Human Torch VS Electro

Just a quick question regarding the two. I thought electros passive reflect damage only counted towards physical attacks, and HT's abilities specifically say all his basic attacks deal energy damage. With that being said I just got wrecked by one in variant and I didn't take any hits.

Is this a bug that's needs to get fixed or am I missing something here?

    He reflects all attacks that make contact regardless of if it’s physical or energy.

    Making contact is the critical feature.

    If you use champs like IMIW, Stealthy, Yondu or Domino, you'll see that they don't take damage on their non-contact hits.

    All basic attacks have two properties

    1. Contact or non-contact
    2. Physical or energy

    For example, HT has a contact energy attack. The Thing has a contact physical attack. Havok has a non-contact energy medium attack. Ebony Maw has a non-contact physical medium attack.

    Abilities can have triggers based any or a combination of these 4 different attack types. In the case of Electro, it is the Contact condition that needs to be fulfilled and that's it.
