Anna Mercury: Mad and beautiful, same way it always does.
- Applied Phlebotinum: Almost all the extraordinary things Anna can do are because of her "induction field," which can manipulate gravity in New Ataraxia. Also, the technology that allows Anna to go from London to New Ataraxia (which gives her, at best, 16 hours before returning).

- Masquerade: The nine imaginary worlds are known to each respective agency in the G-8 governments, but not to heads of state. "Launchpad" says he's had to explain the program to four Prime Ministers so far and each have had, well, unusual reactions. The most recent one seems to take it alright, though.
- Meaningful Name: Ataraxia is a Greek word for a kind of blissful state, while Sheol is Hebrew for Hell. And Mercury is, of course, a Roman trickster god (even though that's her Code Name, not real name).
- Mission Briefing
- Mistaken for Spies: Interesting in that Anna is a spy, but for the UK, not for Sheol.
- Nuke 'em: One of the options "Launchpad" tells the PM is just shoving a nuclear warhead into New Ataraxia.
- Outrun the Fireball: An interesting variation, Anna is boomeranged from New Ataraxia right before the fireball would hit her.
- Redheaded Hero
- The Reveal: At the end of the first issue, it's shown Anna is an agent of the British government and New Ataraxia is an "imaginary" world, one of nine that orbit Earth.
