Misused (new crowner 12/2/13): Necessary Drawback get usage counts
- Does the fictional universe make a difference for whether a normal human is good or bad at an attribute, or are normal humans always bad?
- Does Fights Like a Normal make a character "good" in any attribute?
- Where do you draw the line in the X-Men story for each of the three attributes? Who must they be stronger than in order to be "Powerful"? Who must they be faster than to be good at "Speed"? Who must they be tougher than to be "Durable"?
2) I've always been under the impression that anybody who is forced to fight like a normal (not the Willfully Weak types) does so because their abilities just don't measure up, but they definitely have something that helps them out, so I'd put them in "Bad at the three, undefined (in this case good) at something else".
3) The line I would draw in X-Men is somewhere significantly superior to even the best humanity has to offer. If you'd asked me those three subquestions 7 years ago, I'd be able to answer, but these days, I can't really remember any but the more famous or memorable X-Men (Magneto, the prof, Wolvie, Cyclops, Mystique, Juggernaut).

- lays out the most recurring builds in the simplest terms.
- Defines builds as foils to other builds

- Leonardo is relatively fast, strong, and defensive, and because he spends the most time training he's useful in almost any combat situation - Jack of All Stats
- Raphael is always shown to be physically the strongest overall and is who is called on when an enemy proves to be really defensive or a heavy object needs to get moved - Mighty Glacier
- Michelangelo is the fastest and most agile - Fragile Speedster - they don't call him to take point fighting, but they do call on him to be a diversion or keep enemies occupied,
- Donatello is shown to be the worst fighter but can hold the line until others can back him up especially because his staff grants him range and his intellect let's him figure out the opponents strategies - Stone Wall, even though as a Ninja he's not incapable of fighting offensively it's just not his specialty. Raph and Mike are better at their respective roles, Leo can do anything because he trains the most, and Don is probably better off hacking computers or disarming bombs than fighting anyway.
- Splinter is a Lightning Bruiser / Master of All because he trained the turtles and still surpasses them all when he decides to fight.
You need to Get Known to get one of those.
