* MeaningfulName: Edwin Alva is clearly an allusion to Thomas Alva Edison. Thomas Edison was seen as progressive in his time for hiring foreign-born and black engineers to work for him - and reviled today for ripping them off and taking all the profits for their ideas.
** Of course, Edison did that to ''everyone'' - just ask Auguste and Louis Lumière.

Added DiffLines:

* WeCanRuleTogether: When Alva disovers that Curtis is Hardware, he offers Curtis a Vice-presidency and unlimited access to company resources if Curtis agrees to be Alva's own super-enforcer. Alva also promises to curb his extra-legal activities since he won't need them with Curtis/Hardware at his side. [[spoiler:Notably, this is one of the few times the hero actually ''accepts'' the offer.]]

* AntiHero: Hardware, very much so. On the SlidingScaleOfAntiHeroes he starts out as a Type IV, but eventually mellows out into more of a Type III.
