"Better" is subjective. I think the intent was probably something a little more narrow like, "If you don't like these Edges as they are, what do you think of..."
Cause really, no one who is fine with the Edges as they stand (which seems to be most people) is going to see a change as "better."

So would this be an effect that always occurred when they got a raise on the specific type of attack, or one that still only occurred on a Joker? I'm not quite clear on that.
As a general Combat Edge it doesn't sound too bad (depending on the requirements of course), but I'd probably be more inclined to just change the bonus damage die from a d6 to a d10 or d12. Heck, I might use that (with different names) and the Dead Shot and Mighty Blow as they are.

Who said it wouldn't be allowed for NPCs because it wouldn't be fun? Did I miss that?
Even then, it doesn't have to work the other way around either. It can be fun for the PCs to take out a Big Bad Guy in one shot simply because they are the "heroes" of the story and took an Edge to be able to, where a particular group might not find the same thing as enjoyable if the villain did the same (then again they could).
Really, if the system intended for the rules had to work exactly the same for the PCs as the NPCs, then there wouldn't be Extras or rules that say to just design the NPC however you like it not according to PC creation.
Ultimately, it's a decision that depends totally on play style and individual determinations of what is "fun." If the Edge isn't actually fun in play for someone's group, then they just shouldn't use it of course. Really, it's easy enough just to drop all the Wild Card Edges and not worry about them at all.
