* BackFromTheDead: He gets resurrected in Comicbook/AvengersUndercover.''Comicbook/AvengersUndercover''.



A pair of telepathic mutants who are doctors by profession. They had originally thought that Molly was not a mutant. They both have a sadistic side, once telepathically forcing a rival gang leader to watch as they butchered his crew. They conspired with the Deans to murder the human members of the Pride, hoping to secure the six seats in the Gibborim's paradise for themselves and their kids. [[spoiler: The 2017 series reveals they weren't actual mutants. Molly's grandmother genetically engineered their abilities, explaining why they had the same powers.]]

Molly's grandmother, a scientist introduced in the 2017 series. In the period leading up to the group's dissolution, she arrived to offer Molly a place to live which Molly accepted. [[spoiler: She's been keeping track of the other Runaways, has been taking samples of Molly's blood on a regular basis, and has... something, in her basement that wants to meet Molly. Not only that, but she engineered Gene and Alice's powers.]]

* AmbiguouslyEvil: [[spoiler: She's been keeping an eye on Chase and the others through what appear to be genetically modified cats whose eyes glow in the same way Molly's and her parents' did. Dr. Hayes has also got someone or something inside her basement she seems to be experimenting on, takes samples of Molly's blood on a regular basis, and discreetly plucked a sample of Victor's hair. What this is all leading up to is unknown, but it can't be good. The smile on her face when Gert decides in the fourth issue to stay with her and Molly only adds more fuel to the idea she's a villain.]]

* EvenEvilHasLovedOnes: [[spoiler: She genuinely did love her children and does love Molly, but she's made it clear she's not going to lose Molly to the Pride's children the way she lost Gene and Alice to their parents. She's even going so far as to create clones of them enhanced with the DNA she took from the Runaways.]]
* EvenEvilHasStandards: [[spoiler: She expresses nothing but contempt for the Pride, not only viewing them as a bunch of half-baked charlatans (she expressly considered Chase's parents to be insults as scientists), but also because she recognized Gene and Alice became DrunkWithPower because of them and it led to their deaths.]]

Added DiffLines:

* VillainousUnderdog: He's the only original runaway that isn't an alien, magic, has super technology, psychic links to genetically engineered dinosaurs, or superhuman strength. Instead, he only has his wits to get by, and is also the secret villain of the first arc. His plan was very risky, as he had to lead the others, while also avoiding his parents controlling the law to capture them, the same ones he was trying to ''save'', and he had very limited resources as a wanted criminal. Literally, all he had to rely on were the other runaways, the same ones he was trying to deceive. And if wasn't for the Gibborim, he would've ''succeeded''.

Added DiffLines:

* ForgottenFallenFriend: Non-lethal example. In the 2017 series, she's never mentioned outside one brief instance in which she was taken by social services. And despite the PuttingTheBandBackTogether feel the renewal has, nobody ever suggests brigning her back into the group.

* AffirmativeActionGirl: GenderInverted. Victor was introduced to fill the "second male" void left by Alex's death at the end of the first arc, and essentially serves as his replacement being the permanent male member of the Runaways alongside Chase.

* RoguesGalleryTransplant: The initial secret villain of the Runaways before his death. Since getting revived, he became a villain to [[ComicBook/LukeCage Power Man]] and [[ComicBook/ImmortalIronFist Iron Fist]].



* TheOneGuy: Very briefly the only guy on the team, in between Alex's death and Victor's introduction. Even [[LampshadeHanging lampshaded]] when he insisted that the leapfrog was a male vessel, because the team had "more than enough estrogen". He's become this once again in the 2017 revival, which brings back the original team sans Alex and leaves him as the only guy.

* EveryoneHasStandards: After having been kidnapped for being the son of a supervillain meant to become one in the future, he was willing to play along to find out who his parent was... until they brought up the [[ThoseWackyNazis Red Skull]]. That was the moment Victor refused to cooperate because he couldn't believe he was the child of a ''Nazi''. Fortunately, he was right, as instead his father was Ultron.

Added DiffLines:

* StreetSmart: One of his most consistent yet overlooked traits. He chose a white van and switched out its license plates so it would blend in better. Told Alex he could stretch their meager convenience store resources. He found the storage facility where Old Lace and the Leapfrog were being held, and located both Hostels. And threatened Topher and later Victor with a knife.
