superheroes and dialog

My superhero stories have a lot of talk.

It is the logical consequences of characters have a conundrum that they must solve before they actually can use those superpowers to good purpose.

And it may just be a small sample size. But after a few pages of talk inter-spaced with some actions, it get noticeable when writing.

(Hmmm. Another story I'm working on has a lot of talking, but having characters tell stories does not have the same effect.)
