I would like to mention Marvel Scale. With Weak Armor, your biggest threat is residual damage via status, physical priority / attacks in general, or paralysis. Marvel Scale is an answer to all of these downfalls. By utilizing a bulky sweeper set, CAP4 can come in on status and get the Defense boost, so that you're not prone to physical assaults, and then boost up / sweep with a Choice item.
The risk involved with this is that you will have less turns to sweep once you get poisoned / burned, or you will be prone to being revenge killed if you are paralyzed. One could argue that Marvel Scale is even riskier that Weak Armour in this regard.
Marvel Scale can have use over Weak Armor if the player does not choose to invest in speed. Furthermore, it does not make CAP4 a one-trick pony; Marvel Scale forces the opponent to think twice when statusing it. If Marvel Scale CAP4 is played well, it can end the game.

@Soarin: Flinches are supposed to happen.
@Soarin: Paralysis is supposed to happen.
@Soarin: Deal with it.
