** 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.

** 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?

* 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.

** What's stranger still is that any hero who has been published long enough has had at least one BroughtDownToNormal storyline wherein they've proven themselves to be heroes with or without powers. For example, Superman is usually shown to put even more effort into his career as a reporter and exposes crime and corruption that way.

* CharacterShilling: Clark outright claims that Batman "has always been the best of us" because he never got superpowers. Nevermind that he's not the only BadassNormal and others heroes have abilities besides their powers.

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."

* 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.
