I plan for Vigil to be a PL10 world filled with PL5 heroes.
The U.S.A. has legalized vigilanteism. People can apply for Vigilante licences, which give certain additional rights to crime fighters. Not everyone wants them or trusts them, but it has been fairly well received.
People are wildly different too. Magic is no longer hidden, and people manifest mutant powers. Most of the time people don't have anything incredibly powerful, and cases have been found where baseline humans have been able to exceed where powered people couldn't. In fact there are 2 designations people use, Powered and Emergent. A powered person has powers, an emergent is not well defined. Heroes and villains are emergent. Batman would be emergent, your moms witchcraft class is not. Emergent people seem to just have an edge over those that don't.
Emergent was coined by Kolus, the former leader of The Vigil, as to why Red Ghost, an unpowered hero, was chosen to join the Vigil over Harold Farman aka The Rock.
"When danger rears it's head, most people stand in shock or run, in maybe a hundred people, only a handful will emerge and fight. Those people are the firefighters and the rescue workers. But if you up the danger even more, less and less show up. The vigil is made up of those who stood up in times of incredible danger. Our ranks will only be joined by the Emergent few. The Rock is not one of those people, Red Ghost is."
