Unlike many popular comics, this series stays surprisingly true to AnyoneCanDie. Much more often than not, a character's death is irreversible, and some of the partings are [[TearJerker especially moving]]. At least in the earlier parts of the series, whenever a character would die, he'd get a replacement, one with a similar class of powers (substituting Sasquatch for [[spoiler: Thunderbird]], for instance). This was balanced by the fact that at least some of the characters got happy endings, either in the form of permanent vacation or being able to go back to their home realities and pick up their lives where they left off.

* [[EarthIsTheCenterOfTheUniverse Earth Is The Center Of The Multiverse]]: The Exiles are tasked to prevent the multiverse from collapsing by fixing problems on alternate Earths. The only time they don't is the one time Earth is already obliterated, and even then the success of their mission restores it as a side benefit.



* ForWantOfANail: Morph noted that most of the bad realities had the common thread of ComicBook/TheMightyThor not arriving on Earth.

** The evil Mimic the team encounters learns the only difference between he and the Exiles Mimic, which he had assumed had a pampered life to turn out so noble, is that he chose to accept Xavier's offer. This inspires his HeelFaceTurn.
** One mission involves them averting an invasion by a Deathbird lead Shi'ar by inadvertently making Earth look unappealingly polluted from [[ItMakesSenseInContext buying the last danish at a bakery]].

Their missions take them across a wide variety of dimensions, some of which are different takes on MarvelComics' main setting, the Marvel Universe (or Earth-616). In other cases, they visit the nooks and crannies of Marvel's long publishing history, including ComicBook/TheNewUniverse of the 80's, and the 2099 setting (where they even recruit 2099's Spider-Man).
