Added DiffLines:

* MinorInjuryOverreaction: [[spoiler:Supermodel]]'s StartOfDarkness. [[spoiler:She]] had spent years as the super who represented the embodiment of physical beauty, so acquiring a barely noticeable facial scar caused [[spoiler:her]] to snap.


Added DiffLines:

* SecretTestOfCharacter: Velveteen's first experience with an AlternateUniverse was one set up by [[spoiler:Santa Claus]]. She was shown a world where she had the life she had dreamed of back when she was a Junior Super Patriot, and all she had to do in order to keep it was write off an old friend who she had thought of as an enemy for years. But she insisted on finding her way back to her home reality.


Added DiffLines:

* ThouShaltNotKill: Played with. Heroes will kill if absolutely necessary, but they generally only do so if the villains escalate things to the point where lethal force is necessary first. SPI loses the moral high ground during the climax of the second book when they use lethal force first.

Added DiffLines:

* WithUsOrAgainstUs: SPI has managed to get virtually every non-SPI super classified as a supervillain, often for no grounds other than the fact that they don't work for SPI.

* [[spoiler:After Jackie got hit with a Cosmic RetCon that turned her into Jack Claus, her parents retroactively decided that they weren't capable of caring for a child, and gave her to Santa for adoption when she was an infant.]]

* AppliedPhlebotinum: Starting with irradiated maple syrup and going from there with one bizarre origin story after another. Velveteen's powers came from a latent mutation that was activated when she slept with a radioactive bunny plushy too many times.

Added DiffLines:

* InfantImmortality: Averted, roughly half of all Junior Super Patriots don't live to get an offer to become full Super Patriots (who have an average lifespan of 35). Part of the reason Vel wanted out was having to attend the funerals of half a dozen teammates.


Added DiffLines:

* TrustPassword: Teams are required to come up with one to check if they've ended up in an alternate dimension. [[spoiler:Then Action Dude ends up in one where his counterpart isn't allergic to blueberries, and thus his wife in that dimension didn't understand that his asking for some was a password.]]

Added DiffLines:

* SlaveToPR: SPI forces their heroes to live their lives to maximize their marketability. Thus Action Dude was forced to hide his faith because Marketing didn't think a Jewish superhero would sell action figures. [[spoiler:Yelena]] was forced to pretend to a different sexuality for similar reasons, and Velveteen was forced to break up with her first boyfriend because Marketing ruled that support heroes weren't allowed to date front-liners.
