* ContinuityNod: Countless, particularly to the [[UsefulNotes/TheSilverAgeOfComicBooks Silver Age]]. Superman's wife is Lyla Lerrol, who [[StarCrossedLovers Superman met while time-stranded on Krypton]], the various Kryptonian geographical landmarks are callbacks to other Silver Age stories, etc. Creator/AlanMoore has stated repeatedly that he is a great fan of the Silver Age Superman, and everything that goes along with him.

The Series/{{Supergirl2015}} episode, cheekily titled "For the Girl Who Has Everything," makes rather more significant changes. Kara retains her old memories and spends a while trying to get out of the dream world before accepting that it's "real," and her sister Alex has to actually enter the dream herself to get her out. The Black Mercy then dies once it's pulled off, allowing the perpetrator Non to live to fight another day after a beating from Supergirl.

* EvilCannotComprehendGood: In both versions, it's implied at the end that Mongul is perfectly content with the fantasy of bloody conquest the Black Mercy is giving him. Whereas Superman is able to break free because, being a hero, he was able to comprehend ''something wrong'' with the fantasy he was given. It also shows in that when asked, Mongul speculates that Superman is living out a fantasy of conquest.

As stated above, the ''Justice League Unlimited'' episode is reportedly the only official adaptation of Alan Moore's work which Moore himself likes[[note]]The only other adaption he reportedly likes, official or otherwise, is Creator/HarryPartridge's AffectionateParody [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YDDHHrt6l4w&ob=av3e "Saturday Morning Watchmen"]][[/note]]. This is most likely because the show’s staff asked him for permission to adapt it and stayed true to the story's spirit while putting their own spin on most of the big plot beats (such as how the Black Mercy dream works). Moore is notorious for [[DisownedAdaptation asking to have his name removed from the credits of adaptations of his work]], but his name does appears in the credits for this episode.
