Their power, originally, was derived by stealing Asgardian power (Thor stuff) so they were capable of fighting the likes of the Hulk to a standstill - these guys were baaaaaaad.
And yet all they really wanted to do was rob banks. Yes, they could have stolen the whole building - just picked it up and walked off with it - but no, they had to just go for the money. Fort Knox was theirs for the pickin', but they just wanted pocket change. Heck, they could rule a lot of planets.
The Wrecking Crew have now lost their Asgardian levels of power (though they remain incredibly strong) and spend their lives trying to get it back. I mean they work really, really hard at it. A lot harder than they would work if they just got a job moving pianos. Again proof of how ultimately dumb this bunch of meatheads really is.
They usually hang together - all four of them big enough to not fit through a door - in some one bedroom flop in Brooklyn - IN COSTUME!
My favorite would be the guy with the metal head. (Bulldozer) Why do guys, even really, really strong guys, insist on butting things with their heads like goats? I don't care how strong you are, you butt the Hulk with your head and you're going to break your neck. At least put a point on that helmet for crying out loud.
The next Thor movie needs serious comic relief. FOUND IT!
