Maison Alpha is a two-story headquarters once used by the team Alpha Flight, located in what was the Civic Block, 4 Sir Winston Churchill Square, in the city of Edmonton, province of Alberta, Canada. The original structure of the Maison was built in 1957 by the city of Edmonton to be used as a city hall and civic offices. The building was donated by the city to Alpha Flight following their defeat of the Dreamqueen in Edmonton. The mutant Madison Jeffries used his ability to transmute metals to reconfigure the facility internally.

Famous quotes containing the words description and/or fictional:
“Everything to which we concede existence is a posit from the standpoint of a description of the theory-building process, and simultaneously real from the standpoint of the theory that is being built. Nor let us look down on the standpoint of the theory as make-believe; for we can never do better than occupy the standpoint of some theory or other, the best we can muster at the time.”
—Willard Van Orman Quine (b. 1908)
“It is change, continuing change, inevitable change, that is the dominant factor in society today. No sensible decision can be made any longer without taking into account not only the world as it is, but the world as it will be.... This, in turn, means that our statesmen, our businessmen, our everyman must take on a science fictional way of thinking.”
—Isaac Asimov (19201992)
