Added DiffLines:

* BroughtToYouByTheLetterS: The Chinese character for the number "7" is for the Seven Deadly Brothers.
* TheCape: Thundermind fulfills this archetype despite lacking a cape. As a result, he's the only member of the Great Ten deemed capable of being a media darling.

While August General in Iron and Immortal Man in Darkness are also true patriots, Socialist Red Guardsman is the only member of the team to actually have Das Kapital and The Little Red Book committed to memory.

He even attempted to quit the team in disgust at his country's growing commercialism.
