From the introduction:
This is a game of not quite gods. This is a game about individuals who need a swat team or a small army to even hope to take them down. This is a game about Rorschach, leon the professional, Kratos, John Rambo, Conan the barbarian, Baron Munchausen, lee mu bai, Beowulf, Marv, Samson etc. These sometimes monsters and hero's are just dangerous enough to be sent into situations a normal person would never emerge alive from, but not so powerful that they can survive a concentrated effort to destroy them. These are the people this game is about.
