I don't understand Marvel's need to constantly kill Alpha Flight characters, as it was Marrina and Wild Child not to long ago.
Kilmeaden......you could call it the fillet of cheddar
The current editors and Chris Yost have no respect for anything other than their own fan fiction. Since Alpha is not part of that, they feel like they can just kill them off and it won't matter to anyone.
The least they could do is write them in character...and maybe even with a little knowledge of their powers before they senselessly kill them.
Read about the greatest series ever, Alpha Flight...from the beginning!
I don't have any strong feelings on Diamond Lil as a character but I always thought her powers were really cool. Such a waste to get offed by Mortis.
