    At some point it just becomes ridiculous to excuse any and all defeats like this.
My pet peeve is the lack of respect writers have for each other's work/character and established continuity. You get writers who have a bias for & against characters and they will show it in their work. This become very apparent when a character like Ka-Zar, Squirrel Girl,or a total mismatch  (ie: Sue Storm vs. Exitar). fights someone clearly outside their weight class. In all logical terms they should be obliterated with a thought but through some foolish plot device that is totally out of character of the stronger opponent, the weaker one is allowed to win. Now we all know that Ka-Zar is not going to die so in some unexplainable/stupid way, they pull a win. I don't care to bend and twist pass losses of a character to explain some writer's fickle mind. There is no solution to this because writers will feel the need to erase or explain away the loss of the character they are writing at the time. At best we can take a average and debate that.
