* OneSteveLimit: Subverted in ''ComicBook/Supergirl'' #59, when Buzz is looking for Linda and calling out her name, only to be answered by Linda Petrullo, a young wooman trapped in an overturned car. Buzz is content to leave her there, saying, "I don't care if you're ''Creator/LindaHamilton'', you're not the Linda ''I'm'' looking for."

* IllNeverTellYouWhatImTellingYou: ''ComicBook/{{Impulse}}'' #77 opens with this from the narrator:
-->"Okay, let's say, just for the sake of argument, that you ''haven't'' already read the first part of this star-spanning saga in the pages of ''ComicBook/YoungJustice'' #36 (still on sale!)...\\
And let's say that you ''don't'' know that the entire Young Justice gang has crash-landed on the volatile and unforgiving surface of Apokolips, home of the dark god Darkseid and about a million other unpleasant people...\\
And let's just assume that you don't know that, following the crash, Superboy and Robin had a fight over priorities and the team split up: Robin's team to stay with the downed ship and effect repairs...\\
... Superboy's team striking out across the harsh terrain in search of the fallen hero Steel, whose seemingly lifeless body was seen being spirited away by the grim herald of death, the Black Racer!\\
Well, if you don't know all that, ''we're'' not gonna tell ya.\\
Man, we'd hate to be you...

* ScrapbookStory: The narration of each story is actually a speech by a U.S. president either before, during or after a major conflict. It's a very nice effect.

Franchise/{{Superman}}, being the primary character of the event, is forced to set aside his enmity against then-President ComicBook/LexLuthor, General Zod (who ruled an Eastern European nation) and even Doomsday and ''{{ComicBook/Darkseid}}'' in order to combat this cosmic threat. Superman's greatest challenge wasn't simply physical (Each Imperex "Probe" was 8 feet tall, stronger than Superman, invulnerable, and if it ''did'' have its armor pierced, it would detonate with the force of an atomic bomb), but emotional. Superman could only watch as allies and family became wounded (Half the JusticeLeagueOfAmerica), were killed (WonderWoman's mother, {{Steel}}, ComicBook/{{Aquaman}}, many others), went missing (Superman's parents both presumed dead during the arc), and even stood by helplessly as ComicBook/LoisLane went sobbing into ''Luthor's'' arms when her father died in a kamikaze blitz while defending the White House.

The crap ''really'' hits the fan when Imperiex is defeated (wait for it)... and {{ComicBook/Brainiac}} appears, absorbs Imperiex's immortal essence, becoming a PhysicalGod, and sets upon ''absorbing'' the entire universe (instead of destroying it). Turns out Brainiac had orchestrated the ''entire'' scenario (including using Lex Luthor's daughter to guide him into doing everything that had to be done to destroy Imperiex), and with all the universe's defenders dead, defeated or at the very least severely weakened, nothing would be able to stop him...

* NotTooDeadToSaveTheDay: Superman has gone all super-saijin (by super-soaking himself in yellow sun radiation) and is about to obliterate Brainiac by destroying War World's "heart"... when he sees the essence of Imperiex floating in Brainiac's veins! So if he destroys Brainiac, Imperiex is free and will destroy the universe anyway! This causes Superman to shake off his homicidal rage and come up with a plan to dispose of ''both'' immortal threats without breaking his code against killing. Also a slightly humorous example when Young Justice is saved by an ''army'' of Lobo clones (each one came from a drop of Lobo's blood due to his over-powered regenerative abilities)
