On the 25th of January, 2018, the Science and Security Board of the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists set the Doomsday Clock to two minutes to midnight. While typically focusing on nuclear risk, climate change, and emerging technologies, the Bulletin was forced to take growing metahuman policies into consideration which culminated in a response that the world is heading even more rapidly toward their own man-made doomsday.
This game expands on the idea of this imminent danger by placing superhuman characters in a world where the tide of metahuman panic is at an all-time high.
There are no Avengers or Justice League to save us. Only the everyday citizens who choose to stand up and fight against tick-tock of the doomsday clock.
