  • Before making a single edit, Tropedia EXPECTS our site policy and manual of style to be followed. Failure to do so may result in deletion of contributions and blocks of users who refuse to learn to do so. Our policies can be reviewed here.
  • All images MUST now have proper attribution, those who neglect to assign at least the "fair use" licensing to an image may have it deleted. All new pages should use the preloadable templates feature on the edit page to add the appropriate basic page markup. Pages that don't do this will be subject to deletion, with or without explanation.
  • All new trope pages will be made with the "Trope Workshop" found on the "Troper Tools" menu and worked on until they have at least three examples. The Trope workshop specific templates can then be removed and it will be regarded as a regular trope page after being moved to the Main namespace. THIS SHOULD BE WORKING NOW, REPORT ANY ISSUES TO Janna2000, SelfCloak or RRabbit42. DON'T MAKE PAGES MANUALLY UNLESS A TEMPLATE IS BROKEN, AND REPORT IT THAT IS THE CASE. PAGES WILL BE DELETED OTHERWISE IF THEY ARE MISSING BASIC MARKUP.

Accuser is a web animated series created by Stan Lee via Stan Lee Media. The protagonist is Dan Mason, a criminal defense attorney who became a vigilante after an explosion caused by a client of his got Dan's wife killed and crippled him. A mysterious character, known as the Stranger, provided him with a wheelchair that can be converted into a battle armor that can move his legs for him.

Tropes used in Accuser include:


  • Amoral Attorney: Dan Mason didn't care if his clients were guilty or not for as long as they paid his fees.
  • The Atoner: Dan Mason/Accuser became a vigilante to redeem himself for getting criminals back into the streets.
  • Because I'm Good At It: When interviewed by a reporter who described his recently acquitted client as a "racketeer and reputed killer", Dan Mason claimed he did his job and was "proud of it". His wife even complained he was "too good".
  • Death by Origin Story: Lucia Mason, Dan's wife, whose death was the reason her husband became The Atoner.
  • Faking the Dead: Charles Johnson Savitch, who secretly survived execution thanks to the experiments of Dr. Pirot.
  • How We Got Here: The first episode started with Dan Mason on a hospital bed and a mention of his wife's death. Then the viewers are treated to a flashback of the events that lead to this.
  • Scars Are Forever: While it's a smaller loss compared to becoming a widower, Dan Mason lost the ability to walk without the Accuser armor. Apparently, there's some hope he'll regain it but it has yet to be seen.
  • Shout-Out: Dan Mason has the same surname of Perry Mason, another defense attorney with a near-perfect winning streak. The difference is that, unlike Perry, Dan had no qualms about defending guilty people.
