Those are great too, though. Characterization-FILLED. I could read a series
that was all that.

See, I disagree. I feel like that's just saying that no one deserves power;
that the only useful thing you can do with power is use it to contain other
people's power.  I think that a good person could do a lot of good in the
world with such powers that wouldn't necessarily involve punching people
*or* doing the vague, "searching for America"-style kvetching that was the
Bronze Age's way of dealing with it *OR* doing the "we gotta be PROACTIVE
and take over America!" way of doing it that's the Modern Age's. I think
you could, y'know, actually act like real-life good people do, and use your
power in much the same way they do! What a shock, eh?

Indeed, this sort of thing is a huge influence on my writing... moooooostly
the parts that I haven't actually published yet, mind. >->; But it had a
