Comicbook/{{Superman}} becomes despondent, seemingly traumatized over the last disaster he was unable to prevent as his powers were fading, and is seen doing nothing but moping all day, to the point that Lois leaves him, causing him to go mope with WonderWoman, until she converts to Catholicism and gets a job as a stock broker. Green Lantern can't get over his defeat by Sonar and, after months of rampaging around his apartment, begins channeling his aggression into a boxing bag looking for a rematch. The tech-based heroes, consisting of Steel, ComicBook/BlueBeetle and ComicBook/BoosterGold, each in turn lose their tech or have it stolen. {{Supergirl}} (Linda Danvers) tries joining the police force, but is frustrated with all the paperwork that comes with fighting crime "by the book."

*** Notably the fact that if Aquaman lost his ability to breathe water and survive the pressures of the deep, that means his people probably all died.

* UselessWithoutPowers: The comic depicts ''all'' superheroes with powers as being like this. For example, Superman becomes a moping depressive after he loses his Kryptonian powers. However, some former superheroes, like Wonder Woman, still try to help out as {{Badass Normal}}s.

** Was it limited to Earth? Did the New Gods also lose their powers? Was that why they were never invaded by Darkseid? If so, then if technology still works, he could still conquer the planet. Why? didn't Zeus or ''some'' Greek god contact Wonder Woman?

* OnlySaneMan: AS noticed by Linkara, Billy Batson, of all the other superheroes, is the ONLY ''ONE'' to act realistically and even '''maturely''' over all this situation.

** Lois Lane. Big time. The story suggests that Lois can't love Superman without powers, even though in this continuity, she fell in love with Clark Kent before learning he was Superman. This suggests that Moench is basing his characterization of Lois off of either the SilverAge comics or the movies. What's worse is, if the story needed Lois to leave Superman, it could have easily been justified [[{{Wangst}} by his behavior]].

** Also, there's a comment about Supergirl's actions as a superhero was an abuse of power, acting outside the law, only to disregard this and comment about how inefficient police work is and how much more effective she was as a superpowered vigilante and how she should go back to being a vigilante. Then it breaks that aesop because standard police work (like forensics) did more to uncover what happened to TheAtom than vigilantism.

* RecycledPremise: Depowering supers was part of the premise of the Genesis CrisisCrossover just a few years prior, and the Black Light bears more than a passing resemblance to the Godwave. None of the characters comment on this, despite the similarity to the still-recent Genesis event.

** While the depowering event affects almost everyone, it should have been lethal to Aquaman and Wonder Woman. While Aquaman's fish-controlling powers are most famous, he's an Atlantean who can breathe in the air for an extended period of time -- an ability that should have been removed. Wonder Woman has it even worse, as without magic, she'd just be a woman-shaped pile of clay.
