Hi.  I'm back.  I've just spent the last week-and-a-bit on leave 
working with my dad to renovate a kitchen, and I haven't had 
access to either work or home internet during that time.  It'll 
probably take a while to catch up with the postings, and in the 
meantime I've been so exhausted that I'm even further behind 
than normal with my writing...

I'm sure that I noted what the acronym for Pulls-Paper-Out-Of-Hats 
Lad was as far back as my preparations for the 'Decimation' arc in 
L-ALad -- and although I can't find any trace of it on the newsgroup 
I'm also sure that I decided to avoid it wherever possible.  
But you realised that later, so I'm not going to rag on about it too 
much.  Just let it be noted that if you want to be purile with the 
names of the Legionnaires, you're going to have to write the stories

Bah humbug.  This is exactly the sort of thing that the copy'n'paste 
function in word processing programs were made for.

Okay, I'll see what - if anything - I can do with that.  But it suddenly 
occurs to me that Hellary being a hermaphrodite adds a whole new 
layer of subtext to her slinking around in those White Queen outfits 
for the Heckfire Club.
Then Rob noted:

I'm pretty sure I was thinking of the way the Connor Hawke Green 
Arrow ended up with the archery skills of his Ollie Queen Green Arrow 
father without having met him until young adulthood, but in retrospect 
I was probably influenced by the way Susan Sto Helit inherited the 
abilities of her adopted grandfather, Death, in the Disworld novels.  
But there are more than enough examples to go around.
