* TheGreatPoliticsMessUp: While the story's present-day period is never established, it's suggested to be on or near 1989, when the comic's first issue was published. Reading it in hindsight can feel rather anachronistic, given how much of the story relies on ColdWar tensions and the RedScare (particularly an exchange of warheads between the US and the USSR).

What follows is a whirlwind romp from war-torn Russia to the streets of Washington D.C., while simultaneously strolling across time, space, and alternate dimensions. As Alfie's power grows, his sanity slips even further, with everyone else trying to make sense of it all. Ultimately, the complex storyline leaves both John and Alfie finding out more about themselves than they ever wanted to know, with an ending as twisted as the beginning.

* BloodlessCarnage: Both played straight and averted. As a ComicsCode-approved title, ''Nth Man'' avoided graphic depictions of blood or gore. Even so, it never hesitated to show the brutality of combat or the senseless deaths of war, including the aftermath of a mass execution.
