Power and Consequences
State of the World
Super heroes, as we know them today appeared in the tumult of World War II. the Nazis had their Übermenschen, led by the powerful and dangerous individual, Aryan Superior. While the soldiers fought each other in the mud and blood of the battles, Allied supers fought the Nazi Übermenschen. the war ended with the dropping of the Atom bomb, and the allied troops headed home. the supers generally retired to quiet lives of anonymity. then in the 1970s Supers began appearing in the news again. this time in gaudy costumes. the first of these was known as Hyperion. even to this day he is one of the most powerful supers ever seen. since the ‘70s more and more super humans have been appearing across the globe.
