  • Sometimes it's hard to identify, Riley a Mary Sue? She butts in on canon events, takes away some of the glory from other characters (think of the 4 different times she took Hiro's place in thinking about inventing and using the microbots), gets a lot of focus from the other characters, gains a superpower and is developing a martial art! I know in universe we have to bring her up to power if she's going to be working with the BH 6, but do you think it's too much?

She's also doing it by accident (in-story) and is more or less Hiro's "muse", bumping him along a path.

How well does it match the trope?
