Deviant by Kataclysm

You don't need a gun to win a war.

In 2009, the world changed as Seattle fell to a tsunami, one created with sheer willpower. The rise of “Deviants,” superhumans with unique abilities and powers, was almost immediate. Factions formed, fighting themselves and each other, and once mundane criminals became lethally efficient killers. Heroes rose up, but they were few and far between. It is now 2025. The . . .

Dec 30, 2014: Drop into a bizarre version of our world in which superhero is a profession which an anxious teen might drift into because that’s what the folks do (despite the lack of any, you know, superpowers), time travel and alternate realities are a perfectly reasonable explanation for why a girl doesn’t know her grandparents, and demons, telepaths, sphinxes and gargoyles are characters you might run into at any time.

The best with Kinda Super Gay is the dialogue. Funny [more . . .]
