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.
