Beta Ray Bill

So Beta Ray Bill seems to be appearing on a few of these comic book internet weblogs today (or rather recently anyway). I'm wondering if he will be the next Blue Beetle?

You know what I mean right? People go on about how awesome he is but don't actually buy his comics because (shock, horror) they could actually be poorly written so the company that owns him kills him off and everyone cries "Foul!"

Probably won't happen but it would be kind of neat.

Although Marvel would just clone him or make him a Skrull or something. Maybe they'd make him the new Spider-man.

Well, he's in Omega Flight isn't he? I thought that sold well?

That said, Alpha Flight is a team that exemplifies the "Blue Beetle" theorem. Nobody buys the book, but everyone wants it around. See the outrage when they bought it in New Avengers a year or so back.

Omega Flight/Alpha Flight or whatever it's called is just a somewhat good idea gone horribly awry.

I'd just like to see a Canadian based team that wasn't full of outside stereotypes and non-Canadians. I don't know why it bothers me but it does when I think about it. I guess my solution is to do what I normally do with Alpha-Omega Flight, and just not think about it.
