On this note, I agree with you. I suppose that one of the reasons I enjoy
the stories is because the general themes seem plausible. The idea of small
groups of rebels fighting against a gargantuan source of power has been the
focus of many authors over the years. (Look at the Star Wars trilogy.) Hey,
it works. But to grant the characters some types of special abilities would
really detract from the original intent of the characters' creators, making
them seem removed from reality. Meaning, we really couldn't relate to their
hopes and aspirations any longer. It might be funny if somebody wrote a
parody where all the FF were super-powered idiots. It has been done before,
turning heroes who are intelligent into idiots with all muscle and no
mentality. But to make them this way permanently would do a great
disservice, IMHO. Just my thoughts.....
