Added DiffLines:

* CrossOver: Not counting the fact the team debuted in a massive crossover with Valiant Comics, they did have a new non-Image crossovers, including with Spider-Man and the Fantastic Four. The latter made it a point for Burnout to get into an argument with the Human Torch, since both have basically the same powers.

* DownerEnding: DownerEnding:
**
The end of the first volume.volume as a whole.
** ''Magical Drama Queen Roxy'' has a really depressing one. Roxy goes to sleep feeling unwanted and unloved, has a wacky dream about being a magical girl but begins realizing it's all a dream when at the end everyone begins treating her with love and respect. She wakes up, still feeling unwanted and unloved, and even more depressed than before.
-->'''Roxy:''' God, I frickin' ''hate'' having pleasant dreams, 'cause... 'cause... 'cause I always wake up.


Added DiffLines:

* HormoneAddledTeenager: All of them, to some degree, but Grunge is the king of the trope.


Added DiffLines:

* InNameOnly: Grunge in the New 52. About the only thing left of the character is the name, the costume and the powers; the Grunge we meet in the New 52 is not only tall and clearly Caucasian -- he's also a sadistic, murderous bad guy who scoffs at ideas like "mercy," "compassion" and "morality."


Added DiffLines:

* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: With the notable example of NiceGirl Caitlin, the entire team fall into {{Jerkass}} behavior from time to time -- Grunge and Sarah being particularly likely to act like self-centered jerks -- but it's mainly because they're ''teenagers.'' When it comes down to it, they are still heroes, and will do the right thing.


Added DiffLines:

* ObfuscatingStupidity: There is the occasional hint that Grunge might be smarter than he lets on, though this [[DependingOnTheWriter Depends Heavily On The Writer]]. The original writing team of Brandon Choi and J. Scott Campbell had him mostly as TheDitz, but occasionally displaying some surprising HiddenDepths. Adam Warren's Grunge, however, is pretty much exactly as stupid as he appears -- whereas Gail Simone's Grunge is directly stated to be the most intelligent member of the team, just acting the carefree fool as a means of rebellion.


Added DiffLines:

* SmokingIsCool: Present, but downplayed, with Roxy. She smokes cigarettes, though this habit only really comes up when she's in her "BadGirl" mode. The rest of the time her smoking is barely even mentioned.

* MostCommonSuperpower: Caitlin, as shown in that trope's page image. In a bit of a twist, Caitlin's physique is a direct part of her powers, and whenever her powers are transferred, so are the boobs. When working alongside power-absorber Grunge, HilarityEnsues.

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 ''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.

Gen 13. So many genres and incarnations, so little time. This was a Creator/{{Wildstorm}} universe based comic series that used to be owned by Creator/{{Image|Comics}} until Jim Lee sold the imprint to {{Creator/DC Comics}}. DC gave it no less than three different reboots.

The book was created by Brandon Choi, 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.

Following this, Creator/ChrisClaremont was brought in to write an [[{{Retool}} all-new, all-different]] ''Gen 13'', but the new version [[ReplacementScrappy was not terribly good]] and poorly received. Set in an alternate universe, the story featured a strangely alive Fairchild mentoring an [[FiveTokenBand all-new team]]. This version was cancelled after sixteen issues, ending with the resurrection of the original team.

''After that'', it seems to have been folded into the DC Universe along with the rest of Wildstorm as a result of ''Comicbook/{{Flashpoint}}''; there are no plans to revive the book, but some ''Gen 13'' characters have shown up in the "[[FanNickname DCnU]]".

There is a little known direct-to-video animated film that was released overseas, titled ''[[Film/Gen13TheMovie Gen 13: The Movie]]''.
