The 3 elements of a SUPERHERO story are:
1) The hero of your tale must have a special power—even if it’s just a mission to be great or do good.
2) The hero must be opposed by a nemesis of equal or greater force, who is the “self-made” version of the hero.
3) There must be a curse for the hero that he either surmounts or succumbs to as the price for who he is.
