Yeah, Wyverns will do a number on any Xenos behind an Aegis Line, but you can spread out to minimise the impact of a small blast; with full 2" coherency, Wyverns can get 4 hits maximum unless they scatter nicely - although to be fair, Orks and Daemons and Tyranids are almost never going to get to 2" coherency because they simply don't have that much space on the board.

I'd say the Wyvern is a very effective anti-infantry tool, but due to the fragility of the chassis and the two fairly simply defenses against the gun (hiding behind something and/or spread out), I wouldn't say it's overpowered.
