I did this for this game when I tried running it in Play-By-Post on RPG.net, and it helped me a lot in integrating the PCs into the world:
When you make your character, think up two (2) NPCs who are relevant to his or her backstory. Ideally one of them should be a superhero or supervillain type who could qualify as your own character's nemesis or chief rival, but the other can be anyone or anything that seems appropriate. Sidekicks, love interests, best pals, pets, whatevs.
By doing this, you'll guarantee us some more story hooks to play with, offer a spin on the setting, let me know what you're into, and just make my job a little easier.
Jason Corley's given a great example already for his guy Gemini, so check out his character page.
