X is for Podcast #106 – ’80s Mutant Mania: The Over-Powered Alpha Flight (Not That We’re Complaining) in Incredible Hulk, Machine Man, and Marvel Two-In-One Starring The Thing! (feat. The History Of Alpha Flight!)
Alpha Flight (sorta) first appeared way back in X-Men #109 and would go on to appear throughout the Marvel Universe over the years, a testament to the success of the era of X-Men that gave rise to them and their stellar character designs. But even the creators agree these early stories not only lacked the depth of storytelling the later years of the characters would come to be defined by, but also the characters themselves are “hollow.” Join Alpha Team Nico, Jonah, and Mikey as they explore the hard, pre-series years of Alpha before next episode’s debut of the ongoing title! Read along with Incredible Hulk Annual #8, Machine Man #18, Marvel 2-In-1 #83-84.
