When you think of superheroes you tend to think of the old school type. You know, vigilantes who work on their own, are self-trained and hide behind secret identities. But those days are long gone, we are currently in the dawn of the modern superhero.

The modern superhero doesn't work alone, they operate as part of the Superhero Collaborative. A wing of the government, funded by taxpayers, and controlling superpower activity. Other than fighting crime and supervillains, the Superhero Collaborative also orchestrates the Registration Initiative, where all supers are required to register themselves.

These days super powered individuals are all trained from an early age, specifically for the purpose of defeating supervillains. Like a child who might be talented at sport and sent to sport academy, all supers are offered prepaid education at specialised academy. At which, alongside mathematics, history and home economics, they are also taught power control and hand-to-hand combat. Of course, not every super has what it takes to become a superhero. At the end of their time at the academy, every super is judged by an expert panel, who weigh up their strengths and flaws and determine which super will be welcomed into the collaborative as Superheroes.

So what happens to the supers who are rejected? Well, they are offered the position as reserve superheroes.

Reserve superheroes are expected to keep up their training, and always be ready for promotion to active superhero. Of course, in reality none of them do keep up their training since in the entirety of the program only three reserve superheroes have ever been called up.

In return for serving as reserve superheroes, they are provided with a job, and given room and board. Though the lack of funding results in the housing complexes barely being able to keep the lights on let alone update facilities or undertake repairs.

In the heart of New York City, tucked behind a Chinese dumpling joint off Cattle St., is Cattle House. Well, it’s officially listed as Cattle House, however all its residents lovingly, or perhaps not-so-loving, refer to it as The Barnyard. Now, ignore the graffiti lining most walls, and the peeling paint, oh, and the loose stairs and dodgey hot water, The Barnyard has something better. It’s got a lot of heart.

It provides its residents with private rooms, a communal kitchen/lounge/dining room, and communal bathrooms. Just remember to label all your food and please, please wash your dishes. There is also free WIFI, I mean it’s slow and unreliable, but free? There’s a TV in the lounge, rooftop smoking, cereal and toast in the mornings, vegetable soup in the evenings. Oh, and a laundry, though the dryers broken, so there is laundry hung out to dry on practically every stairwell and balcony.

Though everything at the Barnyard is soon to change. When the entire Superhero Headquarters is sucked into a time vortex by accident, New York City is left defenceless without any protection. Until the superheroes and the headquarters can be reclaimed, the Government will do the only thing they can, make The Barnyard the new official Superhero HQ, and promote its residents to active superheroes.
