The Powernaut of the 1990s takes the stage to confront the return of the 
Doom Bear!  But other heroes of the '90s might steal the show as they go 
into action!  Beating on a cute bear is therapeutic, and the heroes of 
the '90s took lots of therapy.

History of Doom Bear Incursions

I have Christine as a source for what she knows. Let's get to it.

*  1984 - 1985. (http://www.eilertech.com/stories/powernaut/1984.htm) 
The Doom Bear erupted onto our world a few times then, but briefly went 
away.  There are lots of stories of toy heroes involved, but that seems 
like fandom to me.

*  1989.  (http://www.eilertech.com/stories/powernaut/1989.htm)  The 
Doom Bear raided our world again, in Hollywood, California.  He focused 
on the Powernaut, as part of his scheme to dominate his world and our 
own.  He took totems (signatures) of Christine Lassiter and the 
Powernaut, so as to dominate them in future.

*  1991.  (http://www.eilertech.com/stories/1988/balance8.rtf) 
Published in what seems like a college diary, by who knows whom, maybe 
Ellipsis himself...  The Doom Bear raided our world again. He'd followed 
Christine Lassiter, in a bar where she was singing, but found Stephen 
Wolcott (the potentialy-superhuman Ellipsis) in the venue also.  Stephen 
had gotten Christine's autograph (thanks to his friend Captain Gonzo). 
The Doom Bear swiped this as a totem to use in place of the Powernaut's 
autograph, so as to dominate Ellipsis in future.  (This was the famous 
"Fire and Ice" incident.)  There was considerable mayhem afterward, 
including Ellipsis and Captain Gonzo and their superhero team The 
Balance vs. dominated Happy Bears, but the Doom Bear escaped with his 
new artifact of dominance.

After that, Ellipsis gained his full powers, got the attention of the 
U.S. Gov, and wound up on late-night TV to show his case.  Christine 
Lassiter was there also...  And so it happened.
