* 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 TheDCU... [[SnapBack not so]]...

* 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.
-->'''Batman''': This is mercy. *Leave*. Tell all the other reapers, tell everyone and everything like you that this world is protected.
-->'''Superman''': Whatever comes, we will face it.
-->'''The Flash''': Consider yourself warned.
--->'''Aquaman''': We stand guard here.
-->'''Wonder Woman''': We are the Justice League. Run.

* Yet another Grant Morrison example: in "Elseworlds," the Connor Hawke GreenArrow, who has just been invited to join the JLA, shows up at the Watchtower to find that the Key has taken it over and placed the entire League in drug-induced hallucinogenic comas to power a machine that will somehow turn him into a RealityWarper. The entire issue is one, long [=CMoA=] for Connor, as he singlehandedly defeats most of the Key's robot {{Mooks}} and stops the Key from completing his plan at literally the last second, armed only with a set of his father's ludicrous {{Trick Arrow}}s, which he isn't even trained in using.
