@jordama: I know. Your's was the inspiration for mine! I'm just an obsessive stickler for layout and formatting so I had to create my own :)

I'd like to add that Ernst has had a few cameo appearances on Utopia, and Whedons run on Astonishing showed that she's not Cassandra Nova.

I just realised that Surge is the only one of those characters I like.

@RJMooreII: Surge is probably the only one I don't like haha.
