Scraps/Ideas/Hot Takes

  • Prometheus as an alcoholic. The damage booze does to him are the real vultures.
  • 'The Family' as a group of police officers, with the main officer stealing anomalies and handing them out / controlling members of his group with them.
  • 'The Mask Society' — group of ultra-rich socialites who use anomalies to pretend to be a masked hero (like the Whisper), 'murdering criminals' and 'helping keep the city pure'. Murdering criminals here mostly just means murdering the poor. The Whisper murders them all.
  • Who murdered the Mystery Men? I think Mr. Night has been quietly murdering all of them over the past few years; this is just cleaning up.
