** In general, this series was intended to explain a lot of things that were depicted in DC's concurrent "One Year Later" event, in which DC's books took up the story exactly one year after ''InfiniteCrisis'' to show that many things had occurred differently. However, the writers of ''52'' ended up ignoring a lot of these in favour of their own stories, meaning that some of these (such as, in ''Batman'' comics, the events that saw Commissioner Gordon re-instated and his successor resign in disgrace) have still not been explained.

* CrazyAwesome: The climax of the series is [[spoiler: a time traveling glory hound saving the universe from a giant alien butterfly with glasses who inadvertently creates a multiverse by eating ''time''. In space.]] This is why we read comics, folks.

** Similarly, Sobek's constant complaints of hunger suddenly hit a lot harder when you learn that [[spoiler:he's really Famine, a Horseman of the Apocalypse]].

* HarsherInHindsight: Several of The Question's lines take on a new meaning once you find out [[spoiler: he is dying from cancer and knows it]]. This line in particular from Renee is especially wince-worthy.

* {{Narm}}: [[WordOfGod By the writers own admission]], their original plans for killing [[spoiler: Booster Gold]] came off as hilarious instead of traumatic and they had to rewrite the scene several times in order to arrive at a scenario that had both the impact and the solemnity they wanted.

Added DiffLines:

** [[spoiler:The straw Sue Dibny]] coming to life. Even the creators thought it was horrifying.

* AuthorsSavingThrow: According to the trade release, the writers had no idea a third into the series who the BigBad would be. Grant Morrison asked, "What if [[spoiler: Skeets]] turned out to be evil?" They went with it.

** [[spoiler: Skeets telling Booster Gold that he (Skeets) was proud of him, just before Skeets had to be sacrificed to stop Mr. Mind.]]
* ThirtySuePileup: Isis. And given [[spoiler:[[DeconstructedTrope what happens to her later]]]], this was in all likelihood [[IntendedAudienceReaction completely intentional]].
** CopyCatSue: For both Black Adam and Mary Marvel.
** PuritySue: Her mere presence, once she gets her powers, can cause plants to flower and other TastesLikeDiabetes things to happen.
** RelationshipSue: Of the "I can change the big scary DracoInLeatherPants!" variety.
** SympatheticSue: Formerly a sexually-abused slave girl.
