** There are simply [[TheWorldIsAlwaysDoomed too much hostile forces clogging up cities and wilderness alike at any given moment]] to pursue scientific advancement.

** There are simply [[TheWorldIsAlwaysDoomed too much many hostile forces clogging up cities and wilderness alike at any given moment]] to pursue scientific advancement.



** Amazing Girl's abilities and creations depend upon a replenishing resource. Too many attempting to use it would deplete it and leave everyone without it for a while. Worse, running low has additional dire consequences.



** She acquires a nemesis who was a law-abiding citizen until he went mad as a result of barely surviving a plague she could easily have prevented if she hadn't been so focussed on fighting crime. He's still sane enough to rub her nose in his origin story, and the number of infected who ''didn't'' survive.

** The creators despise superheroes as a concept, and want to "prove" that they're completely useless so as to puff up TheRealHeroes.

** Amazing Girl is shown what lies beyond the FourthWall by the AuthorAvatar of [[Creator/GrantMorrison Matt Garrison]], her current writer. While observing our world, she reads a story by of one of Garrison's contemporaries, [[Creator/GarthEnnis Greg McGuinness]], where he castigates superheroes who could, in-universe, solve "[[CreatorProvincialism real]] world" problems but don't. Then she reads an interview where McGuinness [[{{Hypocrite}} denounces the idea of superheroes solving "real world" problems as trivializing and cheapening them]]. Realizing she's faced with a catch-22, Amazing Girl becomes deeply depressed.

* '''Played For Laughs''': Amazing Girl isn't [[GeniusDitz all there despite her talents]]. While her heroic inventions work perfectly fine, all of her attempts at converting her technology to civilian use end predictably in hilarious disaster. Other scientists interviewing her are stymied by her [[CloudcuckooLander unique mind]]. Analyzing her inventions proves difficult due to being based on collections of kludges and hacks.

** Amazing Girl knows that providing her inventions would stunt mankind's true potential. If she were to provide them now technology would stagnate and that would lead to their extinction. Not interfering will cause much suffering for centuries but will make things far better on the millennium scale.



** Amazing Girl attempts to solve such problems despite her own intelligence and abilities being inadequate.
** Awful Girl deliberately provides technology with the goal of worsening real life problems as a side effect.



* '''Zig Zagged''': ???

to:

* '''Zig Zagged''': ???Zagged''': Amazing Girl is selective in what she does and does not supply owing to her [[BlueAndOrangeMorality odd ethos]]. She refuses to provide conventional weaponry to others even in dire circumstances due to a belief that it is morally wrong to wield weapons not developed by oneself. She is however completely fine with biological weapons, oddly enough considering them pacifism. She does freely share her powerful clean and safe energy technology. While she gives cures to bacteria and viruses and cybernetic technology she considers fighting cancer in others a morally wrong interference in the collective of cells.

** Amazing Girl's inventions simply aren't useful on the mundane level; What use has the average household for a timeship or a spaceship?
