* Julie -- age 10 original version, age 12 all-ages version -- power of ''lightspeed'' or "velocity". She could fly at great speed (leaving a colored trail behind) called herself '''Lightspeed'''

* Katie -- age 5 original version, age 8 all-ages version -- power of ''Energy''. She could turn matter into energy, absorb this, and fire it at opponents, called herself '''Energizer'''

* GenderEqualEnsemble: the core team, which consists of 2 boys and 2 girls. Averted if you count SixthRanger Franklin in as well, in which case it becomes a TwoGirlsToATeam.
* GirlsHaveCooties: in the original series, Jack has this attitude. For example, in issue 44 Gosamyr flirts with him, which freaks Jack out. In the all-ages series, Katie has this attitude towards boys.

* ArbitrarySkepticism: All over the first few issues. News of a UFO is readily dismissed despite several alien invasions by that point. Also, perhaps most {{egregious}}, is the fact that at one point Jack dismisses the idea that his new-found ability to understand the Snarks' language must mean Friday built translators into their costumes as "[[ThisIsReality too much like science fiction]]"--while he's a [[SuperSmoke cloud-boy]] floating next to an alien spaceship.

* ArtShift: Compare how the pack was drawn in the original series, back in the 1980's, to how they are drawn in more recent appearances (especially the all-ages series).

* NamesTheSame: Their dad may be ''a'' Professor Power, but he's not the ''supervillain'' named Professor Power. Anthony Power has yet to cross paths with Power Pack.

The series was about the four children of one Prof. Power, a scientist who had invented an antimatter generator. However, a horse-like alien named Whitemane tried to warn him that a similar machine had blown up his homeworld. Unfortunately, "Whitey" (as the kids named him) was mortally wounded by his enemies, the alien Snarks, and couldn't prevent them from kidnapping the children's parents.

There was a failed {{Pilot}} for a television series version, but it was never aired in the US, though it did appear on overseas channels and has circulated as a bootleg among fans for years. As of now, Marvel's new owner, WaltDisneyPictures, is wondering if this kid team would be an obvious property to develop for a film. Considering they made ''Disney/BigHero6'', another obscure Marvel superhero team, into a film, there's a chance it could happen.

Power Pack would not receive their own comic until November 1, 2017, as a part of ComicBook/MarvelLegacy. Time will tell if this one-shot becomes an ongoing series.
