!!Halo [=/=] Sydney Scoville

->''"My hyperactivity gives me an initiative bonus!"''

The lead character of the comic, Sydney is a hyperactive, tightly-wound geek who part-owns and runs a comic-book shop. She's also the newest member of Arc-SWAT, and is a bit of an oddity, as she's just a normal human bonded to seven mysterious orbs which give her superpowers.
----
* ACupAngst: Especially when comparing herself with Maxima or some of the other supers she encounters. Peggy tells her that it's okay, because Peggy is built similarly, and "the A Team sticks together." Sydney is not amused.
* {{Adorkable}}: With her big round glasses, superhero shirts, and annoying-yet-oddly-charming personality.
* AlliterativeName: '''S'''ydney '''S'''coville.
* AncientArtifact: Halo has seven of them. They're floating orbs in the colors of the spectrum, and each one gives her a different superpower:
** The orange one is pretty well a WaveMotionGun. With the random upgrade she bought while fighting a golem, she now has access to [[MoreDakka rapid fire mode.]]
** The yellow one makes an illusion of her that she can see and hear through. It also grants her TrueSight, the ability to see through illusions or invisibility. She later finds a setting that grants AuraVision. [[spoiler:She unlocks a new ability that allows her to teleport to her illusion's location]].
** [[{{Flight}} The blue one lets her fly]].
** [[BarrierWarrior The indigo one lets her generate force fields]].
** [[MindOverMatter The violet one gives her a telekinetic energy-pseudopod]].
** [[ChekhovsGun She hasn't figured out what the red and green ones do]].
* {{Angrish}}: The things that Sydney says in an angry [[http://www.grrlpowercomic.com/archives/197 rant]] can cause a passing [[http://www.grrlpowercomic.com/archives/201 sailor]] to blush.
* {{Ascended Fan|boy}}girl: A comics nerd turned superhero.
* AttentionDeficitOohShiny: She has ADHD, she's on medication one step down from methamphetamine for it, and it still isn't enough to fully regulate the condition.
* AuraVision: A subpower of her yellow orb.
* AwesomeByAnalysis: When Sydney deliberately crosses her GenreSavvy with her ADHD ability to come at problems from angles nobody would usually expect by throwing the kitchen sink at them and seeing what might stick, awesome can, in fact, ensue. As Vehemence found to his cost.
* BadLiar: Sydney [[http://www.grrlpowercomic.com/archives/163 cannot tell a convincing lie]], occasionally leading to CassandraTruth-style problems. It just doesn't help that she really ''was'' trying to get away from a group of nuns...
* BarrierWarrior: When using the indigo orb. Not only can she change the size of the force field to cover large groups of people, it's strong enough to take some of Maxima's most powerful attacks without difficulty. It even gives her immunity to some non-physical attacks [[spoiler: like Vehemence's aggro aura.]] It also protects the ''ground'' at her feet, as evidenced when Maxima hit someone -- at the time anchoring himself to the ground -- [[SuperStrength hard enough]] to ''[[MegatonPunch lift the street]]''... and Sidney's shield kept the ground at the same level it was when she shielded herself, making a hole on the raised portion.
* BlindWithoutEm: Invoked but averted: [[http://www.grrlpowercomic.com/archives/1290 Sydney pretends she's helpless without her glasses to get a villain off his guard]]. She then boasts about averting the trope (thereby lampshading the aversion), pointing out that no one is so blind as to not see someone moving right near them just because you take their glasses off, at least not in law enforcement. (She points out that there ''are'' people that blind.)
* BoringButPractical: For all the amazing powers her orbs provide, her fallback option tends to be just using them to telekinetically hit people who get too close. It helps that this is the one function of the orbs that doesn't require her to hold them in her hands.
* BunnyEarsLawyer: Her wacky antics may make her a major nuisance, but her abilities and competence make her far too valuable to the team to justify dismissing her. Much of the nuisance factor may be a result of her beng a FishOutOfWater, and is something Maxima is trying to fix.
* CleavageWindow: Stealth subversion. The cleavage window shirt Sydney wears is a ComicBook/PowerGirl t-shirt with a fake cleavage design. The same design can be seen in the comic store window during the exterior shot, [[http://grrlpowercomic.com/archives/163 as shown here]].
* ClingyMacGuffin: Sydney and her power-spheres ''cannot'' be separated by more than a certain distance. Even Maxima, who can lift a truck with one hand, simply can't pull them apart - though it's an odd case, as she can't drag Syd around by yanking on them, either. This allows Sydney a little bit of gloating at Max (especially when she falls on her butt), but is perhaps her one weakness - if they're pinned in place, she's trapped.
* CloudCuckooLander: A card-carrying, tax-paying resident of Cloudcuckooland. She acts like the sun burns her, vampire-style (though it doesn't), keeps up a Creator/DavidAttenborough or Creator/JacquesCousteau-style commentary while scuba-diving, and has a doodle of herself marrying a shirtless Wolverine in her note book (which she calls 'the list')
* ClusterFBomb:
** While not containing solely F-words, [[http://www.grrlpowercomic.com/archives/197 Sydney's cursing]] ''did'' manage to make a [[VisualPun sailor blush]]... though that might be [[http://www.grrlpowercomic.com/archives/201 because of the nuns behind her]].
** In a FunnyBackgroundEvent, when Sydney is giving the interview, even ''the censors'' [[http://www.grrlpowercomic.com/archives/389 comment on it.]]
--->'''News crawler:''' Please make this girl stop cursing. I feel like I'm playing ''VideoGame/{{Diablo}}'' with the censor button.
* CombatTentacles: What she uses the violet orb for on occasion.
* ComboPlatterPowers:
** Sydney’s seven orbs each do very different things. One gives her flight, one gives her a very impressive force field, one makes a energy-tentacle ... thing, one gives her telepresence and truesight, one makes a powerful energy blast, and the other two no one has any idea about. She can only use two at a time, though, one for each hand.
** This gets taken even further as we learn more about the Orbs. Not only do several of them seem to come with secondary modes, [[spoiler:but they also come with a ''large'' skill tree]]. It's possible that at full power she could end up equaling Dabbler or even Max.
* CompanionCube: Sydney's tube, at least in her early scenes. She uses it to hold her power orbs (which otherwise deploy themselves in a ring around her, explaining her hero name), and treats it almost as if it were sentient. Most of her BlatantLies are attempts at covering up what's really inside it.
* CuriosityIsACrapshoot: As annoying and obnoxious as she is, it's a very bad idea to leave her unsupervised. She will wander off and get into an attic/storage compartment and start to play with things she doesn't understand in her boredom.
* CutenessOverload: Her reaction to [[http://grrlpowercomic.com/archives/2205 meeting a were-hare is quite telling.]]
* DarkSecret: Parodied. Sydney doesn't want the rest of Arc-SWAT to know that [[spoiler:she's a vegetarian]]. Sadly, one of the people she does tell is one of Harem's duplicates, and the other four spill to everyone else within a page.
* DistractedByTheSexy:
** When she's trying to think of a plan to stop [[spoiler:Vehemence]], she keeps thinking about ComicBook/{{Batman}}, including him dancing with a bat-themed codpiece and no shirt in front of Catwoman.
** Earlier, she finds out that succubus breasts are literally hypnotic, and [[spoiler:uses this to distract Vehemence by having Dabbler jump up and down]].
** Later, she totally misses her very shirtless teammate's instructions to use a wrist band GPS device.
* DroppedGlasses: Sydney drops her glasses while eating ultra-spicy ramen. [[http://www.grrlpowercomic.com/archives/697 just in time]] to catch a spiced noodle [[EyeScream to the eye.]] She also later drops them during her first real super-battle, but actually turns that to her advantage; see the note on BlindWithoutEm.
* EarWorm: Invoked in universe; Sydney seems to be prone to this problem [[{{Cloudcuckoolander}} because of her ADHD]]. During her AwesomeByAnalysis moment, she keeps thinking about Batman ... and, after her plan takes shape inside her mind, Batman pops up once more singing "I'm the Bat-man!" to the tune of Music/ScatmanJohn, and it gets stuck in her head.
* EmpoweredBadassNormal: Prior to using, or even getting, her orbs, she's had some kind of martial arts training, as one of her first on-screen actions is taking down a man at least a foot taller and one and a half times as heavy, with military training, super-powers, and a gun, in a matter of seconds, while she herself is unarmed, and her backstory has her being accosted by a mugger, and her giving him a beatdown so thorough, the official report can only say "oh the humanity." Her orbs make her deadlier by giving her more options, such that she can match Math in combat whose martial arts skills are to the level where he's indistinguishable from a super-powered individual.
* EyeScream: 3 million Scoville noodle, directly to the eye. [[http://www.grrlpowercomic.com/archives/697 Medic...]]
* FireBreathingDiner: Finding a place that serves food hot enough to induce this is one of Sydney's favorite things. [[http://www.grrlpowercomic.com/archives/697 She eventually succeeds.]]
* FlyingBrick: In effect... Her orbs can give her flight, invulnerability, and a strong energy tentacle -- but only any two of those at a time.
* GatlingGood: The PPO can fire a rapid stream of low-powered fireballs.
* {{Geek}}: And assertive about it. Not that a comics-shop-owning pop culture fan like her can exactly hide it. She might also label herself a {{Nerd}}, but she doesn't really fit the definition used on this site.
* GeekyTurnOn: She is attracted to Leon not only because he's tall but because he is a geek AND a nerd. She briefly considers marrying him and having him change his last name to Scoville.
* GenkiGirl: In all her ADHD glory. There are times when she seems to be intentionally channeling Tomo from ''Manga/AzumangaDaioh''.
* GenreSavvy: [[AllThereInTheManual According to her entry in the cast page]], one of Sydney's advantages is that [[RulesLawyer she can come up with more power stunts]] than the people whose powers they are. This is demonstrated in the opening pages, where she proves how her attack in a superhero tabletop game actually worked despite the villain's force-field.
* HeIsNotMyBoyfriend : Yeah, but you wish he [[http://www.grrlpowercomic.com/archives/149 was,]] Sydney.
* InnocentlyInsensitive: Due to having a hard time filtering anything she says, she tends to insult or otherwise offend people without meaning to do so. It comes to a head during the meeting with the various supernatural entities in the setting when she offends the resident FriendlyNeighborhoodVampire with a popular meme.
--> '''Sydney:''' In Russia, the hunger eats you.\\
'''Ivor:''' I AM NOT RUSSIAN!
* KarmaHoudini: Thanks to Harem's prank grabbing Maxima's attention, Sydney apparently gets away with snagging Max's [[NiceHat hat]] -- and getting away with pulling stuff on Max isn't always easy. She later loses it again, but suffers no punishment.
* {{Keet}}: As expected of someone with ADHD, she's ''very'' easily excitable.
* LethalChef: Describes her spaghetti sauce as "weapons grade". It apparently involves [[BlazingInfernoHellfireSauce peppers that are red, but are not red peppers]].
* LogicalWeakness:
** Sydney's shield that blocks anything also does not allow for air flow. After holding one around herself from most of the fight she starts to get lightheaded and is told to drop it for a few moments to get her air back. She does point out the FridgeLogic in that weakness though, like how changing the size of the shield doesn't seem to affect the pressure of the air inside it.
** She also has no SuperStrength orb, which means that she is exactly as physically strong as you would expect a nerdy young woman who doesn't seem very athletic to be, so she's unable to lift up a heavy gun at one point (though she probably could have with proper leverage, albeit with difficulty).
* MakeUpIsEvil: Downplayed, but Sydney's not wearing make-up makes her feel this way.
* MasochistsMeal: Sydney likes it ''hot''.
-->'''Sydney:''' Do you have a dab of pure cap I could garnish this with?[[note]]"Pure cap," here, referring to ''pure capsacin,'' the chemical that makes peppers spicy.[[/note]]
* MasterOfIllusion: Minor example; she can produce an illusory copy of herself she can see and hear through, courtesy of the yellow comm-ball orb.
* MeaningfulName: Sydney '''[[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scoville_scale Scoville]]''' loves spicy food, as {{lampshaded}} by [[http://grrlpowercomic.com/archives/194 Mrs. B. at the restaurant]].
* {{Meganekko}}: She wears glasses.
* MuggingTheMonster: A background check reveals that she was once arrested for assault. Maxima does not find that surprising. What surprises everyone in the board room is that she was found not-guilty due to acting in self-defense ''because somebody actually tried to mug her.'' The only description in the official police report is "Oh, the humanity!". Further, when her co-worker/business partner hears about the bank robbery, he's concerned about the fate of the bank robbers.
* MundaneUtility: Halo realizes she could totally cheat at Skeeball using the orbs. She can also use them to hit people with as they hurtle round her. In fact, this sometimes seems to be becoming her primary combat technique.
* TheNapoleon: Halo sometimes gets peeved about being the smallest super in the cast.
* {{Nerdgasm}}: She begins to hyperventilate in excitement at meeting a were-dire honey badger.
* NightmareFetishist: When Sydney finds out that vampires and werewolves are ''real'', rather than being shocked and horrifed, she's overjoyed and squeals with childish glee, even going so far as to hug a ''very big and imposing'' werewolf around the waist and commenting on how "fluffy" his fur is, and then proceeding to troll said werewolf with a camera like a photographer talking to a model.
* NonstandardCharacterDesign: Sydney is very often drawn in cartoony poses while the rest of the cast is drawn more realistically.
* NoSell: Her orbs are immune to any and all forms of scanning, from magical to technological. Several functions (most notably the skill tree) are only visible to organic eyes. Dabbler theorizes it's some sort of illusory or psychic light that is masking itself, but she isn't able to confirm it. Krona was able to see the "source code" of the orbs when the skill tree pops up, but Krona's magic is so unique that she's considered an entire faction of magic all by herself.
* OnlyTheKnowledgableMayPass: Her nerd-test with Leon.
* OOCIsSeriousBusiness: Peggy realized that she pushed Sydney too far when Sydney yelled out "Fuck BATMAN!"
* PervertedDrooling: When [[http://www.grrlpowercomic.com/archives/672 presented with a roomful of shirtless, perfectly-muscled superhero hunks]].
* PoliticallyIncorrectHero: {{Downplayed}} but present, mostly because she has almost no filter on what she says. She's currently being trained by Arianna to have a bit more of a self-censor, with... [[http://grrlpowercomic.com/archives/2119 limited success thus far]].
-->'''Arianna''': It would be a shame to refine you into a more considerate individual then have you insult every Irish person the first time you stub your toe on camera.\\
'''Sydney''': So... don't say stuff like "potato deficient famine jockeys"?
* PopCulturedBadass: She obviously has a detailed knowledge of internet memes, enjoys ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' enough to have it's opening theme for a ringtone, and when Maxima is testing the strength of her forcefield, Halo starts dancing while singing "Can't Touch This" as well as proclaiming that she is [[{{Film/Goldeneye}} "EENWEENCIBLE!"]]
* PowerIncontinence: Due presumably to her powers deriving from the orbs and not from herself, Sydney has difficulty judging their level. She can't assess how fast she is flying, for instance, or use her energy blasts below maximum output. This has led to both a few accidents and some AchievementsInIgnorance.
* PowerPerversionPotential: Invoked; when asked to name the orb that produces an [[CombatTentacles energy tentacle]], Sydney initially suggests "[[{{Hentai}} hentorb,]]" "molestorb" and "[[NamesToRunAwayFromVeryFast The Violator.]]" Eventually, she's forced to pick the more PR-friendly "lighthook."
* ProudToBeAGeek: Sydney is not only very open in her geekery, she explicitly considers geekiness something to be proud of.
* PuppyDogEyes: Sydney's [[http://grrlpowercomic.com/archives/1715 force Maxima to make a Will Save]].
* RequiredSecondaryPowers:
** While her shield has the LogicalWeakness of being ''so'' strong that air can't pass through it, she lampshades how it apparently can compensate and eliminate the change in air pressure that changing its size would cause.
** The flight orb cancels out vertigo while she's holding it, which is good because normally she's slightly acrophobic.
** Although ''she'' is nowhere near strong enough to lift a small car, the Lighthook can without putting any strain on Sydney. It is eventually revealed that the lighthook can lift somewhere around 16 tons before Sydney starts to feel the strain.
* RulesLawyer: Sydney, in her superhero RPG game. She knows all the tropes concerning superpowers and how to bend them to her will. This is likely to translate into GenreSavvy later on.
* SarcasticConfession: See the link under BadLiar above. The [[spoiler:last one]] is the truth.
* SirSwearsalot: When she gets excited (i.e. a lot of the time), Sydney is prone to swearing in a stream-of-consciousness fashion.
-->'''Math''': [[http://grrlpowercomic.com/archives/838 She's definitely got a blackbelt in cursing]]. 5th... no, 7th dan.
* SkillScoresAndPerks: The Orbs apparently come with a [[http://www.grrlpowercomic.com/archives/1166 skill tree]].
-->'''Sydney:''' ''DING'' mutha fuckas!
* SpannerInTheWorks: If a villain tries to do anything where she happens to be, she will somehow be in the right place, at the right time to thwart it.
* SuperPowerLottery: See AncientArtifact above.
* SuperSpeed: Can fly at up to Mach 4, and has yet to fully power up the Flight Orb.
* TheyWouldCutYouUp:
** [[http://www.grrlpowercomic.com/archives/317 Her (completely unfounded) fear if her powers are discovered.]]
** [[http://www.grrlpowercomic.com/archives/457 Also here with an Invader Zim reference.]]
* TeleportersAndTransporters: [[spoiler:Gains the ability to teleport to the place her illusion version is]].
* TongueTrauma: Narrowly averted when Sydney pulled a robber by the tongue and slammed him to the ground. [[spoiler: "averted" because the robber was another super-powered being who was in disguise. His power just happened to also be extreme stretchiness.]]
* TooKinkyToTorture: Nonsexual example -- she speaks dismissively to the waitress at a spicy-food-oriented restaurant, prompting them to dose her food with ''"[[BlazingInfernoHellfireSauce The Unmaker]]."'' To the astonishment of all involved, she ''loves'' it, and the only problem she has is when a noodle flick into her eye. In fact, getting the hottest food she could [[BatmanGambit appears to be why Sydney dissed the waitress in the first place]].
* UnusualEyebrows: Mild example: her shaggy lady brows are an unique trait for her.
* UselessUsefulSpell: Her truesight is the strongest anyone has ever seen, able to pierce a Succubus glamor with ease. Unfortunately, it can't pierce more mundane disguises, and illusionists are apparently exceptionally rare on Earth.
-->'''Deus:''' I'm sure in her line of work she'll eventually meet most of them.
* WaveMotionGun: The default mode of the PPO.
* WeakButSkilled: The first thing Maxima saw that actually gathered her interest during the "bank robbery" is Sydney single-handed taking down a guy OneHeadTaller, with super-powers, military training, and a gun, after he clocked her, in a matter of seconds completely unarmed, and making sure he ''stayed down.'' This is '''before''' she pulls out her orbs. That very night, during the super-brawl, she was able to field strategies and tactics, on the fly, that greatly surpassed Maxima, a colonel in the armed forces with actual combat experience. The next day, when she's worried about being given a physically humiliating punishment like "a zillion pushups" she admits that she can ''maybe'' do about 5 "girlie" pushups.
* WeaksauceWeakness:
** For Sydney, it's [[http://www.grrlpowercomic.com/archives/589 mittens]]. At least, that's the only aspect of the problem she's recognized; if something cut off or removed her hand, or otherwise rendered her unable to hold the orbs, she would also be screwed. (Though it has been noted that mittens, or being [[IncrediblyLamePun disarmed]], would not render her completely helpless, as she would still be able to use her orbs as bludgeoning tools, since they respond to her mental commands -- a trick she's used more than once.) She also gets a good laugh from the rest of the team when she enthusiastically informs them that she's not bulletproof -- though there may be a touch of FridgeHorror there too, when one considers that she may have actually ''tested'' the red and green orbs for invincibility by having ''guns shot at her.''
** She has also learned that [[http://grrlpowercomic.com/archives/2417 having her hands held shut]] is a weakness - she ''has'' to hold her orbs to use her powers - just touching her fingertips isn't enough.
** She literally ''cannot'' [[ClingyMacGuffin be separated from her orbs by more than ten yards or so]], which means that if the orbs are somehow tethered down or placed in a sealed container that she can't carry with her, she is effectively trapped where they are. This also works in reverse - if she is stuck in one location, the orbs cannot be moved more than ten yards or so away from her.
* WoundedGazelleGambit: Masterfully [[CrowningMomentOfFunny (and hilariously)]] pulled off by Sydney on [[http://www.grrlpowercomic.com/archives/1290 this page.]]

!!ARCHON supers

[[folder:ARCHON]]

A team of government-sponsored superheroes who recruit Sydney. Tropes applying to the whole team:
----
* CapeBusters: Although the Archon field teams are supers themselves, part of their mandate is to address the antics of superpowered vigilantes -- so the government has them performing this function. Certainly, the basically non-powered Archon leadership are in the business of ''controlling'' supers.
* CivvieSpandex: Most of the team's costumes are along the lines of military jumpsuits.
* CodeName: Each fieldable member has one.
* HeroicBuild: With one aversion, every member of the team is a perfect physical specimen.
* MildlyMilitary: Some aspects of the team are remarkably informal -- such as military discipline administered via atomic wedgie. Possibly [[JustifiedTrope justified]] since standard military disciplinary techniques wouldn't work very well on many of the supers. Two of their stronger members are 'civilian specialists,' even.
* MilitarySuperhero: Archon is provisionally organized under the [=DoD=].
* SecretIdentity: Averted. As members of an official peace-keeping organization, all of the members of Archon have public identities.
* SpandexLatexOrLeather: Systematically averted, from what we can tell. The team's outfits seem to be fairly standard, sensible military-type uniforms. Except [[HornyDevils Dabbler's,]] of course, but she's pretty bad with the whole "military discipline" thing in general.
* SuperheroesStaySingle: Averted. At least two of the team's members are explicitly noted to be dating.
* SuperheroSpeciation: Subverted. While each hero has a different thematic and different main powers, several powers overlap -- there are several flyers, at least two characters with SuperToughness, and a couple with SuperStrength.
* ThemeNaming: Archon has five branches identified so far, all of which have their names start with Arc. Arc-Swat for super-combat, Arc-Light for super-investigations, Arc-Dark for some as-of-yet unexplained purpose (likely superpowered espionage and similar intrigue), Arc-Aegis for security, defense, and containment, and Arc-Sparq, which seems to deal with equipment.

[[folder:Maxima]]
[[quoteright:144:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/colonel_max_1550.jpg]]
!!Maxima [=/=] Maximillia Leander

->''"I miss the Air Force already."''

The commanding officer of the ARCSWAT squad the comic follows. Powerful, beautiful, and a vehement feminist, she serves as something of a straight man to Halo and some of the squad's other, wackier personalities -- much to Maxima's regret.
----
* TheAce: Played with. She is, without question, the strongest of all the ARCHON supers. She's also aware of this and how this could overshadow the rest of the team, so she takes steps to allow them time to shine without stepping in.
* AchillesHeel: Sort of. Her ability to "max out" her stats gives her an incredible amount of versatility, but it does mean she has to sacrifice other stats for the one she is increasing. The easiest way to render her helpless is to hit her with so much power that she is forced to dump everything into armor, rendering her NighInvulnerable but barely superhuman in every other way. Of course, that's not something that just anyone can do, but this weakness is why her ability to shift her stats around is top-secret. Even her teammates don't know about it (except Dabbler, who figured it out on her own).
* AlienBlood: [[http://grrlpowercomic.com/archives/1508 Her blood is blue.]] The author notes that this means that [[http://grrlpowercomic.com/archives/601 her blushes shouldn't be red]], but he had use it anyway because otherwise readers wouldn't realize she was blushing at all.
* BareYourMidriff: Maxima has been shown wearing a belly shirt once or twice. In addition, in one battle the lower part of her shirt and jacket get burned off, creating this effect.
* BerserkButton: Misogyny in any form, ranging from crass pickup lines to a prankster coworker shouting that all women should wear burkas.
* BloodKnight: Maxima enjoys beating up super-powered criminals a little ''too'' much, [[GrinOfAudacity smiling]] often at the thought of [[SmugSmiler showing punks just how powerful she really is]], [[ScareEmStraight while threatening those who would think of breaking the law]], or [[SlasherSmile while delivering said beat-down]]. She is also a brutal CombatPragmatist, although she apparently cannot resist [[SmugSuper grandstanding every now and then]].
* BodyHorror: When her gold skin came in her old normal skin started to come off like a bad sunburn. By the time she's taken to a doctor large patchs of her human skin, including over half her face has been peeled off.
* BoxingLessonsForSuperman: Along with strength, speed, and invulnerability, Maxima has demonstrated competence in a brutally efficient hand-to-hand fighting style. WordOfGod is that she believes in doing things as effectively as possible, and in building the most intimidating possible reputation. It's also a bit of a TakeThat to comics characters -- including Superman, in fact -- who seem to the author to [[UnskilledButStrong rely on raw strength without ever learning how to apply it efficiently]].
* BulletCatch: Maxima's [[http://www.grrlpowercomic.com/archives/253 first demonstrated superpower]] (if you don't count a [[http://www.grrlpowercomic.com/archives/251 pretty hard face]]).
* ChromeChampion: Maxima looks like she's made of gold, but in reality it's a much, much stronger classified material. Though they haven't been able to identify what that material ''is'', so it being classified is kinda a moot point.
* ClosetGeek: Maxima understands more of Sydney's references than she cares to admit.
* ClothingDamage: Averted, her protective shield is a bit above her skin and protects her clothing. To date only two attacks we've seen have both breached this shield and damaged her outfit.
* ColonelBadass: Very, very badass.
* CombatPragmatist:
** Believes in finishing the fight as fast as possible and gaining every advantage, although, being on the side of good, she takes measure of her opponents first to make sure they will survive [[SuperPowerLottery her attack]]. There comes a point where she might consider [[GodzillaThreshold revoking said courtesy]], however.
** This shines through during her fight with Vehemence, [[http://grrlpowercomic.com/archives/1519 where he narrowly escapes]] being made a [[GroinAttack permanent soprano]].
* TheComicallySerious:
** Part of what makes her NotSoAboveItAll (generally caused by Sydney) moments so funny.
--->'''Harem''': [[http://grrlpowercomic.com/archives/370 Have you ever seen someone wind up the Colonel like that?]]\\
'''Arianna''': I am so happy right now.
** Apparently Omar, an Arc-SPARQ engineer, is quite fond of yanking Maxima's chain by hammering on her BerserkButton.
--->'''Omar''': One of these days you'll stop falling for that, Max, until then, the anger album continues to grow.
* ComplainingAboutRescuesTheyDontLike: Played with when she feels [[http://grrlpowercomic.com/archives/1579 conflicted]] about [[spoiler: Dabbler and Sydney using the succubus's hypnotic body to distract Vehemence from killing her.]]
* CovertPervert:
** She enjoys [[http://grrlpowercomic.com/archives/1597 the beefcake as much as other ARC-SWAT gals]].
--->'''Sydney''': We only have a problem if [Hiro]'s found a new shirt to put on.\\
'''Maxima''': ''[[[ActuallyPrettyFunny Snort]]]'' Shh! Sydney, that's inappropriate. [--I'm not disagreeing, mind you.--]
** Later, Maxima has a {{beat}} before replying to the photographer upon learning that [[http://grrlpowercomic.com/archives/1780 her "tasteful nudes" offer was made to Hiro as well]].
* DCupDistress: See SoBeautifulItsACurse. Maxima is specifically annoyed with her bust because it [[http://www.grrlpowercomic.com/archives/320 interferes with drawing and holstering her gun.]]
* FlashStep: Maxima is [[http://www.grrlpowercomic.com/archives/253 fast enough to pull these off.]] [[http://www.grrlpowercomic.com/archives/389 Even against a teleporter.]]
* FlyingBrick: She can fly under her own power and reach supersonic speeds faster than Sydney can say ''[[http://www.grrlpowercomic.com/archives/388 "[bleep] FERRET BALLS!"]]''
* GoodIsNotNice: Maxima makes this ''very'' clear about herself during the press conference. She sees managing the "quavering masses" and making them happy as Ariana's job, hers is simply to keep them safe.
* GoodIsNotSoft: A point Maxima handily makes about Archon at the same time as proving the above trope about herself.
* HandBlast: [[http://www.grrlpowercomic.com/archives/720 So... Apparently, she can do that.]]
* HandCannon: Maxima has superhuman strength and durability. [[http://www.grrlpowercomic.com/archives/316 Her sidearm]] [[http://davebarrack.deviantart.com/gallery/#/d479p0v leverages this.]]
* MeaningfulName: [[WordOfGod According to the writer]], Maxima was so-named due to an ability to redistribute her power into her abilities in order to "max out" one of her abilities if necessary. Though that could just be considered a well-chosen superheroic codename.
* NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast: Suzie Wen happily called her "the goddess of ash."
-->'''Maxima:''' She gets an exclusive interview.
* NoodleIncident: Apparently, she [[http://www.grrlpowercomic.com/archives/675 accidentally destroyed a mosque once.]]
* NotSoAboveItAll:
** Maxima acts like the No-nonsense Military Commander, and for the most part she is, but every now and then we are treated to a glimpse of her less-than-professional side. Such as when she administered [[http://grrlpowercomic.com/archives/386 "military discipline"]] [[http://grrlpowercomic.com/archives/389 via Super-Strength Atomic]] {{Wedgie}}.
** Also, despite her strongly feminist leanings, [[http://grrlpowercomic.com/archives/323 she's not above making a lewd joke]] involving PowerPerversionPotential.
** Sydney's enjoyment of being able to fly [[http://grrlpowercomic.com/archives/1857 prompts Maxima to join in the fun]].
* NotSoStoic: Very few people can get under Maxima's skin, but groping her ass? [[http://grrlpowercomic.com/archives/620 That gets a response.]]
%%* OnlySaneWoman: Maxima often winds up in this role, especially where Sydney is concerned. When Sydney accidentally uppercuts herself into the ceiling, Maxima has [[WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}} Kif]] [[http://www.grrlpowercomic.com/archives/704 tags]] around her groan.
* PopCulturedBadass: Maxima has strong knowledge of pop culture, though she hides it most of the time. In order to get Halo to understand the likely consequences of irresponsible use of superpowers, she uses [[ILetGwenStacyDie the death of Gwen Stacy]] as a metaphor.
* ScaryShinyGlasses: Maxima only evokes this trope occasionally, but then -- [[http://www.grrlpowercomic.com/archives/1142 yikes.]]. Contrast Sydney's glasses, whose lenses are more or less invisible.
* SlasherSmile: Holy ''shit'', [[http://grrlpowercomic.com/archives/1525 Maxima]]!
* SlipknotPonytail:
** Maxima's bun at the press conference. Analyzed by the author, who admitted that he conferred with his wife to find out how unlikely that would be, especially with Maxima's slippery hair and the bun looking perfect until then (which he agreed would require tons of bobby pins). His idea is that Dabbler [[AWizardDidIt gave her a magic scrunchy.]]
** Played in reverse after the battle at the restaurant winds down; she used a [[SuperStrength piece of rebar]] to improvise a hair tie for a ponytail.
* SoBeautifulItsACurse: Maxima is very, very sensitive about her looks -- she feels like people treat her like a golden blow-up doll at times. This feeds into her fervent feminism.
* SuperEmpowering: Gained her powers when a geode she was opening dumped some liquid onto her (and she also swallowed some of it), though the change wasn't instant.
* SuperPowerLottery: Maxima is just plain more powerful than almost anyone. Deus theorizes that this is because she already had latent high-level superpowers when the geode gave her more powers on top of that.
* SuperSpeed: To go with the flying brick package. While her top speed is not currently known, she is apparently faster than Syndey, who tops out at Mach 4.
* SuperToughness: Possibly to the degree of NighInvulnerability -- we know that she can catch bullets.
* UnresolvedSexualTension: Sydney gets this vibe from them when she sees Deus and Maxima meet, even asking about them dating.
* WorldsStrongestWoman: Officially, only two people can come close to Maxima's power, and one of them is already dead. The other's Dabbler, and only because of the wide range of power she can bring to bear. [[spoiler: Vehemence proves to be a third with enough charging.]]

[[quoteright:143:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/dabbler_7987.jpg]]
!!Dabbler [=/=] Xuriel Shahara Tantalis

->''"Minimum security... like my pants!"''

Part demon, part alien, cybernetic, psychic, magical, trained in martial arts, and mutant besides, this beguiling creature seems to exist to make off-color jokes and be a thorn in Maxima's side.
----
* AnythingThatMoves: And possibly even some things that ''don't'' move.
-->'''Dabbler:''' I find [[LesYay complex women arousing.]]\\
'''Maxima:''' You find ''stairs'' arousing.
* AnArmAndALeg: Dabbler has a prosthetic arm; she lost the original because, as she states, she isn't quite as good of a fencer as she'd like to believe.
* AttentionDeficitOohShiny: Tends to get too distracted to get good enough at one thing to really excel at it, which she compensates for by using a but-load of skills.
* BadassBoast: When she first draws her sword.
-->'''Dabbler:''' Meet Soul Reaver. I'll try not to sheathe it in your heart.
* BrilliantButLazy: [[http://grrlpowercomic.com/archives/1365 She gets bored when making ammo for her gadgets]], so she usually only has 2-3 shots for anything.
* CharmPerson: One of her tricks.
* CuteMonsterGirl: In her true form she is purple, has hooves, four arms and is still insanely hot.
* {{Cyborg}}: She has a cybernetic arm with a teleporter in it, as well as a cybernetic eye (the left, blue one).
* DarkSkinnedBlonde: In the human glamour we see her using.
* DistractedByTheSexy:
** [[InvokedTrope She can cause it]] on ''[[EvenTheGirlsWantHer everyone]]'', and doesn't even have to put effort into it; it turns out that her whole body is ''literally'' [[http://grrlpowercomic.com/archives/1231 hypnotic]], and she is so hot that no-one ever notices the effect.
** [[spoiler:Sydney later uses this to distract Vehemence from his efforts to kill Maxima]].
* DoesNotLikeShoes: Her true form has hooves and thus does not need them. Even glamored into a human-looking image, she takes them off when she gets a chance.
* EvenTheGirlsWantHer: Due to being a succubus and master illusionist. When her powers are active, all the women in the room are prone to start thinking to themselves "Not a lesbian. Not a lesbian. Not a lesbian..." ([[BiTheWay except Harem]]).
* EveryoneCallsHimBarkeep: Her real name is listed on the cast page, but she just uses Dabbler.
* EyeScream: Similar to how she lost a hand in a duel, she also lost an eye in a different duel. She has a functional prosthetic there, too, and finds no problem taking it out to demonstrate to others.
* ForbiddenFruit: Part of why she's a bit fixated on Maxima - she's one of the few people that's shown zero interest in her.
* FunctionalMagic: She's a sorceress as well as a demon, mutant, alien, et al.
* GadgeteerGenius: As stated by TheRant, she's a better gadgeteer than she is a swordfighter.
* GenkiGirl: While not in Sydney's league, Dabbler is shown to have her Genki moments. She fights Sydney like they're siblings.
* GreenSkinnedSpaceBabe: Well, purple-skinned teal-striped alien-demon-mutant babe. She can use an illusion to appear as one of the original sort. Or, more specifically, [[spoiler:as the general's StarTrek fetish]].
* {{Hammerspace}}: [[http://www.grrlpowercomic.com/archives/1062 Apparently, Dabbler has access]] to [[http://www.grrlpowercomic.com/archives/1346 at least two different versions]] (one via ultra-tech cybernetics, one through magic). Sydney namedrops the trope before rushing in with a cry of "TEACH ME!"
* HeinzHybrid: Part succubus, part doppelgänger, and part something else assumed to be alien.
* HornyDevils: As well as a couple of other things.
* IAmNotLeftHanded: Initially did not use her sword's true power (including its ability to become two separate weapons) against Heavenly Sword because she wanted to win a straight up swordfight. After being forced to admit Heavenly's better than her, she [[CurbStompBattle kicks it up a notch.]]
* IHaveBoobsYouMustObey[=/=]TheHypnotoad: Having distracting boobs is an ''actual superpower'' for Dabbler whose breasts are literally hypnotic.
* JackOfAllTrades: [[MeaningfulName As her nickname implies]]... [[TheRedMage Dabbler]] outright says that she doesn't excel by doing just one thing, and she has demonstrated powerful and versatile magic, highly advanced technology, artifacts of great power, and great speed and strength. There are things she isn't ''that'' good at (as evidenced during her fight against [[SwordBeam Heavenly Sword]]), but that is precisely why she has such a diversity of skillsets and tools.
* JerkassHasAPoint: When she [[http://grrlpowercomic.com/archives/1238 points out]] a new way to interpret a saying that bothered Maxima.
* LockedOutOfTheLoop: The general public and lower-ranked Archon agents are not allowed to know that she is an alien succubus. Sydney was supposed to be in this group, but her truesight led to her figuring out on her own.
* LoveableSexManiac: Comes with the territory of being a succubus. WordOfGod states the author finds it slightly annoying that so many succubus characters don't really act like sex demons, and so pulls as few punches as he can for an SFW comic when it comes to Dabbler's ...healthy sexuality.
* MasterOfIllusion: As a succubus, she can don the appearance of anyone's fetish.
* MismatchedEyes: One blue and one green. Apparently one of them is cybernetic, but she doesn't say which to begin with. [[spoiler:It's the blue one.]]
* MissFanservice: Again, comes with the territory of being a [[HornyDevils succubus]], and she pretty much revels in it.
* MultiArmedAndDangerous: Her nonhuman form has four arms, although the more human illusion she projects around herself only has two. The other, invisible pair still function, though.
* MundaneUtility: She claims that the reason she stays in "battle form" at Archon HQ is because having an extra pair of arms is just too useful. The truth, of course, is that it is her real form.
* NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast: Okay, "Dabbler" is quite mild as superbeing code-names go. However, her ''sword'' is called "Soul Reaver".
* NinjaPirateZombieRobot: [[MeaningfulName Dabbler]] is a part alien part demon cyborg martial artist GadgeteerGenius sorceress.
* PsychicPowers: She possesses several, including a succubus-specific psychic sense for lust, dubbed the "pornosense" by Halo.
* ShapeShifting:
** Via glamor-based illusions -- according to her cast page she lacks a doppelganger's true shapeshifting ability.
** During the scene where she's introduced, while she's in human guise, a pair of invisible hands grope Maxima in one panel. They're probably Dabbler's secondary hands.
* StupidSexyFlanders: Dabbler shows her that she loves [[http://www.grrlpowercomic.com/comics/2012-07-23-GP0100.jpg seducing and confusing the new recruits.]]
* SuperSenses: Her hearing is acute enough to tell that there's someone standing cloaked in a corner by noticing that the sound is absorbed there.
* SuspiciouslySpecificDenial: At the press conference, she notes that she has powers that "look like magic to the untrained eye," a battle form that "looks suspiciously like a four-armed succubus," and that she's from "[[HeinzHybrid all sorts of places]], some [[FireAndBrimstoneHell that you can't even imagine]]."
* {{Troll}}:
** Has a "Make Maxima Say..." Bingo Card, with a betting pool currently up to $250. This is revealed right after she says her sword is "mammary-trapped," [[spoiler: thus getting Maxima to say "booby-trapped" and letting her mark down the "booby" space on her card.]]
** And [[EstablishingCharacterMoment in her first appearance alongside Maxima]], [[http://grrlpowercomic.com/archives/607 she gropes her butt]]. Maxima [[MegatonPunch responds about as well as you can imagine]].
* UnskilledButStrong: While not exactly ''poor'' in any of her main fields, her tendency towards - as her name suggests - dabbling in everything means that she's not as good as she could be. She's lost a hand and an eye (on separate occasions) due to overestimating her own swordsmanship. Page #217 notes that "Heavenly Sword knows Fencing and Kendo. Dabbler knows Hack and Slash."

[[folder:Harem]]
[[quoteright:144:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/harem_3309.jpg]]
!!Harem [=/=] Daphne [=DeShantis=]

->''"You may be the most powerful super in the world, but if you want to crank the pranks, you're on!"''

A teleporting duplicator, Harem's original body doesn't disappear when she teleports, allowing her to have up to five bodies coexisting at one time. Bisexual and something of a tease, she gets on several of the others' nerves.
----
* AchillesHeel:
** Sydney's shield, which is the ''only'' thing she's ever encountered that blocks her teleportation.
** Maxima exploits one using super-speed that Harem didn't really know her networked self had: multiplied impact dominoes. Impact one Harem very hard or a few of Harem with even mild shocks or bumps within a short time frame, and it stacks up on all of them in a cascade effect. Ghost pains can affect the ones that were uninjured for a while, even.
* AlliterativeName: Appropriate to the superhero thing.
* AndThatWouldBeWrong: She probably has [[http://grrlpowercomic.com/archives/1688 the most flexible morals on the team]].
-->'''Harem''': I'd make a great thief [[PragmaticVillainy if I could carry more]].\\
'''Sydney''': Also if your ironclad morals didn't stop you.\\
'''Harem''': That too. Obviously.
* BiTheWay: Flirts with the guys on the team, and is the only female in the room ''not'' thinking "[[StupidSexyFlanders not a lesbian]]" when Dabbler turns up the lust aura.
* CannotKeepASecret: If you tell one of her bodies something or one of her bodies sees something (such as Dabbler's Beholder spell, Sydney's accidental joke about Math's name, or Sydney being [[spoiler: a vegetarian]]), the other four will often ''react to'' that something even if the one watching/listening is keeping it together.
* CordonBleughChef: Unintentionally. Anything any of her bodies eat is tasted by all of them, so if more than one eats at the same time, they can experience some odd flavor combinations. As a rule, they eat separately to avoid this.
* DifferentlyDressedDuplicates: Although all her five copies share one mind, over the years, they've started to differentiate their outfits and even their personalities, despite technically still being one person with one mind.
* FlashStep: Comes with the teleporting territory.
* HiveMind:
** Due to her MesACrowd powers. Hilariously demonstrated [[http://www.grrlpowercomic.com/archives/389 here]] when Maxima gives one Harem a ''painful'' atomic wedgie. All five of her clones react.
** Given a painful callback when a telekinetic seriously injures one's hand and another is seen having to force herself to realize it's not ''her'' body that's been injured.
* TheHyena: Lampshaded by the author, who calls Harem a "gigglepuss".
* InertiaIsACruelMistress: She maintains momentum when she teleports, but relative to her own bodies, and she's learned ways to use this as an attack. If she's falling to the ground she can teleport upside down to fall back up, until the momentum is gone. Or, she can teleport into the air, drop for a bit, and then teleport sideways into an opponent to give them a hell of a dropkick.
* LogicalWeakness: She is unable to take passengers (save for Varia when they've touched), meaning that she cannot help a teammate escape. Also, she gets weaker with every copy of her that exists at a time, and has a strict upper limit to the mass she can normally take with her, which includes her bodies.
* MesACrowd: When Harem teleports, she can leave behind a functional copy of herself. She can create up to five at once, each with different clothing and hair style.
* TheMole: [[spoiler:She's using her powers to play double agent on Archon with Machina Industries because she feels Archon are too full of themselves.]] And because she thinks it's fun. It has been hinted that she may be a [[ReverseMole Triple Agent]], also because it's fun.
* MundaneUtility: She sometimes sends one copy to study something while the others are taking care of other things; she has a lot more skills at her disposal than it first seems.
* NoSell: Is unable to port through Sydney's shield.
* OnlyKnownByTheirNickname: She's called "Harem" so often that Sydney is initially confused when she refers to herself as Daphne.
* OnlySixFaces: Played with. On the one hand, she goes to a great deal of effort to make sure that her bodies look and even act different, despite being identical clones. On the other hand, the appearances she chose are clearly based on other team members, so it can be easy to mix them up if you're not careful.
* PopCulturalOsmosisFailure: She may not be as pop-culture-minded as Maxima; when Sydney does a WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes-style trick [[note]]Dropping her co-hero named [[IncrediblyLamePun Anvil]] on the villain's head[[/note]] in battle and follows it up by doing the Road Runner sound, she comments "I don't understand what you're doing." However, WordOfGod is that she does ''recognize'' the reference; she just doesn't get why Sydney is doing it.
* PowerPerversionPotential: She has [[HiveMind five bodies with one mind]], and calls herself Harem.
* SelfDuplication: When she teleports, she can leave behind a functional copy of herself. She can create up to five at once, each with different clothing and hair style. Interestingly, the more of herself she's got in existence at once, the weaker each one is. Despite this, she prefers to have all five copies at once, as having only one set of eyes and ears makes her feel disoriented and deprived of those missing senses.
* SuperStrength: Capable of this, though she dislikes using it. Her strength is spread across all of her bodies with her max of five equaling out to a physically fit teenager. However, for every body she loses, the remaining ones gain twice as much strength. With just one body she's apparently as strong as ''Anvil''.
* TeleportersAndTransporters:
** See self-duplication above. Her main function so far seems to be fetching the team's arsenal, since most of it is not stuff you can tote around normally.
** Some specifics are given in #207. The overall weight of ''all'' the copies and their clothes is added to what they're carrying for a sort of overall teleporting weight limit (total weight of clones+whatever clones wear and carry cannot exceed X, by Harem's explanation). When they start having to bring in heavy weaponry one considers taking off her boots to try and stay under the limit before deciding she'll just have to "unteleport" for a bit to reduce the load safely.
* WiseBeyondTheirYears: She's actually ''nineteen'', but acts with knowledge on par with Maxima and Arianna (though not necessarily maturity). This is because of her five bodies allow her to basically experience five times as much as normal people. For example, the cast page notes that she usually has one body sleeping and one body studying while the other three do more interesting things.

[[folder:Anvil]]
[[quoteright:144:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/anvil_1917.jpg]]
!!Anvil [=/=] Kenya Cassidy

->''"Watch out, the big guns are here."''

A super-strong, energy-absorbing powerhouse. Anvil is good friends with Maxima and is the only one of the three African-American members of the team we've been introduced to thus far.
----
* BoobsOfSteel: Possibly bigger than Maxima's, and she's no pushover.
-->'''Sydney''': At least you, uh... how do I put this? You don't have to worry about anyone mistaking you for a man.\\
'''Anvil''': [[SpeechBubbleCensoring There is that]].
* DarkSkinnedRedhead: Apparently that's her natural hair color.
* EnergyAbsorption:
** Her primary power -- she can absorb kinetic energy and use it to supplement her own punches. Finally [[http://www.grrlpowercomic.com/archives/1271 demonstrated in #202,]] where a superstrong villain punches her and she absorbs his blows' power, and then sends him flying with a ''nose boop''.
** And an even stronger one [[http://grrlpowercomic.com/archives/1502 here]] - she even warns the others to back the hell off due to just ''how'' strong Vehemence is.
* FeedItWithFire: She's an energy absorber.
* FingerPokeOfDoom: Or rather, [[http://www.grrlpowercomic.com/archives/1271 Nose Boop]] Of Doom.
--> Anvil's other fearsome martial arts techniques: Eskimo Kiss, Cheek Punch, Hair Ruffle.
* {{Gainaxing}}: She noticeably lacks a bounce during [[http://grrlpowercomic.com/archives/2006 morning workout,]] leading to a comment chain questioning whether she can [[MundaneUtility use her kinetic-absorption powers on her own boobs]].
* LongHairIsFeminine: WordOfGod says that Anvil keeps her hair very long due to some insecurity about her femininity, which in turn is due to her height and musculature. She's smart enough to tie her hair up securely if she knows that a fight is coming up, but she doesn't always get the chance -- and Vehemence for one opponent, being a canny fighter who has noticed her absorption power, [[http://grrlpowercomic.com/archives/1493 takes full advantage of this.]]
* MarshmallowHell: Anvil seems somewhat prone to this effect, thanks to her imposing figure, even by the standards of female supers in the setting:
** [[http://www.grrlpowercomic.com/archives/1290 She demonstrates a combat implementation of the trope here.]]
** Later, kind of inverting the trope, [[http://grrlpowercomic.com/archives/2126 Sydney rather walks into things, leading Anvil (and Dabbler) to discuss the subject.]]
* MuscleAngst: Part of why she keeps her hair long, and why she's worried about [[http://grrlpowercomic.com/archives/1810 her upcoming photo shoot]].
-->'''Anvil''': I appreciate that ''you'' appreciate fitness in women, Sydney, but [[NoGuyWantsAnAmazon most people have a much more narrow idea of female beauty]]. The further you stray from it... well, you can probably imagine why I might not be excited about being plastered all over the internet, home of [[{{GIFT}} pseudo bravery via anonymity]].
* NoSell: The biggest advantage to her primary power. She absorbs the full energy from any blow, and is then able to use ''that'' to fuel her SuperStrength.
* RedheadInGreen: She seems to understand the effectiveness of this combination. Her outfit at the steakhouse is primarily green, as is her choker. She's also introduced in a green T-shirt.
* StatuesqueStunner: Easily the tallest member of the team, [[http://grrlpowercomic.com/archives/852 which caused Maxima to lose a side-bet]] when she met Sydney.
* SuperStrength: One of the stronger members of the team.

!!Heatwave [=/=] Brook Falls

->''"You know what I don't get?"''

A ditzy pyrokinetic who's dating Mr. Amorphous.
----
* AnArmAndALeg: She loses her middle toe during the brawl and makes [[http://grrlpowercomic.com/archives/1814 a big deal of it]]. Peggy, who lost a whole leg in Iraq, isn't particularly sympathetic.
* TheDitz: Brook wonders how Maxima could have kissed Mr. Amorphous (Brook's boyfriend) and left lipstick on his face when Maxima doesn't wear lipstick. By the time she meets up with Amorphous again, she's ready to beat Max up -- until it is explained to her that Harem was actually responsible. She then tries to make boiling soda explode on Harem, who teleports out of the way, so Brook only soaks herself. She then threatens Harem by melting the can in her hand ... effectively welding her own hand shut. WordOfGod is that she isn't actually as dumb as she appears, but she tends to process information in a non-standard order.
* {{Expy}}: Her powers and parts of her personality suggest the [[ComicBook/FantasticFour Human Torch]] -- apart from her being a hot, ditzy, redheaded female, of course.
* FieryRedhead: She has both a hot-headed personality and heat powers.
* FlyingFirepower: Flight is a secondary power of hers.
* GlassCannon: Only about as tough as a normal human.
* IronicName: A heat based super-heroine who's real name is Brook (a small stream) (water)Fall.
* SignificantGreenEyedRedhead

----
* CaptainObvious: Falls afoul of this [[http://grrlpowercomic.com/archives/1398 when signaling to Jiggawatt what she should do]]. Her response is "Fucking doy", via sign-language.
* EnergyAbsorption: Turns out to be able to absorb sonic attacks and use them to enhance his strength.
* FlyingBrick: It's acknowledged that he comes across as a bit of a "Superman lite".
* MrFanservice: Often looses his shirt, much to the delight of his female teammates.
* PunnyName: Self-evident, really.
* StevenUlyssesPerhero: A borderline case, perhaps; named Hiro, superhero code name "Super Hiro".

!!Math [=/=] Mathias (Last name unknown)

->''"I can see your beautiful muscles flexing from a mile away!"''

An incredibly accomplished martial artist -- so much so that his skills skirt the line between training and actual superpowers. He's also a lecherous creep, though usually a lovable one.
----
* ArrogantKungFuGuy: A sympathetic version, but it's clear Math took the job to hopefully find a strong, worthwhile opponent at some point. When he meets one in [[http://grrlpowercomic.com/archives/1333 Jabberwokky]] his response is "FINALLY!"
* ChallengeSeeker: See ArrogantKungFuGuy, above.
* BadassBoast: Oh '''''[[http://grrlpowercomic.com/archives/1311 HELL]]''''' yes.
--> There's no such thing...([[PunchedAcrossTheRoom Punches superhuman across a parking lot]])...as ''just'' human.
* BadassNormal: Math's martial arts prowess is so great that Maxima describes it as "indistinguishable from superpowers"; it certainly allows him to mess with Anvil without getting pummeled senseless, and to tackle several empowered villains simultaneously. He can still be blindsided when he gets [[SuicidalOverconfidence arrogantly overconfident]] or DistractedByTheSexy, however. (Though it's possible that he faked getting surprised by Sydney, and was just hoping for guilt-based CPR.)
* CharlesAtlasSuperpower: Math is the only person on the field team that we know of without superpowers. Instead, he's just a martial artist ... one so skilled that it's impossible to tell the difference between him and someone with superpowers. Actually, this is more or less literally true; he has [[http://www.grrlpowercomic.com/archives/1311 demonstrated the ability to kick a large, stone-bodied supervillain into the air, and then send her flying for yards with a follow-up punch.]]
* LovableSexManiac:
** Math is obviously a martial artist in the style of [[DragonBall Master Roshi]].
--->'''Math''': Sensible. That is my kind of woman. Eh, who am I kidding, they're ''all'' my type.
** Deconstructed when, as Maxima calls him on later, he is so distracted when Jabberwokky's jacket falls open and he gets a peek at her breasts that she could easily take him out.
* ThoseTwoGuys: Ironically, he seems to have this relationship with Harem off duty. He is usually shown alongside her, and she tolerates his LovableSexManiac antics more then the other women on the team.
* {{Troll}}: When he's not busy looking for new and impressive foes to fight, he likes to mess with the other supers, as demonstrated in his fight with Anvil.

A super-stretchy member of the Arc-SWAT team. Currently dating Heatwave.
----
* {{Expy}}: To some extent, in terms of abilities, of various famous comic-book rubber men: Mr. Fantastic, Plastic Man, and the Elongated Man. However, he seems to focus less on the stretching as such and more on the benefits control of his body gives him -- strength, toughness, disguise, and so on.
* PowerPerversionPotential: In the words of Maxima...
-->'''Maxima''': Brook's a lucky girl, isn't she?
* RubberMan: His primary superpower.
* ShapeShifting: Control of his bodily form extends to disguise abilities.

->''"You can only drive a car off a plane into an ammo dump so many times before it gets boring."''

An utterly invulnerable man (to the extent that he takes calming swims in active volcanoes and knocks missiles out of the air with his face). Personality-wise, Achilles is somewhat stuck in the '80s, though it's uncertain whether that's just what he's like or if it's a side-effect of his powers.
----
* TheAgeless: Apparently part of his invulnerability--nothing can harm him, not even time.
* BoringButPractical: He gets the worst reception at the power demonstration after headbutting a tank.
-->'''AltText''': No one appreciates a good defense.
* ClothingDamage: After hanging out in an explosion, he gets mad that the marshmallows in his pocket melted, ruining his jacket. Then we see that the entire back of his outfit is gone. WordOfGod is that he goes through clothes like TheIncredibleHulk does, only without transforming.
* DeusExitMachina: During the first big fight, he quickly gets trapped under the rubble of the restaurant, so he is out of the fight when Vehemence shows up. His power would have been extremely useful against Vehemence, especially if he was immune to [[spoiler:his violence aura]].
* DidNotThinkThisThrough: Pulls off a pretty good plan by blocking Heavenly Sword's energy blade with his eyeball, counting on the shock of seeing that making her drop the sword. He then ends up picked up by the villainess and thrown into a wall, which she then drops on him, taking him out of the fight.
* DiscoDan: Still dresses, and acts, like it's the 1980's. May have something to do with how he's [[OlderThanHeLooks actually in his 50's,]] and going through some kind of mid-life crisis.
* EyeScream: Since he's invulnerable, he can {{invoke|dTrope}} this trope to squick out the person he's fighting.
-->'''Heavenly Sword:''' Euugh! Why would you block a sword with your ''eye!?''\\
'''Achilles:''' [[BatmanGambit To get you to drop it]], of course!
* FastballSpecial: He can be utilized as a human bullet by his stronger teammates.
* FightsLikeANormal: He's invulnerable, but not really that much more powerful than a normal human otherwise.
* LogicalWeakness: His invulnerability is his only real power, and he's completely taken out of the fight when he's trapped under rubble.
* MeaningfulName: Well, it's a superheroic codename, but Achilles is obviously named for [[AchillesHeel Achilles, minus the heel]].
* NighInvulnerable:
** He's described as having "Proper, aggravating invincibility." He's shrugged off attacks that can destroy matter ''on the subatomic level.''
** He once stopped a cruise missile by headbutting it, and "didn't feel" the resulting explosion.
** He's the only one other than Maxima to hang out in the massive explosion she caused.
** His eyeball can block an energy blade.
* NoSell: As of yet, nothing has been able to get past his powers.
* OlderThanTheyLook: As part of being TheAgeless. He's a little over fifty, but looks to be in his mid-twenties.
* RequiredSecondaryPowers: Something of an inversion, in that he doesn't have full SuperStrength but he is functionally somewhat stronger than a normal human because his invulnerability means he can't injure himself by straining too hard.
* StockScream: Lets loose the [[WesternAnimation/{{Goofy}} Goofy Holler]] when punched through a roof.
* StoneWall: He's NighInvulnerable minus the nigh. The problem being, he's otherwise basically just a normal person (albeit 1.5 times as strong as most, since he doesn't have to worry about tearing muscles or anything).
* YouFightLikeACow: His unofficial "Power".

[[quoteright:110:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/x_gp_1668.jpg]]
!!X [=/=] (Civilian Name Unknown)

->'''Sydney:''' What's your name?\\
'''X:''' ...X.\\
'''Sydney:''' That's forgettably generic.\\
'''X:''' That's the point.

The classified handler Archon has watching Dabbler, just in case she was serving as the vanguard of an invasion force, or something similar. He's laconic and pragmatic, suiting his job as a spy; he evidently uses a high-tech invisibility/stealth suit, which may be his own design. The only member of Arcdark so far seen (or possibly acknowledged).
----
* EveryoneCallsHimBarkeep: X's real name is unrevealed.
* {{Invisibility}}: Basically the only power we've seen from him thus far (along with matching silence).

[[folder:Jiggawatt]]
[[quoteright:143:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/jiggawatt_5851.jpg]]
!!Jiggawatt [=/=] (Civilian Name Unknown)

A lightning- oriented super; she can create lightning, control lightning, and turn into lightning, allowing her rapid travel. She seems to have a mildly goofy sense of humor combined with a readiness to do the job she's paid for.
----
* {{Electric Black G|uy}}al: Insofar as she manifests the trope, she's a slightly unusual {{gender flip}}ped version. Actually, her specific appearance and lightning-hurling combat style might make her a bit more like a visual {{Expy}} of Storm of the ComicBook/XMen, although when the writer realized this, he changed her hair color retroactively from white to gold, to reduce the similarity.
* HandBlast: Her basic offensive power; point at people and zap them with lightning. She's fast enough to knock incoming thrown objects out of the air with a reflex defensive blast.
* RideTheLightning: How she gets around when she needs to be quick. Her most powerful offensive option is to turn into lightning and throw herself at an opponent.
* SassyBlackWoman: Jiggawatt tends this way in the last few panels of [[http://grrlpowercomic.com/archives/1398 this strip]].
* ShockAndAwe: Her schtick -- lightning is her power.
* SpellMyNameWithAnS: According to the cast page, she specifically spells her name this way (instead of Gigawatt) because she wants it spelled like [[Film/BackToTheFuture Doc Brown said it]].
* SteelEarDrums: Averted. She's rendered temporarily deaf after being caught in a large explosion, and even after being treated by a doctor with healing powers, she still has some permanent hearing loss.
* UnwittingInstigatorOfDoom: Nearly turns into this during the post-press conference battle. Seems her powers also include the ability to generate positrons (''i.e.'' antimatter), and doing so naturally creates a large amount of gamma radiation. Dabbler reacted with suitable panic to both neutralize what radiation had already been produced as well as discourage Jiggawatt from continuing to use her powers in that fashion.

->''"Well, I can take a shower in ninety seconds, get dressed in under sixty, and make a bottle of shampoo last six months."''

A new recruit for ARCHON, in the same "class" as Sydney.
----
* TheBigGuy: Is notably taller than all the other recruits.
* EmbarrassingNickname:
** Ren is hoping to avoid an annoying superhero moniker, like "the Black Hulk" (or as Sydney suggests, "the Blulk").
** There's also, to an extent, his actual nickname, "Ren." No one is quite sure how he got it, but it's stuck.
* SuperSpeed: Has "some kind of super adrenaline" that causes him to perceive time much more slowly, essentially giving him super speed and super reaction time.
* SuperStrength: Ren implies that his "super adrenaline" also boosts his strength.

!! Varia [=/=] Xochitl Xochiquetzal

->''"Hiya Halo, I saw footage of you at the cah pahk battle last night, I'm wicked jealous."''

A Bostonian Aztec-American member of the team, again in the same "class" as Sydney, with a gestalt ability that changes based on who she is touching.
----
* UsefulNotes/AmericanAccents: Although she's Aztec by heritage, she grew up around Boston, and has an accent to match. This threw Halo the moment she started talking.
* AnIcePerson: Her power from touching Heatwave.
* DisappearedDad: When Sydney learns that Xochitl never knew her father, [[http://grrlpowercomic.com/archives/1873 she immediately sets up a betting pool]]. 9:1 [[HumanMomNonhumanDad alien father]], 20:1 alien father and he's a space emperor, making her a space princess. 18:1 a nymph, 15:1 a wizard, 20:1 Quetzacoatl or some other god.
* HollywoodMagnetism: The power she gets from Jiggawatt is magnetism, which she uses to help rebuild the overpass.
* HowDoIShootWeb: Just because she gets a power doesn't mean she knows what it is and the specifics of its function.
* LamarckWasRight: If not with her and her DisappearedDad, the powers she gets from people tend to share themes within families.
* LogicalWeakness: She can't use her powers without touching someone (though Halo wonders if it's possible that she could activate her powers with blood samples and the like), so she can't fight solo, especially since her attacks are useless on the people she gets them from (which thankfully means that the person she touches is immune to any HowDoIShootWeb mishaps).
* MagicAIsMagicA: She always gets the same power from a person.
* MeaningfulName:
** She's called Varia because she has a "gestalt power," which changes depending on what person she's in physical contact with. There's little in the way of an apparent pattern for her powers, so she has theoretically as many powers as there are people on Earth.
** Her real name is meaningful as well. Xochiquetzal was an Aztec goddess of fertility, beauty and strength, while Xochitl is the Aztec word for "flower." However, in a subversion of this trope, it has exactly zilch to do with her powers.
** [[invoked]] WordOfGod says the subversion is a bit of a jab at characters that take it kinda to the point where suspension of disbelief starts to fail.
* MissingDad: She never knew her father, and all her mother will say is that he was full-blooded Aztec. The second Sydney finds this out, she sets up a betting pool for everything from pagan god to mad scientist who built Varia in a lab.
-->'''Varia:''' I get a cut, right?\\
'''Sydney:''' Ten percent.\\
'''Varia:''' Twenty-five or no deal.\\
'''Sydney:''' Fine. Unless it's the star princess one and you wind up with a currency with your face on it.
* NewPowersAsThePlotDemands: Sort of.
** The powers she manifests are dependent on who she's just made physical contact with, so as long as she keeps the right people around, she can have as many powers as the situation requires.
** In particular, when she touches people who also have superpowers, the powers she manifests ''tend'' to be related to that person's own powers. She can "ride along" with Harem, for example, while touching [[PlayingWithFire Heatwave]] gave her ice powers in contrast.
** The powers she gains from various people also seem to be similar amongst blood relatives -- which means that she can sometimes identify such relationships by experimentation. One panel shows her telling a small Chinese girl that she is adopted.
--->'''Girl:''' Duh, my parents are white.
** Notably, though, she gets ''no'' powers from touching Maxima. They're not sure why, but Maxima does have very unusual (and tough) skin.
** Touching Sydney doesn't give her any obvious powers, but neither notices immediately that Sydney's halo of orbs extends to revolve around Varia as well. What this means remains to be seen.
* NoSell: The powers she gains from touching a person don't affect them.
* OverlyLongName: Her real name, Xochitl Xochiquetzal, is a mouthful for everyone but her.
* RequiredSecondaryPowers: The people she touches to get powers are immune to said powers, preventing any problems that might occur from the manifestation.
* StevenUlyssesPerhero: A jab at this kind of thing in comics.
* TakeThat: As mentioned above, she's a jab at characters that take {{Meaningful Name}}s to the point where suspension of disbelief starts to falter.

----
* AmbiguouslyHuman: He claims to be a MobileSuitHuman wearing superpowered colony of spiders with a HiveMind, but he may just be hazing Sydney. WordOfGod is whether or not that's true is undecided until it's officially put into the comic.
* CreepyGood: A HiveMind of sentient spiders (if his story is true), but a good guy (if a bit of a {{Troll}}.
* HiveMind: Claims to be a colony of spiders with a collective intelligence, which he directly compares to the Borg.
* MobileSuitHuman: Claims that his "body" is one of these that's made out of special polymers that his spiders inhabit.
* {{Troll}}: He hazes Sydney by telling her that he is a MobileSuitHuman HiveMind of intelligent, superpowered spiders. Whether or not it's true, or if he's just lying, is ambiguous.
* TheWormThatWalks: Claims to be a mass of spiders in reality. He may just be messing with Sydney.

!!Pixel Lucado


An Arc-Light special agent with the investigation branch who has some "expertise with artifacts".
----
* BadassAdorable: She's only slightly taller than Sydney and she looks like an anime character, but to be a member of ARCON then by definition you qualify as a badass.
* BoobsOfSteel: Averted for Pixel, which makes her rather unusual among supers. [[spoiler: Played straight when in her were-cat form.]]
* BrutalHonesty: Flat-out states that people have told her that Halo is weird.
* DoesNotLikeShoes: Only seen wearing flip flops, and will kick them off to go barefoot when indoors. [[spoiler:This makes more sense after she's revealed to be a were-jaguar: when she shifts her feet become digitigrade like a cat's and would prevent her from wearing shoes, so it would be convenient for her to wear something easy to remove.]]
* {{Invisibility}}: [[spoiler:Can turn invisible in full-jaguar mode]].
* KinkySpanking: Apparently she's into being spanked.
* LaserBlade: [[spoiler:Her power as a super is laser-claws in her hybrid and animal forms]].
* NeverHeardThatOneBefore: Said pretty much word for word to Harem after [[spoiler: the latter jokes about her being a [[Film/ThePinkPanther panther]] upon finding out she's a pink were-jaguar]].
* OlderThanTheyLook: Pixel looks like a ten-year-old, but WordOfGod is that that's an unintentional side-effect of her art style.
* [[spoiler: OurWerebeastsAreDifferent]]: [[spoiler: Unbeknownst to most of ARCHON, Pixel is a werecat, specifically a were-jaguar, almost doubling in height (and growing in [[BreastExpansion other ways]]) when transformed. Plus has laser claws]]
* TheRival: Downplayed, but Sydney is not happy at finding someone who channels the same aesthetic that Sydney does. Pixel doesn't seem to have a problem with it, though, or even to have noticed.
* SupernaturalGoldEyes: Turns from blue-green to gold when [[spoiler: in her were-cat form.]]

->''"Superpowers are like vegans--they can't ''wait'' to tell you about them."''

A sniper and helicopter pilot, and the only active-duty member of ARCHON we meet who doesn't have superpowers or a close approximation thereto.
----
* AnArmAndALeg: Lost part of a leg in combat.
* BadassNormal: Peggy is clearly very good at what she does, and feels perfectly able to work with a team of supers.
* BiTheWay: She offhandedly explains that she's more attracted to people rather than genders, after Sydney initially picks up a lesbian vibe off her looks, then notices her [[EatingTheEyeCandy enjoying]] the parade of shirtless superguys.
* BlastingItOutOfTheirHands: When told to try and avoid fatalities in a large-scale combat, Peggy can always resort to, say, shooting a sword out of an opponent's hands.
* FriendlySniper: Evidently her primary function when the team gets into fights.
* GenreSavvy: Her "supers are like vegans, they can't wait to tell you all about [their powers]" speech was proven correct by the end of the page. It's later proven right ''again'' during the team's first battle where many of the villains do in fact boast or show off their powers -- though some have to be prompted by Sydney.
* HandicappedBadass: She's a military sniper who lost her leg in action -- but none of her badassitude.
* ImprobableAimingSkills: While not as cinematic as some, she ''does'' shoot a sword out of somebody's hands, at sniping ranges, in the middle of a fight.
* PunnyName: She's got a prosthetic leg. And her name is Peggy. Har har. Sydney [[OpenMouthInsertFoot inserts]] ''[[OpenMouthInsertFoot several]]'' feet [[http://grrlpowercomic.com/archives/925 into her mouth]] when trying to IgnoreTheDisability.

!!Arianna

->''"Yes... twist on my finger! MUAHAHAHA!"''

The PR representative and legal counsel for ARCHON. Enjoys tweaking Maxima and manipulating the press.
----
* AmoralAttorney: Largely averted so far. She points out she can't screw Sydney over with the Archon contract because then she'd have to sue herself later. And after confirming that a waitress at the steakhouse the villains just wrecked can definitely sue said villains for damages, she offers to help in doing so with much enthusiasm -- although admittedly that fits with some of her devious ideas about making life difficult for supervillains.
* TheChessmaster: Arianna is seen playing Maxima like a fiddle for her amusement and the advancement of her organization as a bonus. Further events may eventually upgrade this status to MagnificentBastard. However, Max seems to be manipulating right back at her...
* LargeHam: While she's mostly one of the sanest characters around, her manic moments jump headfirst into full-on ham territory, usually with some of the most exaggerated expression in the comic.
* TheMerch: Invoked in universe; part of her job as PR consultant is to push merchandise. She loves Sydney's orbs because it means "collect them all!", and hated Maxima's demonstration because they played havoc with her sales projections.
* NotMeThisTime: Since she arranged the fake bank heist, Maxima apparently assumes that Arianna may also have staged the first supervillain attack. In a wordless conversation of expressions and gestures across the room, Ariana emphatically insists otherwise.
* NotSoAboveItAll: While she normally leans more towards an OnlySaneWoman, she's had her moments.
* OnlySaneWoman: As a pragmatic (and manipulative) non-powered lawyer with PR responsibilities towards a team of supers, Arianna tends towards this trope. Though she's had one or two manic moments.

The officer in charge of ARCHON.
----
* ClosetGeek: Dabbler reads his fantasy and changes into an [[spoiler:[[Series/StarTrekTheOriginalSeries Orion Slave Girl]]]]. There are other hints too.
* EveryoneCallsHimBarkeep: Well, it's not too unusual to refer to the one general present as "the General."
* GlassesPull: For especially [[http://www.grrlpowercomic.com/archives/479 dramatic moments.]]
* RealMenWearPink: Apparently the General is a fan of ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePony'', ''Anime/{{Pokemon}}'' and ''Franchise/SailorMoon''. Though that might just be because he has grandkids.
* TheWonka:
** The General is shaping up to be this. The fact that his uniform seems to be a shade of purple helps.

The technical expert at ARCHON. A self-avowed nerd with a bit of a complex about dealing with beautiful women (which makes working with superheroines an ... interesting prospect).
----
* CannotTalkToWomen: The incredibly pretty ones, anyway. He seems okay with Sydney. Also with Maxima, likely because she doesn't flaunt when having discussions with him.
* {{Geek}}: Actually, Leon proclaims himself to be both a geek and a {{Nerd}}, and Sydney has checked him out and confirmed this. However, their use of the latter term doesn't really accord with the definition used on this site.
* HollywoodHacking: He [[http://www.grrlpowercomic.com/archives/327 mercilessly skewers it]] in one memorable exchange.
* HackerCave: His office in Archon headquarters is a fairly clean, well-lit example. We see at least four monitors and several cans of soda.

* CoolOldGuy: Totally fine with Sydney's quip about Asian antique shops and generally seems like a laid-back and funny guy.

[[quoteright:144:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/halo_4366.jpg]]
!!Halo [=/=] Sydney Scoville

->''"My hyperactivity gives me an initiative bonus!"''

The lead character of the comic, Sydney is a hyperactive, tightly-wound geek who part-owns and runs a comic-book shop. She's also the newest member of Arc-SWAT, and is a bit of an oddity, as she's just a normal human bonded to seven mysterious orbs which give her superpowers.
----
* ACupAngst: Especially when comparing herself with Maxima or some of the other supers she encounters. Peggy tells her that it's okay, because Peggy is built similarly, and "the A Team sticks together." Sydney is not amused.
* {{Adorkable}}: With her big round glasses, superhero shirts, and annoying-yet-oddly-charming personality.
* AlliterativeName: '''S'''ydney '''S'''coville.
* AncientArtifact: Halo has seven of them. They're floating orbs in the colors of the spectrum, and each one gives her a different superpower:
** The orange one is pretty well a WaveMotionGun. With the random upgrade she bought while fighting a golem, she now has access to [[MoreDakka rapid fire mode.]]
** The yellow one makes an illusion of her that she can see and hear through. It also grants her TrueSight, the ability to see through illusions or invisibility. She later finds a setting that grants AuraVision. [[spoiler:She unlocks a new ability that allows her to teleport to her illusion's location]].
** [[{{Flight}} The blue one lets her fly]].
** [[BarrierWarrior The indigo one lets her generate force fields]].
** [[MindOverMatter The violet one gives her a telekinetic energy-pseudopod]].
** [[ChekhovsGun She hasn't figured out what the red and green ones do]].
* {{Angrish}}: The things that Sydney says in an angry [[http://www.grrlpowercomic.com/archives/197 rant]] can cause a passing [[http://www.grrlpowercomic.com/archives/201 sailor]] to blush.
* {{Ascended Fan|boy}}girl: A comics nerd turned superhero.
* AttentionDeficitOohShiny: She has ADHD, she's on medication one step down from methamphetamine for it, and it still isn't enough to fully regulate the condition.
* AuraVision: A subpower of her yellow orb.
* AwesomeByAnalysis: When Sydney deliberately crosses her GenreSavvy with her ADHD ability to come at problems from angles nobody would usually expect by throwing the kitchen sink at them and seeing what might stick, awesome can, in fact, ensue. As Vehemence found to his cost.
* BadLiar: Sydney [[http://www.grrlpowercomic.com/archives/163 cannot tell a convincing lie]], occasionally leading to CassandraTruth-style problems. It just doesn't help that she really ''was'' trying to get away from a group of nuns...
* BarrierWarrior: When using the indigo orb. Not only can she change the size of the force field to cover large groups of people, it's strong enough to take some of Maxima's most powerful attacks without difficulty. It even gives her immunity to some non-physical attacks [[spoiler: like Vehemence's aggro aura.]] It also protects the ''ground'' at her feet, as evidenced when Maxima hit someone -- at the time anchoring himself to the ground -- [[SuperStrength hard enough]] to ''[[MegatonPunch lift the street]]''... and Sidney's shield kept the ground at the same level it was when she shielded herself, making a hole on the raised portion.
* BlindWithoutEm: Invoked but averted: [[http://www.grrlpowercomic.com/archives/1290 Sydney pretends she's helpless without her glasses to get a villain off his guard]]. She then boasts about averting the trope (thereby lampshading the aversion), pointing out that no one is so blind as to not see someone moving right near them just because you take their glasses off, at least not in law enforcement. (She points out that there ''are'' people that blind.)
* BoringButPractical: For all the amazing powers her orbs provide, her fallback option tends to be just using them to telekinetically hit people who get too close. It helps that this is the one function of the orbs that doesn't require her to hold them in her hands.
* BunnyEarsLawyer: Her wacky antics may make her a major nuisance, but her abilities and competence make her far too valuable to the team to justify dismissing her. Much of the nuisance factor may be a result of her beng a FishOutOfWater, and is something Maxima is trying to fix.
* CleavageWindow: Stealth subversion. The cleavage window shirt Sydney wears is a ComicBook/PowerGirl t-shirt with a fake cleavage design. The same design can be seen in the comic store window during the exterior shot, [[http://grrlpowercomic.com/archives/163 as shown here]].
* ClingyMacGuffin: Sydney and her power-spheres ''cannot'' be separated by more than a certain distance. Even Maxima, who can lift a truck with one hand, simply can't pull them apart - though it's an odd case, as she can't drag Syd around by yanking on them, either. This allows Sydney a little bit of gloating at Max (especially when she falls on her butt), but is perhaps her one weakness - if they're pinned in place, she's trapped.
* CloudCuckooLander: A card-carrying, tax-paying resident of Cloudcuckooland. She acts like the sun burns her, vampire-style (though it doesn't), keeps up a Creator/DavidAttenborough or Creator/JacquesCousteau-style commentary while scuba-diving, and has a doodle of herself marrying a shirtless Wolverine in her note book (which she calls 'the list')
* ClusterFBomb:
** While not containing solely F-words, [[http://www.grrlpowercomic.com/archives/197 Sydney's cursing]] ''did'' manage to make a [[VisualPun sailor blush]]... though that might be [[http://www.grrlpowercomic.com/archives/201 because of the nuns behind her]].
** In a FunnyBackgroundEvent, when Sydney is giving the interview, even ''the censors'' [[http://www.grrlpowercomic.com/archives/389 comment on it.]]
--->'''News crawler:''' Please make this girl stop cursing. I feel like I'm playing ''VideoGame/{{Diablo}}'' with the censor button.
* CombatTentacles: What she uses the violet orb for on occasion.
* ComboPlatterPowers:
** Sydney’s seven orbs each do very different things. One gives her flight, one gives her a very impressive force field, one makes a energy-tentacle ... thing, one gives her telepresence and truesight, one makes a powerful energy blast, and the other two no one has any idea about. She can only use two at a time, though, one for each hand.
** This gets taken even further as we learn more about the Orbs. Not only do several of them seem to come with secondary modes, [[spoiler:but they also come with a ''large'' skill tree]]. It's possible that at full power she could end up equaling Dabbler or even Max.
* CompanionCube: Sydney's tube, at least in her early scenes. She uses it to hold her power orbs (which otherwise deploy themselves in a ring around her, explaining her hero name), and treats it almost as if it were sentient. Most of her BlatantLies are attempts at covering up what's really inside it.
* CuriosityIsACrapshoot: As annoying and obnoxious as she is, it's a very bad idea to leave her unsupervised. She will wander off and get into an attic/storage compartment and start to play with things she doesn't understand in her boredom.
* CutenessOverload: Her reaction to [[http://grrlpowercomic.com/archives/2205 meeting a were-hare is quite telling.]]
* DarkSecret: Parodied. Sydney doesn't want the rest of Arc-SWAT to know that [[spoiler:she's a vegetarian]]. Sadly, one of the people she does tell is one of Harem's duplicates, and the other four spill to everyone else within a page.
* DistractedByTheSexy:
** When she's trying to think of a plan to stop [[spoiler:Vehemence]], she keeps thinking about ComicBook/{{Batman}}, including him dancing with a bat-themed codpiece and no shirt in front of Catwoman.
** Earlier, she finds out that succubus breasts are literally hypnotic, and [[spoiler:uses this to distract Vehemence by having Dabbler jump up and down]].
** Later, she totally misses her very shirtless teammate's instructions to use a wrist band GPS device.
* DroppedGlasses: Sydney drops her glasses while eating ultra-spicy ramen. [[http://www.grrlpowercomic.com/archives/697 just in time]] to catch a spiced noodle [[EyeScream to the eye.]] She also later drops them during her first real super-battle, but actually turns that to her advantage; see the note on BlindWithoutEm.
* EarWorm: Invoked in universe; Sydney seems to be prone to this problem [[{{Cloudcuckoolander}} because of her ADHD]]. During her AwesomeByAnalysis moment, she keeps thinking about Batman ... and, after her plan takes shape inside her mind, Batman pops up once more singing "I'm the Bat-man!" to the tune of Music/ScatmanJohn, and it gets stuck in her head.
* EmpoweredBadassNormal: Prior to using, or even getting, her orbs, she's had some kind of martial arts training, as one of her first on-screen actions is taking down a man at least a foot taller and one and a half times as heavy, with military training, super-powers, and a gun, in a matter of seconds, while she herself is unarmed, and her backstory has her being accosted by a mugger, and her giving him a beatdown so thorough, the official report can only say "oh the humanity." Her orbs make her deadlier by giving her more options, such that she can match Math in combat whose martial arts skills are to the level where he's indistinguishable from a super-powered individual.
* EyeScream: 3 million Scoville noodle, directly to the eye. [[http://www.grrlpowercomic.com/archives/697 Medic...]]
* FireBreathingDiner: Finding a place that serves food hot enough to induce this is one of Sydney's favorite things. [[http://www.grrlpowercomic.com/archives/697 She eventually succeeds.]]
* FlyingBrick: In effect... Her orbs can give her flight, invulnerability, and a strong energy tentacle -- but only any two of those at a time.
* GatlingGood: The PPO can fire a rapid stream of low-powered fireballs.
* {{Geek}}: And assertive about it. Not that a comics-shop-owning pop culture fan like her can exactly hide it. She might also label herself a {{Nerd}}, but she doesn't really fit the definition used on this site.
* GeekyTurnOn: She is attracted to Leon not only because he's tall but because he is a geek AND a nerd. She briefly considers marrying him and having him change his last name to Scoville.
* GenkiGirl: In all her ADHD glory. There are times when she seems to be intentionally channeling Tomo from ''Manga/AzumangaDaioh''.
* GenreSavvy: [[AllThereInTheManual According to her entry in the cast page]], one of Sydney's advantages is that [[RulesLawyer she can come up with more power stunts]] than the people whose powers they are. This is demonstrated in the opening pages, where she proves how her attack in a superhero tabletop game actually worked despite the villain's force-field.
* HeIsNotMyBoyfriend : Yeah, but you wish he [[http://www.grrlpowercomic.com/archives/149 was,]] Sydney.
* InnocentlyInsensitive: Due to having a hard time filtering anything she says, she tends to insult or otherwise offend people without meaning to do so. It comes to a head during the meeting with the various supernatural entities in the setting when she offends the resident FriendlyNeighborhoodVampire with a popular meme.
--> '''Sydney:''' In Russia, the hunger eats you.\\
'''Ivor:''' I AM NOT RUSSIAN!
* KarmaHoudini: Thanks to Harem's prank grabbing Maxima's attention, Sydney apparently gets away with snagging Max's [[NiceHat hat]] -- and getting away with pulling stuff on Max isn't always easy. She later loses it again, but suffers no punishment.
* {{Keet}}: As expected of someone with ADHD, she's ''very'' easily excitable.
* LethalChef: Describes her spaghetti sauce as "weapons grade". It apparently involves [[BlazingInfernoHellfireSauce peppers that are red, but are not red peppers]].
* LogicalWeakness:
** Sydney's shield that blocks anything also does not allow for air flow. After holding one around herself from most of the fight she starts to get lightheaded and is told to drop it for a few moments to get her air back. She does point out the FridgeLogic in that weakness though, like how changing the size of the shield doesn't seem to affect the pressure of the air inside it.
** She also has no SuperStrength orb, which means that she is exactly as physically strong as you would expect a nerdy young woman who doesn't seem very athletic to be, so she's unable to lift up a heavy gun at one point (though she probably could have with proper leverage, albeit with difficulty).
* MakeUpIsEvil: Downplayed, but Sydney's not wearing make-up makes her feel this way.
* MasochistsMeal: Sydney likes it ''hot''.
-->'''Sydney:''' Do you have a dab of pure cap I could garnish this with?[[note]]"Pure cap," here, referring to ''pure capsacin,'' the chemical that makes peppers spicy.[[/note]]
* MasterOfIllusion: Minor example; she can produce an illusory copy of herself she can see and hear through, courtesy of the yellow comm-ball orb.
* MeaningfulName: Sydney '''[[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scoville_scale Scoville]]''' loves spicy food, as {{lampshaded}} by [[http://grrlpowercomic.com/archives/194 Mrs. B. at the restaurant]].
* {{Meganekko}}: She wears glasses.
* MuggingTheMonster: A background check reveals that she was once arrested for assault. Maxima does not find that surprising. What surprises everyone in the board room is that she was found not-guilty due to acting in self-defense ''because somebody actually tried to mug her.'' The only description in the official police report is "Oh, the humanity!". Further, when her co-worker/business partner hears about the bank robbery, he's concerned about the fate of the bank robbers.
* MundaneUtility: Halo realizes she could totally cheat at Skeeball using the orbs. She can also use them to hit people with as they hurtle round her. In fact, this sometimes seems to be becoming her primary combat technique.
* TheNapoleon: Halo sometimes gets peeved about being the smallest super in the cast.
* {{Nerdgasm}}: She begins to hyperventilate in excitement at meeting a were-dire honey badger.
* NightmareFetishist: When Sydney finds out that vampires and werewolves are ''real'', rather than being shocked and horrifed, she's overjoyed and squeals with childish glee, even going so far as to hug a ''very big and imposing'' werewolf around the waist and commenting on how "fluffy" his fur is, and then proceeding to troll said werewolf with a camera like a photographer talking to a model.
* NonstandardCharacterDesign: Sydney is very often drawn in cartoony poses while the rest of the cast is drawn more realistically.
* NoSell: Her orbs are immune to any and all forms of scanning, from magical to technological. Several functions (most notably the skill tree) are only visible to organic eyes. Dabbler theorizes it's some sort of illusory or psychic light that is masking itself, but she isn't able to confirm it. Krona was able to see the "source code" of the orbs when the skill tree pops up, but Krona's magic is so unique that she's considered an entire faction of magic all by herself.
* OnlyTheKnowledgableMayPass: Her nerd-test with Leon.
* OOCIsSeriousBusiness: Peggy realized that she pushed Sydney too far when Sydney yelled out "Fuck BATMAN!"
* PervertedDrooling: When [[http://www.grrlpowercomic.com/archives/672 presented with a roomful of shirtless, perfectly-muscled superhero hunks]].
* PoliticallyIncorrectHero: {{Downplayed}} but present, mostly because she has almost no filter on what she says. She's currently being trained by Arianna to have a bit more of a self-censor, with... [[http://grrlpowercomic.com/archives/2119 limited success thus far]].
-->'''Arianna''': It would be a shame to refine you into a more considerate individual then have you insult every Irish person the first time you stub your toe on camera.\\
'''Sydney''': So... don't say stuff like "potato deficient famine jockeys"?
* PopCulturedBadass: She obviously has a detailed knowledge of internet memes, enjoys ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' enough to have it's opening theme for a ringtone, and when Maxima is testing the strength of her forcefield, Halo starts dancing while singing "Can't Touch This" as well as proclaiming that she is [[{{Film/Goldeneye}} "EENWEENCIBLE!"]]
* PowerIncontinence: Due presumably to her powers deriving from the orbs and not from herself, Sydney has difficulty judging their level. She can't assess how fast she is flying, for instance, or use her energy blasts below maximum output. This has led to both a few accidents and some AchievementsInIgnorance.
* PowerPerversionPotential: Invoked; when asked to name the orb that produces an [[CombatTentacles energy tentacle]], Sydney initially suggests "[[{{Hentai}} hentorb,]]" "molestorb" and "[[NamesToRunAwayFromVeryFast The Violator.]]" Eventually, she's forced to pick the more PR-friendly "lighthook."
* ProudToBeAGeek: Sydney is not only very open in her geekery, she explicitly considers geekiness something to be proud of.
* PuppyDogEyes: Sydney's [[http://grrlpowercomic.com/archives/1715 force Maxima to make a Will Save]].
* RequiredSecondaryPowers:
** While her shield has the LogicalWeakness of being ''so'' strong that air can't pass through it, she lampshades how it apparently can compensate and eliminate the change in air pressure that changing its size would cause.
** The flight orb cancels out vertigo while she's holding it, which is good because normally she's slightly acrophobic.
** Although ''she'' is nowhere near strong enough to lift a small car, the Lighthook can without putting any strain on Sydney. It is eventually revealed that the lighthook can lift somewhere around 16 tons before Sydney starts to feel the strain.
* RulesLawyer: Sydney, in her superhero RPG game. She knows all the tropes concerning superpowers and how to bend them to her will. This is likely to translate into GenreSavvy later on.
* SarcasticConfession: See the link under BadLiar above. The [[spoiler:last one]] is the truth.
* SirSwearsalot: When she gets excited (i.e. a lot of the time), Sydney is prone to swearing in a stream-of-consciousness fashion.
-->'''Math''': [[http://grrlpowercomic.com/archives/838 She's definitely got a blackbelt in cursing]]. 5th... no, 7th dan.
* SkillScoresAndPerks: The Orbs apparently come with a [[http://www.grrlpowercomic.com/archives/1166 skill tree]].
-->'''Sydney:''' ''DING'' mutha fuckas!
* SpannerInTheWorks: If a villain tries to do anything where she happens to be, she will somehow be in the right place, at the right time to thwart it.
* SuperPowerLottery: See AncientArtifact above.
* SuperSpeed: Can fly at up to Mach 4, and has yet to fully power up the Flight Orb.
* TheyWouldCutYouUp:
** [[http://www.grrlpowercomic.com/archives/317 Her (completely unfounded) fear if her powers are discovered.]]
** [[http://www.grrlpowercomic.com/archives/457 Also here with an Invader Zim reference.]]
* TeleportersAndTransporters: [[spoiler:Gains the ability to teleport to the place her illusion version is]].
* TongueTrauma: Narrowly averted when Sydney pulled a robber by the tongue and slammed him to the ground. [[spoiler: "averted" because the robber was another super-powered being who was in disguise. His power just happened to also be extreme stretchiness.]]
* TooKinkyToTorture: Nonsexual example -- she speaks dismissively to the waitress at a spicy-food-oriented restaurant, prompting them to dose her food with ''"[[BlazingInfernoHellfireSauce The Unmaker]]."'' To the astonishment of all involved, she ''loves'' it, and the only problem she has is when a noodle flick into her eye. In fact, getting the hottest food she could [[BatmanGambit appears to be why Sydney dissed the waitress in the first place]].
* UnusualEyebrows: Mild example: her shaggy lady brows are an unique trait for her.
* UselessUsefulSpell: Her truesight is the strongest anyone has ever seen, able to pierce a Succubus glamor with ease. Unfortunately, it can't pierce more mundane disguises, and illusionists are apparently exceptionally rare on Earth.
-->'''Deus:''' I'm sure in her line of work she'll eventually meet most of them.
* WaveMotionGun: The default mode of the PPO.
* WeakButSkilled: The first thing Maxima saw that actually gathered her interest during the "bank robbery" is Sydney single-handed taking down a guy OneHeadTaller, with super-powers, military training, and a gun, after he clocked her, in a matter of seconds completely unarmed, and making sure he ''stayed down.'' This is '''before''' she pulls out her orbs. That very night, during the super-brawl, she was able to field strategies and tactics, on the fly, that greatly surpassed Maxima, a colonel in the armed forces with actual combat experience. The next day, when she's worried about being given a physically humiliating punishment like "a zillion pushups" she admits that she can ''maybe'' do about 5 "girlie" pushups.
* WeaksauceWeakness:
** For Sydney, it's [[http://www.grrlpowercomic.com/archives/589 mittens]]. At least, that's the only aspect of the problem she's recognized; if something cut off or removed her hand, or otherwise rendered her unable to hold the orbs, she would also be screwed. (Though it has been noted that mittens, or being [[IncrediblyLamePun disarmed]], would not render her completely helpless, as she would still be able to use her orbs as bludgeoning tools, since they respond to her mental commands -- a trick she's used more than once.) She also gets a good laugh from the rest of the team when she enthusiastically informs them that she's not bulletproof -- though there may be a touch of FridgeHorror there too, when one considers that she may have actually ''tested'' the red and green orbs for invincibility by having ''guns shot at her.''
** She has also learned that [[http://grrlpowercomic.com/archives/2417 having her hands held shut]] is a weakness - she ''has'' to hold her orbs to use her powers - just touching her fingertips isn't enough.
** She literally ''cannot'' [[ClingyMacGuffin be separated from her orbs by more than ten yards or so]], which means that if the orbs are somehow tethered down or placed in a sealed container that she can't carry with her, she is effectively trapped where they are. This also works in reverse - if she is stuck in one location, the orbs cannot be moved more than ten yards or so away from her.

!!ARCHON supers

[[folder:ARCHON]]

A team of government-sponsored superheroes who recruit Sydney. Tropes applying to the whole team:
----
* CapeBusters: Although the Archon field teams are supers themselves, part of their mandate is to address the antics of superpowered vigilantes -- so the government has them performing this function. Certainly, the basically non-powered Archon leadership are in the business of ''controlling'' supers.
* CivvieSpandex: Most of the team's costumes are along the lines of military jumpsuits.
* CodeName: Each fieldable member has one.
* HeroicBuild: With one aversion, every member of the team is a perfect physical specimen.
* MildlyMilitary: Some aspects of the team are remarkably informal -- such as military discipline administered via atomic wedgie. Possibly [[JustifiedTrope justified]] since standard military disciplinary techniques wouldn't work very well on many of the supers. Two of their stronger members are 'civilian specialists,' even.
* MilitarySuperhero: Archon is provisionally organized under the [=DoD=].
* SecretIdentity: Averted. As members of an official peace-keeping organization, all of the members of Archon have public identities.
* SpandexLatexOrLeather: Systematically averted, from what we can tell. The team's outfits seem to be fairly standard, sensible military-type uniforms. Except [[HornyDevils Dabbler's,]] of course, but she's pretty bad with the whole "military discipline" thing in general.
* SuperheroesStaySingle: Averted. At least two of the team's members are explicitly noted to be dating.
* SuperheroSpeciation: Subverted. While each hero has a different thematic and different main powers, several powers overlap -- there are several flyers, at least two characters with SuperToughness, and a couple with SuperStrength.
* ThemeNaming: Archon has five branches identified so far, all of which have their names start with Arc. Arc-Swat for super-combat, Arc-Light for super-investigations, Arc-Dark for some as-of-yet unexplained purpose (likely superpowered espionage and similar intrigue), Arc-Aegis for security, defense, and containment, and Arc-Sparq, which seems to deal with equipment.

[[folder:Maxima]]
[[quoteright:144:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/colonel_max_1550.jpg]]
!!Maxima [=/=] Maximillia Leander

->''"I miss the Air Force already."''

The commanding officer of the ARCSWAT squad the comic follows. Powerful, beautiful, and a vehement feminist, she serves as something of a straight man to Halo and some of the squad's other, wackier personalities -- much to Maxima's regret.
----
* TheAce: Played with. She is, without question, the strongest of all the ARCHON supers. She's also aware of this and how this could overshadow the rest of the team, so she takes steps to allow them time to shine without stepping in.
* AchillesHeel: Sort of. Her ability to "max out" her stats gives her an incredible amount of versatility, but it does mean she has to sacrifice other stats for the one she is increasing. The easiest way to render her helpless is to hit her with so much power that she is forced to dump everything into armor, rendering her NighInvulnerable but barely superhuman in every other way. Of course, that's not something that just anyone can do, but this weakness is why her ability to shift her stats around is top-secret. Even her teammates don't know about it (except Dabbler, who figured it out on her own).
* AlienBlood: [[http://grrlpowercomic.com/archives/1508 Her blood is blue.]] The author notes that this means that [[http://grrlpowercomic.com/archives/601 her blushes shouldn't be red]], but he had use it anyway because otherwise readers wouldn't realize she was blushing at all.
* BareYourMidriff: Maxima has been shown wearing a belly shirt once or twice. In addition, in one battle the lower part of her shirt and jacket get burned off, creating this effect.
* BerserkButton: Misogyny in any form, ranging from crass pickup lines to a prankster coworker shouting that all women should wear burkas.
* BloodKnight: Maxima enjoys beating up super-powered criminals a little ''too'' much, [[GrinOfAudacity smiling]] often at the thought of [[SmugSmiler showing punks just how powerful she really is]], [[ScareEmStraight while threatening those who would think of breaking the law]], or [[SlasherSmile while delivering said beat-down]]. She is also a brutal CombatPragmatist, although she apparently cannot resist [[SmugSuper grandstanding every now and then]].
* BodyHorror: When her gold skin came in her old normal skin started to come off like a bad sunburn. By the time she's taken to a doctor large patchs of her human skin, including over half her face has been peeled off.
* BoxingLessonsForSuperman: Along with strength, speed, and invulnerability, Maxima has demonstrated competence in a brutally efficient hand-to-hand fighting style. WordOfGod is that she believes in doing things as effectively as possible, and in building the most intimidating possible reputation. It's also a bit of a TakeThat to comics characters -- including Superman, in fact -- who seem to the author to [[UnskilledButStrong rely on raw strength without ever learning how to apply it efficiently]].
* BulletCatch: Maxima's [[http://www.grrlpowercomic.com/archives/253 first demonstrated superpower]] (if you don't count a [[http://www.grrlpowercomic.com/archives/251 pretty hard face]]).
* ChromeChampion: Maxima looks like she's made of gold, but in reality it's a much, much stronger classified material. Though they haven't been able to identify what that material ''is'', so it being classified is kinda a moot point.
* ClosetGeek: Maxima understands more of Sydney's references than she cares to admit.
* ClothingDamage: Averted, her protective shield is a bit above her skin and protects her clothing. To date only two attacks we've seen have both breached this shield and damaged her outfit.
* ColonelBadass: Very, very badass.
* CombatPragmatist:
** Believes in finishing the fight as fast as possible and gaining every advantage, although, being on the side of good, she takes measure of her opponents first to make sure they will survive [[SuperPowerLottery her attack]]. There comes a point where she might consider [[GodzillaThreshold revoking said courtesy]], however.
** This shines through during her fight with Vehemence, [[http://grrlpowercomic.com/archives/1519 where he narrowly escapes]] being made a [[GroinAttack permanent soprano]].
* TheComicallySerious:
** Part of what makes her NotSoAboveItAll (generally caused by Sydney) moments so funny.
--->'''Harem''': [[http://grrlpowercomic.com/archives/370 Have you ever seen someone wind up the Colonel like that?]]\\
'''Arianna''': I am so happy right now.
** Apparently Omar, an Arc-SPARQ engineer, is quite fond of yanking Maxima's chain by hammering on her BerserkButton.
--->'''Omar''': One of these days you'll stop falling for that, Max, until then, the anger album continues to grow.
* ComplainingAboutRescuesTheyDontLike: Played with when she feels [[http://grrlpowercomic.com/archives/1579 conflicted]] about [[spoiler: Dabbler and Sydney using the succubus's hypnotic body to distract Vehemence from killing her.]]
* CovertPervert:
** She enjoys [[http://grrlpowercomic.com/archives/1597 the beefcake as much as other ARC-SWAT gals]].
--->'''Sydney''': We only have a problem if [Hiro]'s found a new shirt to put on.\\
'''Maxima''': ''[[[ActuallyPrettyFunny Snort]]]'' Shh! Sydney, that's inappropriate. [--I'm not disagreeing, mind you.--]
** Later, Maxima has a {{beat}} before replying to the photographer upon learning that [[http://grrlpowercomic.com/archives/1780 her "tasteful nudes" offer was made to Hiro as well]].
* DCupDistress: See SoBeautifulItsACurse. Maxima is specifically annoyed with her bust because it [[http://www.grrlpowercomic.com/archives/320 interferes with drawing and holstering her gun.]]
* FlashStep: Maxima is [[http://www.grrlpowercomic.com/archives/253 fast enough to pull these off.]] [[http://www.grrlpowercomic.com/archives/389 Even against a teleporter.]]
* FlyingBrick: She can fly under her own power and reach supersonic speeds faster than Sydney can say ''[[http://www.grrlpowercomic.com/archives/388 "[bleep] FERRET BALLS!"]]''
* GoodIsNotNice: Maxima makes this ''very'' clear about herself during the press conference. She sees managing the "quavering masses" and making them happy as Ariana's job, hers is simply to keep them safe.
* GoodIsNotSoft: A point Maxima handily makes about Archon at the same time as proving the above trope about herself.
* HandBlast: [[http://www.grrlpowercomic.com/archives/720 So... Apparently, she can do that.]]
* HandCannon: Maxima has superhuman strength and durability. [[http://www.grrlpowercomic.com/archives/316 Her sidearm]] [[http://davebarrack.deviantart.com/gallery/#/d479p0v leverages this.]]
* MeaningfulName: [[WordOfGod According to the writer]], Maxima was so-named due to an ability to redistribute her power into her abilities in order to "max out" one of her abilities if necessary. Though that could just be considered a well-chosen superheroic codename.
* NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast: Suzie Wen happily called her "the goddess of ash."
-->'''Maxima:''' She gets an exclusive interview.
* NoodleIncident: Apparently, she [[http://www.grrlpowercomic.com/archives/675 accidentally destroyed a mosque once.]]
* NotSoAboveItAll:
** Maxima acts like the No-nonsense Military Commander, and for the most part she is, but every now and then we are treated to a glimpse of her less-than-professional side. Such as when she administered [[http://grrlpowercomic.com/archives/386 "military discipline"]] [[http://grrlpowercomic.com/archives/389 via Super-Strength Atomic]] {{Wedgie}}.
** Also, despite her strongly feminist leanings, [[http://grrlpowercomic.com/archives/323 she's not above making a lewd joke]] involving PowerPerversionPotential.
** Sydney's enjoyment of being able to fly [[http://grrlpowercomic.com/archives/1857 prompts Maxima to join in the fun]].
* NotSoStoic: Very few people can get under Maxima's skin, but groping her ass? [[http://grrlpowercomic.com/archives/620 That gets a response.]]
%%* OnlySaneWoman: Maxima often winds up in this role, especially where Sydney is concerned. When Sydney accidentally uppercuts herself into the ceiling, Maxima has [[WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}} Kif]] [[http://www.grrlpowercomic.com/archives/704 tags]] around her groan.
* PopCulturedBadass: Maxima has strong knowledge of pop culture, though she hides it most of the time. In order to get Halo to understand the likely consequences of irresponsible use of superpowers, she uses [[ILetGwenStacyDie the death of Gwen Stacy]] as a metaphor.
* ScaryShinyGlasses: Maxima only evokes this trope occasionally, but then -- [[http://www.grrlpowercomic.com/archives/1142 yikes.]]. Contrast Sydney's glasses, whose lenses are more or less invisible.
* SlasherSmile: Holy ''shit'', [[http://grrlpowercomic.com/archives/1525 Maxima]]!
* SlipknotPonytail:
** Maxima's bun at the press conference. Analyzed by the author, who admitted that he conferred with his wife to find out how unlikely that would be, especially with Maxima's slippery hair and the bun looking perfect until then (which he agreed would require tons of bobby pins). His idea is that Dabbler [[AWizardDidIt gave her a magic scrunchy.]]
** Played in reverse after the battle at the restaurant winds down; she used a [[SuperStrength piece of rebar]] to improvise a hair tie for a ponytail.
* SoBeautifulItsACurse: Maxima is very, very sensitive about her looks -- she feels like people treat her like a golden blow-up doll at times. This feeds into her fervent feminism.
* SuperEmpowering: Gained her powers when a geode she was opening dumped some liquid onto her (and she also swallowed some of it), though the change wasn't instant.
* SuperPowerLottery: Maxima is just plain more powerful than almost anyone. Deus theorizes that this is because she already had latent high-level superpowers when the geode gave her more powers on top of that.
* SuperSpeed: To go with the flying brick package. While her top speed is not currently known, she is apparently faster than Syndey, who tops out at Mach 4.
* SuperToughness: Possibly to the degree of NighInvulnerability -- we know that she can catch bullets.
* UnresolvedSexualTension: Sydney gets this vibe from them when she sees Deus and Maxima meet, even asking about them dating.
* WorldsStrongestWoman: Officially, only two people can come close to Maxima's power, and one of them is already dead. The other's Dabbler, and only because of the wide range of power she can bring to bear. [[spoiler: Vehemence proves to be a third with enough charging.]]

!!Dabbler [=/=] Xuriel Shahara Tantalis

->''"Minimum security... like my pants!"''

Part demon, part alien, cybernetic, psychic, magical, trained in martial arts, and mutant besides, this beguiling creature seems to exist to make off-color jokes and be a thorn in Maxima's side.
----
* AnythingThatMoves: And possibly even some things that ''don't'' move.
-->'''Dabbler:''' I find [[LesYay complex women arousing.]]\\
'''Maxima:''' You find ''stairs'' arousing.
* AnArmAndALeg: Dabbler has a prosthetic arm; she lost the original because, as she states, she isn't quite as good of a fencer as she'd like to believe.
* AttentionDeficitOohShiny: Tends to get too distracted to get good enough at one thing to really excel at it, which she compensates for by using a but-load of skills.
* BadassBoast: When she first draws her sword.
-->'''Dabbler:''' Meet Soul Reaver. I'll try not to sheathe it in your heart.
* BrilliantButLazy: [[http://grrlpowercomic.com/archives/1365 She gets bored when making ammo for her gadgets]], so she usually only has 2-3 shots for anything.
* CharmPerson: One of her tricks.
* CuteMonsterGirl: In her true form she is purple, has hooves, four arms and is still insanely hot.
* {{Cyborg}}: She has a cybernetic arm with a teleporter in it, as well as a cybernetic eye (the left, blue one).
* DarkSkinnedBlonde: In the human glamour we see her using.
* DistractedByTheSexy:
** [[InvokedTrope She can cause it]] on ''[[EvenTheGirlsWantHer everyone]]'', and doesn't even have to put effort into it; it turns out that her whole body is ''literally'' [[http://grrlpowercomic.com/archives/1231 hypnotic]], and she is so hot that no-one ever notices the effect.
** [[spoiler:Sydney later uses this to distract Vehemence from his efforts to kill Maxima]].
* DoesNotLikeShoes: Her true form has hooves and thus does not need them. Even glamored into a human-looking image, she takes them off when she gets a chance.
* EvenTheGirlsWantHer: Due to being a succubus and master illusionist. When her powers are active, all the women in the room are prone to start thinking to themselves "Not a lesbian. Not a lesbian. Not a lesbian..." ([[BiTheWay except Harem]]).
* EveryoneCallsHimBarkeep: Her real name is listed on the cast page, but she just uses Dabbler.
* EyeScream: Similar to how she lost a hand in a duel, she also lost an eye in a different duel. She has a functional prosthetic there, too, and finds no problem taking it out to demonstrate to others.
* ForbiddenFruit: Part of why she's a bit fixated on Maxima - she's one of the few people that's shown zero interest in her.
* FunctionalMagic: She's a sorceress as well as a demon, mutant, alien, et al.
* GadgeteerGenius: As stated by TheRant, she's a better gadgeteer than she is a swordfighter.
* GenkiGirl: While not in Sydney's league, Dabbler is shown to have her Genki moments. She fights Sydney like they're siblings.
* GreenSkinnedSpaceBabe: Well, purple-skinned teal-striped alien-demon-mutant babe. She can use an illusion to appear as one of the original sort. Or, more specifically, [[spoiler:as the general's StarTrek fetish]].
* {{Hammerspace}}: [[http://www.grrlpowercomic.com/archives/1062 Apparently, Dabbler has access]] to [[http://www.grrlpowercomic.com/archives/1346 at least two different versions]] (one via ultra-tech cybernetics, one through magic). Sydney namedrops the trope before rushing in with a cry of "TEACH ME!"
* HeinzHybrid: Part succubus, part doppelgänger, and part something else assumed to be alien.
* HornyDevils: As well as a couple of other things.
* IAmNotLeftHanded: Initially did not use her sword's true power (including its ability to become two separate weapons) against Heavenly Sword because she wanted to win a straight up swordfight. After being forced to admit Heavenly's better than her, she [[CurbStompBattle kicks it up a notch.]]
* IHaveBoobsYouMustObey[=/=]TheHypnotoad: Having distracting boobs is an ''actual superpower'' for Dabbler whose breasts are literally hypnotic.
* JackOfAllTrades: [[MeaningfulName As her nickname implies]]... [[TheRedMage Dabbler]] outright says that she doesn't excel by doing just one thing, and she has demonstrated powerful and versatile magic, highly advanced technology, artifacts of great power, and great speed and strength. There are things she isn't ''that'' good at (as evidenced during her fight against [[SwordBeam Heavenly Sword]]), but that is precisely why she has such a diversity of skillsets and tools.
* JerkassHasAPoint: When she [[http://grrlpowercomic.com/archives/1238 points out]] a new way to interpret a saying that bothered Maxima.
* LockedOutOfTheLoop: The general public and lower-ranked Archon agents are not allowed to know that she is an alien succubus. Sydney was supposed to be in this group, but her truesight led to her figuring out on her own.
* LoveableSexManiac: Comes with the territory of being a succubus. WordOfGod states the author finds it slightly annoying that so many succubus characters don't really act like sex demons, and so pulls as few punches as he can for an SFW comic when it comes to Dabbler's ...healthy sexuality.
* MasterOfIllusion: As a succubus, she can don the appearance of anyone's fetish.
* MismatchedEyes: One blue and one green. Apparently one of them is cybernetic, but she doesn't say which to begin with. [[spoiler:It's the blue one.]]
* MissFanservice: Again, comes with the territory of being a [[HornyDevils succubus]], and she pretty much revels in it.
* MultiArmedAndDangerous: Her nonhuman form has four arms, although the more human illusion she projects around herself only has two. The other, invisible pair still function, though.
* MundaneUtility: She claims that the reason she stays in "battle form" at Archon HQ is because having an extra pair of arms is just too useful. The truth, of course, is that it is her real form.
* NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast: Okay, "Dabbler" is quite mild as superbeing code-names go. However, her ''sword'' is called "Soul Reaver".
* NinjaPirateZombieRobot: [[MeaningfulName Dabbler]] is a part alien part demon cyborg martial artist GadgeteerGenius sorceress.
* PsychicPowers: She possesses several, including a succubus-specific psychic sense for lust, dubbed the "pornosense" by Halo.
* ShapeShifting:
** Via glamor-based illusions -- according to her cast page she lacks a doppelganger's true shapeshifting ability.
** During the scene where she's introduced, while she's in human guise, a pair of invisible hands grope Maxima in one panel. They're probably Dabbler's secondary hands.
* StupidSexyFlanders: Dabbler shows her that she loves [[http://www.grrlpowercomic.com/comics/2012-07-23-GP0100.jpg seducing and confusing the new recruits.]]
* SuperSenses: Her hearing is acute enough to tell that there's someone standing cloaked in a corner by noticing that the sound is absorbed there.
* SuspiciouslySpecificDenial: At the press conference, she notes that she has powers that "look like magic to the untrained eye," a battle form that "looks suspiciously like a four-armed succubus," and that she's from "[[HeinzHybrid all sorts of places]], some [[FireAndBrimstoneHell that you can't even imagine]]."
* {{Troll}}:
** Has a "Make Maxima Say..." Bingo Card, with a betting pool currently up to $250. This is revealed right after she says her sword is "mammary-trapped," [[spoiler: thus getting Maxima to say "booby-trapped" and letting her mark down the "booby" space on her card.]]
** And [[EstablishingCharacterMoment in her first appearance alongside Maxima]], [[http://grrlpowercomic.com/archives/607 she gropes her butt]]. Maxima [[MegatonPunch responds about as well as you can imagine]].
* UnskilledButStrong: While not exactly ''poor'' in any of her main fields, her tendency towards - as her name suggests - dabbling in everything means that she's not as good as she could be. She's lost a hand and an eye (on separate occasions) due to overestimating her own swordsmanship. Page #217 notes that "Heavenly Sword knows Fencing and Kendo. Dabbler knows Hack and Slash."

[[folder:Harem]]
[[quoteright:144:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/harem_3309.jpg]]
!!Harem [=/=] Daphne [=DeShantis=]

->''"You may be the most powerful super in the world, but if you want to crank the pranks, you're on!"''

A teleporting duplicator, Harem's original body doesn't disappear when she teleports, allowing her to have up to five bodies coexisting at one time. Bisexual and something of a tease, she gets on several of the others' nerves.
----
* AchillesHeel:
** Sydney's shield, which is the ''only'' thing she's ever encountered that blocks her teleportation.
** Maxima exploits one using super-speed that Harem didn't really know her networked self had: multiplied impact dominoes. Impact one Harem very hard or a few of Harem with even mild shocks or bumps within a short time frame, and it stacks up on all of them in a cascade effect. Ghost pains can affect the ones that were uninjured for a while, even.
* AlliterativeName: Appropriate to the superhero thing.
* AndThatWouldBeWrong: She probably has [[http://grrlpowercomic.com/archives/1688 the most flexible morals on the team]].
-->'''Harem''': I'd make a great thief [[PragmaticVillainy if I could carry more]].\\
'''Sydney''': Also if your ironclad morals didn't stop you.\\
'''Harem''': That too. Obviously.
* BiTheWay: Flirts with the guys on the team, and is the only female in the room ''not'' thinking "[[StupidSexyFlanders not a lesbian]]" when Dabbler turns up the lust aura.
* CannotKeepASecret: If you tell one of her bodies something or one of her bodies sees something (such as Dabbler's Beholder spell, Sydney's accidental joke about Math's name, or Sydney being [[spoiler: a vegetarian]]), the other four will often ''react to'' that something even if the one watching/listening is keeping it together.
* CordonBleughChef: Unintentionally. Anything any of her bodies eat is tasted by all of them, so if more than one eats at the same time, they can experience some odd flavor combinations. As a rule, they eat separately to avoid this.
* DifferentlyDressedDuplicates: Although all her five copies share one mind, over the years, they've started to differentiate their outfits and even their personalities, despite technically still being one person with one mind.
* FlashStep: Comes with the teleporting territory.
* HiveMind:
** Due to her MesACrowd powers. Hilariously demonstrated [[http://www.grrlpowercomic.com/archives/389 here]] when Maxima gives one Harem a ''painful'' atomic wedgie. All five of her clones react.
** Given a painful callback when a telekinetic seriously injures one's hand and another is seen having to force herself to realize it's not ''her'' body that's been injured.
* TheHyena: Lampshaded by the author, who calls Harem a "gigglepuss".
* InertiaIsACruelMistress: She maintains momentum when she teleports, but relative to her own bodies, and she's learned ways to use this as an attack. If she's falling to the ground she can teleport upside down to fall back up, until the momentum is gone. Or, she can teleport into the air, drop for a bit, and then teleport sideways into an opponent to give them a hell of a dropkick.
* LogicalWeakness: She is unable to take passengers (save for Varia when they've touched), meaning that she cannot help a teammate escape. Also, she gets weaker with every copy of her that exists at a time, and has a strict upper limit to the mass she can normally take with her, which includes her bodies.
* MesACrowd: When Harem teleports, she can leave behind a functional copy of herself. She can create up to five at once, each with different clothing and hair style.
* TheMole: [[spoiler:She's using her powers to play double agent on Archon with Machina Industries because she feels Archon are too full of themselves.]] And because she thinks it's fun. It has been hinted that she may be a [[ReverseMole Triple Agent]], also because it's fun.
* MundaneUtility: She sometimes sends one copy to study something while the others are taking care of other things; she has a lot more skills at her disposal than it first seems.
* NoSell: Is unable to port through Sydney's shield.
* OnlyKnownByTheirNickname: She's called "Harem" so often that Sydney is initially confused when she refers to herself as Daphne.
* OnlySixFaces: Played with. On the one hand, she goes to a great deal of effort to make sure that her bodies look and even act different, despite being identical clones. On the other hand, the appearances she chose are clearly based on other team members, so it can be easy to mix them up if you're not careful.
* PopCulturalOsmosisFailure: She may not be as pop-culture-minded as Maxima; when Sydney does a WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes-style trick [[note]]Dropping her co-hero named [[IncrediblyLamePun Anvil]] on the villain's head[[/note]] in battle and follows it up by doing the Road Runner sound, she comments "I don't understand what you're doing." However, WordOfGod is that she does ''recognize'' the reference; she just doesn't get why Sydney is doing it.
* PowerPerversionPotential: She has [[HiveMind five bodies with one mind]], and calls herself Harem.
* SelfDuplication: When she teleports, she can leave behind a functional copy of herself. She can create up to five at once, each with different clothing and hair style. Interestingly, the more of herself she's got in existence at once, the weaker each one is. Despite this, she prefers to have all five copies at once, as having only one set of eyes and ears makes her feel disoriented and deprived of those missing senses.
* SuperStrength: Capable of this, though she dislikes using it. Her strength is spread across all of her bodies with her max of five equaling out to a physically fit teenager. However, for every body she loses, the remaining ones gain twice as much strength. With just one body she's apparently as strong as ''Anvil''.
* TeleportersAndTransporters:
** See self-duplication above. Her main function so far seems to be fetching the team's arsenal, since most of it is not stuff you can tote around normally.
** Some specifics are given in #207. The overall weight of ''all'' the copies and their clothes is added to what they're carrying for a sort of overall teleporting weight limit (total weight of clones+whatever clones wear and carry cannot exceed X, by Harem's explanation). When they start having to bring in heavy weaponry one considers taking off her boots to try and stay under the limit before deciding she'll just have to "unteleport" for a bit to reduce the load safely.
* WiseBeyondTheirYears: She's actually ''nineteen'', but acts with knowledge on par with Maxima and Arianna (though not necessarily maturity). This is because of her five bodies allow her to basically experience five times as much as normal people. For example, the cast page notes that she usually has one body sleeping and one body studying while the other three do more interesting things.

[[folder:Anvil]]
[[quoteright:144:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/anvil_1917.jpg]]
!!Anvil [=/=] Kenya Cassidy

->''"Watch out, the big guns are here."''

A super-strong, energy-absorbing powerhouse. Anvil is good friends with Maxima and is the only one of the three African-American members of the team we've been introduced to thus far.
----
* BoobsOfSteel: Possibly bigger than Maxima's, and she's no pushover.
-->'''Sydney''': At least you, uh... how do I put this? You don't have to worry about anyone mistaking you for a man.\\
'''Anvil''': [[SpeechBubbleCensoring There is that]].
* DarkSkinnedRedhead: Apparently that's her natural hair color.
* EnergyAbsorption:
** Her primary power -- she can absorb kinetic energy and use it to supplement her own punches. Finally [[http://www.grrlpowercomic.com/archives/1271 demonstrated in #202,]] where a superstrong villain punches her and she absorbs his blows' power, and then sends him flying with a ''nose boop''.
** And an even stronger one [[http://grrlpowercomic.com/archives/1502 here]] - she even warns the others to back the hell off due to just ''how'' strong Vehemence is.
* FeedItWithFire: She's an energy absorber.
* FingerPokeOfDoom: Or rather, [[http://www.grrlpowercomic.com/archives/1271 Nose Boop]] Of Doom.
--> Anvil's other fearsome martial arts techniques: Eskimo Kiss, Cheek Punch, Hair Ruffle.
* {{Gainaxing}}: She noticeably lacks a bounce during [[http://grrlpowercomic.com/archives/2006 morning workout,]] leading to a comment chain questioning whether she can [[MundaneUtility use her kinetic-absorption powers on her own boobs]].
* LongHairIsFeminine: WordOfGod says that Anvil keeps her hair very long due to some insecurity about her femininity, which in turn is due to her height and musculature. She's smart enough to tie her hair up securely if she knows that a fight is coming up, but she doesn't always get the chance -- and Vehemence for one opponent, being a canny fighter who has noticed her absorption power, [[http://grrlpowercomic.com/archives/1493 takes full advantage of this.]]
* MarshmallowHell: Anvil seems somewhat prone to this effect, thanks to her imposing figure, even by the standards of female supers in the setting:
** [[http://www.grrlpowercomic.com/archives/1290 She demonstrates a combat implementation of the trope here.]]
** Later, kind of inverting the trope, [[http://grrlpowercomic.com/archives/2126 Sydney rather walks into things, leading Anvil (and Dabbler) to discuss the subject.]]
* MuscleAngst: Part of why she keeps her hair long, and why she's worried about [[http://grrlpowercomic.com/archives/1810 her upcoming photo shoot]].
-->'''Anvil''': I appreciate that ''you'' appreciate fitness in women, Sydney, but [[NoGuyWantsAnAmazon most people have a much more narrow idea of female beauty]]. The further you stray from it... well, you can probably imagine why I might not be excited about being plastered all over the internet, home of [[{{GIFT}} pseudo bravery via anonymity]].
* NoSell: The biggest advantage to her primary power. She absorbs the full energy from any blow, and is then able to use ''that'' to fuel her SuperStrength.
* RedheadInGreen: She seems to understand the effectiveness of this combination. Her outfit at the steakhouse is primarily green, as is her choker. She's also introduced in a green T-shirt.
* StatuesqueStunner: Easily the tallest member of the team, [[http://grrlpowercomic.com/archives/852 which caused Maxima to lose a side-bet]] when she met Sydney.
* SuperStrength: One of the stronger members of the team.

[[quoteright:143:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/heatwave_145.jpg]]
!!Heatwave [=/=] Brook Falls

->''"You know what I don't get?"''

A ditzy pyrokinetic who's dating Mr. Amorphous.
----
* AnArmAndALeg: She loses her middle toe during the brawl and makes [[http://grrlpowercomic.com/archives/1814 a big deal of it]]. Peggy, who lost a whole leg in Iraq, isn't particularly sympathetic.
* TheDitz: Brook wonders how Maxima could have kissed Mr. Amorphous (Brook's boyfriend) and left lipstick on his face when Maxima doesn't wear lipstick. By the time she meets up with Amorphous again, she's ready to beat Max up -- until it is explained to her that Harem was actually responsible. She then tries to make boiling soda explode on Harem, who teleports out of the way, so Brook only soaks herself. She then threatens Harem by melting the can in her hand ... effectively welding her own hand shut. WordOfGod is that she isn't actually as dumb as she appears, but she tends to process information in a non-standard order.
* {{Expy}}: Her powers and parts of her personality suggest the [[ComicBook/FantasticFour Human Torch]] -- apart from her being a hot, ditzy, redheaded female, of course.
* FieryRedhead: She has both a hot-headed personality and heat powers.
* FlyingFirepower: Flight is a secondary power of hers.
* GlassCannon: Only about as tough as a normal human.
* IronicName: A heat based super-heroine who's real name is Brook (a small stream) (water)Fall.
* SignificantGreenEyedRedhead
* MundaneUtility: Heatwave uses her heat powers to [[http://www.grrlpowercomic.com/archives/413 make popcorn.]]

----
* CaptainObvious: Falls afoul of this [[http://grrlpowercomic.com/archives/1398 when signaling to Jiggawatt what she should do]]. Her response is "Fucking doy", via sign-language.
* EnergyAbsorption: Turns out to be able to absorb sonic attacks and use them to enhance his strength.
* FlyingBrick: It's acknowledged that he comes across as a bit of a "Superman lite".
* MrFanservice: Often looses his shirt, much to the delight of his female teammates.
* PunnyName: Self-evident, really.

[[folder:Math]]
[[quoteright:144:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/math_8095.jpg]]
!!Math [=/=] Mathias (Last name unknown)

->''"I can see your beautiful muscles flexing from a mile away!"''

An incredibly accomplished martial artist -- so much so that his skills skirt the line between training and actual superpowers. He's also a lecherous creep, though usually a lovable one.
----
* ArrogantKungFuGuy: A sympathetic version, but it's clear Math took the job to hopefully find a strong, worthwhile opponent at some point. When he meets one in [[http://grrlpowercomic.com/archives/1333 Jabberwokky]] his response is "FINALLY!"
* ChallengeSeeker: See ArrogantKungFuGuy, above.
* BadassBoast: Oh '''''[[http://grrlpowercomic.com/archives/1311 HELL]]''''' yes.
--> There's no such thing...([[PunchedAcrossTheRoom Punches superhuman across a parking lot]])...as ''just'' human.
* BadassNormal: Math's martial arts prowess is so great that Maxima describes it as "indistinguishable from superpowers"; it certainly allows him to mess with Anvil without getting pummeled senseless, and to tackle several empowered villains simultaneously. He can still be blindsided when he gets [[SuicidalOverconfidence arrogantly overconfident]] or DistractedByTheSexy, however. (Though it's possible that he faked getting surprised by Sydney, and was just hoping for guilt-based CPR.)
* CharlesAtlasSuperpower: Math is the only person on the field team that we know of without superpowers. Instead, he's just a martial artist ... one so skilled that it's impossible to tell the difference between him and someone with superpowers. Actually, this is more or less literally true; he has [[http://www.grrlpowercomic.com/archives/1311 demonstrated the ability to kick a large, stone-bodied supervillain into the air, and then send her flying for yards with a follow-up punch.]]
* LovableSexManiac:
** Math is obviously a martial artist in the style of [[DragonBall Master Roshi]].
--->'''Math''': Sensible. That is my kind of woman. Eh, who am I kidding, they're ''all'' my type.
** Deconstructed when, as Maxima calls him on later, he is so distracted when Jabberwokky's jacket falls open and he gets a peek at her breasts that she could easily take him out.
* ThoseTwoGuys: Ironically, he seems to have this relationship with Harem off duty. He is usually shown alongside her, and she tolerates his LovableSexManiac antics more then the other women on the team.
* {{Troll}}: When he's not busy looking for new and impressive foes to fight, he likes to mess with the other supers, as demonstrated in his fight with Anvil.

!!Mr. Amorphous [=/=] (Civilian Name Unknown)

A super-stretchy member of the Arc-SWAT team. Currently dating Heatwave.
----
* {{Expy}}: To some extent, in terms of abilities, of various famous comic-book rubber men: Mr. Fantastic, Plastic Man, and the Elongated Man. However, he seems to focus less on the stretching as such and more on the benefits control of his body gives him -- strength, toughness, disguise, and so on.
* PowerPerversionPotential: In the words of Maxima...
-->'''Maxima''': Brook's a lucky girl, isn't she?
* RubberMan: His primary superpower.
* ShapeShifting: Control of his bodily form extends to disguise abilities.
* SuperStrength: Apparently a function of his control of his body's form and density.

!!Achilles [=/=] Harold (Last name unknown)

->''"You can only drive a car off a plane into an ammo dump so many times before it gets boring."''

An utterly invulnerable man (to the extent that he takes calming swims in active volcanoes and knocks missiles out of the air with his face). Personality-wise, Achilles is somewhat stuck in the '80s, though it's uncertain whether that's just what he's like or if it's a side-effect of his powers.
----
* TheAgeless: Apparently part of his invulnerability--nothing can harm him, not even time.
* BoringButPractical: He gets the worst reception at the power demonstration after headbutting a tank.
-->'''AltText''': No one appreciates a good defense.
* ClothingDamage: After hanging out in an explosion, he gets mad that the marshmallows in his pocket melted, ruining his jacket. Then we see that the entire back of his outfit is gone. WordOfGod is that he goes through clothes like TheIncredibleHulk does, only without transforming.
* DeusExitMachina: During the first big fight, he quickly gets trapped under the rubble of the restaurant, so he is out of the fight when Vehemence shows up. His power would have been extremely useful against Vehemence, especially if he was immune to [[spoiler:his violence aura]].
* DidNotThinkThisThrough: Pulls off a pretty good plan by blocking Heavenly Sword's energy blade with his eyeball, counting on the shock of seeing that making her drop the sword. He then ends up picked up by the villainess and thrown into a wall, which she then drops on him, taking him out of the fight.
* DiscoDan: Still dresses, and acts, like it's the 1980's. May have something to do with how he's [[OlderThanHeLooks actually in his 50's,]] and going through some kind of mid-life crisis.
* EyeScream: Since he's invulnerable, he can {{invoke|dTrope}} this trope to squick out the person he's fighting.
-->'''Heavenly Sword:''' Euugh! Why would you block a sword with your ''eye!?''\\
'''Achilles:''' [[BatmanGambit To get you to drop it]], of course!
* FastballSpecial: He can be utilized as a human bullet by his stronger teammates.
* FightsLikeANormal: He's invulnerable, but not really that much more powerful than a normal human otherwise.
* LogicalWeakness: His invulnerability is his only real power, and he's completely taken out of the fight when he's trapped under rubble.
* MeaningfulName: Well, it's a superheroic codename, but Achilles is obviously named for [[AchillesHeel Achilles, minus the heel]].
* NighInvulnerable:
** He's described as having "Proper, aggravating invincibility." He's shrugged off attacks that can destroy matter ''on the subatomic level.''
** He once stopped a cruise missile by headbutting it, and "didn't feel" the resulting explosion.
** He's the only one other than Maxima to hang out in the massive explosion she caused.
** His eyeball can block an energy blade.
* NoSell: As of yet, nothing has been able to get past his powers.
* OlderThanTheyLook: As part of being TheAgeless. He's a little over fifty, but looks to be in his mid-twenties.
* RequiredSecondaryPowers: Something of an inversion, in that he doesn't have full SuperStrength but he is functionally somewhat stronger than a normal human because his invulnerability means he can't injure himself by straining too hard.
* StockScream: Lets loose the [[WesternAnimation/{{Goofy}} Goofy Holler]] when punched through a roof.
* StoneWall: He's NighInvulnerable minus the nigh. The problem being, he's otherwise basically just a normal person (albeit 1.5 times as strong as most, since he doesn't have to worry about tearing muscles or anything).
* YouFightLikeACow: His unofficial "Power".

[[quoteright:143:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/jiggawatt_5851.jpg]]
!!Jiggawatt [=/=] (Civilian Name Unknown)

A lightning- oriented super; she can create lightning, control lightning, and turn into lightning, allowing her rapid travel. She seems to have a mildly goofy sense of humor combined with a readiness to do the job she's paid for.
----
* {{Electric Black G|uy}}al: Insofar as she manifests the trope, she's a slightly unusual {{gender flip}}ped version. Actually, her specific appearance and lightning-hurling combat style might make her a bit more like a visual {{Expy}} of Storm of the ComicBook/XMen, although when the writer realized this, he changed her hair color retroactively from white to gold, to reduce the similarity.
* HandBlast: Her basic offensive power; point at people and zap them with lightning. She's fast enough to knock incoming thrown objects out of the air with a reflex defensive blast.
* RideTheLightning: How she gets around when she needs to be quick. Her most powerful offensive option is to turn into lightning and throw herself at an opponent.
* SassyBlackWoman: Jiggawatt tends this way in the last few panels of [[http://grrlpowercomic.com/archives/1398 this strip]].
* ShockAndAwe: Her schtick -- lightning is her power.
* SpellMyNameWithAnS: According to the cast page, she specifically spells her name this way (instead of Gigawatt) because she wants it spelled like [[Film/BackToTheFuture Doc Brown said it]].
* SteelEarDrums: Averted. She's rendered temporarily deaf after being caught in a large explosion, and even after being treated by a doctor with healing powers, she still has some permanent hearing loss.
* UnwittingInstigatorOfDoom: Nearly turns into this during the post-press conference battle. Seems her powers also include the ability to generate positrons (''i.e.'' antimatter), and doing so naturally creates a large amount of gamma radiation. Dabbler reacted with suitable panic to both neutralize what radiation had already been produced as well as discourage Jiggawatt from continuing to use her powers in that fashion.

----

* EmbarrassingNickname:
** Ren is hoping to avoid an annoying superhero moniker, like "the Black Hulk" (or as Sydney suggests, "the Blulk").
** There's also, to an extent, his actual nickname, "Ren." No one is quite sure how he got it, but it's stuck.

->''"Hiya Halo, I saw footage of you at the cah pahk battle last night, I'm wicked jealous."''

A Bostonian Aztec-American member of the team, again in the same "class" as Sydney, with a gestalt ability that changes based on who she is touching.
----
* UsefulNotes/AmericanAccents: Although she's Aztec by heritage, she grew up around Boston, and has an accent to match. This threw Halo the moment she started talking.
* AnIcePerson: Her power from touching Heatwave.
* DisappearedDad: When Sydney learns that Xochitl never knew her father, [[http://grrlpowercomic.com/archives/1873 she immediately sets up a betting pool]]. 9:1 [[HumanMomNonhumanDad alien father]], 20:1 alien father and he's a space emperor, making her a space princess. 18:1 a nymph, 15:1 a wizard, 20:1 Quetzacoatl or some other god.
* HollywoodMagnetism: The power she gets from Jiggawatt is magnetism, which she uses to help rebuild the overpass.
* HowDoIShootWeb: Just because she gets a power doesn't mean she knows what it is and the specifics of its function.
* LamarckWasRight: If not with her and her DisappearedDad, the powers she gets from people tend to share themes within families.
* LogicalWeakness: She can't use her powers without touching someone (though Halo wonders if it's possible that she could activate her powers with blood samples and the like), so she can't fight solo, especially since her attacks are useless on the people she gets them from (which thankfully means that the person she touches is immune to any HowDoIShootWeb mishaps).
* MagicAIsMagicA: She always gets the same power from a person.
* MeaningfulName:
** She's called Varia because she has a "gestalt power," which changes depending on what person she's in physical contact with. There's little in the way of an apparent pattern for her powers, so she has theoretically as many powers as there are people on Earth.
** Her real name is meaningful as well. Xochiquetzal was an Aztec goddess of fertility, beauty and strength, while Xochitl is the Aztec word for "flower." However, in a subversion of this trope, it has exactly zilch to do with her powers.
** [[invoked]] WordOfGod says the subversion is a bit of a jab at characters that take it kinda to the point where suspension of disbelief starts to fail.
* MissingDad: She never knew her father, and all her mother will say is that he was full-blooded Aztec. The second Sydney finds this out, she sets up a betting pool for everything from pagan god to mad scientist who built Varia in a lab.
-->'''Varia:''' I get a cut, right?\\
'''Sydney:''' Ten percent.\\
'''Varia:''' Twenty-five or no deal.\\
'''Sydney:''' Fine. Unless it's the star princess one and you wind up with a currency with your face on it.
* NewPowersAsThePlotDemands: Sort of.
** The powers she manifests are dependent on who she's just made physical contact with, so as long as she keeps the right people around, she can have as many powers as the situation requires.
** In particular, when she touches people who also have superpowers, the powers she manifests ''tend'' to be related to that person's own powers. She can "ride along" with Harem, for example, while touching [[PlayingWithFire Heatwave]] gave her ice powers in contrast.
** The powers she gains from various people also seem to be similar amongst blood relatives -- which means that she can sometimes identify such relationships by experimentation. One panel shows her telling a small Chinese girl that she is adopted.
--->'''Girl:''' Duh, my parents are white.
** Notably, though, she gets ''no'' powers from touching Maxima. They're not sure why, but Maxima does have very unusual (and tough) skin.
** Touching Sydney doesn't give her any obvious powers, but neither notices immediately that Sydney's halo of orbs extends to revolve around Varia as well. What this means remains to be seen.
* NoSell: The powers she gains from touching a person don't affect them.
* OverlyLongName: Her real name, Xochitl Xochiquetzal, is a mouthful for everyone but her.
* RequiredSecondaryPowers: The people she touches to get powers are immune to said powers, preventing any problems that might occur from the manifestation.
* StevenUlyssesPerhero: A jab at this kind of thing in comics.
* TakeThat: As mentioned above, she's a jab at characters that take {{Meaningful Name}}s to the point where suspension of disbelief starts to falter.

[[folder:Vance]]

!!Vance


A new recruit for ARCHON, in the same "class" as Sydney. Claims to be a colony of superpowered spiders with a HiveMind, may just be a {{Troll}}.
----
* AmbiguouslyHuman: He claims to be a MobileSuitHuman wearing superpowered colony of spiders with a HiveMind, but he may just be hazing Sydney. WordOfGod is whether or not that's true is undecided until it's officially put into the comic.
* CreepyGood: A HiveMind of sentient spiders (if his story is true), but a good guy (if a bit of a {{Troll}}.
* HiveMind: Claims to be a colony of spiders with a collective intelligence, which he directly compares to the Borg.
* MobileSuitHuman: Claims that his "body" is one of these that's made out of special polymers that his spiders inhabit.
* {{Troll}}: He hazes Sydney by telling her that he is a MobileSuitHuman HiveMind of intelligent, superpowered spiders. Whether or not it's true, or if he's just lying, is ambiguous.
* TheWormThatWalks: Claims to be a mass of spiders in reality. He may just be messing with Sydney.

[[folder:Pixel Lucado]]

!!Pixel Lucado


An Arc-Light special agent with the investigation branch who has some "expertise with artifacts".
----
* BadassAdorable: She's only slightly taller than Sydney and she looks like an anime character, but to be a member of ARCON then by definition you qualify as a badass.
* BoobsOfSteel: Averted for Pixel, which makes her rather unusual among supers. [[spoiler: Played straight when in her were-cat form.]]
* BrutalHonesty: Flat-out states that people have told her that Halo is weird.
* DoesNotLikeShoes: Only seen wearing flip flops, and will kick them off to go barefoot when indoors. [[spoiler:This makes more sense after she's revealed to be a were-jaguar: when she shifts her feet become digitigrade like a cat's and would prevent her from wearing shoes, so it would be convenient for her to wear something easy to remove.]]
* {{Invisibility}}: [[spoiler:Can turn invisible in full-jaguar mode]].
* KinkySpanking: Apparently she's into being spanked.
* LaserBlade: [[spoiler:Her power as a super is laser-claws in her hybrid and animal forms]].
* NeverHeardThatOneBefore: Said pretty much word for word to Harem after [[spoiler: the latter jokes about her being a [[Film/ThePinkPanther panther]] upon finding out she's a pink were-jaguar]].
* OlderThanTheyLook: Pixel looks like a ten-year-old, but WordOfGod is that that's an unintentional side-effect of her art style.
* [[spoiler: OurWerebeastsAreDifferent]]: [[spoiler: Unbeknownst to most of ARCHON, Pixel is a werecat, specifically a were-jaguar, almost doubling in height (and growing in [[BreastExpansion other ways]]) when transformed. Plus has laser claws]]
* TheRival: Downplayed, but Sydney is not happy at finding someone who channels the same aesthetic that Sydney does. Pixel doesn't seem to have a problem with it, though, or even to have noticed.
* SupernaturalGoldEyes: Turns from blue-green to gold when [[spoiler: in her were-cat form.]]
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair: Her hair is bubblegum pink, which contributes to her adorable look. [[spoiler: In were-jaguar form she has pink fur.]]

[[folder:Peggy]]
[[quoteright:144:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/peggy_3074.jpg]]
!!Peggy

->''"Superpowers are like vegans--they can't ''wait'' to tell you about them."''

A sniper and helicopter pilot, and the only active-duty member of ARCHON we meet who doesn't have superpowers or a close approximation thereto.
----
* AnArmAndALeg: Lost part of a leg in combat.
* BadassNormal: Peggy is clearly very good at what she does, and feels perfectly able to work with a team of supers.
* BiTheWay: She offhandedly explains that she's more attracted to people rather than genders, after Sydney initially picks up a lesbian vibe off her looks, then notices her [[EatingTheEyeCandy enjoying]] the parade of shirtless superguys.
* BlastingItOutOfTheirHands: When told to try and avoid fatalities in a large-scale combat, Peggy can always resort to, say, shooting a sword out of an opponent's hands.
* FriendlySniper: Evidently her primary function when the team gets into fights.
* GenreSavvy: Her "supers are like vegans, they can't wait to tell you all about [their powers]" speech was proven correct by the end of the page. It's later proven right ''again'' during the team's first battle where many of the villains do in fact boast or show off their powers -- though some have to be prompted by Sydney.
* HandicappedBadass: She's a military sniper who lost her leg in action -- but none of her badassitude.
* ImprobableAimingSkills: While not as cinematic as some, she ''does'' shoot a sword out of somebody's hands, at sniping ranges, in the middle of a fight.
* PunnyName: She's got a prosthetic leg. And her name is Peggy. Har har. Sydney [[OpenMouthInsertFoot inserts]] ''[[OpenMouthInsertFoot several]]'' feet [[http://grrlpowercomic.com/archives/925 into her mouth]] when trying to IgnoreTheDisability.
* TeamNormal: The only member of the field team with no powers of any kind. Even Math has his CharlesAtlasSuperpower.

[[folder:Arianna]]
[[quoteright:144:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/arianna_8411.jpg]]
!!Arianna

->''"Yes... twist on my finger! MUAHAHAHA!"''

The PR representative and legal counsel for ARCHON. Enjoys tweaking Maxima and manipulating the press.
----
* AmoralAttorney: Largely averted so far. She points out she can't screw Sydney over with the Archon contract because then she'd have to sue herself later. And after confirming that a waitress at the steakhouse the villains just wrecked can definitely sue said villains for damages, she offers to help in doing so with much enthusiasm -- although admittedly that fits with some of her devious ideas about making life difficult for supervillains.
* TheChessmaster: Arianna is seen playing Maxima like a fiddle for her amusement and the advancement of her organization as a bonus. Further events may eventually upgrade this status to MagnificentBastard. However, Max seems to be manipulating right back at her...
* LargeHam: While she's mostly one of the sanest characters around, her manic moments jump headfirst into full-on ham territory, usually with some of the most exaggerated expression in the comic.
* TheMerch: Invoked in universe; part of her job as PR consultant is to push merchandise. She loves Sydney's orbs because it means "collect them all!", and hated Maxima's demonstration because they played havoc with her sales projections.
* NotMeThisTime: Since she arranged the fake bank heist, Maxima apparently assumes that Arianna may also have staged the first supervillain attack. In a wordless conversation of expressions and gestures across the room, Ariana emphatically insists otherwise.
* NotSoAboveItAll: While she normally leans more towards an OnlySaneWoman, she's had her moments.
* OnlySaneWoman: As a pragmatic (and manipulative) non-powered lawyer with PR responsibilities towards a team of supers, Arianna tends towards this trope. Though she's had one or two manic moments.

!!General Faulk

->''"Don't bother imagining us all in our underwear, because we're all dead sexy."''

The officer in charge of ARCHON.
----
* ClosetGeek: Dabbler reads his fantasy and changes into an [[spoiler:[[Series/StarTrekTheOriginalSeries Orion Slave Girl]]]]. There are other hints too.
* EveryoneCallsHimBarkeep: Well, it's not too unusual to refer to the one general present as "the General."
* GlassesPull: For especially [[http://www.grrlpowercomic.com/archives/479 dramatic moments.]]
* RealMenWearPink: Apparently the General is a fan of ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePony'', ''Anime/{{Pokemon}}'' and ''Franchise/SailorMoon''. Though that might just be because he has grandkids.
* TheWonka:
** The General is shaping up to be this. The fact that his uniform seems to be a shade of purple helps.
** [[http://www.grrlpowercomic.com/archives/468 Here's a good example of his thought process.]]

->''"It would be a shame if your bank accounts mysteriously disappeared."''

The technical expert at ARCHON. A self-avowed nerd with a bit of a complex about dealing with beautiful women (which makes working with superheroines an ... interesting prospect).
----
* CannotTalkToWomen: The incredibly pretty ones, anyway. He seems okay with Sydney. Also with Maxima, likely because she doesn't flaunt when having discussions with him.
* {{Geek}}: Actually, Leon proclaims himself to be both a geek and a {{Nerd}}, and Sydney has checked him out and confirmed this. However, their use of the latter term doesn't really accord with the definition used on this site.
* HollywoodHacking: He [[http://www.grrlpowercomic.com/archives/327 mercilessly skewers it]] in one memorable exchange.
* HackerCave: His office in Archon headquarters is a fairly clean, well-lit example. We see at least four monitors and several cans of soda.
* OneHeadTaller: A good deal taller than Sydney, who a few seconds after noting this wonders how "Leon Scoville" sounds.

A consultant with ARCHON, Zephan is a retired adventurer with years of experience studying the odder parts of the world.
----
* ActuallyPrettyFunny: Sydney apologizes to him after making a quip about getting the orbs in an old Chinese relic shop. He simply smiles and jokes back that they always have the best stuff there.
* CollectorOfTheStrange: As a scholar of the unusual, he's accumulated bits and baubles, as well as knowledge.
* CoolOldGuy: Totally fine with Sydney's quip about Asian antique shops and generally seems like a laid-back and funny guy.
* CovertPervert: After [[HornyDevils Dabbler's entrance]], he ([[BiTheWay and Harem]]) is the only one entertaining the thought.

Actually a novice magician, but evidently not at a level to take part in combat; she works on the support side at ARCHON. However, she has enough competence to cast a spell that keeps herself and two others from being noticed by a large group of supervillains in the middle of a fight scene.
----
* FunctionalMagic: She's basically an [[TrainingTheGiftOfMagic apprentice mage]].
* MundaneUtility: Her magic scan spell also has weather info and a Twitter feed.

!!Aurelius Shrapnell

A financial adviser that helps the Archon supes manage their ''huge'' paychecks.
----
* AwesomeMcCoolName: Does this ''really'' need to be stated?
* MeaningfulName: Like Varia, his name is a subversion of this, despite Sydney originally thinking it had something to do with his nonexistent powers. That being said, his name translates roughly to "gold dust," which is a reasonable name for a financial advisor.

A team of government-sponsored superheroes who recruit Sydney. Tropes applying to the whole team:



* LockedOutOfTheLoop: Sydney failed to tell him about her powers. Of course, she didn't tell ''anyone'' at first, but since he was catching up on ''ComicBook/{{Saga}}'' instead of watching TV when the press conference and later the supervillain fight hit the national news, he came into work the next day still ignorant of what had happened, including Sydney's involvement. It looked like he was literally the last person in the comic's cast to find out about Sydney's powers (except that Olivia came in later that morning, and it turned out that she'd turned off her 'phone while doing some homework and not seen the morning news either).
* StraightMan: He seems to be the more reasonable, business-minded member of the partnership, and he handled the revelation of Sydney's powers with an impressive degree of calm.

* SuperheroesStaySingle: Averted. At least two of the team's members are explicitly noted to be dating.
* SuperheroSpeciation: Subverted. While each hero has a different thematic

* HeartIsAnAwesomePower: Being a werehare doesn't seem that great, but then you realize those jumping muscles are great at delivering kicks.

[[/folder]]

[[folder:Krona]]
A woman with a unique "programming" style of magic.
----
* CowardlyLion: Claims to be not very brave, but still keeps her cool.
* CripplingOverspecialization: Her magic works by accessing the "source code" of items and allowing her to manipulate them. This makes it much easier for her to alter existing items but much harder to create things from scratch.
* EverythingIsOnline: A magical equivalent. With how her magic works she can "hack" just about anything.
* GogglesDoNothing: She wears what seems to be lab goggles.
* HeroOfAnotherStory: She's a member of the Semper Vigilantis, the Twilight Council's version of ARCHON.
* InstantRunes: Ones that resemble soundboards and computer screens. She essentially uses them as magical touchscreens for directing her powers.

'''Krona:''' I bought you another half-hour. It's like hitting the "snooze" button.

* {{Troll}}: She changes Gunnhildr's underwear into a thong to give her a wedgie.
* TrueSight: Of a sort. After Sydney gains another level up for her spheres, she can apparently see [[http://grrlpowercomic.com/archives/2447 WAY more]] than the others can.
-->'''Krona''': '''AHHHH!''' The Deep Code! The Universe laid bare! God's dicebag, tumbling across the velvety tabletop of space and time!
* WrongContextMagic: Her abilities are magical in natures, but she is ''not'' a normal mage or a super. In fact, her abilities are apparently unique enough to warrant her her own faction on the Council, consisting of just her.

* Really700YearsOld: She's dresses like a Viking, so she's definitely been around for a while.
* VillainWithGoodPublicity: Not her, but something she's aware of. Part of her motivation to fighting the Mannekillers alongside ARCHON was to get some good publicity for vampires.

[[folder:Ravven]]
A winged figure who leads a mercenary force of supernatural beings. She reports to Ingsol on matters of security but it's clear that he's not her only employer.

* LackOfEmpathy: She's more concerned with the potential work she can get after the fall of the Sigils than the massive casualty rates.
* OnlyInItForTheMoney: She doesn't care about a massive crisis that will surely affect her and her organization because she hasn't been paid to.
* PointyEars: She has them.
* PrivateMilitaryContractors: She's a sellsword and leads a group of similar beings.
* WingedHumanoid: She has a pair of black feathered wings.
* XRayVision: An inverted version, the bones of her wings can be seen glowing beneath her flesh when she flies.

!!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.

[[/folder]]

[[folder:Tom]]
A man with the power to refill small amounts of liquid and a historian for the Twilight Council.
----
* CasualKink: He's pretty open about his masochism, particularly being used as a bloodbag by vampires.
* CutLexLuthorACheck: As Sydney notes, there are more profitable uses for his power.
* HeartIsAnAwesomePower: He can replenish his own blood extremely rapidly, something that makes his invaluable to vampires.
* WastefulWishing: He got his power from a genie. Granted, he was drunk at the time.

* SpellBook: Her book of holding.
* WhiteMage: Her book contains mana potions and antidotes for healing.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Krona]]
A woman with a unique "programming" style of magic.
----
* CowardlyLion: Claims to be not very brave, but still keeps her cool.
* CripplingOverspecialization: Her magic works by accessing the "source code" of items and allowing her to manipulate them. This makes it much easier for her to alter existing items but much harder to create things from scratch.
* EverythingIsOnline: A magical equivalent. With how her magic works she can "hack" just about anything.
* GogglesDoNothing: She wears what seems to be lab goggles.
* HeroOfAnotherStory: She's a member of the Semper Vigilantis, the Twilight Council's version of ARCHON.
* InstantRunes: Ones that resemble soundboards and computer screens. She essentially uses them as magical touchscreens for directing her powers.
* RewritingReality: Can alter existing objects with greater ease than most mages, like disarming grenades from a distance. She can hack into and modify just about ''anything'', including people. [[http://grrlpowercomic.com/archives/2384 One strip]] has her shutting down Sydney's PottyEmergency.
-->'''Sydney:''' Did you just hack my ''bladder?!''\\
'''Krona:''' I bought you another half-hour. It's like hitting the "snooze" button.
* SaveScumming: [[spoiler:Can use her powers to do this in real life. And then it turns out not work exactly how she thought, and she resolves to [[OhCrap stop doing high-level alterations to reality when she doesn't understand the consequences]]]].
* SufficientlyAdvancedMagic: She uses magic, but it has a distinct technological aesthetic to it.
* {{Troll}}: She changes Gunnhildr's underwear into a thong to give her a wedgie.
* TrueSight: Of a sort. After Sydney gains another level up for her spheres, she can apparently see [[http://grrlpowercomic.com/archives/2447 WAY more]] than the others can.
-->'''Krona''': '''AHHHH!''' The Deep Code! The Universe laid bare! God's dicebag, tumbling across the velvety tabletop of space and time!
* WrongContextMagic: Her abilities are magical in natures, but she is ''not'' a normal mage or a super. In fact, her abilities are apparently unique enough to warrant her her own faction on the Council, consisting of just her.
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair: She changed her default hair color to blue. She's later seen changing it into a full rainbow.

[[folder:Gunhildr]]
A vampire affiliated with Azilus.
----
* ActionGirl: She's had years of experience in battle and isn't afraid to get a few more.
* BloodKnight: She could have avoided the entire Mannekiller fight without risk, but fighting seemed more fun.
* CleavageWindow: A relatively small diamond shaped one.
* MeaningfulName: "Gunn" means "war" and "Hildr" means "battle", though together it means "battle maiden". Lampshaded by Sydney, who mentions that while it's a pretty cool name it's also a reflection of the unfortunate times she was born into.
* Really700YearsOld: She's dresses like a Viking, so she's definitely been around for a while.
* VillainWithGoodPublicity: Not her, but something she's aware of. Part of her motivation to fighting the Mannekillers alongside ARCHON was to get some good publicity for vampires.

[[folder:Ravven]]
A winged figure who leads a mercenary force of supernatural beings. She reports to Ingsol on matters of security but it's clear that he's not her only employer.
----
* DarkIsNotEvil: She has black wings and wears dark clothing but she's not evil. Disinterested in the suffering of others, sure, but not evil.
* LackOfEmpathy: She's more concerned with the potential work she can get after the fall of the Sigils than the massive casualty rates.
* OnlyInItForTheMoney: She doesn't care about a massive crisis that will surely affect her and her organization because she hasn't been paid to.
* PointyEars: She has them.
* PrivateMilitaryContractors: She's a sellsword and leads a group of similar beings.
* WingedHumanoid: She has a pair of black feathered wings.
* XRayVision: An inverted version, the bones of her wings can be seen glowing beneath her flesh when she flies.

[[folder:For Whom the Death Tolls]]
!! For Whom the Death Tolls ("Death Toll")
[[quoteright:210:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/for_whom_the_death_tolls_-_grrl_power_3678.jpg]]
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. His powers initially appear to involve EnergyAbsorption, but actually, it's more than that.
----
* 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.
* AmbiguouslyEvil: [[spoiler: Due to Vehemence's aggro aura it's hard to say how much of what he did was of his own volition.]]
* 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).
* CripplingOverspecialization: [[spoiler: His power gives him whatever power he needs to counter an attack. The power granted is usually strong enough to take out his opponent, but while that power manifests he can't gain another.]]
* 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 [[spoiler: doesn't manifest unless he's attacked, so not attacking him essentially renders him powerless]].
** [[spoiler: By its nature, it gives him ''any'' power he needs. The key here is that "any" means a single power specifically to counter the attack. Avert MookChivalry and hit him with enough varied attacks that any one power can't counter them all and he goes down.]]
* 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.
* SkeletonsInTheCoatCloset: He wears a skull mask.

----
* AmbiguouslyEvil: [[spoiler: Due to Vehemence's aggro aura it's hard to say how much of what she did was of her own volition.]]
* {{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.
* CleavageWindow: [[http://www.grrlpowercomic.com/archives/1343 Halo warns her]] that she'll be tagged as "Keyhole" if she doesn't introduce herself properly during her first appearance (even though it's a fight scene).
* ExplainingYourPowersToTheEnemy: Sydney gets her to explain her SwordBeam power by invoking "Silver Age rules".
* HeartIsAnAwesomePower: The author comments [[http://grrlpowercomic.com/archives/1375 here]] that she has a lot of potential for a seemingly limited power.
* 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.

* BeamSpam: With six orbs she can put out a good volume of firepower.
* {{Flight}}: Another use for her orbs.
* ForceField: She can create limited energy shields by projecting them between her orbs, with the orbs serving as the corners. This limits the flexibility of the shapes she can create but they are still fairly durable.
* GlassCannon: Her lasers hit hard but she's just as squishy as a normal human.
* LaserCutter: The beams made by her orbs can easily shear through entire buildings.

* BiTheWay: When she gets seduced by Dabbler ([[EvenTheGirlsWantHer which by itself doesn't say anything about her sexuality]]) she mentions being into women at parties.
* IHaveBoobsYouMustObey: She only wears see-through fishnet under her jacket and uses this to distract Math long enough to get some hits through his defenses.
* TheKlutz: Introduces herself by slipping on a piece of glass and falling flat on her ass.
* SupernaturalMartialArts: She can enhance her very significant skill by invoking various "styles", some of them animal-themed, which grant her various combinations of speed, striking power, and innate resistance to damage.

[[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.]]
* TheAce: To a degree. He's one of only three people to ever fight Maxima to a standstill, even when she had one of the other two and a large group of other supers on her side. On the other hand, the nature of his powers means that he's only this powerful under certain circumstances.
* 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]].
** He also uses the vast amount of power he gains from the super-brawl at the restaurant to explore the limits of what can be achieved from his power, and theorizes mid-fight about possible strengths and weaknesses that the heroes (Anvil and Maxima in particular) might possess in reaction to his and others' own abilities.
* 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, and then only because she's willing and able to kill him if needed.
* 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:The Arab]]
A Middle Eastern super who once clashed with Maxima, ending in his supposed death.
----
* 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."
* NoNameGiven: Hence the uncreative moniker.
* NotQuiteDead: Maxima claimed he was dead, though she had her own doubts. The exact method of his survival is as of yet unknown.

!!Supernatural Threats
[[folder:Mannekillers]]
[[quoteright:314:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/mannekiller.PNG]]
Supernaturally animated mannequins sent to kill the Twilight Council and destroy the Sigils..
----
* ActionBomb: They're equipped with mana voids, allowing them to drain magical energy from anything that tries to use magic on them, even non-aggressively, and repurpose it into a massive explosion. The yield is apparently enough to breach Maxima's shield.
* AllYourPowersCombined: [[spoiler: The composite mannekiller has all the weapons of its component beings.]]
* {{Antimagic}}: One of their weapons is a blade that counters magic.
* BloodyHandprint: Each has one on their face made from vampire blood. Besides looking scary, they serve the practical purpose of providing the blood required to animate them.
* BloodMagic: Each contains a fragment of a blooddrinker sword that serves as their brain and power source.
* TheBrute: One of them is noticeably larger than the others and has a knight's helmet for a head.
* DetachmentCombat: Their limbs can function independently.
* {{Golem}}: Whatever superficial differences there may be, they're considered to be golems.
* ImmuneToBullets: They take minor damage but it doesn't affect them what with their lack of vital organs, pain receptors, or other meaty bits.
* MageKiller: Not just mages, but several other kinds if supernatural beings as well.
* MugglesDoItBetter: Their opening attack was a grenade packed with silver buckshot, iron, and [[KillItWithFire white phosphorus]].
* MultiArmedAndDangerous: [[spoiler: The composite mannekiller.]]
* NoSell: Bullets don't do anything more than cosmetic damage.
* OneWingedAngel: [[spoiler: With enough blood to fuel the sword fragments, the largest mannekiller can incorporate the parts of the others into a single composite entity.]]
* PoisonedWeapons: Retractable claws with paralyzing neurotoxin.
* PullingThemselvesTogether: Allowing them to negate most damage.
* WhatMeasureIsANonHuman: Icon rules them nonsapient, permitting lethal force.
* WolverineClaws: One of their many weapons.
* YourHeadAsplode: [[spoiler: How Maxima kills the composite mannekiller.]]
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Sciona]]
An artificer and blood mage who wants to destroy the Sigils and reveal the supernatural to the greater world.
----
* BadassBookworm: She works primarily through magic, but she's since taken over the body of a much larger and stronger creature.
* BadBoss: She drains the blood of her vampire underling in order to fuel her constructs.
* BlackEyesOfEvil: Her sclera are pitch black.
* BloodMagic: She's skilled enough that she topped the Council's suspect list for creating the Mannekillers, even when presumed dead. She also has a tendency to use vampire blood for her creations in order to give them an extra kick.
* BodyHorror: Her head was cut in half at the jaw, leaving her without a lower jaw or anything below the neck. The top half of her head was then attached to a troll who was maimed in the same way in order to make room for her.
* CreepyBlueEyes: The iris and pupil of her eyes are solid blue.
* HealingFactor: Sydney uses her orbs to attack her, but a broken bone only annoys her due to her having troll blood.
* NotQuiteDead: She was assumed dead after having most of her head cut off. While not in the best condition, she still survived.
* OffWithHisHead: Well, half of it anyways.
* PointyEars: Whatever she is she has pointed ears.
* UndeathlyPallor: Her skin is stark white, presumably because of whatever species she is.
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair: She has blue hair so pale it's nearly white.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Zvonamir]]
[[quoteright:295:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/zvonamir.PNG]]
A vampire first seen in the gallery of the Council since revealed to be a servant of Sciona.
----
* TheMole: For Sciona.
* MonsterProgenitor: He's spawned many vampires, though most of those were to supply Sciona with a continuous source of vampire blood.
* OneToMillionToOne: He can transform into a swarm of bats.
* Really700YearsOld: He's quite old, enough that his blood is significantly more powerful than anything else Sciona can get her hands on.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Demon Lord]]
A powerful demon previously defeated by Dabbler.
----
* DraggedOffToHell: His fight with Dabbler ended in him being dragged into a fiery portal.
* HeartLight: He has a chunk of glowing blue crystal in this position.
* HornsOfVillainy: In demon tradition.
* MultiArmedAndDangerous: Besides his main arms, he has several spider-like limbs on his back.
* NoNameGiven: We still don't know his actual name.
* SpikesOfVillainy: On his arms and shoulders.
* WeWillMeetAgain: His final promise to Dabbler. Now that he's found her, a reunion seems imminent.
[[/folder]]

!!Other
[[folder:Barberian]]
A super who got dragged into the restaurant fight because his friends were going. After the fight he ends up sleeping with Dabbler.
----
* KnowWhenToFoldEm: He surrenders as soon as he gets a chance.
* LaserGuidedAmnesia: Dabbler wipes his mind of the specifics after sleeping with him. According to her, this is to ensure the experience doesn't ruin human women forever.
* MundaneUtility: He uses his super strength to give haircuts to supers with durable hair.
* RagingStiffie: As a result of being the point-blank object of Dabbler's affections. It destroys his pants and the chair he was trying to hide it with.
* SuperStrength: His power.

[[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.

[[/folder]]

[[folder:Tom]]
A man with the power to refill small amounts of liquid and a historian for the Twilight Council.
----
* CasualKink: He's pretty open about his masochism, particularly being used as a bloodbag by vampires.
* CutLexLuthorACheck: As Sydney notes, there are more profitable uses for his power.
* HeartIsAnAwesomePower: He can replenish his own blood extremely rapidly, something that makes his invaluable to vampires.
* WastefulWishing: He got his power from a genie. Granted, he was drunk at the time.

** He also uses the vast amount of power he gains from the super-brawl at the restaurant to explore the limits of what can be achieved from his power, and theorizes mid-fight about possible strengths and weaknesses that the heroes (Anvil and Maxima in particular) might possess in reaction to his and others' own abilities.



* 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.
