* 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.

* TheBadGuyWins: [[spoiler: Jean Loring]] reunites with [[spoiler: her husband]] (albeit temporarily); technically all of [[spoiler: her]] hits work as expected. The arrested super-villains are set free by the courts. Even the Calculator outsmarts Batman and in later stories is upgraded into a sort of agent for hiring muscle and sorting the odds for a given crime.



* DrivenToMadness: Some readers have speculated that Ralph Dibny in the epilogue may be just speaking to his dead wife in a spiritual way or may be going insane.

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.]]
