* CoversAlwaysLie: The cover shows Zemo wearing his classic pink hood... but, as his face had been restored in previous arcs, he does not wear the hood during most of the story. As StatusQuoIsGod, he would end this series with his face burned and wearing the hood once again.



* EvilPlan: In what became a consistent MO for Zemo, he tries to "save" the world with approximately the most supervillainous style possible. He may have changed his motives, but his methods have not changed.
* HeelFaceRevolvingDoor: Averted. Zemo had a HeelFaceTurn, became a full superhero (and not merely posing as a superhero, as in the early Thunderbolts issues), and organized a great plan to save the world from the weapons of mass destruction. Everybody was so damn sure that, when the moment was due, Zemo would reveal himself as EvilAllAlong and reveal that his plan to save the world was actually and EvilPlan to TakeOverTheWorld. But no. Zemo was doing good things for real, and never changed his mind.

* BerserkButton: Atlas is a good friend and can't bring himself to attack his teammates... but when Moonstone attacks Vantage (a FlyingBrick against a mere acrobat, that ends just as expected), then that's it: let's grow more than 30 meters, and crush Moonstone like an ant!

* ComicallyMissingThePoint: The Thunderbols, led by Zemo, forced a BananaRepublic to give up their secret atomic plans. The PresidentEvil sent his navy, to no avail. He kept nagging, that he would gather allies, go to the UN... and Zemo interrupted him showing him and his cabinet a porn video of the president having sex with the wife of his minister (standing right next to him). Vantage asks, WhatTheHellHero. Well, Zemo ended the conflict swiftly, decisively, and... let's hope... without loss of life. [[ComicallyMissingThePoint Isn't that what heroes do?]]
