    Well, let's have a look at what a wizard can do by the time he's level 9:

    - Create a noise equivalent to 20 shouting humans wherever he likes within 45 feet (Ghost sound, 0lvl)
    - Create small objects, warm things up, change their taste, etc. (Prestidigitation, 0lvl)
    - Make any humanoid his friend (Charm person, 1st)
    - Knock out a roomful of low-level guards (Colour spray, 1st)
    - Slow fall as the monk's 18th-level ability, only better (Feather Fall, 1st)
    - Walk through a raging inferno unburned (Prot. Energy, 2nd)
    - Become invisible (Invisibility, 2nd)
    - Create four to seven illusory copies of himself and control all of them at once. (Mirror Image, 2nd)
    - I prepared explosive runes this morning. (Explosive Runes, 3rd)
    - Summon a frankly ridiculous horse. (Phantom Steed, 3rd)
    - Definitely not scrying. (Clairvoyance/Clairaudience, 3rd)
    - Brutally murder a roomful of low-level guards. (Fireball, 3rd)
    - Fly (Fly, 3rd)
    - Definitely scrying. (Scrying, 4th)
    - Shoot off 760 feet as a standard action. (Dim. Door, 4th)
    - Create a raging inferno. (Wall of Fire, 4th)
    - "Wall is immune to damage." That's a nice summary. (Wall of force, 5th)
    - Brutally murder a roomful of mid-level guards, and badly injure any high-level guards that might have snuck in there. (Cloudkill, 5th)
    - Utterly control someone. (Dominate person, 5th)
    - Murder a 1st-level character from anywhere on the same plane while they sleep (Nightmare, 5th)

    You have to be able to stand up to that somehow. And "I hit it with my axe. I trip it. I grapple it." doesn't really stand up to that.

Because that would be equivalent to "can't do anything" which is pretty much the exact opposite of what this guy is.
    I think you're overthinking it. They're not really really additionally more mundane than usual, they are both hyper, and mundane. They are a mundane who is hyper.
