* 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.

Still, Morrison was frustrated he was forced to ditch Egg Fu's prehensile mustache.

* EyesDoNotBelongThere: Batman encounters the Ten-Eyed Men while on his journey around the world, who have an eye at the end of each finger. They were inspired by the Ten-Eyed Man, an old villain from {{the Silver Age|OfComicBooks}} that one of the writers remembered fondly.

* TheSilverAgeOfComicBooks: The series is set in the [[TheModernAgeOfComicBooks here and now]], but many of its characters are original creations of the Silver Age, and a lot of the minor characters (and even some of the major characters) have not been seen since that age ended.
