Exactly! I agree. That is what I was saying. All superpowers come with limitations and costs of some sort. Magic does not come with some extra price or dire fate tacked on. At best it only takes expending energy and concentration like any power.

I wanted to address a very important and somewhat annoying subject, the "Price of Magic." Not that I do not like that in the story is really a great dramatic effect, but it's more a part of the plot for a drama than a rule usually in the story. Type Once Upon a Time is the series I know that most uses that phrase, but in the end it's just that, a dramatic effect, more for the great spells than something actually used.

The Price of Magic is something that at one time became very popular, because Type Magic can do anything, so it needs something that can limit and Price was great not to place implicit restrictions, which could limit and contradict the plot. Possessing something that makes everything easier on the spot makes things boring. You have to work hard in science, the powers have limits .... Price has become popular, but it's not something absolute, like Harry Potter, Magic works by manipulating only at a slight fundamental level and sometimes it's just an energy expenditure that happens to any superpower.

Exactly! I agree. All superpowers come with limitations and costs of some sort. Magic does not come with some extra price or dire fate tacked on. At best it only takes expending energy and concentration like any power.
