My favourite thing about Prometheus aside from Josh’s performance is how they managed to make him threatening without dumbing down Oliver or his fighting skills. Physically he was never a problem for Oliver because realistically after all the ass kicking Oliver did over the years no one should best him in a fight at this point. Their entire fight in the finale is Oliver beating the shit out of him yet that didnt make him any less scary. They also did smart by not making him have magic or any superhuman power or even an army. He was just plain smart and psychotic and really devoted to his plan. Yes i would have liked more explanations about how he managed to do and know some things but other than that everything about him is just A+.
I was doing a kind of western steampunk vampire thing and both my characters have to go to some kind of meeting of the group leaders across the country and on that journey they find out that the vampires are trying to rebel against the humans. Do I have to have to have a reason why they're pretty decent at fighting? Do you have any suggestions as to how I can get them to that point? The boy just joined the group but the girl's been there for a long time and pretty good at defending herself
