The Misfit Series contains examples of:

  • Adaptational Expansion: Althea, in the G.I. Joe cartoon was a synthazoid baby used by Cobra to trick Shipwreck. Here, she is now Shipwreck's actual daughter with Mara, as well as a water-controlling mutant and a student of Storm Shadow and Toad's girlfriend.
  • Adaptational Heroism: Oddly enough, one of the few supporters the mutant cause has is J. Jonah Jameson.
  • Adaptational Villainy: In canon, Magneto, while a terrorist, still cares for his fellow mutants. Here, Ronin Toad opens with him punishing Todd severely. He later experiments on Avalanche, leading to the teen's power becoming unstable and developing a split personality in the form of an annoying coyote with Quicksilver's voice.
