Alpha Flight, Wolverine, Shaman
Snowbird is the daughter of the goddess, Nelvana, and Richard Easton, an archaeologist. A demi-goddess, she has the power to shapechange into any creature of the north, Created to combat the threat of the Great Beasts, Snowbird was a charter member of Alpha Flight when it first formed years ago. She apparently died when Alpha battled the being known as Pestilence, a fight that saw the death of her husband, Doug Thompson, RCMP, and her newly born baby. Snowbird’s spirit, and that of Thompson and their baby, apparently ascended to Paradise, home of the Inuit gods. After her death, Snowbird’s shapechanging body was occupied by Walter Langkowski – Sasquatch of Alpha Flight. Because Snowbird was female, Walter became a woman when in human form. Ultimately, Snowbird’s spirit returned to Earth and changed Walter back into a man.
Snowbird was long thought deceased, her soul in Paradise, until Alpha Flight and Wolverine discovered her living body in the clutches of A.I.M. Subsequent tests on the body revealed that it was indeed Snowbird, alive and whole. According to scientific evidence, Snowbird apparently regenerated back to life, but the question remains: if Snowbird is here in the living flesh, then whose body is it that Walter Langkowski now claims his own?
Currently recuperating from her imprisonment by A.I.M., it is only a matter of time before Snowbird returns to the active ranks of Alpha Flight.
