The former is highly improbable, but I can imagine highly efficient power sources in a world with flying power armor. The latter is physically impossible, as in "cannot happen under the laws of physics." I don't see that as a weird place to draw the line.

I'm actually cool with blocking light-based attacks. I can come up with some theory where the forcefield only allows light up to some point, then reflects any excess power. Which it would have to for people inside the forcefield to even know they were being attacked with lasers or whatnot. My problem here is that Monica is not a light-based attack. She's just light trying to get through.

It's kinda like having an air-permeable forcefield. I buy that it might protect people from hurricanes. I don't buy that it can keep a gas-based superbeing out, when the forcefield is explicitly shown to allow its occupants to breathe comfortably.

To paraphrase an Isaac Asimov quote Mort Weisinger made up: " That optics doesn't work that way is a theory. That Monica can't get through the shield is a fact. "

(The original quote was about the speed of light and Superman.)
