SW10/WWW/PRECOG: Update (Re: Powernaut Coming Attractions)

In the short term, I can now announce... The world needs Power Stars 
1945, now more than ever.  Especially with that 2006 reality shift that 
just went down.

In the long term, Powernaut Comics still faces the options from that old 
Coming Attractions post.  I now lean toward Power School 2013, Battle 
Chess.  On that note...

The Power School 2013 series will be a classic confrontation between 
junior Powernauts and the Legion of Net.Heroes... on a sports field!  I 
have yet to identify the Power School team, but I'm working on it. 
You'll probably see all the physical characters from Power School 2012.

So... Can the Legion of Net.Heroes volunteer ten characters (eight 
players, two captains) to take on the Power School?  Failing that, may I 
just take junior versions of any "Fair for Use" character?  Just as soon 
as the Wiki comes up again...  8{O>

I recall having this conversation before, but I can't find the specifics 
online.  Still, I'm pretty sure a female Kid Enthusiastic will show up 
as the Legion of Net.ropolis High School team captain.  8{D>

Go Legion!  Go Dynamos!
