Not really.

In the case of powers where there are feasible mundane countermeasures, there is a limitation for that, normally -5%, but it's unlikely to apply to many innate attacks.

In neither case are those counters reasonably mundane. Or even especially realistic - the intensity of magnetic fields you would need to deflect something fast and heavy enough to count as an attack enough to miss a person sized target would be fairly ridiculous, and the rate of heat transfer you'd need to melt a ball of ice that counted as an attack might be physically impossible - the heat conductivity of the ice likely isn't high enough for it to melt in a fraction of a second even if you opened a gate to the sun or something.
