The ComicBook/CrisisOnInfiniteEarths left the JSA relatively untouched, but [[ExecutiveMeddling DC Editorial wanted]] to get rid of the JSA. So, in the best tradition of the AssPull: "Suddenly, the JSA were attacked by a spell [[StupidJetpackHitler cast by Hitler]] in the last days of UsefulNotes/WorldWarII, which summoned the [[TheLegionsOfHell demons of Ragnarok]] to [[TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt destroy the world]]. The JSA had no choice but to create a [[TimeyWimeyBall hole in time and space]], and all go [[PutOnABus through the hole]] to fight demons." The JSA were caught up in a time loop fighting demons from 1986 to 1992, when they were released during the ''Armageddon: Inferno'' crossover. They had a flashback miniseries in 1991 and a short series in 1992 that was cancelled even before its first issue by more ExecutiveMeddling.

In the ComicBook/{{New 52}}, many of the major Golden Age characters were rebooted and re-imagined, with most once again operating on Earth-2, as they did pre-Crisis, and some operating on Earth-0, the DCU's current main Earth. However, there was no official team operating under the JSA title until Geoff Johns' ''[[ComicBook/DCRebirth DC Universe: Rebirth]]'' revealed there had once been a Justice Society on Earth-0, a covert team of mystery men who helped win World War II, but they'd been forgotten by history, lost to time, and needed to be brought back.

* TheLoad: The Golden Age ComicBook/RedTornado was part this, with a heaping dollop of comic relief. She was tough enough to at least hold her own in a fight against non-super-powered thugs, though.

* FanService: Power Girl's huge bustline makes her a recurring subject of "focus on bustline while she's flying towards us" angled shots, and she often suffers ClothingDamage. Unusually, however, the entire rest of the female cast tends to be either modestly-endowed (the three teenage characters) and/or full-clothed without even the form-fitting wardrobe normal for comics (Cyclone and Liberty Belle).

Kendra tends to get lots of ass shots and rocks a BareYourMidriff outfit and pants with a plunging waistline.

Added DiffLines:

* SequelSeries: ''Justice Society of America'' is basically just an excuse for Johns to give a time skip and bring some new blood to the team. You can basically read it as part of ''JSA'' if you wanted to, given how ''JSA'' ended.

The comic book ''All-Star Comics'', in 1940, was introduced as a standard anthology title featuring characters from other anthologies. However in the third issue (Winter, 1940), writer Gardner Fox introduced the Justice Society of America, teaming up the characters. Because it was mostly for less-used characters, any character who got his own series would have minimal appearances, so [[Franchise/TheFlash Flash]] and Franchise/GreenLantern left when they got solo comics, Franchise/{{Superman}} and Franchise/{{Batman}} rarely appeared, and Franchise/WonderWoman was the JSA's [[StayInTheKitchen secretary]] and didn't go on missions until late in the Golden Age ''All-Star'' run. The team had a roster that changed from time to time, with characters leaving the team and others replacing them, until finally the lineup stabilized for the last two years of the book's run. The comic was canceled with issue #57 (February-March, 1951) at the end of UsefulNotes/TheGoldenAgeOfComicBooks, with ''All-Star Western'' continuing the numbering.

* {{Foreshadowing}}: During a time-travel jaunt, Power Girl runs afoul of an anomaly in time, one Rip Hunter hadn't seen coming. One centred on [[ComicBook/CrisisOnInfiniteEarths Nineteen Eighty-Five]]. In the following storyline, Kara's true Kryptonian nature starts violently reasserting itself, leading to her own identity crisis at the beginning of ''ComicBook/InfiniteCrisis''.


Added DiffLines:

* OffWithHisHead: How Gog is defeated, with the extra measure of flying his head all the way to the Source Wall.


Added DiffLines:

* PoliticallyCorrectHistory: Averted in a storyline where the JSA go back to the fifties. Michael Holt, a black man, runs into serious issues just for being black, and that's before he runs into some of the KKK by accident.

** It also happens to the villains: Brain Wave never uses his image-projecting power after his first appearance and later has to use SuperScience to achieve the same things, and the Wizard's magic is nowhere in evidence in his two subsequent appearances leading the Injustice Society.

* BadassNormal: This role is filled by Mister Terrific, the third-smartest man in the world (and therefore smart enough to know that "Working Out = Good"), Hawkman (who graduated to Franchise/ConanTheBarbarian with wings), and Wildcat, advertised as the man who [[BadAss taught self-defense classes to the JLA]].
