* MoralDissonance: [[spoiler: Magnus's eventual decision to destroy all robots, after the horrors of the Malev War have eroded all his sympathy on the matter. The resultant society is [[UtopiaJustifiesTheMeans actually pretty good, for humans at least,]] but it's cringe-inducing for fans who remember the sympathetic robot characters. It's not necessarily out of character for Magnus by that point (the war took its toll on him), but the creepy thing is that [[WhatTheHellHero none of the other human characters call him out on it.]] Scratch that, no -- the ''truly'' creepy thing is that the ''authors'' don't call him out on it. Needless to say, Jim Shooter was long gone and the book was under [[DependingOnTheWriter different management]] by that point. Perhaps they were aiming for [[{{Irony}} irony,]] but if so, it's so understated that you really can't tell.]]

Added DiffLines:

* DependingOnTheWriter: It's probably safe to say that if Creator/JimShooter had stayed on the title, Magnus's attitude toward [[spoiler: robot rights would not have undergone the ugly shift it did by the end of the Malev War.]]

* CrapsackWorld: The Valiant version certainly had [[UsefulNotes/TheDarkAgeOfComicBooks elements of this,]] but the Dark Horse version seems, well, [[IncrediblyLamePun darker.]]
