In the year 1990, the President of the United States of America ordered what Biologists at the time deemed impossible: a sort of extreme biological weapon.
But something went wrong.
The organism was more unstable than its creators could ever imagine. It escaped in the year 1999 - a prototype, untested, and dangerous. Its effects were instant. Americans were dying at an alarming rate and a worldwide epidemic followed - but there were survivors. Some were simply human, who were lucky enough to avoid the plague...others were so much more. A mutant strain in humans, millions of years old, had reacted with the disease differently - very differently. People developed powers, unbelievable powers. Real-life superheroes. They became the epitome of a diminished society.
Now, in the year 2016, we take the scene to the metropolis that is London, England. The human population has begun to increase again, but so have the superpowered subspecies: this has given rise to a modern tale of heroes and villains. Heroes remain vigilant, assuming secret identities in order to keep their past lives and families safe. Villains do the same, but for a different, darker reason. And in the midst of this, the Westminster College has been transformed into the Westminster Academy for Heroic Arts.
