I'm writing a science fantasy, and I'm afraid that the protagonist has too many superpowers.
Here's the concept: The protagonist is Berta Newton, an isekai counterpart of Issac Newton. She is the first angel to be born on the earth, and teaching Classical Mechanics to humans is her mission. She has a convenient way of teaching, namely some magics for demonstrating concepts of the branch of science.
The problem is, I've endowed her with too many magics. To list them:
- Measuring physical quantities exactly (to demonstrate what physical quantities are)
- Applying force on an object remotely (to demonstrate what force is)
- Letting objects explode and to choose how far the debris will fly (to demonstrate the conservation of momentum)
- Letting objects collide and stick together (to demonstrate inelastic collision)
- Letting objects be slippery (to demonstrate friction-less situation)
- Summoning a sword that can slice through everything
- Letting her body to be amorphous (to demonstrate fluid mechanics)
- And worst of all, her body is indestructible by blunt weapons/blades/bullets/whatever physical.
So basically, I built a Mary Sue character. Yet I cannot just "confiscate" her magics, because they are crucial to demonstrate physics. If she were to act as the hero, there would be no villain that could even scratch her. So how can I pose this character safely? Should I at least confiscate the last magic listed above?
