- Hilarious in Hindsight: The celebrities with which Blink & Valkyrie are based have been revealed as being in a relationship.
- Race Lift / They Changed It, Now It Sucks!: Blink's new design is met with controversy among the fandom. Saladin Ahmed wanted to show her Bahamian heritage, and made a point of showing that her family is black & having her depicted with stereotypical black African features. Some fans see no issue because they figured Blink was black in the original series when it's said she was Bahamian. Others do not accept this given there are white Bahamians, and Blink was always depicted with features that are considered white, so these fans feel she was unnecessarily race-changed.
- A smaller portion of fandom has no issue with her race being revealed as black by showing both her parents as such, instead of changing her features.
