Added DiffLines:

*ColourCodedForYourConvenience: Powers in Price tend to generate red, blue or yellow light. Stronger Imbued have two colors and sometimes a blend of those colors (red and blue makes purple- or possibly magenta or some other shade of purple). The really strong ones have black or white.

Added DiffLines:

**Furthermore, Surges don't simply add a new power to their powerset. They take new traits related to the reason for the Surge and use them to remix the original powerset. New powers are generally more potent than old however they may be more situationally limited.


* AsskickingEqualsAuthority: Vertigo holds on to her power with fear and by killing disloyal members of her own (criminal) organization.



* ImmortalLifeIsCheap: Zach regenerates from anything, including not normally fatal injuries like getting cold enough to shiver sets off his ResurrectiveImmortality. Even Anima makes a casual comment about killing him. She feels remorse immediately after realizing what she said.

Added DiffLines:

* RealityEnsues: The story lives on this trope. Despite superpowers being a thing, every supers trope is looked at and often deconstructed. Supers patrolling the city for crime almost never actually find crime. Property destruction results in fines and possible jail time. Supervillains act like normal criminals.

Added DiffLines:

* MoreThanMindControl: Ferne is a master of this. She has tons of "friends" who she has granted powers too in return for favors. Eventually,[[spoiler: you learn that even Alex was basically her slave, and that she pretty much ran the school before her death.]]


* NewPowersasthePlotDemands: In setting known as a 'Surge', all supers have the ability to change their powers. At a [[TitleDrop Price]]. Due to this, most supers would rather lose than use that feature, and their enemies know not to push them hard enough to change their minds.
