I liked seeing how suspicious many people were about the League of Superheroes in this story. I tried to make the other groups realistically varied, evil like hedge funds or illegal wars, with a fairly stable place in the world even if you don't like it, rather than like Demons of Pure Evil (which I think is a problem with many superhero stories). But I intended the League to be exactly as seemed: a bit ineffectual, but generally well-meaning and mostly trying to do a good job. I was pleasantly surprised I'd built in enough ambiguity people could see the world from a completely different viewpoint to me and the story still worked.
I was curious:
* How many people read the story
* If you did, which bits of the world you were curious about?
* Where you thought the League fell on a scale from "pure good" to "pure evil" :)
