* AdaptationalWimp: While ''incredibly'' dangerous here, Starro was much more so in the comics, where he's the core of a HiveMind of parasitic creatures who can brainwash entire planets. He's much bigger too, his offspring being the size of the starfish aliens in this version.

to:

* AdaptationalHeroism: While still a villain, Starro is far more evil in the comics, where he and his spawn have a malevolent intelligence, and are intent on galactic conquest.

* TheMole: An odd variation of the theme occurred. After a member of the Justice League was injured in a suspicious accident, Superman recruited Terry in an effort to find out if there was, indeed, a traitor among their members. As it turned out, Superman himself was the traitor, but not intentionally; he was under the MindControl of one of the aliens he had kept at the Fortress of Solitude for so many years.

* TheMole: An odd variation of the theme occurred. After a member of the Justice League was injured in a suspicious accident, Superman recruited Terry in an effort to find out if there was, indeed, a traitor among their members. Due to the growing tense between the League and Batman, Big Barda and Wakhawk automatically assume Batman was the traitor. As it turned out, Superman himself was the traitor, but not intentionally; he was under the MindControl of one of the aliens he had kept at the Fortress of Solitude for so many years. His reason in recruiting Batman is likely to keep suspicions off of him.



* NewMeat: Batman to the other JLU members, at least initially. Warhawk and Big Barda, in particular, clearly express their disapproval of his new membership.

* NewMeat: Batman to the other JLU members, at least initially. Warhawk and Big Barda, in particular, clearly express their disapproval of his new membership. Mostly because Superman recruited him without even telling the team first, which Big Barda took personally.

* AntiVillain: Starro, given that he did not come to the Earth by choice and had only been acting in his own self-interest after being held prisoner for years, possibly centuries. Superman points this out at the end and has Starro and his clones sent back to their home world instead of destroying them.
* BadassBystander: Terry engages longtime enemy Inque in yet another battle near the beginning of the episode. In an attempt to hold Terry off, Inque grabs what she thinks is an InnocentBystander to hold hostage. The bystander turns out to be ''[[MuggingTheMonster Superman]]'' [[MuggingTheMonster in disguise]]. The results [[CurbStompBattle do not end well for Inque]].
