So I was thinking with these various threads where you get heroes/villains abilities.

People go at it like it will be as good for them as it is for the names but I don't think that's an accurate assessment.

Black Axe
Crimson Commando
Red Skull
? (Chick from SHIELD's "Super" Agents)

Probably others I'm definitely either not remembering or don't know.

Most of these peak human sorts don't do as well as Cap A despite basically having the same power set.

Rogue
Ms. Marvel
Iron Man
Daredevil

These 4 all have some kind of "early warning" sense but still managed to get hit on occasion, Rogue/Ms. Marvel definitely get hit more than Spider-Man despite having a "sixth sense" going for them and Iron Man's got various tech./sensors that don't manage to keep him from getting hit all the time.  And there are probably a few clones of Spider-Man that didn't near as well as he did for that.

Than consider how often "What If" characters under-perform as compared to their 616 counter parts. 

I mean; when it comes down to it for these threads.....if your not a name or central to the story, portrayal is fantastically different, you'll be luck to perform half as well as the big boys if that.

You may have a point but for me, the fun in these threads is coming up with good synergy between the teammates or opponents, whether it be of character/personality or of superpowers. I usually try to use the least powerful characters I can, or at least characters that are on the lower end of the power spectrum.

What are you saying? That in general What Ifs are less powerful? We know that. Explain yourself

Not just "What If's" but also people with the same power set as names that don't do as well.

Like when I mentioned Black Axe, Crimson Commando, Red Skull and that one SHIELD "Super" Agent.  All had access to peak human abilities, the SHIELD one both Cap's stats/HTH skills and got taken down pretty easily due to "lacking experience" that Cap had. 

It should be pointed out this was a highly trained SHIELD agent who had other agents helping her at the time.

Black Axe is an immortal peak human warrior who had been around 15, 000 years and still never did as well in combat as Cap.  Crimson Commando, peak human abilities, been around unfrozen since WW2 not even close to Cap A.

Or how various people with sensing abilities of one kind or another don't do near as well as Spider-Man, even when it's a "sixth sense" kind of deal.

I was throwing in "What If's" even further to point out how; if you were given the same abilities as a lot of these characters, you wouldn't come out near as good simply due to not being a name or a main character.

Portrayal drops immensely once that aspect gets taken out.

You would think so but most of the time people think a power set would work just as well with them as even secondary or "thirdary(?)" characters.

Your a complete and total no name without even half the chance or inclination to train, practice or get "experience".

And remember this is experience as compared to hard core soldiers, highly trained spies and heroes fighting since WW2 etc....and so on.

You'll be lucky to come off even a 1/4th as well as those guys.
