This is an alternate world, divided by power. Not the power of politics or wealth, but literally by power. There are Normals, like you and me. Regular people with regular problems. And there are Supers, people who have developed superhuman abilities. Heroes and Villains who play narcissistic games for the cameras backed by corporate sponsors. In the usual comic book world, they would be fighting the noble cause, with human flaws.
But our alternate world is a bit more honest. They fight for money. Sponsorship, corporate backing, endorsements. And the Normals eat it up, they bet on the outcomes, they buy the merchandising, the root for their heroes AND their villains even though they run the risk of being ground underfoot in these showcase battles.
For the Normals, It's like living your life in the center of a World Wrestling ring or the middle of a NASCAR track.
It's a multi trillion dollar industry. Society is based on it. It's perfect for the powers that be, they have a major stake in the status quo. It's an industry where the very people most at risk, the Normals, are caught up in the thrill and adventure of the battles. Who would want to change that?
A strange, new, unknown hero is taking down the Supers. No one knows who he is, or where he came from. He doesn't seem to have sponsors, he's acting outside the Super Rules of engagement.
He is a threat to everything the world has become. So who is he?
He is a she. She is a college student. She has no powers at all. But she has a focused rage that will bring them all down, once she discovers their secret.
To quote VilleAnne:
"It's a fucked up world with fucked up rules and fucked up people doing fucked up things. If it weren't for the fucking companies that fuck people up, we'd be more fucked than we are. But the fuckers they pay are the fuckers we love, which is fucked.
I could walk away from it. After all, there is no way to change it, no way to fix the system, right? Everybody knows one rule is absolute... Normals can't stand up to Supers.
But fuck it. I'm in."
