                    LNH Comics Presents #400

                   "Incredibly Stupid Man's Day"

  Pulls-Paper-Out-Of-Hats Lad pulled a piece of paper out of his hat,
just as he had done every since the beginning of this month of April,
this month of April which had now gone on for the length of an entire
year, and read the name he found on it, the name of the next leader of
the Legion of Net.Heroes.
  "Incredibly Stupid Man," he said.
  "Yes!" Incredibly Stupid Man said.  "Yeeha!"
  "You do realize that you will end up disappearing at midnight, don't
  "Of course," Incredibly Stupid Man said, "unless I solve the mystery
of these disappearances."
  Pulls-Paper-Out-Of-Hats Lad raised an eyebrow.  "What makes you
think you can succeed where Doctor Stomper, Occultism Kid and Kid
Kirby all failed?"
  Incredibly Stupid Man smiled.  "I figure the solution is something
obvious.  Something right in front of us.  I figure there had to have
been something that each and every one of the LNH leaders must have
done before they disappeared and if I think about - really think about
it - I should be able to think about what it could be."
  Pulls Paper Out of Hats Lad nodded.  "Okay.  In the meantime, you
need to take this."  He handed Incredibly Stupid Man a pill.
  "What's this?"
  "It's a code pill."
  "A what pill?"
  "A code pill.  It automatically uploads the Legion's secret codes so
that you can, for instance change the security protocols on the Peril
Room or, say, take control of the LNH robot duplicates should they try
to take over the Earth."
  "Not that that would ever happen," Irony Man's robotic duplicate
assured him.
  "I don't know," Incredibly Stupid Man said.  "Why can't you just
_tell_ me the codes?"
  "Because I don't know them.  Only the current leader of the LNH is
supposed to know the codes."
  "So why didn't all the other LNH leaders take the pill?"
  "They did."
  "They did?"
  "Yes.  But they all did it off panel."
  "But now it is explicitly being shown on panel?  Why?"
  "After a whole year's worth of the same storyline the authors are
running out of ideas and showing things they wouldn't normally show."
  Just then, the toilet flushed and Cannon Fodder walked out of the
bathroom.  "Oh man!" he said.  "Remind me never to eat at that Mexican
place again!"
  Pulls-Paper-Out-Of-Hats Lad pointed at Cannon Fodder's fly.
  "Um... Cannon Fodder?"
  "Hmm?  Oh sorry!" he said and then zipped up his fly.
  Incredibly Stupid Man nodded.  "Okay, I see what you mean."
  "So you'll take the pill?"
  "Sure.  Can I have a glass of water?"
  "I've got a bottle of water here."
  "Thanks."  Incredibly Stupid Man took the pill and washed it down
with some water.  He handed the bottle back to Pulls-Paper-Out-Of-Hats
  "Um... no... you keep that now.  It's yours."
  Incredibly Stupid Man smiled.  "Okay.  Thanks."  He thought for a
moment.  "Okay... let's see... is there anything - anything at all -
that each of the LNH Leaders have done these past 365 days?"
  "Nothing I can think of," Pulls-Paper-Out-Of-Hats Lad said.
  "You got me," Cannon Fodder said.
  "Damn," Incredibly Stupid Man swore.  "There's got to be something.
Something obvious!"
  Pulls-Paper-Out-Of-Hats Lad shrugged his shoulders.
  "You'd think if it were that simple that somebody would have caught
on by now," Cannon Fodder said.
  Incredibly Stupid Man nodded.  "You're right, of course."  He
thought some more.  "Okay, so whatever it is it isn't obvious, but
that doesn't mean it won't come to me eventually.  I'll be in my
office thinking about it."
  Pulls-Paper-Out-Of-Hats Lad nodded.  "Okay.  Fine.  See you tomor--
oh God, sorry!"
  Incredibly Stupid Man laughed.  "Don't worry about it!  If I can
solve the mystery of what happened to all of our teammates then you
will see me tomorrow!"

  Of course, he didn't solve the mystery and he ended up disappearing
at midnight just like everybody else.

                                         THE END
