Oh, my.  Happy Bears (and their villain) actually were a concept I had 
in 1984.  Now they're likely to take over Free Powernaut Comic Day 2016.


I actually did conceive of the Doom Bear in 1984, when Care Bears and 
the like were in fashion.  I added Happy Bears as I put the Doom Bear in 
the first adventures of Ellipsis.  When I put Ellipsis in a gaming 
campaign, the Doom Bear was an early opponent - and these were '90s 
heroes, so they tested the powers of Happy Bears also.  When I needed 
guest stars for Powernaut 1985, Happy Bears were among them.  (I'd 
actually planned "Li'l Trolls", until I remembered Happy Bears ever 
existed.)  When I was challenged to write the Manly-Man 1984 comic, 
Happy Bears were a natural sequel.  To explain what Happy Bears do for 
excitement, I practically *had* to mention the Doom Bear. So, the Doom 
Bear has come a long way to appear in a 1984 comic at last.  So, he has 
some Wiki support...
