** On the subject of the Franchise/MarvelCinematicUniverse, Loki is a villainous example. He's often overshadowed by [[DumbMuscle Thor's]] combat prowess, but he is a very formidable warrior in his own right, able to take down multiple assailants in seconds with only a dagger.

genetics. He single-handedly prevents the Third World War with some quick thinking and telepathy; he blows up the vessel which was commandeered by the Hellfire Club through a Soviet officer on another warship. Later, he [[spoiler:holds a telepathic link in order to immobilise Shaw while Magneto pushes a coin through Sebastian's skull. Charles feels ''everything'', but he doesn't let go of the connection despite the agony he experiences.]]
** Hank [=McCoy=] earned his [=PhD=] (presumably in engineering and a biology-related field) from Harvard at the age of 15, as established in ''Film/XMenFirstClass''. When he's in his blue, furry Beast form, he's blessed with SuperStrength, and in ''Film/XMenDaysOfFuturePast'', he's capable of defeating Magneto--not even an adamantium-less Wolverine was able to lay a single scratch on the metal-manipulating mutant.
