* ObfuscatingDisability: Averted. Ralph Dibny believes that minor villain Professor Milo is faking the need for a wheelchair so he can disguise a mystical artifact as one of the wheels. Ralph then rips off the wheel since he needs it for a ritual that will supposedly revive his late wife Sue. He is horrified when he realizes that Milo wasn't faking his disability. Milo really needed that wheelchair ''since he lost both of his legs''.

* KilledOffForReal: [[spoiler: ComicBook/TheQuestion, Osiris, Isis, and others]]. Their deaths were either drawn-out and heart-wrenching ([[spoiler: The Question]]) or graphic and brutal ([[spoiler: Osiris]]). Commentary in the trade paperbacks revealed that the authors and artists drew from personal life experiences for the more emotional deaths, whereas others were specifically designed to be as graphic as they could possibly be in a comic book.

* ThereAreNoTherapists: When all the heroes who went out into space in Comicbook/InfiniteCrisis are rescued and brought down to Australia they have all been mutated, transformed, merged or deformed in unique and disturbing ways. Original Franchise/GreenLantern Alan Scott got off lighter than almost anybody else - he only lost one eye, but even the eye he still has was not originally his and his daughter Jade died during the Crisis. {{Steel}} recognizes that, physical rehabilitation aside, all these returning heroes are going to need counseling to help them deal with what happened, but Alan is adamant that that is not even an option.

The major consequences of the series on Franchise/TheDCU as a whole is proving that the [[spoiler: DC Multiverse still exists]] as well as setting up some of the future storylines of some of its major characters. It also set the standard for weekly yearlong series published by DC, which has yet to be equaled by any of the other series that have followed.

* SelfDeprecation: Mark Waid came up with the title for Week 35, "Rain of the Supermen." Not everyone thought the title was appropriate. Then in Week 38, an in-universe newspaper, The Daily Star, uses "Rain of the Supermen" as their headline about the event. A character comments, "What do you expect... The Daily Star's a rag that's been kissing Luthor's ass for years."
This list shows the last 10 events of 112. Show all.
