That's what I'll be setting aside time to write for and that's what we should advertise to our friends, and heck, if new readers get bored that we're not writing fast enough to sate them, they can go hit the archives and knock themselves out with top-quality Classic LNH stuff.

First we would need to decide who the 20 characters would be.  Perhaps
we could combine my idea with Arthur's and have origin stories but
then have the characters come together in the end. The question would
be how the new LNH would form and why.

Now here's an idea.  What if by some coincidence the Legion of
Net.Heroines, the League of Net.Heroes, the Legion of New.Heroes and
the Legion de Net.Heroes were to form at the same time and there was
some argument over the rights to the name LNH and they came up with
"Legion of Net.Heroes" as a compromise?

Legion of Net.Heroines [Origin: five female friends / heroes band
together sporting genuinely nice costumes and working it!]
1) Minority Miss
2) Sister State-the-Obvious
3) aLLiterative Lass
4) Linguist Lass
5) New Look Lass

League of Net.Heroes [Origin: five genuinely powerful heroes join
forces to battle a genuinely powerful menace!  Maybe we need to create
a new villain: Dr. Lo Kee.  His catchphrase is: "Okay, well, I guess I
should kill you now"]
1) Fearless Leader
2) Irony Man
3) Kid Kirby
4) Master Blaster
5) Occultism Kid

Legion of New Heroes [Origin: Five friends start calling themselves
the Legion of New Heroes as a lark.]
1) Coward Lad
2) Super Apathy Lad
3) Bad Timing Boy
4) Sarcastic Lad
5) Cheesecake Eater Lad

Legion de Net.Heroes [Origin: Easily Discovered Man recruits three of
his students and one of his colleagues to join with him in forming the
1) Kid Enthusiastic
2) Easily Discovered Man
3) Easily Discovered Man Lite
4) Special Bonding Boy
5) Doctor Stomper

[I left out Wiki Boy.]

Maybe we can have different arcs.  The first arc features four origin
stories, say one for Minority Miss, one for Cheesecake Eater Lad, one
for Easily Discovered Man and one for Irony Man et al.  Then with four
different LNH's you could have Darksnide tell Magna Man to capture the
LNH.  He does so three times until being defeated by the League of
Net.Heroes who then free the other LNH's.  The various LNH's argue
over the right to call themselves the LNH.  Maybe we would only need
four more issues to wrap up that storyline, giving everybody the
chance for solo adventures and character interaction.  Or maybe this
could be combined with the Time Crapper suggestion... although I'm not
exactly sure how that would work.  Perhaps we should stay away from
meta story references in this LNH and not have this LNH know that they
are an alternative version of a fictional reality.

So, yeah, I'm thinking maybe twelve issues altogether could be done by
next April.
