Now, my minions! You have what you need, now go to the studios of DC and Marvel and take over the writing staff! Make Franchise/{{Superman}} as weak as a baby! Make Franchise/{{Batman}} afraid to leave his home! Force the ComicBook/XMen to go back into hiding! Force {{Spider-Man}} to make a [[DealWithTheDevil deal with Mephisto]] to undo everything that has been done since the Silver Age! (What do you mean, [[Creator/JoeQuesada they]] [[WriterOnBoard already]] [[ComicBook/OneMoreDay did that?]])

Another subversion would be to focus on non-heroic characters. For example, a comic about the trials of a sidekick, or a VillainProtagonist -- the webcomic ''{{Webcomic/Narbonic}}'' did both (at the same time!) to great success. Changing the focus from Heroes to Heroes-in-Training, such as in the webfiction [[Literature/WhateleyUniverse Whateley Academy]] and the webcomic ''ComicBook/{{PS238}}'', is also an option. Or even a character who isn't a hero or a villain at all, but just happens to live in a world with them (like Creator/KurtBusiek and Creator/AlexRoss' ''{{Marvels}}''); how might the InnocentBystander feel about living in a world of superheroes?

Added DiffLines:


Try averting the StatusQuoIsGod trope by having characters actually age. Maybe showcase how the world will actually change now that you have super beings in it. Also, the older a super hero gets, the greater possibility that the heroe's reflexes might not be as sharp as they once were.

What is the scope of your hero's powers? Franchise/{{Superman}}, for example, is your typical hero-god type, who seems to have it all. Then you have your human hero, your Franchise/{{Batman}}, ComicBook/CaptainAmerica, ComicBook/{{Hawkeye}}, etc. In between the hero-god type and the human hero are a wide variety of options. You could have your power specialist, like TheFlash or TheHulk, or your all purpose type who is not exactly a powerhouse in and of himself, but is able to make a wide variety of powerful things happen, like ComicBook/DoctorStrange and his spells, or ComicBook/GreenLantern and his ring.

''Creator/{{Marvel}}'' and ''Creator/{{DC}}'' have spent decades doing a great job of holding our attention. Study them well.
