Added DiffLines:

* BatmanParody: The series has three different expies of Batman each serving a different function.
** Black Badness is meant to represent the general archetype of TheCowl. His style of dress and facial hair makes him more resemble Green Arrow but his role as the Society's second in command and his archnemesis Pierrot being an [[PracticallyJoker obvious Joker stand-in]] make him more Batman-like.
** Bernard and Fredick is supposed to be more of a parody of Silver Age/Adam West era Batman. Bernard is portrayed as a rich manchild with a drinking problem who drags a frightened teenager with him on life-threatening missions.
** Urban Crow is used to parody more modern appearances of Batman. He's TheComicallySerious with a strained relationship with the local police commissioner and flashy but horribly impractical tactics.

Added DiffLines:

* EightiesHair: The R-Men's resident Storm expy, named Blast, has such ridiculously large hair she has her own personal entourage of stylists to tend to it.


* ZeroPercentApprovalRating: Tarantula Man's entire rogues gallery is composed of people who know him personally, that includes his teachers, former friends, ex-girlfriends and all his living relatives. Even one of his friends who wasn't his enemy decides that he 'has' to be Tarantula Man's enemy, because he has to be something seriously wrong with him if this many people close to him all end up becoming super villains with grudges against him.

* AMindIsATerribleThingToRead: In "Mind Link" Professor R pulls the R-Men into his mind during a battle against a villain to come up with a battle strategy only to accidentally pull the villain in too. While the R-Men are [[ConditionedToAcceptHorror used to the professors antics to merely be grossed out]] the villain ends up traumatised.


* HorrifyingHero: Scary Hook would probably be more effective as a superhero if he didn't dress like a slasher movie villain.[[spoiler: also , if he wasn't an actual slasher movie villain pretending to be a superhero.]]

* ComplainingAboutRescuesTheyDontLike: The guy Captain Virtue was in the middle of saving in her premiere episode really didn't appreciate her non stop spouting of [[StrawFeminist feminist speech], and would much rather have Majestic save him since she never preaches about any of that........except Captain Virtue barely spoke to him beyond telling him she was going to save him, while when Majestic shows up she admits that her 'entire thing' is talking about female empowerment, and it was painfully obvious to both heroines that what the guy really hated about being rescued by Captain Virtue was that she was dressed in a non-revealing or form-fitting flight suit and not [[{{Stripperiffic}} a barely-there leotard]] like Majestic, who he was too busy [[MaleGaze staring at her under-cleavage]] to even know she was talking.

Added DiffLines:

* RealityWarper: "Purple Fannypack" is a deconstruction of how easy it would be for someone to suffer PowerIncontinence when they are shaped by your thought. Purple Fannypack ''was'' going to easily save the town with his powers....right up until [[MsFanservice Majestic]] showed up and [[DistractedByTheSexy made it very hard for him not to think to think about what he ''should'' be thinking about]].

* PoliceBrutality: In "Black Zebra" the police shoot Black Zebra at first sight. Admittedly he did turn up out of nowhere wearing an intimidating full bodysuit. However, they continue to harass him after he establishes he is a hero. Cock their guns again when he says 'black', accuse him of stealing his E.M.P producing watch because it looked expensive, throw a gun at his feet so they can claim he was armed when they shoot him, and when he takes off his mask to be less intimidating. The police open fire on him again without provocation they see he's black.

* PuppeteerParasite: The Venom expy "Poison" takes control of his host Freddy and forces him to do terrible things that he would never do himself. However this trope is not applied maliciously as Freddy is a lazy, selfish, slacking jerkass, and the 'terrible things' Poison makes him do are clean his house, make up with his family and girlfriend and re-enroll in college. The symbiote essentially forces him to act like a decent human being against his will.

* PretendToBeBrainwashed: In "MIND SLAVE", the minions of the Scarlet Man are simply pretending to be brainwashed by him since he's a rich and gullible idiot who gives them an amazingly comfortable lifestyle complete with trips to exotic locales with little personal hassle. It's so good that even the Jessica Jones parody decides to get in on the action.
