* Batman saving Superman from a Kryptonite missile. When the javelin's own fire power isn't enough to destroy it, he flies the javelin itself into the missile so to veer it off-course, just barely escaping with his life.

* Superman ushering an injured Batman to an EMS
* Wonder Woman's introduction is met with a lot of skepticism, especially from Lantern, as this is her first time away from her homeland and no one has seen yet how she can hold her own in a fight. ''Batman'' of all people is the one who insists on allowing her to help and prove herself.




to:

* Batman as Bruce Wayne offering Diana to a dance to give her an out when she is swarmed by the press.
* When Batman alters the coordinates to Savage's machine to the Kaznian Castle and he and Wonder Woman evacuate the area along with all personnel sans Savage himself, he shields Audrey when the blast makes impact and Diana shields him.




to:

* Green Lantern trying to keep the team together as the group dynamic starts to collapse in part 1.



** Back in Superman's original time, he appears to have been killed, leading to many other heartwarming moments such as Batman visiting Superman's memorial.

to:

** The first thing Superman does when he returns to his time? [[TakingTheBullet He stops Deadshot's attempt on Batman's life.]]

to:

* Despite his actions, Aquaman is [[PapaWolf VERY protective of his son.]] To the point that he makes the ultimate sacrafice to save their lives: [[spoiler: Cutting off his own hand to save his son.]]
* Aquaman is willing to try and make peace despite rough time because he wants what's best for his son's future. It's especially nice given that it's Superman who tries to talk him down initially, as the two have a sort of good relationship from his appearance in SupermanTheAnimatedSeries.




to:

* Superman being the IdealHero as always and inspiring the people of War World. This is especially helped by J'onn cheering for Superman to help give the people more hope.




to:

* The amount of effort the women take when [[spoiler: Aresia puts her plague on the male gender.]]. They are all over the place and trying to save as many people. Many of which are likely their husbands, sons, fathers, or even just friends or neighbors. They are doing all they can to help everyone they can.
* In a sour note, [[spoiler: The captain saving Aresia. Despite it taking all of his strength, he tried to save a little girl from drowning and got her to shelter. [[TearJerker all he gets out of it is a lonely grave on Thymesceria]]]]




to:

* Jason Blood reassures J'onn after everything is done, telling him that Etrigan was wrong.
* The Flash standing up for Martian Manhunter from the Demon himself, Etrigan. Batman even tells him point blank tha he'd trust J'onn with his life.




to:

* The relationship between Metamorpho and his girlfriend, Sapphire. Even willing to sacrafice himself to take him down.
* John and Rex's friendship, while shaky, is very strong. He even says that Rex went out a hero, and Sapphire says that it'd would have meant the world to him to hear John say that.




to:

* Diana quickly getting a kinship with WildPartyGirl, Audrey (A princess set to be married). The two are close at a rather fast pace, and even get along enough that Diana, the symbol of Truth, takes Audrey at her word when dealing with a potential super villain. She trusts her that much.




to:

* While they initially joined against them with Godfrey, the people are quick to thank Flash (Who was the punching bag/prime target of Godfrey's in the episode), shows that the Flash's influence is important to the team.




to:

* In a twisted way, Morgan's affection for her son.
* the "Justice Babies" As Mordred called them being Adorkable in their attempts to still be their adult selves and still coming off as kids. One stand out is Diana playing as a big sister/maternal figure for the many kids, including a infant-version of Etrigan.




to:

* Hank wanting to [[BigBrotherInstinct save Don from the Annihilator,]] trying to throw WONDER WOMAN off of him to try and protect him.
* Wonder Woman telling Ares that hope will win out the day, no matter what.




to:

* Booster Gold may not get the credit, but he still ends up getting the girl. "Squeaky wheel" indeed.
* Elongated Man being hailed as a hero for his help in defeating the dangerous mage, as he felt like he wasn't treated with any respect.




to:

* Dr. Fate taking in [[spoiler: Amazo to be his student.]]




to:

* Dinah making it clear that she sees Ted as a father-figure to Green Arrow, who got a little jealous. It's heartwarming in two folds:
** She is proving that she didn't just drag along Green Arrow for his cash, she needed his help genuinely because someone she cared deeply about is in trouble.
** She wants to help her mentor, who taught her and many others everything they know, and that he is still important to them despite his age.




to:

* Flash offering friendship to Barda with a flower in her Power Staff, giving a rather childish smile.
* The idea of Martian Manhunter playing a game with Flash, being the ComicallySerious folk he is. Actually, just the friendship between them is good in the end.

* The outcome of the League's vote on Hawkgirl's status is revealed: John abstained for obvious reasons, and the tie was broken by Superman, who voted to let her stay:
-->"I believe in second chances. I believe in redemption. But most importantly, I believe in my friends."

to:

* The outcome of All appearances to the League's vote contrary, Aquaman's antagonistic behavior during his game of chess with Shayera was a genuine attempt at helping her get back on Hawkgirl's status is revealed: John abstained for obvious reasons, her feet. Makes sense when you contrast Shayera's current bored and the tie was broken by Superman, who voted to let disinterested personality [[FridgeBrilliance with her stay:

** This sparks protests from several [[UngratefulBastard citizens who seem to have ignored her heroics today,]] prompting John to tell them to back off. Shayera insists that she deserves some of it. Then the mother of the child that she saved earlier, gives this sweet line:
--->'''Mother:''' You saved our lives. God bless you, Chica Halcón.
--->'''John Stewart:''' You deserve that, too.

** Also in the episode, the teamwork between the heroes and villains qualifies IMO. There are lives saved by both sides toward the other (Shining Knight goes out of his way to save Star Sapphire), and while it's not real surprising the heroes will make an effort to save even the villains, the other way around is pretty heartwarming. These guys all hate the League, and could easily chalk up a hero's death as happening in battle, but there are least a couple of instances shown where the villains are not just fighting the enemy, but actually go OUT OF THEIR WAY to save one of the heroes. One that comes to mind, Hawkgirl, whose wing has been speared preventing her from flying, uses her mace to destroy the power core of one of the Apokolips drill machines. She receives a powerful electric shock in the process, then falls to the ground, weakened, and unable to fly away from the machine which about to explode. Atomic Skull then, rather than running away from soon to be exploding machine, runs over to Hawkgirl, helps her up and helps carry her to safety.

* As the Alien Invasion continues, Wonder Woman and J'onn look from a rooftop as people are looting and rioting. Diana questions whether she should have [[ScrewTheRulesImDoingWhatsRight disobeyed]] her mother to help the people of the rest of the world based on [[HobbesWasRight what she has observed]], but J'onn quickly points to a counter example where a couple of burly, typically biker-type individuals are trying to rescue two children from underneath some debris when Green Lantern arrives to assist them. J'onn responds that while [[RousseauWasRight people are not entirely good, but aren't evil]] either.

to:

* When Hawkgirl comments on GL's strange behaviour, saying that she's beginning to think "all you humans" are strange, before realizing she's talkin' to [[HumanAliens Superman]], who replies that he [[IJustWantToBeNormal takes it as a compliment]].




to:

* The entire episode, an adaptation of ''ComicBook/ForTheManWhoHasEverything'' was awesome, but at least 1/3 of it qualifies for CMOH. The stand-out contenders are Batman's speech trying to snap Clark out of his trance and Diana's unrelenting attempts to get to Bruce and free him from the Black Mercy. The devotion the Trinity shows to each other in this episode makes a person's heart melt every time.




to:

* Long Shadow getting to live out his dream of being a member of the Justice League [[spoiler: before his body completely breaks down. More so, this was after Batman and Aquaman refused to let Cadmus take him away with the rest of the Ultimen.]]




to:

* The outcome of the League's vote on Hawkgirl's status is revealed: John abstained for obvious reasons, and the tie was broken by Superman, who voted to let her stay:
-->"I believe in second chances. I believe in redemption. But most importantly, I believe in my friends."
* After Grundy's body is reanimated by a bunch of wannabe-wizards, Aquaman's immediate rage is touching in its own BarbarianHero way:
--->'''Doctor Fate''': Solomon Grundy's grave is empty.
--->'''Aquaman''': Tell me where to find those responsible -- then dig more graves.




to:

* The brief kiss David (Chronos) Clinton gives his wife Enid just before he attempts to re-write the timeline proves that despite all his psychoses, he still cares about her.
** John's '''[[{{Understatement}} very]]''' protective of his family.
-->'''John Stewart''': (''saves Warhawk by firing a blast at Woof'') [[PapaWolf Get away from my kid!]]




to:

* When the Question reveals that the huge mysterious reason he was helping Huntress the whole time is... he cares about her.
** She drags him off by his tie at the end, despite having been making disparaging jokes about his mask ("I usually prefer my dates to have a face") for much of the episode, because she's not going to give up a chance with a guy who'd do all that for her.
*** Equally adorably on his side; despite all the mean jokes she's been making, he never objects and remains perfectly willing to help her out. Most likely he wasn't even planning on telling her why he was doing it, let alone expecting to get anything out of it.




to:

* A small bit where Shayera is worried where Flash went after Fire dropped him to help the former. Flash shows up and manages to "fly" by spinning his arms like a helicopter before crashing down to the ground in a comical fashion. Shayera scolds him for scaring her like that. Considering that Flash nearly died in "Divided We Fall", [[LikeBrotherAndSister Shayera]] is very concerned about his well-being.
-->'''Flash''': She loves me. Seriously, she's like the [[CoolBigSis big sister I never had]]. Only, you know, [[PintsizedPowerhouse short]].
** At the end of the episode, Shayera and the last surviving Blackhawk member paid their respects to the deceased members. When Fire asks why they have to protect Blackhawk Island - which she describes as a "musty old museum" - instead of going after Lex, Flash tells her that saving the island is worth it, considering that the Blackhawks helped the League restore history during "Savage Time".




to:

* Diana is worried about J'onn isolating himself up in the Watchtower for two years and tells him to go out for a while and have some fresh air. At the end of the episode, J'onn decided to go on leave from the League for some soul-searching. Before leaving the Watchtower, several of the members gather around to say goodbye and Flash gives him a hug. Doubles as a TearJerker.




to:

* The ending. The non-powered heroes get beaten around something awful and were underappreciated right before the incident but the moment the old woman walked up to Shining Knight and took his hand, this episode inspired one of the best [=CMOHs=] in the series.
** Furthermore Shining Knight, about to be taken to hospital, insists that he first be allowed to thank the woman who saved him.
*** Even seeing how the opinions of the children had changed after all was said and done could put a smile one your face. For all their complaints about wanting to see Superman around the start of the episode, they start playing as Shining Knight and Vigilante by the end. It really goes to show that it's not the powers that make the hero.
** From earlier in the episode, Vigilante, after hearing some in the crowd mumbling on how they weren't seeing the cool heroes, improvises showing off all the trappings of his team, and planting the seeds of change in showing how despite not being Superman, they still have flying horses and magic staffs.
--->'''Stargirl:''' ''(Impressed)'' Wow, you really know how to work a crowd.
--->'''Vigilante:''' Shoot, if I had my guitar I'd have 'em eatin' outta my hand!
