In 2075 an anomaly blossomed where people developed superpowers. 5 years later the majority of people (80%) had these powers and were fittingly named quirks. These 'quirks' were causing an outbreak in crime and delayed medical improvements. A new profession bloomed: heroes. Heroes were paid according to how much crime they stopped or how many innocents they saved. Different quirks were better suited for different hero work. Heroes needed to be professionally trained, so many hero schools sprouted, many more sought after than others, some old schools implemented hero courses training aspiring heroes.
