all. [[note]] Though comics that are not LongRunners usually either avert this one, or justify it.[[/note]]
* StatusQuoIsGod: Prevalent, with [[VillainsActHeroesReact heroes preserving status quo]] and all changes being mostly cosmetic or temporary. Even in books that avert it, there's often a period of relative stability/routine adventuring, either in the {{Backstory}}, or the first act.
