A group for the friendly and insightful discussions of an expanded version of the Wold Newton Universe concept as delineated by the fine work of Win Scott Eckert and Dennis E. Power & Dr. Pete Coogan that allows for the existence of a limited number of super-heroes who strictly follow the rules of this universe as formulated by Win and Dennis, along with other characters from across the fulcrum of fiction, such as TV series like cop shows, medical dramas, Westerns, sitcoms, and others; animated shows that tie into the above; movies in a variety of genres, including the above; video games; TV commercials and other adverts; songs; role-playing games (RPGs); trading card sets; folk tales; pop culture references; and various other mediums. This work, which will coincide with a related website, will be primarily supplementary to the work of Win, Dennis, & Pete, and will not be outright contradictory in most cases, but always with the hope of reconciling any differences. Part of this project will be to continue and sometimes update/modify the terrific work on wolding super-heroes that Dennis and Pete composed years ago on The Secret History of the Wold Newton Universe website, using the existent work there as the basic framework, albeit not slavishly.
