* DorkAge: Oh, boy... This story is infamous for "revealing" that Tony Stark was in the thrall of Kang since the Avengers first fought him and killing people, introducing Teen Tony, Mantis joining with Kang, and Wasp becoming a mutated wasp-like creature. Thankfully, ''ComicBook/{{Onslaught}}'' and ''ComicBook/HeroesReborn'' mercy-killed it and when ''Comicbook/HeroesReturn'' happened, adult Tony was resurrected and back on the side of good and Wasp was back to her old self. ''Comicbook/AvengersForever'' also helped to undo the damage by retconning that Tony was being manipulated by Immortus since only ''ComicBook/OperationGalacticStorm'' and the "Mantis" seen in ''Crossing'' and many of the people helping "Kang" were Space Phantoms.
** The sad thing is that the whole point of the saga was to finish a previous Dork Age, the one where the Avengers all used brown jackets and became more agressive; The Crossing retconned Deathcry into a young Shi'Ar whose extreme warrior views were a facade to protect herself, Vision had recently recovered his feelings and tried to rekindle his relationship to Wanda, Kang's "sons" Tobias and Malachi were going to be Vision and Wanda's lost sons, the Wasp's transformation was a way to take her back from retirement, etc. The problem was that the story and following issues left so many stuff LeftHanging and it wasn't solved due to Onslaught turning a new page. Not only did this did little to solve the problems it was supposed to fix, ''but created new, bigger problems'' that took ''four separate story lines and several years'' to finally fix.
** The whole thing was especially irritating for ''ComicBook/IronMan'' fans, following a solid run by Len Kaminski that had set Tony up to be an active do-gooder both as Iron Man and as head of Stark Enterprises. Then Terry Kavanagh comes in and scrap all that for an ill-received FaceHeelTurn. And bear in mind, Kavanagh was also the guy who pitched ''ComicBook/TheCloneSaga''. Kaminski has since [[https://www.cbr.com/iron-man-teen-tony-stark-quit/ revealed this story is exactly why he left]] as [[ExecutiveMeddling it was insisted upon by editorial mandate]] and he refused to be part of a story that'd ruin Iron Man.

* MisBlamed: A case where this trope played a role in a writer's departure. As noted above, after realizing the Editors were going to go through with this story despite his protests, Len Kaminski chose to bolt from ''Iron Man'' rather than have this very thing befall him.

* HilariousInHindsight: Hamilton doesn't get many lines in this film in his role as Washington's lieutenant, to the point where he comes off as TheQuietOne. Thanks to ''Theatre/{{Hamilton}}'', the irony is apparent to pretty much everybody, rather than just history buffs who already well knew Hamilton's habit of never keeping his opinions to himself.
