    I like in the movies that they didnt put the Captain in the lacky role and instead made it more a difficulty that Ironman was working out

    Have you read the book Grendel its from the monsters point of view and really kind of demonstrates that Beowulf is one of those classic to slay the monster you have to become a monster scenarios (he brutally sacrifices his own allies to find Grendels weakness)

    I think its easy to see Bruce as the mask that the Dark Knight uses he is too much engaged in the unreal I am a playboy philanthropist of questionable repute, for relationships to usually work.... Selena if he can be Bruce with her is not bad

    It is often acknowledged (regardless of details) that Robin and Alfred to a degree help keep Batman from going completely dark he is supposed to be on the edge because of his childhood tragedies... which Clark never had.

    Captain America has the same/similar moral fiber foundations, servant to humanity, concept going on... and sometimes he has been awfully close to the obedient lacky of "the man", but that was actively declared a mistake by later writers and even declared the character being CA was not actually...

    Ki is presented as magic so its debate worthy whether they belong in the group.

    Not clear what you mean ... say they add a real warlord... people who want that archetype might currently be playing battlemaster and taking the feats or similar the total caster and non-caster is not necessarily going to change much (unless the implementation is tempting more people)

    Yeh "nobody wants to play casters" is just obvious falsehood they just have a huge variety of them to play.

    Add up the percentage who are playing casters total?

    Never seen that in game ever either ... it sounds like a fairy tale. (attempts to make cleric more appealing gave us codzilla). My sons play group is entirely casters (one is a paladin) I think that "role" is one that suffered the most functionally in 5e ( the high level cavalier seems easier...

    Can you cite where there is any components of player authorship in 5e it seems an unsupported roll your own concept ( other than maybe I selected this feat at level 4 or this spell during level up therefor it happens that my character learns this thing to be clear that is more than in yee old...

    There is a tendency for combat to be detailed and resource elaborated and skill use ummm vague kind of like to have that flexible detail be universal indeed.

    Sure but the devil is in the details. Do you always roll for combat and how much do your roll is the question? (the situation just mentioned was a narrated combat without more than one decision points). It does not have to be binary ON/OFF I was thinking of variable detail starting with the...
