the danger of teams

Teams are a dangerous thing to have.  Like ensembles of all kinds.

it's not just that the team brings the danger of lacking focus, though that's a big one.  Main characters are not the only way to unify the story, but they work extremely well, which is why they are overwhelmingly the most popular.  Uniting the teammates in purpose is hard enough.  Uniting them in motivation is extremely implausible and rapidly leads on to the next problem. . . .
