* GoodGuyBar

* GoodGuyBarGoodGuyBar: Technically it's for everyone, but most of the characters in the series are good guys.



* MagicalSeventhSon: Man-Witch. He had about fourteen siblings because the "seventh son of a seventh son" thing doesn't count girls.

* MagicalSeventhSon: Man-Witch. He had about fourteen siblings because the "seventh son of a seventh son" thing doesn't count girls. The story leaves it ambigious wether or not the number actually gave him magic potential or not, as it still took decades of training before he could cast his first spell.



* MostCommonSuperPower: Magna-Woman had it, so she had a breast reduction surgery; her health is much better now.

* RealityEnsues: See above; killing somebody gets you a lengthy prison term and a miserable life once released, not a free pass or easy escape every two weeks.

See above; killing somebody gets you a lengthy prison term and a miserable life once released, not a free pass or easy escape every two weeks.weeks.
** Speeding Bullet may have SuperSpeed but his power has limits with an example being his inability to save a young girl stuck in a sink hole (The closest thing he can do is FastTunnelling but would cause cave-in on the girl accidentally) and [[{{Tearjerker}} see her die while acting as 'morale support']].
** Sometimes, hero can become [[FormerlyFit overweight after some times]] (one of the causes include PostStressOvereating) with negative consequences. Such as Sizeshifter's weight made him cause exhaustion for birds and caused him to became less stealthy. AnIcePerson lost majority portion of her power as her weight made her less cold.

* 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.
