Alien Scrappy is no longer a trope, and this is an awfully written example:
  • Alien Scrappy: Warlock and Gossamyr; Shatterstar also probably counts when written by Rob Liefeld
    • The presence of extraterrestrials on a mutant team was handwaved away since they had different personalities than those typical of their species (this was lampshaded and parodied in an issue of What The...? where the New Mutants parody team had a stray dog join for similar reasons).
      • Warlock actually was a mutant of his species, however, as unlike the rest of the technarchy, he was able to infect people without it being permanent, and absorb life energy without killing them.
