** New Wave deliberately go without masks out of a belief that they can bring accountability to supers. In the backstory, this resulted in one of their members getting murdered in her civilian identity. The culprit was quickly made an example of, but it still killed the movement from expanding beyond the two founding families.

Added DiffLines:

** Attacks from the [[{{Kaiju}} End]][[EldritchAbomination bringers]] aren't simply [[TheTokyoFireball shrugged off and rebuilt]], but usually result in whole regions being abandoned. After every attack, maps have to be redrawn, casualties typically exceed the four digit range and countless more are left homeless. Just one of the Endbringers was able to reduce Japan to a third-world nation. With their current rate of attrition, humanity will be extinct in just a few decades.
** As [[spoiler: Taylor]] finds out, the heroes are stuck with the need to [[SlaveToPR uphold their reputations]] as heroes, meaning that they're not allowed to use attacks or tactics that make them look less than heroic... which leads to their losing battles that they could have easily won if they'd been allowed to use all their attacks.
** After [[spoiler: Coil]] gives a wealth of information (including real names, addresses and so on) about Empire Eighty-Eight to the media, social services take Purity's baby daughter into care while Purity is at work. So what happens when a super villain finds out that the media knows everything about her and her daughter was taken from her? She snaps, rallies her team and starts blasting the shit out of everything she can until Tattletale helps her get her baby back.

** America and Canada have formed the Protectorate, which is the largest gathering of heroes in the world and also has the powerful of them in its ranks. They provide support and leadership to other heroes all over the world and generally act more like police than a military unit. They cover all of North America and are in talks to cover Mexico as well. Parahumans are generally treated well, and they seem to have quite a few parahuman immigrants. Though the US in particular has a lot of villains, and they have had to deal with more S class threats than anyone else.

* ShootTheMedicFirst: Supplementary material mentions that, all parahuman threat ratings being equal, operatives are to target Thinkers first. Considering that they boast things like SuperSenses or precognition, this is justified. It is telling that, in a world with so many superpowers, two of the most feared parahumans are otherwise physically normal people who are top-tier Thinkers.

* WhatKindOfLamePowerIsHeartAnyway: Worm runs the entire gamut between this and HeartIsAnAwesomePower.
** At the low end of the spectrum is Leet, who can build anything ''once.''
** Skidmark can lay down low-level force fields, but with a little time and prep, they can become something to be reckoned with.
** Faultline can disintegrate things, but only non-organic material, and only in small ammounts, unless she has multiple points of contact. At one point, she drills through a wall by spreading her arms and legs out, and touching the all with both arms, both feet, and her nose.

Something of a bonus feature, if you're into story analysis[[note]]And if you're reading this, you probably are OneOfUs[[/note]], is the ''staggering'' amount of stuff in the comments to each episode. They span from meta analysis, [[WildMassGuessing wild mass guessing]] from spot on to crackpot, DarkComedy, to short stories in their own right. Since it's all jumbled up and not indexed, ArchivePanic does not even begin to describe it.

'''Spoiler Warning''': Worm is extremely heavy on {{Wham Episode}}s, and has a fast moving GodzillaThreshold. Both this and the cast page are heavily masked by spoiler tape; WMG, Quotes, and the Moment pages (Funny, Heartwarming, Awesome, and Tearjerker) are ''not''. Open them at your own risk.
