A mysterious super-speeder and his anti-heroic allies get their marching 
order, as the Reality House 2008 series continues once again toward 
Christmas in Paris.



Bonus Section: Commentary from Wyatt Ferguson! The Villain Roster

I have my suspicions on who the master villain is. But he's still in 
hiding, so I can't be really sure. We know about the minions, though. 
This must be the point in the strip where you've seen them all (unless 
the master villain has something else to reveal). And they all had 
targets, though the Power School's operational plan complicated things.

*  Imperilus. American brawler with mid-to-high level superhuman 
strength, plus lots of practical experience. Assigned to take on the 
Powernaut. And he did so, happily.

*  Hard Falcon. American mercenary with unprecedented durability; he can 
regenerate himself from any of his own cells. Unlike some people with 
similar power, though, he tries not to need it that much. Assigned to 
take on Lauren Ferguson. And he did so, happily.

*  Free Sky. Russian mercenary with personal flight gear originally 
developed by his government. Assigned to take on Vnesa Stalker. He 
didn't much like taking on a vampire, though.

*  Chas Speed. American rogue with super-speed, given by the Ministry of 
Speed (a group of super-speedsters with access to some kind of speed 
force). Assigned to take on Capture, but instead served as scout and 

*  Toledoth Torpedoth. Israelite warrior from the time of Joshua, 
transplanted to the modern age alongside tens of thousands of his 
comrades. Assigned and fated to confront the Toledo Torpedo, to 
determine who has the best Shadow Warrior powers. And he did that happily.

*  Boom Chick. British girl who can go Boom, and withstand any shock. 
Assigned to take on Zorch. So to speak. She wasn't much for combat 
skill, but that's not what she was there for. And she did so happily.

*  Patriotic Homeland of France. The Patriotic Homeland Corps lets one 
representative in from each nation where someone wants to volunteer. 
These are not required to have superhuman powers, though larger nations 
such as France can at least find someone with low-level superhuman 
strength. He got assigned by his Corps to patrol the area of this 
incident that night. He was alerted to the possibility of an American 
girl who might need France's protection that night. So he was expected 
to take on Intensity - and it happened.

The soldiers presented a pathetic but inspiring spectacle. The
hospitals were crowded with sick and wounded; the walls were
gradually crumbling under incessant shell fire, yet that garrison
of heroes remained undaunted.

It was as Buck said, "just as if they had been Americans."
