Think about it. If 100 people were asked 'what's the most important thing in the world to you', what do you think their answers would be? The protection of the galaxy from radioactive space bugs? or to protect their kids from the bully at school? People care about their fully restored classic car in the garage, their spouse and kids, their dog, their stack of unpublished manuscripts under the bed. As important as the galaxy is it's not the first thing that comes to mind during a crisis. So why do so many writers write about such fantastical things?!!! gah, I don't get it.
And frankly, the hero of a book doesn't have to be a super hero. It can be a normal person with no powers or special artifacts or a prophecy foretelling their destiny. The sheer of mass of all that B.S makes it boring. Another cookie cutter over the top plot. Sorry but I'll pass. I'll save my money for something a little ...less.
