Isn't it, though?  I wish I could take credit for, but it's a term I 
found on Wikipedia ( a 
while back.  If Antiochus V is the Ultron of ASH, I like to think CR 
something akin the the Phalanx.

Fleet lives in the dead husk of Bruticus somewhere in the galaxy, and 
before anyone says, "You mean like Knowhere in Guardians of the Galaxy," 
I would like to point out that I've had my eye on Bruticus as a 
retirement space-villa as far back as 2006:

Believe me when I say, Cameron and I would love to do more fight scenes. 
  He's got this one idea choreographed out where he drives a motorcycle 
into the middle of an armed warehouse...where Mekanique has Jennifer 
hostage...bursts through a wall, transforming in mid-air from motorcycle 
to mecha suit, then proceeds to dismantle about twenty cyborg thugs, 
climaxing in a mecha battle between Mekanique and himself...quite 
reminiscent of the Iron Man/Iron Monger battle, but with more 
Transformers.  The only problem is, *SOMEONE*...I won't name names...set 
the universe up so that people without Magene's don't get to do those 
kinds of things, so from within the narrative, Cameron is pretty much 
less than useless in an actual fight.

Hopefully, once I get #11 and #12 written and watch "The Adventures of 
Buckaroo Banzai Across the Eighth Dimension" twenty more times for 
inspiration to writing The Reverse Engineers, Spaz & Co. will be more 
fight-ready than LL&DD. :-D
