** Marvel Comics's "Whu-huh?!", a more comical version of their "What If...?" line. Apparently, the New Universe was created when Galactus ate a bad planet and promptly shat it out.

** Averted with ''New Universe''. Two of the people given powers by the White Event were UsefulNotes/RonaldReagan and Ayatollah Khomeini. Several other real celebrities appear (Music/{{Madonna}} performs at a "Pitt Aid" charity concert) or are mentioned (John Tensen tells someone that Justice is his actual first name, "like Judge Reinhold"; a character in a ''Nightmask'' story notes that someone is "deader than The Music/BeeGees' career!").

* MythologyGag: A number of characters large and small from the main Marvel universe are shown to have counterparts in ''newuniversal''. To name a couple, a General Thaddeus Ross goes after the first confirmed superhuman sighting with GeneralRipper tendencies that equal the main universe version going after [[{{Comicbook/IncredibleHulk}} Hulk]]. One of the NYPD officers looking into another superhuman incident is named Manolis. NYPD Lieutenant Nick Manolis was a significant character in ''[[{{Comicbook/DaredevilBornAgain}} Daredevil: Born Again]]''.

* GenreSavvy: Demonstrated by a [[JohnByrne comic book writer]] [[SelfInsertFic attending a convention]] along with Star Brand (who was at the time attempting to be a masked hero in the traditional mold). The writer methodically dismantled all the comic book tropes that Connell was depending on to demonstrate why comic book-style heroes were unrealistic and unworkable. In particular, he showed just how much identifying information he could get from physically seeing the cowled Star Brand (height, build, eye color, skin color, and the approximate size and shape of Connell's nose, among other details), which he pointed out could then be used to significantly narrow down a search of, say, driver's license records.

** Said comic book writer was JohnByrne, [[CreatorCameo who wrote that story]] and the title's final story-arc.

** Even after the title's finale it continued in a comic book of ''another company'': In the DCComics mini [[ComicBook/LegendsDC Legends]], drawn by Byrne, Guy Gardner beats a villain named Sunspot, who is a transparent {{Expy}} of Star Brand. Guy doesn't even break a sweat, and Sunspot ends the fight by shooting himself in the foot while ranting about why the New Universes he tries to create keep exploding.
* TeleportersAndTransporters[=/=]ThinkingUpPortals: Sedara Bakut, a character from later issues of ''Psi-Force'', can create door-like portals in space.

** The ''Newuniversal'' version as well. In that version, the ''Star Brand'' is a planetary defense system, meaning if Ken got upset he could do a tremendous amount of damage.


Added DiffLines:

** Applies to all the superpowers in ''Newuniversal'', with each character (Star Brand, Justice, Nightmask and Cipher) getting a unique glyph.


Added DiffLines:

** In ''Newuniversal'', the Nightmask can use the superflow to travel across vast distances easily.


Added DiffLines:

* TranshumanTreachery: A major topic of ''Newuniversal'', where that universes' version of Phil Voight thinks this applies instantly, and will take any method necessary to avert it, either not noticing or not caring that the people he's hunting are all too human. For added irony, the person he outlining this to is one of those post-humans.
