So, then. 2011 almost over, and this place become all silent and dark like a Firefly fan's bottom drawer.
Three years would have passed since the dawn of the timeline of Aberrant. Time enough for the major events of the game to have taken place, in some alternate universe of novas and M-R nodes and Quantum.
The world here has gone and passed the novas by, cast a glance at Project Utopia, the Teragen, the Aberrants and all of the freaks, Tainted and otherwise, and passed them by, not looking back once.
And yet ...
Look at what hit us over the last few years, beginning with the late 1990s.
Hollow Man (if you think of the protagonist as a Tainted hero with a mental aberration and a power that was peroamently on as a result of a physical aberration)
Spider-Man 2: Rise of the Pisspoor Sequel
The Incredibles ("No capes!")
Catwoman (please feel free to cut loose your gag reflexes)
V For Vendetta
My Super Ex-Girlfriend
Spider-Man 3: The Worst Sequel
Fantastic Four: Rise of the CGI Surfer
The Dark Knight
The Incredible Hulk, The One Without The Dad Angst
Klaatu Does A Keanu Reeves Cosplay, aka DTESS
X Men Origins: Wolverine
Iron Man 2
X-Men First Class
The Green Hornet
The Dark Knight Rises
And now, TV series:-
Smallville - 2001-2011 (breaking records for long-running series in its genre)
Misfits - 2009
Heroes (2006 - 2010)
Mutant X (2001 - 2004)
Dark Angel (2000)
and lastly, Alphas (2011 - ).
We still have comics, only nowadays they're also becoming available in PDF and through Amazon on Kindle. The X-Men, the Avengers, Thor, Iron Man - they have reached the mainstream.
I'd actually call this era the very heyday of the "Nova Age."
