* TheOmniscientCouncilOfVagueness: The Quintessence, consisting of The Phantom Stranger, Odin, Zeus, Ganthet, Shazam and The Spectre. The Spectre bristles at their avowed unwillingness to meddle in the affairs of mortals when Shazam begs the others to help Captain Marvel, accusing them of just being too scared to interfere and just have these meetups to tell each other "no".

* BeCarefulWhatYouWishFor: The current status quo came about partly because regular civilians rejected the traditional heroes, [[ThouShaltNotKill who wouldn't kill]] their enemies no matter what, and demanded heroes who would kill. They got what they wanted, and millions died for it.

Added DiffLines:

* LeaveMeAlone: Uttered by the Parasite who attempts to surrender from Magog and his Justice Battalion. But as the Justice Battalion is made up of BloodKnight NinetiesAntiHeroes, his cries for mercy are ignored, which kick-starts the plot of the story as he lashes out in fear, ripping through Captain Atom's suit, nuking the American Midwest. One reporter even points out that Magog could have averted tragedy if he had just listened to Parasite.

** The scene where [[spoiler:Superman attempts to destroy the UN building and kill everyone inside]] results in this due to the multinational nature of the organization. For example, the Filipino delegate says "PAPATAYIN NIYA TAYO ULO!". The intent appears to be "He's going to collapse the roof!". What it actually translates as is "He's going to kill us! Heads!"
** The full quote is ''"Siva ulo! Nandiyan na ang siva ulo! Papatayin niya tayo ulo!"'' literally translates to "Damaged Head! (''i.e. "Insane" but it should be "sira" instead of "siva"'')There is already the damaged head! He's going to kill us! Heads!" The authorial intent apparently is closer to "There is (or 'here comes') (the face of) death! He has death in his head (or "on his mind")!", but that requires ''much more longer'' sentences for a correct translation.

He has death in his head (or "on his mind")!", but that requires ''much more longer'' sentences for a correct translation.

* CentralTheme: The loss of humanity through [[UtopiaJustifyTheMeans justifying your actions]], whether it be taking a life or swinging around your power to get people in line. All the classic silver age heroes had lost their connection to the very people they swore to protect, Superman retired to his Fortress of Solitude, Wonder Woman lost her royal title because she spent more time as a warrior than ambassador of peace, Flash existed in constant motion unable to interact with anyone, Green Lantern remained in a watchtower construct in orbit over Earth and Batman policed Gotham via drones. As such the new generation, who idolized the classic heroes, were left without guidance and fought each other as much as they fought supervillains.

* ValuesDissonance: [invoked] Used in-story. It's problems with values dissonance that cause Superman to retire in the first place because he cannot reconcile his values with those of the younger generation of heroes and, more importantly, the public that supports them.
