* 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.

Added DiffLines:

* 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.

Added DiffLines:

** 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.

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, 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."

Added DiffLines:

* OutOfCharacterMoment: In part 3, Wonder Woman is seen in a Catholic church, praying to the Christian God for a sign/answers as to why she's lost her powers. Being a servant, avatar, and occasionally ''member'' of the Greek pantheon, there is absolutely no way she would be doing this.

A DCComics {{Elseworlds}} storyline by Doug Moench about heroes everywhere losing their powers and learning to live with it. This story was somewhat different from other DC Elseworlds, which normally recast the heroes in completely different times and places, rather being set in a copy of the then current DC Continuity (similar to the ''What If'' stories at {{Marvel}}).

* WolverinePublicity: It's not really a JLA story but at the time, Creator/GrantMorrison's extremely successful revival of the JusticeLeague made anything with JLA in the title sell well.
