many years later [05 Jul 2015|01:41am]

This is a novel in progress that I started and abandoned a long time ago, which I picked up again to update, adapt, improve (I hope), and finish. It features the Beaubier twins (and a host of others), in a grand and perhaps futile attempt to make Alpha Flight somewhat plausible in actual Canada. As plausible as a superhero story ever gets, anyway.

Title: The Heart's Landscape
Author: F.A. MacNeil
Summary: Joel and his friend Paul run a Catholic Worker house for homeless mutants in Montreal. When they meet Jean-Paul and Jeanne-Marie Beaubier, who are offered suspicious work with the Canadian government, Joel and his friends become embroiled in a system that may not be as benevolent to mutants as it appears. A political story with elements of medical mystery and queer romance.
Fandom: You could consider this original fiction taking place in the X-Men univervse. Which one? Uhh. There's heavy borrowing from Alpha Flight vol. 2 and light thievery from Ultimate X-Men. The X-Men movieverse is now such a canon jigsaw puzzle that I give up on trying to situate anything there. It might fit with the current Marvel Cinematic Universe if you squint.
Status: Six chapters of a projected twenty completed. (54K words so far.)

So there are a lot of original characters, but familiar faces as well: Jean-Paul and Aurora, obviously, Heather and Jim Hudson, Walter Langkowski, Kyle Gibney/Wildchild, etc. It is a sequel, and reading The Aphanes first may answer some questions about the characters, but otherwise I think it stands on its own.

Funny Animation [11 Sep 2010|01:24am]

These days I've finished my X-Men "Communication break dancer" meme.
It's a funny animation about many X-characters and one of these is our dear Northstar (with Bobby who plays a very dumb part because he makes the mistake to ask Jean-Paul for Aurora's cell-number...)

Spongebob's Sirenoman and Perceveboy 5 suit [21 Jul 2010|10:41pm]

[ mood | happy ]

I think the Spongebob Squarepant's suit of the episode called Sirenoman and Perceveboy was tacked for Northstar's Uncanny X-Men Suit. He have many elements of Northstat suit including the power, or course, super speed!, I thing Bob was a good, cute and fun parody or Northstar. What do you think about?

Reading Question [13 Feb 2010|01:26pm]

I admit to being a bad fan and I'm here for some help! Basically, I've completely fallen behind with Northstar-related shenanigans and was hoping you guys could point me in the right direction. What issues should I read to follow what happened to Northstar after the whole re-animation in Wolverine debacle? I know he was a big part of the 2007 X-Men annual, but what other issues should I read?

Thanks guys =D

Hey, Northstar has always been a favorite of mine (even in his Alpha Flight days) and I just discovered this community
so hello fellow Jean-Paul fans!

Hullo, I'm an absolutely brand new member and I had a very important question: suppose someone, like me for instance, wanted to get an exceedingly good grasp on Jean-Paul's character, life, and what it means to be Northstar, which issues of what series should they read and study?

Furthermore, are there any fandom-produced materials one should read? Essays, fic, biographies, the like.

Thank you so much for your time.

Musings of a newb [28 Feb 2009|02:29pm]


This comm is in desperate need of some updating. Unfortunately, I come bearing nothing except a desire to hear your opinion.

What's your take on JP as a villian? We all know (except Marvel writers, apparently) that he has some anger-managment issues, and it doesn't seem to take alot to convince him to kill people. Like, to the point where I've been wondering if he's actually against the idea of murder or just covering his ass when his teammates are in the room.

His excuses for hurting large numbers of people (normally without reason) aren't well- thought out, just well explained Mostly, he just says 'I didn't know', or 'it wasn't my fault' and then goes back to standing in the background.

So, my question is; do you think JP would make a better villian than a hero, or at least a better anti-hero?

Let the Tournament begin! [11 Dec 2008|10:38pm]

There is still time to get into the game before the big tournament next Saturday. Mutant against mutant. Are you strong enough to beat the King Fischer's pet?

Welcome to Revolve...

Man, I see...the strongest and smartest men who've ever lived. I see all this potential, and I see squandering. God damn it, an entire generation pumping gas, waiting tables; slaves with white collars. Advertising has us chasing cars and clothes, working jobs we hate so we can buy shit we don't need. We're the middle children of history, man. No purpose or place. We have no Great War. No Great Depression. Our Great War's a spiritual war... our Great Depression is our lives. We've all been raised on television to believe that one day we'd all be millionaires, and movie gods, and rock stars. But we won't. And we're slowly learning that fact. And we're very, very pissed off.
