Cosmology and 'Science'
The “Science” behind super heros
The overall reasoning behind the existence of the ‘Super Mortal’ mutants and other metahumans is that there is a cosmic energy floating around the universe, and it collects all around us. On worlds where there is a high concentration of this energy in a limited number of individuals, they may be as powerful as gods to the normal inhabitants, while on our world, where there is a more diluted concentration, there are more people with abilities, but they are not necessarily god-like in their powers.
Tarot Card Figures
There are also cosmic entities that embody certain facets of the forces that cause the motion of the universe, and they act often as its guardians and enforcers. On earth, these beings are the entities represented on the Tarot cards.
Known Tarot Card Figures:
00 The Fool: Magical Hat. The Fool represents the force of chaos and change, the Journey Begun, and a willingness to learn. This position is the most common to change, and is generally the first stop for any being that is chosen into the High Arcana. Formerly Wildcard.

III The Empress: A heretic on her own world, the Empress is a symbiotic being with an almost slug-like appearance in her natural form. Her world is fraught with war between an invading force of humanoids, and her home species. She is the leader of a sect that stresses peaceful co-habitation with her host, instead of full and forceful control as is the norm for her species. She represents Fertility, Health, Beauty, Comfort, and Sensuality.
IV The Emperor: On his planet, he is the King of a pantheon of Gods, where the cosmic energy has coalesced in only the chosen few. He is rigid in his control. He represents Authority, Discipline, Control, Command, Tradition, Leadership, and Rigidity.

VIII Justice: A member of an almost extinct race, cut off from most of the rest of the multiverse. Due to their isolation, they have strongly emphasized logical thinking and distant, cold reason. He tends to keep to himself, and represents impartiality, insensitivity, realism, logic, and reason.
IX The Hermit: Unusual among a group of unusual beings, the Hermit is itself a pocket dimension, that those who can find seek for advice and council. No two people can agree on the form that the Hermit takes, because to each person that crosses their dimensional threshold, the Hermit takes on a form that the entrant would want to see, or in some cases, needs to see. The Hermit represents Introspection, Guidance, Deep Understanding, Isolation, and Philosophical attitude.
X The Wheel of Fortune: A genie from an unknown realm, he delights in making deals with people: they perform a task that will most likely not be something they’re comfortable with, but in return, they get what they were asking for.
