    Winning a fight is a nice starting point. lol
    Not being a meathead who needs Mystique to hold a leash is another
    Showing some competence * skill that you think someone over 150 would have.

    The badass versions were written by Jolley, Tieri, Brisson, Hama, for example. I don't see what's not to get. Same for Omega Red. If they're supposed to be badass or dangerous villains, stop jobbing them at ever turn & writing them to be incompetent meatheads.

    Imo villains need to win sometimes to be more effective. And if they lose fine, but make defeating them an actual effort. Not something the hero does in 5 sec. with only mild annoyance to show for the confrontation. This is an issue with MANY X-Men villains and why the Rogue Gallery seems so pathetic with the only truly dangerous villains being Sinister, Apocalypses, Selene, Emplate, and Mystique due to petness.

    Omega Red was once a more dangerous character established in the 90's who has been rag-dolled effortlessly in recent years.

    To be honest though, Sabretooth is annoyance-tier. Mystique too, really, so here's hoping they give Raven something to do besides really, really dumb schemes.

    I will be interested to see the follow through on this, where Marvel never again publishes a story set in the main MU where any of these things are insuperable problems. The next volume of Moon Knight where he's no longer split into multiple personalities (other than possibly a confirmed spiritual Khonshu), especially. Anything less would be lazy, after all.

    I doubt Marvel would buck the neurodiversity trend. Nobody is going to force everyone to take drugs that normalise them in order to conform to neurotypical standards.
