Hammerhead Society
"Just look at him. So sleek. So powerful. So… beautiful, like some great golden god made flesh. Of course, any sensible god would demand absolute obedience in return for his favor. But, no, our Man of Steel protects us, with no strings attached. The people? Hmph. They practically worship him anyway. Enjoy your reign while you may, Superman. For surely as night follows day, there comes a time when even gods must die…" -Lex Luthor


The most insidious of the Seven Deadly Sins is that of Envy - and in a world where superhumans walk amongst us, envy finds fertile growth in the hearts of normal men. Why should they be gifted with flight, with strength, with immortality, while hard-working people have but their mortal bodies and minds to rely upon? Some worship the heroes - the Hammerhead Society despises them. They shout at the pulpet about how Satan Himself must have empowered these metahumans through infernal pacts, they give speeches about how dangerous it is to have them amongst us and how stricter laws must be passed. They whisper about secret conspiracies, alien invasions and superhumans planning to conquer the world.

No one knows where or when the Hammerhead Society began, at least no-one that's talking, but men and women with the hammer pin on their lapel began showing up in high society and politics sometime in the late nineties, and the movement has been growing ever since. Attempts to trace its structure are led by one recruit back to the three or four other members they know… and then another group, and another until the trail is lost. They have no organized structure that anyone is aware of, more of a movement or philosophy than society, but some believe it's only a matter of time before someone uses the symbol of the hammer to bring these disparate people together to act as one.

Some fear it's already happened.
