That carried over into issue #121 wherein Cyclops, Storm, and Colossus broke into the Calgary Stampede fair grounds to get Nightcrawler and Wolverine back. Alpha Flight was waiting for them though and made their own preparations. After making their presence known, Vindicator offered for the mutants to take Nightcrawler and go home safely.
When the inevitable scuffle broke out between the two teams, Wolverine and Nightcrawler revealed that they'd been faking their unconscious state and entered the fray. As the two groups fought, Vindicator and Wolverine argued about their shared past with Logan saying he never wanted in and James telling him that it was he and Heather who helped calm his rage.
The blizzard Shaman summoned eventually grew too strong and Storm managed to quell it. But for her efforts, she got clocked by Northstar who would have lost some teeth to Cyclops if Wolverine hadn't stopped him. Instead of continuing the fisticuffs, Logan agreed to go with Alpha Flight which allowed the X-Men to get home safely. Though he allowed himself to be loaded onto a truck, he managed to escape and hitched a ride back home with his friends!
Wolverine would return to Canada to deal with Alpha Flight and the others in UNCANNY X-MEN (1963) #139-140. The team eventually scored their own ongoing in 1983, with Byrne writing and drawing the team he co-created—that series ran until ish #130 in 1994. Since then, the team has grown and expanded, evolved, and been completely rejuvenated.
