True.  The all out war of the LNH villains against the LNH robot
duplicates was a spectacular battle... but it wasn't what I was
expecting.  And when Dekay and Diskolor are defeated next year (and we
know they will) we should all wonder why they didn't kill the LNH when
they had the chance.  I mean, they kidnapped Kid Kirby.  KID KIRBY!
Or maybe some other cosmic emergency came up in (very) late April and
he never actually got to be leader.  Yeah.  That's got to be it.
Either that or this Kid Kirby was just another Kirbybot.  (Just about
every Kid Kirby story written by somebody other than Jameel was
retconned into being a Kirbybot when Jameel was still around so one
could just assume that the real Kid Kirby left when Jameel stopped
