Topics: Strike, Superheroes

Friday, 3 December 2010

NEW YORK - Superhuman vigilantes, commonly known as superheroes, have called a general strike over their work.

The first ever supoerhuman who used his powers for good was George Washington, having the ability to run nations. Superheroes and their powers, have evolved since then, with Matterman (the ability to control matter), Constructogirl (can build anything out of anything), and many others.

The superheroes, who have been protecting America, mostly New York, have donned protest boards outside of Capitol Hill.

"What do we want?" said Glory Guy (generic superhero powers), "We want better conditions to work in. We find that the cops are too complacent in catching even the pettiest of thieves, and when we do, we get lynched by the long arm of the law. It's despicable."

However, several people disagree with the saviours.

"Hey, we don't get any glory," said a UN delegate. "We sift through tons of paper about war this, war that, humans rights this, human rights that... we do the tough work, while they just prance around."

The courts ruled that the strike was unconstitutional, as the superheroes were, technically, taking the law into their own hands.

However, a new scheme details plans for a Superhuman Registration Act, where all superheroes will become federal agents, getting the same healthcare benefits and protections as any other federal worker.

"What?" said Healerwoman. "'Cause I definitely need healthcare insurance. Yeah."

The superhero community is split on the issue, with the Anti-Reg side lead by Commander States (has awesome cap, plus superhuman stuff), and the Pro-Reg side lead by Steel Guy.
