Added DiffLines:

* RomanticPlotTumor: To an extent, the Mecha Maid plot becomes this...but only AFTER she and Spinerette get together! Generally, most of the issues post-Glass have focused on Spinerette's relationship with Mecha Maid, with most of the supervillain fights tied into this. Even the CrisisCrossover had this be a big deal.
* Strawman: Crosses over with StrawmanPolitical sometimes. But, the arcs after the Glass arc have generally focused on a one-shot villain with little to no redeeming factors.

** The American Government in general. Typically whenever they show up its for nefarious reasons within the comic, and almost none of the series' superheroes trust anyone who works for it. Even the Department of Homeland Security are portrayed as jack-booted thugs and civil liberty stompers. Chillingly, the most straightforward example comes from Dr. Universe, who, while happily pointing out the flaws he perceives in the US government, neglects the fact that he was illegally engaged in developing (possible weapons grade) technology for China which has an absolutely horrendous and very public track record in human rights abuses, worker abuse, deliberately selling sub-standard or dangerously defective products like toys with paint high in lead and poisoned baby formula, and even has a "one child" policy where government agents deliberately separate pregnant women from their families, take them to "clinics" where they have abortions performed upon them against their will, and the "terminated fetus" is then dumped on their lap while they lie on the recovery bed.

** There have been heated arguments in the Comment Section over whether Sarah Megan Nicole should or can be held criminally responsible for the actions she committed under the influence of the drugs she was taking.



* CrossesTheLineTwice: The whole of Issue 11. An aged Nazi sorcerer and his Aryan supersoldier protege hire Dr. Universe to clone Adolf Hitler, and gets into a fight with the voodoo-wielding great-great-granddaughter of Robert E. Lee (who wants Lee cloned) over who has rights to a pile of stem cells ''harvested from disposed-of foreskins'' to get their clone made first, both sides tossing out racist rhetoric against everyone not-white and then insulting each other, while Universe and Greta look on and snark about the idiocy of racists.
* DieForOurShip: Darien was given this treatment by Spinnerette[=/=]Mecha-Maid shippers before [[spoiler:Heather and Mecha Maid hooked up]].

** Evil Spinerette/Alexis kissed a girl that was taunting her and made up some fake story about how a Drider's kiss creates a magical bond of romance. One week later, the girl practically throws herself at Alexis. Alexis admitted to Heather that she was probably a closet lesbian her entire life and now has an excuse to come out. [[spoiler: It was all part of Evil Spinnerette's cunning plan to fool Heather into helping her with her latest drider-creation ritual]].

* NightmareFuel: ''Everything'' about [[KnightOfCerebus Colonel]] [[HeroKiller Glass]], from his half-mummified appearance, to his AxCrazy SlasherSmile, to his [[FlayingAlive horrifying MO]], to his very allegiance to the notorious North Korean military. Even before seeing him in action, the mere fact that his superpower is telekinetically controlling glass is enough to make you shudder. Now take a look around and look for anything glass in the room you are in and read this trope text again.

** Jennifer Troy. Combined with ParanoiaFuel for those in the medical profession. This woman goes to a doctor for a procedure she knows is experimental, with no guarantee of success, and despite the fact that it miraculously succeeds, immediately blames the doctor for a sudden downturn in her health and decides to wreck his entire lab, and its employees for revenge, not to mention outright killing him (or thinking she did) by dropping on his back over three stories, and slandering his good name by calling him a charlatan, despite having absolutely no contact with him, or any other medical professional to actually get her medical issue addressed.
* TheyChangedItNowItSucks: Some feel that [[spoiler: Minerva being turned human has done this to her, as well as made her less unique. Doubly so as she actually turns smaller (less than a head taller than Heather) and less strong and muscular in human form.]]

* ArcFatigue: Colonel Glass. Adding in breaks for Krow's convention appearances and a side-arc about Minerva's origins, it has taken ''over a year'' to finish the story arc.

** A lot of character and plot drama in general gets ruined by the gratuitous {{Fanservice}} and the heroes' sillyness. With names like "{{Mecha}} {{Maid}}" and "Super Milf", it's hard t take anything they say seriously.

* BrokenBase: Was Delta a sociopath or merely a pervy teenager who just needs to be set straight? Did his dreamhopping constitute MindRape or is that an exaggeration?
** The webcomic took a hell of a turn around issue 6 to 8, with a lot of drama and characters suddendly becoming super complex. Mecha Maid for example was a very simple character and out of nowehere [[spoiler: she's in love with Heather, has a disease that only gives her a few more years to live and seeks revenge against a villain that killed her parents]]. Depending on who you ask, this change is either the best or the worst thing that ever happened.

** Heather's first week as a hero wasn't quite the success she expected it to be, but hey! At least she got to be the DamselInDistress to [[http://www.spinnyverse.com/2010/06/14/06142010/ Mecha Maid]].
** Also see Mecha Maid's expression [[http://www.spinnyverse.com/index.php?id=71 in the first panel here]]
** [[http://www.spinnyverse.com/index.php?id=109 The sub-plot thickens]].
** This casts Tiger's reaction from [[http://www.spinnyverse.com/index.php?id=78 this strip]] in a totally different light. Even he seems to think there's something going on between Mecha Maid and Spinnerette. [[FridgeBrilliance check out MM's eyes in the 3rd panel]] of the same picture. [[MaleGaze She's openly checking out Heather's body.]] Not to mention the [[http://www.spinnyverse.com/index.php?id=106/ wall of MM / Spinnerette]] pictures Heather has, one of which has MM openly glomping her.
** In Heather's little news clipping shrine to her superheroing, more than half of the clippings and photos shown are of her and MM in close physical contact. [[http://www.spinnyverse.com/index.php?id=110 Sahira even uses one of them]] (of MM openly checking out Heather's ass) to help drive home the suggestion that Mecha Maid is a lesbian. This is HypocriticalHumor as well, since Sahira really seems to like touching Heather. Including in that very comic.
** [[http://www.spinnyverse.com/comic/01-03-2011 Sahira has outright stated she thinks that]] Mecha Maid wants to be more than just friends with Heather. Confirmed at the end of Chapter 6 -- Mecha Maid admits she finds Heather attractive, but denies having any romantic attraction to her. Her thought bubble at the end says otherwise. Heather is too clueless to realize the subtext.
** Katt O'Nine Tails can [[http://www.spinnyverse.com/comic/05-06-2011 add this]] to her repertoire. There's also Mecha Maid's reaction when she walks in on the following tail-massage. She can mistake it for a) Katt attacking Spinnerette, b) the two of them getting it on and so being jealous, or c) both. In any case on a second readthrough (or just to anyone with [[YuriGenre Yuri]] goggles enabled) it can be interpreted very much as a "lay off my crush!" reaction.
