This story idea came about because I was thinking about the very limited amount of death in golden and silver age comics, and how superheroes might interact with the Nexus setting. I decided that superheroes themselves wouldn't be very interesting since multiverses were already a major part of the comics I grew up with, though other elements of such worlds might be interesting.
My world is protected by heroes. True heroes with incredible powers. Men and women who can do incredible things that seem to bend the laws of physics.
Apparently people like this are a rarity outside of my home reality, and just as surprising to me when I first left was how fragile everyone else was. Seems that the reason so few people died in the big bang ups between the heroes and villains is because us "normal" people had evolved to be tougher and stronger in our reality to be able to compete with the supers.
So now I'm in Nexus, and I used to be an average joe, but now I'm practically a super soldier myself in this reality. My future has never looked brighter!
