Ionia has started a discussion on the Prodigy of Rainbow Tower Goodreads site. The question is:
Why must we compare in fantasy?
We’ve all heard the ‘can this guy beat this guy’ or ‘that guy is like this guy because of this’. For example, a female warrior gets the Xena treatment. Most halfling heroes are either Frodo or Bilbo in people’s eyes. Why does this happen so much in fantasy?
