I'm pretty sure one of his super powers ("I have any power I can think

(Insert name of character here) has the power to control people's minds...

Being controlled was something Bart didn't make himself resistant to. 
And he could be defeated by non heroes...

If only he had made it so that No one could defeat him...
(Of course then some LNH'r named 'No one' would have defeated him...
such is life)...
