A truly great battle issue. Clever, exciting. Both teams are written as interesting and flawed. Only the misplaced arrogance of Alpha Flight makes us dislike them, they are good characters. Great twist ending, too. 10/10

  Nice skirmish. The Canadian X-men!

Holy crap, it's a Sasquatch, lol!

For a bunch of people with civilian identities, Alpha Flight aren't trying to mask their faces much.

"What is Northstar doing? He's moving behind Cyclops!"
Har, har! *snicker*

  Nice battle issue but man what a dirty move from Alpha Flight! My only beef here the ending was kinda lame. Of course Wolverine would escape nothing could stop that maniac, James Hudson should have know that already! Wasn't he behind Weapon X?

  It's a real treat hitting the X-Men books while progressing through the order. I just like to sit back, take my time and savour the read. Thank you Mr. Claremont and Mr. Byrne for making this series what it is.

  Better than last ish. Can't say I'll miss Alpha Flight though. They seem like a bunch of crooked "heroes". And what exactly was Aurora's power?

  Would have been 5 stars without the convenient ending. This could have gone on another 2-3 issues.

  I wish it had shown Alpha Flight's faces when they got back to HQ and Wolverine was gone.

  If you are able to read Classic X-Men #27, they add a page showing just that!

  Thanks for that info.

Feels like a whole issue got skipped with Wolverine just showing up in the plane.
