A much older James Hudson claims to be the real McCoy, the progenitor and leader of Alpha Flight since the team’s inception years ago. According to his memories, he had returned to the new Department H after it’s resurrection, only to find it a very different department from the one he helped create. He was taken prisoner by the new H, had his entire cerebral cortex wiped clean and his battle suit programmed to carry him into space and into imminent death. By some lucky stroke, he managed to command the suit to reverse its flight, plunging him back to Earth where he landed in Antarctica. As happenstance would have it, Dr. Walter Langkowski – the Alpha called Sasquatch – happened to be working at a nearby base and found Hudson, near death. Langkowski revived Hudson and together, they gathered the original members of Alpha Flight to try and get some answers from the new, sinister H.
Upon rejoining the new Alpha’s, Mac learned that he was the original Guardian and that the young imposter was a synthoid created by the Department to supplant him. Since then, Guardian I has resumed his role as leader of Alpha Flight.
