A Nicktoons cartoon about three superheroes with the radical names of Z-Strap, KewlBreeze, and Elastica, and who are based on Sketchers sneakers. While many think it was a 30-minute sneaker commercial, not only were shoes almost never mentioned, as it went on, it became a dark story, hinting at a vast conspiracy at work. Unfortunately, the show was cancelled before this could be fully explored.
Big Bad Ensemble: Stankfoot and Ronson, with both opposing each other while Zevo-3 is caught in the middle.
Brother-Sister Team: Matt and Ellie. Oddly, they often refer to each other by their superhero handles when in costume. Hell, Ellie calls him by name (middle included) while in costume in the middle of hostile territory.
The gymnast boy who was such a sleaze. Just think about it...
At least twice in "Mutant Hotel"; during the latter fight, one of the Brutes' hands is in an unfortunate spot on Ellie's chest (these guys were coughing earlier when the first building was destroyed, so it's presumed they're at least partially organic); minutes later George Mengleson claims to be more lover and fighter, with his wife interjecting that even if he's only half that....
On the violence side, in several episodes you see buildings getting ripped up, punctured, torn down, exploded, and melted. While no death toll is explicitly stated, there's no way they were all vacated in time...Plus people with weak immune systems (if it was really a virus) probably died during the virus episode.
Blood in the Molocon episodes, plus Ellie's Hispanic friend.
Just before Jason cuts his finger on the Molocon action figure, he mimics a handsign from the story it's from; this handsign just happens to look like this.
Nice Job Breaking It, Hero: Matt is the reason that he and the others are superheroes: a crazed super villain with a penchant for super soldiers is on the loose, the mayor is trying to wipe said superheroes off the face of the Earth, and products of that scientist's mad dreams have destroyed a number of buildings and probably killed a lot of people. All because some boy genius fell for some Schmuck Bait.
Le Parkour: Z-Strap was able to do this on a skateboard before he even got his powers. He now doesn't need a board; particularly prevalent in "Sacrifice". Although they call it free running.
Phlebotinum: The Zevo Compound, source of all mutations in the show.
Product Placement: In spades, most notably in the main characters' superhero identities. Perhaps in a moment of Laser-Guided Karma, the FCC is now investigating the show, as it apparently violates the guidelines on distinctions between children's advertising and children's programming.
Psycho Rangers: Ronson "sinks" to hiring a team of Zevo mutants in "Career Week", one of which turns out to be Jason's crush, and another of which looks very much like the Skechers Luminators mascot-character.
