Greeting

Hello, Readers!

It's Reality House vs. the world - taking place in France!

Objective: Cross the Street

An Ad For Our
2008 Audience!
Patriotic Homeland Corps!

Bonus Section: Commentary from Wyatt Ferguson! Tugging on the Powernaut's Cape

Well, yeah. This isn't like Superman's cape which people supposedly can't tug on. People can tug on the Powernaut's cape and get away with it.

This ends another important commentary to our Superhuman World.

Don't Drop Us, Bro

Ambush at Will!

You Can LOSE!

-bleep- I Need Help!

It's a Surprise!

He's Not Shocking Her!

I Will Protect You, Cherie!

It Wants You

Bonus Section: Commentary from Wyatt Ferguson! The Villain Roster

I have my suspicions on who the master villain is. But he's still in hiding, so I can't be really sure. We know about the minions, though. This must be the point in the strip where you've seen them all (unless the master villain has something else to reveal). And they all had targets, though the Power School's operational plan complicated things.

  • Imperilus. American brawler with mid-to-high level superhuman strength, plus lots of practical experience. Assigned to take on the Powernaut. And he did so, happily.
  • Hard Falcon. American mercenary with unprecedented durability; he can regenerate himself from any of his own cells. Unlike some people with similar power, though, he tries not to need it that much. Assigned to take on Lauren Ferguson. And he did so, happily.
  • Free Sky. Russian mercenary with personal flight gear originally developed by his government. Assigned to take on Vnesa Stalker. He didn't much like taking on a vampire, though.
  • Chas Speed. American rogue with super-speed, given by the Ministry of Speed (a group of super-speedsters with access to some kind of speed force). Assigned to take on Capture, but instead served as scout and reserve.
  • Toledoth Torpedoth. Israelite warrior from the time of Joshua, transplanted to the modern age alongside tens of thousands of his comrades. Assigned and fated to confront the Toledo Torpedo, to determine who has the best Shadow Warrior powers. And he did so happily.
  • Boom Chick. British girl who can go Boom, and withstand any shock. Assigned to take on Zorch. So to speak. She wasn't much for combat skill, but that's not what she was there for. And she did so happily.
  • Patriotic Homeland of France. The Patriotic Homeland Corps lets one representative in from each nation where someone wants to volunteer. These are not required to have superhuman powers, though larger nations such as France can at least find someone with low-level superhuman strength. He got assigned by his Corps to patrol the area of this incident that night. He was alerted to the possibility of an American girl who might need France's protection that night. So he was expected to take on Intensity - and it happened.

Author's Notes:

This chapter takes place in Paris. I have now had to consider where exactly in Paris that might take place. There are two candidate places. But due to the chapter taking place around nuclear regulatory agencies, Google itself got sensitive about revealing the details around those locations! So I have felt free to make something up. Hence, "Rue de l'Atomique".

I had to consider the Toledo Torpedo's role in this series, especially when he cracked wise and claimed "Toledus Torpedus" as history. Sure, I'm his writer, but he made me do that. I was inclined to call bull$#!+, but I checked the linguistic origins first... "Toledo Torpedo" roughly means, "Shadow Warrior of Generations"! (Toledo itself is, "City of Generations". Or at least it was in Spain. And modern torpedos are shadow warriors of a sort; they got their name that way.) And "Shadow Warrior" matches his powers, possibly better than his creator ever intended. So, the Toledo Torpedo is right! I guess he joins Wyatt's family and the Powernauts as heroes across generations.

If your name is Patrick and you come from Lansing-Michigan, you are invited to contact the Powernaut on Facebook and claim the Toledo Torpedo. I will also let Karissa Stoker from metro Dallas-Texas claim the rights to Khrisa and Vnesa Stalker. (Heh, someone else came up with Khrisa's character name, but he was inspired by Karissa.) I will also let Amy Larsen from metro Seattle-Washington claim Intensity. I will also let Karen Eiler, Mark Eiler, and Andrew Jones claim themselves from superhero games we used to play when we were all younger. Bruce Klybourn is a character of Vaughn Gross.
