Alpha Flight #33-34 (1986)

So you recently inherited a book written and drawn by the same guy who created the characters, and the book was doing phenomenally well with that kind of unique voice and view.  What do you do when you’ve met John Byrne and you know you’re no John Byrne?

Bring in Wolverine!

To facilitate her training, the new Guardian asks the old Alpha Flight member for training help.

The result is a bunch of flashbacks about Wolverine’s history with Alpha Flight, and then Lady Deathstrike attacks them.

In the end, she changes her name from Guardian to Vindicator, which was the original name her husband used before he changed it to Guardian.

Creators: Bill Mantlo and Sal Buscema
