* WhatTheHellTownspeople: Twice in one going after Adam and a crew of space and earth heroes battled the murderous Lady Styx. Rann and the high council replaced him with a [[NiceCharacterMeanActor stuck up film himbo]] also from earth due to Adam spending more time with his family than protecting Rann.

* TookALevelInJerkass: Rannians after The Crisis have turned into [[AbsoluteXenophobe spiciest jagoff's]] who regularly mock and jeer whenever Adam has his back turned, even still when he's [[IHeardThat within earshot]]



* UngratefulTownsfolk: In the modern age, the Rannians are a lot less thankful for Adam's help and a lot more {{Jerkass}} on account of him being an alien ape. Strange is well aware of this fact but being the HumbleHero that he is, coupled with his wife living there; he does what he can to help them anyway.
* WarpWhistle: The Zeta Beamer module, a mobile teleportation drone developed by Sardeth which enables remote instantaneous transport across the universe without [[InconvenientSummons its effects wearing off]] like previous.
** WeaponizedTeleportation: Adam uses this to rather lethal effect while on the hunt for the missing Rann star system during '''Planet Heist'''. Once he used it to fight off a [[BalefulPolymorph durlan mercenary]] by warping him into a supernova.
