** Flash defeating Boomerang is suitable considering one of his main foes is another boomerang-themed villain, Captain Boomerang.



** After almost being defeated by Radioactive Man and Solarr Superman is restored by the Vision using his last stores of solar energy. Two panels later, Superman is at Krona's last line of defence, and the two villains are piled on the Grim Reaper, who Superman was fighting before Radioactive Man and Solarr attacked.



* StrongAsTheyNeedToBe: Superman and Thor are as strong as the plot requires. Thor can take on Superman and the Martian Manhunter simultaneously in the first fight, but Superman alone can knock him out (even so, Thor claims in the last issue that he has a good idea of how powerful Superman is and could possibly beat him in another fight). In the final battle, Superman defeats Count Nefaria, a villain who can take on Thor ''and'' the entire Avengers team at once. Rising to the challenge, Thor defeats Doomsday, who is famous for killing Superman. {{Word of God}} is that Thor only knocked Doomsday off the panel, not that he was actually defeated.

** Later he uses his control of marine life to shut down the minds of Atlanteans guarding Krona's citadel.



* TrialByFriendlyFire: Towards the end of #4 when both worlds are close to collapse, the heroes are fighting Attuma and his Atlanteans, however Aquaman is able to shut all their minds down, despite the Atlantean Avengers Namor and his wife Marrina being among those fighting the Atlanteans. The half-Atlantean Namor withstands this, though is left with a headache. However Marrina is left with her mind out. Aquaman apologizes to Namor, saying it was the only way.

** Hawkeye's reaction to [[spoiler:Darkseid getting ahold of the Infinity Gauntlet. However, Darkseid discards it when he learns that the powers the gauntlet should allow him to control don't exist in the DC Universe]]. Made even better by the fact that Hawkeye recognizes Darkseid as being the most evil being in the multiverse even though he never met him (he says Darkseid "looks even worse than {{Thanos}}, if that's even possible").

** Averted, predictably enough. Dr. Light yells "Captain Marvel -- look out!" [[ComicBook/CaptainMarVell Marvel!Captain Marvel]] and [[{{Shazam}} DC!Captain Marvel]] simultaneously thank her. And in the background of that panel is Monica Rambeau/Photon, who originally went by "Captain Marvel" as well.

* DoesNotLikeGuns: Namechecked by Batman, of course; when Tony tells Bruce that he's sorry the modifications sacrificed the Atlantean warcraft's guns, Bruce replies he didn't care - he doesn't like guns.

** Flash and Hawkeye during the first battle are having ''fun''. [[spoiler: They share the same jocularity during the final battle while fighting side-by-side, eventually coming up with a plan to defeat Krona.]]

* ButtMonkey: Poor Wally West really gets the short end of the stick in this one. On his first visit to the Marvel Universe he discovers that he has lost his powers, as there is no Speed Force there. He is summarily beaten by an angry mob mistaking him for one of ComicBook/{{Magneto}}'s Acolytes. He then gets owned by Iron Man. And then by Quicksilver (much to the latter's delight). Then he is completely AWOL in the big brawl at the climax (save a one-panel cameo as Dark Flash) and shows up at the very end, having ''just missed'' a chance to see Barry. He is owned by Quicksilver on their ''third'' encounter. Wally won the first two (though the second one was kind of accidental, because he was more worried about outrunning {{ComicBook/Darkseid}}'s Omega Beams than beating Quicksilver).

** Hawkeye considering the Justice League a "bunch of SquadronSupreme wanna-bes". Marvel's Squadron Supreme was originally created as a parody/homage/AlternateCompanyEquivalent of DC's Justice League. In fact, that particular scene was similar to the appearance scene of the Squadron Supreme at the begining of Kurt Busiek's run on the Avengers. "Five gets you ten they're mind-controlled!" is to point that Hawkeye is GenreSavvy and realizes the RecycledScript (the Squadron Supreme was indeed mind controlled back then). Of course, only the scene was similar, everything else that followed was different. As he pointed when he complained that the boomerang arrow would have worked with Whizzer; it ''did'' work with him.

** In the beginning, the Avengers are fighting Starro the Conqueror, and having a bit of trouble since they've never fought him before. They realize his small copies can control minds, though. Then one of them latches onto ComicBook/TheMightyThor. This is not good news.
