* In volume 8, Emp has literally [[spoiler: [[LikeABadassOutOfHell gone to hell and back with Spooky to try and save MindFuck;]], [[DidYouJustPunchOutCthulhu kicking the crap out of Spooky's demonic service provider]] [[LikeABadassOutOfHell and successfully]] [[{{Defied}} defying]] [[DrivenToSuicide Spooky's]] SenselessSacrifice [[LikeABadassOutOfHell in the process]].]] According to Spooky, this was impossible... And yet, she did it.

** Emp's TheReasonYouSuckSpeech to Ghost Writer.

** Emp's TheReasonYouSuckSpeech to Ghost Writer.Writer.
* The seventh special "Pew! Pew! Pew!" has supervillain Tentakle go on a rampage against the bank that gave him a service fee too many... And Emp ''one-shotting him with a streetlight to the head''.
** The special had multiple supervillains go berserk thanks to their Teknofetish-brand superguns, and at the end one of them literally ''jumped into Emp's hand'' (ironically right after she told it to the owner of the gun, that she had just defeated). Of course she became pissed at being a punchline without respect... And then obliterated ''the gun'': she was even more furious at it thinking it could manipulate her...

** During their respective hearings before the executive council, both Emp and Sistah Spooky had some awesome moments: as jerks as they were, the members of the council couldn't help but admire how she dealt with the Vorpal Sword in the previous volume, and Spooky... Well, she [[spoiler: finally admitted to the world that she and Mind**** were lovers, finally denounced her superjerk peers as the asses they are, reminded that, having resigned, she's not contractually subject to their authority, and then teleported out]].

** TheReveal of the above, complete with Emp ''finally'' getting a chance to indulge herself in some LargeHam EvilGloating over her beaten opponents (complete with EvilLaugh,) is actually made ''more'' awesome by the fact that her big speech is an ImagineSpot and she ''doesn't'' let her enemy know how badly he and so many other villains have been utterly outmaneouvred. It emphasises the difference between Emp and [[AttentionWhore so many of her enemies and so-called allies]] that she does not have some pathological need to be feared/admired, and won't waste time or sacrifice an advantage just for the sake of showing off.

* Volume 9 brings about the culmination of several long-brewing plot points, including [[spoiler: Manny's reappearance following the Capeys debacle and his abduction of dWarf!/Fleshmaster and Emp's long-standing issues with her teammates and the incidents making a black mark on her reputation, such as her connections with the Supradead and Deathmonger and the last volume's finale. Threatened with being put on ice because of her problematic status, Emp is instead abducted and put through a day from hell facing off against a veritable horde of supervillains, including a revitalised Fleshmaster and a returned-from-the-dead Deathmonger. The latter actively enacts a ''truce'' with Emp, of all things, because Deathmonger's actively friendly with Manny. And once she isn't actively being ambushed, Emp rips through Fleshmaster like he was nothing more than wet tissue paper, with the assistance of ''alien hardware''. With this all recorded, she then takes it back to the ''same committee'' who sentenced her to cryogenic imprisonment and uses it to actively prove her innocence in ''everything'' going back to the Capeys night. While short and featuring a heartbreaking BittersweetEnding, Volume 9 has things looking up for Emp, in the end]].
** Also [[spoiler:the SuperHomeys find out that they've become one of the top-ranked hero groups on the planet due to incredibly accurate and up-to-date intel on villain activity, something they weren't even aware of. Turns out Emp has eidetic memory and good hearing, so that every time she'd been captured and tied up, she overheard every EvilGloating tirade by her captors and returned to the Homeys' database to plug in what she learned.]] Emp even [[spoiler:uses her incredible memory and attention to detail to consistently undermine and freak out the supervillains' fighting each other over using Emp's access to high-grade alien tech. Including pretending to be possessed by the "ghost" of a supervillain who had died in an abandoned villain lair that Emp recognized to scare one team of captors into fleeing for their lives.]]

** During all of this in volume 8, Spooky reveals (to the readers but not Emp) that [[spoiler:the constant bondage and humiliation Emp suffers every day is because Spooky jealously cast spells driving supervillains to tie up Emp every chance they got. But then [[MyGodWhatHaveIDone the guilt of what she did]] drove Spooky to try and reverse that spell, only to find out that the bondage urge couldn't go away.]] Even Spooky can't understand why or how Emp is able to even get up in the morning and do what she does. Essentially meaning that [[spoiler: Emp's continued persistence to be a superhero is out of ''sheer willpower'' that even magic can't overcome.]]

** It's preceded by Emp's quiet badassery beforehand. [[spoiler:Spooky is about to do some career-ending, certain-death shit but can't open the portal without Emp's help. When Spooky explains her reason for going on this insane mission, instead of answering, Emp strides over without hesitation and opens it. She then invites herself along.]]
