I believe I remember that one.  Ami as Spiderwoman and Sailor Mercury
with a split personality of some kind, right?

Well, wouldn't be much point in restraining him in the first place

"a meter wide"

Well, _applied_ genetics, I suppose.

Also, "it" there doesn't need to be capitalized.

Hmm.  Future She-Hulk, perchance?

Although she's already been fused with a Marvel character.

Mexican and Japanese should be capitalized.

Hmm.  Thus far it's much heavier on the Marvel side of things than the
Sailor Moon side, but it's an intriguing enough start.  Other than those
minor corrections and comments, I don't have much else to say.

Well, other than that I had a hard time mentally picturing original-type
Nick Fury instead of Ultimate Samuel L. Fury, but that's pretty much my
own fault. :)
