** And for a GreenDay [[WaxingLyrical reference]].
* ForWantOfANail: Apparantly according to [[spoiler:George]] if Alexis didn't see the memo and breakout the descendants in stasis the world becomes a [[CrapsackWorld crapsack one]] within six months or so. Since she did, it looks like the world is instead heading to a Golden Age.

The entire series revels in playing with ComicBookTropes and rejecting UsefulNotes/TheDarkAgeOfComicBooks. WordOfGod even states that early versions were a blatant TakeThat at Marvel's [[Comicbook/CivilWar Civil War]] and that as a whole, it strives to find the sweet spot between the SilverAge and UsefulNotes/{{the Bronze Age|OfComicBooks}}.

* TheBechdelTest: Lampshaded in one conversation that has been 100% about dating and boys, capped off with a character mentioning that she's probably going to fail the test she's studying for, administered by a Professor Bechdel.



* ShoutOut: Many. Especially the names of Alloy's sentient, metal tentacles, [[Webcomic/SluggyFreelance Isp and Osp]].

* NinetiesAntiHero: Deconstructed, any character that has the motivation and personality of one is a straight up villain here. See Samael: His [[TakeThat defining characteristic]]? [[RobLiefeld Pouches]], lots of pouches.
