It's another week with no Powernaut, but the villains and their pawns 
are getting themselves into an interesting situation as Powernaut 1988

Was Me

I can finally admit this incident.  I kept a diary through the whole 
thing.  But no one would believe how it all ended.  So back then, I 
published it as comic-book fan fiction. 

In 1988, I was young and idealistic.  And I still had facial hair, 
though it was never impressive.  My scalp hair was nice and long, but I 
shaved it for this occasion.

I read Iron Man comics back then.  He'd gone on a quest to neutralize 
some stolen tech of his, even into Russia.  And then I found out, the 
Russians had hacked some secrets of the MX Missile - secrets *I'd* 
worked on.  By the standards of Iron Man comics, my next action was 
obvious... I *had* to invade Russia myself!

I don't go places to kill people, though.  I brought tactical goggles, 
pepper spray, and flashbang and knockout gas grenades.  I wore body 
armor, of course.  I carried a bunch of ziptie restraints.  And back 
then, I was pretty good at fighting with a big stick.

I'd heard of a credible way to shut down all their new missiles from one 
missile silo.  So I snuck into Russia with an ultralight aircraft.  I 
had an extraction plan.  (I figured Greenpeace would pick me up.)  But I 
got stuck.  Fortunately, I suppose, my career full of weirdness started 

This was decades ago.  I used to remember it differently.  For starters, 
Loki summoned me then...  With all the reality shifts I've been through, 
I'm not surprised some things are different now.  But many things are 
still much the same... for instance, the fact that I *got* extracted 
from Kamchatka.
