The True Hero is Flawed

The True Hero is Flawed. The true test of a champion is not whether she can triumph, but whether she can overcome obstacles–preferably of her own making–in order to triumph. A hero without a flaw is of no interest to an audience or to the universe, which, after all, is based on conflict and opposition, the irresistible force meeting the unmovable object.
