* WalkingTechbane: Being an Unconnectable before the nuclear winter already made his life hard in a world where almost everyting contains an A.I., [[spoiler: but if Captain is to be believed, his various violations of the Good Corporation laws and his literaly infinite debt pin him as a ''very'' bad G-Dir user, which makes Apps actively dislike him.]]

!! Alexander Gromov B, Lunar Overmind

'''Tropes:'''
* BigBad: Acts as the Moon arc one.
* CreateYourOwnVillain: He created the [[WalkingTechbane Unconnectables]] by using Captain's straw.
* GreaterScopeVillain: He was behind the Unconnectables terrorist attacks and the assasination of the Good Corporation directors which caused ''a lot'' of the universe's current predicament.
* HumanoidAbomination: He is a accidental backup copy of Engineer who fused with the Moon's machines to become the Lunar Overmind. His physical avatar consists of the skeleton of Engineer wearing his clothes and animated by fleshy tendrils.
* WalkingSpoiler: His existence is a spoiler in itself, but strip 244 just puts a lot of light on most of the events of the comic.
* WellIntentionedExtremist: When he realized that the Directors prefered to live in holographic luxury rather than stop the destruction of Earth and the endless consumption cycle its inhabitants were locked in, he devised a plan in order to become the main shareholder of the Good Corporation and force the directors to use their power more responsibly. He got all of them [[ThereIsNoKillLikeOverKill including their Moon backup copies]] save for Engie.

* NiceGuy: According to {{Word of God}}. In the actual comic he acts more like a JerkWithAHeartOfGold ([[JustifiedTrope which is entirely understandable, given his situation]]). He's usually nice to his fans on his {{tumblr}} and {{Facebook}} though.
