* 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, 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.

* CompleteMonster: Of all the {{Evil Counterpart}}s Superman has had over the years, Superboy-Prime begins is easily the most repulsive one. While the reader could at first sympathize with him a little, since he lost his descent towards the trope here, killing multiple superheroes, and then blaming them for it, trying to kill Superboy so homeworld, it quickly becomes clear that he can take is nothing more than a selfish, immoral and absolutely [[TheUnfettered ruthless]] [[TheSociopath sociopath]] who will stop at nothing to get [[ItsAllAboutMe what he wants]]. Throughout his place, trying to kill the entire universe so that he can have ''his'' world back, 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 numerous appearances, he has crossed killed and crippled several Teen Titans ([[HeroKiller Superboy]] among them), massacred countless alternate Supermen (for being inferior to him) before blowing up their Homeworlds, carved his way through the MoralEventHorizon Green Lantern Corps and the Legion of Superheroes, and killed his own girlfriend because she was repulsed by him. His most common excuse is heading on down.[[NeverMyFault that his victims brought it upon themselves]]. In ''ComicBook/BlackestNight'', it seemed like he wanted to redeem himself, but he promptly threw his chance out of the window in his next appearance, when he tried to attack the Titans again.

Added DiffLines:

** Superboy-Prime ''literally'' '''punching the wall of reality''', due to how ludicrous it is even for ''comic standards''.

Added DiffLines:

* HarsherInHindsight: The series repeatedly brings up that Dick Grayson is Batman's favourite Robin, and in the end, Bruce, believing Dick is dead, was willing to ''kill'' Alexander Luthor Jr. It's touching and all... then came "Under the Hood", which featured a resurrected Jason Todd distraught that Bruce never killed the Joker to avenge ''his'' murder, and Bruce saying he thinks about it but would never cross that line. Except... he was about a second away from doing it for ''Dick''. ParentalFavouritism indeed...

* 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}}''.]]

* 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? Power Girl'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' complete lack of understanding given the situation doesn't speak well of him.

** 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]].

* 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."
