* The use of "[[DavidBowie Ziggy Stardust]]" for the scene where Andrew puts on his dad's costume and really starts giving in to his DarkSide; the lyrics basically sum up the entire story - three childhood friends who set out doing something they love, but the greatest of them (who's a DecoyProtagonist) is destroyed by going too far and it's up to his friend to put a stop to it.

* Matthew was not made aware of his uncle's [[spoiler: abusive behavior]] towards his cousin before [[spoiler: having to kill Andrew]]. It is possible [[spoiler: Andrew viewed Matt's rescue as support of his uncle's abuse]]. Such a gross betrayal ''on top of everything else Andrew had been through'' might turn anybody into an OmnicidalManiac. While from Matt's point of view, [[spoiler: Andrew wasn't making any sense and thought he had simply gone mad with power, when he didn't even know what had been going on. Except that he feels bad for leaving his side.]]

* Think of the movie from Andrew's mom's perspective. You're so sick you can barely get out of bed and are in pain most days. Your husband drinks away all your money and abuses your son. You can't protect him because of your illness. You're son doesn't have any good friends, so when you die, he'll be alone with the man who abuses him. Suddenly he makes two good friends, [[spoiler: only for one of them to die unexpectedly in a storm. And that's just everything she would know about before she died.

Added DiffLines:

** Also, Matt seems to have his own special talent in the form of defensive barriers, though in a different form than Andrew's. Whereas Andrew's defenses take the form of violent shockwaves that push things away, Matt makes personal forcefields, showcasing how he let's people in close, but is still guarded and cautious. It also shows in his battle with Andrew, where he comes out with barely a scratch despite having a bus dropped on him.

Added DiffLines:

** It's also possible that after all he's gone through, his father's relentless abuse, Steve's death that he's indirectly responsible for, his mother's death despite his best efforts, and the blinding pain he's no doubt in despite the painkillers, Andrew might [[DeathSeeker WANT someone to kill him.]]

* The three boys show elements of PersonalityPowers. Andrew, the loner who wants to be stronger and actively pushes people away, develops his telekinesis control faster than the others. Steve, the industrious go-getter, is the first to try moving really big objects and the first to figure out how to fly. Matt wants to be unique, but he's overly cautious and is thus the slowest to develop of the three, but ultimately becomes the most powerful by the end when he takes matters into his own hands.

* Why does Andrew continue to fight Matt at the end of the film? Stop and consider what Andrew repeats throughout the fight, that he is an Apex Predator. What do most Apex Predators do when they are challenged by another one of their kind? They fight in order to establish ''dominance''. Andrew sees Matts stubborn refusal to get out of his way as challenging him for the role of the ''Alpha male''.
