* DeconstructedCharacterArchetype: He's an {{Expy}} of Franchise/{{Superman}}, if he snapped, went evil and stopped being the shining example of IncorruptiblePurePureness we all know and love.

* DeconstructedCharacterArchetype: He's an {{Expy}} of Franchise/{{Superman}}, if he snapped, went evil Franchise/{{Superman}}. They have similar powers, uniforms, elements in their mythology (a hidden fortress, a reporter love interest, a mad scientist nemesis, [[spoiler:an element that strips away their powers]], etc.), and stopped perceptions by the world of being savior figures of IncorruptiblePurePureness. However, the shining example of IncorruptiblePurePureness we all know differences in his background leave his private motivations as a superhero wildly askew compared to Superman's genuine decency and love.faith in others; he ultimately snaps due to not being psychologically capable of bearing the responsibilities and physical complications that come with the powers in the way his counterpart is able to shoulder them.



* {{Expy}}: The Plutonian is one of ComicBook/{{Superman}}, albeit gone very, very wrong. And with none of Superman's weaknesses. He's also very evocative of ComicBook/{{Supreme}} and ComicBook/{{Miracleman}} in appearance. In fact, his costume is nearly identical to Apollo's from ''Grounded''.

* {{Expy}}: Max Damage combines elements of Metallo (especially the frustration at losing his senses when he powers up) and Giganta. Silver Age Giganta got stronger and tougher, but less intelligent, when she grew - Max loses brainpower more indirectly, through the severe sleep deprivation necessary to bring him up to full strength. His biker evoking design and crude habits might be nods to {{Lobo}} too.

* BrownNote: See BodyHorror above. Worst part is that you don't even have to ''vocalize'' it, just looking at it and registering it in your brain is enough. Even more frightening is that he can apparently impart this ability on others. He does it for [[spoiler: Survivor]], which makes it not only just a way to summon him in the first place, but also a glorified form on teleportation once he's already summoned.

* AManIsNotAVirgin: Was a virgin well into his adult life due to [[ManOfSteelWomanOfKleenex his powers potentially killing any woman he'd be with]]. In spite of this, he lived the life of an upstanding and virtuous hero for years. [[spoiler: He eventually did wind up losing his virginity to Bette thanks to a magical candle that temporarily took away his superpowers. When able to "let loose" on her, Bette was surprised and deeply shaken to see he was actually very violent and rough in bed. It's unclear if this played into his later turn as a supervillain, if she just got a sneak-peek at something unsettling under his persona or if this was just due to years of repression.]]

* {{That Woman Is Dead}}: Annie embraces her Headcase persona to the point that she insists on others calling her by it instead of her given name. She goes as far as to have a tombstone with her full name erected next to her parents' graves.

* {{Yandere}}: She gets noticeably clingy to Max.

to:

** [[spoiler: {{What Happened To The Mouse}}: Annie's fate by the series' end is debatable. Armadale shoots down having her put into psychiatric care by pointing out the destruction visited upon the psychiatric hospitals and how they're in his words, "certainly not taking any new costumers." He brings up jailing her, but his choice of words point to that being temporary. It's never confirmed if and when Annie gets treatment for her issues. Or even if she gets out of jail, leaving her status by Incorruptible's end and future once she gets out of jail (if she ever does) unsure.]]
