The first recorded attempt at a true ÜberXena in the Xenaverse was a non-web posted never completed serial short story called "Get Your Kicks on Route 66" by Miss and Aisa, which was released on a private mailing list in early June 1997.
This Uber was written sometime in January 1997, a full SIX months before the first attempt was made in the Xenaverse ... it resembles an Über in superficial ways but completely misses the soulmate theme between the ÜberX and ÜG.
The first recorded proto-ÜberXena was not found in the Xenaverse, but on a Hercules fan fiction website.
Is this just one of those weird things that can only be explained by history and knowing who the popular writers were early in the fandom, as (I believe) explains the popularity of Uberfic in the Xenaverse?
I think the Xenaverse has a new love story to believe in.
