Sue's autopsied, and it is revealed [[spoiler:she didn't actually burn to death. Meanwhile, Jean Loring (ex-wife of Ray Palmer, aka ComicBook/TheAtom) is nearly lynched by an unknown assailant, and [[Franchise/{{Superman}} Lois Lane]] is threatened by someone who knows she married Franchise/{{Superman}}. Tim Drake goes through a parental struggle with his father, who knows Tim is Robin and wishes for his safety. [[Franchise/TheFlash Captain Boomerang]] reconnects with his bastard son and discovers he is a speedster. While the divorced Atom and Jean reconnect, Jack Drake, Tim's father, is sent a gun with a warning and attacked. Jack uses the gun to kill his attacker, Captain Boomerang, but is killed by one of Boomerang's weapons. Robin and Boomerang Jr. both lose their fathers, and the mystery is apparently solved… until the autopsy of Sue reveals tiny footprints in her brain, which really killed her. Batman learns of this and deduces also that the Atom didn't kill Sue, and we learn that Jean discovered one of Atom's spare suits. In an attempt to reconnect with Ray (her ex-husband), Jean tried to organize an illusion of a threat to superhero families, but accidentally killed Sue and hired the wrong assassin for Jack Drake. Ray commits Jean to Arkham Asylum, shrinks to a microscopic size, and disappears completely. In the end, the League is shaken up, it is implied by Green Arrow that Batman might know he was mind-wiped; Dr. Light regains his old personality, Boomerang's son becomes the new Captain Boomerang, and Ralph Dibny is now a widower.]]

Added DiffLines:

** It also deconstructs the idea of the supposedly super-prepared Batman "vs. The Justice League." The fight is [[CurbStompBattle no fight at all]] with Batman quickly dogpiled and overpowered, even by heroes who ''don't have superpowers.''

* GenreSavvy: While some villains are happy to the news of Sue's murder, other villains are smart enough to realize that this would only led to a witch hunt from the superhero community against the supervillains. Captain Cold even makes a point to have him and The Rogues [[EvenEvilHasStandards send their condolences to try to set themselves apart from the crime]].

Added DiffLines:

* DatingCatwoman: In the follow-up comic, ''Crisis of Conscience'', Batman says he is especially upset because he fears that Catwoman’s HeelFaceTurn is due to [[spoiler: Zatanna manipulating her mind.]]

* ForgotAboutHisPowers: So many in the fight with Deathstroke.
** Wally West forgets ''everything'' he can do aside from "run fast". Using the Speed Force to speed up his perceptions? Forgotten, unless he ''wanted'' to run into a sword. Stealing speed? Gone. Using his healing factor? Gone. Just making a tornado to blow Slade away? Gone.
** Kyle forgets that his ring's entire point is to be a ''ranged'' weapon. He doesn't just not create constructs, he also doesn't even bother with lasers or containment bubbles.
** Black Canary forgets her Canary Cry can destroy ''steel'' and also all of her martial arts training.



* IdiotBall: A superhuman search for evidence lead by "[[Franchise/{{Batman}} The World's Greatest Detective]]" [[spoiler:doesn't check the phone records. Of course, no one would have seriously suspected Jean at the time, and she could easily have explained it, considering they knew each other, but no mention of her call is made]].

* KeepingSecretsSucks: Wally West finds this out in the end when he keeps quiet about the Justice League's [[MindRape mind rapes]] on villains and especially the one on Batman. Wally considers the mind rapes immoral and that they ought to be disclosed, but he's also very aware that if Batman ever finds out for sure what really happened, it would probably bring about the JLA's breakup as well as possible trouble for half its well-intentioned members. You can see in Waaly's final panel in the story that the dilemma is eating him inside.

* MeaningfulBackgroundEvent: When Dr. Light suddenly recovers his memory in the middle of a fight he flashbacks to the Justice League Tower where he's overpowered by all the League's members present. It's the very same scene that was shown when Green Arrow flashbacks the event for Barry Allen, the difference is that in Dr. Light's flashback, [[spoiler: Batman]] is also included in the melée. If you're not looking for him you might miss this important detail.
