** Grant's 1997 Anarky miniseries is essentially a four-issue-long AuthorFilibuster, delivered via Anarky's InnerMonologue, long philosophical debates with Batman, {{ComicBook/Darkseid}}, and {{Etrigan}}, and occasional pauses in the action to allow Anarky to [[BreakingTheFourthWall break the fourth wall]] to [[CharacterFilibuster lecture the reader directly]] on his alternative view of human history and development.

* InsultBackfire: The eponymous character confronts PhysicalGod {{Darkseid}} and begins to lecture Darkseid on why everything he does is wrong. Just when he's about to use the E-word, Darkseid cuts him off and proudly finishes the "insult" for him.

* LegacyCharacter: [[spoiler: Though very much against his will. What's worse, the person who kidnapped him and took his persona, Ulysses Armstrong ([[http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Characters/RobinSeries The General]]), is about as far from Machin's philosophy as possible and is just a violent psychopath looking to use his image to fight Robin. Lonnie is noticeably displeased.]]

* TheDarkAgeOfComicBooks: Anarky was created in 1989, three years after the publication of ''Comicbook/TheDarkKnightReturns'', ''Comicbook/CrisisOnInfiniteEarths'', and only ten months after the conclusion of the ''Comicbook/ADeathInTheFamily'' story arc. With a partial inspiration in another Dark Age predecessor, ''V for Vendetta'', Anarky was an early product of the comic book Dark Ages. However, while he was originally intended to conform to the compromised, anti-hero sensibilities of the era, the early decision to not have him kill, and to make him an idealistic, rather than nihilistic figure, was enough to set him on a very different path.

* AdaptationalVillainy: He's gotten this treatment every time he's adapted for other media. ''WesternAnimation/BewareTheBatman'' dropped his complex philosophy in favor of making him a Joker-esque criminal mastermind. And while ''VideoGame/BatmanArkhamOrigins'' was more faithful to the comics, Anarky was still depicted as a violent terrorist.

In the comics, most of Anarky's actions were targeted at specific individuals, and although some of his actions put his targets in critical condition, he wasn't a killer and he would avoid collateral damage. In ''Origins'', Anarky plans to blow up buildings connected to what he believes are the root problems of society, and he's unconcerned with who might get hurt in the process. He's also portrayed as somewhat less rational than his comic book counterpart. You probably wouldn't hear the comic Anarky ranting against soft drinks, for example.

* ConvenientlyAnOrphan: Originally written as the single son of a middle class couple, Lonnie's biggest problem in his early stories, in Grant's own words, was his need to hide his activities as Anarky from his parents by sneaking out of his home. Wanting to give the character a greater degree of freedom, Grant wrote a scene that faked Anarky's death, allowing him to callously let his parents believe he was dead. This is presented as an example of Anarky's self-righteousness at first, but becomes a point of shame at the start of the ongoing series. Mandated by editors to remove Anarky from Gotham City at the start of the comic, Grant used the ''BatmanNoMansLand'' storyline to make them disappear. The search for the missing parents gets derailed when Anarky's investigation suggests he was adopted. As this plot was cut short by the cancellation of of the series, the fate of his missing parents remains unknown. While Anarky fell into obscurity for quite a while afterward, Lonnie's never had to worry about his parents since.
