The story takes place ten years after the Event, and an entire generation has grown up in a world of "superheroes." Unlike the heroes of the comics, however, Post-Event superheroes are certified, licensed, and regulated by state and local governments; most active heroes are members of Crisis Intervention and Aid teams and act as civilian contractors to city governments. While they do aid local police in responding to superhuman threats, mostly they act as Emergency Response Personnel. They also milk their own media-value for everything it's worth, using costumes and codenames to market their images (and sometimes to cover true secret identities). The presence of breakthrough powers is the only [[Main/{{MagicAIsMagicA}} fantastic element]] in the Post-Event world, which strives to be a [[Main/{{Deconstruction}} socially realistic]] setting, in that the story explores the political, legal, social, and personal issues created by the reality of people with superpowers. In general attitudes, the setting's superheroes resemble the more nuanced heroes of UsefulNotes/TheGoldenAgeOfComicBooks.

* TheMentor:
** Blackstone was a retired US Marine when he had his breakthrough and became one of the founders of the Sentinels. Ten years later, as the [[spoiler: last surviving and active Sentinel of the original five]], he is both the spiritual mentor to the newer Sentinels and the team leader.
** Sifu is another one; mentoring Crash, Rush's new speedster-sidekick, it is hoped that he will balance Rush's more impulsive influence.

** Though capes have revolutionized disaster relief, as seen during the [[spoiler:California earthquake]], delivering aid far faster than would be possible in the real world and rebuilding advances at a very rapid pace. There's also Heroes Without Borders, which is a sizable organization dedicated to defying this trope.

* RentAZilla: Someone decided that unleashing Kaiju upon the world was a good idea. They appear worldwide, but mostly attack Japan, who responded by forming superhero teams, as well as grabbing every Verne-type in reach and building mecha.

* RandomlyGifted: In Hope/Astra's world, the vast majority of superhumans are randomly gifted through the unpredictable survival mechanism of the Breakthrough. There are no publicly known exceptions. Children of breakthroughs are slightly more likely than the average person to also experience a breakthrough (although the odds of getting struck by lightning are still better).

It should be noted that this does not mean the child inherits the parent's powers, as this also applies to children born ''before'' the Event.
