* GenreSavvy: Now a private investigator, Steeljack is approached by his former criminal cohort Cutlass (now a successful businesswoman) who asks for his help as someone used her weapons for a murder spree. Steeljack openly asks if Cutlass did it and is just using him to confuse the cops or even take the fall for her crimes. Her angry response convinces him as she was never a good liar.



* WrongGenreSavvy: A female reporter in the 1960's is convinced a co-worker is the superhero Atomicus and tries to prove it, convinced he's challenging her by having her figure it out and they'll be in love. When she does expose him, he erupts on how all he wanted was a normal life outside of his heroics and leaves Earth forever and she realizes too late this was never a romantic game.

* OtherMeAnnoysMe: In "Where the Action Is", several of Manny Monkton's depictions of in-unverse supers draw their ire. First, Nightingale chews him out for insinuating that she and her sidekick Sunbird are a lesbian couple. Then, Glowworm beats him up for depicting him as a white supremacist (which particularly offends him because [[YouKnowImBlackRight he's actually black]] under the PowerGlow). After Monkton gets the idea to avoid future problems by shifting his focus to high-level cosmic entities who (he thinks) won't care what he says about them, his office building disappears with him in it.
