* Starfighter's story. The story has a slight ominous tone, as the elderly hero is losing connection to the source of his power. But it's revealed that it's simply because the power believes he has earned a peaceful retirement, and it has found five suitable successors to him, including his daughter. The last pages show Starfighter simply relaxing on his palace's balcony, watching his wife fly, drinking a beer, and writing.

** It's worth noticing that "The Nearness of You" is Kurt Busiek's own favorite, because [[WordOfGod it's the one story idea that looked just as good as a finished comic as it did in his head]].

* Issue 16. Especially the part where Starbright manages to convince his main enemy, Simon Says, into reforming, by sheer dint of who he was: richest kid in town and the high-school quarterback, the sort of person Simon hated, was in fact the super-hero who never stopped believing Simon could have been so much more. And then, when he dies in a HeroicSacrifice, it's enough to convince Simon not only to give up super-villainly, but become the next Starbright [[spoiler:herself]].

* At the conclusion of Winged Victory's arc in issue 10 of the ''Creator/VertigoComics'' series, W.V., Samaritan, and the Confessor were able to locate [[spoiler: Karnazon, the villain behind her FrameUp]] through Joey Lacroix. Joey was a young boy who ran away from an abusive home and sought refuge in Samothrace, the main headquarters for Winged Victory's school, after hearing from his aunt (one of W.V.'s first students) about how wonderful it was. Throughout the whole arc Joey was told that Winged Victory couldn't take him on as a student because he was a boy and her schools are for women only. Despite this and still being badly bruised from what is implied to have been a beating from his father, Joey somehow worked up the nerve to [[spoiler: follow after Karnazon's Iron Legion and activate his aunt's old signal device (Winged Victory gives those to all former students) to contact Winged Victory. When all was said and done, Winged Victory stopped and asked Joey why he went to so much trouble for someone he never met before, and he explained that, on the night he arrived to Samothrace he overheard Winged Victory discussing with her ally Delphi about her doubts and fears over this current situation. Joey said that she looked the way that he felt inside, and no one should ''ever'' have to feel that way, so he just did what he could to help her.]]
