This is the problem I have with the D&D trailer. That's all we see. One side being incompetent, while the other does all the heroism. It's not funny, it's kinda insulting to the side they're trying to elevate. You're telling the audience that only they can be better, is if the other side is stupid or incompetent.We'll have to disagree on that. In the cases where you're talking about, I don't view the incompetence being a vehicle to make the other look more competent-
Exactly, my point. It's lazy.In a lot of these cases, from the outside looking in- the smarter person hasn't earned it. In the case with Captain Marvel, we know that Nick is younger. But he's already seen some shit- especially being in the war. But a lot of things he does are just stupid - not straight man stupid- just outright stupid. And it's done to give Carol and opening or to make her seem better. This is just lazy writing.
