Would you be afraid of them?

 Let's say that the X-Men,  Avengers, Hulk, F4, DD, Spidey, Superman, Batman etc. exist in the real world, but the comics never existed, so we don't know their secret identities, morals, motives etc you just see them fighting on the news with strange powers. please give a reason.

Mmm... it could be like the Nazis and they will either expunge or enslave their inferiors , we are lucky if they do not treat us as livestock for pleasure and consumption. The way to live through is either to 'make' yourself superhuman by transcending (trans-humanism, post-humanism, or making a deal with the dark one) if we are the supers a day in life would be like this.

e.g.my powers: total restoration & telepathy, i hate muggles

Bystander #1: OMG that supervillain just landed at terminal velocity and decimated an entire city (cries) *waaugh*
people are screaming and cryng, some can be seen trying to locate loved ones while others are praying
Me: yawn , what is it with you saps... did your family die? (chuckles)
Bystander #2: @#$% you (runs at me with anger and frustration)
I quickly pick up my sidearm and emptied a round at his temple , then spat at his corpse
Bystander #1: Jesus... that was just a child, who do you think you are! (staggers in the mix of anger an fear) [@#$%ing bastard, i can't even touch him]
Me: is that all you do sap? curse and twit around, even your mind is full of excrement
I snap my dingers and all is restored, along with the dead and their mind wiped so that they forget the accident and

Bystander #1 walks away with the lingering compulsion to commit suicide

Suggestion: turn yourself into one of them before they decide to kill all of us

"Better a meta than a not a"
quote from house of M

Frankly if you are born special and receive hate... you will consider forgiveness or punishment... and i think the latter is easier!

Humans will receive an Apocalypse scarier than Zombies and Robots combined, imagine fighting an immortal army with a posthuman God at their side?

Look below...

Human Extermination Campaign!








Unless if they join!

Damn Straight!


Or Die!

I'm pretty sure people would adjust. 

Humanity is capable of getting used to and overcoming anything.

Sure, there would always be bad people with powers, but for every Red Skull who threatens innocents and creates fear, there would be a Captain America to inspire hope and justice.

I would be scared, but I would also do whatever I could to gain my own super powers. I think naturally everyone would be scared. 


Also, the world would be a whole lot more messed up...

Doubtful. Power corrupts. In real life, there will be a lot less 'good' supers than there are bad ones. I forsee a mutant revolution.

They can't trust their heroes,and they don't even like them at times,but they can also be very grateful for them.

if their were a small group of superhumans varying from street lvlers to godlike abilities, they would rule the world whether we wanted them to or not. the government would try to police them but it would only work with the ones that would allow it and were susceptible to small arms fire.  overall like some one said it would be survival of the fittest the world would go back to the strong which humans in general would not be.
