Many SuperHumans around the world use their powers to uphold justice and freedom. Over time, these SuperHeroes have become more and more vital in keeping the rising numbers of SuperVillains in check.
The first recorded case of a SuperHuman creating an alter-ego for himself in order to fight crime occurred in 1824, when Raphaël Chevallier took up the mantle of Le Gardien. Others followed his example, and the world's first SuperHeroes were born. These superpowered vigilantes were considered little more than urban legends; their first true rise to prominence was during World War I, protecting innocent civilians from the horrors of the war.
Still, Heroes remained mysterious figures from World War to World War, until advances in technology during World War II allowed governments to finally crack down on the SuperHumans roaming rampant through their countries. The ever-increasing number of SuperHumans in the years after WWII led to increases in the number of both Heroes and Villains; their heated battles soon became public spectacles, often frightening civilians and wreaking havoc.
Times changed, and SuperVillains began working together in organized crime syndicates; the once solitary SuperHeroes began to band together into teams, and over the years some of those teams coordinated their efforts. As the world began to see more and more instances of Heroes protecting them from Villains, the public outlook began to change; Heroes became minor celebrities, figures who inspired a sense of security and safety.
In 1993, a number of SuperHeroes gathered together with the United Nations and formed an international organization known as the League of Salvation. The League revolutionized crimefighting, bringing together unprecedented numbers of Heroes from around the world together to combat villainy.
But even though the League of Salvation is by far the biggest name in heroism, many SuperHeroes continue to operate alone, or in small teams. These Heroes operate on a more localized scale, fighting crime in their immediate area while the League targets major threats.
