* 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.''

Added DiffLines:

* AbusiveParents: The Pro herself is rather verbally abusive towards her infant son, doesn't bother to dress him properly, and smokes right in front of his face while breastfeeding. Some of the other stuff wrong ''might'' be justified by her being too poor to really give him a decent life's living, but that doesn't excuse a lot of her behaviour.

* InformedWrongness: The heroes are attacked for not stopping 9/11 and for not being willing to destroy whole schools to take out one bad guy. But they point out they were busy with another crisis and the pro does not counteract the WonderWoman expy pointing out as vigilantes they have no right to decide to take a life.
