I'm also in the camp that excused Creel's bad performance in the fight due to having his bell rung pretty hard when he touched the gravitonium. That would throw anyone off their game. Plus, it seems to take a long time for him to change based on whatever substance he is touching and she didn't seem to give him time to do that. However, I noticed the camera work was pretty close and lots of quick cuts so I have a feeling since she's much newer at this she's not as good at fight sequences as May or Daisy are now. But, why would he think turning to wood would help him against a sharp bladed weapon? The only thing worse for wood would (hee) be fire. FFS Creel.
