heh, this isn't the first time I moved the story quickly.  But this is 
the first time I filled a strip with 48 character portrayals.  That's 
more fitting for, say, some (-cough-) Crisis-on-Infinite-Powernauts 
story than for Power School.  But I couldn't resist, with all those 
Powernauts around!  I'll try to keep the next Power School story more 
under control.

Usually when I move a story that quickly, I have some commentary to fill 
in the details.  I can have Pauly work on that.  I'd like to say, I just 
missed putting in the explanation...  but really, Doctor Fu pretty much 
explained it all to the same level of detail I'd developed the concept.

heh.  (breaks into Sesame Street song)  One of these things is not like 
the others!  ... What does *that* say about what's coming up for 
Power-Earth 2013?  8{D>
