* WhateverHappenedToTheMouse: The fate of Superman. Though Fies uses images from the original cartoon directly in the comic, they falling under Fair Use, for copyright reasons he couldn't create original drawings of the Man of Steel. He explains in his blog notes that since everyone in the world ''knows'' what happened to him, they don't feel any need to discuss it in the story.

Added DiffLines:

* VillainProtagonist: Sparky, obviously.


* BewareTheSillyOnes: As a villain, ninety-nine year old Sparky is pretty laughable. But his rage is real, and he ''did'' restore a flaying, flame throwing robot to working order.

Added DiffLines:

* ComicallySmallBribe: Sparky tries to bribe a bus driver to drop him off in the middle of an uninhabited area near his lair with a $5.00 bill.


Added DiffLines:

* NoNameGiven: Our villain protagonist's given name is never revealed, but Lillian nicknames him "Sparky".


* ItsAllAboutMe: Why didn't Sparky become famous for inventing his robots? Because two weeks after his was arrested the [[UsefulNotes/WorldWarTwo Japanese bombed Pearl Harbor]]. He regards this as a ''personal insult.'' Fortunately he gets a [[CharacterDevelopment bit better about it]]

Added DiffLines:

* CutLexLuthorACheck: As Lillian [[spoiler: ultimately takes advantage of]] any of Sparky's inventions, from an AI that runs on vacuum tubes to flying robots, could have earned him ''millions'' in 1941. Instead he used them to rob jewelry stores...


* RealityEnsues: During a failed test run, Sparky's robot hilariously tosses him over the side of a crevice. Which results is several broken ribs and a fractured skull [[spoiler: that ultimately he never recovers from.]]
