Or any number of low/non super powered characters. Captain America only has peak human abilities, not super. Apart from his heightened senses and radar sense, Daredevil is normal. Bullseye, Elektra, and the Kingpin are all non-powered. Even in the spider verse, Black Cat's only power was her latent bad-luck mutation, and that hasn't been used in a very long time, right? Everything else is from technology.

A couple I can think of are the Jackal back in the '70s, who won every battle he had with Spidey despite having no superhuman powers and being a probably fortysomething college professor, and Hammerhead, whose metallic skull apparently protects his entire body from injury (to the point that his being at ground zero of a nuclear reactor exploding turns him into ethereal form rather than kills him).

> Captain America only has peak human abilities, not super.

But his ability means that he is near practically perfect. No other human can reach that perfection, not even Batman or Punisher, why is why the Super Soldier serum is so special. So Cap is a bit of a 'naughty' example.

>Apart from his heightened senses and radar sense, Daredevil is normal.

I was always under the impression that all of his senses were heightened, and therefore, since his sense of touch was heightened, he has super-strength? Correct me if I'm wrong. I've just never regarded Daredevil with normal level strength ability.

> Bullseye, Elektra, and the Kingpin are all non-powered.

Until we find out Bullseye is a Mutant, like Taskmaster. ;\) Actually, Taskmaster is a good example also of a non-powered bad guy... until the dreaded retcon.
Elektra... she has ninja abilities to make up for it. She can actually psychically transfer her mind from place to place and influence people telepathically. She can, I think, also teleport, or am I wrong? In essence, Elektra has learned enough supernatural arts to no longer classify as 'non-powered'.
The Kingpin has always bothered me as there is simply no natural way for anybody to be as built and as fast as Fisk is. I've always secrely suspected him to be a Mutant.

>Even in the spider verse, Black Cat's only power was her latent bad-luck mutation, and that hasn't been used in a very long time, right? Everything else is from technology.

Felicia lost her powers for a while thanks to the Chameleon and never regained them. All of her current powers are from the Tinkerer, but I suspect in one retcon or another she's recovered either her old powers or gained some new ones. But yes, I remember Felicia making a jump straight up in the air and finding it difficult to suspend my disbelief at that point.

Back onto Punisher, that man once went toe to toe with Venom... now that's stretching credibility.
