Added DiffLines:

* TheHeart: Lampshaded. Gert cannot, for the life of her, understand as to why the group fell apart after her death, stating that she was the appendix of the group. Both Nico and Chase correct her - Chase is the appendix, not her.

* AllYourPowersCombined - In the final battle of the original series, [[spoiler:Alex ends up in control of Chase's fire-blasting gauntlets, Nico's [[MagicWand Staff of One]], ''and'' Gertrude's psychic connection to Old Lace. All of which would have been much more helpful if he weren't TheMole. He had no way to take Molly or Karolina's inborn abilities, but it's still a pretty impressive accomplishment for somebody with no powers of his own.]]

** 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, [[AvengersArena Murderworld]] and AvengersUndercover going undercover), but we also find out what happened to the rest of the kids: [[ 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.]]

* ObfuscatingStupidity: Molly acts like a six-year-old most of the time, but every once in a while she reveals herself to be much, much more mature (she is, in fact, twelve). For the most part, her weak little girl persona is an act to get attention. In one battle with Alex's father, he confronts her with it:

* WriterOnBoard: Rainbow Rowell has made no secret of her preference for the original run and distaste for subsequent runs. Consequently, the first arc is all about the original team coming back together, with new characters like Klara not even getting a mention.
