One of my all time favorite teams of superheroes not only because I am Canadian but because the characters are all unique and fit together nicely. Its a crime that in our country where such great cartoons as 'Atomic Betty' can get produced that we don't have a J Bone designed animated series based on this group. This image alone speak volumes on the talent of Mr Bone. Personally I would have liked to see Marinna added but we can quibble later over story meetings. In my cartoon, Alpha Flight would be the older, more experienced heroes who work with the military and Canadian government and train the next group of younger heroes on their way up. The Alpha Flight Universe has so many amazing characters that you would never run out of Beta Flighters eager to join the main squad. There, I just wrote season one for you. We live in the golden age for superhero cartoons. If there was one thing I wish my blog could do it would be for it to be seen by those who have the juice to shepherd such a project to completion. As a kid we had few truly Canadian heroes to admire and the marketing potential alone on this one would pay for the cartoon several times over.
Cal's Canadian Cave of Coolness
I forever stand vigilant to protect this planet from the myriad of forces that are always against us. Be it the octopus, zombies, aliens or the robots my team of human agents, and our feline allies, circle the globe in a never ending struggle for human freedom.
I learn all I can on every subject that interests me. I especially enjoy ancient history because in the past there are valuable lessons to be found. Also, if I ever get my time machine to work properly, it would be good to know a bit about possible destinations and what to expect when I get there.
I greatly appreciate beautiful design. Be it manufactured or found naturally I am fascinated by the process of invention. I am attracted to the unique, the strange, the haunted. I like to share what I find on this blog.
And not let us forget the 'Cephalopod Menace' who, if allowed to, would wrap their tentacles around all that is good and pure in this life and crush it until it remained no more. They are creatures of pure spite. Hate is all they know. Death is all they do. They are our most ruthless and determined enemy.
So we fight. Selena has the celebrity contacts, the cat is ruthless and without pity, Roosevelt's ghost has the experience and I do the wetwork.
Fighting for the future of the planet doesn't have to be a chore, however. We can take the time to appreciate all that is cool in this world even as we cut the octopus into bite sized chunks.
This is the reason there has always been and must forever be, a Cave of Cool. Be sure to wipe your feet before you enter.
