** An earlier event, the more nostalgic ''Silver Age'' series of "skip week" specials, also has a group of villains learning the Justice Leaguers' secrets... and in the end, Hawkman uses some Thanagarian technology to remove this knowledge from their minds, with the sanction of Superman and Batman. The whole thing is played as a ResetButton style happy ending. The Silver Age: Justice League chapter also contains a scene in which Doctor Light rejects Catwoman's advances, stating that he "has always been more interested in test tubes and Bunsen burners than the fairer sex."

** The whole reveal that [[spoiler:Dr. Light raped Sue, given that Jeremy Piven, who voiced the Elongated Man in ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeague Unlimited'', has been accused of sexual assault.]]

* EpilepticTrees: While the series was being published, DC Direct cancelled a planned [[Comicbook/GreenLantern Kyle Rayner]] action figure and solicited a Black Hand figure for order. This, coupled with DC editorial remaining mum about whether or not Kyle would continue to be a Green Lantern in the wake of the then-upcoming ''Green Lantern: Rebirth'' mini-series, gave rise to a theory that Kyle was Sue's killer, and that ''Identity Crisis'' would end with him becoming the new Black Hand so that the Green Lantern identity would be free for the resurrected Hal Jordan to use.

* VindicatedByHistory: Inverted. The miniseries was never lacking in detractors, but this was primarily ''because'' it was so big and popular; it was The Big Comic of 2004 That Everyone Was Talking About. Everywhere you went on comic sites, there were people debating over what it meant for the industry, whether [[DarkerAndEdgier its tonal shift]] boded darker stories, and whether the DCU would ever be the same again. But as the years ground on, the general opinion of ''Identity Crisis'' slipped from "controversial masterwork of our time" to "half-baked edgy fumble." Maybe it was how [[TheChrisCarterEffect few of the story threads actually went anywhere or weren't promptly ignored or retconned]], maybe it was how everyone tried to copy it at DC for a few years with increasingly weaker results, maybe it was that people started examining it and separating it from its hype and found that it was actually a very lacking story in many ways. Whatever it is, ''Identity Crisis'' has very few fans today, and whenever someone admits to remembering liking it, they'll usually be greeted by everyone else pointing out its plot holes.

* TheBadGuyWins: [[spoiler: Jean Loring]] reunites with [[spoiler: her husband]] (albeit temporarily); technically all of [[spoiler: her]] hits work as expected. The arrested super-villains are set free by the courts. Even the Calculator outsmarts Batman and in RealLife is upgraded by Meltzer into a sort of agent for hiring muscle and sorting the odds for a given crime.



* DrivenToMadness: Ralph Dibny in the epilogue may be just speaking to his dead wife in a spiritual way or may be going insane.
