Added DiffLines:

* BadBoss: Lady Zakara, who run STEALTH, practically kills her minions on a whim if one so much as even questions her as well as failure. When she does get her hands on time travel, she kills even more just to keep the secert to herself despite one trying to warn her of the effects of said time travel.


Added DiffLines:

* DisproportionateRetribution: Handz has Wanye framed for robbery simply because he tried to fight him, despite 1) Handz pretty much made his point by nearly crushing Wanye's hands and 2) this came after Wanye had ''saved Handz' girlfriend from a drive-by attempt''.


Added DiffLines:

* MadeOfIron: Zorgal of STEALTH. Zakara blows him up for no reason and he manages to survive unscathed. When the Flash tries to fight him head on, her punches barely do anything and it takes having to actually electrocute him to stop him.


Added DiffLines:

* SelfDisposingVillain: Zakara who the Flash barely meets for ten seconds before she drops dead due to after effects of time traveling causing her to [[RapidAging rapidly age]]. One of her henchmen did ''try'' to warn her but she stupidly kept brushing aside their concerns.


Added DiffLines:

* UngratefulBastard: Handz, the main villain of Batman's origins, practically antagonizes Wayne just because he ''saved his girlfriend from a drive-by attempt''. Seriously.

ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin, ''Just Imagine...'' was a series started in 2001, when Stan Lee collaborated with Creator/DCComics to reimagine DC's biggest heroes from his own storytelling perspective. Origins are radically changed (as are the causes for their powers) while still keeping to the basic mythologies of the various characters.

* IncompetenceInc: This doesn't even ''begin'' to describe STEALTH. Their boss, Lady Zakara, constantly kills her henchmen at the slightest provocation and tries to kill her own Dragon even after he proved loyal and effective, ignores warning from her men about the dangers of TimeTravel, and her men keep working for her despite all of this. In fact, by the end of the book, the Flash barely had anything to do in order to defeat them, because they did a pretty good job at destroying themselves.

* NormalFishInATinyPond: On Krypton, all police officers are [[SuperCop genetically engineered]] to be superstrong and durable, except Superman. That's right; on Krypton, Superman was the TeamNormal!

* CatGirl: Catwoman, natch. She can see in the dark, has cat-like reflexes and the ability to jump really far, and can shoot out really long claws.

* InNameOnly: This trope is a deliberate unifying premise in the series. Unlike {{Elseworld}}s, which is a re-imagining of a DC character that usually retains most of the core elements, this series attaches the existing names to completely different characters with different powers, costumes, origins, appearances, and personalities. Usually, the only common element is that they're metahumans in a modern setting.
* JumpedAtTheCall: Catwoman is easily the most enthusiastic of the superheroes to fight crime
