* BadassPreacher: Norman McCay, with touches of BadassPacifist. He never fires a shot or throws a single punch, but through the power of his sermons, he singlehandedly saves [[spoiler: the UN, and by extension the entire ''world''. From ''[[BewareTheSuperman Superman.]]'']]

Unusually for a graphic novel, ''Kingdom Come'' also has a full {{Novelization}} by Creator/ElliotSMaggin, which [[AdaptationExpansion expands slightly]] on the comic's events and is generally considered to be at least as good if not better than the highly beloved graphic novel itself.

** ''[[ComicBook/JusticeLeagueInternational Justice League: Generation Lost]]'', which had a major subplot having to do with the events of ''Kingdom Come'', actually ''did'' use it. In a reversal of this, Rorschach shows up twice in the bar scene... at one point talking to the character he's an {{Expy}} of, The Question.

** 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" for the term "damaged"; and "sira" (damaged) and "ulo" (head) should be a single compound word'')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.

** [[spoiler: TheVillagePeople]]Music/VillagePeople]]



** Several background characters are based on bands and musicians, including Music/{{Bjork}}, Music/TheBeatles, Music/TheMonkees, Music/TheVillagePeople, and King Marvel is visually very similar to an older Music/ElvisPresley. This is a recursive ShoutOut -- Elvis based his famous stage costume on Captain Marvel, Jr., his favorite superhero.
