* "Legends." The Justice Guild sacrificing themselves to do the right thing, even if it means ending their existence. [[note]] For context, the entire world they're in was actually a LotusEaterMachine created by the young sidekick character, who's actually a hideously mutated survivor of nuclear holocaust that happened 40 years earlier. [[\note]]


Added DiffLines:

** You can't help but feel bad for the villain in this episode, given that he was a hideously mutated boy who chose to [[spoiler: live in an [[CrapsaccharineWorld unchanging world based on the exploits of the Justice Guild]] in order to escape the reality that [[AfterTheEnd he's living in the aftermath of a nuclear fallout]]. Doubly so if he actually was the sidekick kid of the heroes.]]

-->'''Ace''': They weren't really games, you know. They were training me, [[ChildSoldier turning me into a weapon]], "[[WellIntentionedExtremist for justice]]", they said. They got their weapon - I got cheated out of my childhood.\\

'''Waller''': ''(narrating)'' He sat with her until her time came.

** Batman, in a rare moment of vulnerability, [[spoiler:regresses to the night his parents were killed. This time, Dr. Thomas Wayne overpowers Joe Chill and starts beating the crap out of him while Bruce cheers.]]. You actually see his real-world self ''genuinely smile in happiness''. As Wonder Woman rips the Black Mercy off of Batman, [[spoiler:little Bruce watches in despair all over again as Chill regains control and fatally shoots his father]]. Little Bruce's face is heartbreaking, and a moment later we fade out to see the same despair on Batman's face.

* Pictured above: the [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YOooJW5SSDA massively heartwrenching scene]] in "Epilogue". [[DarkMagicalGirl Ace]]'s introductory episode -- which shows {{flashback}} images of her being held in various laboratories, her psychologically-broken parents (which she is implied to have accidentally mindwiped as a toddler), the mental-restraint helmet holding back her powers, and the rare occasion where she ''[[CryCute cries]]'' -- are enough to make you choke. In "Epilogue", Ace has created a new Royal Flush Gang with her powers, which have evolved into full-bore reality warping. Once they're taken care of by the JLU, Amanda Waller shows up with another job for the League: [[spoiler:take out Ace before she suffers a massive aneurysm and her powers deal out damage in the form of a psychic backlash that would kill everyone in range--"that's a distance measured in ''miles''". Batman takes a weapon designed to kill Ace and rushes into her hiding spot]].

** In a desperate attempt to give their lives meaning, the Ultimen decide to take on the Justice League. [[CurbStompBattle It doesn't go so well,]] and only paints them as villains. Even worse is Wind Dragon's HeroicBSOD at the end, after Long Shadow talks him out of killing Superman, who he had always admired.

* In "The Savage Time" three parter, there is a tearjerker that might be overlooked at first. When the League inform a time altered Batman that history as he knows it has been changed he says, "Then my parents might still be alive." Superman just says, "I can't promise that." Right before they travel back to the WWII era to restore the tmeline, J'onn warns Batman that this version of him will not exist if they are successful. Batman says [[ExactWords Nothing would make me happier.]] The Justice League change history back to how it was and Batman is still without his parents. Nothing changed for him except how and why they died. Sadly, nothing the League did made him any happier. What's really sad is that in virtually all adaptations of Batman, all Elseworld stories, he really never is truly happy.
