gee, Andrew, I have to wonder if you ever enjoyed the Powernaut with an 
explanation like that...  JUST KIDDING!  I like it!  But I prefer to 
think the later writers considered P69 to be a cult classic and slowly 
reintroduced its characters to later comics, like practically every 
reboot ever.  And I like to think Jim Starlin was reading too, because 
those things which Li'l Wyatt wears in P69 are suspiciously like 
Infinity Gems.  8{D>

I considered blaming it on reality shifts.  But in SW10 where Powernaut 
comics were published, I can't think of any reality shifts between 1969 
and 1999 (the Hyper-Pocalypse).  In a very real sense, 1999 already puts 
things together for my universe; I've already put a Hyper-Pocalypse hook 
there.  http://www.eilertech.com/stories/me1999.htm

And, many thanks for giving me some thoughts on the process.  <3

Works for me.
