** Practically everything Prometheus does in his GambitRoulette.
** Green Arrow singlehandedly tracking down Prometheus to his other dimensional lair and instantly killing him with a single wooden arrow when Prometheus had been able to shrug off other much more powerful attacks throughout the series.
* CompleteMonster: Prometheus started out as a MagnificentBastard in his initial appearance when created by Creator/GrantMorrison. He then went on to suffer severe VillainDecay in most of his follow-up appearances... until now. In his grand return after years of limbo (after a special one-shot used ''Comicbook/FinalCrisis'' to retcon all of the non Morrison[=/=]VillainDecay stories involving the character as being an impostor), he unleashed a wave of chaos, carnage, and torture on the heroes of the DCU that rivaled even the worst BigBad in the worst Crisis, murdering countless D-list superheroes, killing Mikaal Tomas's lover and Congo Bill's pride, sewing Freddy Freeman's lips together to keep him from speaking his magic world, cruelly lobotomizing genius IQ, mutilating Red Arrow, and culminating with murdering 90,000 people in Star City, including Red Arrow's [[WouldHurtAChild little daughter]]; [[FreudianExcuse all because]], as a kid, his criminal parents were shot in front of him by the police. The series may have been incredibly criticized, but there's no denying that Prometheus is easily one of the most monstrous characters in the DCU.
* MemeticMutation: An unfortunate font choice made the title look more like "Gay for Justice" at a passing glance. Naturally, this caught on fast.

** As mentioned on the [[Trivia/JusticeLeagueCryForJustice trivia page]], while he did do a fairly lackluster job overall, [[spoiler:Lian Harper's death]] was not James Robinson's fault (ExecutiveMeddling strikes again!), although it's one of the first things people usually blame him for.
** A fair number of fans, and even people who aren't comic book readers, have conceded that Robinson's statement at San Diego Comic Con 2010 that he was inspired to cut off Roy Harper's arm as a tribute to Iraq war veterans by creating a superhero with a prosthetic that's not cybernetic was both in very bad taste and an utter dick move, regardless if this was honesty, a bold-faced lie, or something his editors told him to say. He contradicted this statement in the introduction of ''Cry's'' trade paperback, saying that the editors told him they wanted to put Roy in this direction. He also made absolutely no mention of his statement at San Diego.

* StrawmanHasAPoint: Working to actively prevent crimes and super villains isn't a bad idea in itself. It's the way the heroes go about it that undermines their point.
* TheUnTwist: [[spoiler:Green Arrow killing Prometheus is supposed to be shocking, but Ollie's killed before.]]

** Also pointed out by a few is that the story never defines "Justice", or calls the characters out that they mean "revenge" or "punishment" when talking about it.

* VillainSue: A lot of Prometheus' time in this mini is over compensating for his previous VillainDecay by making him nigh-unbeatable to a point where it was no-longer believable: he pulls out a ridiculously complex GambitRoulette, [[CurbStompBattle Curb-Stomps]] the whole league of his own and was somehow able to create a device that would resist to all their powers, including the Shade (who he was explicitly stated to ''not'' have studied before because he was a former villain). This becomes even more ridiculous when [[spoiler:Green Arrow eventually kills him in a very anti-climatic way, with just an arrow in the head, in his own headquarters that he somehow forgot to keep protected during his absence]].

** Prometheus' fight scenes. The man is turned into such a ridiculous VillainSue that watching him mow down the Justice League is laughable rather than impressive.

* CharacterDerailment: Arsenal's crippling and the death of his daughter were supposedly done with the intent to make him more unique as a character, disregarding how few single fathers are superheroes in comics. Instead, he became a NinetiesAntiHero ten years late.
** While Prometheus' VillainDecay was infamous, he really doesn't get better treatment here. While always a villain, Prometheus went from a personal vendetta against police and heroes to holding the VillainBall.
