* ThouShaltNotKill: Most of the team members have this policy on an individual level, but it isn't a rule for the team. The modern Franchise/WonderWoman doesn't adhere to it, and the Green Lanterns have recently been permitted to use deadly force by their own superiors. Franchise/{{Superman}} is one of the strictest about adhering to this personally, but as he's explained, he has no right to hold ''other'' heroes to the same standard.

* ChuckCunninghamSyndrome: In Gardner Fox's stories, the Martian Manhunter was utilized as a stand-in for Superman due to Mort Weisinger insisting that the latter have limited use. After this limitation was appealed, Fox had gradually less use of J'onn. It didn't help that under Fox, J'onn's martian powers were severely underutilized (only being used nine times throughout Fox's reign as ''JLA'' writer). J'onn was finally dropped from the series when his comic was cancelled.

* DemotedToExtra: In the early adventures, Superman and Batman had limited roles due to Mort Weisinger and Jack Schiff, the editors of their respective comics at the time, not wanting to risk overexposure of the characters. In early 1962, when circulation of the ''JLA'' comic was beginning to die down, ''JLA'' editor Julius Schwartz and DC publisher Jack Liebowitz agreed that they need to give both characters more involving roles, on the basis that they belong to DC Comics and ''not'' Weisinger and Schiff.

* PhantomZone: Creator/GrantMorrison's ''JLA'' introduces the Still Zone, where the League battle the White Martians and, later, Prometheus. According to these stories, the Still Zone (or, as Prometheus call it, the Ghost Zone), which the White Martians use in place of {{Hyperspace}}, is both the Phantom Zone and (according to the angel Zauriel) Limbo...and probably also the Stasis Zone that was at the time standing in for the Phantom Zone in [[ComicBook/{{Legion of Super-Heroes}} M'Onel's]] origin and the Buffer Zone that [[IntangibleMan Bgzltians phase into]]. A more recent story adds [[TimeMaster Epoch's]] "timeless void" and ComicBook/DCOneMillion's "tesseract space" to the list. And now, ''ComicBook/TheMultiversity'' (Morrison's latest comic book epic) reveals that the Phantom Zone is actually TheUnderworld.

** While we are on the subject of Justice League, the fact that movies starring male superheroes are being greenlit left and right, and Wonder Woman's own film used to be in DevelopmentHell, has not gone unnoticed until Warner Bros announced that her solo film will be released on 2017 before the Justice League movie. Considering the [[SarcasmMode runaway success]] of ''Film/{{Supergirl}}'', ''Film/BarbWire'', and ''Film/{{Catwoman}}'', it isn't exactly surprising. But that in itself is [[DoubleStandard a problem]] - a superhero movie that bombs is just that film's failure, but a superheroine movie that bombs makes movie execs fearful of ever making another one because they think that [[InsaneTrollLogic obviously superheroine movies don't make as much money]].

In the 80's, DC's editorial team noticed that they were being outsold by the Teen Titans and the ComicBook/XMen, more action-oriented, character-driven teams. So, [[ReTool suddenly]], Aquaman gave a big speech about how the team couldn't depend on heroes who were too busy to show up all the time, and reformed the team with a bunch of second-stringers and a few new characters. They operated out of a warehouse in Detroit (for which they got the FanNickname "Justice League Detroit"). For this reason they were a little ineffectual during ''ComicBook/CrisisOnInfiniteEarths''.
