Secret Origins

"And you don't wanna be here in the future
So you say the present's just a pleasant interruption to the past
and you don't wanna look much closer
because you're afraid to find out all this hope
you had sent into the sky by now had crashed
and it did
because of me

and then you bring me home
afraid to find out that you're alone
and i'm sleeping in your living room
but we don't have much room to live."

Now

It is the present day. Although there are some hypertechnologies that have been in the news, they are not mass-produced, and the life of ordinary people is basically the same as it is in the real world. Government support of the insurance industry in the turbulent sixties staved off its collapse under the weight of mutant-related claims. And the space program is a lot more cautious ("What will happen NEXT?") and controlled by the military. This also means that communications satellites are less common and cellphone coverage of the world is about five years behind what it is in the real world. Otherwise there are no differences.
