** It also exposes that several heroes could be capably crippled just by the casual reveal of their secret identities, a concept that'd be revisited in ForeverEvil. No explanation why {{Brainiac}} doesn't begin his invasion with "by the way, Clark Kent's Superman, here's the footage to prove it."



* Maxwell Lord is seen attending Sue's funeral. Seeing such a good person like Sue die so horribly further dented his already dwindling faith in superheroes, hence his full FaceHeelTurn in ''Countdown to ComicBook/InfiniteCrisis''.

** Confirmed by WordOfGod.
* The storyline establishes early on that Zatanna and the league had been mindwiping people for a while before they got to Dr. Light. The series also establishes that other villains are as bad or worse than Light -- Monocle and Phobia, for instance, are implied to abduct, torture, and murder people as part of their foreplay, whereas Light's rape of Sue was due to a target of convenience. Zatanna removed one rapist from the world, and never attempted to deal with the others.
** Bear in mind that Sue was also unique among those targeted during the event in that Sue and Ralph lived very public lives, and Ralph had no secret identity. Sue was raped in the Justice League HQ, but in the long run, she wasn't safer than she was before Light's lobotomy. Any villain targeting the League could go after her.
** Light's crippling anxieties afterward led him to murder children just to prove he wasn't afraid of them anymore. In contrast, simply using their security footage and sending Light to trial for his crime would have probably had him locked up the rest of his life instead of getting written off as an [[SuicideSquad expendable asset.]]

*** Yes, since there needed to be two calls one of which was placed AFTER Sue's death.

* Sue's rape canonically happens in the middle of her career in comicdom, and she shows no signs of emotional or physical trauma outside this series. This series which, by the way, has Zatanna inflicting LaserGuidedAmnesia on villains and Batman for far less pure motives than trying to spare a friend's pain.

** They did, but would anyone blink at someone from The Atom's house calling someone at Elongated Man's house? Especially if there's a future baby shower?

to:

* They make a big deal about how organized the heroes have become regarding deaths within their circle since Superman's death and have everyone converge on the crime scene and use their specialties to look for clues. Batman, the "World's Greatest Detective" got there before anyone else and yet no one could tell the difference between a chemical fire and a laser. Also, nobody did the most basic piece of investigation and checked the phone records.

** In fairness, Zoom isn't just evil, he's also a {{Jerkass}} that nobody particularly likes.

* During Jean's faked assassination, the art shows her being tied up by an unseen assailant's hands, but it's later revealed that she did it to herself... except there's no way she could have contorted herself into the positions seen in the pictures.
