* HeartwarmingInHindsight: [[spoiler:As Kal-L dying he said "they're still out there". While it could mean anything, he could be referring to the multiverse. Almost a decade later, the multiverse was restored at the end of ''Comicbook/{{Convergence}}''.]]



** Alexander Luthor has crossed it from before the story started and just kept on going. Superboy Prime crosses it towards the middle by murdering [[CListFodder lesser known heroes]], Superboy and at the end by killing [[spoiler: Golden Age Superman]].

* DesignatedHero: The heroes in the book seem downright ''psychotic''. Where to begin? Superboy jovially freeing the murderous Black Adam to help them despite the justified doubts of a comrade? Powergirl's non-reaction to a man's head being turned into hamburger meat in front of her? Given the premise, these could've been perfect examples of how dark the heroes of New Earth were becoming if they were ever called for these actions. Despite being one of the supposed true heroes, Kal-L doesn't exactly come off smelling like roses, either. When calling out Diana for how the Justice League are acting completely unheroic, one of the key points he lists is how their League "lobotomizes their adversaries" ignoring that Dr. Light had ''raped'' Elongated Man's ''wife'', and that the lobotomization in question was an accident anyway (they were attempting to "clean him up"). It certainly wasn't the choice a hero makes, but Supes's complete lack of understanding given the situation doesn't speak well of him. One wonders what his response would be if asked [[ArmorPiercingQuestion what he would've done if he had just stumbled upon Lois being brutally raped]].

* CompleteMonster: Superboy-Prime begins his descent towards the trope here, killing multiple superheroes, and then blaming them for it, trying to kill Superboy so that he can take his place, trying to kill the entire universe so that he can have ''his'' world back (though in fairness, [[RealLife it's our world as well]]), and finally [[spoiler:beats Kal-L to death]] with his bare hands. Some feel that he hit CM status here, others think that didn't happen until the ''Sinestro Corps War'' or even ''Legion of Three Worlds'', but either way, by the time the story ends he has crossed the MoralEventHorizon and is heading on down.

* TheyJustDidntCare: In the second issue, Tempest tells Dolphin to get "their daughter" to safety when the Spectre arrives to destroy Atlantis. Tempest and Dolphin didn't have a daughter, they had a son. This could've just been written off as an editing mistake, but even when the trade paperback collections of the series were released, Tempest's word balloon was never fixed.
** It seems someone at DC finally realized the mistake with the latest trade paperback printings bearing the new DC logo, and Tempest now refers to his and Dolphin's "son" instead of "daughter."

* WhatDoYouMeanItsNotPolitical: The first issue features [[Comicbook/FreedomFighters Uncle Sam]], the AnthropomorphicPersonification of the United States, being shot InTheBack by a PrivateMilitaryContractor (Comicbook/{{Deathstroke}} to be specific) and landing face-down in a pool of oil.

The story came out at the height of UsefulNotes/TheWarOnTerror, a conflict immensely controversial due to, among other things, the role of military contractors and oil companies in profiteering off it.

Added DiffLines:

* HilariousInHindsight: ''Infinite Crisis'' might as well be an illustrated companion to all the arguments over the DarkerAndEdgier tone that the Film/DCExtendedUniverse has adopted.

* MemeticMutation: [[CosmicRetcon Retcon Punch!]] [[note]]A scene in Infinite Crisis in which Superboy ''literally'' punches through the wall of reality. This was used as a way to fix all the ContinuitySnarls, but ended up being used mockingly by fans to explain any future continuity error.[[/note]]

** Thankfully, the book realizes this and retools [[WellIntentionedExtremist Kal-L,]] [[AxCrazy Superboy-Prime,]] and [[StrawHypocrite Alexander Luthor Jr.]] accordingly. Kal-L even has a HeelRealization.
