New World Order Academy
Up until 2012-10-22 the game world had no more real proof or experience with "real" supernatural or super powers than our own, Real World (possibly less depending on who you believe). The initial super powered (or supernatural) entities were from dimensional breaches into the game world, but after those breaches were (largely) closed in thwarted invasion 140 days later on 2014-3-11, it came to the attention of Homeland Defense that there seemed to be..."local contamination", that is to say, people native to the game world began to develop super powers as well. The phenomena is very rare, and seems to only happen in teenagers, typically younger teens, and these "native" powers are in general weaker and more erratic than the extra-dimensional ones, but after a few "incidents" it became the official mandate to identify and "contain" these people in a special place of their own.
