** While Juliet and India are very good marksmen they arenít exceptional. Almost all of them are in the top one third on-base, but there are many XCOM veterans who can still give them a good thumping, most notably Hotel Squad, Seiran's elite Powered Armored team.

* BeliefMakesYouStupid: Ryu believes this at least and sadly there is a lot of evidence to prove it. There are madmen within the Sirius Conspiracy who all but worship the aliens XCOM fight. The Thanagarians in the Space Hulk dimension had worshipped the 'old gods' ect.

--> '''Lathis''': Granted, we don't get to see too much of this, since by their very nature, X-Com opponents are impossible to take alive (for long). But one of the reasons we went with Titans into Xcom as opposed to Xcom into Titans is the fact that, after the first fight, all of the X-Com teams would likely be on the run from the Justice League after they mass scattered their first villain with hot plasma

--> '''Capnín Chryssalid''': Starfire was assumed to be under alien control. XCOM was called in because the PRC had just had a historic building destroyed (the clocktower), people were in a panic, and their own attempt to handle things had blown up in their face (the ambush). They know about Trenchards. They know that the Sirius Group not only had chemical weapons, but that they were willing to use them in terrorist attacks. ALL the Intel indicated that Starfire was an alien terror unit... except that she hadn't actually killed anyone. When Romeo Squad finally caught up to her, Herb could tell this. He still thought she was either an alien or a manufactured Trenchard ("one of Cologne's experiments"), but he could tell that she had no murderous or "killing" intention. He comments on this to her. But she is still an alien and she still needed to be subdued and interrogated. This is what XCOM does and so they subdued her and, when she spun a yarn that contradicted reality as they understood it, they mind probed her to get the real truth.

*** One of his most repeated usage of this trope that he has used since DarkTitans is passive aggressive combat. Ryoga would repeatedly insult Ranma to make himself feel better. The Titanís never took it seriously until [[WhatTheHellHero they found out that Terra did]]. In the XComverse every time something bad happened to him he would deliver a backhand insult to his either his counterpart or the others.

** Rage possesses the strongest ties to Father of all of Ravenís emotions. She was always filled with his hatred, filled to bursting with his fury. However once she entered the XComverse she was stripped of that fury and had to sustain herself only on the 'rage' of Raven herself who is not terribly prone to bouts of excessive emotion.

* FantasticRacism: While it may not seem like it at first this is ultimately averted in the XComverse as their hatred of the Mind stems from the fact that AliensAreBastards. Despite their initial drama X-Com holds no ill will towards Starfire. Unfortunately her unique situation makes it appear this way to her.

** The Trillarians, The Gordanians?, The Citadel?, The Psions? were all races that met their end by the Tamerean's for doing to them exactly what the Visitor's are doing to the humans in the XCOM Universe.

*** What makes this worse is that XComverse characters never trusted Ukyo while she wore the ring and made plans in the likely case she would betray them.
** Then there are the Titans themselves they repeatedly see the XCom characters as heartless due to the dark nature of the universe especially after Starfireís mind rape. Yet they see nothing wrong with allowing to Ryoga and Jinx to stay mentally compelled to love each other. They also show increasing apathy for the suffering of that universe.

* InsaneTrollLogic: The Titanís seem to thrive on this while in the XComverse especially Ryoga as literally every argument he gives in the story utilizes this trope. For example comparing Raven being DrunkOnTheDarkSide with X-ryoga fulfilling Akariís final request. He also seeís Ukyo being brainwashed by Tresspasser the same as Cyborg actively choicing to work for him.

** Yankee squad see XCOM as heartless and amoral not only do they get increasingly hypocritical and apathetic they constantly antagonize them (especially Jinx and Ryoga). XCOM on the other hand are shown to be far more understanding. While itís obvious they do not like the Titanís they are willing to put with far more of the Titanís actions then the Titanís are of theres.

** This is pretty much a given due to the Titans refusal to except that they are in a decidedly grey universe instead of the black and white universe they are familiar with. The biggest example is Akari. They were repeatedly warned that re-connecting her with the Alien Hive Mind was a bad idea. Even Akari herself stated that she did not want this to happen. Yet they just brushed it off and did it anyway seeing XCOM as heartless monsters for not doing it.

* LackOfEmpathy: The Titanís as a whole have shown a surprising amount of callousness to the suffering of those in the XCOM Universe but the cake really has to go Ryoga and Raven with their ItsAllAboutMe attitude.
** Raven status as the XCOM Universe's strongest psychic has completely gone to her head turning her into a SmallNameBigEgo to the point that on Azarath she purposely withheld information as she believed XCOM felt she was too important to let leave. However what really cements this is her TheReasonYouSuckSpeech to X-Ryoga which was essentially telling him that his suffering didnít matter because unlike with T-Ryoga she didnít benefit from it.
** Ryoga is arguably worse not only does he intentionally antagonize everyone he meets sowing discord within the rank of XCOM he has an an extreme case of MoralMyopia condemning actions as MoralEventHorizon when done to him or the titans but sees nothing wrong when he does it. When informed the titans actions had led to akira suffering a FateWorseThanDeath he replied so what at least he felt morally in the right for having done it.

** Their reliance on HeroInsurance seems to be the major cause of this as there are far more consequences in XCOM then there are in the DCAU. When they first arrived the Titans caused a lot of property damage and even injuries yet were surprised and even angry when authorities tried to apprehend them

** Starfire shows signs of this as well after her MindRape by XCOM Starfire has shown increasing signs of FantasticRacism to the point where she sounds remarkably similar to Val Yor such as referring to her fellow the good humans. However it comes to the head when it is found out that the Tamaranian had similar wars with the Gordanians, the Citadel, the Psions, and the Trillarians as XCOM and the aliens all of which ended in genocide. Yet she repeatedly calls XCOM out on their tactics even wondering if they are the good guys. you know sheíd be furious if anyone said the same thing about the Tamaranians and those four civilizations.
** Despite the hypocrisy Starfireís animosity with XCOM is more of a case of GreyAndGrayMorality however despite her anger at her MindRape she saw nothing wrong with allowing Ryoga and Jinx to stay coerced into loving each other. Jinx even called her out on this after she was cured.
** The Titanís refusal to except the HeroInsurance doesnít apply in the XCOMVerse as the LetsYouAndHimFight originally started due to the massive amounts of collateral damage caused by their entry into the world.
* MoralityPet: T-Ranma acts as this for Raven ever since arriving in the XCOMverse without an easy line of communication with him her nightmares have been getting worse and worse.

** However it is mostly caused by the Titans inability to except the fact that HeroInsurance no longer applies and that there are now consequences to their actions causing them to see XCOMís attempts at trying to reign them in as heartless and evil. For example their entry into the universe caused substantial collateral damage and even injuries the army trying to put a stop to them was considered inexcusable.

** Starfire and the XCOM universe. The reason the X-Com side is so big on humanity uber alles, in DCland, aliens range from evil to good, while in X-Comland, every alien species is malevolent. How the only way for humanity to survive predation is to band together, as there's no convenient superheroes about to save the world. Being a powerless experimental subjects for thousands of years has done terrible things to the collective subconscious of humanity. It might not end up being too different from what normal people feel in the DC universe. If nothing else then Starfire can relate to what it feels like to be a powerless experimental subject. Probably the avenue by which she eventually comes around.

** The Titanís come across as forced especially when they first entered the XCOM universe. For example a few readers felt that Starfire reflexively melting a police officers gun feels very forced. She is not trigger happy even under the worse conditions let alone as she was.

All of this despite the fact that she has only trained with Happosai for about two months.

* ProtagonistCenteredMorality: Jinxís various sue traits makes T-Ryoga a part of this trope. The major example is her status as the friend nobody likes. Jinxís is incredibly antagonistic with nearly everyone et Ryoga completely ignores this believing that everyone is just out to get her. It gets much worse in the XCOM universe where not only does this attitude put the Titanís lives in danger (i.e if XCOM refuses to work with them, or punish them for Jinxís actions) especially due to her its all about me mentality. the soldiers there can barely give Jinx more more than professional courtesy while she doesnít even bother with that, but still Ryoga takes her side.

** A few readers were surprised that XCOM were able to subdue the Titanís so easily as XCOM is exactly the kind of organization that pretty much every superhero team since... ever, stomp in their spare time. They might have more noble goals then most, but comics are filled to the brim with orginizations that are almost identical in character and nature, if not purpose. Forgetting that those organizations are keep sending black suited norms with an M-16 and expect them to face down Wolverines and Spiderman. NOT coordinated battle hardened, psionic, martial artist.

* SuperSerum: Back when the war started, and routine missions had a more than forty percent mortality rate, High Command had made the decision to encourage the medical division, flush from its development of the original ATRISK medikit, to invest some time and effort into optimization of existing manpower. The same teams that had developed drugs capable of selectively blocking pain receptors but providing no other physical side effects such as euphoria or chemical addiction, and reverse effects such as euphoria or chemical addiction, and reverse engineering Floater cybernetics, turned their expertise first to improved therapy for muscle regeneration due to plasma attacks... Optimizing training came soon after, with more tailored drugs to enhance strength, reflexes and endurance. Most military personnel entering XCOM were probably at what they considered to be their physical best. After SEAL or ALFA training, or the equivalent from a given UNETCO signatory country, one could hardly expect much additional improvement. Yet improve they did. Those who survived a few months in the field and in the PCF, found their strength and speed nearly doubling, commensurate to the effort put in.

** However XCOM arenít totally immune when Raven saved everyone after they were hit with a warp bubble Ukyo called her out for allowing it to happen in the first place.

** When it comes to firing a rifle Juliet and Indiaís accuracy is still very good, but not exceptional. Almost all of them are in the top one third on-base, but there were many XCOM veterans who could still give them a good thumpingÖ most notably the shell-heads in Hotel Squad, Seiran's elite Powered Armored team. None of them had the martial arts training to develop the same sort of superhuman reflexes, but they had years of experience and psionic augmentation.

** However this is partly addressed in the recently closed arc. One of the Green Lanterns (and in fact, a senior and well respected Lantern), specifically the one that died deep within Heresiarch, bore an uncanny resemblance to Sectoids. A resemblance that is remarked on for good reason. Though not stated definitely to be so, there could be a pre-Sectoid race within DC (the Greys). However, it would be the distant precursor stock to the Sectoids and Aquatoids we know. Perhaps, in the distant past between 65 and 100 million years ago, the Grey Race were prevented from undergoing the racial transformation or progrom that made them what they are in XCOM. If that divergence was caused by Green Lanterns, who do not exist in DC... well. It wouldn't be entirely unsupported.
