* AdaptationalNiceGuy: Not nearly as much of a KnightTemplar as his 616 incarnation.



* NoSmoking: He disapproves of his lover Dazzler's smoking habit and tries to keep her from doing it when he can.



* TookALevelInKindness: Not nearly as much of a KnightTemplar as his 616 incarnation.




to:

Formerly a mutant singer, Dazzler's dreams of becoming a pop sensation were shattered when Apocalypse launched his strike against America. Though embittered by this loss, she joined Magneto's X-Men to do some good in the world.

* BattleCouple: Her and Exodus.
* CouldntFindALighter: Often uses her lasers to light up her cigarettes.
* FrickinLaserBeams: Her primary method of attack, though she doesn't hold back nearly as much as her 616 counterpart.
* LightEmUp: Her mutant power, which allows her to convert sound into light.
* TheMourningAfter: In her last appearance her lover Exodus is missing in action and she is stated to be trying to move on but secretly waiting for his return and hoping that he is still alive.
* SmokingIsCool: Heavily averted, as she is explicitly noted to have become a heavy smoker as a means of coping with the loss of her music career, and further, has ruined her voice after years of chain smoking.
* StatusQuoIsGod: An interesting ''visual'' case: in the original 1995 series she was drawn with an appearance very distinct from the 616 Dazzler, with longer hair, a darker uniform, and a harder face. Fast forward ten years to the AfterTheEnd miniseries, and suddenly she looks a ''lot'' more like her 616 counterpart. Compare [[https://vignette2.wikia.nocookie.net/marveldatabase/images/8/8e/Alison_Blaire_%28Earth-295%29_from_Amazing_X-Men_Vol_1_2_0001.jpg the original]] to [[https://s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/736x/e2/a8/87/e2a8875e7a3d0547211fb990526e0dc8--comic-covers-book-covers.jpg the update]] and see for yourself.
* SmokyVoice: Said to have one, as she no longer cared about preserving her voice after Apocalypse's war.
* TheRockStar: She was all set to become one, until Apocalypse's war destroyed that dream forever.
* TookALevelInBadass: Unlike her lover Exodus, she is arguably stronger than her 616 counterpart, owing to her much more martial lifestyle.




to:

A mutant cyborg who worked with Magneto in the past. In the present day he leads the Outcasts, a RagtagBunchOfMisfits traveling the Midwest as stage actors while making secret strikes at Apocalypse's regime when they can.

* {{Cyborg}}: Like the 616 Forge, though he has replaced much more of his body with machinery over the years.
* KilledOffForReal: Beaten to death by Mr. Sinister for getting between him and Nate.
* EyeScream: Suffered one in the past that cost him his left eye. He has since replaced it with a mechanical eye of his own creation.
* MentorOccupationalHazard: Dies in the pages of 'Comicbook/XMan'' four issues after becoming Nate's mentor.
* OnlySaneMan: He is the only member of the Outcasts who suspects that the hulking, red-eyed "Essex" might be trouble.




to:

* RebelLeader: A smaller scale version compared to Magneto, but he and his Outcasts still make strikes against Apocalypse under their cover as stage actors.
* ShakespearianActors: What he and his Outcasts masquerade as.
* SternTeacher: He's not above beating Nate bloody to teach him the dangers of showing off, though in this reality such lessons are necessary.
* ZenSurvivor: Thanks to fighting against Apocalypse about as long as Magneto has.



* RedEyesTakeWarning: Has these both in his normal form and in his disguise as "Essex". Despite this rather obvious visual cue, Forge is the only member of the Outcasts to distrust him.



* VoluntaryShapeshifter: A power he shares with his 616 counterpart. He puts it to work by infiltration Forge's Outcasts as the seemingly benign traveler "Essex".

* HeWhoFightsMonsters: Played with. He eventually realizes that Apocalypse is a threat that must be stopped, and creates Nate Grey to this end, but he's still an evil bastard who has no compunctions about beating an old man to death for getting in his way.
* HoistByHisOwnPetard: Detailed in the Kick the Dog example directly below.
* KickTheDog: He [[MentorOccupationalHazard beats Nate's mentor Forge to death]] more or less for getting between him and Nate (he'd infiltrated the group Nate was with in a disguise, hoping to guide Nate towards his own goals, but Forge kept shutting him down). Nate ''[[UnstoppableRage did not]]'' [[NoHoldsBarredBeatdown take this]] [[LaserGuidedKarma well]].
* KilledOffForReal: [[spoiler:Originally beaten to death by Nate, he was later retconned into surviving, only to be killed off again anyway, this time by Weapon X and Jean Grey]]

* AlwaysSomeoneBetter: Constantly on the receiving end of this from Nate Grey who, at full power, doesn't even consider him to be a threat, brushing him off to take on Apocalypse. Even in one of his partially depowered stages (he only had his telekinesis) during their time on Earth-616, Nate ''still'' thrashed him.
