Complaining, and only one quote per page top
->''"Bill Jemas thought there was too much joy in the world, and thus attempted to get rid of it by creating a comic that sucks joy in like a vacuum and then incinerates it."'' -->--'''[[WebVideo/AtopTheFourthWall Linkara's]]''' quote from Marville #4 and his take on the comic.

* ViewersAreMorons: Issue #1 gives a summary on the people who are riffed on in the comic. Even the backstories for Batman, Superman, and Spider-Man are given. However, [[ViewersAreGeniuses it does not explain]] such things as Ron Perelman or controversy around the Atlanta Braves. ** Also, saying things such as ComicBook/{{Wolverine}} being the first human. ** Issue #6 is a long accusation towards everyone not buying the comic because they didn't get the deep meaningful message.

* AndNowForSomethingCompletelyDifferent: Marville #7 is... a submission guide for the then-upcoming Epic line of Marvel Comics. How anyone is supported to know this is unclear, since the cover is graced by the same Marville logo, the same Marville cover chick, and "EPIC" showing on the Series/WheelOfForutne board.

* CannotTellFictionFromReality: It is revealed that the religious debate part of this comic is not a parody, Bill Jemas fully believes all of what is being said. This including many debunked theories such as [[NinetyPercentOfYourBrain humans only using 10% brain power]], ApeShallNeverKillApe, and so on. Also much of the debate hangs on Wolverine being the first human being, who mutated from an ''otter''; backing up real-world debates about evolution and stuff by using comic book characters as evidence (and making them as weird as possible in the process...)

Yeah, there's a certain political ideology being pushed here.

* NonIndicativeName: So, ''Marville'' is supposed to be a PunBasedTitle playing on ''Series/{{Smallville}}''. Besides the cover of Issue #1, ''{{Smallville}}'' the series is never touched upon.

* PunBasedTitle: So, ''Marville'' is supposed to be a play on ''Series/{{Smallville}}'', but it's a one-time joke on the cover of the first issue and the series never even tries to be a satire or parody of the TV show.

* SexSells: As mentioned in CoversAlwaysLie, there were several covers featuring a very scantily clad woman who ''never showed up'' in the comics, with the covers being attributed to the fact Bill Jemas was losing a bet with Peter David. The desperation ramps up til you get bare ass, almost bare breasts, and Wolverine's claw in #5.

ths not sounds as an invoked example- this is not noted as wangst in-universe, basically.
* {{Wangst}}: [[invoked]] Mickey claims people should feel bad for the ''air molecules that humans destroy when they breathe.'' Keep in mind that nobody argues with her on this and this occurs during the philosophical portion of the comic, implying that Jemas thinks the same thing. --Or worse, this is intended as another (tangential) jab at liberals/environmentalists/secularists/youths/all of the above.

* PoliceAreUseless: To an insulting degree. In Issue #2, when Mickey says to a couple of officers that their work can't involve just eating donuts, one of them says it pretty much is. He adds that all they do is take homeless people to shelters and show up at crime scenes after the criminals have gone.
