As the details of the Government crackdown on Heroes becomes known, the 
Powernaut gets his mission statement... Powernaut 2006 continues!



Bonus Section:  Commentary from Wyatt Ferguson!  Evil Mayor Anvernacht

I see Russell Anvernacht figures into this story, and it's up to me to 
provide his history beyond "You saw him once".

*    Anvernacht was a Dutch businessman, and was rumored to be the 
secret identity of the armored terrorist Domesday.  Domesday was 
actually the first enemy of Ellipsis and the Balance.  (ref: 
http://www.eilertech.com/stories/1988/balance.rtf)  This conflict lasted 
until 2004, when Ellipsis and two of his allies finally got the 
advantage.  (ref:  http://www.eilertech.com/stories/2004/shores.htm)

*    That's where I came in...  Anvernacht wanted a time machine, and I 
had access to the one the United Nations operated.  So, he kidnapped me! 
  (ref:  http://www.eilertech.com/stories/2004/shores.htm)  That did not 
end well for him, though.  Messing with time, tends to set off reality 
shifts.  This episode was no exception.  Russell Anvernacht ended up at 
the mayor of Maquoketa, Iowa.  Evil Mayor Anvernacht!

*    I have my own grudge against Anvernacht, even aside from being 
kidnapped...  He maneuvered my friend Ted Clark into wearing some 
dangerous alien armor.  It ate his mind, and he died.  (ref: 
http://www.eilertech.com/stories/death.htm)  After the reality shift, 
Ted came back... on which more later.  But that doesn't excuse Russell 

*    Now, why was a *mayor* providing security for a Federal 
installation? Well, it seems this particular U.S. Gov was really into 
secret installations to interrogate potential threats to the U.S. Gov. 
Often it was convenient to put the installations overseas. But with 
potential superhumans, it was deemed necessary to put them in the United 
States mainland *and* centrally located. And so entered Evil Mayor 
Anvernacht in Iowa! His economically-depressed town was entirely willing 
to sign up for this. They had a conservation area, which served as a 
prison camp. They even provided a security force as best they could. 
Hey, at least they were in a Federal budget category which no one 
expected. (ref: my diary. Heh.
