* CaptainErsatz: ''[=PS238=]'' is ''made out of'' this trope. Two of the more outstanding examples are [[Franchise/{{Superman}} Atlas]] and [[ComicBook/GreenLantern Emerald Gauntlet]], although both have developed points of distinction from the originals as the series progresses. Among the students, there's also [[ComicBook/TheSandman "Murphy"]], the "Prince of Daydreams" (whose older sister is often mentioned in passing...), and [[SelfDemonstrating/DoctorDoom Victor Von Fogg]], heir of the Von Fogg family of supervillains.

* BewareTheSuperman: The Revenant mentions early on how metahumans often tend to dismiss baseline humanity, and it eventually comes into view that humanity has developed several checks and balances in an attempt to curb metahuman domination of society. [[spoiler:The Headmaster claims it's not going to be enough and that evolution of powers will see metahumanity grow beyond human control, which is why he founded Praetorian to try and do something about it.]]

** The Revenant, Tyler's mentor (who bears a [[CaptainErsatz striking resemblance]] to Franchise/{{Batman}}/MoonKnight, right down to most powered heroes not trusting him or thinking he's crazy).

* BrickJoke: A really weird one across two of the creator's comics, ''Webcomic/FullFrontalNerdity'' and this. In FFN, the gamers play a supers game and end up getting metaphorically clotheslined by the discovery that a lot of the "{{Muggle}}" [=NPCs=] have been developing powers in reaction to living in a world of supers, including abilities like sensing supers and subtle mind-control of supers as a kind of camouflage. Then in ''[=PS238=]'', [[spoiler:Cecil turns up with the "sensing supers" power and one starts wondering what other of these abilities joked about in FFN will also turn up...]]

And Cecil has joked that Tyler's superpower is to make other supers incapable of recognizing him as Moon Shadow...]]

* BoringButPractical: The problem that FISS have. Every super team has one and no one doubts that they are useful, but without flashy powers it can be hard to build a solid carrier or get noticed.

* HealingHands: Dr. Newby, the school medic, has this - fortunately for Tyler. He needs it. A lot. It's limited to physical injuries, however, and she can't do much when [[spoiler:Ambriel]] is very sick.
