Synopsis
Alpha Flight discovers that by going back in time and convincing Jimmy Hudson not to confront Jerry Jaxon in New York, they have changed the timeline and find themselves facing an army of Box robots created by Jaxon. Sasquatch does the math and decides to send Centennial back in time again, this time to convince Hudson to make the trip to face off with Jaxon hoping this will fix the time conundrum. This works to an extent as the Box robots in the present disappear but they are replaced by a corrosive acid rain that threatens to melt all of Canada.

Indexer Notes

In the story, Sasquatch refers to the "Gruenwaldian Laws of Time Travel" referring to former Marvel editor Mark Gruenwald who was a stickler for continuity and the havoc time travel played on said continuity.

Synopsis
Nemesis creates a future in which Guardian decides to take over the world. As new Alpha Flight battles old Alpha Flight, Sasquatch asks Shaman to fix the timeline by using his magic powers as Walter's solutions haven't worked. Shaman traps the old team in his medicine pouch and the new team returns to the "real" present right before they decided to muck about with the time stream. Sasquatch opens Shaman's pouch up and the old Alpha Flight comes tumbling out. So now with time unaltered, the old and new Alpha Flights are united as one.
