* OutsideContextVillain: The Battle Beast. He first appeared early in the series when Mark was possibly the strongest person on Earth, at a time when no Viltrumites other than Mark and Nolan had been seen, and was a apparently nothing but an EliteMook for the issue's villain. Then he easily ''beat Mark nearly to death'', and only retreated because he had expected a greater challenge. He has since come back to fight Viltrumites.

* AtlantisIsBoring: Provides the page image; at first the most notable thing about the place is the fact that Omni-Man killed the king. The trope gets decidedly less straight the second time the place is visited, with Lethan trying to keep the city running despite the attack of Octoboss and other standard superhero/supervillain intrigue.

* AchillesHeel: Viltrumites have few weaknesses. The easiest one to exploit is their equilibrium. Due to the fact that Viltrumites can fly, they hve incredibly advanced and complex inner ears. This makes them extremely vulnerable to high-pitched frequencies. It can do everything from causing severe pain to inducing a waking-dream coma, and can possibly kill them outright. At the very least it immediately disrupts their ability to fly.
