* AcceptableTargets: The only thing worse than communists and supervillains in Silver Age Spinny's mind is... hippies.
* AlternateCharacterInterpretation:
** Dr. Universe: evil MadScientist, or victim of the government?
** Col. Glass: textbook clinical psychopath? Or victim of the North Korean government, driven insane by experimentation to the point of being pathologically addicted to killing? His sole PetTheDog moment has left his character surprisingly hard to figure out.
* ArcFatigue: Colonel Glass. Adding in breaks for Krow's convention appearances and a side-arc about Minerva's origins, it has taken ''over a year'' to finish the story arc.
* BrokenBase: Was Delta a sociopath or merely a pervy teenager who just needs to be set straight? Did his dreamhopping constitute MindRape or is that an exaggeration?
* TheChrisCarterEffect: An inevitable consequence of it being written like a comic book is that, like most comic books, it has no signs of an ending or satisfying conclusion down the line.
* CrossesTheLineTwice: The whole of Issue 11. An aged Nazi sorcerer and his Aryan supersoldier protege hire Dr. Universe to clone Adolf Hitler, and gets into a fight with the voodoo-wielding great-great-granddaughter of Robert E. Lee (who wants Lee cloned) over who has rights to a pile of stem cells ''harvested from disposed-of foreskins'' to get their clone made first, both sides tossing out racist rhetoric against everyone not-white and then insulting each other, while Universe and Greta look on and snark about the idiocy of racists.
* DieForOurShip: Darien was given this treatment by Spinnerette[=/=]Mecha-Maid shippers before [[spoiler:Heather and Mecha Maid hooked up]].
* DracoInLeatherPants: Dr. Universe and Greta Gravity are quickly becoming this to the fanbase. Their DarkAndTroubledPast seems to justify nearly everything they do in the eyes of some fans.
* DumbassHasAPoint: In issue twenty Heather calls a group of protesters dummies for believing that the university's new anti-proton collider could create a black hole. This would probably be more reassuring coming from someone hadn't received spider super-powers in a freak lab accident and who doesn't live in a world that runs on comic book physics.
* FoeYay: The [[http://www.spinnyverse.com/index.php?id=189 issue 7 cover]] teases it. See also CleanPrettyReliable.
* HilariousInHindsight: Greta Gravity is German-Brazilian. In a 2012 comic, she mentions looking forward to the 2014 [[TheWorldCup World Cup]]. Come the [[CurbStompBattle real life World Cup...]]
* IronWoobie: Marilyn Seong aka Mecha Maid. She's bound to a wheelchair when outside her armor and has only a few years left to live, but spends her time trying to make the world a better place for everyone else.
* LesYay:
** Heather's first week as a hero wasn't quite the success she expected it to be, but hey! At least she got to be the DamselInDistress to [[http://www.spinnyverse.com/2010/06/14/06142010/ Mecha Maid]].
** Also see Mecha Maid's expression [[http://www.spinnyverse.com/index.php?id=71 in the first panel here]]
** [[http://www.spinnyverse.com/index.php?id=109 The sub-plot thickens]].
** This casts Tiger's reaction from [[http://www.spinnyverse.com/index.php?id=78 this strip]] in a totally different light. Even he seems to think there's something going on between Mecha Maid and Spinnerette. [[FridgeBrilliance check out MM's eyes in the 3rd panel]] of the same picture. [[MaleGaze She's openly checking out Heather's body.]] Not to mention the [[http://www.spinnyverse.com/index.php?id=106/ wall of MM / Spinnerette]] pictures Heather has, one of which has MM openly glomping her.
** In Heather's little news clipping shrine to her superheroing, more than half of the clippings and photos shown are of her and MM in close physical contact. [[http://www.spinnyverse.com/index.php?id=110 Sahira even uses one of them]] (of MM openly checking out Heather's ass) to help drive home the suggestion that Mecha Maid is a lesbian. This is HypocriticalHumor as well, since Sahira really seems to like touching Heather. Including in that very comic.
** [[http://www.spinnyverse.com/2011/01/03/01032011/ Sahira has outright stated she thinks that]] Mecha Maid wants to be more than just friends with Heather. Confirmed at the end of Chapter 6 -- Mecha Maid admits she finds Heather attractive, but denies having any romantic attraction to her. Her thought bubble at the end says otherwise. Heather is too clueless to realize the subtext.
** It's just fanart... but [[http://www.spinnyverse.com/wp-content/gallery/guest-art/dyn_spin.jpg here you go.]](slightly NSFW)
** Katt O'Nine Tails can [[http://www.spinnyverse.com/2011/05/04/05042011/ add this]] to her repertoire. There's also Mecha Maid's reaction when she walks in on the following tail-massage. She can mistake it for a) Katt attacking Spinnerette, b) the two of them getting it on and so being jealous, or c) both. In any case on a second readthrough (or just to anyone with [[YuriGenre Yuri]] goggles enabled) it can be interpreted very much as a "lay off my crush!" reaction.
** Spinnerette holding [[spoiler:[[http://www.spinnyverse.com/index.php?id=249 an underwear-clad Marilyn]]]]
** Evil Spinerette/Alexis kissed a girl that was taunting her and made up some fake story about how a Drider's kiss creates a magical bond of romance. One week later, the girl practically throws herself at Alexis. Alexis admitted to Heather that she was probably a closet lesbian her entire life and now has an excuse to come out. [[spoiler: It was all part of Evil Spinnerette's cunning plan to fool Heather into helping her with her latest drider-creation ritual]].
** [[spoiler:Alexis and Heather: See CleanPrettyReliable]]
* MemeticMutation: When Katt throws a car at Dr Universe, take a look at the car's license plate.
** [[http://spinnyverse.com/2011/06/06/06062011/ The strip in question]]. [[spoiler:YS-SRUS=[[Film/TheDarkKnight Why so serious?]]]]
* {{Narm}}:
** The strip that shows why Tiger decided to pursue superheroing is either really sad or too melodramatic. Hey, "Vary" is the key word here.
** After [[spoiler:Mecha Maid gets electrocuted and can't breathe, she tells Heather to take her to the "superhero hospital".]] It's a serious moment, but the way it was worded just made it seem silly.
** When Marilyn lets out her [[spoiler:AnguishedDeclarationOfLove for Heather]], it's meant to be a huge DramaBomb...but the sight of Heather's nipples poking through her suit can kind of deflate it.
* NightmareFuel: ''Everything'' about [[KnightOfCerebus Colonel]] [[HeroKiller Glass]], from his half-mummified appearance, to his AxCrazy SlasherSmile, to his [[FlayingAlive horrifying MO]], to his very allegiance to the notorious North Korean military. Even before seeing him in action, the mere fact that his superpower is telekinetically controlling glass is enough to make you shudder. Now take a look around and look for anything glass in the room you are in and read this trope text again.
** ''Beautifully'' karmic though it is, [[spoiler:Glass' RasputinianDeath is as horrifying as everything else about the man. To wit, he's lit on fire with white phosphorous, then torn to shreds by an uncontrollable hail of glass, then blown to pieces with a shotgun, then ''finally'' burned to death once and for all with a thermite charge.]]
* ParodySue: Delta, who combines as many harem anime as inhumanly possible [[spoiler:along with dream manipulating powers]].
* TheyChangedItNowItSucks: Some feel that [[spoiler: Minerva being turned human has done this to her, as well as made her less unique. Doubly so as she actually turns smaller (less than a head taller than Heather) and less strong and muscular in human form.]]
* ViewerGenderConfusion: Green Gable and Katt o' Nine Tails, WholesomeCrossdresser and {{Bifauxnen}}, respectively.
* VillainSue: Evil Spinnerette had shades of this in Chapter 7. She not only figured out Heather's secret identity, but she also fooled Spinnerette into helping her and then effortlessly trounced her in battle. The whole chapter almost reads like a fanfic by someone zealously devoted to the character. ([[http://badwebcomicswiki.shoutwiki.com/wiki/Spinnerette one reviewer even points this out]] as when the comic JumpedTheShark)
** Colonel Glass had a feeling of this, being apparently invincible and taking out all enemies with ease (and with proper application of telekinetically-propelled glass shards). [[spoiler: Even his RasputinianDeath is capped by the man who shot him to pieces saying that Glass can regenerate from ''that'']].
* WheelchairWoobie: Mecha Maid, outside her armor.
