Title: Special
Character(s): Ensemble. Seriously. It covers pretty much everyone, plus some Marvel Universe characters.
Rating: R across everything, to be safe.
Word Count: 4900
Spoilers: Through S2
Full-Series Warnings: Violence, potential character death, and other elements common to comics
Summary: Being a part of something special makes you special. (Also, having superpowers.)
Notes: Time to zoom in the character focus for a more detailed power examination before I pull back out to everyone next week. Speaking of the weeks to come: next week will be Rachel's POV as she pushes them toward being a real team, and Mercedes comes in the chapter to follow when there is an examination of feelings and relationships across characters.

And then everything is set up for them to go kick some ass.

As a heads-up, there was some detailed discussion in the comment section last time. This thread goes into the somewhat perplexing bigotry that Marvel civilians canonically have toward one particular subset of the superpowered population. (As we've seen from both fictional sources this story draws upon, trying to be serious about one particular topic can be sort of head-scratching when the world remains determinedly fantastic around it.) This will get more examination down the road, but not with some of the detail I mention there. Also, this thread has some recommendations for getting started reading inside the Marvel Universe if you are totally overwhelmed by your options. It sidesteps the biggest names and suggests some newer books to get your feet wet.

'You know, we drove some other people there,' Finn pointed out as Kurt's SUV rumbled down the road. )
