comment How do I round out a powerful character?
Superman is boring to some, but not to others. It's not the measure of the personal invincibility that makes a character interesting or not; a character can be a loser and still be totally boring. It's a matter of the conflicts and characterization. Invincibility makes it harder to introduce growth and more human characteristics as much of that is based on the presence of or overcoming weaknesses. But its not insurmountable- the effort should be on giving voice to that human quality within him. Physical weaknesses are one outlet, but I'd not focus on that as the only outlet.

I wouldn't characterize Shadowrun as a Dungeons & Dragons spinoff, any more than Harry Potter is a Lord of the Rings spinoff.
