* IgnoredEpiphany: Alexander Luthor's plan required to keep Kal-L in the dark for as long as possible. It never crossed his mind that if he needed to hide his real intentions from Earth-Two ''Superman'', then maybe he is not what one would call a hero.

* DeconReconSwitch: At the beginning of the story, Batman is at his most paranoid, Wonder Woman is dealing with the effects of her killing Max Lord, and Superman is dealing with the fact that he apparently inspires no one anymore. Through the story, Batman learns to trust his allies again (signified by accepting Hal Jordan's help on Brother Eye to escape after spending the last year going out of his way to distrust the former Parallax). Wonder Woman decides to readopt ThouShallNotKill (by throwing her sword down and convincing Batman not to kill Alex Luthor, and Superman rediscovers his inspiring qualities (noted when he gives Prime a KirkSummation about how un-Superman the kid is despite all his powers, costume, and name.) At the very end, all three take a break from superhero work to rediscover themselves. Batman in particular retraces his steps in his training but brings his kids along with him.

* BreakingTheFourthWall: Alexander Luthor plans on taking the "best" Earths and mixing them all together. This includes Earth Prime, ''our'' Earth, which he has trouble finding. "Where...are...''you''!" He says, staring directly out at the reader as his hands reach out from the page, ready to snatch the reader's own world...

* ParentalFavouritism: Dick Grayson is shown to be Batman's favourite son ''twice''. First, when Bruce asks his ArmorPiercingQuestion (see above) and second when Brother Eye specifically invokes this. And Bruce ''programmed Brother Eye!''

* ArmorPiercingQuestion: "What about Dick Grayson?" And with that, Kal-L insistence that none of the modern heroes are worth protecting falls apart.

to:

* AntiVillain: Black Adam starts the series as one of the inner circle of the Secret Society, participating in the massacre against the Freedom Fighters. Then, he's betrayed and hooked into the Multiversal machine for his connection to Earth-S. When, he's freed, he helps the superheroes... by going on a killing rampage against the Secret Society, killing both Psycho Pirate and Amazo. When Gypsy asks if he's on the heroes' side now, Zatanna responds he's pretty much on his own side.

* BroughtDownToNormal: Happens to Superman and Superboy-Prime at the end of the story.

to:

* BroughtDownToNormal: Happens to Superman both Supermen and Superboy-Prime at the end of the story.


Added DiffLines:

* HeelRealization: Kal-L has this in stages, ending when he realizes [[spoiler: that the Superboy he condemned was a hero willing to die for others while the Superboy he supported became a murdering psycho]].


Added DiffLines:

* {{Hypocrite}}: A huge part of both Alex Luthor and Superboy-Prime is that, while both chide the post-Crisis heroes for being DarkerAndEdgier, both are murdering nutjobs that are prepared to kill scores of people in their search for the "perfect" Earth.

Added DiffLines:

** Inverted with the Joker which is more "''Let me join'' or die."


Added DiffLines:

--> ''Alexander Luthor starts grabbing at the reader''


Added DiffLines:

** Although, a large percentage of why they were cracking apart in the first place (Max Lord's shenanigans and the Brother Eye going rogue) was his fault to begin with.


Added DiffLines:

* PrecisionFStrike: When the villains decide they are going to devastate Metropolis, Superman replies, "Like Hell." A usually mild example but given Superman's status as a boy scout, it fits.

* SlasherSmile: The last image of the book is [[spoiler: Superboy-Prime doing this right after carved a haphazard Superman logo on his bare chest]].



* TooDumbToLive: [[spoiler:The Joker comes to find out that BigBad Alexander Luthor didn't let him in because of his unpredictability. Of all the super villains Alex was gathering, he didn't let the Joker in. The Joker is understandably pissed. Jump to the final issue, with Alex planning to rebuild his power and his power base, only to be ambushed by the Joker and ComicBook/LexLuthor. And as Alex is begging for mercy, Lex tells him flat out his one big mistake wasn't attacking Superman or killing Superboy or any of that. It was "[[http://1.bp.blogspot.com/_BlsLZY4Qci8/TCuYKMrV97I/AAAAAAAAA5I/a0bSS3zasSA/s1600/InfiniteCrisis7.jpg not letting the Joker play]]."]]
