Super Canadians

Wednesday, August 11, 2010
Here's a shout out to our Canadian friends.  One of the best things about living in Korea was getting to know so many awesome people from many different countries.  It was like being in a Benetton commercial or living across the street from the UN.  Although the language barrier was tough when speaking to our Canadian friends, we still got along just fine, eh.

So CJ ran across this guy in the store the other day:

You don't see too many Canadian superheroes running around.  This guy is the "Guardian" and he was the leader of Canada's first superhero team.  This team was called "Alpha Flight."  One claim to fame about Alpha Flight is that one of its members, "Northstar" was the first mainstream openly gay superhero ever.  Not sure what his super power was.  Color coordinating maybe?  Kidding.

This is Alpha Flight.  Northstar is the guy on the left in black and white.  

Just to be clear for those that have never been to Canada, not all Canadians are superheroes.  Anyway, Carol and I were both reminiscing about the good times we had with our Canadian friends.  Scott, Sarah, Amber, Dan, Nikki, Maria, Steve, AJ, Will and all of you other Canucks - you might not be able to leap a tall building in a single bound, but you're all super in my book.
