20. Jubilee

Affiliation: X-Men

Powers: Generates brightly colored energy ("fireworks") from her fingers.

In her defense: Her fireworks explode and are very dangerous to epileptics. Also, she's a vampire now, which means she could easily kick your ass.

19. Vibe

Affiliation: Justice League

Powers: Creates powerful shock waves, break dances.

In his defense: Break dancing was very cool at one point. And his power's not totally useless, especially after Batman taught him how to use it correctly.

9. Extraño

Affiliation: New Guardians

Powers: Does magic (some of it real), perpetuates deeply offensive homophobic stereotypes.

In his defense: He's the product of a different time. As for his powers, a crystal skull amplified his abilities to make him a slightly worthier adversary.

7. Squirrel Girl

Affiliation: Great Lakes Avengers

Powers: Has a prehensile tail, sharp claws, and buck teeth capable of chewing through wood.

In her defense: If you've ever fought over a sandwich with a squirrel, you know those little bastards are tough.

3. Rainbow Girl

Affiliation: Legion of Substitute Heroes

Powers: Wields the power of the emotional spectrum, leading to unpredictable mood swings.

In her defense: She's apparently very charming for a confusing and ambiguously sexist creation.
