[[http://minoractsofheroism.smackjeeves.com/ Minor Acts of Heroism]] is a webcomic written and illustrated by Adriana Ferguson and Kristen Van Dam since May of 2010.

The first chapter focuses on the introduction of the two main characters: Simon, the foul-mouthed stepson of Dr. Bradley Thorne, and Sergio, the ward of Julius Catargiu, the "old fashioned" friend of the aforementioned doctor. The two boys find some common ground when Simon sees Sergio's room and finds out that he's a fan of Everywhere Kid, a superhero with the power of teleportation. As the boys explore Julius's mansion, they discover an underground water passageway that leads to an enormous door that, when opened, unleashes a monster that threatens to drown Sergio. This leaves Simon, Bradley and Julius no choice but to [[spoiler:reveal their superhero identities: Everywhere Kid, Everywhere, and The Gentleman.]]

The comic is ongoing, updated often (but with no set schedule), and in full color.

This webcomic provides examples of:
* AChildShallLeadThem: [[spoiler:Nilus]] is the king of Atlantis. Also an example of [[spoiler:SheIsTheKing]]
* {{Adorkable}}: How can you NOT love [[ShrinkingViolet Sergio]]?
* AllThereInTheManual: Any powers in Sergio have not been addressed or apparent as of yet, but there is merchandise already for sale of him in a superhero costume reminiscent of The Gentleman's. One of the artists called him The Young Gentleman when she posted [[http://s3.amazonaws.com/data.tumblr.com/tumblr_laxxpb30K01qaek8bo1_1280.jpg?AWSAccessKeyId=0RYTHV9YYQ4W5Q3HQMG2&Expires=1294612212&Signature=5SOQFOUQVviIoqEvZeyZu9yQzog%3D a picture of him in this costume that was later to become the banner for the website]] on her tumblr. Sketches of other, yet-to-be-introduced characters are also posted on the creators' tumblrs.
* AmbiguouslyBrown: Nilius, Samekh and [[spoiler:Lord Aedh]].
* {{Atlantis}}: The reigning king of Atlantis makes an appearance in the first chapter [[spoiler:and nearly drowns Sergio when trying to "play" with him and Simon. Did I mention the king is a little girl?]]
* AttentionDeficitOohShiny:
-->'''Simon''': So, what? Your parents just ship you off to Weird-Mcfancy-Man-Alcoholic outta the blue? Or is this punishment or something? This feels sort of like punishment. Your shirt's buttoned so high.
** MotorMouth
* {{Badass}}: Everywhere and The Gentleman.
* BadassAdorable: Everywhere Kid and Nilus.
* BadassBoast: Nilus has an impressive one [[http://www.minoractsofheroism.com/comics/1106706/m-a-o-h-ch-2-page-25/ here]].
* BigBadWannabe: Jet really doesn't know his place.
* BigEater: Everywhere Kid, to sustain constant teleportation.
* CaptainObvious:
-->'''Simon''': Okay. So, kicking water does nothing.
* BondCreatures[=/=]{{Familiar}}: The puppy to Sergio.
* BrownEyes: The Everywheres.
* CasualDangerDialog: Everywhere and The Gentleman discussing education whilst [[ConservationOfNinjutsu beating up mooks.]]
* ChestInsignia: The Everywheres' uniforms, and [[TheMerch in-universe merchandise]] you see Simon wearing: Everywheres-print boxers ([[WordOfGod "He got them at Target~"]]).
* ClassicalMovieVampire: Julius and his home appear this way. Lampshaded on several occasions by Simon, [[spoiler:even before he finds out that Julius really is a vampire.]]
* ClusterFBomb[=/=]SymbolSwearing: Simon does this a lot.
* CulturedBadass: The Gentleman.
* DarkSkinnedBlond: Nilus and Samekh are this, though Nilus has brown hair in human form.
* DeadpanSnarker: Simon is this often, and Sergio has his moments.
-->'''Sergio''': (in the terrifying pool) It probably goes right to a pile of dead nephews.
* DidIJustSayThatOutLoud: Sergio tends to think out loud, often forgetting the person he's thinking about can hear him perfectly fine.
* DidWeJustHaveTeaWithCthulhu: [[http://www.minoractsofheroism.com/comics/1055790/m-a-o-h-ch-2-page-7/ Yes, Simon, yes, you did.]] Now kindly stop pointing at [[spoiler:her]].
* [[spoiler:DidYouJustRomanceCthulhu: Sergio's grandma, though technically Eurynomos did the romancing.]]
* DirtyCoward: The second someone manages to catch him off guard, Jet starts going to pieces.
* TheDreaded: [[spoiler:Quinton]].
-->'''Simon:'''"He's a really bad guy. Like a ''''' [[RunOrDie 'KILLS EVERYONE WHEN HE SHOWS UP']] ''''' guy.
* DynamicEntry: [[http://www.minoractsofheroism.com/comics/912960/m-a-o-h-page-16/ Hi, Samekh.]]
* EmotionlessBoy: Quinton, who also seems to have the [[spoiler:TouchOfDeath.]]
* EvilAlbino: Quinton, though so far, he hasn't done anything openly antagonistic.
** [[http://www.minoractsofheroism.com/comics/1408559/m-a-o-h-ch-4-page-10/ Never mind,]] yes, he has.
* ExpressiveMask: This trope is [[AvertedTrope averted]] with The Gentleman in that his eyebrows are visible above his mask, doing all the expressing necessary. The Everywheres' masks cover most of their faces (including their eyes), but the indentation of their eyebrows are visible. The eyeholes on their costumes thus remain reasonably static.
* [[spoiler:FluffyTheTerrible: Eurynomos, the Devourer, Lord of Flies, Father of the Dead and creator of vampires, and apparently Grandsire to Sergio, who appropriately calls him "Grandpa."]]
* FragileSpeedster: Successfully grab Jet and he's a goner.
* FriendlyNeighborhoodVampire: [[spoiler:Julius.]]
* FrozenFashionSense: Julius, [[spoiler:considering he's a vampire that's a hundred some-odd years old.]]
* GilliganCut:
-->'''Bradley''': If anyone can make him [[ShrinkingViolet [Sergio] ]]less shy by example, it's Simon. I just hope he's not being rude...
-->'''Simon''': *to Sergio* So, what's up with the Dracula house and the mortuary clothes? Is this for me 'cause, like, Bradley didn't say nothing about dressing up. I don't high tea or whatever you people do in horror movie mansions.
* {{Goth}}: Jet.
* {{Guyliner}}: Why is Jet wearing makeup?
* [[spoiler:HellHound: The most adorable hellhound [[PreciousPuppy EVER!]]]]
* HotBlooded: Simon.
* ImStandingRightHere: Simon and Nilus can hear you, [[DidIJustSayThatOutLoud Sergio.]]
* InsistentTerminology: A mild example in Simon pointing out that Bradley is his stepfather, not biological father. [[spoiler:This doesn't explain why they look blood-related and both have powers of teleportation.]]
** [[spoiler:Nilus insists upon being referred to as [[SheIsTheKing King, not Queen.]]]]
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Simon doesn't have a filter on his mouth but he means well.
* {{Keet}}: Simon is this, but a little less colorful and a little more crass.
* KidAnova: Simon, who seems to flirt with both Sergio and Nilus.
* LampshadeHanging: Nilus turns out to have magic that lets her disguise herself as a normal human, albeit one with purple eyes. Simon's response: "Wow. that's extremely convenient."
* LittleMissBadass: Don't mess with Nilus, okay?
* LuminescentBlush: Pick any page of Sergio interacting with either Nilus or Simon. But mostly [[ShipTease the latter.]]
* MagmaMan: The Magnatist, [[TheWorfEffect for all the good it does him.]]
* MakingASplash: [[spoiler:Nilus]] can control water. She is shown pulling it around herself to create a sort of water monster. [[spoiler:Atlantus]] can also do this, so presumably it's an Atlantean thing.
* ManInWhite: The Everywheres and Quinton.
* MonochromaticEyes: Happens when the characters put on masks (ex. the Everywheres and The Gentleman). Justified in the case of the Everywheres, since it seems that their masks actually do cover their eyes. Nilus's eyes are monochromatic black, with a purple sheen to them. Strangely enough, the only other Atlantean introduced in the story doesn't have MonochromaticEyes, so it can be gathered that Nilus's eyes are unusual, even among Atlanteans.
* MrExposition: Sergio in chapter 6 with Julius as the AudienceSurrogate.
* MundaneUtility: Everywhere using his teleportation powers to to retrieve the handcuffs he forgot at his house.
* {{Ninja}}: Jet, it seems.
* NotDistractedByTheSexy: Bradley doesn't seem to even notice the increasingly forward invitations of a hot science chick who visits his office.
* NotSoDifferent: When Simon starts pointing out how weird it is that [[spoiler:Julius is a vampire, Bradley points out that he and Simon can teleport.]]
* NotWhatItLooksLike: Julius and Bradley in [[http://minoractsofheroism.smackjeeves.com/comics/880223/m-a-o-h-page-5/ this page.]] It took this YaoiFangirl Troper quite a few pages even after [[spoiler:it's revealed that they were only suiting up for a night of crime-fighting]] to realize that they weren't lovers.
* [[spoiler:OurDemonsAreDifferent: Eurynomos, Baskerville the hell-puppy and apparently Sergio.]]
* [[spoiler:OurVampiresAreDifferent: Julius, Lord Aedh and possibly Sergio.]]
* PerkyGoth: Julius and Sergio.
* PowerFist: The Magnatist.
* PreciousPuppy: The cutest puppy ever! [[spoiler:Even if [[HellHound it is from Hell]].]]
** RidiculouslyCuteCritter
* TheQuietOne: Quinton and Samekh.
* RedEyesTakeWarning: Quinton.
* RedOniBlueOni: Simon and Sergio, respectively. From what we've seen of them, Bradley and Julius (also respectively) may also qualify.
** Jet and Quinton.
* RunOrDie: [[spoiler:No one wants to fight Quinton.]] Simon has to explain this to Nilus.
* ScarfOfAsskicking: Jet. Unfortunately, he's a BigBadWannabe.
* SheIsTheKing: [[spoiler: Nilus]] is very insistent about being referred to as "king."
* ShrinkingViolet: Sergio.
* SingleMindedTwins: The twins that Quinton calls "Binary".
* SleepCute: Done with Nilus, Simon and Sergio [[http://www.minoractsofheroism.com/comics/1095556/m-a-o-h-ch-2-page-22/ here.]]
* SuperStrength: Nilus seems to have this, as she crumples a dumpster when she gets grumpy with Simon.
* SuspiciouslySpecificDenial: Sergio, in chapter three.
* [[spoiler:TangledFamilyTree: Julius sold his family's bloodline to Eurynomos, demon and creator of vampires, in exchange for saving his son's life. Julius' descendants now have WingDingEyes but that's mostly it. Eventually, Sergio's dad is born. On the other side of the tree, Eurynomos romanced a mortal for some reason and while the offspring wasn't demonic herself, she carried the gene. This was Sergio's mom. So to sum up, Sergio has a demon-grandpa, a vampire-grandpa, 2 half-human dead parents and a puppy familiar named Baskerville because why not, which makes Sergio… weird.]]
* TeleportSpam: Simon has been seen using his teleportation powers to move a few feet, [[ShipTease embarrass Sergio,]] and even just to move from a laying-down position to a standing-up position.
** Jet as well.
* ThreeAmigos: Simon, Sergio, and Nilus.
* {{Tsundere}}: Nilus is revealed as [[http://www.minoractsofheroism.com/comics/1755325/m-a-o-h-ch-5-page-17/ a Type A.]]
* TheUnintelligible: General Samekh Atlantus, Atlantis's military attaché accompanying Nilus. So far, none of his few lines have been in English (or any other language recognizable by any characters other than Nilus and Julius).
* UnsoundEffect: [[http://minoractsofheroism.smackjeeves.com/comics/938661/m-a-o-h-page-26/ This]] page has one, when Sergio realizes a few pages after the fact that [[spoiler:Simon and Bradley are the Everywheres]]
-->UnsoundEffect: SLOW
* WhatBeautifulEyes: Sergio has quite attractive eyes (with hearts shaped pupils), as much of the fanbase likes to comment. Julius has similar eyes as well, but not many people seem to notice.
** WingdingEyes: Lord Aedh has them too.
** OccultBlueEyes:[[spoiler: The hearts are iconic of Eurynomos.]]
