Well, it's *sort of* a superhero universe, and mostly that's because I 
stuffed the Powernaut into it.  And he is a lot more of a misfit there 
than Wyatt is.  Most of its other well-meaning superhumans work "de 
facto" for governments, though they're historically willing to set up 
their own offshore tax havens.  Leo the Pirate Vampire King is actually 
the last in a long tradition of this.

(All comments apply to the Superhuman World series prior to the end of 
Powernaut 2011.  Once I get around to writing 2012 stories, superheroes 
and non-superheroes will mingle much less frequently.)

Tanza and Max would fit pretty well in my own storylines, as long as I 
could keep them away from the Powernaut.
