* HilariousInHindsight: Count Vertigo and Kanto wind up fighting each other in Issue 35, which is funny considering that both characters would later be voiced by Michael York in the {{DCAU}} shows (the former appearing in an episode of ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries'' and the latter in an episode of ''WesternAnimation/SupermanTheAnimatedSeries'').

* SugarWiki/AwesomeMoments:
** Comicbook/AmandaWaller staring down Batman is probably the big one (loosely adapted into the ''JusticeLeagueUnlimited'' cartoon with Waller offhandedly calling him "rich boy"), but the gradual reveal of Oracle proved to be the one with the most disproportionate effect on the DCU. [[https://braveandboldlost.blogspot.com/2013/11/amanda-waller-and-hulk.html Byrne's famous cover has become a Memetic Mutation.]]
** For perspective, following [[StuffedIntoTheFridge her crippling]] in ''ComicBook/TheKillingJoke'', Barbara Gordon had been all but written out of the Bat-books and the DCU in general, and most people remembered her as Creator/YvonneCraig in the ''Series/{{Batman}}'' TV show from the 60s. After this, Oracle's become big enough to get several comic series including ''ComicBook/BirdsOfPrey'', her own TV show of [[Series/BirdsOfPrey the same name]], repeat Justice League memberships, and inspired the resurrection of a cheesy villain named the Calculator just to be her evil counterpart. She's generally considered one of the sexiest women in the DCU, and it's primarily for her personality and mind.
** Comicbook/AmandaWaller herself was a walking mine of awesome moments. Laughing as her rebellious subordinate desperately held a gun to her face, and ''daring'' him to shoot. Utterly crushing Kobra's Janus Directive plans. [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking Easily mending the relationship between her son-in-law and her daughter by force of pure, unadulterated]] {{Sassy Black Woman}}hood.
** The cherry on the cake: due to the manipulations of a lovestruck lab tech, Lashina and Poison Ivy, the team is stranded in ''Apokolips''. Many of the Squad perish fighting Parademons and the Female Furies. And then, ''ComicBook/{{Darkseid}}'' appears. Long, long before [[ComicBook/FinalCrisis Batman ever did]], Waller decided she had had '''enough''', and proceeded to threaten the God of Evil with her handgun. When Darkseid offered to revive the fallen, Waller rebuffed him in no uncertain terms, and [[TheReasonYouSuckSpeech told him exactly why]].
*** Vertigo takes out the blade he's been stabbed with and [[LodgedBladeRecycling uses it]] to backstab a New God.
** Shattering the Thinker helmet counts. To wit, she's destroying a powerful piece of technology simply because it made her ''doubt'' if she was in charge of her life.
** Werner Vertigo, half insane and half drugged, manages to fly to the skies above Jerusalem and stops a missile salvo from hitting the Dome of the Rock.
%%** The [[PieInTheFace Mad Pie Thrower]].

* HarsherInHindsight: In an early issue Rick Flag and [[Comicbook/AmandaWaller Waller ]]get into a fight over mind-wiping old Suicide Squad members so they don't reveal information about the squad. Mind-wiping to hide secrets would become a much more serious problem when regular heroes start doing it in ''ComicBook/IdentityCrisis''. Even weirder, Waller of all people eventually relents and decides mind-wiping is too extreme.
