* WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes: Her weakness, along with her nightmare, is fire. Her shadows break in fire's light, and she instinctively knows that if she burns to death, she won't be coming back. This is why she used Firefight as her disguise; who would attack a fire Epic with fire?

* RealityWarper: Her actual power is to bring images of other possible universes into this one, which, as she notes, [[AwesomeButImpractical is basically a really complicated way of making illusions]]. Right after she resurrects, she's temporarily strong enough to make these images completely real, making her a full-on RealityWarper strong enough to fight a High Epic on an even level and use his own abilities against him, but this fades quickly.

[[spoiler:Skip the "fades quickly" part after she claims the powers completely from Calamity. She keeps this effect in addition to having a VoiceOfTheLegion, becoming not unlike a full power [[VideoGame/BioShockInfinite Elizabeth]].]]
