MY WIFE'S A TREACHEROUS HARPY - The Downside Of Being Guardian, Plus A Preview Of Alpha Flight Two

You'd think when you rocked one of comics best costumes, had a sweet power and worked with a team-mate who could turn herself into a dinosaur, you'd have it made. Wrong.

Guardian, in the first issue of the new 'My God this book's brilliant' Alpha Flight mini series, was shot in the back by his wife Vindicator, who has jumped from his bed to the government's and is now set to turn Canada against her former friends (and you thought Aurora had issues)!

While James's wicked, wayward, wack-job of a wife looks certain to get her way, one bouncing bundle of hair is about to wreck her plans. How do I know? Probably the way he's smirking on the cover of next week's issue... (click to enlarge).

Writers: Fred Van Lente, Greg Pak, Art: Dale Eaglesham.

  1. I laughed my ass off when I read that tagline. I wouldn't if Mrs. D were in the room, mind you. I'm not the brightest bulb on the tree but I'm not stupid.

  2. Ha thanks for that Craig - I thought twice about running with something more straight-laced, but this mini is so good I really wanted something that would make folks take a look.

    Poor Guardian - mind you when Wolverine finds Heather's flipped allegiances, he's probably not going to be to happy about it either...

  4. Hehe no Aliera I would never use IADW to insult a real person - wife or not. It's all in reference to Heather in Alpha Flight!

    Do look around for it though - I'd be interested in hearing your thoughts if you can find it!
