You know how Captain America movies brought back a story from ten years 
ago, about Heroes vs. Heroes vs. Government?  I can do that too... 
because I wrote a story like that back then, and now I can publish it in 
other media just like Marvel did.  Powernaut 2006 is on!


Of course, *my* story may have some surprise elements, like...  which 
Government?  But we'll build up to that...


Bonus Section:  Commentary from Wyatt Ferguson!  We Join 2006 Already in 

As you can see, the Powernaut started out 2006 with me.  Or vice versa. 
So let's see if I can catch you up...

-    It started when the Occulator Compuplex (the alien hive-mind on 
Earth, along with some Earth mages) thought it should make a peace 
treaty with the legitimate government of Earth.  But their idea of 
legitimacy is, well, alien.  So they went looking for descendants of the 
Tsars of Russia.

-    Their search led them to Wisconsin.  My brother Calvin is a US 
Government agent, and he was keeping track of the various rednecks and 
neo-Tsarists the aliens were dealing with.  I got sucked in alongside him.

-    But the deejay formerly known as Ellipsis was stalking the aliens 
too.  One night he struck, in an attempt to drive the Occulator 
Compuplex from Earth.  The Powernaut got drawn into that confrontation, 
as did the dancers Ellipsis works with now.

-    By the time it all was over, everyone was awfully annoyed at 
Ellipsis.  The Powernaut didn't exactly win that one, but it surely was 
fun to watch.

-    Afterward, my brother and I got called to check whether my mom was 
safe after a bombing in her neighborhood.  The Powernaut was kind enough 
to come along in case we needed some muscle.  So after that, I went with 
the Powernaut to Karl's office in case they needed some explaining of stuff.

Of course, you could go read my journal yourself 
(http://www.eilertech.com/stories/2006/go_home.htm).  Or you can read 
the dancers' account (http://www.eilertech.com/stories/2006/bus.htm). 
But Powernaut Comics decided not to get too deep into describing that 
particular adventure.  Oh well, the journal can't make the big time 
*all* the time.
