Alpha Flight - AURORA!

Marvel Legends - Alpha Flight Boxset (Amazon Exc) - Aurora - Hasbro 2019

One thing I always loved about Alpha Flight was the great gender diversity within the team. Right off the bat the team had three interesting and diverse females, and within the first couple years they added two more. The original three ladies were so mysterious and intriguing. Snowbird was a cold and distant goddess, Marrina was a scaly aquatic creature with no memories of her origin, and of course Aurora, the powerful mutant with two distinct (and contradicting) personalities. Aurora and her twin Northstar have almost identical powers of super speed, strength, endurance, and flight (one twin may be more skilled at one power than the other, but it balances out), but Jeanne-Marie Beaubier really stands out from her brother by having disassociative personality disorder. When she is Aurora, she is bold and provocative, but when living as Jeanne-Marie she was timid and devoutly religious. Although her brother has garnered more headlines over the years, Aurora was always the more interesting sibling to me.

Time for some Group and Comparison Pics!

Here is Aurora with her pack-mate and twin brother, Northstar.

And here is the whole Alpha Flight Team so far (the six figures from this box set plus Sasquatch and Guardian from different 2019 waves). From Left to Right: Guardian, Vindicator, Sasquatch, Puck, Snowbird, Northstar, Shaman, and Aurora.



  1. So happy Hasbro made this set. Been wanting a full Alpha Flight team for a long time. Now just finish it off with Marina.

    1. Marrina and Talisman are suddenly on the top of my wish list!
