[[folder: Katar, Chay-Ara, and Bashari in "Ancient History"?]]
* Are we supposed to be happy for Chay-Ara and Bashari's relationship? What's the lesson here? Spend time with your wife, or she will have an affair with another man? Katar didn't do anything bad, he was just a busy man. Bashari slept with his BEST FRIEND's wife. Would you root for a lonely wife for having an affair on a workaholic husband with his best friend?

** Waller was trying to recreate Batman in all ways, and being ''extremely'' GenreSavvy about it. Bruce Wayne's phenotype clearly helped; she knew there was nothing in his genes ''preventing'' the physical development of Batman, and what was there worked well for a strong, agile, durable man. Also, remember that Bruce has a habit of taking in youngsters whose parents are killed right in front of them, ''and'' Terry's father worked for Wayne-Powers, which gives him that connection. Waller may have [[BatmanGambit expected/intended for Wayne to take on Terry as a ward]], as he did for Tim and Dick before, and let it run its natural course. If history has shown us anything in comics, it's that if you are a young man in the Wayne household for any stretch of time, you ''will'' accidentally find the Batcave and find yourself wearing a super suit in short order.

*** ^The above was actually confirmed in-universe; Waller explicitly states that she was looking for a couple that fit the psychological profile of Thomas and Martha Wayne. Remember, Waller was being ''very'' GenreSavvy, and had been around Cadmus enough to take psychology into account.

* For some odd reason, Luthor's face is hidden in "Legends" even though he appeared episodes before this one. The way they hid his face suggest this was first appearance in the Justice League cartoon.

* You're not thinking about it enough. First, Luthor is completely obsessed with regaining Brainiac, he doesn't care about conquering the Earth or destroying the League anymore, everything the Legion of Doom is doing is so he can benefit and further that goal. Second, keeping low profile was netting them a great deal of cash which Lex was using to fund his operations (see the first point). Third, the constant fights were taking their tolls on the female League members, leaving them injured and weakened with nobody knowing why. Black Canary, the best fighter in the league was worn out to the point where a pick pocket was able to out fight her. If this had continued the villains would have been able to take advantage of it as every female hero would have been too weak to fight back and casualties would have eventually resulted. In conclusion: they're playing a long game with great benefit instead of blowing it all on a big power play that would have been doomed to fail. If Huntress hadn't had a rivalry with Black Canary going the villains wouldn't have been caught anytime soon,

** Martians having mental defenses against other Martians could also be the reason why Lord J'onn was the one sent to lure the League in with the "dimensional collapse" story, rather than one of the others -- if the story had been true, Lord Green Lantern (most familiar of the group with wide-ranging "cosmic" matters) or Lord Batman ({{the smart guy}} of the group) would seem more logical choices.

** The issue is Green Lantern's ability to ''activate and control'' the power of the ring. That can be disrupted (as it was in "Hearts and Minds"), leaving him unable to use the ring. After Lord Green Lantern got zapped, he tried to use the ring and produced some random flickers of green light, suggesting that there's still some power there but he can't do anything useful with it.
