Right Lehane is better when you use some pills. But Lea´s rescue bonus is much better. Most people do not want to spend many pillz on a 2 star card. Therefore I rarely see opponents who use many pills on Lehane (normally 0-3). I think her main purpose is just to force the opponent to pill to get an pillz advantage.
And if you compare Lea with Lehane you can see that there is not a big difference. Like frychikn said:
Lea: 18 - 24 - 30 - 36 - 42
Lehane: 16 - 24 - 32 - 40 - 48
Ok I admit that Lehane is slightly better because she gives you the additional option to stop every card in a high pillz fight. But in the standard low pillz fight they are about even! So if you want a permanent ban for Lehane then Lea must be a beast as well. And indeed in my opinion Lea is one of the best Rescue cards...
Putzo: your comparison fails as the two cards usually don't battle _each other_.
Comparing them in a heads on is thus not great; keep in mind that Lehane beats MORE characters than Lea - notably all more that are in the gap between the two. (And I argue that playing either Lehane or Lea without any pill is not a good idea in most situations.)
Plus, still the "Rescue only really playable as Mono" thing. Lehane can still be splashed into even a 7char/1char deck and remains strong.
In some situations, lehane is better than zatman, mainly against other atk manipulation clans, and against SOB clans. She works as 2 things in a deck, number 1 - a wall to stop opp cards getting through 2 - a bluff to make opp play 2-3 pillz min to beat her or let her through for an easy 2 dmg.
Ih and putzo if lehane would be facing lea, neither would have their bonus so it would be more like.
Lea: 6 - 12 - 18 - 24 - 30
Lehane: 8 - 16 - 24 - 32 - 40
... as they hardly ever face eachother this is not relevant though but still if you concider Lea on par with Lehane then you play lehane or lea very differently from everybody else I think
There are serveal "no-pill" cards here, like Niemestiec with 20att, will you say he is broken because he is better than Lehane/Lea in no-pill duel? The fact is Lehana can block far more cards in a decisive round, which makes her a true monster.
Lehane and Lea: For me cards which you use in low pillz fights. Why would anybody use many pillz on them? Only in rare occasions if you want to stop another card. But in my Elo games this never happens as Lehane is normally played in round 1.
If I am wrong and if I use them "very differently from everybody else" then please tell me - in Elo games the 1300 + players do not use many pillz on her, often 0 pillz just to force the opponent to use pillz or to take 2 damage. I would be extremely suprised if most people use Lehane and Lea with 6 pillz or more.
And the point is: In low pillz fights Lea is not worse than Lehane. But people always complain about Lehane and never about Lea. I see that Lehane is very good. But Lea as well! A ban of Lea would hurt Rescue players much more than the ban of Marco.
Other 2 * cards like Jessie, Marlysa Cr, Phyllis, Tula, Wanda and Hawkins are excellent as well. And because of their higher damage or pillz manipulation ability they are more frightening as Lehane.
A 1 * Wanda is even worse than Lehane - a damage reducer with 8 power for only 1 star? You must be kidding! A ban of Wanda is much more justified than a ban of Lehane - only rich players can afford to play with 1 * Wanda in Elo. This makes Elo a game of the rich people. On the other hand everybody can afford Lehane so Lehane with one more star is much fairer.
I agree 1* Wanda is another joke, but right now I will still be happy if Lehane were banned permanently.
Most of the other 2* cards you listed can be dealed with SOA, but Lehana remains a pain even without her ability or bonus. I will be surpised to hear people enjoying using double stop cards like Leviatonn to chellange such a power 8 monster.
And if you are always seeing people use her in offense without pills, that could due to a reason he found no big damage dealer in your deck. Imaging there are 3 cards with D6+ in hand? That could be like suicide.
So if you are so feared of Lea, go check your decks and deal with the problem, if you are angry with Lehane, many others should be at your side.
