* FaceHeelTurn: [[spoiler:Dr. Druid]] in the 2015 series. Everyone always thought he was a self important asshole, but this combined with [[spoiler:his reputation as the worst Avenger, and the general disrespect his former teammates had for him after his death lead to him taking over Weirdworld as a cruel tyrant]]

* BroughtDownToBadass: [[spoiler:Warrior Woman drained the power of another Power Princess and left her for dead. It didn't slow her down very much. In fact, she fought her EvilCounterpart well enough without them]].

* BroughtDownToBadass: [[spoiler:Warrior BreakingTheFellowship: [[spoiler: By the end of the series, the Squadron Supreme suffer internal conflicts and it actually leads to blows in the case of Hyperion and Nighthawk. The former gets sick to fighting good people, and being led by a guy who won't even let in his plans. The others feel the same way, and they disband, going their separate ways]].

** This happens to [[spoiler:Jim Hammond, the original Human Torch]] at the series' climax. After Nighthawk attempted to immobilize him, it seemed that the darts that he fired at him had actually shut him down permanently - killing him. It turns out that it only changed his powers, leading him the ability to emit radiation, but not burst into flame - making him more of a "Human Reactor".

* NeverTheSelvesShallMeet: Hyperion and Doctor Spectrum get sent back in time at one point and [[OurTimeTravelIsDifferent the process]] renders them intangible in any point in history they already exist. Not unlike how it worked in Silver Age DC.


Added DiffLines:

* PretenderDiss: As Jim Hammond confronts the Squadron for a second time, he gives Nighthawk a KirkSummation that, among other things, points out hawks aren't even nocturnal hunters like [[ShoutOut bats or owls]].

* SetRightWhatOnceWentWrong: After getting caught in Doctor Doom's time machine during the assault on the Baxter Building, Hyperion and Doctor Spectrum are thrown back into the time period leading up to [[spoiler:Namor's death. They successfully prevent his execution taking place, form an uneasy alliance with Namor, and they return to the present. It's implied that had they not, their future would've led to [[Comicbook/CivilWarII the Civil War escalating]] [[BreakingTheFellowship and even their team divided into factions]]]].



* WhiteAndGreyMorality: The Squadron Supreme mean well, but their extreme methods have come into conflict with other heroes a few times too many, something that they acknowelge. Jim Hammond, the original Human Torch regards them as fanatical, perhaps even somewhat deluded, [[spoiler:particularly after they killed his old friend Namor]].

** The Squadron's assault on Atlantis, due to Namor being responsible for the destruction of their separate worlds. [[spoiler:It ends with Namor's execution]].
** Naturally, those who were allied with Namor in his early years, eg. Jim Hammond (the first Human Torch) and his former sidekick Thomas Raymond aka "Toro" aren't pleased to learn of a group calling themselves heroes after [[spoiler:killing their old friend]] and individually move to stop them.

** The team encounter Blue Marvel and discover that he's this during an otherwise perfect infiltration of a research facility working on creating black holes. In fact, Blue Marvel was so CrazyPrepared that if tipped Nighthawk that it may not be from Blue Marvel's foresight, and rather the [[Comicbook/CivilWarII precognition of someone]].
