So, you've got a character who's capable of giving Kryptonians/Daxamites, the Silver Surfer and Mister Majestic a run for their money, power-wise. Their powers are virtually unlimited, and in the story, they're . . . getting cats out of trees. Or talking to kids about bike safety. WHAT??

In short, a character whose threats are inversely proportional to their power level. Do We Have This One?? If not, examples as they arrive.

  • I could be remembering it wrong, but the live-action version of {{Shazam!}} was like this sometimes (anybody wanna help me remember)?
  • Squirrel Girl. Word of God is the reason she wasn't available during World War Hulk is she was busy fighting Galactus.
