As promised here is a little more info on The Emperor's "power".

Essentially, Hirohitos' only power is the ability to bestow powers on others (and conversely, can't "empower" himself). Now this does not mean that he can create supers at will. First, 'cause he isn't dumb, he would only give powers to those he trusted, and keep them close. Second He has a finite pool of power to bestow. Thus once he divvy's it up, he can't make more. It would kinda like how the Pederson Flash was divided among the Specials in Rising Stars. Theoretically, he could make one really uber-powerful Superman-type super, but this would use up his entire pool. Following Turbo's argument, though, he has wisely divided it among several people, of varying power levels (I.e. His "yojimbo"). Thus while powerful, there are many "hitches" to how "the "blessing" works. I just wanted to make it clear that I wasn't trying to "power-game" with this tid bit. I just thought it was a neat twist. Plus it fits in with the "Divinity" angle of the Emperor.

Oh forgot. Turbo chime in with clarification if I forgot anything, as we both kinda brainstormed this puppy.

It'll be interesting to see assuming this keeps Japan out of the war...

Oh.. I think TOjo ain't outta the fight yet... he's got an entire unit of supers, plus loads of Biochemical weapons. that and the news of the WWII Japanese Submersible Aircraft Carrier found off the coast of Oahu has given me tons of ideas.

You're just tempting me to have the SoF help Hirohito get rid of Tojo, you know that...don't you?

And hey! Then he can join up with Hitler and the Axis! And then we get Japanese on both sides of WWII. Just like the French...

Hrmm....

Nah, this seems pretty much okay.

Bonus points for the Rising Stars comparison.
