* ByronicHero: Efficient, clever in applications of law, and reasonable enough as an attorney, but also prone to brutal, unthinking and cruel acts of violence; loves her family and cares for her son, but is blatant workaholic who neglects her son and wrecked her marriage to her ex-husband; a self-proclaimed lover of the law and upholder of judiciary rules and the system and an unrepentant multiple murderess and blackmailer. Sees herself as a dispenser of justice and a "good guy", despite engaging in multiple criminal acts and acknowledging she'll be sent to prison or worse when caught.

* HeWhoFightsMonsters: Kate is well aware of this trope, and in an early issue has a dream where she rescues Franchise/{{Batman}} by shooting the criminals holding him hostage, and after she frees him he [[WhatTheHellHero calls her out]] for being no better than the villains. [[spoiler: She later comes to terms with it and decides her actions, no matter how hypocritical and unlawful, must done for she viewed as the greater good]].

* HeroWithBadPublicity: Averted. When
she viewed as started killing criminals in Los Angeles, she gained quite the greater good]].fan following and public support, with press immediately trying to interview her and people cheering support. Wonder Woman even tried to get Kate as her defense attorney after being indicted for killing Maxwell Lord because she had experience killing criminals and would be able to sympathize with the murder. Only Batman had voiced a clear dislike of her from the superhero end.



* [[VigilanteMan Vigilante Woman]]: Her character apart from being a lawyer in a nutshell. Her goal in life is to kill criminals who end up getting free from punishment by the law.

* SociopathicHero: At least a borderline sociopath. By DC superhero standards (also by normal-person standards), she has killed a fair number of people, [[spoiler: including her own father]], and never seemed to feel bad about it, instead believing other superheroes should follow her lead. It's no wonder she gets along so well with Comicbook/Huntress of all people.

* KarmaHoudini: It was seeing Copperhead become one of these that first inspired Kate to don the costume. Kate herself is one to an extent considering she's shown getting away with multiple accounts of murder and brutality while being fated to continue the behavior for years with her son. She's only been mildly admonished by heroes like Batman and supported by those like Huntress in the story.

Added DiffLines:

* HairTriggerTemper: Kate has this due to her cornucopia of issues. She often remarks that not having criminals to beat to a pulp makes her antsy and she smashed a stone statue to pieces simply because there was no one around to pummel.
