    Usually the greatest weakness a super villain has is the determination and might of the superhero who brings them down, but even supervillains have superpowers that makes them supervillains in the first place. Marvel Comics has a tendency to make every gift a character gets come at a cost. Even if you’re an other worldly being like Mephisto or just get your powers from other worldly beings like Juggernaut, there’s almost always a catch. Sometimes the restrictions are self imposed, like with the Elder of the Universe, The Grandmaster, or in the case of beings like Galactus, it’s part of who they are.
    Whether it’s magical, technical, self imposed or part of the way the Mutant Gene works in Marvel Comics, there’s usually some trade off. Some of those trade offs can be pretty weird, even if they’re not immediately obvious. They can even be the thing that casts them in the role of being the villain in the first place. Not all of the weird power restrictions manifest as an inconvenience to the user, they can also complicate the lives of the people around them or even the ones responsible for the powers in the first place. Something no doubt AIM regrets when making MODOK. From the smallest villains to the most powerful, here are some of the weirder power restrictions for the villains of Marvel.
    Entry 1 - ULTRON
    Entry 2 - JUGGERNAUT
    Entry 3 - GRANDMASTER
    Entry 4 - GALACTUS
    Entry 5 - GREEN GOBLIN
    Entry 6 - SEBASTIAN SHAW
    Entry 7 - EMMA FROST
    Entry 8 - MODOK
    Entry 9 - YMIR
    Entry 10 - MEPHISTO

    Like half of the people on this list dont have a "weird restriction"... Modok has a big head, that's his power, thats not a restriction. Emma Frost has two powers, that need to be used separately... that's not a restriction, that's just having 2 powers. And Being immune to physical attacks but not energy attacks is also not a restriction. Why would something that nobody can normally do, be a restriction? Its not like he LOST the ability to resist energy attacks, so thats not a restriction.

    I can understand nerfing a comic book villain because obviously there power wouldn’t be able to fit into the mcu THAT MAKES SENSE. But some power restrictions are so stupid that’s it’s almost bad writing.

    Realistically the only viable reason for Galactus eating planets, generally occupied ones, is because he likes genocide. If it were ONLY about energy upkeep then eating even a tiny star like Proxima Centauri (It's mass is 12% that of our sun) would without question provide far FAR more energy than eating a planet ever could.
    Also, the movie is (on purpose I think) definitely scarce with details about just HOW they cut Ultron off from the net, and frankly I think it's bogus. Obviously enough he has no need to physically plug in to anything, and the sheer number of communication satellites in orbit would make a being with unlimited access almost completely impossible to actually cut off from the internet. Now maybe Vision could computationally run Ultron into a stalemate with Vision not being able to cut access and Ultron not being able to establish it, but that's the only reasonable way it could have played out....clearly though that's not what happened, and at the end the last body Ultron was in somehow magically forgot about the internet.....frankly if they don't bring us a "Ultron made a super secret backup" storyline at some point it'll be a completely wasted opportunity.
