I've never been a great fan of superheroes (they didn't hold any particular appeal for me in my childhood for example), but I like the potential in the idea of them to tell big stories with big ideas.
A few years ago I idly thought it would be great to write a story where the world is full of superheroes, but they're all women. What changes would that bring about? I like working on female characters and to my mind it would be a chance to redress the extreme fetishisation of female superheroes in comics to this day with grounded, fleshed-out (and fleshed-in) characters.
