Yeah, we've got like six months so we don't need to set everything to 
stone right this minute.  I say wait till January before we add the 

We've got Martin, Andrew, Rob, Ted, Lalo, and me so far.  Each of us can 
pick what characters we want to write about at this point.  But we 
should wait a few months to see if others are interested.

Saxon usually participates in these things... of course it's possible he 
might be burned out on RACC... been awhile since there was an End of the 
Months Review...

And there are others.  Dave maybe (come on Dave... you know you want 
to), Jamas... maybe some old LNH'rs like Jaelle, Tom, or Jamie Rosen 
would want to do an issue.  Some new LNH'r like Wil?  So let's just wait 
a bit.

Also my idea for this is that it's a series that takes place for 20 
weeks with each character issue being for its own week.

The first week wouldn't necessarily have to have all 20 members.  There 
could just be like six or seven members and they could be added over 
time till week 20 where there are 20 members.  And after that people 
could add how many ever characters they wanted to this LNH.

This should also probably have its own imprint.  So maybe LNHR (for 
Reboot)?  LNH20?  LNH2012?

This is the way I see it...

LNH2012: Catalyst Lass #1:  Week One

LNH2012: Irony Man #1: Week Two


LNH2012: Fearless Leader #1:  Week Twenty

I do think every issue should just focus on a specific character and 
their interactions with the LNH for whatever week it takes place.  The 
writer could do whatever they wanted for that issue.  If they want to 
have the character have some origin flashback they could do that.  If 
they don't.. then they don't have to.

And just because a character doesn't become a member of the LNH doesn't 
mean you couldn't include them in the issue.  I mean EDM Lite could be 
in the issue as a sidekick of the LNH'r Easily Discovered Man.

We should probably take all of this planning talk back to the Authors Group.
