* EvilStoleMyFaith: One of the story beats in WarrenEllis's run, which carried over into ''ComicBook/TheAuthority'' a few years later, was that God does not exist. The Doctor mentions it offhandedly in Ellis's final arc, and earlier, a "villain" called the Eidolon had come back from beyond the grave to try to convince people to make the most of their lives.

As of issue 19, after the first try proved to not be as successful as DC had hoped, it got [[ContinuityReboot re-rebooted]], with writer Jim Starlin taking things back to something more similar to how they were in Wildstorm, complete with original logo. Previous stories were largely erased, Apollo and ComicBook/{{Midnighter}} went back to their old costumes, the Bleed was re-introduced, going back to Skywatch as their base of operations, introducing more classic Stormwatch characters like Hellstrike and Fuji. Though some elements of Cornell's set up remained, such as the Shadow Lords, it is pretty much a complete fresh start. The change resulted in a BrokenBase. Fans of the first 18 issues were NOT pleased with the change, due to it erasing events from {{continuity}} and heading in a whole new direction, while fans of the Wildstorm incarnation mostly rejoiced. Since the first storyline is "Something's happened to Stormwatch history; we need to SetRightWhatOnceWentWrong", it remains to be seen how permanent Starlin intends the changes to be (especially given that the new set up contradicts ''Demon Knights'' and ''All-Star Western'''s "19th Century Stormwatch".) Unfortunately, the re-reboot didn't succeed in winning new readers, and DC cancelled the Stormwatch series, but not before the very last issue re-re-rebooted Stormwatch ''back'' to the #1-18 continuity.

Ellis' run on the title introduced several memorable characters, such as the retired and cynical Jenny Sparks and urban empath Jack Hawksmoor. Ellis also didn't shy away from both political commentary (Stormwatch having to fight a corrupt and hostile U.S. goverment on multiple occasions) and commentary on the genre of comics as a whole (the history of Jenny Sparks). It also had the main leader of Stormwatch, Henry Bendix, reveal himself as a manipulative sociopath before he's forced to leave the organization. In 1997, most of Stormwatch was [[DroppedABridgeOnHim killed offscreen]] or PutOnABus in the IntercontinuityCrossover ''ComicBook/{{WildCATs}}[=/=]Franchise/{{Alien}}s'' when the title was cancelled, and Ellis turned the surviving black ops unit 'Stormwatch Black' into the nucleus of ''ComicBook/TheAuthority''.

** OvershadowedByAwesome: StormwatchPHD makes it clear that the security teams and Stormforce consist of some of the world's best special forces agents and soldiers. They just tend to be horrendously outgunned by the rogue metahumans Stormwatch was created to deal with.

The third, going back to simply ''Stormwatch'' again, is by Creator/PaulCornell and incorporates the team into Franchise/TheDCU as part of DC's line-wide relaunch in 2011 (the "{{New 52}}" or the "[[FanNickname DCnU]]"). Stormwatch is a covert organization of superhumans that has been protecting the Earth from within the shadows for centuries, and they regard themselves as the "professionals" compared to Franchise/{{Superman}} and the new wave of "superheroes" he inspired. The ComicBook/MartianManhunter was a member of Stormwatch this time around, after an offscreen period serving with the [[JusticeLeagueOfAmerica Justice League]] that ended badly. He summed up the difference between the groups by saying that when he's with the League he's [[TheCape a hero]], and when he's with Stormwatch he's [[ShootTheDog a soldier]].
