Challenge #8

The challenge has been cast. The gauntlet thrown down. Many have been called, few have answered. On the planet Hacknor... On Fire Island D, brave contestants will compete. Who will falter? Who will thrive? Who will be

Well Gladiators, since all the women are now gone (with the exception of Sylar, I guess) you can all relax now. There you go, let your bellies hang out. Go ahead and burp while you’re at it, too. You know you want to.

Unfortunately, you won’t have time to relax any more, J’onn Sinew Nu the Vice President of Marketing and Talent Coordination for the Intergalactic Gladiator Entertainment (formerly the Intergalactic Gladiator Federation until we lost that space lawsuit, thank you very much space hippies) wants to meet with each of you.

During your meeting, Sinew Nu will very likely want to discuss your persona with you. Of course, every Intergalactic Gladiator has a persona, the qualities and characteristics he or she brings to the ring. Billions upon billions of fans want to see a good gladiator match and as everyone knows, a good character carries that competition as well as good work rate.

Possibly the only hitch to your little meeting that I want to warn you about is that Sinew Nu is pretty one dimensional himself, he’s smart and a shrewd businessman but he only cares about the money he’s going to generate. He’s never actually been to Earth either, so he thinks it’s inhabited by cavemen or something. Don’t let him turn you into a caveman Gladiator, it’s been tried before and it never works!

The other thing Sinew Nu is going to want to talk to you about is the merchandising. His company Sinewco Industries handles all the merchandising for the IGE. The more popular you are, the more your merchandise will sell of course. Don’t worry you’ll get a percentage of the profits. It’s all in the contract.

Any questions? Nope?

OK, who’s first?

Last Gladiator Standing III was brought to you today by the Watchpeanuts.
