    Recently read this story (NSFW after the fight)

    CapesAndCloaks on mcstories
    and I really liked howhat the world was set up. The protagonist managed to be a real person and the world made sense even while keeping the trappings of a super powered world.Has anyone read any similar stories they'd be willing to rec?

    A specific example of one of the things I really liked was that the main character was doing grunt work for a major villain in order to build some contacts and a rep.

    Seeing that this is the SFW part of the site, maybe it would be a good idea to kill the link?
