- "I am the Mighty J! A secret good samaritan doing good deeds all across Green Bay! After feeling satisfaction when I saved that lady [from being mugged] last night, I now devote my life to helping others in need, and stopping bad guys!"
The Mighty J! is the first comic in Season 9 of of Sibling Rivalries, and the 68th comic total.
Joel decides to become a superhero dubbed the "Mighty J" doing good deeds for others, after a night where Jose begged him to save a lady from being robbed at gunpoint.

- With Liam's use of a real pistol firing several times (although not killing anybody), a dark backstory about a murder, and more action sequences/near-death situations, this could very well be the darkest comic of the series, and certainly one of the PG-rated ones.
- In a similar structure to Season 7 comic "Life of Joel", the McReary family plays a minor role in the comic (only given one cameo) while Joel serves as protagonist, and he is doing positive things. Their role is smaller here than it was in "Life of Joel".
- The title is a reference to 2008 Nickelodeon animated series The Mighty B!, which GTA Nerd never watched. This is also the first comic to end in a punctuation mark since the Season 6 comic "Get Rec'd!" (three seasons ago).
- GTA Nerd mostly got the idea of Joel being a superhero after watching The Simpsons episode "Dark Knight Court" which sees Mr. Burns (usually the main antagonist) become a superhero dubbed "Fruit Batman".
- Some of the Mighty J's heroic deeds include:
- Helping to get Salvador and Eduardo's soccer ball out of a tube
- Helping his grandmother cross the street (marking her third appearance after "Haunted House of Horror" and "My Fair Slav-ee")
- Getting Michelle's cat Kaylee out of the tree
- Purchasing an entire meal to give to a homeless man
- Getting J.J. toilet paper as he is stuck in an untidy park restroom that never gets restocked with paper
- This comic marks the first time Giovanni actually appears carrying out a plan with the other Warriors; in this case, robbing a convenience store, only they all wear disguises and Giovanni wears a flight helmet to completely cover his face.
- Giovanni has more tattoos here than he did in his last major appearance, in Season 7 comic "Joyride" which he only had the Wisconsin Warriors logo on both of his forearms.
- The Criminal that first appeared in Season 5 comic "The Lockdown" is finally given a name; Liam Allen. This is his second major appearance as main antagonist since that comic.
- The comic features a small flashback to during the events of Season 1 around late October 2013, right before Joel will betray the McRearys in "Gonzales Vs. McReary", where Giovanni welcomes Joel into the Wisconsin Warriors (set on the same night as "The Big Trade-Off" right after that comics' events) and tells them they are now family, and will do whatever it takes to plan their takeover of Green Bay. The flashback was done in cheap pens (as opposed to the series using G-2 gel pens since Season 6) similar to flashback sequences in "Pack To The Future". Joel, Jose, and Marco were also drawn in their rougher Season 1 designs, while of course Giovanni only appeared via his arms.
- There is also a bit of a retcon here; in the flashback, Jose was not supportive of Joel turning to evil, and told him he is making a mistake. However, this was before "Gonzales Vs. McReary", and when he did appear in that comic, he was a bit evil just like his brother, before subsequent comics showed him as not supporting Joel anymore.
- It is also shown that Trevor was there since the beginning, despite him not appearing as a character or member until "Like Father, Like Sons (And Daughter)", set in July 2015 at the end of Season 3.
