** Oddly averted with more difficult math -- while 113 women in a small town being pregnant sounds like a large number, about 3.13% of women are pregnant at any time. Adding in the male half of the population, this comes to just over 8000 people in Pederson, and doesn't even account for multiple births.

* TheCape: Patriot set out to be this due to being a huge superhero fan, but it was the capeless Matthew Bright who better embodies the ideals of this kind of hero. He wanted to help people so badly that he got a fake identity in order to be a police officer, since Specials were banned from any government service. At one point an investigation into some bombings results in several fellow officers being trapped in a burning building. To use his powers to save them means exposing himself as a Special, losing his job and being subject to a media circus, as well as the scorn of his friends. Matthew's inner thoughts says it all. -->'''Matthew:''' "I signed on to save lives. If I meant that, then I had to do what was necessary. Or it was all a lie. Whoever did this was smart, all right. Lead me on a wild goose-chase. And now my men are trapped inside the building I didn't search. I can't let them die. I refuse. Damn the exposure, '''I refuse'''.

* ImmunityDisability: One man's power is invulnerability from external harm--but this also leaves him highly insensitive to any form of touch, except on the back of his tongue, where he could still taste. He developed an eating disorder and became an indestructible obese man.

* FeelNoPain: One of the Supers doesn't feel anything when he's hit (and is functionally invulnerable)... but on the other hand, he can't feel anything but taste, which is why he's obese.

* NoSell: Subverted. One guy is completely invulnerable, but he's one of the first to be killed [[spoiler:by asphyxiation.]]

* WritersCannotDoMath: The magazine in issue #9 is dated July 2012. However, in issue #22, which is supposed to set years later, it's stated that Randy Fisk unsuccessfully ran for President in 2008 and 2012, before winning in 2016. It's also stated that he was 48 in 2008, meaning that he was born around 1960. However, earlier it's said that the flash occurred at the end of the '60s, and all Specials were born not long after that.
