The MMORPG City of Heroes let you choose the Origin type of your powers from Magic, Mutant, Natural, Science and Tech, and this played a minor role in the game. Most of these were self explanatory how their powers originated, but Natural was for those heroes "without" superpowers per se. Batman and Green Archer would be simple examples of this - people of mostly normal ability who were on par with other superheroes. Marvel's Bullseye could even be considered Natural as his powers are highly developed accuracy. I like the idea of broad grouping of origins, but the wide range of abilities (not just CoH, but easier to explain with) don't often lend well to some powersets. Sure any weapon wielding scrapper, even Claws or Super Reflexes work, but how does one justify things like Stone Tank or Radiation Defender powers from someone who...doesn't really have superpowers? Without turning this into a list, does anyone have ways to explain how mostly normalish people can have some of the stranger superpowers and special effects? Chris.
