- Anvilicious: This setting practically beats the reader over the head with its themes about corruption and the abuses of American society.
- And the Fandom Rejoiced: Somewhat subverted the news that Supreme Power would be returning to the MAX label had a mix reaction from fans, especially since it was supposedly going to lightly follow the events of the last Supreme Squadron mini. But the actual mini has been closer in tone and quality to the original series since the failed attempt to move it from the MAX label bringing hope to Supreme Power fans that it wasn't Ruined FOREVER.
- Complete Monster: Redstone, Whiteface,
anyonemany in The Government, Emil Burbank... The "Heroes" aren't much better, but at least they're trying to be.
- Idiot Plot: Everyone in The Government... Right up until General Alexander shows up, lampshading it with "The Reason You Suck" Speech.
General Alexander: You had access to an artifact from a non-human civilization! Do you realize what you had, what you let get away from you? Do you? Then let me explain it to you! Imagine handing an F-16 to the Aztecs in 1521, when Cortez was at war with them, and instead of learning to fly so they could slice Cortez and his army to shreds, they cut off the wings to use as shields, the guns as clubs, and they take off the wheels because they figured they would look really cool hanging from the temple ceiling! This is exactly what you people and your agencies have been doing since day one, and worse still, you've been doing it in secret, not just from the public, which we expect, but from each other! As a result, the right hand doesn't know what the left hand is doing! And what has the left hand been doing all this time? Jerking off, that's what! And what've you got to show for it? One guy [Doctor Spectrum]! And a bunch of melted metal where the ship used to be!
- Jump the Shark: Ultimate Power is seen as this by many fans.
- Magnificent Bastard: General Alexander, Emil Burbank, Hyperion
- Toy Ship: Sort of; The Amphibian isn't a child, but is incredibly childlike, and her obvious attachment to Doc Spectrum is adorable.
