YMMV: Marvel 1602
  • Genius Bonus: Reed discusses how he's arranged the sciences around Knights of the Round Table, such as Lamorack and Bors.
    • And of course, Lamorack was designated to be the name for biological sciences and Galvan for physics. Phenomena that he couldn't classify were even designated as "Merlinic", after Merlinus.
  • Moral Event Horizon: Osbourne gives smallpox blankets to the local Native Americans, whom the colony has already made peace with, then shoots and kills Virginia Dare when she goes to tell her father what he'd done.
  • Nightmare Fuel:
    • Stephen Strange's head, when shown to Richard Reed and the others by Strange's wife. That thing has been preserved in whiskey, and in the panel in which it appears it is wet, its eyes are completely blank and its mouth is open wide, as if it's screaming. Bonus points for it being the first panel of a left page: it's exactly as freaky as it sounds, and it's bound to catch you off-guard the first time you read 1602.
    • Strange's wife states that one of the sailors snuck a sip from the whiskey during the voyage. "He went mad, of course."
    • The cover of part 7.
  • Seasonal Rot: While not bad, they don't really match up to the first miniseries.
  • Some Anvils Need to Be Dropped: See the main page with "Before My Time".
  • Tear Jerker:
    • Jean's death, notable for being one of the only continuities where she just might stay dead.
    • Virginia Dare's death at the end.
