YMMV: Lightbringer
  • Alternate Character Interpretation: The titular Lightbringer has been subject to many alternate interpretations by other writers (such as those of The Crossoverlord and Mark Banilbo's rewrite) or critics. One of the most popular interpretations is being well-intentioned but dense in Crossoverlord.
    • Some see him as the Devil, thanks to his unfortunate powers and name.
  • Ensemble Darkhorse: Hannah Ments after Issue 8. Her alter ego of Osprey has certainly helped.
  • Family-Unfriendly Aesop: Subverted. While Linkara states that he thinks utter pacifism allows evil to go unchecked, Lightbringer's speech seems more about apathy then the political philosophy, and it's clear that he holds himself back despite his obvious disgust for criminals. Still, it's scary how easily Lightbringer could become a Knight Templar if he didn't have his morals.
  • Growing the Beard: Most agree that the series leap-frogged in quality around issue 7, which gave Hannah more development and had her call out Carter.
  • Love It or Hate It: The comic clearly has its fans, but just as much haters.
  • Narm: Serious moments in the Linkara-drawn issues get weighted down by the art often.
  • Take That, Scrappy!: Hannah repeatedly calling out Lightbringer in the later issues marked her upgrade into Ensemble Darkhorse status, even by some critics. It may have come too late for most, however.
  • The Scrappy: Many of the comic's critics hate Lightbringer for his Marty Stu tendencies early on and representing some of Linkara's...questionable views. However, this doesn't seem to be the case in Crossoverlord or other rewrites of the character.
  • So Bad, It's Good: The early illustrations make it this in the eyes of many.
