     I think we have "coincidence" here, because "Ann Gora" is actually a
fairly obvious cat-pun, and "Manx" is famous because of the rather odd
aspect of the cat-breed; they don't have tails! I'll put this on my
"ask" list for Lance and the Tremblays.

(PS, I _really_ liked the old "Avengers" series - more with Emma Peel
 than Tara King though...)
