  1. In The Stalk, Jack lives at the bottom of a "space elevator made of living metal". Her job is to feed it. Then one day she is the latest person picked to go up the elevator and be interviewed by the wealthy owners of the project. It's an honor she'd as soon decline since those picked seem to end up with a compulsion to kill themselves. This is the second in a series, with the first one having been a Cinderella retelling, where the prince's "party" takes the form of a flight simulator test (essentially a video game) to qualify for fighter pilot status. This horrific take on Jack and the Bean

  3. This guy: The protagonist of Trash of the Count's Family. He doesn't really deserve it. He's a nice enough fellow. But he was tragically born with the most punchable face in the world.
  4. More than 200 liens since the 1980s that were filed by contractors and workers who said they were stiffed. Records released by casino regulators in 1990 that show 253 subcontractors on a single project were not paid in full or on time. Twenty-four Fair Labor Act violations by the Trump Plaza casino and Trump Mortgage for failure to pay minimum wage or overtime. The cases were resolved with an agreement to pay back wages.

    Space Cops

    In 1959, DC introduced the Green Lantern Corps, a superpowered interstellar police agency. Later we learned they were successors to a robot police force known as the Manhunts and Marvel brought in first the Accuser Corps and then the Nova Corps. Of course DC's Green Lanterns owe a largely unacknowledged debt to Doc Smith's Lensmen who also provided inspiration for the Jedi Order. I know there's got to be a Champions universe pastiche of the Lanterns, so what is it and what's their equivalent of the rings?
  6. Rescuing fifty babies that give superpowers to the people holding them.
  7. "Let's open the schools," the premier of Alberta said. "It'll be fine..."
  8. Yes. Domino's Pizza in Japan really has a tsundere pizza although this is a fake advertisement for it.
  9. I was afraid to raise my eyelids, but looked out and saw perfectly under the lashes. The girl went on her knees, and bent over me, simply gloating. There was a deliberate voluptuousness which was both thrilling and repulsive, and as she arched her neck she actually licked her lips like an animal, till I could see in the moonlight the moisture shining on the scarlet lips and on the red tongue as it lapped the white sharp teeth. Lower and lower went her head as the lips went below the range of my mouth and chin and seemed about to fasten on my throat. Then she paused, and I could hear the churni

  11. Thank you very much for your assistance. Hera is excellent for Olympia. Tjack is right in that Vajra is actually too clever. And yes, Valkyrian seems to fit for Amazonia. I think for Enigma 7 just "Mysterious" is the way to go with credit to Steriaca. Precious works for this guy (I mean the guy's writing borderline superhero porn), so Red Rage it is. ' And yeah Carnival or perhaps Carnivale works for Scarborough. Still wavering over the choice between Thorn and Barbed Wire. WCW, your suggestions are
  12. Finally had a official outbreak in my vicinity just before Halloween. The mask mandate went into effect in the nearby town. Technically not in my bedroom community 20 minutes away. Fortunately the library's handing out free masks. Unfortunately I go blind if I wear one at at current temperatures so now I have to walk with my glasses off.
  13. This is a strange request but, I have a team of superheroes who consist of 6 women and one man. The team's great embarrassment is that a novel obviously based on them portrays the ladies as his harem. They aren't. Two of them are lesbians, one is apparently asexual (although it's hard to tell since she only communicates through nods, headshakes and shrugs), one is happily married to a civilian and the other two are his mother and sister. The novel started out as fanfic and was then rewritten to be lawyer-friendly. Now the "real" heroes are respectively: Olympia:
  14. I met a large black man who was wearing invisible clown makeup. His right hand was gone, replaced with a metal sphere festooned with long needles.
  15. Beals was born and raised in Chicago, Illinois's South Side,[2] the daughter of Jeanne (née Anderson), an elementary school teacher, and Alfred Beals, who owned grocery stores.[3][4] Beals' father was African-American, and her mother is Irish-American.[5] She has two brothers, Bobby and Gregory.[6] Her father died when Beals was 9 years old,[7] and her mother married Edward Cohen in 1981.[8] Beals says her bi-racial heritage affected her... she "always lived sort of on the outside", with an idea "of being the other in society
