!!'''Longshot'''

!!'''Longshot'''
!!'''ComicBook/{{Longshot}}'''



* ArtificialHuman: Well, artificial [[AnotherDimension other-dimensional]] "human". Longshot and others like him were created by the Spineless Ones to serve as performers in their TV-like entertainments.
* {{Bishonen}}: The reason for Longshot's attractiveness.
* BoldlyComing: He's been romancing "alien" (human and human-mutants) women since first stepping foot on Earth. Since his marriage to Dazzler ended, he's been making ''plenty'' of human women very, very happy. Sometimes repeatedly.
* BornLucky: His powers.
* ChickMagnet: Ladies ''love'' him.
* CloudCuckooLander
* EvenTheGuysWantHim: In ComicBook/XFactor, when he first showed up Detective Lieutenant Weiss is immediately smitten (which does wonders to move the investigation process along).
* TheFool
* FourFingeredHands: Has only three fingers and a thumb on each hand.
* GlowingEyes: His left eye glows when he uses his luck or psychometry powers.
* IncorruptiblePurePureness: Explicitly a part of how his luck powers work in the earlier parts of his continuity. So long as his motives are pure rather than selfish, everything that can ''possibly'' go in his favor will do so, frequently in drastic fashion. If he attempts to use his luck for his own profit, however - such as his attempt in his introductory LS to work as a stuntman - his luck turns against him and reality quite painfully ensues.
* InformedAttractiveness: Almost every female character he comes into contact with comments on his handsomeness. Kitty Pryde was so entranced by him she stole a kiss from him while he was asleep.
* LaserGuidedAmnesia: Mojo did this to him before his reappearance in ComicBook/{{Exiles}}.
** [[spoiler:Longshot has no recollection of Dazzler's pregnancy because his son, Shatterstar, erased his memories of this in order to preserve the StableTimeLoop of his own history]].
* LegoGenetics: Was created by the Spineless One scientist Arize, partly using DNA taken from [[spoiler: Shatterstar, who is also Longshot's biological son with Dazzler]].
* OnlyKnownByTheirNickname: He has a real name, but doesn't remember it.
* OutdatedOutfit: The leather jumpsuit. In his debut, he also had a mullet-style haircut modeled after the musician Limahl. For the ''Longshot Saves The Marvel Universe'' miniseries, he got a more modern look.
* {{Psychometry}}: He can read "psychic imprints" that people leave on objects that they have handled and sometimes can even look into the future of the person or object he touches.
* RefugeeFromTVLand: He's from Mojoworld, where TV is life, and life is controlled by Mojo.
* StableTimeLoop: [[spoiler:Due to TimeTravel and the non-multiversal nature of Mojoworld, Longshot was created using genes collected from his own son Shatterstar after the latter had been blasted into Mojoworld's past]].
* TropeCodifier: For a whole host of visual tropes from the Dark Age of comics. Art Adams' scratchy style in the original Longshot miniseries was a major influence on his inker, Whilce Portacio, and Jim Lee, and Adams actually gave Longshot pouches because of his dislike of the [[HyperspaceArsenal hyperspace arsenal trope.]]

!!'''Rachel Anne Summers/Phoenix, Marvel Girl'''

Rachel Summers (or Grey, depending on her mood) is the daughter of Cyclops and Jean Grey from an alternate dystopian future timeline where Robert Kelly was assassinated, and as a result, the Sentinels were allowed to take over the world. She used the Phoenix Force to go back in time to find her mother dead and her father married to Madelyne Pryor. She's essentially a way to get a Jean Grey-type character into the comics when they weren't allowed to bring Jean back. She was also Marvel's first (of ''many'') "child from the future" characters. In addition to her mother's telepathy and telekinesis, Rachel can also send her astral form through time and across realities. She doesn't do this often though, since the rules of time travel make it largely ineffective. It also turns out [[RetCon her timeline is "special"]] so she [[AssPull doesn't need to be born in this one]].

* AntiHero: Of the KnightInSourArmor variety, although she started as a PragmaticHero or UnscrupulousHero.
* AntiHeroSubstitute: To her mother, Jean Grey.
* BadFuture: Rachel escaped from, pretty much, the ultimate CrapsackWorld.
* CelibateHero: Rachel had a relationship with a grown-up Franklin Richards in her own timeline, who was killed before her eyes. After that, she wasn't interested in romance for a long time.
* CivvieSpandex: Danskins and leg warmers, before becoming Phoenix.
* DidYouJustPunchOutCthulhu: Galactus. And technically, one time Rachel's own consciousness was in a coma while the Phoenix took him on.
* FacialMarkings: Her Hound marks are either tattoos or scars, depending on the writer/artist, not to mention the Phoenix tattoo that flares up when she uses her powers.
* FanservicePack: By the time Excalibur was formed, she was ''insanely'' hot (but that's Alan Davis for you).
* FieryRedhead
* FollowTheLeader: She was the very first "character sent from the future to change the past" characters that lasted more then a single issue, and numerous others, including fellow X-Men characters Bishop and Cable have similar initial origins (born in a dystopia of sorts, sent back to change it, sticks around afterwords).
* GlowingEyesOfDoom: And glowing tattoos, come to that.
* HotWings: Starting with taking on the Phoenix mantle, and in later comics depicted as blue flames instead of yellow.
* HunterOfHerOwnKind: In the future, when she was a Hound.
* IdenticalGrandson
* InSeriesNickname: Ray.
* KidFromTheFuture
* LegacyCharacter
* MostCommonSuperpower: Originally averted: in her first appearances, Rachel was skinny, flat-chested and rather unattractive, since she came from a concentration camp. Of course, she filled out eventually - something helped by her visit to the Mojoverse's Body Shoppe.
* NoodleIncident: Her transformation into a reptile-humanoid thing.
* ProgressivelyPrettier: As mentioned above, originally, Rachel, in both actual art and in spoken dialogue concerning her is shown to be borderline emaciated, with a very unflattering buzz-cut. These end up being removed later on.
* PsychicPowers
* SensorCharacter: She was a Hound.
* ShellShockedVeteran: Wolverine once compares her to Holocaust survivors.
* SinsOfOurFathers: Rachel was almost killed because of the crimes her mother had committed as Dark Phoenix.
* SpikesOfVillainy: Originally, Rachel's Hound uniform was depicted as black with metal studs around the neck and wrists, down her front, and along the outside of her arms and legs. Her Excalibur catsuit was an adaptation of this: red with spikes instead of studs, and none on the legs. Alan Davis consistently drew the black studded uniform in flashbacks, but other artists instead put Rachel in the very same red. The outfit mix-up may have started with Days of the Future Present, where Rachel refers to her costume as her "Hound uniform" even though it's really a variation.
* SummersFamilyTree: Obviously.
* SuperpowerLottery: Like her mother, Rachel has telekinesis and telepathy so powerful, it's almost limitless even when she's ''not'' [[CosmicBeing Phoenix]].
* SuperpowerfulGenetics
* SuspiciouslySimilarSubstitute (for her "mother")
