Yes that is true, calling on him to punish someone (if that is the right words) is not very well known I’d say.
But, his name means “Like-EL”, or “Like ‘God’”. And I’ve always got the impression from the Jewish God that he is a God of Protection. When you look at the Bible, many times when he incites Wrath it is to protect another, and he comes through most strongly when protection is requested.
So it makes sense that Michael would be strongest when it comes to defense of all kinds. Pay attention to how he actually defends the person requesting aid, as there may be Wrath in it.
