Ooh, I apologise for that then.

(There was very little Final Crisis / Secret Invasion, in fact only one 
paragraph of exposition; but there *was* a lot of Dark Reign and DC's 

Although it does give me an opportunity to ask: was the story still 
enjoyable?  I *tried* to give those elements (the ones based on recent 
comics, as opposed to things like old Titans stories and the original 
Runaways run) enough explanation that you could more or less follow, and 
to make the story work even if you didn't get those.  Did I fail?

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