Here's a breakdown of Who Captain Canuck is. He's a secret operative with CSIS apparently.

I've never heard of him....let alone ive not once seen it in my comic store anywhere...also two million copies total? That isn't a lot...

I've heard of Captain Britain or whatever and so on.

Looked it up its an indie comic, so at least thats the good side of it. i always support indie comics. Other than that the description is "cross between Captain America (surprise?) and Flash" so hmmm....

Yeah, I remember when I first saw Captain Canuck I thought he was a redesigned Guardian from Alpha Flight. It wasn't until I actually bought a few copies of the old 1975 series that I realized he was someone totally different.

You should really check out the IDW graphic novel collections, they are quite interesting. Hm, I wouldn't mind seeing this movie if it gets made.

Sounds interesting...I'm always ready for something new and different.
