...just as we see today--and have seen since the early 90s--with 80% of Marvel's criminal antagonists, which represents hundreds, if not thousands, of bad guys.

It has nothing to do with the inherent value or powers of the GG. He's not Leap Frog. Thank God you're not a Marvel writer. 'The Griffin? He's just a big ugly cat with wings, and totally absurd!'

The Jester never had any super powers, but was a clever, intelligent, persistent, and very viable DD villain for decades.

Then the era of writer for enthusiasm/imagination for the Jester passed, and the poor Jester found himself yanked out as cannonfodder, which ended with CW, if in fact that was the first Jester and not the second.

The Jester that was will during Civil War was the second one who first appeared during that Acts of Vengeance Cloak & Dagger crossover issue. The original guy is still retired as far as I know.
