The Freedomverse is a place much like our own. But dimensional travel and alien visitors happen. Ordinary people develop superpowers through winning the genetic lottery or exposure to other unknown substances. This is the normal of the Freedomverse. Many events happened as they did in our own and some had very different results. The Russian imperial family still holds power. there is now an eastern European country ruled by a despot in armor with magic might. One may see images that are familiar but they were the inspiration for this world whether through costume design or power sets or even other aspects without the creators that came before in this world of comic heroes and villains I would not be here.
