I have no intention of buying the MCP "Guardian/Weapon Omega" story...I seriously just don't give a flying fig about him and I am far less of a completionist than I had been. I really don't want the character (or U.S.Agent) near my Alpha/Omega Flight or Canada...And I'm not even Canadian. He doesn't belong in that suit, he doesn't belong defending Canada...If anything, Michael Pointer should be returned to America, put in some other power-controlling suit (without a Canadian flag, thank you) and put on one of the many 50-state Initiative teams. Best. Dana --Previous Message--
: Marvel no longer has Tony Bedard, Justin Gray,
: and Palmiotti, writers whose stories I find
: interesting, and now Marvel has lost Scott
: Kolins, whose appreciation for AF is
: apparent in the OF mini-series. Instead,
: they've got Jeff Loeb.
: More importantly, despite being knee-capped
: by TPTB, Omeing and Kolins still got every
: issue of this mini-series out when it was
: scheduled to come out. Super-professional.
: 'Nuff said.
: If Marvel had just made the decision to do a
: mini-series right from the start, maybe
: things would've been better, but we'll never
: know, now.
: As far as Pointer being in MCP, even if
: disgruntled fans (like myself) boycott
: buying it, the stories will still be
: published---they will exist---and someone
: will always and continuously refer to them
: as part of AF/OF history. A no-win
: Unfortunately, Marvel is doing their
: characters (old and new) such dishonor and
: disservice without really trying to develop
: the same kind of loyalty for their featured
: characters like Pointer that most older fans
: feel for the original AF that TPTB may
: succeed in making the remaining AF fans not
: care for characters that have rarely
: received a fair break.

: Marvel keep firing writers and
: will lose their customers and readers in the
: future. Marvel sells will deflate on the
: charts too. Right now,I'm leaning over to DC
: comics more than Marvel comics,guys. DC
: comics has several new titles being release
: for November and I can hardly wait.

: I have nothing against Kolins. His art was
: fine but has been better, but Marvel forced
: him to use the "shaded" style he
: used in Omega Flight. That was one of the
: reasons he quit, besides being lied to about
: Omega Flight's ongoing.
: If they do get brain implants at Marvel
: Editorial and we get an Alpha Flight or
: Omega Flight ongoing in 2008, great.
: Although Oeming and Kolins have sort of been
: told to "p*ss off", especially in
: regards to Alpha Flight, Kolins for one may
: be back someday.
: I am hoping for an ongoing Flight series but
: trust Brevoort/Quesada, the big dogs, as
: much as the Gypseys trusted the Nazis.
: I mean, they push She-Hulk (about an
: off-kilter nymphomaniac powerhouse) and
: Ant-Man (about a stupid, misogynist,
: low-life thief/liar who steals a power suit
: and remains a misogynist, stupid, low-life
: thief/liar) and wonder why both series
: struggle to find a readership (at least
: Buckley, the publisher, pulled the plug on
: them with Ant-Man, finally!).
: If there will be an ongoing, we may have to
: wait until those two are fired/quit.
