Fanfic: Ultimate Re-Imaginings
Found on fanfiction.net, Ultimate Re-Imgainings are three stories all done in the same timelines and same universe, that is, the Marvel universe.

  • Ultimate Blaze: Heroes Unlimited [1] is a fusion of Marvel and Yu-Gi-Oh!, starring Joey Wheeler as the main character and with his own supporting cast. In this, Joey is a mutant and the Yu-Gi-Oh! game does not exist, but everything else(i.e, magic and such) does still exist.
  • Ultimate Spider-Girl: Zero To Hero[2] is the most 'normal' fusion of the Spider-Man universe getting flipped on it's head as Peter is replaced by his Rule 63 counterpart Perenna Parker.
  • Ultimate Superwoman: Transciendience [3] is a fusion of Superman and DC Comics with Superman being replaced by his counterpart Lita Kent.


Provides Examples Of:

  • Abandoned Warehouse: Joey lets Sofen take him to the warehouse where she's keeping his sister, step-mother and her friend.
  • Abusive Parents: Joey’s father.
  • Academic Athlete: Harry.
  • Accidental Kidnapping: The entire thing with Joey moving in with Clint is treated as this.
  • Accidental Public Confession: Clint accidentally said he did beat Joey's dad.
  • Action Heroine: Spider-Girl, Superwoman.
  • Action Survivor: Joey.
  • Adults Are Useless: Joey’s overall opinion of adults, except for Jessica and Clint that is.
  • Affectionate Gesture to the Head: Blair got to run her fingers through Joey's hair once, the only problem being he didn't know she had a crush on him and he was ''asleep''.
  • Affectionate Nickname: 'Perry' for Perenna, and 'Ren' for Serenity.
  • Ascended Extra: Serenity and Clint.
  • Asleep for Days: Joey goes through this twice, once after his fight with Sofen and the second when he got kidnapped.
  • Alcoholic Parent: Joey’s father.
  • Alliterative Name: Perenna Parker.
  • All Just a Dream: 'Real World'.
  • All Love Is Unrequited: Andrea likes Joey, but he isn't too interested in her in any romantic sense. Natasha is strongly implied to like Clint, but just like Joey doesn't see her as anything but a friend. Max and Eddie both like Perenna, but she's too blind to see it. In two of these cases, things got very, very bad.
  • All Men Are Perverts: Subverted somewhat as Jessica states this is one of the reasons Joey’s her favorite students-because he doesn't look at her.
  • Alpha Bitch: Alexis Rhodes for Domino High, also doubles as a Rich Bitch. It also comes to no surprise that Andrea plans to kill her.
    • Kaiba is the gender-flipped Alpha Brat as he is continuously antagonistic towards Joey.
  • Alone with the Psycho: Joey 'willingly' went along with Sofen to keep his family safe and as soon as he realized she was going to kill them all, he dropped the act.
  • Alternate Universe
  • A Man Is Not a Virgin: Subverted in Joey’s case as he won’t even look at a woman let alone think about that.
  • Ambiguously Human: Joey.
  • Amplifier Artifact: The ring that gave Sofen her powers.
  • An Ice Person: Killer Frost.
  • Animals Hate Him: Inverted as Cheshire actually tried to attack Serenity at one point.
  • Annoying Younger Sibling: Subverted. Joey cares very much about his sister.
  • A Pupil of Mine Until He Turned to Evil: Or rather until that pupil turned good.
  • Armor-Piercing Question: Taking into account The Cobbler's Children Have No Shoes example below, this question is very simple and ties into that, and it also renders Joey completely speechless.
    Loki: What good a guardian can he be if [Clint] can't even protect you properly?
  • Asshole Victim: Joey's biological father, who is killed by Joey's other biological parent.
  • Astonishingly Appropriate Interruption: In 'Playing With Fire,' Joey thinks about the beat up old car Clint picks him up at school in, just as another student yells out the state of the car.
  • Aura Vision: Serenity.
  • Axe Crazy: Andrea Rourke.
  • Babies Make Everything Better: Lita and Perenna play this straight while it is subverted in Joey's case because his birth did not make everything better between his father and step-mother.
  • Back to School: Joey has had several incidents of being away from school before going back, only to be injured again.
  • Badass Normal: Both Joey and Perenna argue about who is more badass, Elektra or Hawkeye after Joey tells Perenna that his 'psuedo-guardian' is Hawkeye.
  • Batman Gambit: Joey tried to pull one off as he let Sofen lead him away since he figured someone would notice he was missing. It never follows through as Joey is eventually forced to save himself and the hostages she had and Serenity calls the cops when they’re freed.
  • Because You Were Nice To My Son: The reason Clint thinks he's still alive is because of this since Loki could have killed him while he was in his holding cell.
  • Benched Hero: It's lampshaded at various points how unhealthy it is that Joey is in the hospital more than a normal person would be.
  • Beneath the Mask: Joey tries to act like a ‘dumb blonde’ to hide the fact he has his own issues, particularly with his guilt for thinking that he should be dead instead of almost everyone else he cares about being dead, not to mention his other issues, but those belong in their owntropes.
  • Beauty Is Never Tarnished: Averted as Joey still has bruising and has to wear a cast over a long period of time.
    • Subverted with Emma as well as her face is going to bruise from her fight with Natasha.
  • Betty and Veronica: A completely delusional example is how Andrea views the dynamic between Téa (Betty), Alexis (Veronica), and Joey (Archie), while she saw herself as the Third-Option Love Interest. How she intended to solve this is downright terrifying.
    • This could also be the reason Black Widow went after Emma Frost after Clint accidently called her by her first name. The use of the first name thought was merely to show he was getting over his initial hostility and it got taken the wrong way.
  • Believing Their Own Lies: Téa, to the point that she blamed Joey for winding up in the hospital.
  • Big Applesauce: Like with the canon material, most of the things happen in New York.
  • Big Fancy House: The Avenger's Mansion.
  • Big NO: Joey lets out one in 'Over The Edge.'
  • Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: Téa, or at least when Alexis is concerned.
  • Bi the Way: Perenna.
  • Blessed with Suck: Joey likes his powers, but even he knows that there are rather severe drawbacks to two of them. His ‘Know-It-All’ ability will make him sick if he uses it too long, and his technology controlling ability is tied directly to his emotions. And as of now his control of his powers is gone and he has to learn how to control them all over again.
  • Blondes are Evil: Karla Sofen.
  • Blood from the Mouth: How Joey knows that something is really wrong with him after knocking Sofen out with a head-butt.
  • Blow You Away: Windfall.
  • A Boy and His X: Joey and Cheshire.
  • Boyish Short Hair: Joey's hairstyle.
  • Brainy Brunette: Perenna Parker.
  • Broken Bird: Perenna after the death of both her guardians, but instead of becoming the typical cynic, she still tried to be badass, but hid her despair behind false cheer and snarking. Gradually though she got better.
    • Joey, oh Joey.
  • Brown Eyes: Joey’s eyes before they turned amber. Perenna Parker. Serenity.
  • By The Hair: Joey's father grabs his hair and slams his head down on the window and dashboard while Lori grabs Lita's wig and threatened to pull it off.
  • Can't Stand Them, Can't Live Without Them: Serenity wonders this about Joey and why he even bothers with his friends. He explains in a later chapter that while he may keep his distance and not let them see the real him; he also acknowledges he’d be like Kaiba if he just dismissed them.
  • Cassandra Truth: Joey knows that telling anyone that his father is abusive would be dismissed, and when he finally does say that his father almost killed him, none of his friends believe him. Subverted in a way though that Serenity seems to know, and Clint actually tried to do something about it, although it backfired both times.
  • Celibate Hero: In 'Perfect Poison,' it's implied that Clint has never been with anyone since his wife was killed.
  • The Cheerleader: Sally Avril, and Liz Allan are explicitly stated to be cheerleaders, though of the two of them, Blair and Perenna say Liz is the nicer one.
  • The Chew Toy: Joey to a painful degree.
  • Cinderella Circumstances: While his 'father' didn't die per say, this is inverted as when Joey goes to live with Clint, he is treated much better and anything he does is because he wants to do it.
  • Clear Their Name: When Clint is being held in the police station, Murdock is sent to represent him and it becomes apparent that Clint was framed as he would have eaten the poison if Perenna hadn't come over instead.
  • The Cobbler's Children Have No Shoes: A tragic example as while he is a superhero, Clint couldn't save his family and through 'Ultimate Blaze' he is never the one to save Joey while in costume or otherwise.
  • Comically Missing the Point: When Jennifer Walters tells Clint and Joey that she is Buck's lawyer and has left something for each other them in his will, instead of being surprised that the man has a lawyer, there both surprised he left a will. Even Jennifer lampshades it.
  • Compressed Hair: Serenity piles her hair into her hat when she goes out.
  • Cooldown Hug: Natasha gives one of these to Clint after he blows up at the doctor, though this may have been a ploy because it's implied that she's the one who planted the rat poison on him when she did that.
  • Cool Big Sis: Jessica Drew; Joey even describes her as this word for word.
  • Corporate-Sponsored Superhero: The Avengers.
  • Crusading Widower: Clint.
  • Crush Blush: Max whenever he's around Perenna.
  • Curtains Match The Windows: Joey as he's got yellow hair and eyes.
  • Cute Mute: Lyla Lerrol.
  • Cute Machines: Lita certainly thinks Kelex applies to this.
  • Cynicism Catalyst: Clint's family for him, and it's shown he also considers this his My Greatest Failure.
  • Daddy DNA Test: Joey has a maternity test done to see if his step-mother was his mother, while in 'Far From Home' Serenity is presented a DNA test showing the result of who her father is.
  • Deadpan Snarker: When Joey goes through his ‘I accept that things will blow up if I show emotion’ phase as he believed he could never control his powers, everything he says becomes this.
  • Deep Sleep: Joey went into a week long coma after his fight with Sofen.
  • Designated Girl Fight: Between Natasha and Emma. Though this is pointedly not a Cat Fight as Natasha is quite clearly trying to kill her opponent and doesn’t hold back.
  • Distracted by My Own Sexy: Perenna the first time she sees herself in her Spider-Girl costume.
  • Distressed Dude: Joey is an interesting case, because while he does register as a Designated Victim, he always saves himself from the immediate danger presented.
  • Disappeared Dad: Joey’s father is this for a time until he shows up to get Clint sent to jail, never mind the fact Joey vocally protested this as he was dragged away.
  • Divine Parentage: Joey.
  • Does Not Know Her Own Strength: Perenna accidently ripped a part of the door to the school off and broke Flash's arm when she tried to get him to leave her alone.
  • Do Not Call Me Paul: Lita only referred to herself as 'Elita' once and then insisted she be called by her nickname, and the only ones who ever refer to her as Lor-El is Kelex and Lyla, both robots.
    • Joey is also par for being two for two since only two people ever call him by his actual name.
  • Don't Wake the Sleeper: Clint warns Blair not to wake Joey when she checks on him for Serenity.
  • Dumb Blonde: Joey subverts this as he is actually pretty smart. Though he just acts dumb.
  • Dramatic Irony: Joey has no idea that the place he's staying at is now under heavy scrutiny or that he's got a crazed Yandere.
  • Drill Sergeant Nasty: Buck.
  • Embarrassing First Name: Lita’s first name is actually Elita and she finds this incredibly embarrassing since it’s the name of a toy, opting to call herself by her nickname instead.
  • Entitled to Have You: How Eddie is revealed to feel about Perenna.
  • Everyone Has Standards: When Flash was willing to beat up Perenna in a crowded hallway, the other jocks even thought this was going to far. The exchange?
    Kenny: Dude, you can't hit a girl, that ain't cool.
    Flash: It's not a girl, it's Parker.
  • Evil Redhead: Andrea Rourke and Natasha Romanov.
  • Evil Uncle: Though it's a bit of a blink and you'll miss it scenario, but way back in 'First Blood prt 2' Barney revealed to Buck that he was going to kill both Clint and Joey, and if the adoption follows through, then the man really will be the boy's uncle.
  • Exact Words: ‘No son of mine’ turned out to be literal.
  • Finger-Licking Poison: The poison that sent both Perenna and Joey to the hospital was in their dinner.
  • Flashback Fail: Joey has Emma help him clear up a memory to find out who he's been seeing everywhere after realizing that the features were hazy and seemed altered.
  • Fluffy the Terrible / Deathbringer the Adorable: A weird mix of both is Cheshire, a small dog. Though Joey only called the dog that is because he growls and snaps his teeth at everyone, hence the name. The vicious part is because he actually attacks Joey as he was getting in the way of him trying to get at Serenity.
  • Foundling Tale: Lita herself is this as is Joey.
  • Freak Lab Accident: How Perenna got her powers.
  • From Nobody to Nightmare: Andrea started off as a relatively unknown character before going completely off the deep end and having several murders under her belt . Not surprising the chapter is called 'Over The Edge.'
  • Gender-Blender Name: Blair, Whitney.
  • Girl Posse: Alexis, Jasmine and Mindy are one for Joey's school, and the most prominent thing they did was pick on Andrea, which no doubt added on to her problems.
  • Give Her A Normal Life: The reason that Madam Masque gave Blair to Claire was implied to be this.
  • The Glasses Gotta Go: Perenna.
  • Glowing Eyes: Joey.
  • Grumpy Old Man: Buck Chisholm. Though Joey substitutes ‘grumpy’ with ‘grouchy.’
  • Green Eyes: Jessica.
  • Gilded Cage: Though not a traditional type of confinement, the place Joey is stuck in does meet all his needs; it's just boredom he thought he'd die from, not to mention if he went to sleep he'd end up back in his Lotus-Eater Machine. Nor does it help matters that Joey admits if Clint could have gotten away with it, he would have put Joey in some kind of 'cage' as well.
  • Guilt Complex: Joey, Perenna, and Lita.
  • Guilty Pleasures: Joey admits to liking Kesha songs when Clint hears a song coming from his computer.

  • Heroic Bastard: Joey.
  • High School Rejects: Joey and Perenna.
  • Hopeless Suitor: Max for Perenna and Andrea for Joey.
  • Hot for Student: Karla wrongfully assumes this is the relationship between Jessica and Joey since they have quite a friendly relation.
    • Karla herself for Joey, though it's made creepier by the fact she tries to kill him and implies she's going to do horrible things to him for getting her arrested.
  • Hot Teacher: Jessica.
  • How Do I Shot Web?: Soon enough, Joey, soon enough.
  • Huge Guy, Tiny Girl: Eddie and Perenna of the non-romantic variety.
  • Human Alien: Lita Kent.
  • I Am Very British: Emma Frost.
  • I Can't Believe a Guy Like You Would Notice Me: Done in a double-subverted Gender Flip as Alexis tried to invoke this with Joey, her later thoughts revealing she just wants to use him for her own means, Joey turned down an invite to her party because his thoughts showed he wanted to go to his sister's party instead.
  • I Can't Sense Their Presence: Joey grows worried when he realizes Clint's thoughts have been blocked from him.
  • I Don't Want to Ruin Our Friendship: The reason Perenna won't pursue a relation with either Eddie or Mary Jane.
  • I Have Your Sister: Sofen shows Joey a picture of a tied up Serenity and he goes with her quietly.
  • I Lied: Sofen's says this in response to Joey's disbelief.
  • Illegal Guardian: Clint is this, simply because it wasn’t ‘official.’ Apparently verbal consent doesn't count.
  • Immune to Bullets: Need it even be said?
  • Incompatible Orientation: Lita doesn't understand why Kenny won’t leave her alone as she bats for the other team.
  • Insufferable Genius: Clint described Stark as this.
  • Interrupted Suicide: It’s implied that one of the firemen saved Joey before he could let himself die.
  • Improbable Aiming Skills: Clint, Joey, Buck and Barney.
  • I Will Punish Your Friend for Your Failure: Sofen gives a variance of this trope after kidnapping Joey's family and threatened to kill them if he didn't come quietly.
  • Jerk Jock: Flash.
  • Just Friends: Clint sees this as the relation between him and Natasha. As it turned out, she's Not Good With Rejection
  • Just Ignore It: One of the two things Joey is sure that the human nature consists of.
  • Kid Hero: Both Joey and Perenna are 15.
  • Kick the Dog: The entire reason both Parkers had to die was to pour salt into Perenna’s wounds.
  • Knight Templar Parent: While not biologically related, though it is stated that Joey sees Clint as his father than the drunk he had to live with, this is arguably what everyone is worried about Clint becoming if he was allowed to adopt Joey, even though a lack of a little piece of paper hasn't stopped some of extreme tendencies from showing, like beating up said drunk and abusive parent or nearly going to kill a woman who'd caused Joey to be put into his coma. And that's not even mentioning he has every reason to worry about Joey's safety after what happened to his family
  • Known Only by Their Nickname: Lita's actual name is Elita, and Joey's name is Joseph.
  • Kuudere: Joey is strongly a Type A as he really doesn't let people see what he doesn't want them too and Jessica is a Type A as well.
  • Lamarck Was Right: Considering how powerful Joey is and very well could be, this definitely applies to him.
  • Laser-Guided Amnesia: Clint has had his memory taken away twice and he's only starting to realize something might be wrong, completely having to feel angry at the news he should already know.
  • Last Name Basis: Everyone at Perenna's school calls her 'Parker.'
  • Law of Inverse Fertility: Mrs. Wheeler wanted a child, her husband didn't and had an affair to make sure he didn't, but that backfired and he got one, leaving the woman bitter about raising a child she resented. And when she got her chance to have one of her own…
  • Leave No Witnesses: Sofen's solution to having to deal with the hostages after she plans on killing Joey.
  • Like Brother and Sister: Perenna and Harry.
  • Like a Son to Me: Joey to Clint.
  • Longing Look: Blair to Joey, though this is played for an intentional creepy vibe when Blair finally meets Joey and their Held Gaze only happens when he wakes up and catches her watching him sleep. Lampshaded by Blair herself:
    Blair paused and thought there was something intensely creepy about how she was thinking, even for a hormonal teenager with a crush on her best friend’s step-brother.
  • Loony Friends Improve Your Personality: The reason why Joey seems to even want to be around them when he's not ignoring them.
  • Lonely Rich Kid: It seems that Kaiba is willingly this as he doesn't even sit with the other rich kids.
  • Lotus-Eater Machine: All of 'Real World' was created to be Joey's perfect little world in an attempt to keep him out of the actual real world. It backfired because he just couldn't let himself go.
  • Love at First Sight: Blair fell in love with Joey the moment she saw him, though because this particular character moment showed him in the most flattering way possible to her.
    • Joey also gained a crush on Spider-Girl when he saw her for the first time. Though given how he is, this is debatable.
    • Andrea for Joey as he was the first person she could touch without burning. It ended up with sending her on a Sanity Slippage into the Yandere side of love.
  • Love Hungry: Alexis showed an odd amount of offense simply because Joey didn't want to go to her birthday party.
  • Love Makes You Crazy: Andrea Rourke, full stop.
  • Luke, I Am Your Father: After entering Clint's mind, Joey prods him to reveal who the person he sees through his eyes is. It turns out to be Loki.
    • Serenity also gets this when she learns her father is Dr. Doom.
  • Luminescent Blush: Perenna blushed like this when she first met Mary Jane and then when she met Superwoman.
  • Mad Love: Andrea towards Joey, as he notices something is up when she visits him in the hospital with flowers. Not all that disturbing, until her POV comes along and she starts to snap even more. Her crush is also painfully aware of her affections, thouhg he quite honestly doesn't want a relationship with anyone.
  • Making a Splash: New Wave.
  • Mauve Shirt: Téa.
  • Meddling Parents: Subverted in Joey’s case. His father didn’t even care that Joey had learned archery from a supervillain.
  • Mega Crossover: Yu-Gi-Oh!, Spider-Man and DC Comics all mixed up into one universe.
  • Meganekko: Serenity, though this is debatable as she is going blind, and Lita Kent.
  • Men Don't Cry: Subverted as Joey does indeed cry when Buck died.
  • A Mind Is a Terrible Thing to Read: Subverted as part of his training, Emma has Joey read the minds of a group of people.
  • Misery Builds Character: If Joey is allowed a breather moment, something bad is going to happen to him later.
  • Misplaced Accent: Jessica’s English accent.
  • Misogyny: Joey stated that he would be this if he didn’t have certain females in his life to subvert it.

  • Mysterious Backer: Blair is revealed to have paid for Murdock to represent Clint to pay back for Joey saving her life.
  • Muggle Best Friend: Lena to Lita, and Blair to Serenity.
  • Muggle Foster Parents: Though by no means normal, Clint is human and his charge is decidedly not.
  • Never Say "Die": Subverted and played with as shown when Loki told Joey that he "Took care of the boy's father," the other immediately knew what he actually meant.
  • New Child Left Behind: This was done intentionally in Serenity's case, but a DNA test still had to be done to make sure.
    • On the flipside, this was done unintentionally in Joey's case, as his father didn't know about him until he was left with him nine months later.
  • New York City: Domino City is actually integrated to be a district in New York for this story.
  • Noodle Incident: Whether it's trauma or not, Joey never questions Clint about what Buck had meant when he said to apologize for shooting Clint in the arm.
  • Normally, I Would Be Dead Now: Joey himself is amazed at the fact he managed to survive as long as he does with how much damage he sustains.
  • Not Blood Siblings: Averted as while Joey and Serenity are not related, their relationship is purely platonic.
  • Not Good With Rejection: Natasha went Type B Yandere on Clint when he rejected her by poisoning the meal he was going to eat with Joey. Only when it backfired she framed him for the poisoning and tried to ultimately kill him.
  • Not So Different: Joey discovers this horrifying (to him anyway) revelation between him and Kaiba when he goes back to school after being in the hospital.
  • Not-So-Safe Harbor: In 'Making A Splash,' this is where the showdown between the Masters of Disaster, Spider-Girl, and Superwoman happens.
  • Papa Wolf: Even before Clint became Joey’s legal father, he beat up Joey’s actual father for putting him in the hospital. The event served to cement Joey’s unwavering faith in Clint as a result.
  • Parental Abandonment: Joey’s mother did this, as Joey states she only wanted his sister, not him.
  • Parental Betrayal: Joey's biological father sold him to pay off a debt.
  • Parents Know Their Children: Clint definitely knows Joey.
  • Parental Neglect: Though there never seen, Andrea Rourke's parents are implied to be this.
  • Parental Substitute: Clint is this to Joey.
  • Parents as People: Though Blair Flannigan obviously thinks her father is something worse, Tony Stark falls into this trope, what with how they actually interact to show he really is trying to be a parent; he's just not very good at it.
  • Pedo Hunt: The second Clint even suspected that Sofen was hurting Joey like this he was all for going to kill her, and was actually about to when he saw the condition she put him in. It’s implied that Joey never actually told Clint about the kiss though.
  • Person of Mass Destruction: Lita.
  • Playing with Fire: Joey’s pyrokinesis.
  • The Philosopher: Joey to some extent as a side effect of his Know-It-All power enable him to understand and question things, including giving him the ‘ability’ to be more philosophical.
  • Popularity Power: An odd subversion as Joey actually lives with the Avengers, yet the only one regularly shown is Clint, and that's because their pretty much father and son, and the other's absences can be justified as Joey plainly states he tries to avoid spending any time around the others.
  • Power Incontinence: Joey cannot feel anything without the tech around him (most notably the lighting fixtures) reacting to his mood. This is the main reason he worries about becoming the Stoic.
  • Power Limiter: Joey becomes sick if he tries to know more than he’s supposed to. And the more mental parts of his abilities won’t activate unless he’s looking in a reflective surface as the only way to use them is to, in a way, use it on himself.
  • The Power of Hate: Joey's pyro kinesis is literally fueled by his hatred.
  • The Power of the Sun: Lita is solar powered.
  • Psycho Psychologist: Joey realizes this about the school counselor Dr. Sofen when he has to take sessions with her on orders of the principal. Then again, he’s always suspected this about her.
  • Puberty Superpower: Serenity's powers activated when she was 13.
  • Purely Aesthetic Glasses: Lita's.
  • Oblivious to Love: Joey seems to be this at first, but in 'Far From Home' he actually is aware of the fact his and Andrea's friendship is starting to take a different route, one he's not very comfortable with.
  • Offing the Offspring: Joey’s father came very close to doing this before Joey set the apartment on fire.
  • Offstage Villainy: In 'Shot To Pieces' it is implied that Loki killed Joey's father, but it's never confirmed until later on.
  • Ominous Walk: Sofen toward Joey after he had locked her in a room.
  • One Phone Call: Inverted as Clint points out that he was the one who got called when he asks for his one phone call.
  • Only in It for the Money: The reason that Perenna participates in the female wrestling tournament is because she needed to pay a hospital bill.
  • Open Mouth, Insert Foot: Tony has a tendency to do this when he talks with Blair and they seem to be about to connect, only for him to brush it off with a comment that leaves Blair angrier than before, ultimately resulting in her saying she hated him and then when they seem to make up, he does it again. Blair even lampshades it.
    Blair: Well, that was another moment you just ruined right there...we were finally starting to talk, and you do that; you always do that.
  • Ordinary High-School Student: Joey and Perenna.
  • Overprotective Dad: Justified as Clint is actually afraid of Joey dying and his more overbearing tendencies are a result of this.
  • Punctuated! For! Emphasis!: "I...am...not...a...knock off!"
  • Raised by Humans: Joey, Lita.
  • Recurring Extra: Yugi, Téa, Tristan, and Jessica.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: Joey, when he snapped after his biological father admitted to selling him to pay off his own debt. Arguably also Superpowered Evil Side as well since he wasn't in control of himself at the time.
  • Red-Headed Stepchild: Joey might be blond, but the situation is the same as he really is a stepchild.
  • Renowned Selective Mentor: To help with Joey's mental powers, which quite admittedly are dangerous because of his Power Incontinence, Emma Frost was chosen to help him. Though it's also revealed in the meeting from Emma herself that she was only selected because she wasn't busy.
  • Red Shirt: Téa's mother and Joey's father.
  • Reformed Criminal: Buck.
  • Rescue Romance: It's one-sided, but Blair blushes and even helped Clint out for Joey anonymously ever since he saved her from Sofen.
  • Revenge Before Reason: Though he's always talked out of it, except for the first time, Clint is always quick to make threats against those who hurt or try to hurt Joey.
  • Revenge by Proxy: Sofen kidnapped Joey's step-mother, sister and her friend to get back at him for talking about her criminal behavior and planned on killing him for getting her arrested; making it worse by her not even knowing if it was him specifically who talked. Talk about Disproportionate Retribution.
  • Robot Girl: Lyla Lerrol.
  • Romantic Two-Girl Friendship: Perenna and Mary Jane's friendship is shaping up to be this, and as of 'Frost Bite' Lita and Lori subvert this after the later leaves for home.
  • Rule 63: Lita Kent and Perenna Parker.
  • Sacrificial Lamb: Buck.
  • Safety Worst: With all the things Joey gets up to, and how he's always getting hurt, Clint's over reactiveness is practically justified.
  • She Cleans Up Nicely: Perenna.
  • Shrinking Violet: Andrea Rourke and Serenity Wheeler.
  • Shouldn't You Stop Stealing?: Both Joey and Clint feel this about Buck -posthumously.
  • Sink or Swim Fatherhood: An interesting case as Blair's adopted by her aunt, but her father still seems to try and be a part of her life. She's only reluctant because he spent most of her existence not knowing about her, and even then he didn't want anything to do with her.
  • Skirt over Slacks: Superwoman wears tights under the skirt part of her costume.
  • Slasher Smile: Sofen all throughout 'Greater Need Than Mine,' to which Joey finds unsettling.
  • The Sleepless: Joey when he gets kidnapped, because even if the prison he was in didn't negate the need for sleep, he knew he'd end right back up in his dream world.
  • Smitten Teenage Girl: Andrea, and probably Alexis to a lesser extent.
  • Sophisticated as Hell: Both Kelex and Lyla call 'Miss Lor' even when she insists that they don't have to.
  • Special Person, Normal Name: Being a borderline Tyke Bomb and having a lot of raw power with an implied Superpowered Evil Side while being a Half-Human Hybrid...and his name is Joey.
    • Lita, Serenity, and Perenna are all subversions as while they have powers and or fight crime, their names are certainly not 'normal.'
  • Stacy's Mom: Gender Flipped when meeting Clint for the first time, Perenna blushed and told Joey that after the man had left, she didn't expect him to look so young or hot. Joey's facial reaction says Deadpan Snarker, but his verbal response said he was squicked, even more so when Perenna insisted this assumption.
  • Statuesque Stunner: Superwoman.
  • Straight Gay: Lita Kent.
  • Stepford Smiler: Joey is horrifyingly enough mostly a Type B as he will act nice on the outside, but on the inside he’s a complete mess. He’s mostly afraid that since he has to play The Stoic to keep his powers in check he will completely become this. The only people who really seems to see the real emotional state he’s constantly in is Serenity as that is her power.
  • Stepford Snarker: Clint, as Serenity reveals that the man is always angry and depressed all the time.
  • Stockholm Syndrome: Joey treats being forced to stay in the Avenger's Mansion as this, as he clearly makes it known that he doesn't want to be there and the only reason he stays at all is because he's sure he'd get dragged back.
  • Sugary Malice: In 'Over The Edge,' Andrea is unsettling sweet throughout her murder of Téa and her mother and even giggles afterwards. She didn't even need to kill the other, she just did it For the Evulz.
  • Super Intelligence: Joey and Perenna.
  • Take That Kiss: Spider-Girl gives one to Windfall on the cheek, though she only did it as a distraction.
  • Technopath: Joey shows no inclination of understanding what machines “say”, nor can he “hear” them, but he can control and manipulate them, as shown whenever he accidentally makes the lights react to his moods. However he has shown to “hear” his omniscience whenever he asks himself a question.
  • Teen Genius: Perenna.
  • That Came Out Wrong: When Blair goes to the Avenger's Mansion, she asks Tony why she's there, and he (probably deliberately) misinterpreted the question and started to answer about she was conceived instead, squicking Blair out in the process.
  • Theme Naming: It's revealed that Whitney only named Blair after Claire was because she thought the fact they rhymed was 'cute'.
  • There Are No Therapists: Averted, but since the only therapist Joey ever sees tries to kill him…
  • This Just In: When the Avengers identities go public.
  • Thicker Than Water: Subverted as Joey and Clint are not related, and with Joey and Serenity as they turn out to be step-siblings.
    • Also subverted as Blair honestly doesn’t seem to want anything to do with her father.
  • Thought-Controlled Power: Every single one of Joey's abilities is based on thought.
  • Tsunshun: Both Clint and Joey to some degree.
  • Training from Hell: Joey called his archery training this.
  • Tomboyish Ponytail: Perenna's hairstyle.
  • Tyke Bomb: Joey.
  • Unnamed Parent: Joey’s father and mother.
  • What Beautiful Eyes: Spider-Girl thinks Superwoman has the prettiest blue eyes she's ever seen.
  • What, Exactly, Is His Job?: Joey wondered this about Clint before he found out.
  • Where I Was Born and Razed: A minor example, but Joey set his apartment building on fire when he was being beaten by his father to try and protect himself.
  • White Sheep: It turned out for the best oddly as Claire was allowed to keep Blair specifically because she wasn't in on the 'family business.'
  • Wide-Eyed Idealist: Téa. Even to the point of trying to blame Joey for making up such a horrible story that his father almost killed him.
  • Wise Beyond Their Years: Jessica found Joey to be this after reflecting over his behavior and after she saw him for what he was, found his behavior distinctly unsettling for someone his age.
  • Woman On Fire: Joey sets Sofen's coat on fire to distract her and lock her in a room.
  • Would Hurt a Child: Joey's biological father had no qualms about hurting him to the point where Joey had to put a padlock on his door so the man couldn't get into his room.
  • The Unfavorite: Joey. His mother didn’t want him in favor of his sister and his dad was abusive towards him.
  • Well-Intentioned Extremist: The Masters of Disaster are perfectly willing to kill to protect the environment.
  • Why Couldn't You Be Different?: The only reason Joey's step-mother hated him was because he wasn't hers.
  • Wicked Stepmother: Joey’s mother turned out to be his step-mother and the case of more of Parental Abandonment. He’s noticeably angry though that his father turned out to be his actual father.
  • Wonder Child: Lita and Serenity play this straight, but in Joey's case it is inverted horribly as his father didn't actually want a child and he got one.
  • Wouldn't Hit a Girl: Joey readily subverted this when he fought back against Sofen and ended up in a coma for it.
  • Would Hurt a Child: Joey's biological father had no qualms about hurting him to the point where Joey had to put a padlock on his door so the man couldn't get into his room.
  • Would Hit a Girl: Flash was quite willing to beat up Perenna in front of a hallway of students.
  • Yandere: Andrea Rourke and Natasha Romanov.
  • Your Cheating Heart: Both Serenity and Joey's parents cheated on each other, resulting in the both of them.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: When Jesse is first introduced, Blair notes his obvious hair dye, and that isn't even commenting on how Blair's own hair was described to be so dark it looked blue.
  • You're Not My Father: Joey obviously hates his father very much and makes sure to never call him directly his 'father.'
  • You Said You Would Let Them Go: Joey seemed genuinely shocked that Sofen was still going to kill his sister, mother and her friend.
  • Younger than They Look: Joey is actually 15, he just skipped a grade.
