Because even the most powerful comic book character is still a comic book character.
MoD's whole thing was being a guy in the real world who could summon and control comic book characters such as Hulk, Abomination, and Galactus, as shown in the story "1985".
Which is awesome series, btw. The guy starts out bumming around a comic store, debating indie comics of the time like Cerebus and others I can't remember because the only Indies I was into during that era was Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, and Yusuke Yojimbo.
So that shows you where universal powers, like Owen, stand in comparison to even the weakest iteration of MoD.
"A great tactician creates plans.
A good tactician recognizes the soundness of a plan presented to him.
A fair tactician must see the plan succeed before offering approval.
Those with no tactical ability at all may never understand or accept the plan.
Nor will such people understand or accept the tactician.
To those without that ability, those who possess it are a mystery.
And when a mind is too deficient in understanding, the resulting gap is often filled with resentment."

^^ ... pre-retcon Owen, (original SW) = beyond the LT
a 2nd "pre-retcon" Owen (post original SW up until 2014) = infinities above Cube beings
Post-retcon Owen = Hickman's "universal" power
Hey there ODG. That Cube being was actually "Kosmos" good friend.
"Beyonder's essence" ... what was restricted/limited within Kosmos was another beast.
The writer (Kaminski) who wrote that about Kosmos btw
the very next year had Beyonder contributing in a trans-Multiversal feat with Owen.
Kaminski also had Kubik state, that killing the "Beyonder" would wreck the Multiverse,
meanwhile "Kosmos" was fading out of existence in Kubik's arms and it didn't matter.
Thanos stated that the "Maker" and "Kosmos" were actually like prisons for the Beyonder.
Thanos' (after having been "god" 3 times prior) only recollection of the Beyonder was "unlimited power."
In 2010 Beyonder's power was recounted as having remade "all creation, past, present and future" 3 times in one nanosecond.
All this, of-course, is meaningless in this new Hickman view I'd think.
