Some stuff we know, some we don't. Act's are complex things and it's already beginning to confuse me (not hard). So to ease my aching head, hopefully everything to do with the SRA and how it works can be put here for easy reference.
Here's what we definatly know:
- 'Superheros' will be forced to register with the government
- It Requies anybody with superhuman abilities to register, even if they don't intend to use them in a super heroic capacity. It's just like owning a gun.
- Their identities and powers will be known to the government but not the public
- If you are intending to use your powers in a super heroic capacity, you have to demonstrate the necessary capability and control, demonstrating that you possess the wherewithall to use those powers responsibly. In essence, this is like qualifying to be on the police force.
- If you're not intending to go Superheroing, no further action after registration is necessary
The Grey Area:
- How do you quantify what a Superhero is?
- How the act effects foreign nationals.
- Will kids be registered?
- Whether a mandatory clause to work for the government (should they require) is included AKA you can be forced to do things by the government if they want you to.
- The terms of continued Superheroism, once registered. i.e.: do you have to be employed directly be the government and sanctioned? Or is the SRA simply a tracing method for culpability?
What else? I'll update this post with amendments and as new info comes in.
N.B. Superhero/ism is used loosely. I asked some of the Grey area bits ages ago in the Q&A above, I'll pull the answers later tonight.
