My experience with the LNH is seriously limited, but I can see how you 
might be right.

Now I'm getting the urge to play this same game with my own writings. 
What's my favorite year of Superhuman World stories?  You can actually 
find 20+ years online at .  Of those, 
I can see how 2010 might be objectively the best (thank you RACC for the 
support), but I had the most fun with 2003.  For one thing, it started 
with Odin doing my laundry.

The question gets complicated because before 1995 my "continuity" runs 
through the superhero games I based on the original stories.  I never 
published the campaigns, but I did perform them live at conventions.  My 
peak would have to be 1992.  That year I had a Superhuman Control 
Initiative scenario featuring Ellipsis and Crusher Joe as renegades; it 
saw convention play during the U.S. presidential campaign.
