Except, of course, that they're not similar in any way, manner, shape or form.
This is an extension of the world that Mark Gruenwald created long ago,
predating RS. Yes, it's a world that has not previously seen super heroes, but
that's just about any fictional universe before, say, Kal-El lands. The two
stories do not touch each other at any two contiguous points.

If someone is not doing right by you, and they want something from you, it's in
your best interests to get them to do right by you before you give them what
they want. It's about being a professional business person and living up to
agreements. I always honor mine, and tend to make sure others do the same. If
you hire a contractor to build you a home, and two thirds through reneg or
otherwise back off on the business arrangement, a reasonable person doesn't
expect the contractor to continue working anyway. The logic you employ is the
logic constantly used to screw writers. I don't work that way.
