The Cardinal is dead -- long live The Cardinal!

Here's the challenge: Beat the game with only 5 missiles (no missile tanks), 2 super missiles (no super missile tanks), 2 power bombs (no power bomb tanks), 99 health (no energy tanks), no long beam, no charge beam, no screw attack, and you can't kill the second form of the giant bug in Ridley (which means you need to find the super missiles elsewhere). Although I've never done this myself, I assure you it is possible, as there are secret paths all over the place that let you avoid getting the above powerups. If, by chance, anyone actually does this, I ask them to leave a message here.
