Added DiffLines:

* RuleOfEscalatingThreat: The entire population of Biyala (one of Franchise/TheDCU's {{Qurac}}s) is killed in a single issue. Despite the horrified reactions of characters at the time, this had never been mentioned before (since ''52'' was a prequel), and the few times it was brought up again, it was "Dangit! Some people died!" rather than being a horrible, culture-breaking genocide.

* DependingOnTheArtist: The series retained a single breakdown artists (Keith Giffen) for all fifty-two issues to deliberately avert this trope and maintain consistent portrayals of characters throughout the series. There were minor variances over the year (the design of Natasha Irons when she first appears with ComicBook/InfinityInc does not match either her previous or later appearances, and the changing bust size of Renee Montoya and Kate Kane [[AccentuateTheNegative got a lot of criticism from internet reviewers]]), but these were few and far between.

** The issues veered wildly from dark to just plain silly, like going from Ralph's [[spoiler: seeming]] self-destruction to Lobo and space dolphin gods.

** [[spoiler: During the final clash against Mister Mind, Rip Hunter reveals that this will mark the beginning of Booster Gold's glory days, and "the dawn of something called the Megaverse." This was never brought up again. In fact, the follow up ''Booster Gold'' series centred around Booster actually having to retain his reputation as a "failed hero."]]



** The Heroes in the Everyman Project acted like stuck up snobs saying their better than the [[ComicBook/JusticeSocietyOfAmerica JSA]], but when Black Adam starts rampaging across the world, and Alan Scott asked for their help, they chickened out.

* {{Foreshadowing}}: This story, along with the ComicBook/SevenSoldiers maxi-series, sets up important plot points for Comicbook/FinalCrisis. The scenes showing what Batman did in his year off set up a number of points which become important during Morrison's run on Batman, and Rip Hunter's chalkboard predicts events in a whole host of future stories.

* JerkassGods: The Egyptian gods who power Black Adam. [[spoiler: During World War III, Captain Marvel begged them to sever their ties with him, but they laughed in his face, apparently in full support of Black Adam's rampage.]]



* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: Along with AbortedArc above, Grant Morrison indicated that there was originally supposed to be a resolution for Super-Chief, who literally fell through the clouds in the afterlife in his last appearance, but it had to be cut, though he intended to bring him back eventually. This never happened - he was last seen as a Black Lantern in Comicbook/BlackestNight, and a new Super-Chief eventually showed up much later during the "Grounded" arc in the ''Superman'' book.
