The first Chapter sets the scene.  We are in a world with superpowers. 
Something that the characters view as earthshattering happens.

However, Eclipse is the lead character. We really need to get to her 
soon (with a tip of the hat to Frank Chadwick for making this point 
about MinuteGirls.) So we do.  However, Eclipse is in first person, so 
she does not think her own name very often.

> Ahhhh, the Skull's a villain, isn't he

Not really. The Lords of Eternity are really really powerful types. So 
is Morgan La Fey.  As it happens, so is Eclipse.

You have an excellent point. There are certainly choices, but 
introducing the heroine really should happen early.  Also her 
perspective on what is happening is rather different from the 
perspective in Chapter One.
