** Major Victory actively squashes anyone else becoming a hero because he's built his self-image around the idea that he's TheOnlyOne capable of defending Domino City. He feels next to useless in his civilian identity; being the city's champion makes him feel like he's accomplishing something ''great'' with his life. After forcibly depowering Mary one times too many, she [[WhatTheHellHero calls him out on this]], sending him into a HeroicBSOD as he confronts the idea that he's been hurting the city by denying it other defenders all this time.
** Major Victory prevents Mary from keeping her powers because he doesn't want her to get herself killed trying to fight crime. She's eventually murdered by a thug whom she could have defeated with ease using any of the powers she'd gained in the past.
