Aside from Wolverine and Deadpool has Canada got any cool superheroes going for them?
Alpha Flight! The parts of it that are still Canadian, anyway.
I don't mind exiling Sasquatch and Puck to space, they were always lame. Aurora can be cool but she's been stuck in the same shitty split personality bs storyline for ages.
At least Snowbird, Talisman, Guardian, and Marina should all still be in Canada
I'm just happy they're being used in a good series as more than just heroes to kill off to show a threat is serious.
Not yet, but after her beard gets killed in CW2 she'll probably hook up with a woman.
I live in PEI and our government gave a bunch of money away as a loan to try and set us up at the e-gaming center of the east coast and then a couple weeks later backed out and said "oh they don't have to pay back the federal loan because we agreed they'd pay us back with the profits. The taxpayers do not have a single clue where that money was spent.
If the rest of the country's provincial governments are like ours, pretty fucking evil.
This comic was kinda shit and I ended up dropping it, but the canadian parts were actually pretty fun
> The isolated James Bay communities of Moose Factory and Moosonee take the spotlight in the forthcoming Justice League Canada, a five-issue story arc written by comic artist Jeff Lemire for the comic series Justice League United. The stories, featuring artwork by Mike McKone, debut in April.
> The comic is pretty much "Alpha Flight also starring Carol Danvers because otherwise no one would bother buying it, just like very other Alpha Flight comic ever made".
Fixed that for you. You're welcome.
Harper wasn't shit to other countries, his foreign affairs policy was pretty much "kiss america's ass, get right up there and swirl Canada's tounge around."
Are we counting cartoons made by Canadians?
Fuck you. Canada's flag is a benchmark of modern visual design. It's both simple and distinctive, which means you can do anything with it. You can turn it around, chop it up, alter the colours and even replace some of the elements and it'll still be recognizable.
You turn half of Europe's flags upside-down and they'll look like the flags of their bitterest enemies. America, China and Saudi Arabia's flags are distinctive enough to be recognized at a glance, but their elements are so generic that if you rearranged them into anything else they'd be unrecognizable. Fuck your flags, Canada the best.
Not superheroes, really, but has anyone else read "We Stand on Guard"?
100 years in the future, Canadian Resistance fight occupying American forces with giant mechs.
Not being indicative of the majority of Canada is the most Canadian thing about it!
>Own all three volumes of Alpha Flight, Omega Flight, and that maxi series and a bunch of other appearances.
That maxi series was surprisingly good, damn shame it didn't get an ongoing.
>sniper with no super powers
>covering Capatin Canuck from a distance
>in a flashy uniform that offers no camouflague whatsoever and causes her to stick out like a sore thumb
Tundra has some kind of fascination with outhouses.
And how about heartwarming Canadian comics about the little things in family life.
>I'm just happy they're being used in a good series as more than just heroes to kill off to show a threat is serious
What, has this happened three times at least?
That shit after Civil War, that shit with the aliens, and probably something else.
>Lying about the actual content
You mean to say it's about a Canadian resistance in one of Canada's middle-bum-fuck provinces fighting against the Americans who annexed Canada using giant mechs. The Canadians have dick all and steal American tech to fight back, but can hardly operate any of their shit. Americans want "muh crystal clean lake water" because they ruined their ecosystem.
Now it's up to:
>National hero red-head who is an Ottawa survivor
>Strong female resistance leader
>Gay turbo bear and his wolf dog
>Quebecois previously famous comedian who will inspire Canadians
>The native guy
>The Girl whose race is ambiguous until issue 4 where it turns out she descended from Syrian refugees
>White straight guy who dies in the first issue explaining how Superman is Canadian
to save the day and free Canada.
Honestly, I had my hopes for it. But then it went full soapbox and idiocy. Turns out the main antagonist is Canadian too, but grew up in the states. So that justifies why she's so evil. And then "let's poison our own water forever, that'll send the Americans out of Canada. This is a good idea". And finally, in the last issue after MC goes Jihad John, her POW brother says she'll be remembered as one of Canada's greatest historical figures, right up there with "the Trudeaus"! HE WASN'T EVEN IN OFFICE YET AND VAUGHN WAS ALREADY STROKING HIS LIBERAL WILLY! Politics aside, Justin Trudeau hasn't even achieved anything of great note as Prime Minister, other than bring in 20,000 Syrians into Canada, and barely finding housing for them in cities like Vancouver and Ottawa.
This comic slipped up somewhere around issue 3, and just became Brian K. Vaughn's Canadian wet dream mouth piece.
At best it's a 6.5/10 mini series. Fuck anyone who thinks it's any better than that.
Actually Alpha Flight traveled to some weird parralel dream earth with reed Richards president, crazy paranoid captain america, rapist spiderman, and other evil marvel heros.
Alpha flight ends up killing them all before going back to their own earth.
I thought it would actually be cool if Wolverine deals with his time in Alpha Flight. Mysterious man killing people and turning their body into dry husks have the natives talking about Wendigos, forcing the team in investigate. However, Guardians' distrust of native legend brings tension between him and Logan about how the research should be investigated. Doesn't help that there's a sexual tension between Logan and Guardian's girlfriend. They eventually capture Sasquatch, who Guardian is convinced is the culprit but Logan thinks he's innocent. Thanks to him they learn that the real bad guy is Omega Red who crossed the Bering strait and is hiding in the wildness preying on people. They beat him, Guardian and Logan's tension boils over so they fight. Logan decides to leave, abandoning society for the woods once more. End credit is him coming upon the Hulk and reenacting that one cover. That would be a nice send off, give some attention to first world natives, flesh out the alpha flight mythos, give it a darker horror vibe as omega red hunts his victim, have a movie set entirely in the woods and snow, and lead to a potential MCU crossover.
Fuck you Red Ensign forever
B.C does have a great flag to and to bad we're to big of cucks to find any pride in it.
