Thanks!  May said the same, so if you both think so, I guess I'll have to 
believe it.  This is one thing I was very afraid of, but it was really 
necessary for the character.  Glad you think I pulled it off!

I don't know why, but I always wanted a trilobite character.  Then again, 
I always wanted an incorporeal, abstract character, and I rarely ever use 
Blur :-)

Hmm, that could work.  I'll think about it.  The thing is, in the 
Looniverse, some powers tend to require a bit more space to explain... 
I'll have to ponder the format.  So don't expect it in the text issue :-) 
but that doesn't mean I won't do it.

      So many of our dreams at first seem impossible,
       then they seem improbable, and then, when we
       summon the will, they soon become inevitable.
