** Another one when the Watcher describes the 1602 universe:
--> We call it [[spoiler: 616.]]


* CharacterExaggeration: [[TropesAreTools An inevitable side-effect]] of trying to re-imagine around twenty well-known Marvel characters in a fresh historical setting. In general, the reinterpretations tend to emphasize just one aspect of the characters' well-known canon personalities.

* SayingTooMuch: When Richard Reed tries to convince Doom not to misuse his knowledge for evil, Doom tries to taunt him by claiming that his plans have brought chaos to England, such that the common folk believe that the strange weather they're experiencing portends the end of days. Except Doom remembers a second too late that Reed didn't ''know'' about the strange weather, and he didn't want him to know:
-->'''Reed:''' ... ''What'' strange weather, Otto?

* BittersweetEnding: [[spoiler:''1602: Spider-Man'' reveals that in time, history as we know reasserts itself until eventually, nearly everything Rojhaz had done to prevent his BadFuture undone. On the other hand, the serum Pym used with Peter's blood survives long enough until World War 2 to be used as the basis for Captain America.]]

Added DiffLines:

***Justified (at least in the original miniseries), in that, at that time, Parquah had not become Spider-Man, nor had he lost his uncle.

Added DiffLines:

* WhamLine: "[Stephen Strange] was wrong. [Virginia Dare] isn't the time traveller. [[spoiler:Is she, Rojhaz?]]"
-->[[spoiler:'''Rojhaz/Steve Rogers''': Well, if you put it like that, Ms. Strange, I guess she's not.]]

Added DiffLines:

** [[ComicBook/UltimateSpiderMan Peter is the protege of a Nick Fury]].


* FullFrontalAssault: Near the end of the Spider-Man miniseries, Henry Le Pym confronts Baron Octavius while gigantic and naked.



* GiantFootOfStomping: [[spoiler:How Octavius is dispatched, courtesy by Henri le Pym]].

to:

* FanDisservice: In the Spider-Man miniseries, Janet Le Pym appears naked all the time, but the sexiness is offset by the fact that she spends most of her appearances being tortured by Baron Octavius.
* FullFrontalAssault: Near the end of the Spider-Man miniseries, Henri Le Pym confronts Baron Octavius while gigantic and naked.
* GiantFootOfStomping: [[spoiler:How Octavius [[spoiler:Octavius is dispatched, courtesy dispatched by being stomped on by a gigantic Henri le Le Pym]].

Added DiffLines:

* AdaptationOriginConnection: In this continuity, Peter Parquah gains his spider powers from being bitten by a spider exposed to the same mystical energies that caused David Banner to become the Hulk.

Added DiffLines:

* AdaptationNameChange: Most name changes are slight and mainly consist of changing them to names more likely to exist in the early 17th century, but this continuity's versions of Dr. Doom and Dr. Octopus curiously swap their first names, becoming Otto Von Doom and Victor Octavius.

Added DiffLines:

* CompositeCharacter: In this continuity, David Banner becomes the Hulk after being exposed to the energies of the Anomaly while shielding Peter Parquagh from those same energies. After the accident, Peter also becomes something of a MoralityPet to Banner. In effect, this means that this continuity's version of Spider-Man also serves as this continuity's equivalent of Rick Jones.

* FullFrontalAssault: Near the end of the Spider-Man miniseries, Henry Le Pym confronts Baron Octavius while gigantic and naked.
