** ComicBook/{{Brainiac}} is at least as powerful as powerful as Superman due to his tech and possesses a vast arsenal of overpowered weaponry (more advanced than Kryptonian or even Apokliptian technology), which explicitly was not affected. [[FridgeHorror What, if anything, is stopping him now?]]

** No government officials get involved in what would be a society changing event and the sudden loss of the world's greatest defenders. * WolverinePublicity: It's not really a JLA story but at the time, Creator/GrantMorrison's extremely successful revival of the Franchise/{{Justice League|of America}} made anything with JLA in the title sell well.

** DeusAngstMachina: Mostly for Superman and Green Lantern.Lantern, but Wonder Woman also gets it pretty bad.



* 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.

** Another issue is why, when a few decide to train with Batman, they're treated as little better than rookies. They have had years of action and conditioning long before losing power. Sure, using Batman's methods would be a big adjustment, but not nearly as difficult of one as the comic makes it seem.



** All sorcerer heroes. Dr. Fate, Zatanna, Raven, Constantine, and others who could possibly counter the effect or investigate it are conveniently absent from the story.

** All sorcerer heroes. Dr. Fate, Zatanna, Raven, Constantine, and others who could possibly counter the effect or investigate it are conveniently absent from the story. Nobody seems to care too much about finding out what happened to these people or even determine how many others spontaneously vanished afterwards.

to:

** A group of supervillains attacks with stolen super technology. Sure, Batman's little crew stopped them at the end, but there is nothing stopping other villains from trying this again. With all the more potent tech heroes either killed or just giving up entirely after one loss, what's to stop other villains from trying the same thing. The biggest super-tech bad guys on Earth are still around and Batman's small team alone isn't nearly enough to stop them all.
** No one questions any cosmological changes to the universe from the Black Light event when divinely-connected characters either lose power or suddenly disappear.
** Despite Superman being chastised for failing to finish saving people from breaking dam in the beginning, none of the other heroes are worried about the fact that none of them are equipped to address larger scale natural or technological disasters afterwards.
** No government officials get involved in what would be a society changing event and the sudden loss of the world's greatest defenders.

** 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?

* ScrewThisImOuttaHere: [[TheFlash Wally West]] does this halfway through his training under Batman. When he comes back, Bruce just tells him to pick up where he left off.

** Of course, if you take into account the ending of ''ComicBook/WhatEverHappenedToTheManOfTomorrow'' (assuming you consider it canonical) and the (however brief) relationship between Lois and [[strike: Superman]] Clark in SupermanII, then this '''still''' doesn't hold water.

* [[TookALevelInJerkass Took a Level in Arrogance]]: Batman. Which breaks the already BrokenAesop about humility even harder as the story takes his side.



** The story later implies that {{God}} (Yes, that one) caused this whole mess in order to teach the DC heroes a [[LostAesop "lesson of humility"]] or something like that. The same God directly responsible for creating, powering, and directing several of 'em.

*** This ''may'' be slightly justified if God decided to revert to an "Old Testament"-style mentality... But mostly, it would just raise further questions.



*** 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.

* WriterOnBoard: It seems the primary purpose of this story is to exalt {{Badass Normal}}s like Batman who don't need powers to take down criminals. Not that any non-powered heroes ''outside'' of Batman's crew ever show up, while tech-based superheroes all screw up or are killed. And apparently "tech-based" heroes are solely the ones that wear PoweredArmor, completely ignoring the vast amount of technology that Batman uses.
