You mean I get to use other people’s copyrighted characters in an adventure of my own sick devising, all the while imitating the man who singlehandedly brought literary respectability (however briefly) to American comics? JOY!

This is my “Summer 2001” squad:

The first nefarious plot they would stop would be the conspiracy by the Teletubbies and David Manning to enslave the minds of American youth with corporate crap, defended by the high-powered Ally McBeal. I won’t tell you exactly how the summer squad wins, but it involves pentacles, shotguns, and BOOTY.
