!!This comic provides examples of:

* BackFromTheDead: Gio and his associates got together to wack his older brother Silver for his indiscriminate murder of made guys, but he just [[NeverFoundTheBody disappeared in an explosion]]. He returns years later for revenge, apparently not having aged. Gio does ask him how it's even possible, but Silver notes that he shouldn't be so surprised that in a group of people with superpowers, one should be able to defy death.
* CallingParentsByTheirName: Talia calls her father Gio by his first name as a sign of rebellion, despite his pleas for her to call him "dad". [[spoiler:She finally dies when Gio dies of a heart attack.]]
* ChromeChampion: He isn't shown using it much, but Al apparently has the power to turn his body into metal.
* {{Egopolis}}: The city of Oddyseus is named after the superpowered crime family that runs it.
* HavingABlast: Gio and Silver both have the ability to create explosions with their bloodline powers.
* HollywoodHeartAttack: [[spoiler:Gio dies of a chest-clutching heart attack during the climactic fight against his evil brother Silver.]]
* MySisterIsOffLimits: Chrissie and Richie follow their sister Talia on their [[TheDon father]]'s orders, then threaten Kurt (a black cop) for sleeping her, though Talia intervenes to stop them. While it was initially a one-night stand, Talia and Kurt eventually grow closer together.
* KilledMidSentence: [[spoiler:In the climax Talia kills Silver by dropping a helicopter on his head while he's in the middle of screaming "I'M GOING TO KILL YOU A--"]]
* MobWar: Silver Odysseus is hoping to incite a gang war that will engulf the city between Gio, the current Don of the Odysseus family, and Cane, an up-and-coming gangster.
* NighthawksShot: There's a send-up to the iconic shot when Talia meets with Kurt at a bar.
* NothingPersonal: When Silver kills his nephew Chrissie by dropping a building on him, he remarks that he has nothing against Chrissie personally, he just wants to hurt his brother by having him bury his son.
* PleasePutSomeClothesOn: When Talia's brothers threaten Kurt for [[touching their sister]], she intervenes with a FullFrontalAssault. Her oldest brother tells her to put on some clothes.
* ShockAndAwe: Richie Odysseus has a broad application of electricity powers, using them for both shock attacks and more creative uses like chaining someone up.
* SlashedThroat: Variation when Silver uses his [[HavingABlast explosive powers]] to silence someone rather than something sharp.
* SuperpowerfulGenetics: The mafia have superpowers thanks to the 'bloodline', hence why they favor Sicilians marrying each other to not dilute it.
* WeHardlyKnewYe: The comic opens with Kurt accompanying a more seasoned cop during a police raid on a Family warehouse. He knocks Kurt unconscious when he decides to just go in guns blazing, but is almost immediately killed himself when the presumed-to-be-dead Silver Odysseus appears to blow up the building.
