So this weekend we will be playing Microscope to build our "Supers" world for a MHRP game we will be playing.
It seemed like a good idea.
Here is my problem.
Super heroes do not make sense to me, never have. I am a nerd and enjoy those types of stories, but I have never got how that world would work. Yes I know I should suspend my disbelief for the sake of fun and story, but there is just way too much belief being suspended. Why isn't everyone a super? How do buildings get rebuilt so fast? I mean in most super hero stories I have read, the heroes would be the greatest terrorist threat the world has ever seen, if they existed in our world.
Since we are making our own world, help me with some conceptual ideas on how to make one that works.
