Added DiffLines:

* ForHalloweenIamGoingAsMyself: During the crossover volume Hope (in costume) winds up in the world of ''Webcomic/GrrlPower'' where Sentinels is a TV show so Hope infiltrates a convention as an Astra cosplayer.


* SuperheroPackingHeat: Discouraged; it's a (mostly) unspoken rule that capes wield "classical" weapons, high-tech weapons, and/or their own powers, ''not'' conventional firearms. Artemis uses guns, but after joining the Sentinels she switches over to high-tech stun guns when on actual team business.

Though this goes out the window when the chips are down, like during the Whittier base attack.

** Some super-teams, such as the Hollywood Knights, are unionized and have a maximum number of hours they can work before they have to "clock out". As Seven explains to Astra, it's a necessary evil because otherwise, superheros can get exhausted and start making costly mistakes.

Astra notes that when you're an Atlas-type, you're *always* operating heavy equipment.


* RentAZilla: Someone decided that unleashing Kaiju upon the world was a good idea. They appear worldwide, but mostly attack Japan, who responded by forming superhero teams, as well as grabbing every Verne-type in reach and building mecha.

* NewPowersAsThePlotDemands: In ''Villains Inc.'' an encounter grants Astra the ability to sense magic, allowing her to make several observations key to the plot. It is suggested that this added power is temporary, however.

* LivingLieDetector: A government agent with the code-name [[MeaningfulName Veritas]] is noted to be able to know if anything (spoken, written, recorded etc) is true or not. This proves invaluable when Hope has to determine if she can afford to trust a certain person.

This proves invaluable when Hope has to determine if she can afford to trust a certain person. Though it later turns out that [[spoiler: that he can only tell if the speaker/writer/etc. *believes* it is a lie. This allows him to be co-opted by the Dark Anarchist, who believes that what he's doing is the only way to protect humanity.]]


* GoodCostumeSwitch: Averted with [[Spoiler:Riptide]]. Even after switching to the side of the angels, he still likes villain fashion.

Added DiffLines:

* EveryoneIsArmed: Chicago has become this in one of the universes Astra tumbles through during Team-Ups and Crossovers, with every civilian in sight carrying handguns. It turns out that [[spoiler: this is the aftermath of what would have happened if she hadn't stopped the missile in Omega Night.]]


** Heroes Without Borders takes it to an extreme as part of their organizational culture. ''Everyone'' who works for them uses a codename, powered or not.



** Though capes have revolutionized disaster relief, as seen during the [[spoiler:California earthquake]], delivering aid far faster than would be possible in the real world and rebuilding advances at a very rapid pace. There's also Heroes Without Borders, which is a sizable organization dedicated to defying this trope.
