''[=FreakAngels=]'' is a {{webcomic}} written by WarrenEllis, author of ''{{Nextwave}}''/''{{Transmetropolitan}}'', transhumanist and noted CrazyAwesome British person, with art by Paul Duffield.

Set [[AfterTheEnd six years after apocalyptic flooding destroys modern civilization]] (at least in Great Britain), the story follows the self-styled "[=FreakAngels=]" - a dozen 23-year-olds born at the exact same moment, all with purple eyes, pale skin and an array of mental powers that include telekinesis, telepathy, mind control, and unique individual gifts.

* BrainBleach: This is one among the many [=FreakAngel=] powers. It is applied (usually by Sirrka) to the traumatized people they encounter in Whitechapel. In the case that happens "on-screen" she doesn't even ask if the girl actually ''wants'' her brain bleached. In this case and others, it seems the FreakAngels apply brain bleach not just out of mercy, but also to keep their powers secret.
** The FreakAngels are often treated to TooMuchInformation from their friends, invoking this trope. See the Perverse Sexual Lust entry below.

* BullyingADragon: Hunting down a group of teenagers who can blow up stuff with their minds and deflect artillery strikes was bound to end up badly. Especially if said children would love to be left alone. Cue [[spoiler: a disaster that left Great Britain in ruins.]]

** An alternative explanation is that this foreshadows a future plot line. In the scene were Arkady says she doesn't remember visiting the market, she also talks about how she's considering the possibility of time travel. The implication seems to be that the Arkady who made the predictions in the marketplace might have been Arkady travelling back from some point in the future.

In one day, he gets punched and [[GroinAttack crotch-stomped]] by Kirk, pistol-whipped by Jack, and Arkady {{Mind Rape}}s him (see BewareTheNiceOnes above), leaving him crying in the fetal foetal position on the floor in a puddle of his own urine. A week later, he gets whacked in the face by Alice, [[CurbStompBattle curb-stomped]] by Sirkka and Caz, chained up in Kait's dungeon, shot in both legs by Kirk, blasted by Alice's shotgun, and finally [[spoiler:''shot through the head'', which he recovers from.]] [[MoralEventHorizon Not that he didn't deserve it.]]



* CameBackWrong: Mild but still there. [[spoiler:Mark's first "death" saw him tumble face down into a river with a bullet hole in the back of his head. He spent the healing process immersed in filthy water - so he was brain-damaged in addition to being paranoid and megalomaniacal.]]



* FaceHeelTurn: Mark is a rather tragic example. [[spoiler:In flashbacks he's an idealistic forteen year old boy who wanted to use the package to help mankind. In the present he's a psychopath who got exiled for mind controlling dozens of helpless civilians]]. Luke also seems to have had one sometime in the past (though admittedly he had some JerkAss tendencies in the flashbacks).

* HeterosexualLifePartners[=/=]HoYay: Kirk and Karl seem to only be able to stand each other, [[spoiler:tried to murder Mark]] and kept the secret to themselves, and despite their many interactions have the rare accomplishment of never fighting with one another. Though they don't get much focus, it's implied rather heavily they share a strong bond.
** As of episode 139, it's heavily implied that they're either an item or are at least considering it.

* HumansAreWhite: A side effect of the "package" is pale skin and purple eyes, which even Carolyn (black), Miki (Asian), and KK (possibly part Islander) have. They retain other racial characteristics, but people often have to look twice before figuring out what they are.

* NiceJobBreakingItHero: [[spoiler:The [=FreakAngels=] had initially wanted to simply cause a huge, showy, but not really lethal disaster, for the sake of getting the army off their back. Their ''severe'' underestimation of just how powerful they were, plus the amount of pain and frustration they poured into their efforts, along with Mark steering their efforts while his mental state was so unbalanced, caused them to instead bring about an immensely destructive disaster which pretty much ended civilization, at least in Britain.]]
