Well, unless the Ultimate Ninja is actually prancing around in a cape -- I don't
think he would feel anything.

I guess this is foreshadowing for the changes in Hungry, Hungry Sabertooths! #6?

Still since his power is tied to the actual desk that the Ultimate Ninja uses -- not
sure why that change would effect him?

But since I'll probably never write another story with these guys -- I suppose I don't
care if they lose their powers forever.  :)

*GASP!*  But I suppose this choice makes since.  Hmm.  And will we find out that this
in fact Bad Judgment Boy Red who's running against Bad Judgment Boy Blue who while
will also be a terrible president, but we have to vote for because Bad Judgment Boy
Red is really, really terrible?

Anyway, overall good ending for this.
