* HerosEvilPredecessor: * One of Doctor Jeroen Thornedike's predecessors, known only as the Renegade Doctor, was an OmnicidalManiac. After Jeroen suffered a heroin overdose during a crisis, the Authority was forced to restore his predecessor's powers in order to fix the crisis. Luckily for them, in the intervening years, the Garden of Ancestral Memory had added "empathy with all living things" to the list of powers that came with the job, which overwhelmed the Renegade Doctor, distracting him long enough for the Authority to finally kill him.

* {{Bowdlerize}}: The series got hot hard with this during Mark Millar's run. Certain panels that depicted extreme violence or suggestive material had to be altered or completely redrawn, in order to meet the publisher's discretion guidelines. Here are some of the more infamous examples:

* {{Bowdlerize}}: MonumentalDamage: The series got hot hard with really ''loves'' this during Mark Millar's run. Certain trope.

** The very first issue in which the Authority lays siege to Jakarta has all references to the name of the country removed. Instead it is simply identified as "somewhere in Southeast Asia". Interestingly the depiction of Jakarta's President Habibe is left intact. Presumably because the publisher believed that the readers wouldn't recognize him anyway.

* {{Jobber}}: There was a period where the Authority didn't have their own ongoing series, yet were still supposed to be the most powerful superhero team of their Earth. This led to the team only being used so that they could be jerks to the protagonists of other series, then swatted down to show off how cool those other heroes were. Examples include ''Stormwatch: Team Achilles'', and Creator/GailSimone's ''{{Gen13}}'' (where they substitute "[[HeelRealization realize what jerks they're being]]" for "swatted down"). Notably ''not'' the case in ''[[ComicBook/CaptainAtom Captain Atom: Armageddon]]'', where they were portrayed as the {{Badass}}es they are... it's just they were up against [[AlwaysSomeoneBetter a bigger Badass than they were]].

** PlotTumor - There was a two-page joke scene of Swift sleeping with ''{{Gen13}}'''s Grunge in "The Nativity." Later, Adam Warren escalated it into an ongoing affair, mostly because of the effect of the reveal on Grunge's [[TheWoobie Woobie]] girlfriend.
