* LiteralDisarming: He had his bionic hand (and leg) removed by Cameron Hodge during the ''X-Tinction Agenda'' crossover to make him less dangerous. It was also twisted payback for deliberately putting himself in stasis so nobody could find the X-Men's plan by scanning his mind.



* MrFixit: his mutant ability helps him build machines by simply imagining what they should do, rather than working out the pesky details.

A Cheyenne indian, born to be a shaman. He ran from his responsibilities and joined the military, only to conjure up some badassery in Vietnam and releasing the Trickster. Then he worked for the US government as their gadget man, only to create the gun that stripped Storm (accidently: it was meant to be Rogue) of her powers. He nursed her back to health, then got a WhatTheHellHero for it when she found out he was at fault. Sacrificed the X-Men (at the time) with their permission to lock away the entity he had released, after it wreaked havoc in Dallas. He eventually joined the X-Men and wanted to marry Storm, but ultimately left her (and the team) for Mystique when he felt Ororo didn't love him. You can imagine how well ''that'' relationship went, and he regretted his actions when Storm went on to marry the Black Panther. Supposedly, he'll be Genesis in the future.

* AntiHero: Originally usually presented as mixed traits from type II and IV, but debatable as he technically started out as a weapon-dealing, ex-Vietnam war criminal, so Creator/WarrenEllis probably had a good point in interpreting himas type V or a DesignatedHero VillainProtagonist.

!!'''Longshot'''

to:

!!'''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.]]
