* '''Reconstructed''': Captain Awesome and Amazing Girl can be really soft and don't deal out the tough love/justice that they should- so this guy does it for them.

** Dark Blood is not a [[AxCrazy random psychopath]],but a NobleDemon tormented by his HorrorHunger, and so he's kept on the team in the hopes of finding a cure, or [[KidWithTheLeash at least a way to surround him with capable combatants to reign him in.]]
** Dark Blood is with the heroes in the first place because [[NotSoDifferent he ultimately finds them more to his liking]] [[NotSoSimilar than his fellow villains.]] His FaceHeelTurn is short lived, and he [[HesBack announces his return]] by [[DestinationDefenestration throwing Mystery Murder out a window.]]
**Dark Blood, while still contrasting with [[TheCape the rest of the team,]] is an EnigmaticMinion that frequently returns to the heroes' service [[WildCard whenever it suits his greater goal.]] As such, he is always accepted back, though never truly trusted, and they allway know his aid is temporary.

** A bunch of nerds play a tabletop RPG, and most of them play heroic characters. At the start of a new campaign, one of them rolls an evil character, causing uneasiness in the group. Ultimately, the player playing the evil character touches the {{trigger}} of another player, resulting in real life drama.
