You know what?
I totally love how Asemu - When he was the ONLY pilot not incapacitated by Girard Spriggan - did absolutely nothing.
Flit: "Aaargh!" Fram: "Ugh!" Zeheart: "Ow!" Kio: "Uwaaaa!" Asemu: "Huh?"
Yeah. He could've won the war right then, and...Did nothing.
I literally can't see how he can outthink telepathic enemies through sheer force of will. It's a cool thing, but it makes no sense.
Okay, how about this. How many of you are Halo fans. How would you feel if sometime during the upcoming Forerunner Trilogy. A regular UNCS soldier was introduced that was shown to be fighting on par with the Master Chief. A highly trained Bio and Cyberneticly enhanced Super Soldier with Decades of Combat experience; Every Single one of you would call "BULLSHIT!". What made the Spartan Super-Soldires special was that they did what even the ODST(Orbital,Drop,Shock Troopers) the Baddest Assess of UNCS Military couldn't! If a regular UNCS Marine through "HARD WORK AND GUTS!" could achieve the same feats as the Spartans; then there would be no point to having them in the story.
You want to know who the True Badass Normal
of GEN-3 was Seric Abis! He beat Godom Tyneham by outsmarting him! Not Shonen Rage! Or Anti-Psychic powers. He out thought him! Seric was Sherlock Holmes in a Mobile Suite; that man I cheered for and accepted his victory with little question.
Asem Asuno through sheer outrage gained the unexplained ability
to outperform X-Rounders who were shown to possess Super Reflexes
via Combat Clairvoyance
. Which he conveniently lost for a little while when he tried to fight SID and could only slow it down; because of his familiarity the SID's attack patterns, which is a believably reason for him not getting smacked down.
Being second was the defining element of Asem Asuno's character.
He was the child of Flit's second choice.
He was the second choice Romary Stone, she wanted Zeheart.
Because of his failure manifest X-Rounder abilities. Can't truly take up his father's mantel. Or go toe to toe with his rival.
If you want to have a normal man as your Hero then follow through with it. When it comes
times for him to take down the Superhuman threat. You either give the man powers of his own(Flit) or you have him win as normal man(Seric). Don't half ass it buy giving him powers with out giving him powers e.i. the Super Pilot Schtick.
