* ValuesDissonance: The degree to which Al Pratt was bullied about his short stature in TheGoldenAgeOfComicBooks is a little less understandable these days. Inverted in TheSilverAgeOfComicBooks, where Jean Loring's refusal to marry Ray Palmer until she'd gotten a good start on her career was intended to be an unusual romantic obstacle at the time of publication but makes her a rather normal career woman in today's terms. (Of course, the stated reason Jean wants to have a career first is because she anticipates that she'll quit to StayInTheKitchen once she's actually married.)

* DorkAge: For a short while in the 1990s, Ray was de-aged to a teenager and was placed in charge of a new incarnation of the Comicbook/TeenTitans. Fans reacted poorly, the ''Titans'' series was quickly cancelled, and Ray's de-aging was quickly undone.

** Ryan Choi usurped Palmer's Woobie status after he was dragged through an entire issue of being murdered by a group of C-List villains led by Deathstroke all to show how dangerous they were, and then later having his body delivered to Dwarfstar in a matchbox.
