Yeah, kind of...

I'm sticking with a list of alien races I came up with for Superhuman 
World.  Some of those could pass for human if you don't look too 
closely.  The rest are "Greens", Saurians, and Tripods.  Of these, I 
think the Greens fit best in 1950s comics.  And they make nice backstory 
for Powernaut 1992, as we'll find out if I ever make it past 1955, 1962, 
1968, 1976, 1979, 1985, and 1986.

Turns out I'm an anally-fixated oedipal paranoid with 
south-of-the-border schizophrenic delusions...  But never mind, I've 
found me the ideal job.  I'm going to run for President!
