That is intentional, but anomalous for 1988. The Hyper-Piper is based
on Movie Loki. Auge von Shaitan is the stand-in for 1988 Comics Loki.
And if I'd really wanted him to look like *that* Loki, he would have had
to borrow the Horns of Satan.

*Especially* Steve, as of 1988. And Iron Man is too paranoid, even in
modern movie versions. Besides, Tony Stark is not all that well-known
for hanging out with lowly tech workers. He still seems to generate
lots of villains with grudges about that.
I've tried another team-up with him and Wyatt and the entire Avengers
(http://www.eilertech.com/stories/me2001.htm#conquerorday). But we may
rule out seeing anything like that in Powernaut Comics. Yeah, I could
bring in a substitute for Kang the Conqueror, but 2001 was a Year
Without a Powernaut.
