This e-book companion program would have a configurable level of realism. It would insert plot-armor-breaking devices at appropriate places (entered there by a human, most such places can be found by skimming the book) in larger or smaller quantity (using a different color and bold font)as desired. Readers annoyed by heavy layers of plot armor could convert their annoyance to chuckles by having this program installed and activated.

Ain't Got Time to Bleed: Medical Reports on Hollywood's Greatest Action Heroes https://www.amazon....woods/dp/160887978X

       There's an existing hardcopy book consisting of a series of medical reports on the likely realistic condition of various Hollywood action heroes by the end of their adventures. I'll see if I can find the title.   

       As you can probably guess, many of them are dead and few of them are able to walk unaided.

       That's one thing I liked about the early Die Hard movies (hero was bleeding & injured & struggling), & didn't like about the newer Die Hard movies (hero was indestructible).

       Given infinite possibilities... infinite escape clauses present themselves.   

       Karma's a bitch.   

       Thank you, [Voice]; that was the one.
