      So electric powers themselves probably aren't going to do Electro any good against an ionic being unless he's learned how to master chemistry at an atomic level or something.

    Even if he is no genius, he knows more than people give him credit for.

    Electro once defeated the Invisible Woman when he created a localized electromagnetic storm.

    This allowed him to carbonize the air around her and it imprisoned her in a sheath of rock hard carbon atoms, effectively making a statue out of her.

    The Wizard teached him how to do it.

    See my other example below : Doc Ock teached him how to ionize metal.

If your question had been could Electro hurt Spider-Man then yes I would agree with you. Generic super strength would probably not be enough to stop Electro if he zapped you and gave you everything he had.

But the people you listed have been shown to be invulnerable. Wonderman for example survived a bomb that annihilated most of the life in the Kree galaxy in Galactic Storm. His skin is invulnerable. It's not just that he's super strong but you can't penetrate his skin. He's also not alive in the traditional sense. I think the current understanding is that Simon is sentient energy that looks like a human being but isn't.

Lastly let's be honest Wonder Man's powers clearly aren't ionic. That's the term they use in the comics but ions are what happens when an atom gets more or less electrons than it's supposed to have which is important chemistry wise (because chemistry deals with the outer electron shells) but Wonder Man apparently doesn't affect the chemical properties of things and Electro for the most part doesn't either.

I'm guessing you're not really asking IF it's possible for Wonder Man to be killed by Electro (I think most of us here agree he can't). You're really asking HOW would Electro kill Wonderman. The only way I can think Electro could do that is find a way to make Wonderman's body lose cohesion or find a way to de-ionize every atom that constitutes Wonder Man.
