Starring Ruco Chan (陳展鵬), Natalie Tong (唐詩詠), Joel Chan (陳山聰), Sammy Sum (沈震軒), and Tiffany Lau (劉穎鏇), TVB superhero drama I’ve Got the Power <超能使者> completed its run to positive reception as netizens praised its emotional message.
In the drama, the characters played by Ruco, Natalie, Joel, Sammy and Tiffany find themselves developing superpowers. While the five friends work hard to seek justice, they come head-to-head with the show’s final antagonist played by Jimmy Au (歐瑞偉).
In the final battle, the heroes sustained heavy injuries in their fight and Sammy’s character sacrificed himself to save his friends. While the heroes ultimately defeated the final antagonist, the heroes overused their powers and dealt with the consequences.
While it appears that Ruco and Natalie’s character would get their happy ending, their relationship was cut short when Natalie’s character gets hit by a car and dies in front of Ruco. Hoping to save her, Ruco’s character used his power to turn back to the time before they got their superpowers. However, the move proved to be too much; Ruco’s character aged rapidly and died.
Although the drama closed with a sad ending, many netizens praise the drama for its messaging – “Not everything is possible even with superpowers.” Even as the characters gain the ability to be invincible or to control time, there is a corresponding price that makes the character vulnerable.
While some netizens criticized that Natalie’s death was a stretch, they agree Ruco’s attempt to save everyone is in line with his character and fitted the ending for the series.
