So says the Racer Girl from Hypergaard, and perhaps she does.  But 
there's more!  As we sometimes say on RACC:  with a single *tap* the 
Hyper-Children prove that it's not the size of the child in the fight 
that matters.  (thank you, Dee, Chevalier writer dude.)

I declare one Art Point for psychedelia and *four* Plot Points for Blam 
Blam Blam and the long-advertised Embarrassing Moment!  Powernaut 1969 
is past the stuff your girlfriends and co-workers might look at funny, 
and it's ramping up even more.

(S.O.S.)!    Hyper-Born #1: The Devil in White

In 1992, a young adventurer named The Devil in White appeared in New 
York City. He wielded telepathic and telekinetic powers. He interfered 
with Ellipsis, who by then was powerful enough to pose a threat to the 
U.S. Government.

In later years, the Devil in White would abandon that costume and dress 
more colorfully. He would be known as Ron Cannon, and affiliate with 
campus superhumans.

We now know The Devil in White was Matthew Smith Jr., the son of my 
colleagues Stonewater Smith and Paula Power. He was born in Hypergaard 
in 1969, though we registered his birth at Power City, Oregon late in 
that same year. His parents of course had something to do with his 
powers, but we don't know what or why.

• His father Stonewater Smith was an exemplary human being in all 
respects, but he had no superhuman genetics to contribute.

• His mother Paula Page (Paula Power) has powers of vague origin related 
to the Powernaut. Those powers may possibly breed true, but we have no 
one other than Matthew Smith Jr. to judge from. Obviously his powers 
were not like those of the Powernaut, nor like his parents.

• Hypergaard itself may have been a factor in the mutation of young 
Matthew's powers. We therefore continue to track him as one of the 
Hyper-Born of Hypergaard.
