He entered a contract to film a reality TV show about himself, but since he didn't have a team, he more-or-less invited himself to the WCA.

    Fuse 

Fuse

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/johnny_watts_earth_616_from_west_coast_avengers_vol_3_1_001.jpg

Alter Ego: Johnny Watts

Notable Aliases:

First Appearance: Hawkeye Vol 5 #2 (March 2017)

Team Affiliations: West Coast Avengers (2018)

Joined In: West Coast Avengers Vol, 3 #1 (October 2018)

Kate's boyfriend, and someone who helped her during her Hawkeye Investigations days. After discovering his innate powers, Johnny joins the WCA as Fuse.


  • Ascended Extra: First a supporting character in Kate's solo series, now a co-star here.
  • Bald of Awesome: Has a shaved head and he's a (rookie) superhero.
  • Battle Couple: With Kate, both being superheroes.
  • Crazy-Prepared: His piercings are made of vibranium, so he's never without something strong to fuse to.
  • Dumb Muscle: Zigzagged. Normally he's just as smart as anyone else, but in Vibranium form he gets noticeably more hotheaded and impulsive, which he suspects is a drawback of staying in that form.
  • Material Mimicry: He can turn into a variety of substances by touching them, like brick, water, or even vibranium.
  • Nigh-Invulnerable: Since he fuses with vibranium, and has them in the form of his earrings, he becomes very difficult to even harm.
  • Orphan's Plot Trinket: His piercings are all he has left from his late mother, who immigrated from Wakanda.
  • Unskilled, but Strong: His powers make him extremely versatile, as he can fuse with anything including vibranium. That said, he's very inexperienced and thus struggles.

    Alloy 

Alloy

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/6898510_ramoen_watts.jpg

Alter Ego: Ramone Watts

Notable Aliases:

First Appearance: Hawkeye Vol 5 #1 (Febuary 2017)

Team Affiliations: West Coast Avengers (2018)

Joined In: West Coast Avengers Vol. 3 #10 (April 2019)

Owner of a surf shop neighboring the WCA's headquarters. She's the sister to Johnny and girlfriend to America, and eventually becomes a superhero, "Alloy".


  • Ascended Extra: She was first introduced in Kate Bishop's Hawkeye run as a friendly neighbor and in this series becomes a superhero in her own right.
  • Combat Tentacles: Her abilities include extending Vibranium from her body in the form of long tentacle-like blades. However, it takes a lot of physical strain, required Quentin to shield the entire team first to avoid her attack, and re-exposes her true skin underneath her Vibranium shell.
  • Distressed Damsel: In the second arc, she's helpless for much of it due to having no powers amidst a swarm of supervillain attacks.
  • 11th-Hour Ranger: Ramone joins the team to rescue her family when they're captured by a temple of fanatical vampires.
  • Material Mimicry: Like her brother, she can take on the properties of things she touches. In her case, however, she's stuck as vibranium.
  • Meaningful Name: Like her brother, she's named after Johnny Ramone.
  • Orphan's Plot Trinket: Her powers come from merging her body with her late mother's Vibranium ring, one of her few possessions taken from Wakanda.
  • Parental Abandonment: Her mother was a Dora Milaje who fled Wakanda for unknown reasons and moved to California. She died when her children were teens, and all she told them about their father is that he came from the sea.
  • Power Incontinence: Like Johnny, Ramone can also transmute Vibranium throughout her body composition. She believed the effect to be permanent, avoiding using her power until as a last resort after America and Johnny are captured. Eventually it turns out she can shed her Vibranium skin by extruding it from her body, but it's very physically exerting to try.
  • Rescue Romance: She and America met when America saved Ramone from being crushed by rubble in the first arc.
  • Second Love: To America, after she broke up with Lisa. America is also Ramone's own second love after her prior girlfriend Mikka.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: She's first seen with dyed pink hair and later dyes it blue.
