David had a power to copy knowledge of every person around him for limited amount of time. He lost his abilities during [[ComicBook/HouseOfM M-Day]] but would stay at Xavier's and serve as New X-Men's tactician. Later he regained all knowledge he already copied before losing his powers, and become the head of X-Men youth division after Schism. During Comicbook/MarvelNOW he joined the ComicBook/YoungAvengers - you should also see his entry on that team's character page to see what he's up to lately.

* BlessedWithSuck: He absorbed the knowledge of anyone who was nearby. Including, as he reveals, things like what they do during sex.



* BroughtDownToNormal: For a while. Prodigy lost his powers after Decimation, but to an extent, regained them after Stepford Cuckoos restored his previous memories and skills.

* DrunkWithPower: His deep fear what would happen if his powers had no restraint.
* FutureMeScaresMe: Temporal block that made him lose all copied knowledge after some time was apparently subconscious, as he was deep inside afraid having all the combined knowledge without having to earn it would turn him into a despot.

* TeenGenius: Prodigy is naturally intelligent. He completed college level courses while in high school, operates complicated technology, pilots the Blackbird, and built the Danger Cave, all without using his powers.

* {{Hypocrite}}: She lays into David for being judgmental against Josh, when he's only doing so over his past involvement with Purifiers, while she condescends and snarks to Sooraya for "holding women back" because she chooses to wear a niqab.

* NotSoDifferent: He and Kevin have more in common than each would like to admit. It's best displayed in House of M, when they are good friends... as [[ThoseTwoBadGuys a pair of amoral]] [[TortureTechnician Torture Technicians]].
* PutOnABus: Vanished after the Necrosha arc of X-Force.

* PutOnABus: Vanished after the Necrosha arc of X-Force.''X-Force''. Which was just before ''Second Coming'', when his powers would ''really'' have been handy for a lot of X-Men.



* HeartIsAnAwesomePower: Oh, pheromones, what a ridiculous power, right? As ''House of M'' shows, if Lauria weren't so nice, she'd be an absolute terror, just like her old man. Hard to fight someone who can make you too afraid to move, or suddenly enraged with your best friend.



* ShyGirl

to:

* ShyGirlPowerIncontinence: She initially has no real control over her powers, which made rooming with her pretty difficult, since she'd get nervous and that would make her powers flare up, and things would get worse from there. It's not until Wind Dancer comes along that she gets a roommate she doesn't have to worry about, since Sofia can just use her powers to prevent the pheromones getting near her. [[spoiler:She never quite manages to get her powers fully under control.]]
* ShrinkingViolet



* CharmPerson: Initially, he seemed powerless, but it was revealed he actually had the mutant power of a compelling singing voice. The Chuck Austen gave him wings as well.



* HorribleJudgeOfCharacter: Honestly trusted William Stryker, and thought [[spoiler:he would held the former mutant students]].

* TooDumbToLive

to:

* TooDumbToLiveTokenGoodTeammate: He was too nice for the Hellions, which is why he got transferred over.
* TooDumbToLive: Again, trusted William Stryker. The crazed fundamentalist who had previously tried to kill the X-Men, had led lynch mobs and murdered his own wife and child.



* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Like all the Hellions, she's got a good side. Notably, she's one of the few to try and be nice to X-23.



* NoSell: Magic doesn't work on her liquid form. And since she's made of metal, Wither's touch doesn't have any effect.

to:

* NoSell: Magic doesn't work on her liquid form. And since she's made of metal, Wither's touch doesn't have any effect. She's also immune to Laurie's pheromone powers, which resulted in them previously being made roommates (which didn't work so well).



* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: After the death of several of his friends, he became slightly more mature but still has his moments. He threatens to quit the team if they won't let Anole and Pixie join.

* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: After the death of several of his friends, he became slightly more mature but still has his moments. He threatens to quit the team if they won't let Anole and Pixie join. He's also respectful towards Dust's beliefs, panicking when she shows up mid-fight not wearing her veil.

* BrokenRecord: When she first appeared, all she could say was "turaab" (dust). That she had been abducted and then killed her abductors might've had something to do with this.



* OffModel: Despite supposedly wearing a niqab, some writers tend to draw it more like an abaya (or vice-versa), a fact Gentle even comments on at one point.



* RememberTheNewGuy: She is introduced in Young X-Men as not a new character but she is actually Secret Xavier Institute student known originally known only to Cyclops and Jean Grey. Eventually joined the training squad after assisting them behind the scenes for months.

* FatalFlaw: Pretty much all her interpersonal conflicts boil down to the fact that Noriko- although not intentionally malicious- does not like anything outside her immediate experience. This is why she picks fights with [[ValuesDissonance Dust]] and [[CreepyGood X-23]], [[spoiler:and why she reacts badly to David's injury]]. Panic is never far behind confusion, for her.



* ItsAllMyFault: As a leader she has tendency to blame herself for all bad things that happens to her teammates, even if she had no way to stop it.

A telekinetic mutant and leader of Emma Frost's Hellions. Initially a jerk and a showoff, after M-Day de-powered many of his friends, and William Stryker murdered many of his others, he quickly matured into a passionate but troubled leader.

Added DiffLines:

* SiblingYinYang: She was born without eyes while all that's left of her brother's body are his eyes after his powers activated.


* CameBackStrong: Non-fatal example: If Anole loses a limb, the one that grows back will be larger and stronger than the one he lost. However see DependingOnTheArtist.
* DependingOnTheArtist: Anole's appearance varies ''wildly'' depending on who is drawing him. Details such as the shape of his head, or whether he has a tail can change between issues, to say nothing of different books altogether. Whether or not he has his "[[FanNickname Popeye Arm]]"[[note]]After losing his arm in Limbo, it grew back larger and stronger[[/note]] is also inconsistent, to the point that [[ShrugOfGod the official story is now that he lost it in an incident that has yet to be explored.]]



* ShrugOfGod: Jordan D. White's response when challenged by fans over how Anole lost the monster limbs he picked up in ''Extraordinary'' and reverted back to his classic "[[WesternAnimation/{{Popeye}} Arm," or [[DependingOnTheArtist artists not even drawing that]], was to dismiss them as "stories yet to be told."



* BetterToDieThanToBeKilled: [[spoiler:Ruth takes this position in ''ComicBook/{{Uncanny X-Men|2018}}'' #11, when upon seeing no future in which she isn't subject to a painful death, decides the only way out is to take her own life on her terms.]]

* AlohaHawaii

to:

* AlohaHawaiiAlohaHawaii: Loa is a Pacific Islander, and was born in Hawaii.


Added DiffLines:

* DroppedABridgeOnHim: [[spoiler:Loa is unceremoniously killed off in ''ComicBook/{{Uncanny X-Men|2018}}''. In fact her death isn't even ''shown'', all we see is her corpse, and it requires Ruth's pronouncing her dead to even know it's her.]]

* PowerIncontinence: Constantly absorbs ambient static electricity until she violently discharges it.



* StrawFeminist: To the extent that she also came off as a bit of a bigoted JerkAss. She chewed out her Muslim roommate Dust over her decision to wear a burqa, going so far as to call her an embarrassment to women everywhere.
