     Tremblay Bros directly came up with the premise for this script,
though I doubt they did any of the actual writing. I thought the
character bits were outstanding in this, and that opening sequence with
the "Obstacle Course" essentially defines for me what sets this apart
from similar ac/adv efforts - you have actual 'Kat characters - not just
the X-Men in Fur-suits. In terms of ac/adv writing, that opening scene
was _very_ expensive in terms of time diverted from conflict setup, and
was only really in there so we could see T-Bone likewise save Razor in
the last scenes - all heavy character stuff that made this just about my
favourite ep (top three, anyway) and very unusual in light of the
two-dimensional relationships in the various Marvel-clones out there.
