Yeah me too. One of the things that I don't like about the relaunch of Doctor Who is that they have added this element to the show by making him the last of the Timelords and a living legend that everyone seems to know about. Don't get me wrong I love all Doctor Who but one of the things that really grabbed me about the old series was that The Doctor was always just an average member of his own race. Some of the things he could do may seem amazing to us but whenever he interacted with his own people or other aliens it was clear that he was seen as average and he used that to his advantage but not seeming to be a threat. It also made him relateable. In most Sci-fi the heroes are either chosen ones or a hand picked team of the best of the best, in Doctor Who the heroes were just average people mostly thrown together by chance, The Doctor only finished Timelord high school on his second try and even then he only got by with a 51% average, he didn't even know his people's greatest enemy when he first met them. This was a complete inversion of what we normally see and it makes me sad that they undid it.
One of the big reasons I think the last two Spiderman movies failed is that unlike the first three they tried to add this chosen one stuck to Peter Parker's background by having the whole back story with Oscorp and Peter's parents instead of just making him an average guy who is only special because of what he chooses to do with his powers. I think it came off as cliched and people couldn't relate to this Peter Parker as well as the last one.
I really hope this cliche dies in a ditch soon and we can get some movies about average people standing up. It shouldn't be the hero's birth that makes him a hero or fate, it should be the choices he or she makes that makes them a hero.
