** 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.

** Supernova's identity, even up to the very moment of his identity reveal. [[spoiler: The writers ''were'' going to have Booster shout, "Look at me! I'm Supernova!" just before getting killed trying to save the day, but decided GenreSavvy readers would pick that up as Supernova's identity.]]

* AuthorAppeal: The collected volumes make it clear which characters the writers loved most of all. Even Creator/DanDiDio, Editor in Chief of DC, got in on this; while Dan stayed out of much of the writing of 52 [[WordOfGod (his words, not mine)]], he did insist that [[spoiler: Ralph Dibny die as both "...a Hero and a husband."]] and had the end of the Ralph Dibny storyline rewritten.

** Grant Morrison is an avowed fan of the Silver Age, which is why many of the goofier characters appear in his stuff, such as Egg Fu in ''52'' (albeit DarkerAndEdgier). Still, Morrison was frustrated he was forced to ditch Egg Fu's prehensile mustache.
