likes Beta Ray Bill because he kicks Thor's ass. Basically, the series is named "Omega" Flight because this is the last chance for the Flight. Oh, and a teaser image, since 80% of you won't click the link:

    I think Arachne (sp) is one. The former SPider woman that was being chased by Ms. Marvel and Wondy in the Civil Wars tie in.
    US Agent and Talisman is possibly the other two...

    Who is Arachne? That's not Julia Carpenter...is it? I don't know of all the Spider-Women. But that US Agent is pretty prominent too...but for a Canadian team!?

    It is USAgent, he was part of the Invaders. Sort of an extreme Captain America.

    I put up all of Alpha Flight on otcomixcrew

    if that's not beta ray bill and if they stick the half rate cloned thor on this team...i'm not buying it unless he's killed in the first 3 books.

    They confirmed Vindicator and Beta Ray Bill. Beta Ray Bill is a Korbinite android of sorts; he has a soul, but he's not completely flesh and blood. Alpha Ray was the first android the Korbinites created to defend their race, but he was uncontrollable. They made Beta Ray with a conscience, which makes him noble enough to be Thor's blood brother. Thor requested that a hammer be made for Beta Ray Bill equivalent to Mjolnir; Beta Ray Bill, for a time, believed he should be the rightful wielder of the hammer. Beta Ray Bill survived Ragnarok because it was "not his fight" and Thor teleported him out of the thickest of the battle, just after seeing Sif die. After events in his latest miniseries, "Stormbreaker: The Saga of Beta Ray Bill," he ended up tethered to a human host who can transform into Beta Ray Bill at the strike of his fist.

    Who the hell were Alpha Flight anyway? :rofl: I'm just interested because of Beta Ray Bill and at least 2 hot chicks. But not together. Beer and sex don't mix.

    Canadian super team.
    the dynamic was like the avengers mixed with the x-men.

    Would make sense that Julie Carpenter would be in canada, since you see her trying to get away in the last miss. marvel

    this is actually looking like a great title...

    seriously...oeming is fantastic. not only does he do the art for awesome titles like Powers and cross bronx, but he also is responisble for almost all of beta ray bill's story and he's behind the reason thor plucked out his eyes and went away to begin with.

    that and i'm canadian....now i'm really looking forward to this :bigok:

    The Civil War will end up migrating over the Canadian border to track down the defectors and cause a full scale war with the Canadians, resulting in the annexing of Canada into the United States. Omega Flight is the resistance cell to fight for Canadian freedom.
