Honestly, I didn't mind Red's heroism. Also, it's tough not to incorporate in the story. Seeing as the game's main character is pretty much a Superhero. It's hard to ignore that a young child, stopped Team Rocket, conquered all 8-gyms, defeated the Elite 4, and becoming the Champion of Kanto. And all of that was done in a few days.
E: Stall's right. Everyone has their own style, and their own likes and dislikes. I'm glad that people enjoy my writing as it is, but I want to make it better, if I can.
