* AdaptiveAbility: His power, in a nutshell, is the ability to adapt to deal with the powers of whoever he's currently facing off against. There are three downsides - one is that he has to be able to ''see'' what he's dealing with. Two is that he can't adapt to a power that isn't being used in direct offense to him. Three is that there's a limit to how many adaptations he can have at once; he's vulnerable to a massive team-up.
* AtrociousAlias: The absurdity of his villain name has been noted by the heroes ''and'' his fellow villains. He seems to be the only one who thinks it's cool. But of course, it's really ''provocative''.
-->'''Anvil''': I'm going to arrest you just for that. That is the worst name ever.
* ComboPlatterPowers: Death Toll initially appears to have a wide array of powers capable of dealing with everyone he fights. However Sydney is able to figure out that his power is actually [[spoiler: to gain the power to counter whoever is attacking him]] (frequently with enough force to put the attacker out of the fight).
* EnergyAbsorption:
** A common manifestation of his power; he soaks up incoming damage and then turns it back on the attackers in one form or another.
** He absorbs the kinetic energy from Anvil's blow, and all the energy she had stored up, rendering her unconscious.
** When Jiggawatt attacks him by turning into lightning and hurling herself at him, he briefly traps her between his hands, and then shoots her out at Stalwart.
* TheGadfly[=/=]YouFightLikeACow: His grandiloquent, obnoxious manner, goading and insulting his opponents at every opportunity, and his extra-flashy costume may simply be designed to provoke opponents into attacking him as much as possible, so they don't realize that he can't do anything unless they do. If so, he arguably manages to overdo it.
* InTheHood: He wears a cowl (admittedly not in black), along with a somewhat PimpedOutCape, purely so he can "look imperious". In other words, he lives and more or less lampshades the trope.
* LogicalWeakness:
** His power requires him to be attacked first so he can then counter whatever is being thrown at him. So...
** Sydney points out that as long as no one attacks him, he's powerless.
** She then suggests another option; lay off the MookChivalry and all hit him at once, so as to overload his powers.
* ManOfKryptonite: Death Toll automatically has whatever power he needs to counter whoever attacks him. However, if no one attacks him, he can't do very much. Also, he can't counter too many opponents at once.
* MookChivalry: Relies heavily on this, goading the heroes into attacking him one by one since there turns out to be a limit to how much he can counter at once. He goes down when multiple heroes hit him together.

* {{BFS}}/LaserBlade: Her power revolves around energy "blades" which her superpower enables her to create around any long, thin object which she holds in her hand.

* ImplausibleFencingPowers: Trounces Dabbler in a sword fight and easily deflects her magical attacks while doing so. WordOfGod puts her at a four on the power scale.
* LogicalWeakness: Needs a weapon to channel energy around, and Peggy very nearly takes her out of the fight altogether by shattering her wooden sword with a sniper bullet. If she hadn't picked up another fallen villain's ribbon whip, she'd have been done for.
* SwordBeam: At least a borderline case; the energy fields she can create around her blade may not give her a true ranged attack, but they give her significantly more reach than a mundane sword.

* AbstractEater: His main (and possibly only true) superpower; [[spoiler:Vehemence is "an innate user of vehemic energy ... sometimes called vistric energy." The layman's version: he gains power from violence. He makes his debut by sticking around an all out super brawl between a super hero team and a team-up of villains. Only when it's over does he enter the fray himself, now strong enough to go toe-to-toe with one of the most powerful super beings in the world and only making himself stronger for it.]]
* AffablyEvil:
** His ''exact'' motives are kept quiet for a while, but he's certainly not friendly to the heroes.
** However, after showing up for the big fight in a nice suit, [[PetTheDog he has a short, amiable conversation with Sydney]], indicates to her which of the other villains looks most worrying, and then privately hopes that she doesn't get herself killed. He becomes far less affable once he [[BloodKnight starts to fight]], but even then he manages a few jokes during the pauses between punches, and he goes to the trouble of [[MagicPants preserving his modesty]] to [[FullFrontalAssault avoid shocking his opponents too much.]]
** He has a dedication to etiquette that verges on BlueAndOrangeMorality. He'll beat your face in, but he (almost) never swears, and he generally tries to leave his opponents alive [[spoiler: if only so they can come back to commit more violence later]]. He even pointed out to Arc-SWAT that he probably caved in Vekter's ribs and that they should send someone to check on him before the fight really got going.
* TheAgeless: Vehemence's age is unclear; it's not even certain that he's a mortal. However, his knowledge of occult secrets and a casual reference to being present at "the [[UsefulNotes/CivilRightsMovement L.A. Race Riots]]" (which race-related riots in L.A. he means is unclear) suggest that he's certainly been around for some time.
* AmbiguouslyEvil: While he attacks Arc-SWAT with clear intent to take them down, and he manipulated dozens of people into a super-powered battle, he's not shown any desire to cause ''lasting'' harm [[spoiler: past killing Maxima, and then only because she's willing and able to kill him]]. He's expressed hope that Sydney survives the night, and prompted Arc-SWAT to check on a guy he just hit, as he may have broken some ribs. Furthermore, he shows no real animosity or malice towards our heroes, even complimenting their fighting ability, and obliging Sydney in some light banter.
* AmbiguouslyHuman: It's not certain whether or not he's human/mortal or not especially given the fact that [[spoiler:the only other users of vehemic energy that Dabbler knows of are a type of demon]], and the hints that he might be TheAgeless.
* ArcVillain: Of the press conference/first superbrawl arc.
* BadassInANiceSuit: Vehemence first [[http://grrlpowercomic.com/archives/1422 appears]] wearing a suit and a tolerably NiceHat.
* BaldOfEvil: All part of his shaven-headed thug look.
* BatmanGambit: He counted on ARC-SWAT to take a "punch first, ask questions later" approach to the supervillain ambush he'd orchestrated [[spoiler: to help fuel his powers]].
* BloodKnight:
** One of the explanations he initially offers for his own actions -- and the one that Maxima finds most plausible.
--->'''Vehemence:''' [[http://grrlpowercomic.com/archives/1490 Fine. I'm just pro-violence, and I'm here to beat the hell out of you.]]
** Actually, it's really because [[spoiler:he draws power from "vehemic energy", which is the psychic energy of violence itself. He engaged Arc-SWAT because superheroes produce otherwise impossible levels of localized violence, which in turn gives him extraordinary levels of power]]. Which is kind of a very practical reason for being a BloodKnight.
** It's also implied that [[spoiler: vehemic energy [[EvilFeelsGood feels good to him,]] which means that he literally gets high off of violence.]]
* ChekhovsGunman: First seen [[http://grrlpowercomic.com/archives/1189 in the first panel in a strip showing the potential reactions of villains to the press conference]], then spends the early stages of the superbrawl just hanging in the background. Given that subsequent panels in that strip included a huge demon (possibly archdemon) with an axe to grind against Dabbler, as well as Deus, this could mean that he's actually a DiskOneFinalBoss or StarterVillain if the other villains shown also end up being Chekhov's gunmen...
* CombatPragmatist: He grabs Anvil's hair and swings her around with it when he fights her. He also has [[spoiler:no objection to simply trying to ''kill'' Maxima after she manages to hurt him]].
* ConservationOfNinjutsu: Vehemence appears to embody the trope, which is invoked, lampshaded, discussed, and PlayedStraight by and with him. See the main page for more on this. Actually, it turns out that [[spoiler:he draws power from violence, so being present at a big fight which thins out both sides powers him up]], thereby justifying the trope in his case.
* CutenessOverload: Is held in a cell with '''Videogame/KirbysEpicYarn''' in order [[http://grrlpowercomic.com/archives/1881 to keep him relaxed.]] He also has a [[AndAllIGotWasThisLousyTShirt lousy T-shirt]], a Mario star, [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic a poster of Twilight]], and a lot of weed smoke.
* DeadpanSnarker: He has his moments, such as when Sydney claims Dabbler (in full succubus form) is from Jersey.
-->'''Vehemence:''' Oh, is ''that'' where they keep the Aetheon thrones? Pull the other one.\\
'''Sydney:''' Not ''New'' Jersey, obviously. ''Old'' Jersey.
* DistractedByTheSexy: Sydney's plan to stop him involves getting Dabbler to jump rope in front of him (causing her breasts to jiggle), [[spoiler: countering his [[ThePowerOfHate vehemic energy]] with Dabbler's [[ThePowerOfLove tantric energy]] ]], and causing him to start losing focus and strength.
* DoubleAgent: Implied then averted. His actions in standing back from the big fight and then betraying his own side seem to hint at the trope initially, but he eventually claims not to be working for anyone but himself, and he's certainly not there to help the heroes.
* EarlyBirdCameo: He is depicted several pages before his first "actual" appearance, [[http://grrlpowercomic.com/archives/1189 here.]]
* EvilFeelsGood: Implied to be a part of the reason that [[spoiler: Vehemence is so dedicated to accumulating vehemic energy.]]
* ExactWords: Vehemence is very careful in what he says. He almost always speaks in terms of his capabilities, implying the threat that he might actually ''use'' those capabilities. [[spoiler: This is because he doesn't really ''have'' any grand ambitions or political goals. He really does just love violence, thanks to his ability to feed on vehemic energy. In fact, he hates the kind of mayhem he was threatening, since too much violence ''now'' means he doesn't get ''any'' violence later.]]
* GagPenis: Judging by the reactions of the cast (including an "[[Creator/GeorgeTakei Oh myyy...]]"), Vehemence gains one [[http://grrlpowercomic.com/archives/1543 when he hulks out]].
* GeniusBruiser:
** His primary powers are basically SuperStrength and [[NighInvulnerable robustness]], and he looks the part of a hulking thuggish bruiser. However, he is also very shrewd and well-informed.
** He is able to manipulate both other villains and heroes into acting in ways that suit him.
** He recognizes Dabbler's supernatural nature and laughs off her cover story, implying exceptional knowledge of the occult.
** He later casts a kind of spell that [[spoiler:causes the defeated villains to wake up and makes them and the heroes to fight among themselves to get more vehemic power]].
* GenreSavvy:
** He not only seems to be on the same wavelength as Sydney, he ''says'' "[[http://grrlpowercomic.com/archives/1484 Dun. Dun. Dunnnnnn.]]" at a crucial moment, and refers to Sydney's genre savviness with amused respect.
** And then there's the moment when he [[http://grrlpowercomic.com/archives/1358 pokes at Dabbler's dropped sword with a stick]] in a very Sydney-like manner.
* GodzillaThreshold: He's usually careful not to kill the people he fights, [[spoiler:since doing so would starve him of his power source]], but after powering up as much as he can he goes in for the kill on Maxima, because he regards her as the only hero who stands a chance of stopping him.
* HealingFactor: Uses this to regenerate his eye, tooth [[spoiler: and arm. Plus whenever he does heal, he gets even stronger]].
* KnowWhenToFoldEm: [[spoiler:Surrenders when Sydney points out it's either that or Maxima frying his head]].
* LightningBruiser: One with [[http://grrlpowercomic.com/archives/1491 a shockingly fast recovery time, at that]].
* LogicalWeakness: [[spoiler:Besides the fact that he needs violence to fuel his powers, and thus isn't much of a threat if no-one is fighting within his range, it's possible to hit him hard enough that the benefits he gets from the violence are outweighed by the damage done.]]
* MagicPants: Vehemence averts and then invokes this trope in a literally magical form when he has absorbed a very large amount of "vehemic energy". He uses it to grow to twice his normal size -- [[http://grrlpowercomic.com/archives/1543 with all-too-realistic consequences for his clothes.]] However, he then flaunts just how much power he has acquired by using some of it to create himself a new pair of pants, complete with accompanying [[UnsoundEffect Ka-pants]].
* ManipulativeBastard: Orchestrated the whole superbrawl, roping in all of the supers he knew who could possibly be partial to it [[MoreThanMindControl (and some who normally wouldn't be, it seems...)]] and banked on [=ArcSWAT=] to react the way they did [[spoiler: to fuel up his powers from all the violence]].
* MoreThanMindControl: [[spoiler: His control over vehemic energy extends to instilling and exacerbating violent tendencies in others; when powered up, he used his vehemic aura to wake up almost every knocked out super and make them fight each other indiscriminately, and post-battle conversations with some of the attacking supers stongly suggest that he used his aura to ramp up their aggression to the point where they thought the brawl was a good idea, [[OOCIsSeriousBusiness which they likely never would have thought otherwise.]]]]
* MotiveRant: Subverted. At one point, he claims he'll start wars all over the world to fuel his powers, but...
-->'''Vehemence:''' Actually Colonel, I'm not planning on doing any of that. It's just the sort of thing a guy like me is supposed to say. The world could use a good kick in the ass don't get me wrong, but war is unruly. I enjoy a good scrap is all. Think I'll take in a sports riot next. Brazil perhaps.
* MysteriousStranger: His initial style, standing off to the side watching as the members of the villain team battle with the members of Arc-SWAT, and then having a polite conversation with Sydney. Also, Maxima refuses to believe his first explanation for his actions.
* MysteriousWatcher: Although the other villains are willing to regard him as one of their own, he just watches while they fight. Sydney is rightly concerned by this mystery.
* NewPowersAsThePlotDemands: Towards the climax of his fight against the team; justified in that [[spoiler: by that point he's absorbed so much vehemic energy that he can use it in almost any way he sees fit]].
* NighInvulnerable: Just for a start, Vekter hits him with a car which explodes on impact, and the only damage we see is his suit sleeve being slightly ripped. [[spoiler: He becomes even more resilient as the fight continues.]]
* PetTheDog: He seems to have a certain fondness for Sydney; she's the one he's referring to in his character pic above.
* PoliticallyIncorrectVillain: Vehemence says that he has gained more energy from his fight with Arc-SWAT than he got from the [[UsefulNotes/CivilRightsMovement L.A. Race Riots.]] That said, [[AmbiguouslyEvil he doesn't say whether he took part]].
* PowerGlows: The more [[spoiler: vehemic energy he absorbs,]] the stronger he gets and the more his tattoos glow.
* PowerTattoo: Seems to be the case, as his tattoos are blue-lavender at the beginning of a fight, then [[http://grrlpowercomic.com/archives/1529 start to glow green]], then glow orange after [[spoiler: Maxima blows his arm off.]]
* PragmaticVillainy: Twofold. First, he never attempts to kill anyone but Maxima, because [[spoiler: he knows that people can't be violent if they're dead]], and [[spoiler:he doesn't want to cut off his power supply]]. Second, he only attempts to kill Maxima because he believes that she's the only one who stands a chance of stopping him.
* SharpDressedMan: Wears a sharp, dark suit and a NiceHat, and his powers apparently serve to protect these from damage to some extent. However, [[SeriousBusiness he takes off first the hat and then his jacket when preparing to fight the heroes]].
* TheStoner: [[spoiler: Not by his own choice mind you. While imprisoned by ARCHON, [[http://grrlpowercomic.com/archives/1881 they keep him perpetually high as balls and entertained with video games]] to keep him under control.]]
* SuperpowerLottery: As Sydney lampshades, his powerset is no joke.
* SuperStrength: He manifests other powers in due course (and he's certainly quick and tough from the start), and he's quite a ''smart'' fighter in his way, but he's definitely very, very strong, and his physique makes him look the part.
* TalkingTheMonsterToDeath: Sort of. He's finally ''defeated'' by [[spoiler:every super in the fight dogpiling him and holding his head under water. But while he has to spend energy faster than he gains it to keep from drowning, it would still take a while to finally, officially defeat him. So Sydney points out that he can either give up gracefully, or get his head vaporized by Maxima, and he submits to Dabbler's sleep spell]].

to:

* AbstractEater: His main (and possibly only true) superpower; [[spoiler:Vehemence is "an innate user of vehemic energy ... sometimes called vistric energy." The layman's version: he gains power from violence. He makes his debut by sticking around an all out super brawl between a super hero team and a team-up of villains. Only when it's over does he enter the fray himself, now strong enough to go toe-to-toe with one of the most powerful super beings in the world and only making himself stronger for it.]]
* AffablyEvil:
** His ''exact'' motives are kept quiet for a while, but he's certainly not friendly to the heroes.
** However, after showing up for the big fight in a nice suit, [[PetTheDog he has a short, amiable conversation with Sydney]], indicates to her which of the other villains looks most worrying, and then privately hopes that she doesn't get herself killed. He becomes far less affable once he [[BloodKnight starts to fight]], but even then he manages a few jokes during the pauses between punches, and he goes to the trouble of [[MagicPants preserving his modesty]] to [[FullFrontalAssault avoid shocking his opponents too much.]]
** He has a dedication to etiquette that verges on BlueAndOrangeMorality. He'll beat your face in, but he (almost) never swears, and he generally tries to leave his opponents alive [[spoiler: if only so they can come back to commit more violence later]]. He even pointed out to Arc-SWAT that he probably caved in Vekter's ribs and that they should send someone to check on him before the fight really got going.
* TheAgeless: Vehemence's age is unclear; it's not even certain that he's a mortal. However, his knowledge of occult secrets and a casual reference to being present at "the [[UsefulNotes/CivilRightsMovement L.A. Race Riots]]" (which race-related riots in L.A. he means is unclear) suggest that he's certainly been around for some time.
* AmbiguouslyEvil: While he attacks Arc-SWAT with clear intent to take them down, and he manipulated dozens of people into a super-powered battle, he's not shown any desire to cause ''lasting'' harm [[spoiler: past killing Maxima, and then only because she's willing and able Due to kill him]]. He's expressed hope that Sydney survives the night, and prompted Arc-SWAT to check on a guy he just hit, as he may have broken some ribs. Furthermore, he shows no real animosity or malice towards our heroes, even complimenting their fighting ability, and obliging Sydney in some light banter.
* AmbiguouslyHuman: It's not certain whether or not he's human/mortal or not especially given the fact that [[spoiler:the only other users of vehemic energy that Dabbler knows of are a type of demon]], and the hints that he might be TheAgeless.
* ArcVillain: Of the press conference/first superbrawl arc.
* BadassInANiceSuit: Vehemence first [[http://grrlpowercomic.com/archives/1422 appears]] wearing a suit and a tolerably NiceHat.
* BaldOfEvil: All part of his shaven-headed thug look.
* BatmanGambit: He counted on ARC-SWAT to take a "punch first, ask questions later" approach to the supervillain ambush he'd orchestrated [[spoiler: to help fuel his powers]].
* BloodKnight:
** One of the explanations he initially offers for his own actions -- and the one that Maxima finds most plausible.
--->'''Vehemence:''' [[http://grrlpowercomic.com/archives/1490 Fine. I'm just pro-violence, and I'm here to beat the hell out of you.]]
** Actually,
Vehemence's aggro aura it's really because [[spoiler:he draws power from "vehemic energy", which is the psychic hard to say how much of what she did was of her own volition.]]
* {{Intangibility}}: In her
energy form.
* {{Irony}}: Despite her dismissal
of violence itself. He engaged Arc-SWAT because superheroes produce otherwise impossible levels of localized violence, which in turn gives him extraordinary levels of power]]. Which is kind of a very practical reason for being a BloodKnight.
** It's also implied that [[spoiler: vehemic energy [[EvilFeelsGood feels good to him,]] which means that he literally
normal humans, she gets high off of violence.]]
* ChekhovsGunman: First seen [[http://grrlpowercomic.com/archives/1189
incapacitated three times by ordinary humans in the first panel in a strip showing fight. Once by Math, once when Peggy snipes her, and once when she found the potential reactions claymore Peggy set up to guard her position.
* SmugSuper: She's dismissive
of villains to the press conference]], then spends the early stages of the superbrawl just hanging non-supers in the background. Given that subsequent panels in that strip included a huge demon (possibly archdemon) with an axe to grind against Dabbler, as well as Deus, this could mean that he's actually a DiskOneFinalBoss or StarterVillain if the other villains shown also end up being Chekhov's gunmen...
* CombatPragmatist: He grabs Anvil's hair and swings her around with it when he fights her. He also has [[spoiler:no objection to simply trying to ''kill'' Maxima after she manages to hurt him]].
* ConservationOfNinjutsu: Vehemence appears to embody the trope, which is invoked, lampshaded, discussed, and PlayedStraight by and with him. See the main page for more on this. Actually, it
battle. This turns out that [[spoiler:he draws power from violence, so being present at a big fight which thins out both sides powers him up]], thereby justifying the trope in his case.
* CutenessOverload: Is held in a cell with '''Videogame/KirbysEpicYarn''' in order [[http://grrlpowercomic.com/archives/1881 to keep him relaxed.]] He also has a [[AndAllIGotWasThisLousyTShirt lousy T-shirt]], a Mario star, [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic a poster of Twilight]], and a lot of weed smoke.
* DeadpanSnarker: He has his moments, such as when Sydney claims Dabbler (in full succubus form) is from Jersey.
-->'''Vehemence:''' Oh, is ''that'' where they keep the Aetheon thrones? Pull the other one.\\
'''Sydney:''' Not ''New'' Jersey, obviously. ''Old'' Jersey.
poorly for her.
* DistractedByTheSexy: Sydney's plan to stop him involves getting Dabbler to jump rope in front TakenForGranite: She can form an extremely durable body out of him (causing her breasts to jiggle), [[spoiler: countering his [[ThePowerOfHate vehemic energy]] with Dabbler's [[ThePowerOfLove tantric energy]] ]], and causing him to start losing focus and strength.
* DoubleAgent: Implied then averted. His actions in standing back
concrete. If it gets too damaged, she emerges from the big fight and then betraying his own side seem to hint at the trope initially, but he eventually claims not to be working for anyone but himself, and he's certainly not there to help the heroes.
* EarlyBirdCameo: He is depicted several pages before his first "actual" appearance, [[http://grrlpowercomic.com/archives/1189 here.]]
* EvilFeelsGood: Implied to be a part of the reason that [[spoiler: Vehemence is so dedicated to accumulating vehemic energy.]]
* ExactWords: Vehemence is very careful
in what he says. He almost always speaks in terms of his capabilities, implying the threat that he might actually ''use'' those capabilities. [[spoiler: This is because he doesn't really ''have'' any grand ambitions or political goals. He really does just love violence, thanks to his ability to feed on vehemic energy. In fact, he hates the kind of mayhem he was threatening, since too much violence ''now'' means he doesn't get ''any'' violence later.]]
* GagPenis: Judging by the reactions of the cast (including
an "[[Creator/GeorgeTakei Oh myyy...]]"), Vehemence gains one [[http://grrlpowercomic.com/archives/1543 when he hulks out]].
* GeniusBruiser:
** His primary powers are basically SuperStrength and [[NighInvulnerable robustness]], and he looks the part of a hulking thuggish bruiser. However, he is also very shrewd and well-informed.
** He is able to manipulate both other villains and heroes into acting in ways that suit him.
** He recognizes Dabbler's supernatural nature and laughs off her cover story, implying exceptional knowledge of the occult.

A Middle Eastern super willfully mysterious cloaked man in a skull mask who once clashed with Maxima, ending in watches the battle at the restaurant for a long time, shrugging off any attacks that come his supposed death.way, before getting involved. Sydney comments that his cape suggests that he's either an arch-villain or a dork; he rapidly proves to be both, more or less. His powers initially appear to involve EnergyAbsorption, but actually, it's more than that.



* TheAce: He's one of only three people to ever fight Maxima to a standstill.
* BilingualBonus: His only line so far was in Arabic. A direct translation is "I am the dead one. I am much better now". WordOfGod is that it was supposed to say "Dead am I? So much the better."

* TheAce: He's one AdaptiveAbility: His power, in a nutshell, is the ability to adapt to deal with the powers of only whoever he's currently facing off against. There are three people to ever fight Maxima to a standstill.

downsides - one is that it was supposed he has to be able to ''see'' what he's dealing with. Two is that he can't adapt to a power that isn't being used in direct offense to him. Three is that there's a limit to how many adaptations he can have at once; he's vulnerable to a massive team-up.

-->'''Anvil''': I'm going to arrest you just for that. That is the worst name ever.
* NotQuiteDead: Maxima claimed ComboPlatterPowers: Death Toll initially appears to have a wide array of powers capable of dealing with everyone he was dead, though fights. However Sydney is able to figure out that his power is actually [[spoiler: to gain the power to counter whoever is attacking him]] (frequently with enough force to put the attacker out of the fight).
* EnergyAbsorption:
** A common manifestation of his power; he soaks up incoming damage and then turns it back on the attackers in one form or another.
** He absorbs the kinetic energy from Anvil's blow, and all the energy
she had stored up, rendering her own doubts. The exact method of unconscious.
** When Jiggawatt attacks him by turning into lightning and hurling herself at him, he briefly traps her between
his survival hands, and then shoots her out at Stalwart.
* TheGadfly[=/=]YouFightLikeACow: His grandiloquent, obnoxious manner, goading and insulting his opponents at every opportunity, and his extra-flashy costume may simply be designed to provoke opponents into attacking him as much as possible, so they don't realize that he can't do anything unless they do. If so, he arguably manages to overdo it.
* InTheHood: He wears a cowl (admittedly not in black), along with a somewhat PimpedOutCape, purely so he can "look imperious". In other words, he lives and more or less lampshades the trope.
* LogicalWeakness:
** His power requires him to be attacked first so he can then counter whatever
is being thrown at him. So...
** Sydney points out that
as of yet unknown.long as no one attacks him, he's powerless.
** She then suggests another option; lay off the MookChivalry and all hit him at once, so as to overload his powers.
* ManOfKryptonite: Death Toll automatically has whatever power he needs to counter whoever attacks him. However, if no one attacks him, he can't do very much. Also, he can't counter too many opponents at once.
* MookChivalry: Relies heavily on this, goading the heroes into attacking him one by one since there turns out to be a limit to how much he can counter at once. He goes down when multiple heroes hit him together.

[[folder: Vehemence]]
[[quoteright:145:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/vehemence_grrlpower_6367.jpg]]
!!Vehemence/Kevin (last name unknown)

A large, MysteriousStranger who is associated with the villains who attack the heroes at the restaurant, eventually claiming to have organized the action, but who doesn't do much for them for most of the fight. Then he [[FalseFriend turns against them]] -- before challenging all the heroes still standing ''at once.'' While he obviously has super powers, he keeps their precise nature quiet to begine with; just to start with, though, he is able to pass unnoticed through a tornado of flying rocks, and he drops Opal and Vekter with little apparent difficulty after shrugging off some heavy attacks.
----
* AbstractEater: His main (and possibly only true) superpower; [[spoiler:Vehemence is "an innate user of vehemic energy ... sometimes called vistric energy." The layman's version: he gains power from violence. He makes his debut by sticking around an all out super brawl between a super hero team and a team-up of villains. Only when it's over does he enter the fray himself, now strong enough to go toe-to-toe with one of the most powerful super beings in the world and only making himself stronger for it.]]
* AffablyEvil:
** His ''exact'' motives are kept quiet for a while, but he's certainly not friendly to the heroes.
** However, after showing up for the big fight in a nice suit, [[PetTheDog he has a short, amiable conversation with Sydney]], indicates to her which of the other villains looks most worrying, and then privately hopes that she doesn't get herself killed. He becomes far less affable once he [[BloodKnight starts to fight]], but even then he manages a few jokes during the pauses between punches, and he goes to the trouble of [[MagicPants preserving his modesty]] to [[FullFrontalAssault avoid shocking his opponents too much.]]
** He has a dedication to etiquette that verges on BlueAndOrangeMorality. He'll beat your face in, but he (almost) never swears, and he generally tries to leave his opponents alive [[spoiler: if only so they can come back to commit more violence later]]. He even pointed out to Arc-SWAT that he probably caved in Vekter's ribs and that they should send someone to check on him before the fight really got going.
* TheAgeless: Vehemence's age is unclear; it's not even certain that he's a mortal. However, his knowledge of occult secrets and a casual reference to being present at "the [[UsefulNotes/CivilRightsMovement L.A. Race Riots]]" (which race-related riots in L.A. he means is unclear) suggest that he's certainly been around for some time.
* AmbiguouslyEvil: While he attacks Arc-SWAT with clear intent to take them down, and he manipulated dozens of people into a super-powered battle, he's not shown any desire to cause ''lasting'' harm [[spoiler: past killing Maxima, and then only because she's willing and able to kill him]]. He's expressed hope that Sydney survives the night, and prompted Arc-SWAT to check on a guy he just hit, as he may have broken some ribs. Furthermore, he shows no real animosity or malice towards our heroes, even complimenting their fighting ability, and obliging Sydney in some light banter.
* AmbiguouslyHuman: It's not certain whether or not he's human/mortal or not especially given the fact that [[spoiler:the only other users of vehemic energy that Dabbler knows of are a type of demon]], and the hints that he might be TheAgeless.
* ArcVillain: Of the press conference/first superbrawl arc.
* BadassInANiceSuit: Vehemence first [[http://grrlpowercomic.com/archives/1422 appears]] wearing a suit and a tolerably NiceHat.
* BaldOfEvil: All part of his shaven-headed thug look.
* BatmanGambit: He counted on ARC-SWAT to take a "punch first, ask questions later" approach to the supervillain ambush he'd orchestrated [[spoiler: to help fuel his powers]].
* BloodKnight:
** One of the explanations he initially offers for his own actions -- and the one that Maxima finds most plausible.
--->'''Vehemence:''' [[http://grrlpowercomic.com/archives/1490 Fine. I'm just pro-violence, and I'm here to beat the hell out of you.]]
** Actually, it's really because [[spoiler:he draws power from "vehemic energy", which is the psychic energy of violence itself. He engaged Arc-SWAT because superheroes produce otherwise impossible levels of localized violence, which in turn gives him extraordinary levels of power]]. Which is kind of a very practical reason for being a BloodKnight.
** It's also implied that [[spoiler: vehemic energy [[EvilFeelsGood feels good to him,]] which means that he literally gets high off of violence.]]
* ChekhovsGunman: First seen [[http://grrlpowercomic.com/archives/1189 in the first panel in a strip showing the potential reactions of villains to the press conference]], then spends the early stages of the superbrawl just hanging in the background. Given that subsequent panels in that strip included a huge demon (possibly archdemon) with an axe to grind against Dabbler, as well as Deus, this could mean that he's actually a DiskOneFinalBoss or StarterVillain if the other villains shown also end up being Chekhov's gunmen...
* CombatPragmatist: He grabs Anvil's hair and swings her around with it when he fights her. He also has [[spoiler:no objection to simply trying to ''kill'' Maxima after she manages to hurt him]].
* ConservationOfNinjutsu: Vehemence appears to embody the trope, which is invoked, lampshaded, discussed, and PlayedStraight by and with him. See the main page for more on this. Actually, it turns out that [[spoiler:he draws power from violence, so being present at a big fight which thins out both sides powers him up]], thereby justifying the trope in his case.
* CutenessOverload: Is held in a cell with '''Videogame/KirbysEpicYarn''' in order [[http://grrlpowercomic.com/archives/1881 to keep him relaxed.]] He also has a [[AndAllIGotWasThisLousyTShirt lousy T-shirt]], a Mario star, [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic a poster of Twilight]], and a lot of weed smoke.
* DeadpanSnarker: He has his moments, such as when Sydney claims Dabbler (in full succubus form) is from Jersey.
-->'''Vehemence:''' Oh, is ''that'' where they keep the Aetheon thrones? Pull the other one.\\
'''Sydney:''' Not ''New'' Jersey, obviously. ''Old'' Jersey.
* DistractedByTheSexy: Sydney's plan to stop him involves getting Dabbler to jump rope in front of him (causing her breasts to jiggle), [[spoiler: countering his [[ThePowerOfHate vehemic energy]] with Dabbler's [[ThePowerOfLove tantric energy]] ]], and causing him to start losing focus and strength.
* DoubleAgent: Implied then averted. His actions in standing back from the big fight and then betraying his own side seem to hint at the trope initially, but he eventually claims not to be working for anyone but himself, and he's certainly not there to help the heroes.
* EarlyBirdCameo: He is depicted several pages before his first "actual" appearance, [[http://grrlpowercomic.com/archives/1189 here.]]
* EvilFeelsGood: Implied to be a part of the reason that [[spoiler: Vehemence is so dedicated to accumulating vehemic energy.]]
* ExactWords: Vehemence is very careful in what he says. He almost always speaks in terms of his capabilities, implying the threat that he might actually ''use'' those capabilities. [[spoiler: This is because he doesn't really ''have'' any grand ambitions or political goals. He really does just love violence, thanks to his ability to feed on vehemic energy. In fact, he hates the kind of mayhem he was threatening, since too much violence ''now'' means he doesn't get ''any'' violence later.]]
* GagPenis: Judging by the reactions of the cast (including an "[[Creator/GeorgeTakei Oh myyy...]]"), Vehemence gains one [[http://grrlpowercomic.com/archives/1543 when he hulks out]].
* GeniusBruiser:
** His primary powers are basically SuperStrength and [[NighInvulnerable robustness]], and he looks the part of a hulking thuggish bruiser. However, he is also very shrewd and well-informed.
** He is able to manipulate both other villains and heroes into acting in ways that suit him.
** He recognizes Dabbler's supernatural nature and laughs off her cover story, implying exceptional knowledge of the occult.
** He later casts a kind of spell that [[spoiler:causes the defeated villains to wake up and makes them and the heroes to fight among themselves to get more vehemic power]].
* GenreSavvy:
** He not only seems to be on the same wavelength as Sydney, he ''says'' "[[http://grrlpowercomic.com/archives/1484 Dun. Dun. Dunnnnnn.]]" at a crucial moment, and refers to Sydney's genre savviness with amused respect.
** And then there's the moment when he [[http://grrlpowercomic.com/archives/1358 pokes at Dabbler's dropped sword with a stick]] in a very Sydney-like manner.
* GodzillaThreshold: He's usually careful not to kill the people he fights, [[spoiler:since doing so would starve him of his power source]], but after powering up as much as he can he goes in for the kill on Maxima, because he regards her as the only hero who stands a chance of stopping him.
* HealingFactor: Uses this to regenerate his eye, tooth [[spoiler: and arm. Plus whenever he does heal, he gets even stronger]].
* KnowWhenToFoldEm: [[spoiler:Surrenders when Sydney points out it's either that or Maxima frying his head]].
* LightningBruiser: One with [[http://grrlpowercomic.com/archives/1491 a shockingly fast recovery time, at that]].
* LogicalWeakness: [[spoiler:Besides the fact that he needs violence to fuel his powers, and thus isn't much of a threat if no-one is fighting within his range, it's possible to hit him hard enough that the benefits he gets from the violence are outweighed by the damage done.]]
* MagicPants: Vehemence averts and then invokes this trope in a literally magical form when he has absorbed a very large amount of "vehemic energy". He uses it to grow to twice his normal size -- [[http://grrlpowercomic.com/archives/1543 with all-too-realistic consequences for his clothes.]] However, he then flaunts just how much power he has acquired by using some of it to create himself a new pair of pants, complete with accompanying [[UnsoundEffect Ka-pants]].
* ManipulativeBastard: Orchestrated the whole superbrawl, roping in all of the supers he knew who could possibly be partial to it [[MoreThanMindControl (and some who normally wouldn't be, it seems...)]] and banked on [=ArcSWAT=] to react the way they did [[spoiler: to fuel up his powers from all the violence]].
* MoreThanMindControl: [[spoiler: His control over vehemic energy extends to instilling and exacerbating violent tendencies in others; when powered up, he used his vehemic aura to wake up almost every knocked out super and make them fight each other indiscriminately, and post-battle conversations with some of the attacking supers stongly suggest that he used his aura to ramp up their aggression to the point where they thought the brawl was a good idea, [[OOCIsSeriousBusiness which they likely never would have thought otherwise.]]]]
* MotiveRant: Subverted. At one point, he claims he'll start wars all over the world to fuel his powers, but...
-->'''Vehemence:''' Actually Colonel, I'm not planning on doing any of that. It's just the sort of thing a guy like me is supposed to say. The world could use a good kick in the ass don't get me wrong, but war is unruly. I enjoy a good scrap is all. Think I'll take in a sports riot next. Brazil perhaps.
* MysteriousStranger: His initial style, standing off to the side watching as the members of the villain team battle with the members of Arc-SWAT, and then having a polite conversation with Sydney. Also, Maxima refuses to believe his first explanation for his actions.
* MysteriousWatcher: Although the other villains are willing to regard him as one of their own, he just watches while they fight. Sydney is rightly concerned by this mystery.
* NewPowersAsThePlotDemands: Towards the climax of his fight against the team; justified in that [[spoiler: by that point he's absorbed so much vehemic energy that he can use it in almost any way he sees fit]].
* NighInvulnerable: Just for a start, Vekter hits him with a car which explodes on impact, and the only damage we see is his suit sleeve being slightly ripped. [[spoiler: He becomes even more resilient as the fight continues.]]
* PetTheDog: He seems to have a certain fondness for Sydney; she's the one he's referring to in his character pic above.
* PoliticallyIncorrectVillain: Vehemence says that he has gained more energy from his fight with Arc-SWAT than he got from the [[UsefulNotes/CivilRightsMovement L.A. Race Riots.]] That said, [[AmbiguouslyEvil he doesn't say whether he took part]].
* PowerGlows: The more [[spoiler: vehemic energy he absorbs,]] the stronger he gets and the more his tattoos glow.
* PowerTattoo: Seems to be the case, as his tattoos are blue-lavender at the beginning of a fight, then [[http://grrlpowercomic.com/archives/1529 start to glow green]], then glow orange after [[spoiler: Maxima blows his arm off.]]
* PragmaticVillainy: Twofold. First, he never attempts to kill anyone but Maxima, because [[spoiler: he knows that people can't be violent if they're dead]], and [[spoiler:he doesn't want to cut off his power supply]]. Second, he only attempts to kill Maxima because he believes that she's the only one who stands a chance of stopping him.
* SharpDressedMan: Wears a sharp, dark suit and a NiceHat, and his powers apparently serve to protect these from damage to some extent. However, [[SeriousBusiness he takes off first the hat and then his jacket when preparing to fight the heroes]].
* TheStoner: [[spoiler: Not by his own choice mind you. While imprisoned by ARCHON, [[http://grrlpowercomic.com/archives/1881 they keep him perpetually high as balls and entertained with video games]] to keep him under control.]]
* SuperpowerLottery: As Sydney lampshades, his powerset is no joke.
* SuperStrength: He manifests other powers in due course (and he's certainly quick and tough from the start), and he's quite a ''smart'' fighter in his way, but he's definitely very, very strong, and his physique makes him look the part.
* TalkingTheMonsterToDeath: Sort of. He's finally ''defeated'' by [[spoiler:every super in the fight dogpiling him and holding his head under water. But while he has to spend energy faster than he gains it to keep from drowning, it would still take a while to finally, officially defeat him. So Sydney points out that he can either give up gracefully, or get his head vaporized by Maxima, and he submits to Dabbler's sleep spell]].

A willfully mysterious cloaked man in a skull mask who watches the battle at the restaurant for a long time, shrugging off any attacks that come his way, before getting involved. Sydney comments that his cape suggests that he's either an arch-villain or a dork; he rapidly proves to be both, more or less.

->''"Unbelievable, even better than I'd hoped. Heh heh heh heh..."''

A willfully mysterious cloaked man in a skull mask who watches businessman, the battle at head of Machina Industries, which supplies ARCHON with some of its equipment. He's apparently being set up as a villain for the restaurant for a long time, shrugging off any attacks that come his way, before getting involved. Sydney comments that his cape suggests that comic, but he's either an arch-villain or a dork; he rapidly proves not done anything ''actively'' hostile to the heroes yet -- just spied on and subverted members of the team. He seems to be both, more or less. His powers initially appear to involve EnergyAbsorption, but actually, it's more than that.interested in manipulating them.



* AdaptiveAbility: His power, in a nutshell, is the ability to adapt to deal with the powers of whoever he's currently facing off against. There are three downsides - one is that he has to be able to ''see'' what he's dealing with. Two is that he can't adapt to a power that isn't being used in direct offense to him. Three is that there's a limit to how many adaptations he can have at once; he's vulnerable to a massive team-up.
* AtrociousAlias: The absurdity of his villain name has been noted by the heroes ''and'' his fellow villains. He seems to be the only one who thinks it's cool. But of course, it's really ''provocative''.
-->'''Anvil''': I'm going to arrest you just for that. That is the worst name ever.
* ComboPlatterPowers: Death Toll initially appears to have a wide array of powers capable of dealing with everyone he fights. However Sydney is able to figure out that his power is actually [[spoiler: to gain the power to counter whoever is attacking him]] (frequently with enough force to put the attacker out of the fight).
* EnergyAbsorption:
** A common manifestation of his power; he soaks up incoming damage and then turns it back on the attackers in one form or another.
** He absorbs the kinetic energy from Anvil's blow, and all the energy she had stored up, rendering her unconscious.
** When Jiggawatt attacks him by turning into lightning and hurling herself at him, he briefly traps her between his hands, and then shoots her out at Stalwart.
* TheGadfly[=/=]YouFightLikeACow: His grandiloquent, obnoxious manner, goading and insulting his opponents at every opportunity, and his extra-flashy costume may simply be designed to provoke opponents into attacking him as much as possible, so they don't realize that he can't do anything unless they do. If so, he arguably manages to overdo it.
* InTheHood: He wears a cowl (admittedly not in black), along with a somewhat PimpedOutCape, purely so he can "look imperious". In other words, he lives and more or less lampshades the trope.
* LogicalWeakness:
** His power requires him to be attacked first so he can then counter whatever is being thrown at him. So...
** Sydney points out that as long as no one attacks him, he's powerless.
** She then suggests another option; lay off the MookChivalry and all hit him at once, so as to overload his powers.
* ManOfKryptonite: Death Toll automatically has whatever power he needs to counter whoever attacks him. However, if no one attacks him, he can't do very much. Also, he can't counter too many opponents at once.
* MookChivalry: Relies heavily on this, goading the heroes into attacking him one by one since there turns out to be a limit to how much he can counter at once. He goes down when multiple heroes hit him together.

* AbstractEater: His main (and possibly only true) superpower; [[spoiler:Vehemence is "an innate user of vehemic energy ... sometimes called vistric energy." The layman's version: he gains power from violence. He makes his debut by sticking around an all out super brawl between a super hero team and a team-up of villains. Only when it's over does he enter the fray himself, now strong enough to go toe-to-toe with one of the most powerful super beings in the world and only making himself stronger for it.]]
* AffablyEvil:
** His ''exact'' motives are kept quiet for a while, but he's certainly not friendly to the heroes.
** However, after showing up for the big fight in a nice suit, [[PetTheDog he has a short, amiable conversation with Sydney]], indicates to her which of the other villains looks most worrying, and then privately hopes that she doesn't get herself killed. He becomes far less affable once he [[BloodKnight starts to fight]], but even then he manages a few jokes during the pauses between punches, and he goes to the trouble of [[MagicPants preserving his modesty]] to [[FullFrontalAssault avoid shocking his opponents too much.]]
** He has a dedication to etiquette that verges on BlueAndOrangeMorality. He'll beat your face in, but he (almost) never swears, and he generally tries to leave his opponents alive [[spoiler: if only so they can come back to commit more violence later]]. He even pointed out to Arc-SWAT that he probably caved in Vekter's ribs and that they should send someone to check on him before the fight really got going.
* TheAgeless: Vehemence's age is unclear; it's not even certain that he's a mortal. However, his knowledge of occult secrets and a casual reference to being present at "the [[UsefulNotes/CivilRightsMovement L.A. Race Riots]]" (which race-related riots in L.A. he means is unclear) suggest that he's certainly been around for some time.
* AmbiguouslyEvil: While he attacks Arc-SWAT with clear intent to take them down, and he manipulated dozens of people into a super-powered battle, he's not shown any desire to cause ''lasting'' harm [[spoiler: past killing Maxima, and then only because she's willing and able to kill him]]. He's expressed hope that Sydney survives the night, and prompted Arc-SWAT to check on a guy he just hit, as he may have broken some ribs. Furthermore, he shows no real animosity or malice towards our heroes, even complimenting their fighting ability, and obliging Sydney in some light banter.
* AmbiguouslyHuman: It's not certain whether or not he's human/mortal or not especially given the fact that [[spoiler:the only other users of vehemic energy that Dabbler knows of are a type of demon]], and the hints that he might be TheAgeless.
* ArcVillain: Of the press conference/first superbrawl arc.
* BadassInANiceSuit: Vehemence first [[http://grrlpowercomic.com/archives/1422 appears]] wearing a suit and a tolerably NiceHat.
* BaldOfEvil: All part of his shaven-headed thug look.
* BatmanGambit: He counted on ARC-SWAT to take a "punch first, ask questions later" approach to the supervillain ambush he'd orchestrated [[spoiler: to help fuel his powers]].
* BloodKnight:
** One of the explanations he initially offers for his own actions -- and the one that Maxima finds most plausible.
--->'''Vehemence:''' [[http://grrlpowercomic.com/archives/1490 Fine. I'm just pro-violence, and I'm here to beat the hell out of you.]]
** Actually, it's really because [[spoiler:he draws power from "vehemic energy", which is the psychic energy of violence itself. He engaged Arc-SWAT because superheroes produce otherwise impossible levels of localized violence, which in turn gives him extraordinary levels of power]]. Which is kind of a very practical reason for being a BloodKnight.
** It's also implied that [[spoiler: vehemic energy [[EvilFeelsGood feels good to him,]] which means that he literally gets high off of violence.]]
* ChekhovsGunman: First seen [[http://grrlpowercomic.com/archives/1189 in the first panel in a strip showing the potential reactions of villains to the press conference]], then spends the early stages of the superbrawl just hanging in the background. Given that subsequent panels in that strip included a huge demon (possibly archdemon) with an axe to grind against Dabbler, as well as Deus, this could mean that he's actually a DiskOneFinalBoss or StarterVillain if the other villains shown also end up being Chekhov's gunmen...
* CombatPragmatist: He grabs Anvil's hair and swings her around with it when he fights her. He also has [[spoiler:no objection to simply trying to ''kill'' Maxima after she manages to hurt him]].
* ConservationOfNinjutsu: Vehemence appears to embody the trope, which is invoked, lampshaded, discussed, and PlayedStraight by and with him. See the main page for more on this. Actually, it turns out that [[spoiler:he draws power from violence, so being present at a big fight which thins out both sides powers him up]], thereby justifying the trope in his case.
* CutenessOverload: Is held in a cell with '''Videogame/KirbysEpicYarn''' in order [[http://grrlpowercomic.com/archives/1881 to keep him relax.]] He also has a [[AndAllIGotWasThisLousyTShirt lousy T-shirt]], a Mario star, [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic a poster of Twilight]], and a lot of weed smoke.
* DeadpanSnarker: He has his moments, such as when Sydney claims Dabbler (in full succubus form) is from Jersey.
-->'''Vehemence:''' Oh, is ''that'' where they keep the Aetheon thrones? Pull the other one.\\
'''Sydney:''' Not ''New'' Jersey, obviously. ''Old'' Jersey.
* DistractedByTheSexy: Sydney's plan to stop him involves getting Dabbler to jump rope in front of him (causing her breasts to jiggle), [[spoiler: countering his [[ThePowerOfHate vehemic energy]] with Dabbler's [[ThePowerOfLove tantric energy]] ]], and causing him to start losing focus and strength.
* DoubleAgent: Implied then averted. His actions in standing back from the big fight and then betraying his own side seem to hint at the trope initially, but he eventually claims not to be working for anyone but himself, and he's certainly not there to help the heroes.
* EarlyBirdCameo: He is depicted several pages before his first "actual" appearance, [[http://grrlpowercomic.com/archives/1189 here.]]
* EvilFeelsGood: Implied to be a part of the reason that [[spoiler: Vehemence is so dedicated to accumulating vehemic energy.]]
* ExactWords: Vehemence is very careful in what he says. He almost always speaks in terms of his capabilities, implying the threat that he might actually ''use'' those capabilities. [[spoiler: This is because he doesn't really ''have'' any grand ambitions or political goals. He really does just love violence, thanks to his ability to feed on vehemic energy. In fact, he hates the kind of mayhem he was threatening, since too much violence ''now'' means he doesn't get ''any'' violence later.]]
* GagPenis: Judging by the reactions of the cast (including an "[[Creator/GeorgeTakei Oh myyy...]]"), Vehemence gains one [[http://grrlpowercomic.com/archives/1543 when he hulks out]].
* GeniusBruiser:
** His primary powers are basically SuperStrength and [[NighInvulnerable robustness]], and he looks the part of a hulking thuggish bruiser. However, he is also very shrewd and well-informed.
** He is able to manipulate both other villains and heroes into acting in ways that suit him.
** He recognizes Dabbler's supernatural nature and laughs off her cover story, implying exceptional knowledge of the occult.
** He later casts a kind of spell that [[spoiler:causes the defeated villains to wake up and makes them and the heroes to fight among themselves to get more vehemic power]].
* GenreSavvy:
** He not only seems to be on the same wavelength as Sydney, he ''says'' "[[http://grrlpowercomic.com/archives/1484 Dun. Dun. Dunnnnnn.]]" at a crucial moment, and refers to Sydney's genre savviness with amused respect.
** And then there's the moment when he [[http://grrlpowercomic.com/archives/1358 pokes at Dabbler's dropped sword with a stick]] in a very Sydney-like manner.
* GodzillaThreshold: He's usually careful not to kill the people he fights, [[spoiler:since doing so would starve him of his power source]], but after powering up as much as he can he goes in for the kill on Maxima, because he regards her as the only hero who stands a chance of stopping him.
* HealingFactor: Uses this to regenerate his eye, tooth [[spoiler: and arm. Plus whenever he does heal, he gets even stronger]].
* KnowWhenToFoldEm: [[spoiler:Surrenders when Sydney points out it's either that or Maxima frying his head]].
* LightningBruiser: One with [[http://grrlpowercomic.com/archives/1491 a shockingly fast recovery time, at that]].
* LogicalWeakness: [[spoiler:Besides the fact that he needs violence to fuel his powers, and thus isn't much of a threat if no-one is fighting within his range, it's possible to hit him hard enough that the benefits he gets from the violence are outweighed by the damage done.]]
* MagicPants: Vehemence averts and then invokes this trope in a literally magical form when he has absorbed a very large amount of "vehemic energy". He uses it to grow to twice his normal size -- [[http://grrlpowercomic.com/archives/1543 with all-too-realistic consequences for his clothes.]] However, he then flaunts just how much power he has acquired by using some of it to create himself a new pair of pants, complete with accompanying [[UnsoundEffect Ka-pants]].
* ManipulativeBastard: Orchestrated the whole superbrawl, roping in all of the supers he knew who could possibly be partial to it [[MoreThanMindControl (and some who normally wouldn't be, it seems...)]] and banked on [=ArcSWAT=] to react the way they did [[spoiler: to fuel up his powers from all the violence]].
* MoreThanMindControl: [[spoiler: His control over vehemic energy extends to instilling and exacerbating violent tendencies in others; when powered up, he used his vehemic aura to wake up almost every knocked out super and make them fight each other indiscriminately, and post-battle conversations with some of the attacking supers stongly suggest that he used his aura to ramp up their aggression to the point where they thought the brawl was a good idea, [[OOCIsSeriousBusiness which they likely never would have thought otherwise.]]]]
* MotiveRant: Subverted. At one point, he claims he'll start wars all over the world to fuel his powers, but...
-->'''Vehemence:''' Actually Colonel, I'm not planning on doing any of that. It's just the sort of thing a guy like me is supposed to say. The world could use a good kick in the ass don't get me wrong, but war is unruly. I enjoy a good scrap is all. Think I'll take in a sports riot next. Brazil perhaps.
* MysteriousStranger: His initial style, standing off to the side watching as the members of the villain team battle with the members of Arc-SWAT, and then having a polite conversation with Sydney. Also, Maxima refuses to believe his first explanation for his actions.
* MysteriousWatcher: Although the other villains are willing to regard him as one of their own, he just watches while they fight. Sydney is rightly concerned by this mystery.
* NewPowersAsThePlotDemands: Towards the climax of his fight against the team; justified in that [[spoiler: by that point he's absorbed so much vehemic energy that he can use it in almost any way he sees fit]].
* NighInvulnerable: Just for a start, Vekter hits him with a car which explodes on impact, and the only damage we see is his suit sleeve being slightly ripped. [[spoiler: He becomes even more resilient as the fight continues.]]
* PetTheDog: He seems to have a certain fondness for Sydney; she's the one he's referring to in his character pic above.
* PoliticallyIncorrectVillain: Vehemence says that he has gained more energy from his fight with Arc-SWAT than he got from the [[UsefulNotes/CivilRightsMovement L.A. Race Riots.]] That said, [[AmbiguouslyEvil he doesn't say whether he took part]].
* PowerGlows: The more [[spoiler: vehemic energy he absorbs,]] the stronger he gets and the more his tattoos glow.
* PowerTattoo: Seems to be the case, as his tattoos are blue-lavender at the beginning of a fight, then [[http://grrlpowercomic.com/archives/1529 start to glow green]], then glow orange after [[spoiler: Maxima blows his arm off.]]
* PragmaticVillainy: Twofold. First, he never attempts to kill anyone but Maxima, because [[spoiler: he knows that people can't be violent if they're dead]], and [[spoiler:he doesn't want to cut off his power supply]]. Second, he only attempts to kill Maxima because he believes that she's the only one who stands a chance of stopping him.
* SharpDressedMan: Wears a sharp, dark suit and a NiceHat, and his powers apparently serve to protect these from damage to some extent. However, [[SeriousBusiness he takes off first the hat and then his jacket when preparing to fight the heroes]].
* TheStoner: [[spoiler: Not by his own choice mind you. While imprisoned by ARCHON, [[http://grrlpowercomic.com/archives/1881 they keep him perpetually high as balls and entertained with video games]] to keep him under control.]]
* SuperpowerLottery: As Sydney lampshades, his powerset is no joke.
* SuperStrength: He manifests other powers in due course (and he's certainly quick and tough from the start), and he's quite a ''smart'' fighter in his way, but he's definitely very, very strong, and his physique makes him look the part.
* TalkingTheMonsterToDeath: Sort of. He's finally ''defeated'' by [[spoiler:every super in the fight dogpiling him and holding his head under water. But while he has to spend energy faster than he gains it to keep from drowning, it would still take a while to finally, officially defeat him. So Sydney points out that he can either give up gracefully, or get his head vaporized by Maxima, and he submits to Dabbler's sleep spell]].

to:

* AbstractEater: His main (and possibly DelinquentHair: It's not known whether Vekter's hair is green because of a genetic mutation associated with his powers, a dye job, or something else -- but in any case, his hairstyle definitely tends to the (maybe rather over-aged) delinquent look.
* LikeAnOldMarriedCouple: There are hints from the first, subsequently confirmed, that Vekter and Opal are [[BattleCouple in a relationship]]. This presumably explains the persistent sense of very mild snarking in their dialogue.
* MindOverMatter: Vekter is a telekinetic. That seems to be his
only true) superpower; [[spoiler:Vehemence is "an innate user of vehemic energy ... sometimes called vistric energy." The layman's version: he gains power from violence. He makes his debut by sticking around an all out super brawl between a super hero team and a team-up of villains. Only when it's over does he enter the fray himself, now strong enough to go toe-to-toe with one of the most powerful super beings in the world and only making himself stronger for it.]]
* AffablyEvil:
** His ''exact'' motives are kept quiet for a while,
power, but he's certainly not friendly to the heroes.
** However, after showing up for the big fight in a nice suit, [[PetTheDog he has a short, amiable conversation
formidable with Sydney]], indicates it; he can not only throw heavy stuff at people, he can direct teammates' semi-material attacks for a "homing" effect, create a tornado of flying rocks around his own position as a defense, or throw a rock accurately enough to her which knock a weapon out of the other villains looks most worrying, an opponent's hand.
* MundaneUtility: Like Opal, he works for Deus, using his telekinesis to shift cargo. Unlike Opal, he gets bored easily,
and then privately hopes that she doesn't get herself killed. He becomes far less affable once he [[BloodKnight starts to fight]], but even then he manages a few jokes during the pauses between punches, and Deus implies he goes to the around looking for trouble of [[MagicPants preserving on his modesty]] to [[FullFrontalAssault avoid shocking his opponents too much.]]
** He has a dedication to etiquette that verges on BlueAndOrangeMorality. He'll beat your face in, but he (almost) never swears, and he generally tries to leave his opponents alive [[spoiler: if only so they can come back to commit more violence later]]. He even pointed out to Arc-SWAT that he probably caved in Vekter's ribs and that they should send someone to check on him before the fight really got going.
* TheAgeless: Vehemence's age is unclear; it's not even certain that he's a mortal. However, his knowledge of occult secrets and a casual reference to being present at "the [[UsefulNotes/CivilRightsMovement L.A. Race Riots]]" (which race-related riots in L.A. he means is unclear) suggest that he's certainly been around for some
off time.
* AmbiguouslyEvil: While he attacks Arc-SWAT with clear intent to take them down, and he manipulated dozens of people into a super-powered battle, he's not shown any desire to cause ''lasting'' harm [[spoiler: past killing Maxima, and then only because she's willing and able to kill him]]. He's expressed hope that Sydney survives the night, and prompted Arc-SWAT to check on a guy he just hit, as he may have broken some ribs. Furthermore, he shows no real animosity or malice towards our heroes, even complimenting their fighting ability, and obliging Sydney in some light banter.
* AmbiguouslyHuman: It's not certain whether or not he's human/mortal or not especially given the fact that [[spoiler:the only other users of vehemic energy that Dabbler knows of are a type of demon]], and the hints that he might be TheAgeless.
* ArcVillain: Of the press conference/first superbrawl arc.
* BadassInANiceSuit:
UnwittingPawn: Vehemence first [[http://grrlpowercomic.com/archives/1422 appears]] wearing a suit and a tolerably NiceHat.
* BaldOfEvil: All part of his shaven-headed thug look.
* BatmanGambit: He counted on ARC-SWAT to take a "punch first, ask questions later" approach to the supervillain ambush he'd orchestrated [[spoiler: to help fuel his powers]].
* BloodKnight:
** One of the explanations he initially offers for his own actions -- and the one that Maxima finds most plausible.
--->'''Vehemence:''' [[http://grrlpowercomic.com/archives/1490 Fine. I'm just pro-violence, and I'm here to beat the hell out of you.]]
** Actually, it's really because [[spoiler:he draws power from "vehemic energy", which is the psychic energy of violence itself. He engaged Arc-SWAT because superheroes produce otherwise impossible levels of localized violence, which in turn gives him extraordinary levels of power]]. Which is kind of a very practical reason for being a BloodKnight.
** It's also implied that [[spoiler: vehemic energy [[EvilFeelsGood feels good to him,]] which means
claims that he literally gets high off of violence.]]
* ChekhovsGunman: First seen [[http://grrlpowercomic.com/archives/1189 in the first panel in a strip showing the potential reactions of villains to the press conference]], then spends the early stages of the superbrawl just hanging in the background. Given that subsequent panels in that strip included a huge demon (possibly archdemon) with an axe to grind against Dabbler, as well as Deus, this could mean that he's actually a DiskOneFinalBoss or StarterVillain if the other villains shown also end up being Chekhov's gunmen...
* CombatPragmatist: He grabs Anvil's hair and swings her around with it when he fights her. He also has [[spoiler:no objection to simply trying to ''kill'' Maxima after she manages to hurt him]].
* ConservationOfNinjutsu: Vehemence appears to embody the trope, which is invoked, lampshaded, discussed, and PlayedStraight by and with him. See the main page for more on this. Actually, it turns out that [[spoiler:he draws power from violence, so being present at a big fight which thins out both sides powers him up]], thereby justifying the trope in his case.
* CutenessOverload: Is held in a cell with '''Videogame/KirbysEpicYarn''' in order [[http://grrlpowercomic.com/archives/1881 to keep him relax.]] He also has a [[AndAllIGotWasThisLousyTShirt lousy T-shirt]], a Mario star, [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic a poster of Twilight]], and a lot of weed smoke.
* DeadpanSnarker: He has his moments, such as when Sydney claims Dabbler (in full succubus form) is from Jersey.
-->'''Vehemence:''' Oh, is ''that'' where they keep the Aetheon thrones? Pull the other one.\\
'''Sydney:''' Not ''New'' Jersey, obviously. ''Old'' Jersey.
* DistractedByTheSexy: Sydney's plan to stop him involves getting Dabbler to jump rope in front of him (causing her breasts to jiggle), [[spoiler: countering his [[ThePowerOfHate vehemic energy]] with Dabbler's [[ThePowerOfLove tantric energy]] ]], and causing him to start losing focus and strength.
* DoubleAgent: Implied then averted. His actions in standing back from the big fight and then betraying his own side seem to hint at the trope initially, but he eventually claims not to be working for anyone but himself, and he's certainly not there to help the heroes.
* EarlyBirdCameo: He is depicted several pages before his first "actual" appearance, [[http://grrlpowercomic.com/archives/1189 here.]]
* EvilFeelsGood: Implied to be a part of the reason that [[spoiler: Vehemence is so dedicated to accumulating vehemic energy.]]
* ExactWords: Vehemence is very careful in what he says. He almost always speaks in terms of his capabilities, implying the threat that he might actually ''use'' those capabilities. [[spoiler: This is because he doesn't really ''have'' any grand ambitions or political goals. He really does just love violence, thanks to his ability to feed on vehemic energy. In fact, he hates the kind of mayhem he was threatening, since too much violence ''now'' means he doesn't get ''any'' violence later.]]
* GagPenis: Judging by the reactions of the cast (including an "[[Creator/GeorgeTakei Oh myyy...]]"), Vehemence gains one [[http://grrlpowercomic.com/archives/1543 when he hulks out]].
* GeniusBruiser:
** His primary powers are basically SuperStrength and [[NighInvulnerable robustness]], and he looks the part of a hulking thuggish bruiser. However, he is also very shrewd and well-informed.
** He is able to manipulate both other villains and heroes into acting in ways that suit him.
** He recognizes Dabbler's supernatural nature and laughs off her cover story, implying exceptional knowledge of the occult.
** He later casts a kind of spell that [[spoiler:causes the defeated villains to wake up and makes them and the heroes to fight among themselves to get more vehemic power]].
* GenreSavvy:
** He not only seems to be on the same wavelength as Sydney, he ''says'' "[[http://grrlpowercomic.com/archives/1484 Dun. Dun. Dunnnnnn.]]" at a crucial moment, and refers to Sydney's genre savviness with amused respect.
** And then there's the moment when he [[http://grrlpowercomic.com/archives/1358 pokes at Dabbler's dropped sword with a stick]] in a very Sydney-like manner.
* GodzillaThreshold: He's usually careful not to kill the people he fights, [[spoiler:since doing so would starve him of his power source]], but after powering up as much as he can he goes in for the kill on Maxima, because he regards her as the only hero who stands a chance of stopping him.
* HealingFactor: Uses this to regenerate his eye, tooth [[spoiler: and arm. Plus whenever he does heal, he gets even stronger]].
* KnowWhenToFoldEm: [[spoiler:Surrenders when Sydney points out it's either that or Maxima frying his head]].
* LightningBruiser: One with [[http://grrlpowercomic.com/archives/1491 a shockingly fast recovery time, at that]].
* LogicalWeakness: [[spoiler:Besides the fact that he needs violence to fuel his powers, and thus isn't much of a threat if no-one is fighting within his range, it's possible to hit him hard enough that the benefits he gets from the violence are outweighed by the damage done.]]
* MagicPants: Vehemence averts and then invokes this trope in a literally magical form when he has absorbed a very large amount of "vehemic energy". He uses it to grow to twice his normal size -- [[http://grrlpowercomic.com/archives/1543 with all-too-realistic consequences for his clothes.]] However, he then flaunts just how much power he has acquired by using some of it to create himself a new pair of pants, complete with accompanying [[UnsoundEffect Ka-pants]].
* ManipulativeBastard: Orchestrated the whole superbrawl, roping in all of the supers he knew who could possibly be partial to it [[MoreThanMindControl (and some who normally wouldn't be, it seems...)]] and banked on [=ArcSWAT=] to react the way they did [[spoiler: to fuel up his powers from all the violence]].
* MoreThanMindControl: [[spoiler: His control over vehemic energy extends to instilling and exacerbating violent tendencies in others; when powered up, he used his vehemic aura to wake up almost every knocked out super and make them fight each other indiscriminately, and post-battle conversations with some of the attacking supers stongly suggest that he used his aura to ramp up their aggression to the point where they thought the brawl was a good idea, [[OOCIsSeriousBusiness which they likely never would have thought otherwise.]]]]
* MotiveRant: Subverted. At one point, he claims he'll start wars all over the world to fuel his powers, but...
-->'''Vehemence:''' Actually Colonel, I'm not planning on doing any of that. It's just the sort of thing a guy like me is supposed to say. The world could use a good kick in the ass don't get me wrong, but war is unruly. I enjoy a good scrap is all. Think I'll take in a sports riot next. Brazil perhaps.
* MysteriousStranger: His initial style, standing off to the side watching as the members of
let Vekter think assembling the villain team battle with the members of Arc-SWAT, and then having a polite conversation with Sydney. Also, Maxima refuses group to believe his first explanation for his actions.
* MysteriousWatcher: Although the other villains are willing to regard him as one of their own, he just watches while they fight. Sydney is rightly concerned by this mystery.
* NewPowersAsThePlotDemands: Towards the climax of his fight against the team; justified in that [[spoiler: by that point he's absorbed so much vehemic energy that he can use it in almost any way he sees fit]].
* NighInvulnerable: Just for a start, Vekter hits him with a car which explodes on impact, and the only damage we see is his suit sleeve being slightly ripped. [[spoiler: He becomes even more resilient as the fight continues.]]
* PetTheDog: He seems to have a certain fondness for Sydney; she's the one he's referring to in his character pic above.
* PoliticallyIncorrectVillain: Vehemence says that he has gained more energy from his fight with Arc-SWAT than he got from the [[UsefulNotes/CivilRightsMovement L.A. Race Riots.]] That said, [[AmbiguouslyEvil he doesn't say whether he took part]].
* PowerGlows: The more [[spoiler: vehemic energy he absorbs,]] the stronger he gets and the more his tattoos glow.
* PowerTattoo: Seems to be the case, as his tattoos are blue-lavender at the beginning of a fight, then [[http://grrlpowercomic.com/archives/1529 start to glow green]], then glow orange after [[spoiler: Maxima blows his arm off.]]
* PragmaticVillainy: Twofold. First, he never attempts to kill anyone but Maxima, because [[spoiler: he knows that people can't be violent if they're dead]], and [[spoiler:he doesn't want to cut off his power supply]]. Second, he only attempts to kill Maxima because he believes that she's the only one who stands a chance of stopping him.
* SharpDressedMan: Wears a sharp, dark suit and a NiceHat, and his powers apparently serve to protect these from damage to some extent. However, [[SeriousBusiness he takes off first the hat and then his jacket when preparing to fight the heroes]].
* TheStoner: [[spoiler: Not by
attack ARCHON was his own choice mind you. While imprisoned by ARCHON, [[http://grrlpowercomic.com/archives/1881 they keep him perpetually high idea, but it as balls and entertained with video games]] to keep him under control.]]

The only reason she has been able to evade them a skull mask who watches the battle at the restaurant for so a long is because her ability to turn to stone keeps her from leaving time, shrugging off any DNA evidence behind.attacks that come his way, before getting involved. Sydney comments that his cape suggests that he's either an arch-villain or a dork; he rapidly proves to be both, more or less. His powers initially appear to involve EnergyAbsorption, but actually, it's more than that.



* AttentionWhore: Despite not leaving any DNA evidence at any of her encounters, she's constantly posting about them on social media. This is how Archon eventually starts tracking her.
* ElementalShapeshifter: She can turn into a super-strong and flexible green stone golem.
* ImpossiblyCoolClothes: Her costume is extremely form-fitting with no straps for her bra. Possible in real life, but extremely impractical for a fight. Sydney theorizes that she glues it to herself after she turns to stone.

to:

* AttentionWhore: Despite not leaving any DNA evidence AdaptiveAbility: His power, in a nutshell, is the ability to adapt to deal with the powers of whoever he's currently facing off against. There are three downsides - one is that he has to be able to ''see'' what he's dealing with. Two is that he can't adapt to a power that isn't being used in direct offense to him. Three is that there's a limit to how many adaptations he can have at any once; he's vulnerable to a massive team-up.
* AtrociousAlias: The absurdity
of his villain name has been noted by the heroes ''and'' his fellow villains. He seems to be the only one who thinks it's cool. But of course, it's really ''provocative''.
-->'''Anvil''': I'm going to arrest you just for that. That is the worst name ever.
* ComboPlatterPowers: Death Toll initially appears to have a wide array of powers capable of dealing with everyone he fights. However Sydney is able to figure out that his power is actually [[spoiler: to gain the power to counter whoever is attacking him]] (frequently with enough force to put the attacker out of the fight).
* EnergyAbsorption:
** A common manifestation of his power; he soaks up incoming damage and then turns it back on the attackers in one form or another.
** He absorbs the kinetic energy from Anvil's blow, and all the energy she had stored up, rendering
her encounters, she's constantly posting about them on social media. This is how Archon eventually starts tracking her.
* ElementalShapeshifter: She can turn
unconscious.
** When Jiggawatt attacks him by turning
into a super-strong lightning and flexible green stone golem.
hurling herself at him, he briefly traps her between his hands, and then shoots her out at Stalwart.
* ImpossiblyCoolClothes: Her TheGadfly[=/=]YouFightLikeACow: His grandiloquent, obnoxious manner, goading and insulting his opponents at every opportunity, and his extra-flashy costume is extremely form-fitting may simply be designed to provoke opponents into attacking him as much as possible, so they don't realize that he can't do anything unless they do. If so, he arguably manages to overdo it.
* InTheHood: He wears a cowl (admittedly not in black), along
with no straps for her bra. Possible in real life, but extremely impractical for a fight. somewhat PimpedOutCape, purely so he can "look imperious". In other words, he lives and more or less lampshades the trope.
* LogicalWeakness:
** His power requires him to be attacked first so he can then counter whatever is being thrown at him. So...
**
Sydney theorizes points out that she glues it as long as no one attacks him, he's powerless.
** She then suggests another option; lay off the MookChivalry and all hit him at once, so as
to herself after she overload his powers.
* ManOfKryptonite: Death Toll automatically has whatever power he needs to counter whoever attacks him. However, if no one attacks him, he can't do very much. Also, he can't counter too many opponents at once.
* MookChivalry: Relies heavily on this, goading the heroes into attacking him one by one since there
turns out to stone.

[[folder: Vehemence]]
[[quoteright:145:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/vehemence_grrlpower_6367.jpg]]
!!Vehemence/Kevin (last name unknown)

A large, MysteriousStranger who is associated with the villains who attack the heroes at the restaurant, eventually claiming to have organized the action, but who doesn't do much for them for most of the fight. Then he [[FalseFriend turns against them]] -- before challenging all the heroes still standing ''at once.'' While he obviously has super powers, he keeps their precise nature quiet to begine with; just to start with, though, he is able to pass unnoticed through a tornado of flying rocks, and he drops Opal and Vekter with little apparent difficulty after shrugging off some heavy attacks.
----
* AbstractEater: His main (and possibly only true) superpower; [[spoiler:Vehemence is "an innate user of vehemic energy ... sometimes called vistric energy." The layman's version: he gains power from violence. He makes his debut by sticking around an all out super brawl between a super hero team and a team-up of villains. Only when it's over does he enter the fray himself, now strong enough to go toe-to-toe with one of the most powerful super beings in the world and only making himself stronger for it.]]
* AffablyEvil:
** His ''exact'' motives are kept quiet for a while, but he's certainly not friendly to the heroes.
** However, after showing up for the big fight in a nice suit, [[PetTheDog he has a short, amiable conversation with Sydney]], indicates to her which of the other villains looks most worrying, and then privately hopes that she doesn't get herself killed. He becomes far less affable once he [[BloodKnight starts to fight]], but even then he manages a few jokes during the pauses between punches, and he goes to the trouble of [[MagicPants preserving his modesty]] to [[FullFrontalAssault avoid shocking his opponents too much.]]
** He has a dedication to etiquette that verges on BlueAndOrangeMorality. He'll beat your face in, but he (almost) never swears, and he generally tries to leave his opponents alive [[spoiler: if only so they can come back to commit more violence later]]. He even pointed out to Arc-SWAT that he probably caved in Vekter's ribs and that they should send someone to check on him before the fight really got going.
* TheAgeless: Vehemence's age is unclear; it's not even certain that he's a mortal. However, his knowledge of occult secrets and a casual reference to being present at "the [[UsefulNotes/CivilRightsMovement L.A. Race Riots]]" (which race-related riots in L.A. he means is unclear) suggest that he's certainly been around for some time.
* AmbiguouslyEvil: While he attacks Arc-SWAT with clear intent to take them down, and he manipulated dozens of people into a super-powered battle, he's not shown any desire to cause ''lasting'' harm [[spoiler: past killing Maxima, and then only because she's willing and able to kill him]]. He's expressed hope that Sydney survives the night, and prompted Arc-SWAT to check on a guy he just hit, as he may have broken some ribs. Furthermore, he shows no real animosity or malice towards our heroes, even complimenting their fighting ability, and obliging Sydney in some light banter.
* AmbiguouslyHuman: It's not certain whether or not he's human/mortal or not especially given the fact that [[spoiler:the only other users of vehemic energy that Dabbler knows of are a type of demon]], and the hints that he might be TheAgeless.
* ArcVillain: Of the press conference/first superbrawl arc.
* BadassInANiceSuit: Vehemence first [[http://grrlpowercomic.com/archives/1422 appears]] wearing a suit and a tolerably NiceHat.
* BaldOfEvil: All part of his shaven-headed thug look.
* BatmanGambit: He counted on ARC-SWAT to take a "punch first, ask questions later" approach to the supervillain ambush he'd orchestrated [[spoiler: to help fuel his powers]].
* BloodKnight:
** One of the explanations he initially offers for his own actions -- and the one that Maxima finds most plausible.
--->'''Vehemence:''' [[http://grrlpowercomic.com/archives/1490 Fine. I'm just pro-violence, and I'm here to beat the hell out of you.]]
** Actually, it's really because [[spoiler:he draws power from "vehemic energy", which is the psychic energy of violence itself. He engaged Arc-SWAT because superheroes produce otherwise impossible levels of localized violence, which in turn gives him extraordinary levels of power]]. Which is kind of a very practical reason for being a BloodKnight.
** It's also implied that [[spoiler: vehemic energy [[EvilFeelsGood feels good to him,]] which means that he literally gets high off of violence.]]
* ChekhovsGunman: First seen [[http://grrlpowercomic.com/archives/1189 in the first panel in a strip showing the potential reactions of villains to the press conference]], then spends the early stages of the superbrawl just hanging in the background. Given that subsequent panels in that strip included a huge demon (possibly archdemon) with an axe to grind against Dabbler, as well as Deus, this could mean that he's actually a DiskOneFinalBoss or StarterVillain if the other villains shown also end up being Chekhov's gunmen...
* CombatPragmatist: He grabs Anvil's hair and swings her around with it when he fights her. He also has [[spoiler:no objection to simply trying to ''kill'' Maxima after she manages to hurt him]].
* ConservationOfNinjutsu: Vehemence appears to embody the trope, which is invoked, lampshaded, discussed, and PlayedStraight by and with him. See the main page for more on this. Actually, it turns out that [[spoiler:he draws power from violence, so being present at a big fight which thins out both sides powers him up]], thereby justifying the trope in his case.
* CutenessOverload: Is held in a cell with '''Videogame/KirbysEpicYarn''' in order [[http://grrlpowercomic.com/archives/1881 to keep him relax.]] He also has a [[AndAllIGotWasThisLousyTShirt lousy T-shirt]], a Mario star, [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic a poster of Twilight]], and a lot of weed smoke.
* DeadpanSnarker: He has his moments, such as when Sydney claims Dabbler (in full succubus form) is from Jersey.
-->'''Vehemence:''' Oh, is ''that'' where they keep the Aetheon thrones? Pull the other one.\\
'''Sydney:''' Not ''New'' Jersey, obviously. ''Old'' Jersey.
* DistractedByTheSexy: Sydney's plan to stop him involves getting Dabbler to jump rope in front of him (causing her breasts to jiggle), [[spoiler: countering his [[ThePowerOfHate vehemic energy]] with Dabbler's [[ThePowerOfLove tantric energy]] ]], and causing him to start losing focus and strength.
* DoubleAgent: Implied then averted. His actions in standing back from the big fight and then betraying his own side seem to hint at the trope initially, but he eventually claims not to be working for anyone but himself, and he's certainly not there to help the heroes.
* EarlyBirdCameo: He is depicted several pages before his first "actual" appearance, [[http://grrlpowercomic.com/archives/1189 here.]]
* EvilFeelsGood: Implied to be a part of the reason that [[spoiler: Vehemence is so dedicated to accumulating vehemic energy.]]
* ExactWords: Vehemence is very careful in what he says. He almost always speaks in terms of his capabilities, implying the threat that he might actually ''use'' those capabilities. [[spoiler: This is because he doesn't really ''have'' any grand ambitions or political goals. He really does just love violence, thanks to his ability to feed on vehemic energy. In fact, he hates the kind of mayhem he was threatening, since too much violence ''now'' means he doesn't get ''any'' violence later.]]
* GagPenis: Judging by the reactions of the cast (including an "[[Creator/GeorgeTakei Oh myyy...]]"), Vehemence gains one [[http://grrlpowercomic.com/archives/1543 when he hulks out]].
* GeniusBruiser:
** His primary powers are basically SuperStrength and [[NighInvulnerable robustness]], and he looks the part of a hulking thuggish bruiser. However, he is also very shrewd and well-informed.
** He is able to manipulate both other villains and heroes into acting in ways that suit him.
** He recognizes Dabbler's supernatural nature and laughs off her cover story, implying exceptional knowledge of the occult.
** He later casts a kind of spell that [[spoiler:causes the defeated villains to wake up and makes them and the heroes to fight among themselves to get more vehemic power]].
* GenreSavvy:
** He not only seems to be on the same wavelength as Sydney, he ''says'' "[[http://grrlpowercomic.com/archives/1484 Dun. Dun. Dunnnnnn.]]" at a crucial moment, and refers to Sydney's genre savviness with amused respect.
** And then there's the moment when he [[http://grrlpowercomic.com/archives/1358 pokes at Dabbler's dropped sword with a stick]] in a very Sydney-like manner.
* GodzillaThreshold: He's usually careful not to kill the people he fights, [[spoiler:since doing so would starve him of his power source]], but after powering up as much as he can he goes in for the kill on Maxima, because he regards her as the only hero who stands a chance of stopping him.
* HealingFactor: Uses this to regenerate his eye, tooth [[spoiler: and arm. Plus whenever he does heal, he gets even stronger]].
* KnowWhenToFoldEm: [[spoiler:Surrenders when Sydney points out it's either that or Maxima frying his head]].
* LightningBruiser: One with [[http://grrlpowercomic.com/archives/1491 a shockingly fast recovery time, at that]].
* LogicalWeakness: [[spoiler:Besides the fact that he needs violence to fuel his powers, and thus isn't much of a threat if no-one is fighting within his range, it's possible to hit him hard enough that the benefits he gets from the violence are outweighed by the damage done.]]
* MagicPants: Vehemence averts and then invokes this trope in a literally magical form when he has absorbed a very large amount of "vehemic energy". He uses it to grow to twice his normal size -- [[http://grrlpowercomic.com/archives/1543 with all-too-realistic consequences for his clothes.]] However, he then flaunts just how much power he has acquired by using some of it to create himself a new pair of pants, complete with accompanying [[UnsoundEffect Ka-pants]].
* ManipulativeBastard: Orchestrated the whole superbrawl, roping in all of the supers he knew who could possibly be partial to it [[MoreThanMindControl (and some who normally wouldn't be, it seems...)]] and banked on [=ArcSWAT=] to react the way they did [[spoiler: to fuel up his powers from all the violence]].
* MoreThanMindControl: [[spoiler: His control over vehemic energy extends to instilling and exacerbating violent tendencies in others; when powered up, he used his vehemic aura to wake up almost every knocked out super and make them fight each other indiscriminately, and post-battle conversations with some of the attacking supers stongly suggest that he used his aura to ramp up their aggression to the point where they thought the brawl was a good idea, [[OOCIsSeriousBusiness which they likely never would have thought otherwise.]]]]
* MotiveRant: Subverted. At one point, he claims he'll start wars all over the world to fuel his powers, but...
-->'''Vehemence:''' Actually Colonel, I'm not planning on doing any of that. It's just the sort of thing a guy like me is supposed to say. The world could use a good kick in the ass don't get me wrong, but war is unruly. I enjoy a good scrap is all. Think I'll take in a sports riot next. Brazil perhaps.
* MysteriousStranger: His initial style, standing off to the side watching as the members of the villain team battle with the members of Arc-SWAT, and then having a polite conversation with Sydney. Also, Maxima refuses to believe his first explanation for his actions.
* MysteriousWatcher: Although the other villains are willing to regard him as one of their own, he just watches while they fight. Sydney is rightly concerned by this mystery.
* NewPowersAsThePlotDemands: Towards the climax of his fight against the team; justified in that [[spoiler: by that point he's absorbed so much vehemic energy that he can use it in almost any way he sees fit]].
* NighInvulnerable: Just for a start, Vekter hits him with a car which explodes on impact, and the only damage we see is his suit sleeve being slightly ripped. [[spoiler: He becomes even more resilient as the fight continues.]]
* PetTheDog: He seems to have a certain fondness for Sydney; she's the one he's referring to in his character pic above.
* PoliticallyIncorrectVillain: Vehemence says that he has gained more energy from his fight with Arc-SWAT than he got from the [[UsefulNotes/CivilRightsMovement L.A. Race Riots.]] That said, [[AmbiguouslyEvil he doesn't say whether he took part]].
* PowerGlows: The more [[spoiler: vehemic energy he absorbs,]] the stronger he gets and the more his tattoos glow.
* PowerTattoo: Seems to be the case, as his tattoos are blue-lavender at the beginning of a fight, then [[http://grrlpowercomic.com/archives/1529 start to glow green]], then glow orange after [[spoiler: Maxima blows his arm off.]]
* PragmaticVillainy: Twofold. First, he never attempts to kill anyone but Maxima, because [[spoiler: he knows that people can't be violent if they're dead]], and [[spoiler:he doesn't want to cut off his power supply]]. Second, he only attempts to kill Maxima because he believes that she's the only one who stands a chance of stopping him.
* SharpDressedMan: Wears a sharp, dark suit and a NiceHat, and his powers apparently serve to protect these from damage to some extent. However, [[SeriousBusiness he takes off first the hat and then his jacket when preparing to fight the heroes]].
* TheStoner: [[spoiler: Not by his own choice mind you. While imprisoned by ARCHON, [[http://grrlpowercomic.com/archives/1881 they keep him perpetually high as balls and entertained with video games]] to keep him under control.]]
* SuperpowerLottery: As Sydney lampshades, his powerset is no joke.
* SuperStrength: He manifests other powers in due course (and he's certainly quick and tough from the start), and he's quite a ''smart'' fighter in his way, but he's definitely very, very strong, and his physique makes him look the part.
* TalkingTheMonsterToDeath: Sort of. He's finally ''defeated'' by [[spoiler:every super in the fight dogpiling him and holding his head under water. But while he has to spend energy faster than he gains it to keep from drowning, it would still take a while to finally, officially defeat him. So Sydney points out that he can either give up gracefully, or get his head vaporized by Maxima, and he submits to Dabbler's sleep spell]].

[[folder:Marble Maiden]]
[[quoteright:291:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/marble_maiden_0.jpg]]
!!Marble Maiden

The only named super-powered vigilante, though Archon is closing in on her. The only reason she has been able to evade them for so long is because her ability to turn to stone keeps her from leaving any DNA evidence behind.
----
* AttentionWhore: Despite not leaving any DNA evidence at any of her encounters, she's constantly posting about them on social media. This is how Archon eventually starts tracking her.
* ElementalShapeshifter: She can turn into a super-strong and flexible green stone golem.
* ImpossiblyCoolClothes: Her costume is extremely form-fitting with no straps for her bra. Possible in real life, but extremely impractical for a fight. Sydney theorizes that she glues it to herself after she turns to stone.
