|What do retired super heroes do? They open schools for super heroes, of course! At least that is what Pure Power did. A popular and successful super hero during the sixties, Pure Power made a name for himself by refusing to take part in dispersing the Berkley riots and even saving students from the tear gas by blowing it away with his super breath. He constantly butted heads with "The Establishment" and even did time in The Hole! But eventually he knew that sooner or later he would have to grow up and do something to earn a living in his twilight years. He really didn't have much in the way of appreciable skills, but he did know how to communicate with people, and he was good at what he did. That was when he came up with the idea of a school for paranormals. Essentially he would teach them how to use their powers and try to give their lives direction. He would try to spot potential super villains and steer them away from that life.||

the idea, they saw it as a worst-case scenario and he would be running
a school for super villains. So PP compromised with The Man and
that anyone who joined his school would have to register their
retinal image and DNA with the Federal government as well as a detailed
description of their powers. It was not a perfect solution, but
his time in The Hole PP saw some really, really bad dudes and he
the Feds' fears (imagine Jerry Garcia serving time and having a cell
to Charles Manson; it sort've broadens one's view of the world).

Here it is safe for a paranormal to let loose with their powers without
harming innocents or property. The school is a compound
of the latest in high tech medical and diagnostic equipment, as well as
satellite uplinks and resort level accomodations. Classes run
from six weeks to six months depending on the complexity of the powers
and the skill of the student. Also during this time PP runs
counseling classes, holds open houses with corporations looking for
to sponsor, and classes in ethics. Friday night is party night,
it can get pretty wild.
