    • Elfa Strike: X-Men meets Alpha Flight.
      The name Elfa Strike alludes to the Canadian-based superhero team in Marvel Comics called Alpha Flight. The 4 members of Elfa Strike, on the other hand, correspond more closely to four members of The Uncanny X-Men:

      Wintergreen (Wolverine)--short, burly, bad-tempered, likes to scrap, distinctive cowl style, 3 candy cane claws in each hand, bones laced with peppermintium (adamantium), calls people "bub".

      Nutcracker (Nightcrawler)-- German accent, born misshapen, acrobatic, teleporter, uses words like "fraulein" and "liebchen".

      Snow Angel (Storm)-- African-descent, white hair, serene, can control snow. (weather)

      Coniferous (Colossus)-- Russian accent, tall and well-built, transforms his body into pine needles (metallic material).

      Santa's Reindeer (Cerebro)-- No real reindeer are seen. Santa merely sits in a sophisticated computerized room similarly designed liked the Cerebro room at the Xavier Institute where he determines which kids have been naughty or nice. The latter get good gifts, the former, coal.
