Kryptonite Factor – Z to A Blog Challenge
Picture Captain Jack Sparrow on the deck of the Black Pearl. The Kraken is moments away from tearing his beloved ship apart.
It is a grand sight; his chin lifted his back straight, gazing into death. But would it affect us if he hadn’t fought his self-centered ego along the way?
Conflict – our protags must have faults. They must have kryptonite to overcome. It can be physical bumps in the road like a battle that leaves them bloody and crawling away to recover. Or it can be mental.
All superheroes must have imperfections, just like us. Without faults, there are no markers to judge them by and no connection.
