** 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.

* 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.
