Pieced together from ancient legends by: David Morgan-Mar

The author writes:

In this reality superhero comics never became a thing, because superheroes were real, so people didn't see them as escapist in any way.

Instead they invented a whole different genre of people who didn't really exist: Pirates. Pirates (in this reality) were kind of outlaw sailors who attacked other ships to loot them for treasure. Pretty far-fetched, I know, but about on par with superheroes if you imagine they never really existed and you had to describe them to people.
