    Like Takeshi's Castle but with real lava, blades not boffers, and actually dangerous minions instead of comically inept guys in sumo suits (this last one might still hold true)?

    464) The heroes' biggest fan has been following them, even into dangerous situations. Can the heroes keep their biggest fan from getting hurt?

    466: An Evil corporation of Evilness has managed to access the dream plane, and are adjusting peoples dreams to get them to "Dream" of owning there products/using there services. The hero's must stop this.


    Optional Plot Twists.

    1: There not actually malicious, on the grounds they, legitimately, are just so incompetent that they don't know there doing it!

    2: They aren't doing it, some government bureaucrat is paying a few freelancers do it for the corporation so that he can justify an agency to police for this sort of behavior in the future after the hero's mop it up, with the intent of using it as a back door way to get government sanctioned mind control.

    3: The Corporation isn't doing it, an actual super villain is using them as a convenient cover so that by the time the hero's figure out what's really up if the plan has failed they can be long gone before the hero's can do anything about it.

    I didn't pay much attention to that particular show, It just felt Sub Par after the 2 previous things Hearttman had given us.



    Still, actually, the idea is amusing, and it can either just be goofy "Yes, this Robit that is small enough to be taken out by a child stepping on it is the perfect weapon! What do you mean were loosing badly?!" or a bit more serious "Yeah, you laugh, wait till all the super hero's are being black mailed with there names and addresses and what schools there kids go too and pics of them, or major government official's with all there dirty laundry. No one notices those damn toys, and if you can make them robots, you can fit cameras and microphones and transmitters into them.".

    Actually, I got the idea for 470 from the Kim Possible: So The Drama movie.

    471) There is an ice sculpture contest in the city. But things take an interesting turn when the ice sculptures suddenly come to life! Can the heroes stop the sculptures from doing too many damage and figure out what is going on?

    472) One of santa's elves has been very naughty, to the point where he is holding Santa Claus, all the other elves, and Santa's reindeer as his prisoners! Can the heroes battle their way past the evil elf's army of his creations, avoid his traps, free the prisoners, and stop the evil elf in time to save Christmas?

    476.) Dr.Juvenile is committing a series of crimes relating to donkeys, primarily as an excuse to constantly use the word "ass" (compare Batman issue #66, "The Joker's Comedy of Errors" in which the Joker tricks people into making mistakes as part of a scheme to provide himself with excuses to use the word "boner")

    486) The world has been introduced to a new group of villains!

    Believer!: Capable to doing anything, even in defiance of the laws of physics! Just so long as no one points out that logically this should not work.

    Law!: A reverse to Believer, capable of causing any awful thing, no matter how statistically unlikely to the point of being essentially impossible it is, simply by pointing out that there is even the most sub atomically small chance of it happening.

    Hammerstein!: Capable of receiving random and increased power usage from the implementation of music. Also capable of subjecting others to a form of compulsion to participate to song and dance numbers, which can be manipulated to favor Hammerstein by the end.



    Can the hero's defeat these new meta's?!


    Bonus points if they figure out there basically fighting a bunch of Loony Toons gags made manifest.

    487) A superhero who was dead has suddenly come back from the dead as a supervillain! Can the heroes help the former hero return to fighting for good, or will they have to fight him?

    488) A supervillain has absorbed his archenemy. Not only is the hero trapped inside the supervillain, but the villain can also wield his archenemy's superpowers! Can the heroes defeat the villain and free the superhero trapped inside?

    Edit: 489) The heroes are framed for a crime they did not commit, and they're being pursued by a team of superpowered cops. But secretly the crime was actually committed by one of the superpowered cops. Can the heroes prove their innocence and bring justice to the real culprit?

    493) Everyone wakes up one morning to discover the loser of the last Presidential election is in the White House, with all the documentation and such acting as if (s)he'd won and been implementing policy since said election. As the real winner launches a campaign to get his/her office reinstated, the pretender and Cabinet ousted, etc., can the heroes discover the reality-altering device that caused this? Can they discover that it's really a memory-altering device that caused everybody's memories of the time since the last election to be overwritten with a false memory that the one trying to "take back" the White House actually DID lose, after all, and that's why all the evidence points to retroactive changes making the (wo)man in the White House seem to be the one who lost?

    497.) Plot twist to 496. There actually here to warn us, it's just taking them abit to get a handle on human linguistics while humans, understandably, are freaking out thinking an AI apocalypse is about to happen and trying to shoot them to prevent it.

    498.) There also here to warn us of the planet annihilating cosmic empire and/or Lovecraftian Horror and/or conquering tyrant that took there world from them and is now coming to earth.

    499.) An band of knights led by a wizard have been wandering the streets and attacking trains and subways, believing them to be monsters, and hunting for a dragon. They were summoned out of a board game by a kid who stumbled on a spellbook. Soon enough, the kid starts releasing monsters, and then the aforementioned dragon! Can the heroes prevent disaster, or will this book spell their doom?

    500.) A crazy villain has been turning gargoyles and statues into real monsters! The villain is an old school architect, and plans to tear down several new buildings that they hate. Can the heroes overcome this bad guy, or will they win by a landslide?

    501.) A failed director kidnaps several actors and forces them to perform in their movie. They are all wired with bombs (and so is the film lot, and indeed the whole city block!), and the director has the trigger! If the movie doesn't go as planned, they may detonate the bombs. Can the heroes bring the villain down, or will this movie be a real blockbuster?
