Walt is shown only in Sasquatch form, which indicates the Beasts' subtle influence. Walt's soul is divided between Aurora, Northstar, and Talisman, so it is unlikely that he has complete control over Tanaraq. Moreover, Walt takes high risk/high reward chances. That has been established from the very beginning.
Puck not being an integral part of this story mirrors AF vol. 1 #1, the connections between the characters are conveyed in a way not seen in years, and Alpha Flight is in a seemingly no-win situation, fighting the Chaos Kings' minions surrounded by cannibalistic Wendigoes in thrall to the Great Beasts who are manifesting to their fullest power on Earth.
This is a true Alpha Flight story.
: I really liked it...There were a few
: in the plot and art, but for the most
: part...it was quite enjoyable.
: Truth be told, I was not impressed. Don't
: me wrong, it was GREAT to see the classic
: Flight again but the story and art really
: didn't jump out at me as awesome.
: Yeah. Agreed. It was those oddities in the
: plot and art that made the circumstances of
: returning them, thusly, forced and
: unsatisfying with...
: Chaos War Alpha Flight #1
: Guess Walt doesnt worry about recycling as a
: short term solution to a long term problem -
: evidenced by his pulling a Peter Parker and
: dealing with the devil.
: Guess Liz isnt as good as her father, too,
: to not have been any mystic help to her dead
: teammates in the waiting room to the
: afterlife - or even know about it[?!].
: Guess Editorial vetoed Puck's return and
: sent him to Hell with Logan but the Twin's
: are allowed to return, even though all the
: other heroes remain in deadsleep, for
: very... 'good' reason - Bullpen Marketing
: Guess throwing in the Wendigos is as obvious
: an story element choice to add to a Canadian
: hero story as making sure there is snow
: involved too.
: Guess this ish brings a banner submission:
: More praiseworthy recaps with details:
: But was did they sway my overall
