- The general public knows Max is the son of Moleculon. The public does not know he is Mercury Man!
- There are forces out there that know of his super abilities and are keeping a tab on him because they fear the apple doesn't fall far from the tree,
- Max fears that because he is his fathers son, he may become what he fights against.
- Secretly Max is looking for answers. He will go to great lengths to discover more about his heritage and the Enforcers.
- Max chose his superhero name from the god Mercury. In a way, the name Mercury Man is a homage to the Enforcers and the gods among men that they were.
