The book describes a setting where superheroes are linked to mythology and public domain characters. The modern age has superheroes appearing during the [[TheGoldenAgeOfComicBooks Golden Age]] of the 1940s, a [[TheSilverAgeOfComicBooks Silver Age]] during the 1980s, an [[TheDarkAgeOfComicBooks Iron Age]] during the 1990s, and now a [[TheModernAgeOfComicBooks Nickel Age]] for the 21st century. The setting is defined by a [[UsefulNotes/TheBronzeAgeOfComicBooks Bronze Age]] mentality with superheroes being genuinely heroic but overwhelmed by a large number of supervillains. The only reason the superheroes continue to prosper is primarily because the supervillains hate each other as much as they do the heroes.
