Why yes I was!  I envision the Powernaut 1962 and 1966 series were not 
terribly successful, though the Powernaut Comics Company would never 
admit it.  Hence, Our Publisher decided to %$#! it and find the *next* 
trend.  There's a text feature in here somewhere...  soon!

Well, I *was* thinking heavily of Wonder Wart-Hog.  I don't recall that 
he had *explicit* drug references, but Wonder Wart-Hog was downright 
anti-heroic at times.  Still, the Powernaut has *yet* to come up with 
anything quite as awesome as the Wart-Hog Sky Dance, in which Our Hero 
spells his name vertically in the air while smashing his enemies.  The 
"Pow! Er! Naut!" maneuver is the closest I've come so far.
