* DependingOnTheWriter: A result of BroadStrokes being applied (as noted in the appropriate entry) when the comic series was first picked up. While none of the comics elements have been explicitly retconned out, ''2.0'' is written by Kyle Higgins, an avowed fan of ''BatmanTheAnimatedSeries'' and the [=DCAU=], who's talked in interviews about how he tries to hear the voices of Creator/KevinConroy, Creator/WillFriedle, Stockard Channing, and Loren Lester when he writes the characters' dialogue. Since Higgins took over writing, the series is much more upfront about its ties to the animated 'verse specifically, featuring flashbacks to Dick Grayson as Robin drawn to emulate the old [=BTAS=] style, and connecting events in the storyline by introducing new plot elements in the past that have severe ramifications in the present. As a result, ''2.0'' reads and feels much more like a part of the [=DCAU=] canon, which contrasts sharply with the preceeding ''Beyond'' run that tried to blend both canons together but couldn't do it smoothly.

** Another point is Wonder Woman. When the JLU first appeared in the animated series episode ''The Call'' she was not among the members featured. Thus, as part of the ''Justice League Beyond'' storyline, they answer that "why" is "because she chose to stay in the AlternateUniverse of the Justice Lords over 40 years ago". The problem with this angle is, that Wonder Woman ''was'' name checked as an active superhero during the ''Beyond'' era at least twice. Thus the real answer for why she wasn't seen? The much more mundane, "she was offscreen". This is moreso notable in that ''[[WesternAnimation/StaticShock Static]]'' is also confirmed to be a JLU member in the ''Beyond'' era, and he also wasn't in ''The Call'', and another instance even seems to confirm Martian Manhunter, making three JLU members who didn't appear in ''The Call'' but only one whose apparent absence was made into a huge plot point.

** Volume five introduces a new Vigilante, actually [[spoiler:Jake Chill, the great grand-nephew of the infamous Joe Chill]], although he doesn't really have any relation to the cowboy superhero--his costume is a modified version of the futuristic security guard armor he already owned, and the name is an AppropriatedAppellation taken from when Batman angrily calls him... well, a vigilante.
