  1. “Ninety to ninety-five percent of these are one-off cases,” said a former senior law enforcement official with knowledge of the investigation. “Then you have five percent, maybe, of these militia groups that were more closely organized. But there was no grand scheme with Roger Stone and Alex Jones and all of these people to storm the Capitol and take hostages.”
  2. Miss Murder Despite her name, Miss Murder has never killed anyone. Instead she gets her name from her power to turn into her body weight in 45 mentally linked crows. She's not much of a fighter, her criminal career having focussed on using her alternate forms to act as lookouts, spies and jewelry thieves. When she was with the team her participation tended to involve advance scouting, and covering the team's retreats as a cloud of crows that screened the others as they made their escapes. She moved on to an independent career as surveillance for high for anyone who was willing to pay her rates. Her costume in human form is goth fashion-inspired and makes prominent use of crow feathers.
  3. Then you need to define the origin in a way that has that make sense. Which is to say you don't use a word like "Natural" which precludes superpowers and instead use a word like "Training". Fun fact, Moondragon is not a mutant, not a magician, not an alien, not an inhuman, not a radiation accident. She's just..."trained". She unlocked the powers of her mind through training/meditation and did it so well that her feats match those of Professor Xavier. Utterly absurd power manifestations through nothing but training are more typical of Chinese and Japanese comic book heroes. It means they had to work at for many years using very exotic training methods, but it allows anything.
  4. Another 5'4". Thus about three times the size of the Indian woman as depicted on that chart.
  5. Louis Slotin 1. Canadian physicist and chemist with the Manhattan Project 2. Competitive boxer in college 3. Rather than wait an extra day to reactivate an experimental reactor, went underwater in reactor coolant to fix it. 4. Received a lethal dose of radiation in second Demon Core accident.
  6. Do you wish your family had more time together? Let’s face it, with all the activities that we and our kids are involved in these days it’s getting harder and harder to get everyone to spend quality time together. And if you ARE fortunate enough to get everyone on the same couch, finding something to watch as a family (without having to hide everyone’s eyes from certain subjects) can be even more difficult, right? Well, Hollywood industry veteran Butch Hartman has a solution for you. It’s called OAXIS ENTERTAINMENT: a 24/7 streaming entertainment platform with a mission to re-connect families and bring them back together. This vision was carefully created with YOUR family in mind. We’ll have something for everyone: Sitcoms! Drama Series! Animation! Home & Garden shows! Reality shows! Fitness! Feature Films! Documentaries! Plus a “User Upload” Feature that will allow YOU to upload your very own family-friendly videos!
  7. Real people whose counterparts would be supers in a supers world. Charles Lindbergh 1. Traumatized by a terrible crime, the kidnap and murder of his child. 2. Had the best cutting edge aviation technology of the time 3. Had a flashy nickname "The Lone Eagle" 4. Eugenicist who allegedly also worked with Alexis Carrel a French surgeon who dreamed of improving humanity both through genetic improvement and cyborg replacement of body parts. Helped him invented a mechanical heart valve. 5. Denied the opportunity to join the military due to his Isolationist history, actually flew a few combat missions as a civilian. Aleister Crowley 1. Notorious occultist. 2. Sometimes called himself "Master Therion", identifying himself with the Beast of Revelation. 3. Allegedly tried to summon a god into himself. "Babe" Dedrikson 1. Fantastically versatile female athlete driven to prove herself the best at everything. 2. Capability almost as great as her ego. Unity Mitford 1. Wealthy British socialite. 2. Nazi sympathiser 3. Inflicted severe brain injury on herself in failed suicide attempt after the outbreak of war, allowed to return to Britain. Princess Lamia bint Majid AlSaud 1. Wealthy philanthropist 2. Her name is Princess Lamia
  8. Japan has a number of things like that. Tiger and Bunny: Corporate sponsored heroes on a reality show Yakuza: like a Dragon: Cellphone app that can be used by citizens in distress to call mercenary superheroes. My Hero Academia: Heroes supported by merchandising, deployed to matching power level threats by a guild. However, it's worth remembering that from its genesis the the amateur/volunteer status of most heroes was a major part of the genre. It's not that superheroes are frozen in time. It's that they were never that realistic in the first place.
