    Issue: Alpha Flight: Chaos War
    Writer: Jim McCann
    Artist: Reilly Brown
    Date Published: November 2010
    Alpha Appearance: Classic, original team! YAAAAAAAAAAAYYYYYYYY!!! (no Puck, though.)
    Period in Alpha Flight's history: Concurrent with Puck in Wolverine's Hell, after the Incredible Hercules Sacred War.

    OVERVIEW: Chaos War is Marvel's latest crossover event. A Chaos King has awoken and is destroying the realms of sleep and death and all the gods and generally messing things up. Yep, it's another Tuesday on Earth 616.

    By destroying all the realms of death, he's sent all the dead back to life. (Blackest Day much?) By destroying the realm of dream, he's put everybody to sleep. That doesn't make sense! Shouldn't it hit the Marvel Universe like a coffee high? It isn't even internally consistent!

Next the Chaos King destroyed the Underwold; and as a consequence, some of the undead spirits have fled to the surface world; caught in a limbo between dreaming, living and death. Now the Chaos King seeks to destroy every pantheon that has ever existed. And this is where our story begins...
