So here's the current situation: Garnet is pretty much the local BA, Pearl is a loving but competent Gem, Amethyst is something of a jokester but also competent, and Steven is, by comparison, foolish and incompetent (although he does do things right sometimes). Will this ever change, do you think, or will the show stay close to the same track it's already on? I'm afraid that the creator, Rebecca Sugar, will make sure that Steven remains the noticeably weakest member of the group for the show's duration. Which makes sense. Shows created by men often make their female characters weak, so Rebecca may want to do just the opposite with her show. I'm really just not interested in following the show if the main character doesn't really progress or develop into something more serious. Thoughts?
