The magnificos review Marvel Comics latest Canadian super-team relaunch… that’s right Alpha Flight! Squirrel, Juan, and Grady reveal how it fared against the bazillion relaunches that came before. The gang also shares their list of best and worst B-teams. Find out whether yours made the cut.



  1. Alpha Flight was in the Asgardian Wars event along with X-Men. I would consider Alpha Flight an A Team. just on Byrne’s run of the book. Defenders, Heroes for Hire, Young Avengers, Runaways, and Slingers are B teams. my favorite B team is the Metal Men from DC Comics

  2. Hey Guys, I agree that most people believe that Alpha Flight is an “A-Team”, but I think the writing for them has portrayed them, or made them seem like a B-Team. It’s almost like they are either an X-Men or Avengers Light. I thinkwhen they re-launched Vol. III, where it was like a “comedy” series, that probably turned a lot of people off. They need to have a strong storyline where they are made to be one of the real grate A-Teams.

  3. I think one of the best B-Teams out there, were the Original New Warriors (Night Thrasher, Nova, Namorita, Speedball, Firestar, Justice and Silohuette). They were so captivating at first, and when they reached issue 25, it was kinda downhill from there. And I wrote this just as you guys were speaking about them!
