Alpha Flight #77 (1989)


This is a Vindicator solo story, in which Kingpin is tied to funding a U.S. military-led black-ops overthrow of the government of “Costa Brava,” which is obviously a stand-in for the Contra scandal.  A Senator goes to Canada to meet with an ex-pat who has information on the dirty deals, and gets assassinated, so Vindicator steps in.  The results are…

…Actually, I was going to say “better than most Alpha Flight issues,” but “excellent” is apt if we’re comparing it to any of the prior 50 issues of this book.

Kingpin never leaves N.Y.C. and Vindicator stays in Calgary, so they never meet.
