Useful Notes/ pages are not tropes
* TheSilverAgeOfComicBooks: In-universe the 1960's appear to have been this; complete with colourful costumes, classic do-gooder heroes and [[CardCarryingVillain Card Carrying Villains]]. Most of the characters who were active during this time look back on it with nostalgia, even the bad guys, Commander Power fondly describes it as "When heroes were heroes and villains were villains".

''ComicBook/CommonGrounds'' is a six-issue comic book limited series created by writer Troy Hickman [[note]]adapted from his Small Press comic ''Holey Crullers''[[/note]] and published by Top Cow Productions in 2004. The series examined the life of superheroes and villains in and around a chain of coffee shops called [[TitleDrop Common Grounds]], all of which which serve as a neutral-ground between superpowered heroes and villains. Because of the lack of violence on their premises, these restaurants allow heroes and villains to speak to one another in amicable situations, and provided insights into their histories and personal lives as they are featured in normal, everyday situations while still in character as a hero or villain.

* SuddenlyEthnicity: Kind of inverted. At a reunion of a 1960's superhero team, it's revealed that the TokenBlack member wore a full concealing body suit and mask that completely hid his race. Given the racial climate of TheSixties and the fact that his team-mate, wife and presumably former girlfriend is white that was probably a good plan.
