This series provides examples of:
- Amulet of Concentrated Awesome: Kid Chimera's powers come from the amulet that's stuck within his body.
- Badass Normal: Archangel.
- Berserk Button: Do not mess with TAG One's girlfriend. He'll kill you without any remorse.
- Bewarethe Nice Ones: Raven is easily the nicest and shyest of the group. He can control the very air, creating tornadoes and hurricanes with his power.
- Big Bad: For the first arc Oude Rode Ogen. For the second, T seems to be acting as this.
- Bi the Way: Word of God states that Pulse is bisexual.
- Catch Phrase: SUCK ON MY JUSTICE! - Captain Justice
- Clothes Makethe Superman: TAG One and the rest of TAG all wear special armors and use advance technology.
- Cloud Cuckoolander: Captain Justice isn't very good at making sense, unless he feels like it. He usually doesn't feel like it.
- Darkis Not Evil: D is a black robe wearing, red eyed, wine drinking, sharp tooth, and frightening Devil-like character. He helps the heroes and gives them rewards for helping others.
- Did We Just Have Tea With Cthulu?: As stated above, D can be quite polite when he isn't being drop dead creepy.He also prefers wine.
- Eldritch Abomination: When D isn't a Humanoid Abomination, this is him. Showing his true face to Ogen ended up putting the villain into a comatose state! We've yet to see if T can pull off anything like this.
- Evil Counterpart: The Society of Superheroes to the Coalition of Criminals.
- Expy: Captain Justice and Deadpool. Both are Fourth Wall breaking guys with healing factors who never shut up. Major differences between the two are that Cap has a Thou Shall Not Kill rule, no weapons, and is not as good of a fighter as his more violent counterpart.
- TAG One and Ironman. Both are guys in suits who can fly.
- Static Shock, Black Lightning, and Black Vulcan are all similar to Railgun. They're all black and have lightning powers.
- If Batman was a mute and wore white ninja clothes, you'd get Archangel.
- Gunner is a lot like Wesley Gibbson from Wanted.
- Five-Bad Band: For the first arc, we have...
- Five-Man Band: For the Founders, though it isn't really five.
- Heroes Unlimited: After the first arc, the heroes decided to expand and recruit as many heroes as they could, forming the Society.
- Humanoid Abomination: Subverted. D seems to be a benevolent being who is just...really creepy. He's not evil, people just assume he is due to how he acts and looks. Having a black robe, blood red eyes, and razor sharp teeth can do that. Wordof God states he takes this form because he likes screwing with mortals.
- T is a better example, as he actually is evil. But again, this is subverted slightly as T usually appears as a benevolent, kind being.
- Lightis Not Good: T appears as a white robed, blue eyed, almost angelic figure. He wants to kill all heroes and practically worships death.
- Legion of Doom: The Coalition of Criminals, a large organization of you guessed it! Criminals.
- Sufficiently Advanced Alien: D compares himself to this. Whether he's lying or not is yet to be seen.
- Super Team: The Society of Superheroes, which has a smaller Super Team in it called TAG. There is also the supervillain counterpart, the Coalition of Criminals.
- Take That: The world of Ogen and Captain Justice is obviously inspired by Wanted and Gunner is inspired by Wesley Gibbson. Gunner gets his butt kicked by Captain.
- Talkative Loon: Captain JUSTICE, BABY! And he knows it!
- Thou Shall Not Kill: The Society, and most heroes, seem to have a no killing of sentient life rule.
- Too Kinky to Torture: When Captain Justice was captured, he asked if he was going to be raped and seemed pretty okay with it, whether it was by a man or woman. When the torture session was over, which was pretty much tearing him apart and keeping him in a bunch of jars to keep him from healing, he showed slight discomfort after putting himself back together. To be honest, he seemed more focus on the fact that he was naked than anything else.
