You’re welcome and thank you; I do appreciate that. It is one of those things that tends to heavily impact one’s whole perception of a character once it’s all laid out. Unfortunately, it also puts a lot of Alpha Flight fans right on the defensive, up to the point of blaming JM/Aurora rather than Walter or even the writers.
I actually went and read through your "fuck it this is a sasquatch hate blog" tag, and you make a very persuasive argument. If I'm honest, and I'm a little embarrassed by this, I'd never really considered the inherent consent issues in his relationship with Aurora. Thanks for making me think.
