* BlackBestFriend: Averted with Marty, in that Marty is a fully-developed character in his own right. While he is Vince's best friend, he is also a traitor. It's implied that this is under duress. Played semi-straight with his mentor Max, except for having to tolerate his side job as an armed robber.

* XMeetsY: ''Series/{{Heroes}}'' meets Golden-Age comics. Given that the show is on NBC and uses some of the same visual motifs (like the way the title cards fade into the scene, and the comparability of the in-universe's comic panels to 8th Wonders) comparisons to ''Heroes'' are inevitable.

** During the robbery montage in the pilot, one of the costume sets the gang wears strongly resembles a cross between the nun costumes worn in TheTown, mixed with clown attire.

* MobBossSuitFitting: It had a scene with Peter Fleming and Scales meeting at a tailor to discuss buisness. Although Scales is just there to talk, Fleming insists on buying him a suit as well.

* TheCastShowoff: Only took two episodes to get Summer Glau into a dance leotard, even if it was only for a few seconds of an aerial silk stance.


Added DiffLines:

* PopCulturalOsmosis: Probably best known now by ''Series/{{Community}}'' fans for being the inspiration for Abed's CatchPhrase "Six seasons and a movie!"

With the world believing Vince dead, he takes on the persona of his son's favorite superhero, a Franchise/{{Batman}}-esque figure known as [[TitleDrop The Cape]]. The circus troupe trains him in a combination of martial-arts, stage magic, and [[BadassCape using a specially designed cape as a weapon]]. Teaming up with the Carnival and an [[IntrepidReporter investigative blogger]] called [[SummerGlau Orwell]] who has an interest in bringing Fleming down, Vince sets out to expose ARK, save the city and [[ClearMyName clear his name]].

* IntrepidReporter: In a nod to the modern mediascape, she's a blogger, rather than an Old Media type. Since she's played by SummerGlau, we get the HotScoop trope thrown in.

* GoldenAge: It can be argued to be a modernization of this era; it is not quite as ludicrous as some of the things the SilverAge was (in)famous for.

** In "Tarot", Orwell uses a fake name: Diane [[GailSimone Simone]].
** "Scales on a Train" is a not-so-subtle nod to ''SnakesOnAPlane''.
