Major Maple Leaf
Personally I'm boycotting Marvel, but I can't illustrate this Fan Expo-related post without reference to Dale Eaglesham's image from the Fan Expo promo comic book featuring Alpha Flight and this character who I think is Major Maple?
Links and crinks from the world of Canadian cominx:
