I think it’s just a coincidence.

Im offended by your blatant enviromentalist propaganda. Nuclear fission couldnt hurt a fly, you goddamn hippies.
Maybe it’s all the lead paint
Clearly this is not environmentalist propaganda, after all, radiation gives you Super Powah!
I wonder how long it will take until one of them is bitten by a radioactive USB memory and turns into the Burninator?
Welcome to Springfield!
Where I have to sign to move in?
Incidentally, those too normal to get a superhero origin died due to environmental hazards (and at least one alien abduction accident).
C’mon folks, its how evolution works.
Is that Doug Funnie all grown up? I guess he kept his same sense of style, but he’s got more hair now. Also, I guess the woman he’s with means he gave up on Patti Mayonnaise.
I want me some super powers. I’m gunna go lick a nuclear reactor right now!
Yay, it’s Lynn from Iamarg.com :D
What was the quota again? One third of population superheroes, one third supervillains.
Hey Mongo, tell that to the ppl who live in Japan
That was a joke.
Besides, in Japan, they falsified maintenance records and never used the time gained to catch up on repairs. This has happened with all their reactors. The government was also very lax with inspections and was willing to take the word of power plant officials as to the extent of the leak (at first).
In a known earthquake zone (ring of fire) this sort of disaster was bound to happen.
Ourorboros: Though truth be told, now that they doublechecked possible risks with nuclear plants here in Switzerland following the Fukushima debacle, they noticed at least one of our five plants to be quite insecure as well. And that for decades some potential causes of desaster simply weren’t thought of at all.
And while not nearly as much as Japan, we’re an earthquake country as well.
It’s not farfetched that other countries might suffer from the same problems as well.
(above statement made by myself, not the anonymous Ourorboros originally answered to)
I wanted to add that while we do not have a coastline that can suffer from tsunami waves, three of the five plants (including the one mentioned) sit right beneath river dams.
I don’t really want to go into relative safety of power generation, but people die from all the high output types.
Look at the death rate of coal miners around the world each just from mine collapses. It exceeds Fukishima.
Add in the shortened lives from pollution in the general population and miner specific conditions.
Geothermal and tide generation aren’t available for most of the earth, wind and solar are not major power producers.
Building powerplants under dams wasn’t a stroke of genius though.
My point about Japan stands though. The power plant owners actively hid problems and did nothing about it. I have never heard of such a thing anywhere else other than Russia.
Every time you bring up real physics in a discussion about superhero universes, a Dependent Non-Player Character gets murdered and stuffed into a refrigerator. Please, think of the DNPC’s!!!

Just you wait and there’ll be a werewolf superhero. Superwolf!
I bet that their home was built over an ancient cemetary as well…
