Added DiffLines:

*NoRespectGuy: Hundred during his days as the Great Machine. Flashbacks often show the people Hundred tries to save or apprehend treating him with mockery at best and utter disdain at worst. It doesn't help that Hundred's activities as the Great Machine leave collateral damage that impact hundreds of New Yorkers such as screwing over commuters when he inadvertently shut down the LIRR line for hours when he tried to stop some young daredevils from "riding" the line by standing on the train for the entire train's trip.

* ArtShift: The single page of the comic that gets made of Hundred's life is drawn by a different artist and written by Creator/GrantMorrison. The art looks completely different, and the writing is all in first-person narration, something that ''Ex Machina'' never uses otherwise.

* AnimalsHateHim: A side-effect of Hundred gaining his powers is that animals are now extremely hostile to him. Pherson beleives it's because they can tell that he is failing to use his powers to help him, but his judgement is heavily skewed by his insanity.

Added DiffLines:

* NoSell: Suzanne thinks she has the advantage over Hundred as she's grabbed the "jammer" he helped develop that could block his powers. During thier fight, she hits the button [[spoiler: and nothing happens. Mitchell then reveals the "jammer" is just an old garage door opener he painted over and acted like it worked when Kremlin "tested" it on him. A stunned Suzanne thus realizes that this means Mitchell ''did'' fix the mayoral election.]]


Added DiffLines:

** As soon as it gets out that Hundred can only affect regular machines, he finds himself confronted by cops using bows and arrows.
** The police commissioner does try to pay tribute to Hundred by having a signal beam a light of his super-hero symbol in the sky. However, it's a cloudy night so Hundred can't see it.


Added DiffLines:

* TheReveal: In a confrontation, Mitchell basically reveals to Suzanne that [[spoiler: he did indeed use his powers to fix the mayoral election.]]

* WhamEpisode: The last issue, in which [[spoiler:Mitchell's character takes a sharp turn into villainy, and the threat of the Makers is implied to still be present]].

to:

* WellIntentionedExtremist: After getting the violet voice, Jack Pherson can "hear" animals and takes this to mean that all animals are sentient creatures. He feels morally obligated to "liberate" them from humanity. Hundred is only immune to this line of reasoning because the things he hears are machines, which are obviously not intelligent.
* WhamEpisode: The last issue, in which [[spoiler:Mitchell's character [[spoiler:Mitchell reveals that he's been less than moral all along and takes a sharp turn solid step over the line into villainy, and the villainy. The threat of the Makers is implied to still be present]].
