** ...and the story even had a great historical sting by virtue of Diana doing that stunt at the very {{Playboy}} Club that had the famous reporter/feminist activist Gloria Steinem, undercover as a Bunny, there to record it all.

* Creator/GrantMorrison run on ''JLA'' is made up of back-to-back Crowning Moments of Awesome. Batman is able to expose the Hyperclan [[spoiler:as White Martians]], and is the first superhero to make them truly scared. The Flash manages to catch up to a rival speedster and punch him ''into space'' in less time than it takes a vase to hit the ground. Superman wrestles an [[OurAngelsAredifferent archangel]] immediately after restoring the moon to its orbit. In a dark alternate future where Darkseid's taken over, Batman spent seven years under torture at the hands of Desaad and ''won''. In the same alternate timeline, The Atom ''kills Darkseid''. Connor Hawke defeats a man bordering on nigh-omnipotence with one of his dad's old boxing glove arrows. And, in the end, ''the entire population of Earth'' is given superpowers and willingly joins the JLA ''and'' an army of angels in fighting a potentially galaxy-killing menace. You'd think that last one would be a huge event that would've shaken things up in Franchise/TheDCU... [[SnapBack not so]]...

* Back to Morrison's run, and the story which introduces Zauriel to the DCU (by having him chased down to Earth by renegade angels). Leaving aside the two epic moments of (a) Superman wrestling an angel, mentioned above, and (b) Wonder Woman managing to stop a city-sized spacecraft from crashing into San Francisco and destroying the city, the most awesome moment is the part where Superman stops the moon from falling out of it's orbit. At this point, Superman had his electro-magnetic powers, and he uses those to ''cause the Earth and Moon to repel each other'', saving both. Flash later questions him, wondering how he managed to pull off such an amazing feat. "He smiles, and it's that ''one'' smile he has, the one that reminds you he's not really from here. 'There were larger forces at work today, Wally', he says." The next panel is a wide-shot of the lunar surface, showing ''a giant finger-print on the surface of the Moon''.

* New 53 JLA #7 - Superman is captured by Rao, in a device designed to keep Kryptonians restrained on Rao's ship. Superman, after giving a TheReasonYouSuck speech to him, promptly starts exerting his strength. Rao tells him he can't escape. Supes replies? "I'm not trying to. I'm ''flying''." Using his incredible strength and simple use of his ability to fly, ''he crashes the whole ship into the moon''. [[http://scans-daily.dreamwidth.org/5956860.html As seen here.]]
* * The climax of "Justice League Rebirth #1" with Superman pulling a BigDamnHeroes by locating the weakness of The Reaper,an EldritchAbomination preparing earth for his race, and allowing the whole league to defeat it together, followed by the League giving it one hell of a BadassBoast that causes the creature to flee.

* [[http://scans-daily.dreamwidth.org/6582760.html ''New 52 JLA #10'']] - Rao has been depowered by a red sun as he is with Superman and his younger self. When he starts ranting and raving to Superman, said younger self calmly picks up a nearby polearm, and ''[[OffWithHisHead decapitates his older self]]''. He acknowledges the murder, but he also notes that ''[[FutureMeScaresMe becoming him]]'' would've been a far, far worse crime, and that he plans to not only take Krypton back to his time and teach its people how to live, but when his work is done, intentionally end his own life, "as I should have, long ago." He is ''serious'' about his redemption.

* In the Justice League limited series ''ComicBook/DCTheNewFrontier,'' John Henry's entire presence in the story is not only gut-wrenchingly tragic, but BadAss as all hell...until the point where it turns gut-wrenchingly tragic. Steel was never the most fascinating character, but knowing what really inspired him (let's just say it wasn't Superman) almost makes this the CrowningMomentOfAwesome for ''both'' characters.
