** The book "The Just" is a look at the comic book industry's place in the larger pop culture consciousness, in particular to superficial Hollywood and blockbuster movies. In this world, peace has been achieved for years and the children of heroes are superficial mock-ups of their parents, much the same way that movie stars and film-adaptations of comics lack the depth, morality, or affection of their panel-dwelling counterparts. Heroes don't have any ''real'' fights anymore, but engage in highly-publicized re-enactments for the populace. They even knock the fans who only vaguely go into comics because it's a popular thing due to films with no deeper appreciation.

** The New 52 ''Teen Titans'' later ended up on the other end of a TakeThat in the ''Comicbook/DCRebirth'' relaunch of the title.
