* BewareTheQuietOnes: M-11. He's a killer robot who does not speak most of the time, but he's also the member of the team most willing to kill enemies or just opponents in a moment's notice. Case and point, when burned the flesh off of Wolverine's arm just after immediately meeting him when it was meant to be a kill shot.

* AntiHeroTeam: It's made apparent in the series that the Agents of Atlas don't follow conventional rules of morality or law and hold themselves as a sovereign power trying to do some good in the world on their own terms. It's best made clear when Jimmy Woo had a bunch of fleeing Skrulls incinerated by M-11 that the team plays for keeps when it comes to taking down foes in most cases unless Venus is involved and even her presence is not a guarantee a foe will live. According to Norman Osborn, even Venus, the resident all-loving hero of the team, managed to rack up a body count during her time as a siren that would be equivalent to a casualty list from a small war.



* TheDarkChick: Namora. Her idea of intimidation is dragging you to the depths of the ocean and has no compunction over killing people who offend her enough. Just like her cousin.



* GoodRunningEvil
* {{Immortality}}:

* GoodRunningEvil
GoodRunningEvil: Jimmy became this when he led the Atlas Foundation.
* {{Immortality}}: Venus

* CharmPerson: Venus's central power; anyone who hears her voice will do anything to make her happy. Good thing she's the AllLovingHero type.

That was pretty much it for the next three decades, until editor Mark Paniccia stumbled across the "What If?" and decided to ask writer Jeff Parker what he'd do with the idea in the mainstream MarvelUniverse. The result was a six-issue miniseries called ''Agents of Atlas'' (October, 2006 -March, 2007).

Again, that pretty much seemed to be it for the Agents, although they made a couple of other appearances elsewhere in the MarvelUniverse.

'''Note''': Atlas Comics was the name Marvel went by for most of the '50s. All of the characters in ''Agents of Atlas'' were created during the Atlas Comics period, before the ComicBook/FantasticFour ushered in the modern MarvelUniverse.

* CaptainErsatz: The Yellow Claw is an Ersatz for Fu Manchu -- who later ended up becoming part of the MarvelUniverse himself. One of the cases where the original and the Ersatz share the same fictive space. They also share a universe with Iron Man villain The Mandarin. Their similar claimed backgrounds are explained by "[[TruthInTelevision Genghis Khan has lots of descendants.]]"

Then in mid-2008 came the news that the Agents would be getting their own ongoing series, kicking off in February 2009. Cue much {{Squee}} from the Agents' fans -- and a certain amount of cynicism, noting [[ScrewedByTheNetwork what usually happens with new series]]. This fate was semi-averted: the series wrapped up with #11, had a two-issue crossover with the ComicBook/{{X-Men}}, was installed in ''ComicBook/TheIncredibleHercules'' as a backup, got relaunched, then [[http://www.comicsalliance.com/2010/07/13/jeff-parker-ken-hale-on-gorilla-man-the-end-of-agents-of-atlas/ got cancelled again]], with Parker calling quits at issue #5. There was also a three-issue miniseries for both Gorilla Man and the Uranian, and a one-shot for Namora.
