Acrobat is a Webcomic about a hero who was sidekick to the world-famous Blackhawk, but has to learn how to be a hero after his mentor is murdered.

This webcomic provides examples of:

  • Filler Strips: Not in the normal sense, but the creator does post pinups, origins of characters, or short stories in between issues.
  • Flashback: Issue 8 starts off with Red Laser and Kid Laser facing Mr. Mental.
    • The filler between Issues 8 & 9 has a look at Wade's life as Canary.

  • For Science!: Gabriel Strife's reason for putting Magnum in the Powered Armor.
  • Generation Xerox: Blackhawk to his father The Hawk and Wade is kind of like this to Blackhawk. Peter even realizes this and wonders if Wade's life would be better without him.
  • Multiple-Choice Past: Plot Hole's "origin" were in fact all ripped off from various comics and movies with him as an hero and Plot Twist as an villain.
  • Nice Job Breaking It, Hero: Impersonating Blackhawk may have helped him take down Lopez and stopped the police from arresting him, but it also brings back his Rogues Gallery and first sidekick.
  • Secret-Keeper: Forced at first between Cassie and Wade. If he tells anyone she's Coil, she'll tell everyone that his Acrobat and visa versa. Best summed up by Wade. "I won't tell anyone it you don't."
