* ReallySevenHundredYearsOld: several characters. Snow was born on January 1 1900 and still looks like a very vigorous forty-something. Anna Hark and Jakita Wagner are the daughters of Century Babies, and both of them are around 70 by the time of the comic; Anna estimates that she and probably by extension Jakita) will live for roughly 300 years. John Stone, thanks to some very neat drugs, has aged about 5 years since 1965.

* KickTheDog: The revelation that the Four slaughtered the entire population of a parallel earth so that they "had somewhere to store their weapons". With their abilities, they could just as easily have accessed an ''uninhabited'' parallel.

** In a flashback in the first issue, a quantum computer creates an imaginary Earth with a set of Franchise/{{Justice League|of America}} analogues. Ellis even asked Cassaday to draw them as such. Other instances are The Four (of [[Creator/MarvelComics Marvel's]] ComicBook/FantasticFour) and a technological take on Captain Marvel (Creator/DCComics).

** A possible explanation is that Dowling doesn't ''have'' any powers beyond his formidable intellect. This would make his situation that much more pitiable, as his motivation for all his villainy is the feeling that he deserves the sort of gifts granted to the "century babies" like Elijah Snow. If the same incident that gifted the other members of the Four with powers left him untouched, his frustration must be unimaginable.
