** Reportedly Jack Kirby originally conceived the entire series for the Marvel universe when he still worked at Marvel before his falling out with Stan Lee - more specifically he envisioned the New Gods replacing TheMightyThor and all his fellow Asgardians, who he intended to perish in Ragnarok or some other similar catastrophe, and there are some very strong similarities (perhaps most notably being Highfather's similarity to Odin). This becomes HilariousInHindsight considering that Marvel's Thanos was based on Kirby's Darkseid.

* {{Applicability}}: The idea that the Fourth World was an "Allegory for [[UsefulNotes/TheVietnamWar]]" was a common theme for a long time among critics (among other timely themes) but all specifics were more-or-less disavowed by Kirby, and there's no evidence he intended any specific {{Allegory}} beyond dramatizing his views on good and evil.

* RealitySubtext: Mister Miracle and Big Barda's relationship is based on the one Kirby had with his own wife. Some have suggested that the entirety of the New Gods were a metaphor for the Cold War and the Vietnam War.

* TechnologyMarchesOn: Averted considering JackKirby was visionary enough to create fantasy technology that often felt ahead of its time. The most obvious example are the Mother Boxes, handheld artificially intelligent computers that usually look like small computer tablets without a display screen. Vykin of the Forever People carries a larger boxlike version, but that is more for ease of handling considering the team must lay their hands on it to exchange places with the Infinite Man.
