* AlternateContinuity: Whilst it aims to follow on from events depicted in the animated series, it also does differ from it in several key areas, making it clear that it is not strictly speaking the same universe as that depicted in the ''Franchise/DCAU''.

** 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.

** ''Justice League Beyond'' introduces a new [[spoiler:Zod]], the young son of [[spoiler:Jax-Ur, whom Brainiac rescued from the black hole we last saw him enter in ''Superman: The Animated Series'']]. He's a hero, however, and Superman argues that the name is common on Krypton, but it's obvious what the writer's intentions with the character are. Note that the comic clarifies that [[spoiler:the original General Zod]] did exist in this continuity (making this an example of LegacyCharacter and not just MythologyGag), despite his characteristics being subsumed by a CompositeCharacter in ''STAS''.

It's a long story.]]

* BackForTheDead[=/=]DroppedABridgeOnHim: [[spoiler:In the "Hush: Beyond" story arc, many characters from former Batman history and the show are killed off rather unceremoniously by the new Hush, who is targeting former Bat-rogues. Including former rogues of Bruce Wayne; Signalman and Calendar Man, and former rogues of Terry, like Shriek, Stalker, Mad Stan and even non-villainous characters like Armory/Jim Tate and his wife and step-son, Lorraine and Jared. In the case of Terry's rogues, their deaths ''aren't even shown'', and considering both he and Max were friends/schoolmates with Jared, he doesn't even bat an eyelid at the news of his and his family's deaths, but the writers did reveal Terry and Max did mourn Jared's death off-panel]].

* NiceJobBreakingItHero: By all accounts, the League and assorted allies appear to be doing fairly well against the Ouroboros in ''JL Beyond''...until Superman accidentally hits the Batmobile with his heat vision, causing Terry to crash and take out a Green Lantern barrier.

* SeriesContinuityError: In this comic, Dick Grayson explains that he left the crimefighting business due to being shot by the Joker, at a point in Batman's career where he hadn't worked with a partner for a long time. However, ''WesternAnimation/BatmanBeyondReturnOfTheJoker'' establishes that the Joker was killed by ''Robin,'' and Batman was clearly working with both Robin and Batgirl at that point, while Barbara Gordon claimed that Nightwing had simply moved to another city by then. Furthermore, given the context of Barbara telling Terry all about the Joker's death, it would have been ''extraordinarily'' remiss of her not to talk about Dick getting shot by the long-dead villain they were trying to identify. The writer himself admit he mess up and acknowledged it as a plot hole.

** [[spoiler: In the JLU episode "Epilogue," Stalker is shown, alive and well, in a flashback that takes place during Terry's mid-twenties. The episode was produced before the comic where Stalker was killed, but the episode takes place years afterwards. Assuming the comic is sticking to the animated canon, this implies that Stalker likewise survived his encounter with Hush!Grayson. Which begs the question, did he manage to actually kill anyone?]]
