As a child I was fascinated with a particular television show: Dragon Ball Z. I looked past the poor pacing, 90's style animation, and lack of storyline because I loved the concept of being able to shoot balls of energy from my hands and flying around at supersonic speeds. Whenever a hero needed to get stronger, he would undergo a harsh training regimen. These training sessions usually took place on planets with 10 times the gravity of earth or something ridiculous like that.
