Strong antagonist?

Do you think it is fine to depict a strong antagonist? Can it make the story/protagnist weaker? I had attempted a story once where antagonist was mostly a step ahead of the protagonist and I was able to pull it off but I am not sure if I can do it again as I find it risky.

Usually you want the antagonist to be fairly strong/intimidating towards the beginning of the story. Towards the end, depending on how you want your story to go, the protagonist would either inch closer to that level of power, or have some other advantage.

In my opinion, people like to see a strong villain. They like the antagonist to pose a good challenge to the protagonist. Gone are the days when only heroes used to emerge as the winners. A strong antagonist also leaves scope for the story to continue.

Ok, I will try this again and see how it goes. I agree that it can leave an opening for another part and for the protagonist to make a comeback.
