Back when I was still going to write SotN #18, I had planned a scene
where the Gothic Gorilla sends Dr. Net.ropolis (fully healed -- no brain
damage) to another Looniverse that is beyond the reach of the Writers so
she could save it or whatever without their interference. So that's
where she is. And GG made some mystical construct of a dead body to
fool the LNH and public.
As to whether anyone besides GG knows if she's still alive (besides Dr.
Net.ropolis obviously), I think I had also intended to write a scene
with Dr. Stomper scanning her grave and realizing she wasn't there. So
I'd guess if anyone might know she's still alive it would be Dr. Stomper.
Regardless, the LNH Classic Vivian Net.ropolis is retired for good
(short of me coming up with some brilliant idea involving her).
Feel free to create a LNH20 Vivian Net.ropolis if you want.

I'd guess looking at the first issue 'Lava Lamp' would be correct as
would Retcon RACCoon.
