Ever feel like a thwarted superhero?
We superheros can deflect meteors, destroy supervillans, and do all sorts of other amazing things. But once every couple of episodes there's a moment where the heroine has to handle some monstrous thing herself.
She says "please, let me handle this."
And the superhero, for all his might and ability, has to just stand back while the heroine deals with something beyond his control.
