* TheVamp: Wanda Durst is this, using mind games and sex to get her way with others. However, she does have an honorable side that means she always keeps her promises (i.e. Having sex with Dr. Shaw during a deal despite the fact it was only to get him to attack some enemies.)

The 2007 iteration of ''ComicBook/StormWatch'' created by Christos Gage and (mostly) drawn by Doug Mahnke, ''Stormwatch PHD'' emerged from the [[CrisisCrossover line-wide event]] known as Worldstorm. Part of the fallout was that the UN-sponsored Stormwatch Prime could no longer afford to be profligate with their funding. Then [[BaldBlackLeaderGuy Jackson King]], Weatherman of Stormwatch Prime, has a brainwave. He introduced PHD (Post-Human Division) with a mission statement of street-level Stormwatch ops on the cheap, crewed (for the most part) by people who would normally be support staff. Technically the series lasted for 24 issues (January, 2007-January, 2010), but it was retooled into effectively a different book after issue #12, due to [[AfterTheEnd Worlds' End]], another line-wide event.

'''Liam Mendoza aka Callsign Paris''' -- Iliad, not Hilton; otherwise deceptively boring. Late of Stormforce (the special ops army StormWatch ''used'' to have), Paris is a specialist in counter-SPB close-quarters-combat (much like Jukko Hamalainen of Team Achilles.) He has a phenomenal talent for spotting vulnerability in opponents, be it in anatomy or in fighting style.

* StraightGay: The New Romantic. His father was the original Romantic back in the forties, but added the New Wave motif to his costume since it was TheEighties. He also notes the irony of his pheromone manipulation working only on women while he's gay. Betty and Fahrenheit both mention after they finish questioning him how badly they had to fight back the urge to have sex with him right there.

* AnIcePerson: The Cooler, a psychotic blue-skinned teenager who wields ice and is set up as an ArchEnemy to Fahrenheit for the first half of the series.



* CListFodder: A later story arc involved Stormwatch PHD investigating the deaths of retired Stormwatch members, though most of the members who died were created just for the story.



* HardHead: Incredibly averted. Farenheit starts the series with no powers thanks to a concussion. Although she regains her powers, they're not as strong or precise as they once were. On a smaller note, Gorgeous gets a concussion later in the series. Though she survives, it's treated as something very serious in-universe (just as it is in real life).

* MoreThanMindControl: [[spoiler: Jackson King assures Fahrenheit that her actions were the result of Defile messing with her mind and she's not to blame for betraying the team. However, it turns out Jackson was lying. She knew what she was doing, but Jackson realizes Fahrenheit should've received therapy for her PTSD and that she still needs it, and that at the end of the day she helped defeat Defile and his men and no one got killed.]]
