Yeah, it definitely isn't specific to this story. And it only really bugs me (and then only a little) when they are putting up a shield against a known threat, which then breaks right through it.

If it isn't a known threat, then they could have misjudged, or if a KNOWN threat that is powerful enough pounds away at it for a while I can see them wearing down from the effort of maintaining it after a bit, but when something they know the strength of just busts right through...
