Well, Thor had hard time defeating Gargoyle during their first encounter. By your logic, Wondra should have similar amount of trouble. But she defeats him with apparent ease.

First encounter, when Gargoyle was a new threat. These days, anyone with half a brain ought to know his powers and abilities and be able to counter them.

He's a vet that's gotten his butt kicked how many times? He has no new tricks, no new tactics. IMO, he's just fallen behind the curve.

... that we didn't see Gargoyle trying to put up a fight, with Wondra just countering his powers.

What we saw in the preview is Gargoyle running around like some Z-list villain and being too scared to defend himself.

Seriously, it seemed that Wondra had less trouble with him than Thor when they last met!

And if it comes to having butt kicked... How many times has Dr Doom been defeated? Yet he's still treated as a serious threat.
