** The Thanagarians' original reason for joining the Invasion was to capture Hawkman and Hawkwoman, rogue Thanagarians who had defected to Earth. The popularity of the [[{{Hawkman}} Hawkworld]] comic would lead to these characters being rebooted, and the previous Hawkman and Hawkwoman members of the Justice League being advance agents of the Invasion who remained loyal. Hawkworld came out literally months after the conclusion to Invasion!, essentially making the Thanagarians' involvement immediately incoherent.

Added DiffLines:

* RedSkiesCrossover: Some comics had no direct ties to the event beyond a single black and white panel with reversed coloration, signifying the moment of the gene bomb's detonation.

* EldritchAbomination: The Gil'Disphan were the Invasion's submariner force, and looked like tumors floating in bubbles.

* BaldOfEvil: Thanagarian men are bald fascists.

*** {{Metamorpho}} actually came back from the dead because of it. Notable not only in that it implied his powers were genetic rather than mystic, but also that the gene bomb could work on the dead.



* RubberForeheadAliens: Most of the alien races that weren't the Daxamites or Thangarians.

* HeroicSacrifice: One of the Daxamite observers for the alien alliance, who died of lead poisoning so he could reach a transmitter to tell his homeworld to throw in on Earth's side. (At the time, the Daxamite was the father of Lar Gand, a.k.a. [[ComicBook/LegionOfSuperHerioes Mon-El]]; this has probably been [[{{Retcon}} retconned]].)

** Some people actually ''gained'' powers (or had them altered) as a result of the meta-bomb, most notably [[ComicBook/{{Justice League|International}} manager Maxwell Lord. Several of the new members of Comicbook/DoomPatrol introduced during the Creator/GrantMorrison run were also said to have got their powers from the meta-bomb.

Added DiffLines:

* ActionBomb: Lex Luthor contributed by making robotic replicas of heroes that would get captured, and then explode while being studied.


Added DiffLines:

* EvilIsPetty: Part of what stopped the invasion was the various races sniping at each other, helped along by Deadman possessing some.
* FantasticCasteSystem: The Dominators, to their disadvantage. The scientist who invented the gene bomb was only told to study the meta gene because of his caste status. His subsequent torture for going outside what his caste was permitted to do was what allowed the heroes to convince him to make a cure.
