Protagonists are the Heroes of the story. They're relatable, nice, and have a genuine desire to do the right thing. They're the character most like you. That's why they are so boring! Forget goody-two shoes. Fans want characters who are Badass and are morally ambiguous or in other ways less like a normal guy. Example: Han Solo is much more popular than Luke Skywalker with fans and Prince Zuko is, for the most part, is more popular with fans than Aang and, in some cases, fans want him to end up with Katara instead of Aang.
