When a character who has been speaking perfect, unaccented English (for whatever region he's in), gets revealed to be a spy or covert operative from some other country, from that point on, he instantly reverts to a thick accent from his native language. A character revealed as a robot will suddenly switch to a classic "robot" speech pattern.

* ''ComicBook/XFactor:'' Siryn (also of X-Force fame) normally speaks without any discernible accent, so much so that the only way to know she was Irish would be if the reader already knew. During the fight with Cortex ([[spoiler:A heavily altered version of one of Jamie Madrox's dupes, whom she's already violently angry with]]) she gets so mad, she starts "getting her Irish up".
