There is more to Supara than just the comic. In an effort to establish the universe, we are presenting a series of establishing pieces, helping to flesh out the era of The Foundation. My contribution to this effort, will be the Journals of Prof. Robert Auerbach.
These posts may contain spoilers for what will come, so be warned. Also, these posts are written from a regular person, and are HIS perceptions of the universe at large. So the "reality" of his journals may not actually jive with the "reality" of the universe itself. Check out the first one after the jump!
People have been on this planet for tens of thousands of years, this makes many people ask why the so-called “Powers” have only now started to appear. People say, “Maybe it is government experimentation” or “This is all because of 'the bomb'”. The truth is, no one knows where they came from, or why they are here. We don't know if they are from outer space, or angels sent from God. However, we do have ideas and numerous theories.
Have you ever noticed that throughout history, there have been numerous myths and legends? For the longest time, people have claimed that these were just primitive people trying to explain advanced concepts that they did not have the science to understand. What if, rather than being attempts to explain what they didn't understand, these mythological and legendary figures were in fact “Powers?”
Think about it. Thor, Ra, Merlin … all these people might have just been individuals that had a little something that made them unique. Could it be that someone like Hercules actually lived and breathed, but rather than being the child of a god, perhaps he was just a man who was extremely strong ... Or Thor just had the “Power” to manipulate weather?
But that begs the question, “Why did they disappear back out of the public eye?” This will require further research...
