** The Morrison series started production as an AlternateCompanyEquivalent to ComicBook/TheAvengers, specifically the idea of a bunch of B-list characters all coming together. There's still some clear remnants of it in the lineup (Guardian to Captain America, Zatanna to Scarlet Witch, Mr. Miracle to Thor, Shining Knight to Black Knight, The Spider to Hawkeye). Also, Klarion's role would originally have been filled by Etrigan (with him being a counterpart of the Hulk), Frankenstein would have been Martian Manhunter (Vision), and Zatanna would have been Enchantress.

*** Altough it probably wasn't planned, Frankenstein can qualify as a Hulk stand-in, being a muscular monster with a weird skin color.

* WhatCouldHaveBeen: {{Subverted|Trope}} after ''thirty years'' -- a Seven Soldiers story for Leading Comics #15 where the team travel through a "Land of Magic" was written, but the comic book itself ended up being completely retooled into a FunnyAnimal comic. In 1975, DC discovered the script and produced the story for Adventure Comics #438-443. [[http://goodcomics.comicbookresources.com/2010/02/18/comic-book-legends-revealed-248/ Details here.]]
