** When Marquis is suspected of robbing a bank (it was a Blasto clone), he responds by walking into the PRT, claiming that in his years away, he'd gotten rich enough that there would be no point in him doing something as petty as armed robbery, and then proves it by cutting a check for the bank to reimburse them for their loss on the spot. And a second one to cover the medical bills of the people who were wounded in the robbery.


* OffWithHisHead: Marchioness takes this trope in an entirely unexpected direction ...



** Marchioness does have a limitation in that her powers are much more closely linked to her emotional state; specifically, that they affect people according to how she feels about said people. If she [[PowerOfLove really likes someone, her power will automatically help and heal them]]. If she [[PowerOfHate despises someone, it's really hard for her to heal them, and easy to hurt them]]. With increased emotional effect also comes increased range ...

* AscendedExtra: Deputy Director/Acting Director Renick. When the first Director is killed, he's bumped into the top spot and gets quite a bit of screen time.



* ForWantOfANail: The failure to nab Marquis and the subsequent arrest at the hands of the Brigade prevents the New Wave movement once Deputy Director Rennick explains exactly how stupid the idea is. As a result, one of the Brigade's members isn't killed and the child members of the Brigade receive training with the Wards, preventing Vicky's... ''enthusiastic'' takedowns of criminals that she had in canon. All of the Brigade still have secret identities, as well.
