* Each character has their own, at one point or another, even if no two fans can agree on which point it is for each. Some are more obvious than the others, but they are all epic (some do not believe it is '''possible''' to top seeing ThePunisher get cold-cocked by the cutest twelve-year-old girl you will ever see in an adorable hat).

* Molly earlier punching Wolverine out of a church is also pretty awesome.
* Molly also punched a Super Skrull through a skyscraper during Secret Invasion.
* Chase has a pretty big one.
-->'''Chase:''' (the group has just detained Victor) Don't worry this psycho killer ain't going anywhere.
-->'''Victor:''' What's... what's ''your'' power?
-->'''Chase:''' A poor upbringing (brandishing knife)

!!The Original Series:



* An early one for Karolina: When one of the parents questions whether or not the kids will fight them, Leslie Dean scoffs and says that Karolina doesn't have the ''spine'' to fight. Later, she goes to confront Karolina. Leslie imprisons Chase, and just ''cranks up'' the honey and sugar: she greets her daughter with "Hello, my angel," and explains that yes, K, you're an alien, and you'll learn more about your beautiful gifts, and that there's no point in fighting because their abilities are exactly the same and can't be used to hurt each other. Karolina, angry that she's been lied to and upset that her life isn't what she thought it was, takes the power limiter bracelet, and says that if her mother's powers are the same as hers, the bracelet must also do to her what it does to Karolina: "Take away everything that makes you special." And she brandishes it like brass knuckles, pulls her fist back and ''clocks'' her mom right then and there.

* Hell even the team's psychic dinosaur gets its own CMOA. After Chase fell off a building, Old Lace managed to grab him by the jacket, dug her claws into the building, and ran up it to get Chase onto the roof. Made even more awesome because while the rest of the team is wondering if Chase and Old Lace just died, Molly guesses ''exactly'' what happened. This leads into the Punisher example mentioned above.
