"Nah, though most are."

"Powers work in all kind of ways, I guess."

"So they're pretty well known here?"

Permalink

"Sure, people recognize them. Not as much as the heroes, but villains don't tend to have professional PR teams."

"There's a Masquerade where I'm from - so like, powers are a secret from the general populace. And I have no idea how that's enforced."

Permalink

"Seems like it would be difficult. Capes have secret identities, but they've been popping up since the eighties."

Permalink

" - Meguca date way farther back than that."

"Active masquerade's even weirder, then. The first recorded parahuman buzzed a whole cruise ship in the middle of the ocean."

"People who intend to break it - or who're really reckless with power use - tend to mysteriously vanish, so, yeah, there's some kind of magic masquerade secret police."

Permalink

"Spooky."

Permalink

"Getting to actually stretch my legs in this world will be super fun."

Permalink

"Yeah? What's that gonna look like?"

Permalink

"Hmmm... I'll need to do some information gathering before I decide for sure."

Ellie nods. "That's fair. As long as your decision doesn't involve me getting dead."

Permalink

"I promise it won't. It'd be a waste of a pretty girl."

Permalink

"Good to know that's my primary value."

Permalink

"First thing to draw my attention! Though I'm coming to like your mind."

Permalink

"Uh huh."

She decides to take the hint. 

"Anyways - I honestly don't entirely know where to start on the information gathering... Heroes and villains - is this like, superhero genre?"

Permalink

"Genre isn't a word people usually apply to life, but yeah, more or less. You trigger, you get a power, you dress up in a costume and go out at night to either cause or prevent problems."

Permalink

"Well then. I've always wanted to be a supervillain."

Permalink

"I guess Philly's not the worst town to start on that ambition."

Permalink

"And if those two are at all typical, then this place desperately needs an infusion of style."

Permalink

"Their costumes were more on the low budget end."

"Who else is around?"
