* HideYourLesbians: Maggie Sawyer is an imported character from the ''Superman'' comics, first appearing in the 1980's, and has been an out-lesbian since 1988. However, [[AnimationAgeGhetto this could not be explicitly stated in a kids show]] and the closest they get to covering this point is in ''Apokolips... Now!'' when she is visited in the hospital by a woman who comforts her throughout both parts of the episode. The woman is unnamed in the show, but DVD commentary and the credits reveal that she is Toby Raynes, Maggie's long-time girlfriend in the comics, and was included as a reference to their relationship.

** Mala is named for an obscure ''male'' character from the 1950s, the leader of a trio of the first evil Kryptonians Superman battled in two stories. The more famous Phantom Zone idea and villains like Zod came later in UsefulNotes/{{the Silver Age|of Comic Books}} and utterly eclipsed the original trio of Mala, U-Ban, and Kizo. However, in terms of her gender and relationship with fellow CompositeCharacter Jax-Ur, Mala is based primarily on the evil Kryptonian Ursa from the film ''SupermanII''. Interestingly enough, Ursa was probably very loosely inspired by the comics' evil Kryptonian villainess Faora Hu-Ul; unlike Ursa and Mala, who like and respect their male allies, Faora was a man-hating SerialKiller back on Krypton.
