1. HappyMan -- who is he?
====================================================


1.1 Who is HappyMan?
--------------------

HappyMan is the protagonist of the HappyMan MetaComic. In most aspects he is
completely average.


1.2 Where does HappyMan live?
-----------------------------

HappyMan lives in a MetaVerse very much like our own world. However,
there are some important differences.


1.3 What does HappyMan do for a living?
---------------------------------------

HappyMan is a contract programmer, writing code and designing software
for a wide variety of corporations. Currently he is part of the 
UltraMonkey V/R development group at GiantMedia. None of HappyMan's
programs have ever worked. He has also dabbled in comic book art, 
being the original creator of UltraMonkey.


1.4 If is name is HappyMan, why doesn't he appear to be very happy?
-------------------------------------------------------------------

Many people wonder why HappyMan appears to be, at best, rather 
ambivalent.  It may be due to some EarlyChildHood trauma. There is 
also speculation that he may suffer from a rare genetic defect.


1.5 What kind of computer does HappyMan have?
---------------------------------------------

HappyMan has a generic 486. While dedicated to continued development 
of the UltraMonkey PowerOpenDesktop, he has not yet been able to
deliver a working prototype...his current operating system is OS/2
Warp.


1.6 Why doesn't HappyMan have a neck?
-------------------------------------

He has a VirtualNeck.


1.7 Is HappyMan related to the Rain Man or Forrest Gump?
--------------------------------------------------------

No.


2. Friends of HappyMan
========================================================


2.1 Who/What is UltraMonkey?
----------------------------

UltraMonkey is a comic character created by HappyMan. He is also a 
"real" monkey in the MetaComic MetaVerse occupied by HappyMan and the
other HappyCharacters.


2.11 Where does UltraMonkey come from?
--------------------------------------

His GiantMedia press release claims he was born in Greece and raised 
in Japan, at Akasaka Palace. However, UltraMonkey 'comes from' an
infinite number of time/space locations.


2.12 Is he a monkey, a man, a machine, or some hideous combination thereof?
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

UltraMonkey used to be a normal monkey. But repeated trips through
the 'LiveLink' have resulted in 'SuperEvolution', placing him at a 
much higher point on the food chain. He has aqquired both man-like and
machine-like characteristics.


2.13 Why does UltraMonkey seem to advocate BOTH OS/2 Warp and GiantMedia95?!!
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

In his lucid moments, UltraMonkey advocates Warp. However, his 
TeamBlackHelicopter brain 'emplant' installed by GiantMedia enables them to 
seize control of his mind at any time!


2.2 Who is NullMonkey?
----------------------

NullMonkey is UltraMonkey's brother. His diminished mental capacity is the
result of early, failed LiveLink tests carried out by GiantMedia.
But he does have certain limited UltraPowers. He is an Amiga advocate.


2.3 Who is Molly?
-----------------

Molly is any or all of the following:
	a. HappyMan's lawyer and business agent
	b. his girlfriend
	c. unknown to HappyMan, his long-lost half-sister
	d. a special 'monitor' employed by GiantMedia and TeamBlackHelicopter


3. The World of HappyMan
==========================================================


3.1 Is HappyMan's world the same as our world?
----------------------------------------------

There are many similarities. The HappyMan MetaVerse is a simplified and
concentrated version of our "reality".


3.2 Why are other people referred to by first name and number?
--------------------------------------------------------------

This straightforward naming scheme seemed suitable for HappyMan's world.


3.3 Is this the NewWorldOrder we here so much about?
----------------------------------------------------

Possibly. HappyMan v1.x refers to many current trends and issues, but projects
them out along the HappyAxis.


3.4 What is a 'chuffer'?
------------------------

A 'chuffer' is a person who, for cheap thrills, inhales harmful household
products. 'Chuffers' are in strong disfavor among the members of
TeamBlackHelicopter.


4. Miscellany
==========================================================


4.1 What format is the HappyMan MetaComic in?
---------------------------------------------

HappyMan's desire to be 'new and fun' has resulted in his migration to
the World Wide Web. The MetaComic is readable on-line at:
http://redwood.northcoast.com/~metacomx/happyman.html


4.2 Can I contact the creator of HappyMan?
------------------------------------------

Yes. E-mail to John Anderson, metacomx@northcoast.com
