Thanks, I tried my best.  Also, while I'm at, thank you for the kind
words re: Master Blaster specials, essays & WOMM.  The fourth issue of
the latter should be coming out soon-- I'll probably be done writing it
within a week and then I have to send it a few people to approve the
writing of their characters.

I'm not as familiar with the backstory/spinoffs myself, and so I would
be ill-suited to make those changes.  However, I do have some
structural advice for any author that does take it upon themselves to
add this information.

I think it would be best suited under the section entitled "The
Looniverse", which details aspects of the LNH world.

The Looniverse
1. The basic info about the Looniverse
2. The back-story
3. The LNH itself
4. Other Notable Teams
5. Spin-Off Series (which would also incorporate the LNHY and LNH2)

Since the discussion of WCs seem to fit better in the Evolution
section, I would then move it there, creating the separate sections:

1. WCs and NWCs
2. Notable Characters
3. Notable Series

We should still act with an eye towards keeping things concise, but I
certainly think the characters section needs fleshing out.  First of
all, all the characters listed are men.  Now, there are more men than
women (I think) but still, we need to have a few in there.

Also, most of the characters are wReam's-- and, really, this is because
I find that wReam's characters are the most essentially LNH-like.
Since there are many, many more people who have fleshed out the Legion
in the intervening period, things should be more balanced.

I think expanding the character list to an even dozen would be a safe
bet.  And...

... these are excellent suggestions, Arthur.  I'd say throw in
Sarcastic Lad or Pocket Man for good measure as well.
