Ok I vaguely remember a set of half-brothers from the second volume of Alpha Flight named Flex and Radius. I seem to remember they were both trying to figure out who their fathers were and they were both raised in an orphanage.

I seem to remember Radius turned out to be the son of the X-Men villain Unus...but I don't remember who Flex's father turned out to be. In fact I sort of assumed the two half brothers had the same mother but maybe I'm remembering wrong and Unus was his father too and they had different mothers. Anyone remember?

Also was it ever confirmed that Carmella Unuscione was Unus's daughter? I'm curious if Radius is her brother, half-brother or maybe a more distant relation like nephew or cousin.

I always liked Unuscione. I wish they had done more with her. Was she depowered? If not, I hope we see her again soon.

oops just checked and answered my own question lol.
Well I still hope to see them develop her more. I really like her.

... I think it was at least partially implied that Flex's dad was Wolverine. As I say, however, my memories of the intricacies of that book are very vague indeed. Pity, because it was really good \:\(

It wasn't "implied", it was "the writer gave an interview where he said Flex was meant to be Logie's son, but someone within Marvel decided Wolverine wasn't going to have a son" (oh, how things have changed), and thus all we got in-story was "you'll never believe who my father is".

As for Unuscione, they've never clarified her connection to Unus in-story, but I think one of the handbooks may have confirmed him to be her father.

Well, we were also told that Flex's dad had a connection with Department H.

They were pretty radical weren't they? Didn't Cortez slaughter a hospital full of humans?

Anyway - yes, she was the member of Cortez's Acolytes. Her first appearance was in UXM #298, where she was part of the group that murdered Sharon Friedlander and also attacked a bus full of children.
