* ClarkKenting: Played straight, somehow.

to:

* ClarkKenting: Played straight, somehow. Lampshaded very early on (before Mark reveals his identity to anyone) - Charlotte doesn't like them, and Abby thinks they're too distracting.

* CallBack: When Mark discusses giving up on being Crusader [[spoiler: for the sake of their imminent child]], Abby reminds him of what she said back when they were still dating - she loved him for being both Mark and the Crusader, and she wouldn't want him to give up either one.

* CallBack: When Mark discusses giving up on being Crusader [[spoiler: for the sake of their imminent child]], Abby reminds him of what she said back when they were still dating - she loved him for being both Mark and the Crusader, and she wouldn't want him to give up either one. Also, in the finale, there's a call back to the wedding. [[spoiler: Just as Mark and Abby both used TimeTravel and disguise magic to watch their nuptials incognito, the future version of their son, with Mark's powers, disguises himself as Major Might in part to be around for his birth.]]



* OvernightAgeUp: Major Might when he uses his powers; as a [[ComicBook/{{Shazam}} Captain Marvel]] CaptainErsatz, he's an adolescent when he's not using his powers.



* SuperpowerfulGenetics: Discussed, as Doc Karma is incapable of determining just what, if any, powers the potential offspring of Abby and Mark will have. [[spoiler: Once the child is born, Doc Karma is finally able to tell that Jaime will get [[FlyingBrick his father's power set]].]]



* TheUnfavorite: Quincy is this to the Tennyson family. He's a SmallNameBigEgo broadcaster who had a ''very'' short NFL career. He pretty much ignores what anyone else might want, and it grates on his entire family to no end. Even his mother isn't shy about slipping a shot at him in for the hell of it.

* InformedAbility: While Darkblade's deductive skills ''are'' played straight now and then, more often than not they're brought up in the humorous context of him failing to deduce something (such as the mystery behind ''{{Lost}}'', or deducing something that was pretty obvious (such as how a villain obsessed with the number three would attack the Third National Bank at three o'clock on March 3rd).

* BetterTheDevilYouKnow: Something Abby and Amazonia discuss about Mark's mother while drunk [[spoiler: after Abby's gown fitting]]. Mark's mother may be tough as nails and BrutallyHonest, but you know where you stand with her. As Amazonia puts it, Mark's mother didn't ''like'' her but was upfront about it; Amazonia's own mother is passive-aggressive.



* BroughtDownToNormal: Mark gives up his powers for 24 hours so that he can have a day without interruption with Abby. Unlike many examples, though, it's not problematic (it wears off right on schedule, and Darkblade covers for him).

* DudeWheresMyRespect: While Crusader is certainly popular enough, both among the populace at large and amongst other heroes, his endorsement deals (comics, movies, etc.) are fairly pitiful compared to other heroes'. He's particularly resentful towards the popularity of Arachnerd's movie, doubled because his best friend Darkblade actually financed the movie. [[spoiler:He mellows out somewhat on the issue, particularly when he learns that Arachnerd, as a CaptainErsatz of {{Spider-Man}}, was struggling to make ends meet and balance his social life with his heroing life before the endorsement deal.]]
** It also didn't help that at the time that the movie came out, [[spoiler: it was his tenth anniversary of becoming the Crusader, and no one noticed. Imagine if everyone forgot your 30th birthday, and you get a glimpse of what he was feeling.]]

to:

* DudeWheresMyRespect: DrowningMySorrows: Amazonia does this twice with ambrosia, first at [[spoiler: Abby's gown fitting]] and at the latter's [[spoiler: wedding]]. The first time Abby joins her, and they actually get to bond quite a bit.

** Amazonia also gets this on her homeworld. Due to being the youngest in a large family, she's pretty much ignored [[spoiler: until her mother gets a stroke and she has to fill in as queen]]. As she points out to Abby, she's living in another dimension and doing much better.


Added DiffLines:

* FalseReassurance: When Amazonia is watching Abby and Mark together, she asks if she will ever [[spoiler: walk down the aisle]] like that with someone she loves. Her mother says in response that many women in their family have done well and are unmarried.

* {{Adorkable}}: Crusader basically gets called out for being a bit of a geek multiple times, such as how he ''always'' makes a joke about the NBA logo when he visits Paul and his basketball court; Darkblade has his moments when he indulges as well, like his insistence at not only attending trivia nights, but getting exactly 60% right to not draw attention.



** Most superheroes have {{Muggles}} for parents, while the heroes tend to be the MageBornOfMuggle kind. In one timeline [[spoiler: Mark died fighting the Evil Brain while in the actual timeline Windstar dies]]. The parents in question have to endure their child's death being questioned, since DeathIsCheap, while they deal with the reality of the grief. Some have to undergo multiple times.

* FriendOrIdolDecision: Amazonia and Darkblade face one - Amazonia is due to be crowned the new queen of Leandia, and they have to either have her renounce the crown and accept exile from her home, him give up his crimefighting and the Darkblade legacy, or they'd have to break up. [[spoiler: In part because she much prefers life on Earth to Leandia even without the burden of leadership, Amazonia gives up the crown.]]



* MostCommonSuperpower: Hello there, Amazonia!

to:

* MostCommonSuperpower: Hello there, Amazonia!Amazonia! It's genetic, too - when one of Zoe's sisters temporarily visits Earth to be Amazonia [[spoiler: while Zoe is preparing to potentially become the new queen]], she's practically just a PaletteSwap of her sister visually.



* TheRival: Amazonia for Abby; eventually, the two women mellow out toward each other. Yes, alcohol was involved.

to:

* TheRival: Amazonia for Abby; eventually, the two women mellow out toward each other. Yes, alcohol was involved. Amazonia [[spoiler: from an alternate timeline]] later reveals that this was mutual - she clung to the hopes that she'd get back together with Crusader, and she was intensely jealous to see him with a cute little blonde.



* StatingTheSimpleSolution: How Doctor Karma gets his female counterpart from another dimension to be present when [[spoiler: Abby goes into labor]]. They note the amount of work that they could do with teleportation and amnesia spells... but they found it easier for the male Doctor Karma to claim the female Doctor Karma is his cousin with a medical degree and just get the paperwork done to have her assist.
