Gentlemen, 2008 was a banner year for the Legion of Evil. Our operatives scowled, glared, sneered, grimaced, glowered, frowned, harrumphed upon and generally disapproved of more things than at any time in the storied history of our secret fraternity.

… and now the team is getting final instructions from Coach Zeke "The Disapprover" Standhope …
… and so, as Head Cheerleader Alyssa "Sender-Inner" B. joins her team on the field, we’re ready now for the coin toss, sponsored by Chevron and Microsoft. But first, these messages …
