Super heroes have always had a code of ethics and conduct they go by. This is derived from critical thinking skills as to how and why one has received super powers and what to do with them. .There are certain responsibilities a super hero would have to family and friends and a secret identity is one of them for many reasons.
In the television series, “No Ordinary Family”, the family especially the mom and dad have made several classic blunders that not only will put them in danger but their loved ones as well.
Here is a list of classic blunders that the family did in episode one:
Number 1: Jim tried to catch a bullet shot by his friend before he knew if it may have been shear luck the first time or not when he caught one in the police station. Another mistake was Jim asking a friend to shoot him and maybe having his friend run the risk of being an accessory to murder. The other was letting some one else know your abilities.
Number 2: Jim the dad jumped off a building before he knew if he had the ability to fly, jump or whatever. This was kind of backwards a super hero usually discovers their talents as they go from the ground up. What would happen if the Thing or the Invisible Girl of the Fantastic four thought they could fly and just jumped off a building?
Number 3: Jim and Stephanie both disclosed their super powers to third parties putting their own lives as well as their children’s and other family members in jeopardy. Super heroes always cherish their super identities and for this reason usually wear a mask.
The reason’s for hiding one’s identity are simple. One not only runs the risk of being dissected by the government but also runs the risk of someone kidnapping another family member to get to you. Secret identities are a must for anyone wanting a private life especially when they are fighting crime.
Number 4: The family should have took an oath of secrecy together as well as an oath to use their new found powers for good. This would have been a good ideal since the two teens may lose it with their powers and use them for mischief.
These are just some blunders that I have noticed there are probably more so keep watching.
