With all her assets, her Omega psychic skills and her ability to switch her gorgeous body into diamond, she is clearly among the most powerfuls mutants. She is not overrated in my opinion, on the contrary would like to involve her more in the main stories. However, I think she has to remain selfish and arrogant, so I don't wish her to become nicer, she is more appealing in her lascivious slutty bitch attitude. Do not look her for any excuse to have stolen Cyclop to Jean, as the White Queen she is, her main motivation is to prove to herself she is the best... and she obviously is. - Toshin

This guy could easily be the single most overrated character in all of fiction, never mind comic books. He's about as generic as they come and could easily be replaced by any other tough guy character in any other comic/ fictional piece at any given time ( and vice versa) without making any real difference to the story. He's also the epitome of trying to have your cake and eat it as he lazily straddles the line between cartoonish/ memorable and realistic/ bland and it all comes down to the giant skull on his chest. Most character designs can be messed around with quite a lot ( and even completely changed in some cases) without really damaging the appeal or point of the character ( Hell, they dumped the costume for Wolverine entirely on some occasions but it was still Logan) but you remove the giant skull from his design or alter his overall look in any noticeable way ( mostly black with white in the middle), then you realize how underdeveloped and unremarkable Frank Castle is.
