The youngest member of the group, 11-year-old Molly's parents were mutants. They thought she did not inherit the X-Gene from them, but during their escape her eyes glow an eerie purple and she gains super strength. She has limited invulnerability and super strength, but using these abilities are extremely tiring and can only be sustained for a short time before she requires a nap ([[spoiler: though this no longer seems to apply as of volume 3]]). Serving as the voice of innocence and child-like good-nature, numerous characters nontheless explain that Molly is much more intelligent and mature than she appears, but [[ObfuscatingStupidity she hides it well]].

A ShapeShifting Super Skrull in training from the Planet Tarnax VII. Being a Skrull, for whom changing shape (and gender) is of no more importance or difficulty than changing the color of your hair, Xavin is sometimes male and sometimes female. He/She (Even the characters become confused over the proper pronouns to use) possesses all the powers of the ComicBook/FantasticFour (though not nearly on the same level as them) and joins the team as the result of a bargain made long ago between his and Karolina's parents.

* AmbiguousDisorder: She has a great deal of difficulty socializing and can be prone to weird moods. Whether this is the result of the abuse she suffered or if there's some other factor at work is unrevealed. ''ComicBook/AvengersAcademy'' hinted that she may have PTSD.
* AmbiguouslyHuman: There have been many theories as to the source of Klara's powers, ranging from mutation to some sort of connection to the gods. One of Marvel's handbooks listed her as a mutant, but it's never been stated in any of her appearances that this is the case.



* {{Mutant}}: Her powers come from the mutant X-gene like the ComicBook/XMen.



* ReallySevenHundredYearsOld: She was born in the late nineteenth century, but arrived in the modern day via time travel, which technically makes her the oldest Runaway.



* SugarAndIcePersonality: She is shockingly rude to strangers, but extremely loyal to her friends.



* DealWithTheDevil: She helped Ultron to rebuild his body [[spoiler: in exchange for a child. What Ultron didn't tell her is that he planned to use said child to destroy the Avengers from the inside (though at that point she didn't know about Ultron's true nature)]]. At some point she quotes this trope verbatim.
