  • Parodied: ???
  • Zig Zagged: ???
  • Averted: Amazing girl is a hero with absolutely no vices.
  • Enforced: The writer wants to make a point that not all heroes are completely upright.
  • Lampshaded: "I think you might have some anger management issues there, Amazing Girl." "Yeah, but crime never learns, so I don't think I'll run out of people who deserve to be hit any time soon."
  • Invoked: ???
