    Well, she should be powerful but I think the skill part is important as well. She shouldn't just be strong, she should be able to see how her enemy moves and change the ground in a way that advantages her. Her claws shouldn't just be strong enough to hurt Superman, she should be capable of perfectly hurting a body part to handicap her enemy

    Wonder Woman is one who is a warrior and who knows many fighting styles, including divine weapons. If Cheetah is to rival her, she needs to rival her in skills because she already kinda does in power

    Cheetah shouldn't have to be as powerful as Wonder Woman -- and it's stupid for DC to try to make her a physical match. Lex Luthor is not match for Superman physically -- yet, he remains Superman's arch enemy. In the Golden Age, Cheetah had no powers whatsover. It's her machinations that should cause conflict. WW is always going to be superior to Cheetah -- there is not need to make her an anti-Wonder Woman.

    Except Lex is, by way of his genius, able to build weapons and armor, such as his infamous battle suit. He has been shown to be a physical threat to Superman time and time again.

    Admittedly, Superman's weaknesses to kryptonite and red solar energy as well as his inability to see through lead certainly help Lex in this regard, but his money + his intellect = building physical threats.

    Storyline have also granted Luthor the power he needs, such as the current 'Year of the Villain' where he is now the 'ultimate apex predator.'

    Honestly, I think giving her more powers would be a good way to make people stop seeing her as just a woman with cat powers and elevate her threat level

    I have this ideia of putting more focus on the hunter angle, like stealth, poisoning, tracking,traps,that kind of stuff

    Which is why her biting others and turning them into her minors is a good idea. Her having more predator cat powers is good way.

    I have to disagree with you there.The whole cheetah bite thing puts more emphasis into the werecat instead of the divine hunter that I thing should be the central point of cheetah powers

    Casual fans and the general public are always going to see her as "just a woman with cat powers" though, because...well...her codename is CHEETAH and she's a giant humanoid cat. So what else is she going to be to most folks at first appearance?

    It's really no different than casuals just thinking of Joker as a "clown". Yeah, there's much more to his character than that, but that doesn't keep good writers from SHOWING that in the way that they write him.

    I agree with that, but would point out that that's not giving her more POWER, just making her more SKILLED. I'm all for that, because it would mean that writers would have to write her better. Also---just like Diana---her skills as a hunter (or in Diana's case, a warrior) would help her better utilize and better display her powers, instead of just lazily writing her as a powerhouse and a threat simply BECAUSE of her powers.
