Continuity mistake: After the Mystery Men accidentally kill Captain Amazing, they make a quick exit, and The Blue Raja drops a fork while leaving. When we see Casanova hold up that fork to the machine we notice that the fork catches the light very well, as if it were new. Which means it wasn't the same fork, as the one that Blue Raja dropped wasn't that well polished to begin with.

Continuity mistake: The Shoveler says, "Nothing I couldn't move around" and puts out his thumb and pinky. Then cuts to a downward shot of the table and the three touch index fingers and pinkies. (00:34:59)

Continuity mistake: The Shoveler uses his hard hat as a fulcrum to shoot Roy up onto the roof of the car. When he kicks the shovel up a second later, he suddenly has the hat on.

Movie Nut

Continuity mistake: When the Bowler first introduces her ball, the material is mostly clear. When it's sitting on the table, the material is a slightly opaque pink.

Movie Nut

Revealing mistake: As the Spleen and Invisible Boy stand silhouetted in front of the moon, their motions are easy to tell as the film being run forward and backwards.

The Shoveller: God's given me a gift. I shovel well. I shovel very well.

Trivia: Listen to what the Blue Raja says when Captain Amazing has finished beating up the Red Eyes, he says something like: "With the punching and the hurting", this is a reference to the Simpsons, Professor Frink (voiced by the person who plays the Blue Raja) talks just like that.

Question: At one point, Blue Raja mistakenly says that Bowler's father's name was Sal, which she immediately corrects as being Carmine. I never caught this till now after watching a recent animated Batman movie, but two of the big mob bosses that are rivals in Batman are Sal Maroni and Carmine Falcone. Considering the influences of this movie, is this intended to be a reference to the two Batman mob bosses?
