* DeconReconSwitch: It's a deconstruction in showing how scary it would really be if a bunch of masked men with godlike powers started showing up, but then reconstructs it to show how awesome and heroic it would be too, especially when they save the day.

* OneHundredPercentAdorationRating: Everyone ''loves'' Captain America, to the point that he never gets slandered the way other heroes do.



** The Thing deals with this too, despite him being part of the beloved Fantastic Four.



* BewareTheSuperman: When the Human Torch and Namor first appeared on the scene, this was most peoples reaction, even after the Torch began to operate as a hero. It mostly fell by the wayside with the introduction of Captain America, but flares up again during the anti-mutant hysteria in the 60's, which bleeds over onto other heroes as well.



%%* InnocentBystanderSeries

%%* InnocentBystanderSeries* InnocentBystanderSeries: The entire point of the series, showcasing just how it would feel to suddenly be surrounded by metahumans.


Added DiffLines:

* RageBreakingPoint: The anti-mutant riots in the 60's are kicked off by the original Sentinels going rogue during the television debate between Xavier and Bolivar Trask. Phil notes that they're not really specifically anti-mutant so much as the straw that broke the camels back on a population who's been living in mortal fear almost constantly for 20 years and are now just lashing out with mutants as a convenient excuse.


Added DiffLines:

* TheEndIsNigh: Phil and his family encounter a street preacher loudly announcing the end of the world when they visit a zoo, and claims that superbeings are heralds of the Apocalypse. Phil tells him off for scaring his daughters. Ironically, he's not entirerly wrong, as this is the day Galactus arrives on Earth.

Added DiffLines:

* {{Irony}}: Phil has nothing but disdain for Peter Parker, viewing him as a snot-nosed creep profiting from J. Jonah Jameson's obsessive vendetta against Spider-Man... whom Phil admires.

* ImproperlyPlacedFirearms: In the newsreel and the ending WW2 scene, the Japanese and German soldiers are somehow almost all equipped with classic gangster [[CoolGuns/SubmachineGuns Tommy Guns]] instead of the MP-40 or Arikara rifle. Justified, though, as the Golden Age comics often depicted Mooks using the Thompson M1921/M1928, due to it being the typical "[[GoodGunsBadGuns bad guy gun]]" at the time.

* YouAreWhatYouHate: When Phil learns about his daughters harboring a mutant girl, he looks in her eyes and compares it to the concentration camp survivors he met during the war. He realizes the anti-mutant bigotry he participated in is no different than the Nazis.
