* FutureBadass: His ''ComicBook/DCOneMillion'' self takes him from a relative nobody with famously unreliable powers into one of the strongest heroes of the 853rd Century. Not only has he developed tons of experience and prestige, but he's completely mastered his powers to resurrect immediately and gain the powers he needs, which he even exploits by poisoning himself for an instant whenever he wants to switch powers.

* GenderBender: One resurrection had Mitch come back as a woman. This is actually a plot point. As a woman, Mitch's pain tolerance is higher, allowing him to bypass a gate that normally emitted so much pain it caused him to pass out.

* AmnesiacDissonance: Turned out Mitch wasn't a very nice guy in his pre-Resurrection Man life, a corrupt lawyer deep in mob business. He seems to have been better in previous incarnations.
** The New 52 version was even less of a nice guy in his former life; [[spoiler: he was running the nanobot project, and conducting illegal human testing]].
