Clothing styles are going to change.
Reporting: Describing what is happening.
Besides, as the Devil noted, destroying the world would mean giving up the entertainment provided by reality shows and CNN news.
Then he will kill all who refuses to accept his way, a new simulated reality where you are 100 percent subservient on the State. We are already almost there aren't we ever hear of GMO's?
Soon our food will not be replaced as well its already begun. Everything we were given by our creator will be taken, as we have chosen to give Lucifer the keys to our reality, in order to live forever and be lazy.
If you asked people 100 years ago if they could envision a world where no one was self sufficient and every replaced nature with reality television they would say laugh and say not possible, well unless Satan himself was responsible, they were religions, but not us... We are all just like you and know it all....
One has to do with the available space combined with designer expectations.
The second has to do with the target audience, and teenaged boys are impulsive fellows prone to over excitement. It's a long road from puberty to maturity, and a lot of changes in the adolescent brain occur.
It is a feedback loop. The zeitgeist informs the design and the design is part of the next iteration zeitgeist. When a more martial generation was needed, the media was tasked with creating that mindset, and the boys (and some girls) went off to war and their children were encouraged to play games which saw their role models in a strong positive light, but another segment was shown the non-violent path as an intercession to try and diffuse that propaganda (I'm hawkish, BTW, just laying it down). Then after the gentler path reached its peak appeal, the violent games were released for the next generation and the cash-cycle went round again in time for the next war cycle which is synchronised with it, but intentionally out of phase. Neither the buyers/players nor the troops are to blame, just cultural benchmarks in the unfurling timeline.
That said, I always prefer a clever player or group out-thinking the obvious confrontation scenario. :D
Anyways. A magic system also effects how (and if) technology exists.
Why invent engines or gunpowder if magic exists ?
answer : magic is limited or unreliable.
It also is the reason why the society is shaped like it is.
Are mages feared or respected ?
Are they the ruling class ?
And if they aren't then what is stopping them ?
The rules/guidelines for magic also apply to the superhero genre for obvious reasons.
And finally remember :
"advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic"
ie : any futuristic setting with technology will have to follow similar rules and guidelines.
Cybernetics are one of those disruptive technologies that will make or break a setting depending on how rational their use is.
Just an idea, really, and aint it about time such a movement started?
Who do you meet?
Where do you meet them?
What is their attitude?
What is their nature?
What are they pursuing?
How do they see you?
How do you see them?
Do you have something they want?
Do they have something you want?
Is negotiation an option?
How broke are you?
How broke are they?
How black and white is the world?
There are likely more.
