This system also features an innovative and fun mixture of Roleplaying and Mechanics. Each player needs to make a Civilian that will Anchor them to the real world of Union City. After all, what is Clark without Lois? What is Peter without Aunt May? It is by interacting with these Anchors that players regain Hero Points. This system not only links each hero to the city but it also provides a unique window into the world of ordinary people living in a city full of superheroes. These characters provide avenues for motivation, plot hooks, and storytelling opportunities for both player and Gamemaster. An Anchor could be a parent or mentor, a love interest, a partner who aids the fight against evil, a teacher, or roommate or best friend. Anyone who doesn't have powers and an alter-ego but who matters deeply to the hero.
