SYNOPSIS: The asteroid should have destroyed all life on Earth. Instead, it crumbled into nothing and moments later, there were reports of a flying man sighted all over the East Coast, a man they now call Miracle. In the days that followed, a small handful of people found themselves with superhuman powers. Some became heroes, some became villains, some worked as soldiers for a government hungry for their talents, and some simply tried to get on with their lives. Now, ten years later to the day, those who found themselves with powers a decade before are called together by the one being with the ability to speak directly into their minds, a being known only as Nevermore. Even Ralph, whose power to talk to fish had never impressed either himself or anyone else, heard the call from Nevermore that brought him to the Mel's diner, the spot that would have been ground zero had the asteroid hit. Today they are gathering...to be judged.

Higher Power represents the first time I ever played in the sandbox of the superhero genre. I love exploring what happens when you take characters with completely unrealistic abilities and ground their personalities and motives as firmly as possible in the real world.
