I normally take the attitude of most writers, especially when it comes to
fanfiction: If the question isn't raised in the course of the story, ignore
it! ;) That said, I usually think other fictional settings make better
points for comparison rather than our earth ...

Well, the enforcer's guns have been updapted to rays, but you might just
count that in with my mention of "enforcer upgrades" above. I would imagine
they've spent more time developing weapons because they live in a more
day-to-day violent society (at least city-wise) than we do, but all other
tech stuff seems at our level.
Actually, I think MK City has about the same level of tech as Gotham City
does in Batman: The Animated Series. The details of the two are rather
similar if you consider the car designs and the existence of mobsters and
organized crime in both cities. Both seem to have oddly high tech stuff for
villains to steal, but do not reflect the same level of technological
development in more mundane areas. Typical enforcer choppers and jets don't
even seem as well armed as our typical military counterparts ...
BTW, everybody, some new fanfic *no one's* seen before is up on my site.
Check out "The Hero's Home." It's one of the greatest fanfic's I've seen,
though it hasn't been finished yet.
Mwa-ha-ha-ha-ha, that's because I have yet to unleash my greatest
masterpiece!!! With any luck, the final draft of the first part will be
ready by December when I finish my exams ... in the meantime, what's the
address of that web site? :)
