Something wrong with a female PM?

Tony's got worldwide pull.

Like the man said, this is about last chances. And Pointer wasn't responsible for anything that happened. He's just as much a victim as Alpha Flight.

Not really strange. Nothing we didn't already know.

> Nitro flashback?).

No. That was a flashback to The Collective killing most of Alpha Flight.

No, we had one. Just enjoy the comic world to be close to real world when possible. Tony Stark or Red Skull as Secretary of State could last unnoticed for awhile but everyone knows the president or prime minister. Lex as POTUS was okay for a plot device but last too long. Hopefully this female prime minister will be replaced by the real one asap.

True. It's too many 'all of a sudden' revelations of a degree of strong freindships/intamacy seem a lot to swallow 'all of a sudden' when readers have so much established IM history to feel grounded with. This was totally more a comment than complaint.

Cannot see it happening - replacing the iconic symbol of Canada with this particular person with his arguable crimes of killing.

But surprised every Nelly in 616 has had such easy access.

That was honestly my initial presumption. Then posted the question as such because they looked more like civilians than Alpha. Thanks for the info.
