UNIVERSE:  Godling

- Type:  Superhuman

- Chronicler(s):  Jochem Vandersteen

- Chronicler's Web Site:  apparently not

- Tag:  MISC

- Activity:  sporadic; one episode this year

- Relevance:  Minor; could interact with the Council, but not likely

- Threat Analysis:  Standard superhuman, as for every year.

- Critique:  Standard superhuman.  Standard menaces.  But it does 
*resolve* some issues about some superhero dragging super-criminals off 
to his private prison.

- Psychovant's Comments:  Well, at least something's *still* happening.


UNIVERSE:  Eightfold (Journey Into / Mighty Medley)

- Type:  Superhuman

- Chroniclers:  Tom and Mary Russell plus numerous guest writers

- Chronicler's Web Site:  apparently none

- Tag:  8FOLD

- Activity:  Sporadic

- Relevance:  Major; could easily interact with the Council

- Threat Analysis:  Minor (downgraded from Incredible last year).  The 
universe contains many multiverse-spanning heroes and heroines, plus 
threats which could spill over with them.  Yet these threats are quiet 
even in their own universes.  Only one episode with a princess has 
showed up since January.  (By our Rule of Continuum, we assume anything 
from a Writer which does not contradict another story, can fit with that 

- Recommendation:  Monitor.  This continuum is absorbed upon itself, and 
not a threat to other Earths at present.

- Critique:  Just one Mighty Medley (anthology of monthly stories) and 
one fairy tale about a princess.  That last was a decent tale, in 
authentic medieval tradition.

- Psychovant's Comments:  As long as they're roasting pigs and not ducks.


UNIVERSE:  Academy of Super-Heroes

- Type:  Superhuman

- Chronicler(s):  Dave van Domelen

- Chronicler's Web Site:  http://www.eyrie.org/~dvandom/ASH/

- Tag:  ASH

- Activity:  sporadic (three episodes this year)

- Relevance:  Minor.  Could interact with the Council, but not likely.

- Threat Analysis:  Medium.  Standard superhuman, mostly in years 
removed from us.  Unchanged from last year.  But they're having an 
Darkness incident.  Ultimate Darkness, of course, surrounds all 
universes and can be sensitive to what happens in any.

- Recommendation:  Continue to monitor.

- Critique:  One post was a brief episode about an ogre.  So far, the 
rest has been an impressive story of a world full of superheroes.

- Psychovant's Comments:  The quote of the year is, "It's growing.  Like 
Monaco."  Don't make me go find a universe where Monaco has growth powers.


UNIVERSE: Super Wizard From Space

- Type:  Superhuman

- Chronicler:  Wil Alambre

- Chronicler's Web Site:  http://wil.alambre.ca/racc/

- Tag:  MV (Marlo Vivo)

- Activity:  occasional short bursts

- Relevance:  Major.  Has *already* interacted with the Council, and 
continues to affect its worlds.

- Threat Analysis:  Major.  The cosmic powers of this universe *have 
finished* final confrontation.

- Recommendation:  Omniversal quarantine, for such elements as have not 
already escaped.

- Critique:  Mr. Chancellor, we apologize.  Our analysts somehow missed 
the final confrontation for several months.  It was truly cosmic. 
Stories after that will concentrate on cleanup.

- Psychovant's Comments:  Gotta work on "its" and "it's" though.  (duck 
puts on a "mortarboard" graduate hat)  This story goes Boom a lot, and 
fun to read.  So it's (it is) a shame that its grammar (the thing that 
it owns) ain't always grammatic.  (takes hat off)  Waaak.  Don't make me 
access my grammar routines again.
