A Super Fic is essentially a work of fanfiction centering around one or more canon characters re-imagined as superheroes, or at the very least they gain superpowers and spend the rest of the fic learning to deal with them. It can either diverge from canon at a specific point, or it can be an entire Alternate Universe
in of itself.
