That is not correct, unless you mean battle skills and such(no great variations there either). Barring Uber Destroyer(Odin & the rest), it's level is pretty consistent.

He is correct in that it does depend on who is inhabiting the Armor. Unless we are to assume that the Destroyer who went toe to toe with the Celestials is the same one that has had to slug it out with both Hulk and Thor. Clearly the Destroyer Armor is not going to be as powerful when worn by the average Joe compared to when it is worn by Thor, Loki or Odin himself.

You have yet to prove that what PAD did was incorrect. The scan you produced below has Cap in it clearly stating that the Visor was opening just prior to the Destroyer blasting away on Thor.
