Corporation Smasher was on patrol. Her trainee, Dragon Corporation
Smasher, had been sent on furlough by the Corporations.

Then a male figure (with long hair, wearing a wide-brimmed hat) burst in
through a universal interface. "Greetings! I suppose you can call me
Alt-Corporation Smasher!"

"ehh, okay, what are you here to smash?"

"I don't have to smash anything! I'm only here to watch!"

"Watch what?"

"The Absolute Telephone Titan corp is about to die. Its business model
has always been to consume other companies. This worked well for it,
until it started consuming companies which had nothing to do with
telephones. It got indigestion, and vomited them out."

"So?'

Alt-Corporation Smasher smirked. "Now it feeds upon itself."

"Eww! What happens then?"

"Probably it gets eaten. I think by MacroSoft."

"Okaay..." Corporation Smasher relaxed. "That's just what corporations
do."

"Even on this scale?

"Absolutely."

"How shall you smash a corporation *that big*??"

"With *one blow*!"

"...Okaay!" Alt-Corporation Smasher gave two thumbs up. "I see this
universe is in good hands!"

Then he of course disappeared. But Corporation Smasher remained on her
mission.

So, I should clarify, this wasn't meant as a cascade or a free add-on story;
it's part of a larger narrative I'm writing myself. I apologize for not making
this clearer. That said, this issue is pretty cool, and I'm gonna read thru and
comment on it; I'm just probably not going to include it in my later stuff.

I'm sorry, did I violate boundary on Corporation Smasher? I apologize.
But I did think LNH*20* was shared-universe.

Anyway, thanks. And you're right about me and self-inserts and
corporations.

It's a shared universe, totally, but individual series aren't necessarily shared.
