* BrokenAesop: In the foreword for the book, Creator/GarthEnnis says the point of the book was to point out how super heroes aren't needed. Except the titular character was only able to save the day by flying a bomb into space. Also, the pro says the heroes are never in any real danger, only for the Green lantern expy to be killed a few pages later.
* CastOfExpies: The League of Honor are all obvious parodies of the Justice League. There's also The Viewer, the alien that granted The Pro her powers and a parody of The Watcher of Marvel comics. The Pro herself is basically ComicBook/PowerGirl if she was a surly hooker.

* DisproportionateRetribution: The titular character inflicts this on the guy who short-changes her when she was servicing him. For the first slight, she has a bunch of prostitutes shove painful objects up his ass. Later, she retaliates to him attempting to shoot her son by ripping his jaw off.
* ExcrementStatement: The main character at one point urinates on a villain after beating her up.



* [[UngratefulBastard Ungrateful Bitch]]: The prostitute goes on a 3-4 page rant about why superheroes suck, despite the fact that if it wasn't for the Superman-expy, ''her son would be dead.''
