History: (Alpha Flight IV#4) - After Vindicator introduced her daughter to her Alpha Strike teammates, most of whom were brainwashed into the service of the Master of the World, Wendigo held Claire as the brainwashed Kyle Jinadu and Wendigo's Alpha Strike teammates were told by the Master of the World to deliver Northstar.

(Alpha Flight IV#6) -  When Alpha Strike lured Alpha Flight out using a Kyle Jinadu public appearance on television, Wendigo entered the fight against Snowbird and Shaman by climbing the side of a building and grabbing Snowbird's leg on the rooftop. Announcing that she had once beaten a Wendigo single-handedly and would gladly do so again, Snowbird kicked Wendigo off the building. Climbing back up, Wendigo renewed his attack by Snowbird used a satellite dish to shield herself. Once Kyle Jinadu had been acquired by Alpha Flight's Marrina, Shaman summoned Snowbird back and Snowbird flew off as Wendigo grasped and missed catching her.

(Alpha Flight IV#7) - After Aurora's Jeanne-Marie personality betrayed Alpha Flight as planned and led Alpha Strike to their base camp, Wendigo was summoned to the base camp mystically, appearing alongside his Alpha Strike teammates via smoke conjured by Ranark the Ravager. Sasquatch immediately leapt into battle against Wendigo as Wendigo's Alpha Strike teammates engaged Alpha Flight.

(Alpha Flight IV#8 - BTS) - Sasquatch continued his fight with Wendigo but was not present after the Master of the World's defeat.

Comments: Created by Greg Pak, Fred Van Lente, Dale Eaglesham and Andrew Hennessy.

Wendigo's human physical stats were impossible to determine, as he was never seen in human form.

Thanks to MarvellousLuke for pointing out that Jason Aaron had intended the Wendigo in Wolverine & the X-Men to be an entirely new Wendigo and not the same one from Alpha Strike. This profile has now been updated to reflect only the Alpha Flight IV appearances of the Alpha Strike Wendigo while the Hellfire Academy Wendigo has been made into an entirely new profile.
