Globelle and The Silver Sliver

I believe it's cartoon plot cliche #5: the cast comes in contact with some device or potion which turns them into their exact opposites personality wise. Or a deeper way of looking at it is that the effect brings out more repressed tendencies. Anyway, here's some of my classmates (as sueprheroes) under the influence of such a device: "the ultimate prop". I'm sure it won't mean much unless you know them and/or can tell who it is.

Globelle can both grow and shrink to equally amazing sizes; more often then not she prefers growing, as it opens up to more photo opportunites. An incredibly skilled superhero, but her obession with the press and her sponsers tends to distract her from her duties. Seera and Telleta would love to have her transferred to a new post..... preferably a planet without oxygen. Sadly, her father keeps the tower funded during the slow months, so everyone has to grin and bear it.

The "Silver Sliver" can shoot tiny quills from his fingertips. Unimpressive? That's what everyone assumes, until an overwhelming itchiness takes over them shortly after getting pricked. But, despite his affable attitude, Sliver prefers flying solo. Rushing to the rescue in times of need and then darting back into the shadows. Whether he's a help or a hindrance depends on who you ask.

Well see, Shari Lewis (the Lambchop lady), always comes across very sweet and maudlin, while lambchop is the prima donna and the somewhat hostile one. Upon having a host ruin her act and receiving an apology in her dressing room, Shari smiled and insisted no hard feelings transpired. As the host turned to leave, Lambchop sprung up and furiosuly demanded an apology herself. Lewis seems to need to release her hostilities indirectly.

This is the exact opposite of the girl under the influence of the prop; she wears everything on her sleeves.
