It's not even 200 chapters in yet we already have several variations of super speed, strength. durability etc and then stuff like Chisaki's quirk which makes the existence of Shigaraki's quirk seem absolutely meaningless(even if that's probably the point) or Dabi's quirk which is literally just Endavour's with a different color(even if that's probably hinting to him being a failed Todoroki)
Sure all battle shounen go through this eventually but it seems like Hori might already be struggling to come up with ideas for interesting quirks in a series where individuality is apparently supposed to matter a lot.

Considering the series has established the powers pass down genetically it makes sense to see a few variants on similar powers. I also would say a power that forces someone to disintegrate things if he touches them is different enough from one that allows someone to explode and reassemble things.

not really no I can see the difference between Chisaki and Shigarakis quirks even if its only that Chisaki can re assemble molecules. and Dabi hasn't been shown to manipulate fire like endeavour can he just shoots it out.

That's what makes it feel so pointless though.
Chisaki can do anything and everything Shigaraki can do better than Shigaraki himself and way more on top of that.

Since Dabi still has a lot of time to make his abilities differ from Endeavor I'll give him the benefit of the doubt but for now, his quirk also feels kinda pointless with the existence of Endeavor's

Shigaraki makes for a better endgame villain with his quirk than Chisaki. The latter can potentially be forced to reassemble things. Mr. Hands couldn't do that if he wanted to, so when he gets to someone it's over and done with.

Wasn't it said he can only reassemble life as soon as it's killed?

Sure, but this is shonen. That could easily mean within five chapters of disassembling someone. Enough time for some dramatic tension.

The same can't be said for The Handy Man. Unless it's someone with a regeneration quirk or a hero with a healing ability comes along to help the victim, whoever gets touched is done for.

So basically Shigaraki's power leaves room for deus ex machina to get involved in case s*** really hits the fan.
At least with chisaki it's established that he could bring you back but either way, I'm certain Chisaki would rather suicide than try to heal his enemies unless his powers were taken control of.

Majority of people have super powers, so less special snowflakes.

Yeah. Unlike other series where normal people make up almost all of the population and super powered dudes are a rarity, it's vice versa in MHA.
