    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

    huh, thought this was going to be a list of some of the stranger nerfings that marvel villains got in their cinematic reimaginings, like Doc Doom becoming what amounts to an artificial mutant and being something of an idiot even before the process messed with his head as opposed to, well, being in any way Doctor Doom.

    The explanation of Kinetic energy is not good. Kinetic energy is a side effect of so many other energies, along with "throwing a punch", or direct kinetic energy.

    I thought this would be a video noting the restrictions from the comic versions and the movie versions. But these are hardly even restrictions.

    Beyond God like powers, he is easily defeated by himself when he says his name backwards. And yes, I realize he is from DC comics but try to come up with one better.

    Wait... Does Doctor Strange actually need to confront Dormammu on a regular basis? His encounter with Dormammu in the MCU seemed very much like a one-time negotiation.
