Maybe my calc was a little off, but even if it did say it 2HKOd you would have to take into account the attack drop you get from Superpower.
Personally, I disagree with Axew being A tier. Whilst it is a good pokemon, the lack of reliable moves is annoying. Dual Chop/Dragon Claw aren't that powerful, whilst Outrage as we all know can have massive consequences. BW2 gave it a nice coverage move in Superpower but lowering your attack makes it seem like setting up was a waste of time. Afaik, the only other coverage moves it has are X-Scissor, (which is a waste of time as it doesn't provide any additional coverage and a STAB Outrage does more than a Super Effective X-Scissor) Return, (no extra coverage) and Aqua Tail (which I can't think of anything that it's worth using for except like Rock/Steel types which are rare).
Basically, it's movepool is too crappy to be A-Tier material for me.
