@professorrespect: It's good that its at least being used on Marvel characters, I'll give them that. Plus empaths like Psycho Pirate and Raven could achieve something like that maybe. Bishop and Shaw have been used at times.

Equalization could work to a degree. Like preventing severely depressed people from reaching a breaking point because some villain synchronized their life force with a hero or villain, some sort of karma thing, bestowing the enemy the same potential, handling things while depowered or amped, mystery solving, etc.

That's also true. Equalization as a power for a superhero would be really unique and stand out from the crowd, there's a lot of potential there even if it isn't as bombastic like super strength or speed.

@asgardianweapon: Thanks.

In answering your question, I think thread potential and popularity come from two main factors:

1. The name value of the character itself. No one might know what a "Xemnu" is supposed to be, but they'd know who Spider-Man is, so the chance of going on the thread and commenting is higher.

2. Knowledge of the character. Another thing that stops people from making threads on obscure characters is that they don't know how strong the character is, or what a good matchup would be.

I'd add one more in that people usually don't like debating obscure characters because they usually need to do extra reading, read RT's, etc. Many people simply don't have the time to do that.
