* MarySue: Stargirl avoided this, despite being based off of Geoff Johns' late sister. She's respectful, virginal, always shown to be in the right in any debate, and is always mentioned by others as being pretty, nice, full of potential, and has various other superheroes trying to date her. But she avoids this by still being immature, and she's one of the least powerful members of the team.

* CrowningMomentOfAwesome: Atom-Smasher shows more of these than almost the entire rest of the team. Single-handedly nearly killed Kobra, ripped the Worlogog off of Extant (and having him killed in place of his mother), and willingly gave up his life for the people of Kahndaq against The Spectre.
* CrowningMomentOfAwesome: The entire team's [=CMoA=] is the Black Reign arc.



** AscendedMeme: Which was once noted in story, when a bunch of comments are made about her, from calling her a joke, insulting her former use of wearing a hat, and refering to her as the 'team mascot' or pet, one of the comments heard included 'Does she even wear underwear?' While sorta funny, combined with her face and the other comments, makes it just fuel to her woobieness.
* RescuedFromTheScrappyHeap: Bill Willingham said this was the goal with Mr. America III, to make something out of a character with so-far zero personality and no powers. He ended up just giving him explosive-tipped whips and a crush on the teenage Lightning (keep in mind that she's a contemporary of Stargirl, while he is likely ''much'' older than Atom Smasher, and the JSAers weren't too keen on ''that'' relationship. He left the book without doing anything else with him.
* TheScrappy: Magog is hated by a lot, partially because he's a massive JerkAss who got a lot of time on screen. ''A lot'' of people also cite him [[KickTheDog hitting]] [[GenkiGirl Maxine]] [[TheWoobie 'Cyclone']] [[EnsembleDarkhorse Hunkel]] when she was flying overhead because 'she came at him from his blindspot.' Magog has also been accused of being a [[AuthorAvatar mouthpiece]] for writer Bill Willingham's right-wing views; fans were quick to call UnfortunateImplications when Magog took center stage in an arc that also featured Obsidian (who is gay) being [[AndIMustScream turned into an egg]] and Mister Terrific (who is black and atheist) being shanked in the back like a street thug (both eventually got better).

** PowerGirl, what with her angst over her convoluted past and the revelation that she's not wanted on the newly reformed Earth-2 since the universe created a new Power Girl to replace her in that world.

* CreatorsPet: Magog was used constantly to the point of absurdity. By the ending of Geoff Johns' popular run on the book, he was a reasonably popular character (and an homage to DC's legendary book ''ComicBook/KingdomCome''), but with the new creative team, he became the most important character of the book (despite it having a cast of over ''twenty characters'' by this point). Despite fan complaints, Magog soon got centre stage on most of the covers, got to co-lead one entire JSA team on their own book, and even ''got his own solo series'', despite him being a nobody even a couple years before that! The backlash was tremendous, and his hilariously-low-selling book was cancelled quickly, his storyline wrapped up, and the character unceremoniously killed off in ''[[BrightestDay Generation Lost]]'' by Max Lord, to prevent Magog from creating a future similar to the original story he originated from.

* HoYay: There's the almost downright coy [[HeterosexualLifePartners bromance]] between the murderous BlackAdam and the (relatively) young and naive Atom-Smasher, who is twice convinced by Adam to abandon the JSA and fight at his side. It makes sense that Atom-Smasher chooses to wear a full-face mask like his godfather Al Pratt: he's hiding the goo-goo eyes he's making at Adam behind it.

** Captain Marvel breaking up with Stargirl was easily this especially her pleas for him to tell the JSA his real age and identity and subsequent break down in tears when he leaves.

* MarySue: Stargirl avoided this in recent years, despite being based off of Geoff Johns' late sister. She's respectful, virginal, and always shown to be in the right in any debate, and is always mentioned by others as being pretty, nice, full of potential, and has various other superheroes trying to date her. But she avoids this by still being occasionally immature, and she's one of the least powerful members of the team.
* MemeticMutation: Not much, but because of Alex Ross's...''sugestive'' depiction of Maxine's costume, lead to many making jokes about her apparent lack of underwear or commenting that she forgot it.

* TheScrappy: Magog is hated by a lot, partially because he's a massive JerkAss who got a lot of time on screen. A LOT of people also cite him [[KickTheDog hitting]] [[GenkiGirl Maxine]] [[TheWoobie 'Cyclone']] [[EnsembleDarkhorse Hunkel]] when she was flying overhead because 'she came at him from his blindspot.'
