Magicians beat Martial Artists. Wha!?!

I remember reading JSA #3 or 4 (feel free to correct) where the JSA was fighting Mordru over Dr. Fate. In a couple panels, Wildcat takes down Mordru with a tackle & just before he could pound him, Mordru teleports him to someplace else. I was like "....wha?" The way Wildcat tackling Mordru down was drawn, it looked like a rushing shoulder tackle right into the abdomen/diaphram area. Now, speaking from personal experience, I'm not going to be thinking about my next trick on the way down. I'm going to be thinking "Sweet Jesus! Anyone get the plate of that Mack truck? I think he stole my lungs." The only thing Mordru would be doing after that is puking up what he ate last.
