to:

* TakeAThirdOption: Despite his eagerness to enter the action, he's aware that violence isn't the answer in every situation - he knows that being a BarrierWarrior is sometimes a better answer, and he's the one who came up with the idea of a peaceful solution to the Argos/Emerald Ones' conflict (which he enacted with 84).



* MadeOfIron: Not explicitly one of his listed powers, but it's worth noting that Praetorian Academy flung him off of an aircraft moving at least at cruising speed and altitude, Flea most certainly did not land on his feet, bounced a bit, and is none the worse for wear from his unexpected and impromptu no-parachute skydiving excursion.



* EquivalentExchange: For every change he makes with his powers, something else has to balance it out. With some effort, he can sometimes get a sense of what that exchange will be.



* BadassNormal: In training, at least.

to:

* BadassNormal: In training, at least. [[spoiler: His future will be to graduate to this, becoming The Revenant's full partner, if his phone call during his stay at Tom's castle is any indication.]]




to:

* PowerIncontinence: Part of why she prompts [[GasleakCoverup Gasleak Coverups]] is that she tends to get a bit out of control when she loses her temper. Seeing as she's one of the youngest students, she's still learning the ins and outs of her powers. In one alternate dimension, she was hurt badly enough by that dimension's Tyler (who was considerably less nice but way more powerful) that she had to permanently wear a containment suit due to this problem.
* SuperpowerfulGenetics: Her parents are both powered heroes, and several aunts and uncles on both sides also have similar powers. She's also 84's cousin.


Added DiffLines:

* ShoutOut: His hologram is patterned after the various nerdy kids that appeared in ''NewspaperComic/TheFarSide''.


Added DiffLines:

* SinkOrSwimMentor: His idea of teaching his son how to be a hero, according to Ron, was to basically just throw him at the villains and let his powers do the rest. Ron reacted very poorly, and his mother made sure that wouldn't happen again.


Added DiffLines:

* SinkOrSwimMentor: On occasion, The Revenant will just push Tyler forward - when teaching him about grapples, quite literally, right off a building. He avoids doing this around villains, though, and it also becomes less frequent as Tyler is starting [[BadassNormal to jump in on his own]].


Added DiffLines:

* WeatherManipulation: His innate power is a lower-grade version of this - he doesn't have as much fine-tuning to it as others do, and he is restricted to what weather can be made in the local conditions (so no snow in the tropics in July), but he can direct rain up to making conditions ripe for a tornado. He also has enough precision to hit a general area and its environs - he manages to completely drench a golf course as a teen.


Added DiffLines:

* BrainUploading: In his backstory - his old and out-of-shape body was replaced with a robotic one prior to his introduction. [[spoiler: He then does it again, uploading from his damaged mechanical head to a new organic one build by directing the kids in the new Rainmaker Program.]]

* HypnoFool: Apparently once mooned his teachers while under another Praetorian student's MindControl.



* AmbitionIsEvil: When he fails the second question of the final guardian, he goes on a rant about how all superheroes are ambitious, and there's nothing wrong with advancing your career while saving the world. The guardian didn't care; it just cares that his answer was incomplete, and therefore wrong.

The To be fair, the guardian didn't care; doesn't disagree; it just cares that his answer was incomplete, and therefore wrong.

* LegacyCharacter: [[spoiler:The second Atlas]].



* ArsonMurderAndJaywalking: Threatened to turn Manhattan into his personal "temple, pleasure palace and gift shop."



* FriendlyEnemy: Having someone to challenge is his purpose for being. That doesn't mean he has to be a jerk about it, so he isn't.

* AGodAmI: [[spoiler: Inverted. Victor invented a machine that granted him omnipotence in an alternate dimension]] in volume 10. [[spoiler: However, with the ensuing gain of perspective he becomes a benign entity that spends his time encoding poems and music into the background radiation of the cosmos and saves galaxies from destruction. Once back in his own dimension his own achievements only serve to annoy him.]]

* ISeeDeadPeople: [[spoiler:Ambriel]] tries to get his and Ms. Imperia's attention. It apparently doesn't work, but once she's gone the readers find out that he ''did'' see her--he apparently just didn't think that she was worth mentioning.

* TheCameo: In Williams' other work, ''{{Nodwick}}'''s ''Q-Force 4'' spin-off. He essentially acts as damage control to the "heroes" by making sure they get assigned missions where they're unable to actually harm innocents when they inevitably cock up.
