* TragicAIDSStory: Writer Creator/BillMantlo had wanted to have Northstar die of AIDS in a [[VerySpecialEpisode Very Special Issue]], but the idea was vetoed by editor Andy Mangels. Mangels explained his decision by saying he thought killing off Marvel's only gay superhero at the time by giving him AIDS was rife with UnfortunateImplications.

* OffscreenMomentOfAwesome: Snowbird's fight with the beast Kolomaq in #6 of the original series. It's an epic fight spanning six pages. Pity the reader actually sees none of it because it's all whited out by the snowstorm he conjured up.

* CaptainGeographic: Guardian and Vindicator always had this going on, though the entire original team plays up some aspect of Canadian culture: Mac, Heather, and Puck are from Ontario; Marrina's from the Atlantic Coast; Northstar and Aurora are from Quebec (with Northstar being a former separatist); Snowbird's from the Northern Territories; Shaman represents the First Nations; and Sasquatch is from [[TheOtherRainforest British Columbia]].

Added DiffLines:

* ArbitrarySkepticism: Walter has a lot of trouble convincing the legal system and banking industry that "Wanda" is still him, just [[GenderBender gender swapped]]. Even after shapeshifting into Sasquatch ''right in court''.


Added DiffLines:

* TheMindIsAPlaythingOfTheBody: Walter notably keeps his intelligence as Sasquatch, but its debatable if his stint as "Wanda" affected him. His occasional flirtatious "cutie" or "big boy" could just be part of his sense of humor. Even after he stops doing that, the bank claims "Wanda's" handwriting is far too different from Walter's to be the same person.

Alpha Flight is a fictional superhero team published by Creator/MarvelComics, noteworthy for being one of the few [[UsefulNotes/{{Canada}} Canadian]] superhero teams. Created by comic book writer/artist Creator/JohnByrne -[[AuthorAppeal who is himself Canadian]]- the team first appeared in ''ComicBook/UncannyXMen'' #120 (April 1979). It's considered an X-Men spinoff even though they're more like Canadian [[ComicBook/TheAvengers Avengers]]. Throughout most of its history, the team has worked for Department H, a fictitious branch of Canada's Department of National Defence that deals with super-powered persons. Most team members have [[CaptainEthnic distinctly Canadian attributes]], such as Inuit or First Nations heritage. Their name refers to the three levels of training that team members undergo- Alpha, Beta and Gamma- with Gamma Flight being the least trained and Alpha Flight the best. The other flights tend to act as sidekicks for Alpha (though one version of Gamma Flight [[FaceHeelTurn went rogue]].)

* MamaBear: Heather becomes this for her daughter Claire to a horrible extreme and acts as a deconstruction for the trope because of the actions she commits in the same of possessive motherhood. Her desire to gain custody of her daughter leads her to join an evil political party that takes over her country, kill her daughter's kind adopted parents which are actually her distant cousins, and eventually kidnap her daughter and head off to parts unknown without her husband's knowledge.
