123 Ideas for Character Flaws - Writers Write When you're creating characters for novels, short stories, comics, and games, you have to make sure they have flaws. Nobody is interested in perfect people. They tend to be boring.

Also, they have Batman, and the DC Universe is darker than the petty Marvel one.
