Edge World is our world, our reality, our history at least until July of 2017. That is where the break takes place, so to speak.
July 2017 in the Edge World, specifically July 6th, reality, time and to a degree space shifts just enough to create a whole new reality. Some super smart scientists (or S4) have expressed the possibility that we (the real us not our Edge World doppelgangers) live in a universe that is just one among many – for comic book fans it works out to a scientific theory that the multi-verse is a real thing. Many of the theories treat these extra universes as representations of the infinite choices that impact our lives. For example, one universe where you decided to read this blog post and one where you did not.
The Event of Edge World which takes place on July 6, 2017, gives reality super-humans, normal people with superpowers. Eventually, those superpowered folks are labeled Edges. Eventually, normal people figure out the score and react in fairly typical ways… panic, fear, interest, awe, the whole gambit of emotions.
Like in our world, after all, it was born of our world the Edge World is made up of good people, bad people, and people just trying to get by. Which results in Edges being good (heroes), bad (villains), and neither.
Starting with the Origin Story series you are invited to take a peek into the Edge World.
