That's not even half of it.

I've realized, Nell the migrant waitress will be telling a different
story.  In my world, thanks to reality shift, the superhumans have one
history and the planet has another.   Nell knows the planetary history
now.  I've published what she knows as an update to
http://www.eilertech.com/stories/2010/waitress.htm .  (This starts
with an internment camp in 2006.)  But my statement still stands:
Superhuman World 2010 has adapted to superhumans faster than the
Marvel Universe has.
