* ContinuitySnarl: The GailSimone run ended up being this due to ExecutiveMeddling. Wildstorm's editors flip-flopped back and forth over weather the Worldstorm re-launch of Wildstorm's titles were going to be a full reboot, a soft-boot or not a reboot at all, and then failed to tell Simone when they reached a conclusion. The result was her run being a full ContinuityReboot at odds with the rest of the relaunched Wildstorm Universe.

* MistakenForMasturbating: Inverted. In the GailSimone version, Grunge was shown as being a geekish, mommy-boy kid. Wanting to "reinvent himself", he cleverly and systematically rebels against it, for example disposing of all his anti-asthma medications, vitamins and dietary supplements in the toilet while faking a double-entendre laced ImmodestOrgasm just to mess with his family.

* AmazonianBeauty: Caitlin Fairchild, although her muscularity varies DependingOnTheArtist

to:

* AmazonianBeauty: Caitlin Fairchild, although her muscularity varies DependingOnTheArtistDependingOnTheArtist. It's explicitly stated that a muscular physique is part of her powerset and characters in the series have described her as muscular, but her depictions go anywhere from skinny to slightly ripped to muscular powerhouse. Regardless of how she's depicted, she is considered extremely beautiful by a lot of characters; her teammate Freefall has a [[http://i.imgur.com/Ln9CBMC.jpg long-standing inferiority complex]] because she feels she can't measure up to [[http://i.imgur.com/uKUTHHh.jpg Fairchild's ridiculous beauty]], for instance.
** In her New52 incarnation she can become muscular at will by activating her powers. The first time she shows her abilities is in ComicBook/{{Superboy}} where the increase in muscle size shreds [[DressedInLayers her first layer of clothes revealing]] a [[http://static.comicvine.com/uploads/original/6/60598/2079418-jnjm.png swimsuit-like outfit underneath]].



* AmbiguouslyBrown: There's a running gag of sorts that nobody can guess what Sarah Rainmaker's ethnicity is when they first meet her. An entire issue during Adam Warren's run features Sarah in the background waiting for drinks at a bar, all while an idiot next to her tries to guess her background, getting further and further from it as he goes. (She's half American Indian.)
* AndThisIsFor: In one story arc, Caitlin Fairchild became the [[OnlySaneMan only person on Earth]] unaffected by an insipid song that possessed mind-controlling qualities. Finally as she faced off against the creator of this mind-controlling song, she declared war against all bad music (in her opinion); "This is for Creed's 'With Arms Wide Open'! This is for the entire Oasis catalog! And this is for that 'Sunscreen' speech song! I mean, what's that all about?"



* BalloonBelly: Issue 62 features a very subtle use of this after a main character binges on junk food.
* BeachEpisode: The second issue of the first ongoing series is a veritable beach/swimsuit extravaganza, made even more notable by the revelation of a major cast member as a homosexual.



* {{BFG}}: In the first arc, the newly gen-active Fairchild picks up a massive laser/rifle type weapon she obtained from one of the fallen I/O ops to brandish in her fight to save her new comrades....though it seemed to be more of just a chance to see a hot spandex wearing redhead brandish a gun considering she was now about 6'5 and superhumanly strong regardless.
* BlobMonster: Caitlin became this following [[spoiler: her death and rebirth]], displaying a nifty teleportation ability with it as well, though it remains to be seen whether or not she retained these powers following the DC 2011 reboot when the series was merged with DC.
** Gwendolyn at some point is transformed into the chrome variety.



* BoxingLessonsForSuperman: Caitlin had super strength and superhuman agility and speed, but in one issue Sarah Rainmaker started to teach her how to fight.



** She's [[LampshadeHanging lampshaded]] this on several occasions.

to:

** She's [[LampshadeHanging lampshaded]] this on Lampshaded by protagonist Caitlin after realizing that a raft crash has somehow completely removed her khakis and belt: "For some strange reason, I always seem to lose articles of clothing whenever we get into trouble."
** In a recent remake, Fairchild managed to get most of her skintight body suit ripped nearly to shreds in the space of five minutes. To be fair, she did take out
several occasions.commandos and jump clear through a roof to do so.
** The very first time her powers manifested, increasing her muscle mass among other things, she went from petite to AmazonianBeauty and busted out of her clothing.
** The first issue of Adam Warren's run was a recap disguised as a ''[[Creator/VH1 Behind The Music]]'' parody; in the (imaginary) WhereAreTheyNowEpilogue, Caitlin died after defeating a supervillain in sub-zero weather... of [[IncrediblyLamePun exposure]].
** For a male example, [[PlayingWithFire Burnout]] once incinerated his swim trunks while flying up to a plane and ended up having to [[FullFrontalAssault fight naked]].


Added DiffLines:

* DealWithTheDevil: Caitlin Fairchild resolves a BroughtDownToNormal storyline by making a deal with villainess [[TheBaroness Ivana Baiul]]: restore her powers now, in exchange for performing one mission for Ivana sometime in the future. The plot hook is left alone until Adam Warren's run, where he has Ivana call in the favor for one issue -- only to reveal that she'd been repeatedly using Fairchild on missions, only to [[LaserGuidedAmnesia erase her memory of the job, and of repaying her debt, every time]].

Added DiffLines:

* LipstickLesbian: Sarah Rainmaker although it took a while for her to truly come out as one. She is often actually seen attending protests and demonstrations on behalf of the LGBT community and has a tendency to lecture her teammates when they (often) fail to live up to her standards of political correctness. (Usually without much success.)

The book was created by Brandon Choi, Creator/JimLee and artist J. Scott Campbell, and any familiarity with those three should already give an idea of what the book was going to entail. The characters were introduced in ''Comicbook/{{Deathmate}} Black'' (September, 1993). In 1994, they got a 5-issue mini-series. It sold well enough for the introduction of an ongoing series in 1995. It focused on the exploits of five teens who were invited to participate in a government research project, but who all later discovered it was nothing more than a prison used to locate children with "Gen-Active" genes that the government would later attempt to experiment on and use as weapons, of course.
