YMMV / Squadron Supreme

  • Evil Is Sexy: Foxfire and The Mink. Especially for Foxfire, who seduces Doctor Spectrum with a wink and a smile.
  • First Installment Wins: The 12-issues limited series was the first series with the Squadron Supreme as lead characters. But it was not the only one, "Death of a Universe" and "New World Order" were released years later, but not so acclaimed as the original. Possibly because both were one-off specials and didn't have the pages or the panels to equal the character development and twists of the maxi-series.
  • Fridge Horror: The modified villains are incapable of disobeying an order given to them by members of the Squadron. When Foxfire and Doctor Spectrum begin having a physical relationship, this would mean Foxfire cannot say no to Spectrum if they wanted to have sex but she didn't which would make Spectrum a rapist. Much like the case with Golden Archer and Lady Lark, this increases the horrific implications behind usage of the behavior modification machine.
  • Hilarious in Hindsight: When Master Menace, the Lex Luthor expy takes off his helmet, his resemblance to Alan Moore is uncanny. Given the book's themes run very similar to Watchmen, it's rather ironic.
  • Moral Event Horizon: Golden Archer brainwashing his girlfriend, which earns him a few well deserved What the Hell, Hero? remarks from his teammates though not as many as we'd hope.
    • The Squadron Sinister's Hyperion murders Power Princess's husband to win her affection, and tricks her into believing she's her world's version of Hyperion, entering into a relationship with her and committing rape-by-fraud.
  • Older Than They Think: Some of the themes of Watchmen such as the morality of Knight Templar measures to ensure world peace were played with by Squadron Supreme before Watchmen.
