Nobility of characters

The endurance of those tropes and ideas, the universal attraction of such figures, reflects the search of the human heart to connect with God; every person has an in-born knowledge of what a perfect "hero" like Christ must be, and the love of fantastic stories speak to fallen man's search for that better ideal and world. -Hal
Which is why it's such a travesty when heroes of modern fiction are crassly commercialized, not commercialized per se, but when hands take over, and the icon acts "out of character," doesn't keep the heroism, idealism, and nobility of character, that makes all "powers" meaningless.

Of course, increasingly, it seems, few can even write a compelling drama, much less craft an inspiring heroic character.
