To quote this page: http://www.subreality.com/marysue/explain.htm

"a Mary Sue is a primadonna (usually but not always badly-written) who saps life and realism out of every other character around, taking over the plot and bending canon to serve his/her selfish purposes."

I believe David Weber's Honour Harrington books were modeled on C.S. Forester's Horatio Hornblower series, which are a damn good read.

Question: is the stainless steel rat or James Bond a Mary Sue because they are implausibly good at everything?
