No matter in what way, as long as you are the one that inhabits these powers, you are behind the steering weel. That means that you are responsible for what the outcome will be. Though, it doesn't stop the weak part from being important to weather the "story" end as a success story or not.
That you may say is the official version of it. As we all know; theory is one thing; real life something quite different. The bottom line in this can be that we ALL have some degree of responsibility. Whether you are rich or poor; resourceful or not. When it comes to things like this, we are equal.
