Perhaps, but not a non-super exclusion. In 4E the Harbinger of Justice could summon guns from a pocket dimension. Several members of the Card Shark organization had low-level superhuman abilities, like One-Eyed Jack and Deadman's Hand. Carnivore was a gene-spliced human-animal hybrid. And so on.

That was my gripe. Look at the build suggestion for Heroes. Any Powers was technological not pure super powers. Yet he had villains that broke that rule.

Indeed. To my mind it is more about genre and tone (morally gray comic book vigilantes) than power level. The Six Million Dollar Man, the Bionic Woman, the A-Team, Walker Texas Ranger, James Bond, Mission Impossible, etc. those are all firmly planted in the action adventure genre, with little-to-no gray area between heroes and villains, and so they don't really fit the core "Dark Champions" charter. They belong in an Action Hero genre book instead, IMO.

 

I would put the A Team in the Saturday Morning Cartoon genre

 

Lucius Alexander

 

I would put a palindromedary in a tagline

Dark Champions is on TV right now - it's called Arrow. [rimshot]

 

Definitely the example I will use to explain the difference between a vigilante and a superhero: "Vigilantes are basically like Arrow, and superheros are more like Flash..."

Or the Difference between Jessica Jones, and Hellcat in the final Season of Jessica Jones.  Both use Similar methods, but one shows restraint now, and the other is confident in their own judgement.
