* KnightInSourArmor: Having been raised by a couple of migrant, he has seen the ugliness of the world and his views on it are pretty cynical. He ''still'' became a superhero and worked his best to make it a better place.

* AlasPoorVillain: He's just so miserable before his death, it is hard not to feel a little bad for him. Especially since he acknowledges how far he's fallen and asks for Kirk's forgiveness.



* HiveMind: His plan to eliminate free will involves detonating a Nanite Bomb, which will use Boom Tubes to teleport nanites into everyone on earth, and forcefully link their minds together.



* NotSoDifferent: Will's ultimate plan of turning all of humanity into a HiveMind echos the outcome Superman describes when considering taking over the world at the start of the film: everyone in the world connected to a single, productive purpose, and brought together as one. In fact, it's Magnus' monstrous plan that partially motivates Superman to reconsider his methods and [[TookALevelInKindness become more traditionally heroic]].

** Their look and them being superpowered {{Killer Robot}}s are very similar to Comicbook/{{OMAC}} [[ComicBook/InfiniteCrisis drones]], to the point you'd be forgiven for assuming they were supposed to be ''them''.

Added DiffLines:

* AmbiguousDisorder: It's implied even before he became Batman that his stoicism, lack of social skills, and laser focus on his topic of interests were already there, which suggests this trope is in action.

* OurVampiresAreDifferent: In his case, he is science-based vampire, created from combining a artificially created virus based on vampire bat DNA with Magnus' nanotechnology. This gave him distinctive vampiric features such as [[RedEyesTakeWarning red eyes]], pale skin, fangs and a cold body, as well as [[LightningBruiser superhuman strength, speed and durability]], at the cost of a BloodLust he has to satisfy in order to survive. He however [[DaywalkingVampire doesn't appear to be affected by sunlight]], and can be seen in mirrors.

Added DiffLines:

* RelatedInTheAdaptation: The Bekka of the comics is the daughter of Himon, a scientist on Apokolips. Here, she’s the granddaughter of Highfather.

Added DiffLines:

* AmbiguousSituation: At the start of the film, he’s seen with a cane. By the present day, he gets around in his CoolChair and it’s clear his muscles have atrophied extensively. It’s unclear if his immobility is some kind of motor disease or just from being out in space for too long.

* UnreliableNarrator: In the prequel comic, she is the narrator and she has a very obvious bias against Superman, seems to love Wonder Woman, though, at worst saying Bekka was being duped by Hernan.

to:

* TheReasonYouSuckSpeech: She indirectly gives one to the Justice League through one of her news broadcasts in the tie-in comic. After they defeat the Forever People, she reports on the collateral damage their battle did in Mumbay (of which her father was one of the many casualties) and says her father was a true hero, because he would have found another way to keep all those people from dying, which the Justice League wouldn't lift a finger to do.

* PsychopathicManChild: He'll do whatever he wants and if you have a problem with that, too bad. These issues seem to stem from the prequel comic, where it is revealed that his parents disapproved of him using his powers for anything, even for good, except for one incident where they begged him to save a falling plane, where he called them hypocritical for it and refused to do anything to spite them.



* TeensAreMonsters: As a teen, he let a plane crash despite his parents begging him to do something, spitefully saying that it goes against what they've been telling him -- don't use your powers and don't be a hero. He even maliciously smiles while watching the plane go up in flames.

!Comic-Only Characters

[[folder:The Guerra family]]
----
* AdultFear: They're a family of undocumented Mexican immigrants working as farmers, and then they take in an alien baby they found in a starship which the government is looking for.
* ArmorPiercingSlap: Rosa gives one with a BigShutUp to Hernan when he angrily tells her that [[GodIsDead God is a phony]]. [[BewareTheNiceOnes It shocks him]], since she had never been that angry with him before.
* BerserkButton: Rosa is a devout Christian and she takes offense when you speak ill of God or anything/anyone holy.
* BewareTheNiceOnes: Rosa is a NiceGirl, but [[BerserkButton don't tell her that God isn't real.]]
* BigShutUp: Rosa gives one to Hernan along with an ArmorPiercingSlap
* BigLittleBrother: Valentina is older than Hernan by a couple of years, but due to his powers, she considers him her older brother.
* DeliberateValuesDissonance: Hitting your children. Once, Manuel almost hit Hernan when he yelled at him for using his powers (though Valentina wonders if it was just because he knew that he would've hurt himself from Hernan's NighInvulnerability), and Rosa slaps Hernan and tells him to shut up when he says God is horrible (and this was minutes after a confrontation with a racist mob). Nowadays, in any other circumstance in the West, this would be heavily frowned upon and might even be grounds for some folks to call in Child Protective Services, but anyone from a non-white family might be able to relate to getting an ArmorPiercingSlap when one of their parents is ''very'' upset with them, which hopefully isn't often.
* DoubleStandardAbuseFemaleOnMale: Hernan's father considers hitting Hernan, but goes back on it. Hernan's mother hits him later. Though there's also some DeliberateValuesDissonance in this, since they're otherwise not abusive and perhaps a bit justifiable given the circumstances.
* EvenBadMenLoveTheirMamas: After rescuing a group of girls (one of which had reminded him of Valentina) from a cartel, he is reminded of his mother's devout commitment to Virgin Mary when the girls reveal that they prayed to her for someone to save them. This convinces Hernan to return home to see his family. Sadly, [[NeverGotToSayGoodbye Rosa passed away while he was gone]], but he at least makes amends with his father and sister.
* {{Foil}}: To the Kents.
* GoodParents: Deconstructed. They try their best to raise Hernan right, but other issues like everything involving being undocumented Mexican immigrant farmers in the South and Hernan being descended from an evil maniac get in the way of that. But ultimately, it's clear that they love Hernan as if he were their own flesh and blood.
* IWishedYouWereDead: After Hernan unleashes his wrath on a mob of racists harassing them, a stressed out Manuel angrily tells Hernan that it was a mistake to adopt him. He comes to regret it and apologizes to Hernan when he returns.
* MoralityPet: They're this to Hernan. Particularly Valentina. When she becomes paralyzed from the waist down while playing with him when he was using his powers, it causes him to stop using his powers.
* NeverGotToSayGoodbye: Rosa died from cancer years after Hernan left.
* NiceGirl: Rosa and Valentina.
* ParentsAsPeople:
** Out of fear of what the wrong people might do if they knew the truth about Hernan, they tell him not to use his powers and even yell at him when he uses them for good, like protecting the other farmers. When a plane comes tumbling out of the sky in Hernan's teenage years, they beg Hernan to do something. [[TeensAreMonsters A moody Hernan refuses]], calling them {{hypocrite}}s for wanting him to be a hero ''now'' (and this was after he accidentally crippled Valentina).
** In one scene, Manuel angrily raises his hand to hit Hernan after yelling at him about his powers, but apologizes and tearfully hugs him. Later, Rosa hits him and tells him to shut up when he speaks blasphemy after unleashing his powers on a racist mob.

* NeverMyFault: At the house meeting, they get into an argument about who's at fault and who to blame for what's happening to them. Justified, because they're stressed out about being on a hitlist and are discussing how they're going to protect themselves from the assassins.
