The twin brother and partner of Scylla, Charybdis shares his energy manipulation powers. The one problem in Cary's life before the Plutonian turned evil was that he was in love with his brother's wife, Kaidan. [[spoiler: After Scylla's death, Cary takes the name Survivor, and reveals that he is in fact the source of the brothers' powers, and has become even stronger. Even later it's revealed that they're triplets, with a third, retired brother called Elliot.]]

* {{Incompatible Orientation}}: Claimed to not be into men back when she first worked with Max as the new Jailbait. She's later shown flirting with boys before she heads off to Max's fateful meeting with the Paradigm, so that might have been a lie.
* {{Jumped At the Call}}: Deconstructed. Annie embracing her new identity as a vigilante is noted in-story as rooted in her trying to escape from her life.

* FreudianExcuse: Zig-zagged. Sure, on the one hand, he got tossed from one foster home to another after his families discovered his powers. Several rejected him out of fear, and one mother even killed herself. Hell, he was even born from a [[spoiler: probe who took the place of the baby that an insane new mother just killed before being overwhelmed with grief and sorrow.]] Then there's the fact that [[spoiler: he lived in the woods when foster homes failed him as a feral child, known as the Wolf Boy.]]
** But he also got a few good lucky breaks, such as a caring parent who genuinely wanted to teach him right from wrong, a girlfriend, and the love of at least 90% of the human race, but it wasn't enough.
** Then again, by the time he began getting his lucky breaks, he was already severely psychologically damaged. While he did have some good stuff, it didn't undo any of the truama he already endured and presumably, he never went to therapy to cope with it (which would've done him alot of good.)

* LoveHungry: Combined with SecretlySelfish, this was Plutonian down to the core. He was so desperate for ''everyone's'' unconditional love and acceptance that even the slightest criticisms (from bitter {{jerkass}}es that really should've just been tuned out) made him terrified of failure and making any mistakes that could lead to losing everyone's love and admiration for him. When he does make one of those Really Bad Mistakes (which also loses him his sidekick's trust), that's when he basically throws his hands up and says "Fine."
** His desperation for love is probably a result of being bounced between foster homes due to his powers and that stint as [[spoiler: the Wolf-Boy, where he was a feral child.]]

* RapeByProxy: One of the Plutonian's more bizarre crimes is to kidnap men and women, dressing them up like himself and [[spoiler: Bette]] and presumably make them do the deed while he watches. The women are instructed to cry "Save me!" as they're brought to orgasm.
