The Flight was a Canadian superhero team in the Marvel Comics universe. Their first (and, to date, only) appearance was in Alpha Flight Special vol. 2, #1 (1992).

The Flight was the designation for the Canadian superhero team first formed by Department H. Also founded by James Hudson, this team was inexperienced and taught Hudson the need for a tier system in Department H's use of superhumans. Thus Alpha Flight, Beta Flight, and Gamma Flight were created and developed.

Fictional team history

Inspired by the debut of the Fantastic Four, James MacDonald Hudson refined the purpose of Department H to find and/or develop Canada's superheroes. New recruit Groundhog joins Snowbird, St. Elmo, Stitch, Wolverine (as Weapon X), and Smart Alec in training. Within a week, the Flight is pressed into their first battle with Egghead's Emissaries of Evil. Egghead threatens the United States from Canadian soil with a nuclear missile. Smart Alec disables the missile's guidance system, but Egghead triggers the detonation sequence. Smart Alec panics, leading to St. Elmo transforming the missile and the bomb into light. St. Elmo succeeds, but loses himself in the process. Groundhog and Dr. Michael Twoyoungmen blast Hudson for sending the team into battle while so inexperienced, with a near psychotic leader (Weapon X) and someone who folds under pressure. Hudson thus makes plans for a tier team system, while Groundhog leaves Department H.
