Hmm.  This is kind of an interesting surprise ending.  But it kind of 
fell flat.  People say, every story needs conflict.

How well does Louis expect Fearless Leader to control his Legion, so as 
to make them take the interview?  I'll admit, if he's a veteran newsman 
who's studied the Legion, the answer might well be "Not at all".

How well does Flashback control her power?  I'll admit, it must work 
best with a willing subject.  But still, she doesn't just take what 
people volunteer, she goes mining.

So from a story point of view, perhaps we need Lycanthropy Lass (or 
whatever) to reveal her memories, then say, "I never thought you'd show 
the world *that*!"

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!
