The Government's Bureau of Superheroics dates back
to 1929, when The President initiated a comprehensive
plan to deal with feared supervillain
The response was overwhelming. From
"To support those who take the law into their own
gauntleted hands and defend the planet and its
population from threats both supervillainous and
alien; to administer all Governmental Regulations
pertaining to Costumed Crimefighters and to provide
Indispensable Guidance in Straightforward Language
regarding the same; to eschew Unnecessary
Capitalization wherever Practicable; and to revise and
publish, from time to time, The
Government Manual for New Superheroes."
Today, the Bureau aims to uphold the same high standards set by its first agents. Through regulation of all teleportation device repair shops and supermobile mechanics, we ensure the safety of millions of superheroes. Through frequent inspections of secret headquarters, we ensure their personal comfort. Through scholarships to the nation's most prestigious superuniversities, we ensure their equal access to education.
Yes, wherever men, women, orphans, aliens, and gods of extinct pantheons don costumes and fight evil, the Bureau of Superheroics will be there, ensuring that they have filled out all necessary paperwork well in advance. Stand on any corner in this great country÷from Metroville to Centralopolis, and from Rust Town to New City÷and before long, you will hear a BoS agent calling out the Bureau's rallying cry: Sursum, sursum, et absens!
