* FridgeBrilliance - Near the end of the series Elijah discovers that their universe is actually two dimensional at its foundation, and their perceived third dimension is a sort of unreal hologram or projection. Which is precisely true: at its base ''Planetary'' is two dimensional images printed on paper, and their perceived existence only takes place when the reader projects them into his or her mind.
** Related FridgeHorror: Unfortunately, the [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Holographic_principle holographic principle]] in RealLife quantum physics states exactly the same about our own universe: there is no way to distinguish a portion of 3D space from an hologram projected on his confines. We could all be in a comic,or a movie, and we would not realize it anymore than the characters of Planetary do.
*** We could all be NPC in VideoGame/GrandTheftAuto XXXV, for what we know, and our God would a 14yrs old bored kid. It [[GodIsEvil makes sense]].
* More FridgeBrilliance - in issue 8, almost all the storylines mentioned by the deconstructed Superman analogue are stories that were actually printed in the Dark Age, and happened to either Superman or Miracleman.
* Further FridgeBrilliance: Jakita, the only woman among the main characters, is presented as pure sex in a leather catsuit, right? But read the comic carefully and note she ''never'' shows even the tiniest bit skin beyond a rather modest decoupage, and is ''never'' suggested to have the slightest sexual or romantic interest in another person besides Jack Carter, with whom she doesn't exactly spend a lot of time. There's a huge subversion of the whole LoveInterest/ Sex Object paradigm going on right under our noses.
