YMMV: Ace Lightning
  • Canon Sue: Many fans felt that the writers were trying a little too hard to make them like Mark's replacement Girlfriend, Kat Adams.
  • He Really Can Act: Unidentified Flying Superhero was Mark's moment. Before that I don't think many fans were convinced that Tom Wansey knew what he was doing.
  • Narm Charm: Mostly because Ace is such a blatant parody of superhero stereotypes and yet so utterly believes in them. The human characters acting also bounces around this category a lot. Especially Mark. You really do either love or hate it.
  • Screwed by the Network: The show was cancelled after three seasons, leaving the viewers on something of a small cliff-hanger.
  • Squick: Oh boy...
    • Kilobyte's tentacles. Utilized for power drainage. This is usually a bit... graphic.
    • Lady Illusion and Lord Fear are a couple for most of the first series (and yes they behave that way), right? He's a sentient skeleton. Ew.
    • Pigface's, er... snot attack. Poor Heather gets a faceful of it, once.
  • Villain Decay: Lord Fear, after the overshadowing arrival of Kilobyte.
  • The Woobie: Mostly Ace, though Mark has his moments.
    • As does Chuck
      • And Random Virus. Seriously.
