What you can learn from plagiarizing superheroes...
Superhero stories are super fun, but definitely give some mixed signals. Yes, you are supposed to do the right right thing (protect the innocent, stop the bad guys), but almost all the heroes were either born with special powers, had a crazy accident give them powers, or magical things happen to make you powerful.
Maybe the masses are supposed to be the archers and martial artists of the the superhero world who through hard work participate with big guns (the aliens, gods, monsters) who are the wealthy and extremely gifted in our world?
I guess the underlying message is that regardless of what you have, or how you got it, it's what you choose to do with it make you a hero or villain.
