Hero Patron Pools?

Reposting a still relevant old-forum post:

I know (hope) that Heroic PPPs are going to be coming down the line at some point, so I thought it would be fun to toss around a few ideas on what they might look like. Interestingly enough, there are a few complications that villains don’t have to deal with.

First of all, Arachnos has such a clear chain of command, the Patrons make perfect sense being who they are. Heroes though… who exactly should the four be? Random picks from the Surviving Eight? What about power themes? What thematic voids are present in the APPs that a Patron Pool might fill? Below are my suggestions (yes, one of them is Woodsman), but what do YOU think they would be? What do you think of the ones presented?
