Hello everyone and thanks for taking the time to read this over. Thank you also for any replies! I'm here to ask yet another question about the story I'm still working on when I have the time. Its a futuristic story that takes place mainly on a ship far from home searching for ancient technology or various other items to assist in an on going war. One of these things happens to be my main character. The problem? Well I need my main man to be kind of over powered if you will. The problem is I don't want him to seem like I'm just duplicating a bunch of other ideas. For example I wanted to have him in a highly advanced suit that generates a personal shield. I thought after that though, "Nah, its to much like Halo." and I also wanted his body to be biologically enhanced. Once again I'm just seeing myself copying Mass Effect and things of that nature like the Biomen featured in Vampire Hunter D novels. I'm kind of at a loss by this time. The only thing I've really given him that no one else seems to have taken is that tons of data has been uploaded into his brain. It ranges from extremely advanced tactical information to information on ships of other cultures and even advanced piloting skills. Things of that nature. Should it be capable of being used for warfare in this time period its in his brain. Hand to hand combat styles, weapons you name it and its in there. I wanted him to be a type of anti-ship component who gets thrown into space during combat to invade and sabotage enemy vessels one by one so that they basically blow up after he's escaped to the next ship. Hence the shield suit and the bio enhancements. I just want more originality, but I'm at a loss. Any ideas on places I might look that aren't related to another story/game or are these usually fairly common things in futuristic stories?
