... The Powernaut's *what* is arriving?  There might be some 
misdirection going on.  Evil Mayor Anvernacht enters the story, as 
Powernaut 2006 continues!



Bonus Section: Commentary from Wyatt Ferguson! Meanwhile, Plan B

Karl didn't really need the Powernaut to *do* anything at Prison Camp 
Iowa.  He figured, just *being* there would be enough to shake things up.

When the Powernaut decided to help me watch Ellipsis instead, Karl came 
up with Plan B: Send some *other* hero whom Anvernacht hates. 
Fortunately there's no shortage of those.  Many were in Anvernacht's 
prison... but Leo was outside!  He'd been with us in Iraq.  And he had 
some history with Anvernacht, almost as much as Ellipsis himself.  So he 
was *eager* to dress up as the Powernaut, just to psyche Anvernacht!

It was *not* required that the guy in the Powernaut costume actually 
have Powernaut powers.  The guy who *did*, just had to be brave enough 
to bluff an evil mayor, and (ideally) competent enough to defend himself 
if things went wrong.  Basically (in pop culture terms), Karl got 
Wolverine (missing powers, yet still with some claws) to dress up as 

It took some time to arrange this.  Meanwhile, the Powernaut signed back 
on for Plan A.  But Karl and Leo saw no reason to abandon Plan B.  So, 
the Powernaut got a diversion in support of his own mission!
