They: Human? Adult? Male/Female/Both? Gender Relevant? Real? How many? 2,3,4,list of numbers...
He: Ditto? (obviously the gender...)

Is "he" one of "they"?

Is the "something special" tangible? One item? A constituent part of "it all"?

Do they have a something each or do they share one between them?

is the something a talent/ability? a priviledge? of monetary value? knowledge? something giving them power or influence? magical? does this exist in the real world?

do they know they have something special? does he know he has it all? do they know he has it all? does he know that they don't have it all? (does he know that they know, and so forth...)

do they all know each other? do they resent he for having it all?

Does he have extra responsibility? An extra task to perform? Is it something physical about him?

Would it be generally preferable to have "something special" as opposed to having "it all"? Does he have the something they all have, plus something else? Do all the ohers have the same something?

Are there other "teams" that share the common trait?

Is the "team" famous?

To recap:
Team of 4?
One special known as "He"
Three not so special.

Do the three not so special share the same trait?
Does "He" have the traits of all the not so specials?

Is "He" famous? he is not
Is the "team" famous? no

To recap:
Team of 4? yes
One special known as "He"
Three not so special. all special, but he is even more special than the others

Do the three not so special share the same trait? yes, as I said, they all have something in common
Does "He" have the traits of all the not so specials? traits? how many? :-) no, he just shares the same trait with them, plus.... something more!

Is it advantageous to them that he has the something more? Do they all benefit? Does he benefit more than them? Do they benefit financially?
Is his "something more" useful in any other context than with them as a team?
Is the common trait something which can be cultivated or something with which one is born? The something more?

SPOILER.
Four team mates have this trait in common: their names are Carl Lincoln, Freddy Bush, Marc Carter and Gerald Ford. This is what makes this last one so "special" among the "specials".
