Yep.  Saxon suggested that "black cape" or "black mask" would be a
good villain's counter-part to Eightfold's hero-oriented "four-
colour".  I thought either form was a great, evocative, easy-to-grasp
turn of phrase, so great, in fact, that I went and made a last minute
change in my own JOLT CITY # 19 (in particular, the third part),
changing the unwieldy phrase "costumed super-powered criminals" to
"black masks".  I might even retroactively work either version into
JOLT CITY # 12-17 when I get around to revising them.

World-building, woot!

==Tom, thinks it might be time for a Doc-Class, union-suited Eightfold
Jargon Guide to make its first-app.
