Unit-M is a web comic about a team of superpowered Monsters assembled to combat human-Monster violence and stand against prejudice.
The comic takes place a world where Monsters with bizarre features and amazing abilities live among ordinary people.

- Meteor (Team Leader)
- Shield (Second-In-Command)
- Hawk (Operations)
- Agent Orange (Operations)
- Dreadlocke (Monster Expert)
- Blackout (Covert)
- #0.1 Escape Velocity
- #0.15 Christmas Caper
- #0.2 Hashtag Hell
- #0.3 Copycat Calamity
- #1 Ad Astra Per Aspera
Unit-M provides examples of:
- Action Girl: Shield's an ex-military hard-ass that can project force fields and carries a gun in her purse. Enough said.
- All Men Are Perverts: When Shield posts a photo of herself in a low cut workout top online, she's quickly deluged with vile, sexually explicit messages.
- Big Breast Pride: Shield proudly flaunts her curves with revealing outfits. However, in an issue where she's harassed about her chest size, she responds by covering up more and more as the abuse intensifies.
- Boobs of Steel: Shield can do 125 sit ups in two minutes. Quite an accomplishment considering she's carrying around two bowling balls on her chest.
- Buxom Is Better: Subverted in an issue where Shield's curvaceous figure is the focal point of vicious online harassment.
- Cyborg: Meteor is part-Monster, part-machine. He can also activate battle armor.
- Distracted by the Sexy: Shield's physique and form fitting outfits regularly command the attention of other characters. Not so much her teammates though.
- Fantastic Racism: People hate and fear Monsters. This persecution is very reminiscent of that experienced by another M-word group in a different comic.
- Flying Firepower: Meteor can fly and project concussion beams from his hands and visor.
- Form Fitting Clothing: Basically, Shield's breasts cause this to happen in any outfit. Her preferred catsuit sports some pretty extreme boob socks.
- Giant Woman: In Issue 0.3, Unit-M faces off against a pair of twin sisters who have created a duplicate of themselves thats the size of a mountain.
- Hidden Buxom: Shield starts covering up after getting harassed online because of her chest size. Though the size of her breasts makes them impossible to completely hide.
- Latex Space Suit: Shield's catsuit leaves very little to the imagination.
- Male Gaze: Issue #0.1 is very guilty of this. Subverted in Issue #0.2 when the gaze is dropped as Shield's harassed over her appearance.
- Most Common Superpower: Shield sports breasts that are larger than her head. When she tries to post a selfie on social media, she's almost immediately harassed regarding their size.
- Orange/Blue Contrast: Agent Orange is a waking embodiment of this trope, sporting orange body hair and blue skin.
- Razor Wings: Hawk sports razor sharp metal wings that channel bio energy.
- Self-Duplication: The antagonists in Issue 0.3 are twin sisters called The Copycats. Their Monster powers enable them to create an unlimited number of duplicates of varying sizes.
