* NoHoldsBarredBeatdown: Wonder Woman does a lot better here then she did in the original comics, actually putting up a good fight and being the one to pull the Black
Mercy off of Batman to use on Mongul. This doesn't change the fact that Mongul outclasses her, though; by the time Superman is out of his fantasy and intervenes, she's been beaten so badly that she can't even walk, forcing her to pull herself forward on one arm.

* NoHoldsBarredBeatdown: Wonder Woman is one of the heaviest hitters in the Justice League, but Mongul just laughs and beats her to a pulp. By the time Superman is out of his fantasy and intervenes, she's been beaten so badly that she can't even walk, forcing her to pull herself forward on one arm.

* AdaptedOut: Jason Todd doesn't appear in the JLU adaptation, as he was never introduced in the DCAU. Similarly, Tim Drake, who held the title at the time the story was set, did not appear because he was ExiledFromContinuity as with all other Batman-related characters aside from Batman himself.



* BeCarefulWhatYouWishFor: Averted in the animated version, however, where Krypton really ''is'' a paradise -- making it all the more painful for Superman to reject it.



* BloodlessCarnage: In the JLU version, Mongul beating the living daylights out of Wonder Woman and not opening a single wound.



* EvilCannotComprehendGood: Mongul speculates that the Black Mercy is showing Superman as ruler of the universe; in reality, Superman's having a dream of living a peaceful, quiet life with a loving family on Krypton.

to:

* DidYouJustPunchOutCthulhu: The animated version has only Superman, Batman, and Wonder Woman present, and it's Diana who gets in the final shot with the Black Mercy.
* EvilCannotComprehendGood: Mongul speculates that the Black Mercy is showing Superman as ruler of the universe; in reality, Superman's having a dream of living a peaceful, quiet life with a loving family on Krypton. In both versions, it's implied at the end that Mongul is perfectly content with the fantasy of bloody conquest the Black Mercy is giving him. Whereas Superman is able to break free because, being a hero, he was able to comprehend ''something wrong'' with the fantasy he was given.


Added DiffLines:

* KarmaHoudini[=/=]KarmicDeath: Mongul's fate. Death being figurative here, of course. Depending on if Mongul's dream turns sour or if he's dissatisfied with it, he got exactly what he wanted and was satisfied with it. In the ''Justice League Unlimited'' episode, Batman bitterly states that whatever he sees is "too good for him".
* MeaningfulName:
**Franchise/WonderWoman (Franchise/{{Batman}} in the comic) bred a new rose as a gift for Superman, calling it "The Krypton". It's ruined at the end of the story.
** And Superman's wife Loana. See Composite Character above.


Added DiffLines:

* OffscreenMomentOfAwesome: A very brief version in the animated adaptation, in which Superman overpowers Mongul, who previously had the upper hand, while falling through several floors in thick smoke.


Added DiffLines:

* PoliticallyIncorrectVillain: As in the comic, Mongul makes a number of blatantly sexist remarks toward Wonder Woman.


Added DiffLines:

* SuplexFinisher: Wonder Woman to Mongul in the JLU version. Though not a finisher move -- it barely fazes him.

* BerserkButton: To escape the Black Mercy, Superman has to willingly reject his ultimate fantasy of a happy life on Krypton with the family he never knew. The pain of this is compared to having to rip off your own arm and it causes Superman to go completely berserk on Mongul, including actually using his eye beams on him, requiring a discretion shot as it burns him. It's not until he sees a statue of his parents that he stops mercilessly pounding a prone Mongul.



* NoHoldsBarredBeatdown: Wonder Woman is one of the heaviest hitters in the Justice League, but Mongul just laughs and beats her to a pulp. By the time Superman is out of his fantasy and intervenes, she's been beaten so badly that she can't even walk, forcing her to pull herself forward on one arm.



* PlayingPossum: Wonder Woman.

to:

* PlayingPossum: Mongul sneers at Wonder Woman.Woman for apparently going down in one hit, but she was just trying to get him to talk a little more about what he did to Superman. Unfortunately, he really is much stronger than her.



* SociopathicHero: Batman's greatest desire is to watch his father, beating the crap out of a mugger, for the rest of eternity.
** Not just any mugger but the very one that took his family from him at the age of 8.

* NothingIsScarier: Unlike the comic version, we never actually get to see what it is that Mongul sees in his fantasy. And yet, it is so much worse...

* PragmaticAdaptation: Creator/AlanMoore's ''ForTheManWhoHasEverything''. They took out some of the darker aspects which gave it its own unique effect while sticking to the overall idea. Notably, this is the only adaptation of his work that Moore actually likes.

* TookALevelInBadass: Mongul comes across as ''far'' more menacing and dangerous than his first appearance.
* WordOfGod: J.M. Dematteis:
-->''I don't think he'd be happier on Krypton. It's just that Superman never really knew Krypton and had a profound longing to experience that part of his history. Krypton is part of him but Earth, I think, is a bigger part.''
