These stories seem similar to me. The hero (or occasionally a heroine) may have too much power or control over other characters for the story to be interesting. Stories about Superman need super villains to provide reasonable conflict. This is not a big problem for short, mostly stroke, stories but for the longer story or series I like the author needs to follow a very fine line between Tarzan, capable of anything as lord of the jungle, and the character before having mind control, magical powers, or lamps with a genie who will provide unlimited wishes. Real people may not be as interesting as ones with power, but based on what most authors know, its easier to write about ordinary SOL readers or high school students than Kings and Emperors. Even without mind control or mastery of magic, there are some stories/characters that seem to never fail. They might get a million dollar wound, or even lose part of a leg, but there is no challenge they can't overcome in the next chapter, or at least a chapter before the story ends. Of course this ability to overcome may be the climax of the story, and often these are interesting to read.
I think one of the reasons I like Naked in School stories and the Swarm Cycle is that the characters are not all powerful, certain to control whatever they survey. Sometimes making it through the week, or to the pickup makes as satisfactory a story as conquering Earth, or the entire universe. I use a 5o ton crane to suspend disbelief, and mostly it does the job pretty well. There are some mind control and magic stories where the cable breaks under the strain.
