* Okay, this has been driving me crazy...in many stories its said that the Runaways are low on money. So how the heck did they afford the fantastic drug addiction that Victor had, ie, with a metal that's as rare as Vibranium!? To a lesser extent, how did Nico afford the plane ticket to Japan, in A-force: Hypertime? I can't imagine the douche looking relatives helped pay for it.

** From what I could gather from ''The Vision'', the Vibranium was apparently just laying around, and Chase, being Chase, didn't realize how valuable it actually was and thus let Victor use it, and the supply that they had lasted up until around ''ComicBook/SecretInvasion''. Of course, how his parents ever got their hands on Vibranium in the first place is still unexplained. As for Nico's trip to Japan, it's possible she just flew there under her own power or teleported or conjured up some manner of transportation.

* This isn't as much of a qualm with the plot as it is something this troper has had trouble with while reading the series. Is it determined whether Karolina's name is pronounced as "Ka-ro-LEE-na" or "Ka-ro-LIE-na?" My gut tells me it's the latter, seeing that her parents took the surname of [[spoiler: American actor JamesDean when they came to Earth,]] which probably means they wanted her name to sound more "American." But at one point, Molly calls her "Lina bean." It could be read as "LEE-na bean," as it would be a rhyming pun, but it could also be read as "LIE-na bean," for its closeness to "Lima bean." Wow, my [[YourHeadAsplode brain really hurts...]]

*** Andrea and Andreas had the added bonus of being modified and have a gift that needed each other, the Hayes seem to split up for a short period on panel, but given their bond might be telepathic compared to the Struckers they could still be in contact.




to:

** Gene does describe it as a "pureblood" union, which in Marvel mutant land one might assume means mutants only. As some children of mutants do have similar mutations in a parent-to-child relation, but rare to find mutants with the exact same gift outside of family. Gene and Alice may not be Brother-Sister, but the way they used the term "pureblood" would be consistent with a family that doesn't let their trees branch too far.




to:

** Traditions of course only apply to those who do not avert them. It may be uncommon, but certainly not without possibility they changed it to be Minoru at some point. Especially given the couple we are talking about are dark sorcerers who are in a plan to wipe out most of the world. Using a name outside of tradition doesn't seem like it would be a big deal to them.

Plus, if you've read Vaughn's other works you'll notice the man has an obsession with having Glasses wearing people die. ''YTheLastMan'' has that bespectacled Amazon leader get killed, ''ComicBook/ExMachina'' has a kid with glasses shoot himself, that one ''ComicBook/TomStrong'' story he did, has a bespectacled villainess jump out a window and die.

* Mutant powers are unique, with no two mutants being entirely the same, right? How the ever-loving fuck do Molly's parents have powers that are identical down to the letter, including the same glowy eye effect? It's also noteworthy that they look ''exactly'' alike with the same colour hair, eyes and skin tone. How?

** There's a theory going around that Gene and Alice might have been siblings, which might explain why they said they might have trouble having a child.

** Wait for explanations? Yes, sure, that would have fixed it all. "''You get it all wrong kids. We did not simply kill a girl. We are part of a secret plot that will destroy all humanity, sparing only you. Don't you understand? We did it all because we love you''". And surely Gert would reply, talking to the others: "''On the count of three. One, two, [[AttackAttackAttack attack page]]''"

** I assumed that this was to illustrate that YouCantFightFate doesn't apply here. That said her dead Avengers were the MC2 team which itself has been declared an alternate universe particularly after OneMoreDay.
