While trying to eradicate the stain of Clarke’s Department H, the new Alpha Flight came into conflict with the original Alpha Flight, who too was led by James MacDonald Hudson - the real one. Turned out that the younger version of Mac was a synthezoid modeled after him,  created by one of Department H’s sinister scientists, as the original was too difficult to manipulate. With not one but two James MacDonald Hudsons running around, Heather chose to move on from both of them, and she and Eugene tried dating each other for a time. This apparently did not go well, as a few months later they were back to just being friends. [Alpha Flight (2nd series) #20, Wolverine (2nd series) #142]

Despite of Heather eventually rekindling her vows with her husband and giving him a daughter, Puck continued to be a mainstay of Alpha Flight - through some of their better times but also the worse ones. When the team were a bit understaffed,  they fell prey to the attack of a demonic shaman. Only Shaman remained free, and he asked Wolverine for help. He transformed all of Department H into a hive, and possessed Sasquatch, Snowbird and Puck, turning them evil. Shaman asked Wolverine for help and, while Logan made his way through the overrun Department H building to deal with his possessed friends, Alpha Flight’s resident mystic defeated the demon on another plane of reality, restoring and the others to normal. [Wolverine (2nd series) #179]

More recently, Puck was among the members of Alpha Flight who were brought into conflict with a Plodex spaceark, and captured. Once Sasquatch gathered an all-new all-different Alpha Flight to rescue them, Puck and the original Alpha Flight decided they could be best served by returning the multitude of Plodex eggs on board the ship to the race's homeworld, and then live and work there raising the new generation of Plodex away from the conquering drives of their predecessors. Judd was last seen leaving with Guardian and the others for deep space. Since that time, a time-traveling version of Judd was summoned into the future by magic, along with the rest of the original Alpha Flight. [Alpha Flight (3rd series) #6, 12]

One version of Puck was then killed a few months later, battling the mutant named Michael Pointer who was possessed by the Collective. [New Avengers (1st series) #16]

The survivors have mourned Judd and the slain members of Alpha Flight as if they were truly gone, but it has never been expressly stated which version of Alpha Flight was murdered, or whatever became of the other Flight. It is also not known if Eugene and his estranged daughter, Zuzha Yu aka Puck II, who was also among the victims, ever learned of their relationship to each other before their death.
