Warning for rape

Alpha Flight #41...

After trying to talk to Northstar, Kara realizes she can use her powers on him like her father did and decides to romance him. He takes her to some place 'exotic'.

A nearby alligator attacks her, and Northstar rescues her. In the process, she loses her control over him.


She escapes, using Madison to take her away.

The Auctioneer kidnaps her, planning on using her powers for his own end.

Did Killgrave ever meet her? (and god help us if they use her in Jessica Jones... a part of me feels like it would be interesting to explore, the other part of me doesn't want them to turn her into PM 2.0)

Van Lente already turned her into a villain in his Alpha Flight series. Probably for the sin of not being an original member of the team.

did that take though... last I recall she was a Villain in Fear Itself, but like, not before that, and not after that....

I had thought she was being mind controlled into that villainy (there was a lot of mind control going on in that run)? At least, that's how I read it at the time, though it's been since it came out.

Kara sort-of resurrected her father in ALPHA FLIGHT #62, wondering if he could possibly love her and her mother.

If you (rightfully) hate your dad and your skin color, would you really go by "Purple Girl"?

IIRC, she changed it to "Persuasion."

She did, though given her powers are compulsion, not perusuasion, I always thought it a misnomer.

Is Northstar's "cold" the beginnings of the abandonded "Northstar Gets AIDS" plotline, I wonder?

Alas, yes. That abandoned plotline became "Northstar and Aurora's mummy was an Asgardian elf and he's suffering from all the pollution in an environment he's not suited for" in Alpha Flight 50.

Poor Kara.
She was a good character, especially since they could explore some of the issues concerning mind control heroes.

I wish they could bring back a decent Alpha Flight title as part of this whole Legacy thing. There are a lot of good AF characters who aren't doing anything better... and a few who could be repurposed. (Seriously, Aurora, Puck, and Sasquatch as part of the Alpha Flight space program? Like whaaaa?)

"I feel.... as if I've been raped!"

"And by a woman! No wonder you're so upset!"

That's... really not okay.
