    Setting

    The year is 2020. The world is, for all intents and purposes, very similar to our own future; the key difference between the world of Heroes and our own is, of course, the presence of, you guessed it, superheroes.

    Superman is generally the first truly public and successful superhero, but various individuals and organizations have operated in the past, such as Captain America. Prince Namor of Atlantis has been recognized as the world's first mutant. J'onn J'onzz, the Martian Manhunter, is publicly acknowledged as the first truly alien species to make contact with mankind; the off-the-record story, however, might not agree with this turn of events. Superman's status as a Kryptonian is known, but generally, the Manhunter is seen as the first extraterrestrial contact.

    A loose timeline:

    1918 - Prince Namor of Atlantis is born.
    1919 - End of WW1
    1930 - Max Eisenhardt is born.
    1931 - Charles Xavier is born.
    1939 - Start of WW2
    1941 - Steven Rogers enlists in the military
    1942 - Operation Rebirth begins
    1943 - Captain America is revealed to the public following the liberation of a concentration camp
    1944 - Captain America is listed as MIA following the defeat of the Red Skull
    1945 - The dropping of atomic bombs on Japan ends WW2
    1946 -
