Oh maybe I've missed something then but Riptide/Marina doesn't have a secret identity at all since her distinctive features make it pretty much impossible anyway. Of course she can just deny being in the HCP but the "required secret identity" is kind of difficult.

I'm assuming the weapons course includes non offensive gear? Ie Iron Man would be weapons department despite his weapons being only a subset of his armor.

If so, definitely weapons for Wen. Minor in focus and melee, a few ranged electives. He has some abilities that dip their toe into most categories but I assume they aren't required courses for secondary attributes.

Josei would probably be focus, with a ranged and subtetly minor. Picked up some weapons courses in second year, see RP sample for reasons 😀

To be fair, the secret identity thing is pretty easy as long as one doesn't go around blabbing about HCP stuff during their school days. The classes are separate, the instructors are separate, and ordinary college students don't even know how to get to the HCP classes. Obviously, you don't have to have a secret identity after graduation. The HCP doesn't have any hold over you after you're a full fledged hero.

Where do they get the costumes from anyway?

Definitely going to have to make more tweaks to the app and to Gauss, might as well work that in.

Suddenly has the idea that he might wear at least a costume if not clothing with metal strands weaved in because with his powers he can in effect have bulletproof armor on without anyone any the wiser.

Costumes have to be custom made. The school provides the first one at graduation, but more advanced versions would have to come out of the students' own pocket.

And College Students are supposed to have that kind of money?

I think I found a plot hole.

The free one is at graduation. Presumably pre-graduation you aren't going out in costume, and post-graduation you're working. If you manage to completely destroy your free costume before coming into some extra income then you get to relaunch your career as "Lord Sweatpants".

From the sound of it you don't have to conceal the fact that you have some kind of power. Recall that there are Powered, which differ from Supers in their lack of control. And there are Corpies, who are non-Hero Supers that use their powers in a corporate non-combat setting. Presumably there are supers who are neither Corpy nor Hero, and just go about their business as a citizen.

In this case I think you'd just have to keep secret the fact that you are going for your Hero certification as opposed to a business degree or zoological doctorate. Then once you graduate, assuming you don't care to keep your identity secret, you just announce 'j/k, who cares about opening an artisanal muffin bakery? I am Muffin Man!'

I'm going to tweak my background to reflect all this updated information. Won't change much, but it'll make more sense most likely.
