* ArcFatigue: Unfortunately went down this route after sometime, since the arc later separated into several mini-arcs for a while until ending in ''War of the Supermen''. The introduction of a wholly new population of Kryptonians was a strong and daring idea. The entire status quo of the Superman family was reworked and people were pleasantly surprised that writers had actually done something with the eternal MacGuffin that was the Bottle City of Kandor. But at some point along the way, it became apparent that the story was not going anywhere, that the entire World of New Krypton title was in a holding pattern while the associated titles (Superman, ComicBook/ActionComics, ComicBook/{{Supergirl}}, later Adventure Comics) were engaged in crossover storylines. In the end, most of the arc served as setup for successive event stories.

* AngstWhatAngst: By the end of the storyline, the "Hundred Minute War" caused untold destruction to cities around the world, the personal deaths of many world leaders, and all sorts of collateral mass death, but by the end no one remotely dwells on it and any hate and fear towards Kryptonians like Superman is not seen. This behavior carries over into ''ComicBook/SupermanGrounded'' as well.



* MoralEventHorizon: Reactron crosses it in his first appearance, when he kills Supergirl's father while threatening to sexually assault her. General Lane does it when he transforms his daughter Lucy into a superweapon, while Lucy herself does when she murders a scientist for the crime of reporting her unstable condition to her father.

* TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodPlot: Superman having a living Krypton nearby the Earth certainly poses certain storytelling difficulties but given they were an isolationist Utopian people, there was nothing preventing them from just being left alone unless authors had a plot for them. In short, an interesting element of the Superman mythos which could bring something NEW to the setting was destroyed because, "Why not?"

* CompleteMonster: Reactron, a SociopathicSoldier who threatens to rape Supergirl, kills a number of Kryptonians, including her father, tries to murder Mon-El in order to frame Krypton, depowers Supergirl and Flamebird and tries to sexually assault them, and finally blows himself up in the heart of Kandor, killing Supergirl's mother and ninety thousand+ other Kryptonians, gloating the whole time.
** Brainiac, who destroys one planet, tries to destroy Earth, kills several thousand Kryptonians, kills Jonathan Kent, and attempts to melt Superman's brain by feeding several world's worth of information into it.

* AlternateCharacterInterpretation: InUniverse, Superman considers two different explanations for Alura's increasingly hostile actions against humanity: either Alura is motivated by grief of losing Zor-El or she has always been cold and distant and Zor-El was her MoralityChain. Since Superman never had any emotional connection to Alura before the events of ''New Krypton'', he reasons any interpretation is equally valid.

* CharacterDerailment: General Lane and [[spoiler: Lucy Lane]] being suspicious of Kryptonians? Fine. Both wanting to commit ''genocide'' against them for no crime greater than existence? Fans were not amused.
