I have some questions about the concept of registering to be a licensed crimefighter. I'll just put them in a list, see if we can come up with good answers.
1. Does this apply to everyone who fights crime as someone who isn't part of the official law? You see, the relevant lore post states registering powers for use. Except, that in itself is tricky. You got your Batmans and Green Arrows who don't have actual superpowers, and in a world where superpowers exist, are the non-powered, non-law enforcement heroes grouped together with them? Example: In the Civil War event from Marvel, the SHRA was about controlling the superhuman populace. But superheroes who weren't actually superhuman (such as Hawkeye/Kate Bishop, Daredevil, Black Widow etc.) were still expected to sign the SHRA willingly or otherwise. On that note, what about a superhero who draws powers from an external object, like how Star-Girl has a magic staff but is otherwise powerless without it, or Blue Beetle with his scarab? What exactly does it entail?
2. Does registering to be licensed crimefighter function as a gameplay mechanic? Can you choose not to register, and instead act like a Punisher/Red Hood type of vigilante who takes matters into their own hands, usually in a brutal fashion? That would be interesting.
3. If the above is the case, how do you register anyways? Is there a place for it, an in-game internet? I'd like to know.
4. How much of a gameplay mechanic does being a licensed crimefighter play into the game itself?
