Added DiffLines:

* 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]].

* ItsPersonal:
** 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.

* HeadbuttingHeroes: Nearly every issue so far thanks to their WellIntentionedExtremist tendencies. They eventually lampshade that so far since [[spoiler:killing Namor]], all they've managed to do is [[LetsYouAndHimFight get into fights with the good guys]].

** 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]].

* AsskickingEqualsAuthority: [[spoiler: Warrior Woman]] gains control of an army of multiple alien species known as the Myriad by slaughtering all her challengers in a gladiatorial arena on a distant planet. It's suggested that Doctor Druid's magic should have been enough to subjugate them, but being the BloodKnight that she is, she intentionally chose this method.
