This comic series was also the inspiration behind ''Blog/DialBForBlog'', a comic "blogazine" in which Robby (usually [[SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker Jokerized]]) is the AuthorAvatar of Kirk Kimball.

** [[WesternAnimation Ben 10]] is this for Robbie. As is (maybe) the Sleeper from WildCards.

* DarkerAndEdgier: ''Dial H'', a revision along the same lines as ''Comicbook/DoomPatrol'', '' ComicBook/TheSandman'', ''Comicbook/BlackOrchid'', and the other DC titles which were transplanted to VertigoComics. Though China Mieville has [[LampshadeHanging lampshaded]] that this technique is not new. That said, its inherent goofiness was still a big part of its appeal in contrast to the serious nature of the majority of the New 52.

Added DiffLines:

* InstantExpert: In some iterations the user automatically knew what their powers were and how to use them after dialing into a new hero, sometimes they have to play around with them a little to figure out what they can do, or at least the practical applications.

* HeartIsAnAwesomePower: A number of the powers shown seem incredibly useless initially but turn out to be really effective.

If you answered ''WesternAnimation/{{Ben 10}}'', well, you'd be right. But ''decades'' [[OlderThanTheyThink before that show premiered]], the concept was used in a Creator/DCComics series titled '''Dial H For Hero'''.

In May 2012 a new version of ''Dial H For Hero'', titled simply ''Dial H'', and written by ChinaMieville, was introduced as one of the second wave of ComicBook/{{New 52}} titles, rebooting the canon. It introduced a new dial, this one identical to an actual rotary phone dial, and two new wielders. The first was Nelson Jent, who had lost his job, let himself go to seed, and was on the path to self-destruction, and the second was Roxie "Manteau" Hodder, an occultly trained electrical engineer who acted as his mentor. It was cancelled the following year, after sixteen issues. A postscript issue, titled ''Dial E'', followed as part of DC's "Villains Month" event.
