I was just pointing out that like the location of the LNHQ and 
Net.ropolis the date when the current LNH formed is a fluid thing. 
There is no right answer.  To have a right answer about when the LNH 
formed would be very unLNH like.

As for stories about the LNH forming in 1992... I guess I was thinking 
of the one Tom Russell wrote... LNH #12... the 14th anniversary one 
which I believe had the Ultimate Ninja saying that the LNH was 14 years old.

While I like 'Lurk of Faith' it's not like some stuff that Scav wrote 
hasn't been retconned away.  When was the last time you saw any mention 
of L.E.G.I.O.N in an LNH story?

Myself personally, I think of the LNH as a 90's concept... so I'd say it 
should start sometime in the 90s.  Having it start in the 80's 
incredibly dates it.  Is there really any need for an LNH meets Mr. T 
story?  What with stuff like Retcon Hour and Mutton Mania I'm not sure 
why both answers can't be right.  The LNH started in the 80's and the 
90s and maybe the 00's.

And if Scavenger wants to get mad at this... he can...
It's not like he posts here anyways....
