This series contains examples of:
- Comedic Sociopath: The miniseries runs on it. The first issue alone has Mike causing a shoot-out in a children's restaurant.
- Even Evil Has Loved Ones: Mike has a wife and daughter. Subverted as he doesn't especially love them.
- Evil Is Petty: The main reason why Human Flame has been a small-time villain for most of his career is because he just can't stop himself from being a dick to everyone else. At heart, he's just an asshole with fancy equipment.
- Kick the Dog: In the opening of the first issue, Mike wakes up from a coma and punches an attending nurse in the face. Later, he returns to his family, makes a big show of how he's going to do right by them this time... and then steals his wife's car with his daughter's bike still attached.
