* MorphWeapon: Marvel Boy sports; among hosts of equipment, a pair of bracelets [[GenerationXerox strangely reminiscent]] of the Kree Nega-Bands, they have the ability change into weapons like a plasma blaster and razor blade which doubles both as shield and sword.

*** PowerGlows / BackgroundMagicField: Radiates with a potent mystic aura.

* FlatEarthAtheist: Noh-Varr blatantly admits to not believing in higher powers when conversing with Fantomex, turns out Kree offspring are tutored in a [[ColdEquation binary code]] which disproves the existence of transcendent beings. Hence his immunity to the Weapon XVI contaminant.

* SuddenlySexuality: There is no indication that David was bisexual until Vil. 2 #9, and in his previous appearances in [[ComicBook/NewMutants New Mutants/Academy X/New X-Men]], he was paired with Surge and had no romantic interactions with other guys. Justified as he says he realized it after getting new powers - which happened right before New X-Men tied into a crossover event, after which it was cancelled and David faded into the background of the X-Books.

* WhatTheHellHero: In ''[[ComicBook/NewMutants New X-Men]]'' he had a history of doing this when some of his friends acted out of the line (for example, [[spoiler: Josh having an affair with a teacher, Noriko trying to BreakHisHeartToSaveHim]]). In ''Young Avengers'' he for once ends up being on reciving end of this [[spoiler: when Billy calls him on kissing Teddy and trying to break them up.]]

* ActionHero: Violence is her main solution. Her answer to the question "Do you have a plan?"? "Punch everyone".
* {{Badass}}: Acknowledged in her introduction in the recap page: "Interdimensional kicker of butts".
** BadassPrincess: She hails from a world removed from the multiverse where her mothers were queens, she was addressed as "Princess America", and she's been doing this before she was even ''ten''.
** BadassGay: She kicks ass and doesn't care for kissing boys. As she tells Ultimate Nullifier, he's not her type and she's not on his team.
* BrokenPedestal: [[spoiler: As the Demiurge, Billy was basically her ''{{God}}''. Then she discovers he's just an angsty teenager]].
* CaptainPatriotic: Played with in that she fills in the niche of the "red, white and blue" superhero in the team but it's unclear what she thinks about America the Nation. She's Miss America because that's her real name.
* CivvieSpandex: Her "costume" is essentially a ComicBook/CaptainAmerica t-shirt with a jacket and pair of shorts. WordOfGod is that her suit was designed with {{Cosplay}}ers in mind.
* {{Determinator}}: Once led an unlikely army of [[OurGhostsAreDifferent shades]] in a limbo dimension against the god-like master of that plane. Was repelled numerous times but still kept going until she eventually killed him with help of ComicBook/TheDefenders.
* DimensionalTraveler: Has the ability to generate Star shaped portals to other dimensions.
* ExperimentedInCollege: Briefly experimented with heterosexuality while in the Teen Brigade.
* {{Expy}}: Of ComicBook/WonderWoman. America also comes from an all-female utopia and leaves it for the "outside" world. Visually, her motif is five point star, something ComicBook/WonderWoman too has.
* EvenTheGirlsWantHer: As she puts it to Kate: "I've seen the way you look at me. You're not that straight."
* {{Fangirl}}: [[spoiler: She idolized the Demiurge as a child and when she finally met Billy, she came to the conclusion that he's a bit of an idiot like everyone else. She still makes friends with Billy, though.]]
* FlyingBrick: She can fly ''and'' pack a serious punch.
* HairTriggerTemper: Played with. Though she is quick to use violence as an option, she goes about it in a very calm and deliberate manner. In the prelude to Vol. 2, She carefully puts down her chopsticks and tells the waitress she's "Good for the damages" before punching Loki through a wall.
* HeroOfAnotherStory: She's been on her own, hero-ing, across a dozen different dimensions without a complaint and no desire to join any big super hero team. As she put it "You couldn't pay me to join the Avengers."
* HasTwoMommies: And they have the same powerset that she does [[spoiler: and they're both dead, having apparently 'scattered themselves across dimensions' to give her paradise, which she rejected.]]
* HomelessHero: WordOfGod has said that she started her hero-ing career right there on the streets and spent much of that time in various states of poverty.
* LightningBruiser: She's ''very'' fast and ''very'' strong. How fast? When Monica Rambeau observes America while moving at light-speed, America still looks like she's moving fast.
* LittleMissBadass: She'd been superheroing since the age of ten.
* MurderIsTheBestSolution: She's willing to kill Loki when the guy's acting suspicious.
--> I know what killing means and I'm pretty down with that.
* MysteriousPast: She clearly knows something is up with Billy and his fate, but when Teddy tries to ask her for more details, he receives a DeathGlare in response. And in the horde of AlternateUniverse versions of the gang, she doesn't have any counterparts.
** Hell, Loki's description of her in the Comicbook/MarvelNOW short is this: "One mysterious interdimensional superhero with mysterious background and mysterious anger issues."
** [[spoiler: It's revealed that America's homeworld exists outside the Multiverse and she's a RebelliousPrincess who ran away from her utopian homeworld because she couldn't stand by to see her world do nothing after her mothers sacrificed themselves and left her orphaned.]]
* NotWearingTights: She doesn't really have a costume, just themed clothing.
* OneGenderRace: Her dimensioned composed of nothing but females hence her lesbianism.
* OOCIsSeriousBusiness: Things must be really bad if the normally stoic and serious America starts showing tears in her eyes. [[spoiler: And in a heartwarming example, she's seen with tears down her face when Billy and Teddy make up.]]
* ParentalAbandonment: Her mothers sacrificed themselves to create a paradise and future for her before she was ten. [[spoiler:America couldn't stand by and see her homeworld do nothing so she jumped into a portal and hero on her own.]]
* PrecisionFStrike: She tries to prevent Loki from reciting a spell because she doesn't trust him, but then her two mothers show up. She immediately releases him with "%!@# that".
* PrimaryColorChampion: WordOfGod says one of the reasons she was chosen is because she fills in this visual niche.
* ProperlyParanoid:
** She sticks with the team specifically to keep an eye on Loki.
** Later on, she joins [[ComicBook/TheUltimates2015 the Ultimates]] to prevent them from "going too far". [[spoiler:When Carol Danvers starts becoming increasingly aggressive in trying to predict the future using the Inhuman Ulysses, America acts.]]
* PsychicNosebleed: If she pushes her teleporting too far, this starts to happen.
* RoyalsWhoActuallyDoSomething: She was a princess who decided to strike out and hero on her own.
* SecretPublicIdentity [=/=] RealNameAsAnAlias: Her real name is America Chavez.
* ShesGotLegs[=/=]WhoWearsShortShorts: Her short shorts seem designed to show off her muscular legs.
* SpicyLatina: Subverted, despite being prone to violence, she is very calm and collected. She just has little tolerance for indirect methods.
-->'''Kieron Gillen:''' But she hasn’t a temper. Or, at least, none that we’ve seen on the page. She’s just terribly direct and believes that appropriate levels of violence are acceptable. She has little tolerance for games. [...] That's not a temper. That's control.
* StevenUlyssesPerhero: As stated, her real name is actually America.
* TheStoic: She is calm and pragmatic. Gillen described her rigid control over her emotions as one of her fundamental character traits.
-->"She plays her cards close to her chest. She's probably swallowed her cards."
* SuperStrength: It was once stated she could throw a tank to the moon, a feat very few probably could pull off.
* TalkToTheFist: A woman of action rather than words in most instances.
* ThinkingUpPortals: [[RuleOfCool And kicking them open]]. It's her mode of dimensional travel.
* UnlimitedWardrobe: She's worn at least 5-6 different outfits with the stars and stripes theme during Gillen's run. WordOfGod says there are more to come.
* WhenSheSmiles: As Creator/KieronGillen puts it, a smile from Miss America is a rare and beautiful thing.
