Added DiffLines:

* AllGirlsWantBadBoys: Gender-Inverted. Jimmy has a crush on Mercy Graves, and even states that her being on the "dark side" only increases the allure. He seems to drop it after she beats the crap out of him, though.

Added DiffLines:

* BigBadWannabe: Lex Luthor, for all his ambitions of world domination, is hopelessly outclassed by Brainiac. He makes a deal with Brainiac to help dispose of Superman, whereupon he will seemingly chase Brainiac out of Earth, making himself a hero in the eyes of the populace. Unsurprisingly, Brainiac ends up turning on him. It turns out Luthor anticipated that, which is why he planted a self-destruct sequence on him. What he ''didn't'' anticipate was Brainiac already knowing about, and subsequently removing, said self-destruct sequence, leaving Luthor to be quickly flattened.
