    I tend to have a lot of female NPCs who are Catwoman style "villain one day, helpful ally the next" sort of thing.

    Don't know why there are predominantly female, other than to counterbalance my mostly male hero group. But I probably should mix that up a bit.

    Couple of other recurring themes I forgot to mention:

    * MASS-EMPOWERING EVENTS: Instead of a million different "weird science" backgrounds, in my universe, there have been about 3 or 4 different events that have granted metahuman abilities to the population.

    * MISMATCHED COSTUMES: Let's face it: Several power types tend to attract certain styles of costumes (speedsters, for instance, tend to wear tight Fantastic Four-style jumpsuits; a costume category, by the way, that I enjoy). But there are many characters I've worked on whose outfit seems a little out of place. Not in the "designed by a blind clown" way, but a little out of place. For instance, a Powerhouse/Brick who, rather than wear an outfit that screams "Look at my muscles!", is wearing loose-fitting Assassin's Creed-style robes. Or an Energy Controller whose outfit colors/patterns don't tell the world their energy ability (red/flames, blue/ice, etc.)
    "Let me strive every moment of my life to make myself better and better, to the best of my ability, that all may profit by it. Let me think of the right and lend all my assistance to those who need it, with no regard for anything but justice. Let me take what comes with a smile, without loss of courage. Let me be considerate of my country, of my fellow citizens and my associates in everything I say and do. Let me do right to all, and wrong no man." - Clark Savage, Jr.
