* KeepCirculatingTheTapes: Discussed InUniverse. In ''With a Vengeance'' [[spoiler: Joker demands to know why Superman and Batman don't remember the events of the ''ComicBook/EmperorJoker'' crossover from several years earlier. Mxyzptlk explains that he's blocking everyone's memories -- then also adds that the issues haven't been collected yet. Ironically -- and probably because of fan demand -- that arc was collected shortly afterwards.]]
* KickTheDog: In "The Supergirl from Krypton", Superman blames Batman and Wonder Woman for Kara getting kidnapped by Darkseid when she should have remained in Metropolis with him. Wonder Woman reminds them her sisters nearly sacrificed herself to protect her. Then Superman said if it was Jason Todd or Donna Troy, they wouldn't even be arguing about this. Batman tells him Kara isn't dead. The three of them got quiet. Superman realized he crossed the line mentioning Jason and Donna. Near the end of the story arc, he apologizes for it.
** Ironically, a year later both Jason and Donna [[DeathIsCheap came back]].

''Franchise/{{Superman}}[=/=]Franchise/{{Batman}}'' was a monthly series published by Creator/DCComics featuring team-ups of the so-called "World's Finest Duo". The series explored the relationship between the two heroes, featuring a unique dual-narrator approach where both Superman and Batman simultaneously narrated the story with their thoughts. The series is also notable for restoring Superman and Batman to being good friends (though not to pre-Crisis levels), since JohnByrne's ''ComicBook/TheManOfSteel'' series initially rebooted the two as not getting along due to their contrasting ideals, although they still respected each other.

Added DiffLines:

* ReverseCerebusSyndrome: The first two arcs were setting the book up to be a fairly serious, event-heavy series, featuring pivotal events like the ousting of Luthor and the reintroduction of Supergirl. After that point, the series began to embrace its Silver Age roots, moving into one-and-done stories with crazy concepts and high-concept adventures largely confined to itself.
