** Darkseid's possession of [[spoiler: Dan Turpin.]] Lured into a trap, and restrained by Darkseid's minions, they proceed to torture and mutilate him like some kind of horror movie, in order to break [[spoiler: Dan's]] will. As Darkseid begins to possess him, we are treated to many panels of him physically transformed into the rock skinned Darkseid, while having a visor physically attached, shown in a reflection in the mirror. After long periods of torture and transformation, almost similar to [[BatmanBeyondReturnOfTheJoker Tim Drake's tortures]], and with no one around to find him or save him, [[spoiler: Dan]] eventually gives into Darkseid. Because of the physical transformation, there is a level of uncanny valley with this more human shaped incarnation of Darkseid, especially with his eyes, which are more glowing bloodshot eyes with human irises instead of the usual fiery and featureless red. He gloats to Superman how he can't kill him, and gives the most terrifying and utterly depraved SlasherSmile as Superman is dragged by the enslaved masses.

* ContinuityLockout: Good luck on having complete understanding of this book without a near-encyclopedic knowledge of the DC Universe's history. Specifically, Anthro the First Boy, Creator/JackKirby's ''ComicBook/NewGods'', Grant Morrison's ''Seven Soldiers of Victory'', Morrison's [[ComicBook/GrantMorrisonsBatman Batman run]], ''ComicBook/CrisisOnInfiniteEarths'', ''ComicBook/FiftyTwo'', ''ComicBook/JLAEarth2'', ComicBook/{{Kamandi}}, ComicBook/{{OMAC}}, Captain Carrot and the Zoo Crew, ''ComicBook/CountdownToFinalCrisis'' (though ''Final Crisis'' takes serious BroadStrokes in relation to that series) and ''The Trials of ComicBook/{{Shazam}}'' (so you know why the hell Captain Marvel Jr. is Captain Marvel now).


Added DiffLines:

* TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodPlot: One can only assume what this series would've been like if DC listened to Morrison's plea for an embargo on the New Gods characters.

Added DiffLines:

* MisaimedFandom: Grant Morrison had intended for Mary Marvel's possession to be a commentary on how the comics industry often corrupts and perverts superheroines for cheap drama and fanservice. He had hoped that people would be horrified at watching one of the most innocent superheroines in the DC universe acting like a PsychoLesbian. A lot of readers found her evil side hot.

* OlderThanTheyThink: New Gods having host bodies? Black Racer did that with Willie Walker in the original ''New Gods'' book by Jack Kirby.

* CompleteMonster: Darkseid is dying, and so [[TakingYouWithMe as a final gesture]] wants to [[ApocalypseHow destroy the entire multiverse]] and [[OmnicidalManiac all life on it]]. He [[OffingTheOffspring murdered his heroic son]] Orion to permit himself to gain dominion over Earth. Once there, he enslaved the minds of everyone he could touch, turning them into savage parodies of themselves, intending to as he said "murder their souls and take them to hell without end."

* CrowningMomentOfFunny: ''Final Crisis: Requiem'' shows the Injustice Gang being violently ambushed by the Justice League. While Lex, Ocean Master and a few others are getting massacred by their respective nemeses, Batman and Talia just make out. [[spoiler: It's all a hallucination, which really shows where Talia's mind is.]]

* {{Narm}}: "Come closer, I need to eat you ''raw''! SLLUUBBBRR."
** Apparently even DC thought so since they replaced this with "Where Mandrakk waits for you" in the collected edition.
* NightmareFuel: The new nature of Darkseid, not to mention Mandrakk. Darkseid has transcended his physical form and become a nightmarish EldritchAbomination who's ''pulling reality down into the abyss'', and Mandrakk is an interdimensional vampire ''feeding on the death of reality''. Who's heavily implied to be ''the original Monitor.''

** NewMediaAreEvil: LaResistance publishes special editions of the Daily Planet to communicate. For some reason, Darkseid doesn't bother to have the Anti-Life Equation put on posters or anything while he has Justifier slaves burning books...
*** At that point, he already has over 3 billion people under his control, not counting all the meta humans and others I believe. Or the mortioccus virus. Basically, at that point, he may just not care since they can't stop him.



* SoCoolItsAwesome: The final battle, in which Superman, Nix Uotan, the Green Lantern Corps., the Zoo Crew, the Super Young Team, the armies of ''Heaven itself'', an army of alternate Supermen, and more team up to take down [[BigBad Mandrakk]].
* VindicatedByHistory: When the series was originally released, it was [[MindScrew incredibly hard to follow]], due to the series' "channel flipping" method of storytelling, the [[ScheduleSlip Schedule Slip]] that affected the essential tie-in ''Superman Beyond 3D'', and significant [[ExecutiveMeddling Executive Meddling]], particularly in regards to [[ComicBook/CountdownToFinalCrisis Countdown to Final Crisis]]. Now that the series has been collected properly and the readership has had time to properly digest its contents, it's much more well regarded, with a number of readers considering it a modern classic. It's still considered divisive, though.

* BrokenBase: To be expected when you have Grant Morrison make an event comic. Is it a grand epic and the culmination of years of stories, paying tribute to great works, with an ultimate payoff well worth the wait? Or a barely decipherable mess that doesn't care if anyone gets lost, and Morrison's screwing up the DC Universe in a huge fashion while caring more about tying it into his ''[[ComicBook/GrantMorrisonsBatman Batman]]'' run?
