Marvel Universe AURORA!
Alpha Flight's Aurora - Marvel Universe Series 05: No. 27 - Hasbro 2013

Alpha Flight is one of my favorite superhero team books of all time.  It's definitely the oldest of the list.  Sure, old X-Men and Avengers books were great, but I personally feel that they didn't age well.  When I read them now, I get bored.  The first few years of Alpha Flight, however, are timeless.  Aurora is Jeanne-Marie Beaubier, the twin sister of Northstar.  The twins are mutants that have superhuman speed and flight powers.  When together, they can also join hands and release a powerful energy burst.  Aurora was notable for having multiple personalities as a result of a traumatic childhood.  One personality was painfully shy and reserved, while the second was provocative and outgoing.  This made for some interesting storylines.  Hasbro's Marvel Universe line seems to be making a serious effort toward team-building.  Aurora shared a slot with her brother, making them the third and fourth Alpha Flight members in the line.  There are a lot more to go, but I think this is a great start.  Let's check out Aurora below!






Time for a Comparison Pic!



  1. passed on her TWICE... dumb, huh? She looks like a nice figure- probably should have picked her up

    1. Go back and GET her! haha. I think she's great, but I think you'll probably see her again. I still haven't seen Northstar (or Cloak again for that matter)
