* {{Foreshadowing}}: Very subtle, and bordering on FridgeBrilliance, but in issue #9, Elsa notes that the team should be seeing "[[spoiler:devil dinosaurs]] tearing up the landscape." Two issues later, [[spoiler: we learn that Devil Dinosaur is the mastermind behind S.I.L.E.N.T.]]

WarrenEllis and Stuart Immonen's irreverent parody of {{Super Team}}s, which featured five relatively obscure {{Super Hero}}es fighting the forces of H.A.T.E., a [[HeroesRUs S.H.I.E.L.D-style organization]] who were discovered to be in league with the Beyond Corporation, the current incarnation of their former rivals, [[NebulousEvilOrganization S.I.L.E.N.T.]] ([[FunWithAcronyms Who doesn't love a good acronym]]?)

** There are also some elements of SelfDeprecation: there's a lot of spoofing of ''ComicBook/{{Planetary}}'', ''ComicBook/GlobalFrequency'', ''ComicBook/TheAuthority'' and other Ellis team books.

Added DiffLines:

** The six consecutive splash pages (along with the box saying people need to buy six issues to line them all together) is a nod to Jim Steranko's ComicBook/NickFury story where he did a similiar thing with two splash pages and telling the reader to buy two copies to put the full image together.

* Retirony: Subverted. Officer Mangel is introduced just a few days from retirement... and then proves to be such a colossal asshole and CorruptCop that the harm he experiences is [[AssholeVictim clearly deserved]], rather than a fate designed to gain audience sympathy.

* CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass: The members of ''Nextwave'' maybe appear to be neurotic, incompetent jerks, and well they are. But they're good fighters when pointed in the right direction.
* CurbStompBattle: Of the fifteen or so costumed and named characters Number None gathered up, all of them save Forbrush Man were very easily disposed of. Even when it was five against one odds.
* DeathIsCheap: DicussedTrope
