The inverse of Future Me Scares Me, where a character sees the past and either meets or somehow witnesses the actions of their past self, and just can't stand them. Maybe they were once a villain, and now that they've reformed dislike how evil they once were, or, inversely, they're more evil and show disdain for how "weak" their past self is. Maybe they were extremely selfish as a child, and regret their indifference to the needs and feelings of others. Maybe they're just more experienced, and are annoyed with how inexperienced and impulsive they were in the past. In any case, they're constantly ticked off by their past.
You have your Hero, who can throw fireballs from her hands; the Anti Hero, who can shoot lightning from his eyes; the Villain, who can freeze anyone with her breath. You know, standard stuff. But then you have those that are a little more...quirky.
In the hero biz is not only important what your power is, but also how you use it, and outside of Toilet Humor, few things are weirder than using your own nose for attacking, either by using it as a melee weapon, or shooting any kind of projectile from it.
