* EverybodyHatesHades: Downplayed. Hades is presented as kind of a dick, but not outright evil because he doesn't seem to honestly understand how his actions affect others. It's suggested that no one can love him because he himself can't understand what love actually is. This may change after an encounter with Eros' guns (which serve the same purpose as his bow and arrows in the old days).

** In his new series, most people react to ComicBook/{{Aquaman}} as if they only knew him from the ''WesternAnimation/SuperFriends'', [[WhatKindOfLamePowerIsHeartAnyway What Kind Of Lame Power Is Talking To Fish, Anyway?]] version. This leads to him working so hard to prove that he is BadAss that it doesn't actually make any sense for him to have that reputation he's trying so hard to shed in the first place. This changes after ''ComicBook/ThroneOfAtlantis''; as mentioned below in the BewareTheSuperman example.

** The New Gods have become militant fascists, trying to use the Life Equation to brainwash people into fighting against Darkseid, with the Highfather becoming a colossal {{Jerkass}}.



** [[spoiler: [[ComicBook/CrisisOnInfiniteEarths The Anti-Monitor]]]], even more dangerous being, who made the Crime Syndicate to escape their world (Earth-3) and destroyed it. [[spoiler: He is going to kill Darkseid and is in league with his daughter]].
** [[spoiler: Brainiac]], easily number #3 on this list, his true form as giant artificial entity, capturing cities from different timelines and universes before their destruction. Vril Dox Brainiac guy is just one of his pawns.
** [[spoiler: Empty Hand]], the sinister entity that led the Gentry in their invasion of the Multiverse. Currently, it's just decided to wait. Probably qualifies as THE Biggest Bad.

** The Justice Society has suffered a major legacy implosion, with the all of the children and grandchildren wiped from existence and the original JSA members becoming young again. The divide between Earth 2 and the main DCU also has brought up a kind of OneSteveLimit, in that TheFlash and GreenLantern are the only superheroes with ongoing stories to have versions in both universes[[note]]Earth 2 also had versions of Batman, Superman, and Wonder Woman, but they get killed off in the prologue of the series[[/note]]. Every other superhero is editorially confined to either one continuity or the other. So, for example, ComicBook/TheSpectre, traditionally a ComicBook/JusticeSocietyOfAmerica character, is now in the main DC universe instead of Earth 2 with the rest of the rebooted Golden Age characters.
** Jaime Reyes is now the first Blue Beetle. Well, he isn't the first user of the Scarab, but the previous user was a ''Mayan astronomer'', wiping Dan Garrett and Ted Kord from the legacy--and while Dan's status is currently unknown, Ted has been confirmed to exist, at least.

* MythologyGag: Batwing's costume looks a lot like the imaginary African-American Batman (aka "Bat-Wings") in the seventies comic "The Batman Nobody Knows". Only less seventies.

In 1986, Creator/DCComics made comic book history by rebooting their entire continuity in ''ComicBook/CrisisOnInfiniteEarths''. Character histories were changed, merged in from other continuities, or even restarted from scratch. The ComicBook/PostCrisis DCUniverse would never be the same.

* KilledOffForReal: A rare case of this applying to real-world publications, rather than characters. In one of the most controversial aspects of the reboot, DC brass chose to cancel ''ComicBook/ActionComics'' and ''DetectiveComics'', their two longest-running titles, both of which were approaching their 1,000th issues and 75th anniversaries, supposedly to convince readers that they were serious about the reboot. Both titles returned with new No. 1's but this didn't console longtime fans looking forward to the millennial milestones.
