CBR reported some news from Long Beach Comic Con this weekend, which might please some Canadians. Or not.
But it turns out that, on a panel with creators Tara Butters, Michele Fazekas and artist Kris Anka, it was announced that joining Captain Marvel on her mission to protect the Earth from strange alien invasions, will be Alpha Flight. The Canadian government-backed superteam who, up to know, mostly kept their feet on the ground.
"One of the things that's exciting about the space station,"Butters said, "is Carol is starting to be Earth's first line of defense — on the station with Alpha Flight."
But they also wanted to state that the helmet was gone, an editorial decision.
"Sana finally emailed me about it," Anka recalled. "There is no more helmet. The helmet makes no sense anymore [since] she can breathe in space." Since Carol's not hiding her face and identity, and the helmet's not going to protect her from anything, from a functionality standpoint, it's simply not necessary.
