You know... that's actually an interesting plot point. There's probably a whole slew of hero characters who have a level of power they never use because it "taps into a side of themselves they don't want to go."

Heck, the classic green Hulk is almost always there.

So right away the removal of the bracelets serves as a can-o-Spinach that lets the hero wipe out an otherwise impossible boss villain, opens up the possibility of a hero-on-hero fight scene, and serves as a powerful metaphor about the abuse of power, if you're into that.

Sure, it's creaky, but it's a 60 year old comic.
