If he was actually controlling his powers to to use them against her rather then just letting his passive redirection handle it... well that kind of makes him a fraud.

I wasn't suggesting he had no control over his powers (that train didn't land on MISAKA 9982 by accident, after all), but it seemed like the reflection and the rest of it worked on different levels. I'm sure he could have actively controlled the vectors of those pieces of track, but again that kind of seems to undermine his whole "effortlessly ignoring her strongest attacks" schtick.
He was the whole time spending his time talking to her.

It wasn't until she shot her Failgun that he noticed she really was trying to fight him thus his dissapointment.

Different mindsets. But arrogance still is arrogance be it from a middle school girl or not.
