* ThatsAnOrder: When his men question the soundness of detonating an untested C-K mine (in the middle of a civilian-crowded area, no less), he cuts them off and reaffirms that it's an order, and thus questioning it is out of the [[UnintentionalPun question]].

Added DiffLines:

* CapeBusters: He's the current leader (and possibly founder) of the C-K Corps, a ([[GovernmentAgencyOfFiction fictional]]) special military unit under the command of the US Department of Homeland Security, whose job is to deal with threats to national security involving C-K reaction-based supers. In that regard, they consider costumed superheroes to be little better than actual supervillains, and by all indications the only thing stopping them from arresting superheroes and "quasi-criminals" like Dr. Universe and Greta is the fact that they haven't actually committed any crimes. Issue 25 has him trying to exploit Colonel Glass's attack on Ohio to have his C-K Corps' legal jurisdiction greatly expanded, and he even talks of rolling out next-gen anti-C-K weapons to the National Guard if the bill he's pushing for passes.


Added DiffLines:

* DefensiveFailure: During his confrontation with Colonel Glass in a secret Ohio bunker, he threatened to [[SelfDestructMechanism blow up the entire bunker]] as an attempt to [[TakingYouWithMe kill Colonel Glass at the cost of his life and those of his men]]. Colonel Glass promptly -- and '''correctly''' -- calls his bluff: If Evescroft was "any kind of soldier", he would've simply used the SelfDestructMechanism the instant Glass made his presence known, rather than attempt to '''threaten''' him with. What Glass is essentially saying is that Evescroft is little more than a coward who deludes himself into believing that he's more than willing to [[HeroicSacrifice lay down his life for his country]], but can't put his money where his mouth is when faced with a scenario (namely, a [[ImplacableMan nigh-unstoppable]] AxCrazy supervillain serving a warmongering rogue state) in which such a sacrifice is indeed the only morally sound option.
* FantasticRacism: He and by proxy the C-K Corps frequently refer to independent superheroes as "costumed freaks", and are unconditionally hostile to and uncooperative with them even when faced with a supervillain threat that they themselves are greatly disadvantaged against.


Added DiffLines:

* GovernmentAgencyOfFiction: He's the head of both DARPA's [[FictionalFieldOfScience C-K Research Division]] (at least, during ) and the US Department of Homeland Security's [[CapeBusters C-K Corps]].
* HeroAntagonist: The man seems to be genuinely working to serve his country. Unfortunately, his hostility towards supervillains is equally matched if not exceeded by his hatred for super'''heroes''', whom he and his men have so far not only stubbornly refused to cooperate with even when faced with a dire mutual threat, but actively attempted to arrest simply on flimsy grounds.
* KnightTemplar: He, and by extension the [[CapeBusters C-K Corps]], claim to be doing their duty by "defending the United States of America against '''all''' threats, foreign and domestic." Somehow, this justifies [[http://www.spinnyverse.com/comic/10-21-2013 extrajudicially detaining]] [[http://www.spinnyverse.com/comic/10-28-2013 US citizens]] [[http://www.spinnyverse.com/comic/10-31-2013 under horrible conditions]] and [[http://www.spinnyverse.com/comic/11-04-2013 drugging them]], all just to monopolize a weaponized version of a super-empowering invention; [[http://www.spinnyverse.com/comic/01-13-2014 endanger the lives of every single civilian in the Ohio Research University]] just to get Colonel Glass off his back, rather than going through with his just-stated threat to [[TakingYouWithMe blow the entire bunker]] (which Glass himself called out as an obvious bluff); [[http://www.spinnyverse.com/comic/05-07-2014 delay the evacuation of all the students from the aforementioned university]] on the off chance that Colonel Glass could be hiding among them, not caring that they're simultaneously giving the aforementioned AxCrazy supervillain ample opportunity to hold those students hostage (if he didn't decide to just slaughter them on the spot ForTheEvulz); [[http://www.spinnyverse.com/comic/05-07-2014 arrest a well-known superhero with a clean record]] just because he "assaulted" a (superpowered) member of the C-K Corps (nevermind that [[http://www.spinnyverse.com/comic/12-16-2013 said C-K Corps member was the one who started the fight by attempting to arrest two superheroes]] just because they were '''exercising [[http://www.spinnyverse.com/comic/11-11-2011 their civil rights to be superheroes]]'''); and [[http://www.spinnyverse.com/comic/issue-25-power-swap-09 detonating an untested anti-C-K weapon prototype in the middle of a crowd of civilians]].


Added DiffLines:

* MutantDraftBoard: He is wants superpowers to be "the sole domain of the armed forces" -- in effect, he desires a government monopoly on all supers, and consequentially the criminalization of any super not sanctioned by the government.
* MyGreatestFailure: He has been seething for years over how his "last best hope" for creating an army of superpowered soldiers only ended up being wasted on accidentally turning Dr. Laura [=MacKenzie=] (the future Super-MILF) into a "big-titted maniac", and has sworn to never let that happen again.
* NiceJobBreakingItHero: After he coughed up the location of the C-K reactor that was stolen from him by Dr. Universe to Colonel Glass, he had an anonymous tip sent to Homeland Security in hopes that they would manage to kill Glass where he failed. It just made things worse when the drone strike not only failed to do anything to him, but he went up and '''took over one of the drones''' to use as a convenient method of delivering the reactor to his superiors!
* StealingTheCredit: Issue 25 starts off with him taking credit for Colonel Glass's death, when in reality it's Spinnerette and Buzz who killed him [[note]]Spinny's clever plan left him mortally wounded, Buzz delivered the (persumably) killing shot, and the two of them subsequently [[FireKeepsItDead burned his body just to be sure he's really dead]] (he has a highly potent HealingFactor with only vaguely defined limits).[[/note]].


Added DiffLines:

* WeAreStrugglingTogether: If the actions of the C-K Corps he leads during the Colonel Glass incident are any indication, he'd rather die (and possibly endanger the country he's supposed to serve) than to accept help from a "costumed freak".
