Allison Kinsey is an eight-year-old girl incarcerated at the [=McClare=] Demi-Human Containment Center for study of her power, copying the skills of others by listening to their "song." If the researchers had any idea what she could really do, it's unlikely they would have ever put her there.

Added DiffLines:

* ByNoIMeanYes: Happens a few times as children are speaking to each other. Mabel is particularly prone to this.

* HistoricalDomainCharacter: New Kelly is referenced once, though only to emphasis the infamy of the supervillain AU.
* HollywoodAcid: [[AvertedTrope Averted]] with Basilisk, who sweats acid that doesn't do serious harm to someone (though presumably some could ensue if they didn't wipe it off or got it in their eyes) but does tend to destroy his clothing, sheets and paper he handles.


* TeleportersAndTransporters: Arnold, without many of the usual restrictions, but with the drawback that he can only teleport things other than himself. The New Human Institute also has a few more conventional examples as students.
