* GenreSavvy: Max Thunderstone. Arguably also a case of WrongGenreSavvy, as he thinks he's the "hero" of the story and the Hand are the villains.

* FridgeBrilliance: What if Feely ''is'' a pedophile, and the Filth (as the "cleaners" of society) are his mind's way of coping, by providing the illusion of an outside group willing to "clean" him up?

** In "Us. vs. Them", Sharon Jones

to:

** In "Us. vs. Them", Sharon Jones was turned into a living machine by a depraved billionaire.
** Secret Original, Ultra-Humanitarian, and Eve manage to pierce the Fourth Wall. The results of two-dimensional beings trying to exist in a three-dimensional space are... not pretty.



* BrokenAngel: Secret Original was once his universe's version of ComicBook/{{Superman}}, but he tried to BreakTheFourthWall, and though his superpowers saved him from dying, he was left almost completely paralyzed and in constant pain.

* AnythingThatMoves: Tex Porneau is the living embodiment of this trope, going so far as to [[spoiler: create a breed of human-sized flying sperm so that he can LITERALLY FUCK THE ENTIRE CITY OF LOS ANGELES]]. Anders Klimakks, with his career as a porn star/[[spoiler: bio-engineered sex god]] and his nearly 900-woman mating record, is also a perfect example of this trope.
* AscendedFanboy: Max starts out describing himself as this. Then [[spoiler: after he's killed, the body he's worked so hard to get into comic book superhero shape is hijacked and used by another aspiring superman]].
* BodyHorror: Sharon Jones in "Us v Them".

* BrokenAngel: Secret Original.
* TheCallKnowsWhereYouLive
* CaptainErsatz: According to Morrison, the story started out as a pitch for Marvel Comics' ''ComicBook/{{Nick Fury}}'', but was seen as too strange and radical a change for the character - i.e. the reader being told that [[spoiler: Fury is in fact an injectable fake personality inserted into several unassuming saps over the years by a shadowy uber-organisation.]]
** Nevertheless, a few years later Brian Bendis and Jonathan Hickman created a vaguely similar idea for Fury - his organisation, SHIELD, has been puppets of his enemy, HYDRA, since its creation - and it was published.

Other references to religion and cosmology are sprinkled throughout the story.
