Years ago the wars between the Avians and the Mammals were tearing apart the land. Relations were in tatters and once a majority of the Avians were wiped out with Nuclear blasts the remaining survivors became POW’s. Half of the survivors were taken to secret underground facilities where they were experimented on. As they began to show signs of unnatural powers an escape effort was put in to action and the prisoners integrated back in to society where they could.
Avians being a rare sight nowadays they are often discriminated against so many stay in the shadows, as they reproduced there was a 50/50 chance their offspring would be enhanced. These enhanced individuals were known as Kinetics due to their ability to manipulate objects with their mind, though they could only manipulate objects withing 10cm of their body.
With power comes chaos, Kinetics began to appear and wreak havoc on the populace. This is where Birdman came in to the light.
