** Interesting to note, that they apparently have no problem with Feral's action (which change the world quite a bit). The probable explanations are: A - the nature of her actions (providing the world with limitless supply of donor organs) is extremely hard to misuse, B - person, who basically agrees to be constantly vivisected alive for the sake of others is most definitely NOT the kind of person who may willingly blow up the world, and C - from purely pragmatical point of view, the Conspiracy members & their friends and relatives also benefited from unlimited donor organ supply.


* ArcFatigue: The reveal of a mysterious enemy (or enemies), who knew all about supers before the rest of the world and assassinated the most powerful ones capable of transforming civilization, came in Chapter 1 all the way back in 2012. As of 2018, the comic is still going (though on the final chapter) and literally the only thing discovered about them is that Patrick has combed the minds of all the planet's politicians, rulers, and other significant figures and ''still'' has no idea who they are.

Another issue, is their presence is a significant motivating factor of Patrick claiming to not be a villain. As such, the lack of verification creates severe uncertainty in his arc, up until a literal mindscape dive.

* AlternativeCharacterInterpretation: Did the Conspiracy really kill the biodynamic children with the powers to communicate with disease and generate unlimited energy due to them threatening the Conspiracy's control of the world? Or did they do it because they were afraid of the potential of a [[TeensAreMonsters teenager who could]] set off a [[TheVirus sentient rabies plague]] or [[PersonOfMassDestruction nuke southern California]] just because they were having a bad day?


* BaseBreaker: Clevin. One end of the fandom views his budding romance with Allison as yet another "nice nerd wins over rich jerk" cliche, while the other end views that as unfair because he's come off as genuinely kind to others and with no resentment towards Allison for turning him down in the past. A third group argues that the story's not over yet and Clevin's character may end up taking an unexpected direction.

** The Exquisitely Crafted Table, referring to the round table in Chapter 8, jokingly referred to being a biodynamic in disguise or member of the conspiracy.


* HarsherInHindsight: In Chapter 5, Allison gets the idea to create a superhero union centered on protecting women from harassment, named the organization "Valkyrie". A similar advocacy for women in comics, The Valkyries, existed at the time, but ultimately [[https://www.hollywoodreporter.com/heat-vision/comic-book-retailer-advocacy-group-valkyries-closes-1140473 disbanded in 2018]] after testimonies from former members of abuse and neglectful leadership in the group.

** Pretty much the entirety of Issue 6 is about this trope, as Alison's world view, axioms, and such are beaten to the point of deconstruction, [[spoiler: culminating in her forcing a straw libertarian to use his powers in secret to save Feral from her fate (with the happy side effect of providing free replacement organs for ''the entire world''.)]]

It also helps that Allison is college-aged--exactly the time in someone's life when they'd be trying to sort through the complicated political and moral issues the comic covers, even if they ''weren't'' a superhero.


* StrawmanHasAPoint: After Allison acts to prevent a date rape by lifting the offender up by his neck, her roommate Violet accuses her of essentially being a former ChildSoldier with extreme PTSD. While this does not apply to the situation at hand, her point is not entirely wrong.
