%%* DareToBeBadass* DareToBeBadass: When Jack threatens him and his baby sister Jack asks what he wanted to be and instead of anything benign or similar to his family he tells this Super-villain ready to kill him that he wanted to get powers and be a heroic cape. When further pressed about the topic about what he'd do to villains like Jack if he got that far this normally insecure boy looks one of the most dangerous men in the world straight in the eyes and tells him that he'd ''kill'' him and those like him for their crimes.


Added DiffLines:

* PersonOfMassConstruction: The limbs he makes, often out of stone or metal, both defy the law of conservation of mass and don't crumble away faster than the substance normally would so it's relatively easy for him to quickly set up large scale (albeit often bare bone) structures for shelters and the like from them. That said [[PersonOfMassDestruction it's just as easy for him to take out the foundations of large buildings to hinder or kill his enemies]].

* InformedFlaw / UnreliableNarrator: Her cowardice; Shadow Stalker's actual behavior is ambiguous. She flees the bookstore after Brian stands up for Taylor and tells her to back off, not to mention advocating trying to run rather than go up against Scion. On the other hand she did fight in two Endbringer battles, including one against Behemoth that wasn't even in her home town. During the fight with Leviathan she risks her life to get closer to him so she can do more damage and is nearly killed for her trouble. She reveals in her interlude that the reason that she hunted Grue so single-mindedly was because he could fight back and wouldn't go down.

* TeethClenchedTeamwork: Eidolon and Taylor do not exchange many words, but there's enough said to be sure that they freaking hate each other- Eidolon for Taylor's murder of Alexandria and Taylor for Eidolon's involvement with Cauldron. They never actually fight however as they only meet during the S-threat fights, and Taylor even trades herself to Echidna to save Eidolon for pragmatic tactical and political reasons.

* BlackAndWhiteMorality: Sees the world in terms of purely good and evil, which is probably where Glory Girl and Panacea get it from. Worse, she couldn't stop seeing Amy as a potential villain because of who her father was, so treated her as a bomb waiting to go off rather than a young, broken girl needing care until way too late. By contrast, couldn't see the issues Victoria was saddled with, either, because "hero".

Leader of the Brockton Bay Protectorate when the story began. A tinker specializing in miniaturization. Fights with his [[BladeOnAStick Halberd]] and a heads-up display that incorporates [[AwesomenessByAnalysis a combat style simulator]] and a LieDetector, among other features. Met Taylor on her first night out right after she and the Undersiders had fought Lung, and convinced her to keep her part in Lung's apprehension secret -- which, incidentally, [[{{Pride}} let him take credit for it]]. Unfortunately for mutual good relations between him and Taylor, Armsmaster got in deep trouble when Lung began to suffer severe tissue damage from the spider bites while in custody, which no doubt contributed to how Taylor's offer to become TheMole for the Protectorate in the Undersiders was harshly refused. Their relationship generally went downhill from there.

* {{Biomanipulation}}: Her real power is the ability to manipulate the biology of whatever she touches. She pretends to be just a healer but it becomes clear that, excluding her own body and conservation of mass, she can do ''anything'' to organic matter with just a touch and a few seconds of thought.
