** Issue 2 has Nico explaining to Gert how the Runaways split. Much of it long-time fans already knew (Xavin leaving Earth, Victor joining the Avengers, [[ComicBook/AvengersArena Murderworld]] and ComicBook/AvengersUndercover going undercover), but we also find out what happened to the rest of the kids: [[spoiler:Nico decided not to come back to the group after the events of ''Undercover'' and went off on her own, eventually joining A-Force. Klara got taken by the State, Molly's grandmother took her in, and then Karolina decided to leave, making Chase the only one left.]]

** A minor example: Gert refers to Victor as "the only boy Nico hasn't kissed". Turns out, Nico and Victor ''did'' kiss, shortly after Gert died.



* ImagineSpot: When Gert mentions PuttingTheBandBackTogether, Old Lace imagines the group forming an actual band, with her at the drums.



* PuttingTheBandBackTogether: The first arc, with Gert driving it.

* PuttingTheBandBackTogether: The first arc, with Gert driving it. The trope is name dropped quite a few times in issue #3.
* RefusalOfTheCall: [[spoiler: Karolina]] rejects abandoning her new life and rejoin the group. Though it's implied she felt really bad about it.



* TakeThat: One of Karolina's affirmations is "I am not responsible for my parents' actions," which could be read as a swipe at her betrothal to Xavin, which was initiated as a way of ending the war that her parents started.

to:

* SurvivalMantra: Karolina has one, taught by her therapist, which she seems to chant quite often.
-->'''Karolina''': I'm a good person. I'm my own person. My parents' decisions don't define me. I forgive myself for the mistakes I made when I was too young to know any better. I deserve to be happy.

* TimeTravelEscape: How the first issue starts. Chase went back in time to try to stop Geoffrey Wilder from killing Gert, but he was too slow and got there just as she got stabbed. So he had Old Lace drag his past self out of the building, and brought her in that condition to Nico in the future to heal her.

** Gert tells Chase to do the same with [[spoiler: Victor]], but as Chase points out, unlike Gert, Chase has no idea when, where or how did [[spoiler: Victor]] die.



* UnusuallyUninterestingSight: Gert brings her deinonichus to a college campus, and the biggest reaction they get are a few raised eyebrows, and some particularly dense student mistaking her for a dog.



* WeCanRebuildHim: Chase is convinced they can rebuild [[spoiler: Victor]]. Gert is much less optimistic, and thinks they should give him a proper burial already.



* WriterOnBoard: Rainbow Rowell has made no secret of her preference for the original run and distaste for subsequent runs.

* IncompatibleOrientation: In Issue #3, Chase and Gert address their relationship and note that they can't get back together because Gert hasn't aged, while Chase has, and thus there's now a six-year age difference between them.



* VoodooShark: In Issue #2, it's stated that it's only been two years since Gert's death, but given how many major Marvel events the Runaways have been involved with in the decade since Vaughan left the series, this raises some serious questions about just how chaotic the Marvel Universe truly is.

* MoralityChain: How Nico saw the others. She's afraid of going bad, so she was hoping that all of them would keep her on the straight and narrow.
