    153. The city has been plunged into darkness! Can the heroes get to the bottom of this and make light shine again in the city?

    154. What happens when the heroes have unwillingly swapped bodies with their arch-enemies?

    155.) The sun's turning weird colors

    156.) The south is rising again and needs to be stopped

    157.) A supervillain whose theme is dirty limericks

    EDIT:

    158.) Similar to the infamous batman adventure "The Joker's Comedy of Errors" except that that villain has latched on to a non-dirty meaning of a different dirty word. Possible themes for their crime spree include: Donkeys, cats, roosters, snakes, female dogs, rifle stocks, 126 gallon casks, beavers, detectives, tabarnacles (Canada only), the aft decks of ships, and the letter "p"

    166- A villain has stolen all the world's supply of burritos. The heroes must not only uncover -how- he pulled off such a dastardly plot, but also if he's hiring, because "all-you-can-eat burritos" is a phenomenal work perk.

    169. A new burger restaurant has opened up. It has quickly gained popularity in city for their amazingly delicious burgers, and has opened five other locations across the city. But there seems to be something strange about the new fast food chain, and it is up to the heroes to figure out what it is.

    170. There is a giant amoeba loose in the city, and it seems to have an appetite for meat.

    171. Everybody in the city (except the heroes) have vanished! What is going on here?

    172. People are being abducted and returned, now possessing superpowers. The results seem harmless, but what's really going on?

    173. A new, extremely na´ve superhero possessing healing powers makes their debut fighting crime, just as the city's local crime boss has discovered that he's dying from terminal cancer.

    174. The heroes are transported into an alternate world where everyone without a superpower has been somehow phased out of reality.

    175. A magical accident swaps everyone's powers, and getting used to the results will take some doing.

    176. A corrupt wrestling federation is using some secret trick to dominate the competition with superpowered wrestlers. This wouldn't be a cause for concern if it was for mobsters suddenly gaining access to masked super beings in their ranks. It's up to you to infiltrate the wrestling ranks and unmask the ringleader of this operation! I mean, you already have a spandex costume...

    177. That time-traveling dastard, Mr. Gentle, has hand-raised 7 abducted children to destroy you. It's possible you can defeat the Gentle Childe, but is it possible to remove their hostile brainwashing as well?

    179. Somebody close to the heroes (like a friend, relative, boyfriend/girlfriend, or spouse) suddenly got superpowers! How will the hero respond when that person decides to become a superhero and rushes into dangerous situations?

    180. The heroes find themselves teleported to some kind of fairytale world. Will they find their way home? And will they answer the fairytale characters' calls for help?

    182) Now that the the Kremlin Gremlin is dealt with, there is nothing limiting Russian power. They got rid of all the corruption and blackmail so now they can use those resources to invade the countries next to them. Can you convince the Kremlin Gremlin to return to Russia before they take over all of Eurasia?

    184. A priceless artifact has been stolen, and the owner is offering a reward of a million dollars to anybody who returns it.

    185. The spirits of deceased supervillains pass their superpowers onto random recipients.

    186. An army of giant robots are taking over the city! Can the heroes put a stop to it? (What's wrong with using the classics?)

    187. Somebody's shadow somehow takes on a life of its own, and it is going around the city causing mischief. (For darker games, the living shadow might go around killing people).

    188. A priceless artifact, said to be capable of becoming a terrifyingly powerful weapon in the right hands, has been stolen from the local museum.

    189. Scientists have revived a cryogenically frozen hero from an era gone by- that era being the Cold War, and the newly-conscious superhero is still caught in the grips of Red Scare paranoia.

    190. A seemingly-unstoppable villain has hit the streets, completely obliterating any who cross their path. Another supervillain may have the power the heroes need to end the threat, but is the request they make in return too high a cost?

    191. At a city council meeting, a politician suffers a breakdown and is revealed to actually be a robotic decoy. How deep does this infiltration of the government go?

    192. Chemical spills near a hospital have given the newborns born there the potential to develop powers as they age, but an anti-mutant group is planning to raid the hospital and stop the possibility before it begins.

    193. Someone in the city has been murdered, but when the body subsequently disappears, nobody the heroes question can seem to remember the victim's name- or even that they existed at all.

    194. Another hero in the city has been framed for a crime, but the evidence is convincing enough that it might be real after all. Who do the heroes believe?

    202. Without warning, all the world's nukes vanish at once. Before the doomsday clock can be set back, however, the world comes under attack from mage-kings from another dimension, where magic rules supreme! Can you find a way to diffuse world war three?

    203.
    Mysterious levitating flesh-orbs start appearing in seemingly random locations throughout the world. You search through the usual suspects, but it turns out the villains have no idea where they're from either. Suddenly, at the worst possible time, the orbs rip open to reveal biomechanical monstrosities from beyond the depths of time! Can you destroy the obelisks, or will all worlds be consumed by a rolling tide of flesh?

    204. The flesh-orbs were chains, linking the world to the realm of the flesh-monsters: Orfilex, the Plane That Breathes. While destroying the orbs slows the invasion, it's all for naught if you can't cut off the invasion at the source: The massive Mind Of God, the thinking organ of this horrific world. By tethering yourself to an orb, you can ride it back to their homeworld and take the war to their doorstep! Of course, the Mind of God is fully mobile, wields immense destructive power, and is located in the heart of a plane that's both alive and activity hungering for human flesh. The world needs a hero, but this one may be beyond even you...

    205.
    While you were away from earth on the latest universe-ending crisis, an enterprising supervillain finally completed operation A.S.C.E.N.S.I.O.N, and has become God, or damn near it. Calling itself The Singularity, the villain has broken any resistance left, and everyone else has fled to dimensions far from your home: including yourselves. Let along defeating Singularity, can you even find a way back to earth?

    206.
    Sea levels are suddenly rising throughout the world, and strange temples filled with Deep Ones are emerging worldwide. It seems they ruled this earth once, in the devonian period, and they seek to rule it again by submerging the land beneath the waves! Can you stop this insidious plot to drown all who would breathe air?
