* BiblicalBadGuy: Uniquely for this trope in the Ghost Rider tie-in it's ''Adam''. He had became obsessed with undoing his mistake of original sin by training people from infancy to host the Ghost Rider, so he could use their power to burn sin out of humanity. This has the effect of essentially lobotomizing people, leaving them incapable of anything greater than basic survival.



* FullSetBonus: Post event Sin reveals that she learned from Skadi how to use all the hammers strapped together as a flail to power a doomsday weapon similar to the Destroyer with which she could destroy the world.



* GottaCatchEmAll: Post event there is now conflict between multiple parties over collecting the hammers. The heroic community wants to lock them away, Sin wants them for an EvilPlan she learned while possessed by Skadi and Valkyrie wants to banish them permanently with a HeroicSacrifice only she can perform.



* PokeInTheThirdEye: Happens to anyone who tries to read/possess one of the Worthy. The ''ComicBook/AvengersAcademy'' tie-in has Veil trying to possess Skirn, only to be flooded by visions of hundreds of people crucified to Yggdrasil. And when the X-Men finally get Juggernaut's helmet off, Emma Frost doesn't have a fun time when she tries to mind control him.

* WhatTheHellHero: Amadeus, Thunderstrike, X-23, Araña and Power Man find themselves teleported onto a flying ship with no idea how or why. Most of them are worried about being away from their families as this crisis goes on. Eventually they figure out Amadeus brought them there to function as a team that's very effective by his calculations. They call him out on it and, after averting the crisis, X-23 delivers a GroinAttack to him for his troubles.

* DemonicPossession: Those chosen to wield the Hammers of the Worthy find their personalities overwritten or at least subsumed by the deity to whom their respective hammer belongs. Because of this, the villains of this piece are a mixture of actual bad guys like Sin (Skadi), Attuma (Nerkkod), [[ComicBook/{{X-Men}} the Juggernaut]] (Kuurth), and the Grey Gargoyle (Mokk), and heroic or antiheroic characters whose bodies have been taken over by the evil spirits within these hammers, like ComicBook/IncredibleHulk (Nul) and [[ComicBook/FantasticFour the Thing]] (Angrir).

* TookALevelInBadass: Juggernaut, '''big time'''. He was by far the most powerful Worthy of them all[[note]]Though Skadi explicitly claimed that Nul and Angrir were the strongest of the Worthy, they fared worse against Thor than Kurrth did against the X-men.[[/note]]. Just to elaborate: As [[TheJuggernaut his name]] and history says, he was nigh-unstoppable ''even before'' being chosen by the Serpent. As Kuurth, he lost all of his old (already few) weaknesses, he couldn't be teleported away[[note]]Which Nul was vulnerable to.[[/note]], he couldn't be attacked from the inside, he was literally able to walk through air, he shrugged off telepathic assault and of course completely ignored physical assault. Even when his Juggernaut-powers were transferred to Colossus, he still overpowered the guy and only narrowly lost due to his own former power, aka Unstoppable Momentum. In short, an already unstoppable force was made [[UpToEleven even more unstoppable]].

*** If is the first one: Odin has faced down far stronger opponents than the Serpent in the past without even a shudder, and has undergone a degree of BadassDecay in regards to just how powerful he really should be (in the past its been demonstrated he can destroy entire ''galaxies''). The Serpent is powerful, but it doesn't even come close to matching the power of, say, [[Comicbook/DoctorStrange Dread]] [[DimensionLord Dormammu]], or the various other things he has succesfully defeated before.

* ADayInTheLimelight[=/=]MerchandiseDriven: The series, whilst a CrisisCrossover featuring important roles for several of Marvel's A-List heroes, is more focused on [[ComicBook/TheMightyThor Thor]] & CaptainAmerica. [[SarcasmMode Coincidentally]], [[Film/{{Thor}} both]] [[Film/CaptainAmericaTheFirstAvenger characters]] had [[SummerBlockbuster Summer Blockbusters]] released during the publication of the series.

* NeverSayDie: [[spoiler: A subversion of this happens when one of the Avengers Academy students asks [[Comicbook/TheFalcon Falcon]] about [[CaptainAmerica Bucky Cap]] being stabbed, he initially lies to them saying that it was critical and they are trying to save him, until realizing he is treating young heroes that just fought a [[WarIsHell hellish battle]] like children and told them the truth that he is dead.]]

** WordOfGod states that this ([[spoiler:Bucky dying & Steve becoming CaptainAmerica again]]) was always going to happen in the main ongoing.

* DefacementInsult: The community of Bleachville, which was long rife with racial tensions between its majority-white population and a neighboring reservation, experienced a rash of vandalism warning that the "Red Nation will rise again". [[spoiler:The vandalism was later revealed to have been carried out by a bunch of white racists hoping to start a riot to wipe out the reservation's inhabitants]].

At some point during the Second World War, the RedSkull [[{{Ghostapo}} enacted an arcane ritual under the orders of Adolf Hitler]], causing a mysterious artifact to fall from the heavens and crash land in Antarctica. Upon locating the artifact--a large hammer, supposedly tied to the Norse goddess Skadi--and learning that he is incapable of lifting it, the Skull has the Thule Society seal it away in a fortress and guard it with their lives. Fast forward to the present day, where [[DaddysLittleVillain Sin]], believing the hammer to be her inheritance, comes to collect; and after killing the guards and getting her hands on the hammer, she proves capable of lifting it. Of course, as with any mystical weapon there is a catch to wielding it, and this hammer is no exception; for, as the runic inscription on its shaft states,

** StrongAsTheyNeedToBe: With the little time that the Serpent got to show his strength, most of his power remains only in supposition; either he is a casual traducPlanet-Buster or a Universal Threat.
