Haven't a clue about why in the world Self-Righteous Preacher would get 
in the leadership position.  Maybe everyone voted drunk.

I think a successor list would probably be why he would become leader.

That would be up to each individual writer.

Self-Righteous Preacher will get his own episode.

I'd go with the LNH Leaders having the whole day for leadership and 
vanishing at midnight.

I think that revelation should be saved till the last issue of this.

I'd put Cheesecake Eater Lad here---^

I'd put Kid Kirby here---^

I want Dr. Stomper, Occultism Kid, Sarcastic Lad, and Master Blaster to 
be in my Self-Righteous Preacher issue... so they'd be after SRP...

I personally think that by the time Kid Kirby disappears Dr. Stomper 
would see a pattern and decide that essential members (like Dr. Stomper, 
Occultism Kid, Multitasking Man, Organic Lass, Captain Cleanup, and 
Linguist Lass shouldn't be leader) and give it to more expendable members.

Lots of former Gen Y members on this list... :)

I think though that we should leave 10 slots open...

Not everyday has to be written.

We shouldn't set everything to stone.

Writers for stuff so far:

 > April 1st: Fearless Leader -- ????
 > April 2nd: Irony Man -- Martin Phipps
 > April 3rd: Catalyst Lass -- Tom Russell
 > April 4th: Cheesecake Eater Lad -- ????
 > April 5th: Kid Kirby -- ????

April 6th:  Self-Righteous Preacher -- Arthur Spitzer

Easily Discovered Man Lite -- Rob Rogers
Faq Boy -- Jamas Enright

I believe that the last time this subject came up Jaelle expressed some 

Writer's Block Woman -- Jaelle (maybe)

 > April 29th: California Kid

I'd like to see Saxon do a Bicycle Repair Lad issue myself... (so he can 
finally take care of the Hex Luthor plot.  :))

Of course if we're going to discuss what force is causing these LNH'rs 
to vanish we should probably take it to e-mail.
