I always thought the superpowers/superhero genre and the supertechnolgy/futuristic genre were two different genres, but I notice that people still considered superpowers to be a part of the whole super-science or science fiction category. It doesn't matter how magical or fantastical some superpowers can be.
Speaking of magic. In my story, there are two power systems. One system is about superpowers, and the other system is about super technology. I thought superpowers would be a good stand-in for magic in my story. I wanted to replicate that classic magic vs technology narrative that some stories tell, only this time I replace magic with superpowers. My narrative in the story was a natural powers vs unnatural powers angle or something along those lines.
Then the title question came into my head. I thought maybe transhumanism and super technology would be a really broad category that would include superpowers, too. Would serum-based super soldiers overlap with mutants? If technology affects someone on a DNA or genetic level and gives them powers or abilities, would that person technically be a super-powered mutant?
Do superpowers and transhumanism overlap too much to have a story where both systems are on opposing sides?
