ALPHA FLIGHT #18-19 (1985): 1st Talisman

The cover and splash tease us with the idea that Guardian’s widow might put on the power suit. But ultimately, Heather decides against it.

When John Byrne leaves the book, she’ll change her mind in the hands of new creators.

The rest of the story is Shaman focused. Shaman is my least favorite character on this team, and mystical stories are some of my least favorite in comics, so I’m not a huge fan of this story.  However, having the team fight breakfast is amusing. 


Shaman’s daughter becomes a hero, as this is the first appearance of Talisman.
