Real name: Heather Douglas

  • Absolute Cleavage
  • Ace Pilot: She is a skilled starship pilot.
  • A God Am I: Has her moments
  • Arrogant Kung Fu Girl: She is a superb alien hand-to-hand combatant, trained by the Titanian monks of Shao-Lom who were veteran practitioners in martial arts. Douglas is well versed in pressure points.
    • And even after barely winning her fight with The Dragon of The Moon, she still remained arrogant. After several rounds of trauma and Demonic Possession, this has subsided.
  • Bald Women: Heather is not naturally bald. She shaves her head preferring to be bald, though has worn short hair in the past.
  • Bi the Way: She tried mating with the original Quasar, then started seeing the newer more female Quasar, though that could be just her trying to fulfill a prophecy. She and and the new Quasar (Phyla-Vell) were lovers before the latter was Quasar, and Moony had had a lesbian tryst (with Marlo Chandler, Rick Jones' wife) before that. Moondragon even said that she didn't feel any true attraction to the men she had tried to attract in the past, so this is a debatable case.
  • Bury Your Gays: After she was infected with mutated spores and started to die; the Dragon of the Moon appeared and told her it could save her life, but only if she agreed to be its host. She accepted, and, now an evil being, battled the Defenders, until four of them sacrificed themselves to kill both her and the Dragon.
    • Back from the Dead: Heather's soul managed to survive, and, now free from the Dragon again, contacted a cousin of hers; through her, she was able to obtain a new body for herself, a clone created on Titan.
  • Demonic Possession: She has a history with this.
  • The Engineer
  • The Gift: Moondragon is a classic case of this. Orphaned by the renegade Thanos of Titan, she was brought up on his homeworld and instructed in physical and mental disciplines for which she proved to have considerable talent. She got proud enough to challenge the Dragon in the Moon and apparently proved good enough to destroy it, which did not help. At her best she is insufferably arrogant (being almost That Damned Good to boot), and when the DitM's influence surfaces she lapses into full-blown Megalomania. Life with her new girlfriend seems to have mellowed her... somewhat.
  • Good Bad Girl
  • Interspecies Romance: With Phyla-Vell. She's a human, and Phyla's half-Kree, half-Eternal.
  • Omnidisciplinary Scientist: Douglas is an expert in various advanced Titanian sciences as well as Earth human sciences.
  • Psychic Powers: Heather Douglas was one of the most powerful human born telepaths ever. Her telepathic abilities include mind-control, mental attacks, mental shielding, personality alteration, memory erasure, memory modification. Douglas telepathic range is virtually limitless, as she is able to contact minds scattered throughout a solar system without enhancement devices such as Xavier's Cerebro.
    • Douglas' most notable psychic actions were the complete mental enslavement of an entire warring planet of people, psionically stalemating the sorcerer supreme Doctor Strange for an extended period of time, and mentally killing a clone of Thanos endowed with psionic powers greater than Professor X, as well as being able to pierce the mental barriers of Galactus and even enabling Thanos to almost overwhelm the devourer's mind when channeling her powers. All feats beyond that of Xavier and most other noted human and human mutant psychics.
  • Raised By Aliens: When was little, she was found by Thanos' father, Mentor, who took her to his home world, Titan, to be raised.
  • Scaled Up: Was only able to turn into a dragon once but she made it count.
  • Stalker with a Test Tube: To Quasar. Her Coming-Out Story revolved around her realizing that she had only ever used sex and romance as a means to an end, rather than an end in itself.
  • Trauma Conga Line: The entire second half of the second volume, and The Thanos Imperative are one for her.
  • Twofer Token Minority: Amongst the Eternals, she's a bisexual human.

    Two-Gun Kid 

Two-Gun Kid

Real name: Matthew Hawk
Team(s) served on: The Avengers

  • Badass Normal
  • Bounty Hunter: During the Civil War, Matt Hawk became a licensed bounty hunter and worked alongside She-Hulk, helping her to apprehend super-villains.
  • Cowboy
  • Domino Mask
  • Faking the Dead: When the dates of his "deaths" as both Matt Hawk and the Two-Gun Kid drew near, he faked his death as Matt Hawk so he could devote his Two-Gun Kid identity to foiling an international conspiracy aimed at controlling the world's economy.
  • Fish out of Temporal Water: One of reason because, the first time, he refuse to stay with the Avengers prefering return to his era.
  • Guns Akimbo: He use two pistols.
  • The Gunslinger: He is one of the fastest and best gunfighters of his time, rivaled only by Kid Colt and the Rawhide Kid.
  • Something Person / The Trope Kid: He's a young man with two guns.
  • Time Travel: After the battle with Kang, Two-Gun offered his services to the Avengers and was awarded reserve membership in absentia while he explored 20th century America with Hawkeye as his guide. Howewer he became increasingly homesick, though, and later returned to his own era.
    • More later, however, it has been revealed that She-Hulk, after dealing with the Time Variance Authority, was given the chance to free one time traveling Avenger out of continuity limbo. She chose the Two-Gun Kid. It was clarified that his heroic nature prevented him from being returned to his own time, as he would inevitably try to fix things.
    • At some point in the future, Matt Hawk would became too old to continue crime fighting and returned to his past to a period analogous with the amount of time he had aged.
  • Trauma Conga Line: The deaths of his wife, his daughter and of his best friend Boom Boom Brown (deaths, which might have been prevented with the modern medicine Two-Gun saw in the future), made him cynical and fatalistic.
