Another part of is is, multiple Powernauts.  This one's only been around 
since 2005.  No one's quite sure of his relationship to other 
Powernauts, who are themselves poorly documented in the normal 
continuity.  But you may learn more about them soon, even sooner than 
you think.

Did it sound like Ka-Itty-Shwing?  If so, I heard it too.  8{D>

... Long story, and I've never told most of the Leo parts.  Mostly I 
just made Leo a target for the same kind of weirdness Spider-Man gets in 
the Marvel Universe.

It is often my custom to install a random guest star in my stories. 
Doctor Lithium got in because of a plot challenge at the last moment. 
Before that I rolled dice to find a guest star for Leo's slot.  I think 
I could have made the dice's choice work.  But, never mind.  Leo the 
Pirate Vampire King is one of my storyline's senior characters, and much 
more fun than everyone else I could think of.
