Have you ever wanted to be a Superhero? They are idolized, looked upon as Champions of Truth and Justice. That’s the sort of hero you can be, one that always does what is right, no matter what. Pummeling baddies when they're threatening the weak, foiling the latest of a Villain’s dastardly plans to take over the world or destroy the city. It can be satisfying to end their reign of terror and put them behind bars.
Or maybe you aren’t like the Typical Hero. Maybe you don’t completely embody the traits that one might except. You could met out justice by happily breaking bones. Your type of justice can be dealt from the barrel of a gun. You might not be asked by children to sign an autograph, but you are doing your part!
When you get right down to it, it doesn’t matter what sort of superhero you are, because there is room for all types! So get there and dedicate your life to fighting crime and the forces of evil! Unless you much prefer to ally yourself with those very forces instead..

2. Watch Duty
You’ve been saddled with watching your Superhero HQ while everyone else is off punching baddies in the face! Whether you are stuck in a large space station like structure orbiting the Earth or some tall building in the middle of the city, it’s your duty to watch it.
Being vigilant is part of being a Vigilante! So you have to get out and roam the city, flying or jumping between rooftops while you’re on the lookout for crime! Driving is fine too.
You ar new to this. Whether you just got your powers or you just decided to become a hero, you’re a total newbie. Try not to make any mistakes.

People thought you were dead! You’ve been listed as such or MIA but they were wrong. Maybe you did die and you got resurrected or maybe you faked your own death. Whatever the case, time to show yourself to your allies and friends.
Being a superhero isn’t all about wearing spandex and flying around the city. Sometimes you get invited to formal event. Masks are optional and formal wear is much appreciated.

You can fight as hard as you want in the confines of the Training Simulator. Whether you are fighting against Zombies riding Dinosaurs or Ninja’s riding giant Bees, whatever you can imagine can take place here.

Someone is offering you something that you are finding it hard to say no to, even if that means switching sides for it.
