Added DiffLines:

* BadassCreed: John recites the Green Lantern oath, which impresses onlookers.
-->'''Gear:''' Whoa. We really need an oath.
* BatmanGambit: Sinestro baited John by pretending to be a distressed astronaut in a distant location. As expected, after John arrived, he summoned his power battery for a recharge as a precaution. Once the battery was in view, Sinestro revealed himself, stole the battery, and fled. While Sinestro was wreaking havoc disguised as John, the real John drained much of his remaining power just getting back to Earth and was left too weak to face him alone.


Added DiffLines:

* DeusExitMachina: The rest of the Justice League was already away when Sinestro's phony distress call was picked up by the Watchtower.

* RebuiltPedestal: Virgil's faith in John is restored once he learns Sinestro framed John.

Added DiffLines:

* BrokenPedestal: As a black superhero, Virgil really looked up to John as a role model. Seeing him apparently committing crimes completely destroyed his faith in him.


* AnAesop: Being a hero isn't about the attention or showing off, but about protecting people.
** Whatever mistakes you make, shifting the blame won't change that it was your responsibility.
* CharacterDevelopment: The episode starts out with Static proud of being a hero, to the point that he lets himself get carried away. After he accidentally putting Daisy in a coma, he's angry at Puff and Onyx for their indirect involvement, but ultimately accepts it was his fault. After he's been humbled by the experience, Static faces off against Puff and Onyx again, only with a better awareness that they need to take the fight where no one can get hurt. Failing that, he puts all his effort into protecting the civilians from harm, allowing Rubberband Man to deal with the escaping bad guys.
* EarnYourHappyEnding: There was no guarantee Daisy would come out of the coma any time soon. It could've been months, maybe years before she woke up. By the end of the episode, after worrying for her, Virgil is relieved to hear the news that she's come to.
* NeverMyFault: Static initially has this mindset after Daisy goes into a coma, unable to accept that she wouldn't be in that coma if it weren't for his pride.
* OnlySaneMan: Rubberband Man is one of the few people who recognized that Static was getting too proud and foresaw that his recklessness would eventually hurt someone. Later, he stops Static from hunting down (and presumably killing) Puff and Onyx in anger.
* WhatTheHellHero: Rubberband Man gives two to Virgil. The first is for letting the fame get to his head, to the point he's allowed himself to grow reckless when it comes to people's safety. The second is for trying to blame Puff and Onyx for putting Daisy in a coma when in reality, the blame falls at Static's feet.
