Add more superpowers. Found this series more titillating, pandering than interesting.
The same complaint about Generals all be crazy in Hollywood can be made by Supes. Was it so bad when Batman or Superman wanted to do good?
Suffers from the Plato's Stepchildren problem. If superpowers are a genetic drug, everyone would have them. Everyone.
Once the sequence of creating a chemical compound is discovered, it's discovered. Unless the magic element of Balonium is required. Was there something wrong with some people simply being special?
Midi-chlorians were microscopic, intelligent life forms that originated from the foundation of life in the center of the galaxy, and ultimately resided within the cells of all living organisms, thereby forming a symbiotic relationship with their hosts. The Force spoke through the midi-chlorians, allowing certain beings to use the Force if they were sensitive enough to its powers.
Certain Beings of course meaning whatever is convenient. Not one in a billion so billions upon billions in the stars. Not one in Gazillion so only one or two. If we need a Force power dude, we have one. IF we need a super power comic book character, add one.
