Synopsis:	Alpha Flight returns to Ungava Bay (see X-Men/Alpha Flight
miniseries) to find magical cures for the twins.
	Knapp joins Beta Flight and begins dating Kara. (She is 13; he is a doctor.
Hmm.)
	The firefountain is not active, but Aurora finds a gate at its bottom, which
the team enters. The twins stay behind, while the rest find a black firefountain.
They are in Svartelfheim, home of the dark elves, who attack. Judd is pushed into
the firefountain, which releases Raazer and cures his dwarfism.
	Loki gives the twins a vision of their father finding and marrying the elf
Danae. When the elves came to take her back, they fled and crashed their car,
killing both. This explains the twins' powers, pointed ears, and maladies, since
elves cannot live long on Midgard.
	Aurora uses her light to heal Northstar, sacrificing herself, and dark elves
carry her off. Northstar, shining bright, attacks Raazer, but the team still has
to retreat. They close the gate behind them, abandoning Aurora and Judd.
Northstar leaves the team, and a gate opens to receive him to Alfheim.
	They Who Sit Above in Shadow question Loki, who says he has had a now

trick him into Svartelfheim, where the dark elves and Raazer attack him.

Alpha Flight and makes them fight the Derangers, who were survivors from
Scramble's lab (see iss. 48). Whichever team survives will become his new
super-race.
	Wolverine and Jeffries bury their minds in animal and machine, respectively,
so Bedlam won't notice their approach. But Bedlam lies to Wolverine, telling him
