Lady Sleek kept the peace in Utopia. She bided her time, watching the stars through sunglasses, until the vibes of a dissonance rippled ultrasonically upwards to her perch at the peak of the metropolis. At the slightest cue she curved up and over the lookout's railing, swooping down faster than Superman could have, because of being so sleek. She'd land on her feet and rip off her glasses, staring her karma into the contrary eyes of the person who'd strayed. There'd be calm smiles, relieved sighs and brotherly-sisterly hugs all around. And then she'd return to her platform high over it all, focusing her nirvana eyes upward on the brightest star on the dark carpet of night, causing peace to reign briefly in the far off worlds of elsewhere.

I like that.
I wouldn't mind having Lady Sleek watching over my world, my life... keeping it all peaceful and in harmony. I could really use her sometimes.

I love to read your stories. It's a great idea for a blog. It's been fun battling with you.

( PSST, Joey says you should go down in the 3rd round. Don't make joey angry.)

Wow! I came up with a pacifist superhero! I didn't realize that. Underdog was my favorite! Never heard of Powerman or Iron Fist. They're either before or after my time. Ultraman was cool.

Jamie: Thanks for your nice feedback about the story. I'm never sure if people will like a particular story, so it makes me happy that you do.

Denotsko: That BoB is something else. Usually I win during the hours that everyone in America is still sleeping. Once they wake up I start losing.

M.P. Anyplace with pretty girls is utopia enough for me ;-)

Everyone: Once again, today's story will be late. Sorry for that.
