     Nope, created as I typed the first lines of the story.  But he's a
pretty clearly defined team archetype, the sometimes troublesome hothead
(i.e. Jason of G-Force, Human Torch).  In fact, I found myself working them
over into the original Avengers cast to some extent: The Warden is Iron Man,
Mod-I the obvious Thor, Trollsaurus is surly Hulk, and Blackcel is sort of
Wasp-like but with elements of Black Widow and Scarlet Witch.  Trading in
archetypes (or ectypes) does make characterization faster.

     Links to streaming video popping up all over the place.  Not push style
spam, but it would show up as an option in lists of media files, unbidden.
And anyone looking for regular system information (i.e. admins) would see it
as a media file rather than an actual attack/defense.

     Dave Van Domelen, not too worried about the technical specifics, just
handwaving that it looks like a show rather than reality.
