I personally believe that it is more about the relation she has to these people than their threat level.
She can't have murderous tyrants as villains. Or evil gods. Because her comic is about the graduality of response and doing what is right in a world that is not always so very clear and one-dimensional.
See the Inventor. He was not forcing people and not even violent until Kamala showed up.
What he did was still wrong.
Or how she dealt with Kaboom and Kamran. They are both not actually the bank-robbing, innocent-slaughtering, terrorist kind quite yet.
Problem is, she can't always be meeting people who are not unequivocally evil monstrosities.
Although she was not quite down with hurting huge animals either. Or the drycleaners. Looking at you, Sam.>>77483179
I'm sorry, but I don't see that.
