* EsotericHappyEnding: The story tries to tell us that a new generation of heroes is about, the problems with this are that there were likely millions of innocents ''killed'' due to people losing their powers, few superheroes getting over their problems, the magical characters (close friends of the heroes ad entire civilizations) are still mysteriously missing, and Kyle Rayner, ultimately, ends up killed due to psychotic obsession. This isn't getting into the fact that many tech-based supervillains ''keep'' their powers and abilities, one [[spoiler: new, superpowered being]] doesn't make the world better.

* StrangledByTheRedString: Superman and Wonder Woman, considering that Lois is pretty handily derailed in order to break up with Clark.
** That said, both Wonder Woman and Superman undergo some fairly odd changes in behaviour and world view to come together in the way they did.

* {{Narm}}: The Phoenix Group's new gimmicks and costumes are ''very'' lame. Martian Manhunter becomes "Green Man" who for some reason utilizes a skull motif for his grenades; Aquaman becomes "The Hand" utilizing a gauntlet with interchangeable hands; Supergirl becomes "Justice" wielding a [[DoubleWeapon dual mace]] named "The Scales of Justice" and wears a blindfold in her costume that still lets her see, apparently just so she can pull of the "justice is blind" joke. Wally West as "Red Devil" works well enough, at least.

TheReveal of these new identities are supposed to represent they've completed their training and have been reborn as a new generation of heroes, but you'll more likely groan at how bad their new gimmicks are.

** All magic-based heroes are gone... except for, you know, the angel, the animate Amazonian golem, the guy with the power of the afterlife, the air elemental...

** ComicBook/TheAtom didn't have any powers. He had a belt that made him able to shrink.

** ComicBook/TheAtom didn't have any powers. He had a belt that made him able to shrink. Hank Henshaw does have a power, the ability to inhabit machines which should have been taken from him with the blacklight, and yet he's fighting alongside the Joker and other non-powered villains just fine.

* CriticalResearchFailure: Doug Moench has had no experience with anybody involved with this story besides Batman, and didn't bother to actually research any of them before writing it. [[OutOfCharacterMoment It shows]], but some particularly egregious examples:

** Interestingly, Marvel would do something similar with one of their "What If?" issues. However, they had a way to do it that made at least some sense in-universe. One of the main events was the "House of M" incident where it ended with Scarlet Witch decreeing "No More Mutants!" and using the massive power boost she had via some sort of chaos influx, depowered many mutants. In this What-If scenario, she instead proclaimed "No More Power!" and in this one she depowered ''all'' the heroes. There was no moping or angsting on the part of the good guys. When Red Skull came with a powerful new weapon, new Avengers risked their lives with Iron Man suits and led by Peter Parker, who broke said weapon (the ''Cosmic Cube.'')
