In the current story I'm trying to plot out, the protagonist currently looks like she is going to want to avoid the call to adventure as much as physically possible. I'm currently stuck between having the plot focus on her avoidance of the call and the reprecussions of this, or finding a good enough justification for why she would accept the call, and was wondering if I could have some external input. For context, the main character is a retired superhero who has been called by the government to become a superhero once more. When she was younger, she signed a document with them saying that she would finish a cumulative number of years at their service before retiring; because she left before this time was over, she has several years of work left to do that the government now wants to get from her. She doesn't want to return because her previous work left her mentally scarred, suffering from what could very well be PTSD, and with multiple body scars. She also felt that the government did little to aid her after her retirement, which when added to the treatment of her father after he returned from the Vietnam war makes her rather distrusting of the government. Her parents support her in this mostly, except that her father still has a sense of nationalism that makes him want to encourage her to do their country proud and make a difference in the world. My current thoughts on options are: She is pressured into working for the government, and the plot partially deals with her trying to justify her actions/find a way to get out of the government's control She runs away from her issues, resulting in her being pursued by the government and/or the threat they want her to stop becoming an issue in her personal life She finds a reason to willingly want to return to being a superhero The request to join the government looms over the story, with it being more of an open invitation than a demand. In this way, the story focuses on other aspects of her life, or her dealing with superhuman threats whilst being at odds with the government & government funded superheroes. Any thoughts would be really appreciated.
