Welcome to your stereotypical Metropolis, where powerful people of both good and bad intention live among the usual citizen! Times have been quiet here recently, but that might just mean something big is on the rise.

IN DIRE NEED OF VILLIANS

You're welcome to be anything that fits this Au, but beneath are some suggestions if you run low on ideas! Keep in mind that heroes not aligned with the government are likely to keep their identities hidden, to avoid harassment by the press and by authorities.

Classes
A hero of the government- who's gifts are mostly kept in line by ruling powers. They are the ones that get the keys to the city, and make speeches. They are, however, occasionally subject to criticism, as some think that letting the government decide how they handle crime to strip them of the essence of a hero.
A vigilante-esque hero- one who picks for themselves who they help and win. In the eyes of those higher up, they can be just as bad as the villains that they work against. If the identity of these people is leaked, they can face harassment to become a "pet of the government" and/or arrest.
An oddity- these people have powers akin to a hero or villain, but either choose not to use them, or don't know of them. They blend in exceptionally well (most of the time, anyway) and refrain from picking sides for their own personal reason - most attempt to live a normal life, but they are easy targets for the government and for villains looking to trim down on possible threats.
A villain- someone who has taken the opportunity provided by either wealth or unnatural powers to get the upper hand over the common person. They are often cruel, and will do virtually anything to reach their goal (whether this goal is something physical or mental is up to the rper.)
An abomination- The one who uses their powers for evil. Not to seek power, wealth or fame, but just simply because they can. Because they find joy in ruining the lives of others in as many ways as they can. They are objects of fear to anyone that encounters them, be it a hero or a villain. This class is unpredictable, violent, and above all else, the textbook definition of their name.
The everyday joe- A completely normal person. To the public, heroes endorsed by the government are the only heroes - all others are kept on the down-low unless they can be successfully reasoned with. Some are much more capable to defend themselves in case of an emergency. Some are the very people that work to pat down the vigilantes, and some live alongside these powerful people without ever batting an eyelash.

Now that you've got some ideas tumbling around, hop right in! Keep in mind that the mods cannot and will not hold your place for you if you don't reserve on the sheet, or, if you're on mobile, ask someone to reserve for you.

Show Background Info/Sample RP

A young girl stands in her room, curious and floored. Surrounded and entrenched in a pile of cloth, her hands wander about the ribbons and the scraps as she calls out the elements she had so recently learned in class. And as she called out to them aloud, and as her skin brushed against the fabric, the texture beneath her finger tips began to change. The cool sky blue of her blouse, so frilly and soft became as rough and unmanageable as iron at her word. The stark red of her dress, now unflappable as steel somehow was so fluid to wear reverting as soon as she was disrobed. Even her boa, which she had gotten as a joke, floated and turned as wispy as smoke given just a bit of thought.

Looking to her now ruined sewing machine, broken needles and crushed loom, she brushed her bangs from her face in a sigh. "If only I had figured this out sooner." Though in remorse, her tone ended with a smile.
