perhaps only from my perspective, but it seems like magic is really restrained.
why do you think that is?
Real magic is more subtle than that. It has more to do with controlling potentialities through anticipation and perception than it does with controlling electromagnetism. I think a lot of the stories about people gaining and using super powers were exaggerations designed to get foolish people off the track.
What do you want in life? Anything you want, magic can help you get. The trick, however, is that you have to be able to recognize it when you get it. And by the time you get it, you may not want it anymore.
The problem isn't with the magic. It's with your own expectations.
