->''"'Crossover' brings on the same feeling as reading dark, brooding, overtly sexual fanfic based on a cheerful kids’ cartoon. By which I mean, it completely misses the tone of the original work it’s building upon. The Mirror Universe on [[Series/StarTrekTheOriginalSeries TOS]] was scary and violent, but it definitely wasn’t dark and depressing like it is here. The people who served on the ''ISS Enterprise'' weren’t morose or angst-ridden, and other than, you know, the constant threat of assassination and torture, the Mirror Universe seemed like [[EvilIsCool an exciting place to be.]]"''

->''"Sue Dibny was the wife of Ralph Dibny, the {{Elongated Man}}. The two were always [[HappilyMarried the happy couple]] of the superhero set, with Sue often acting as den mother to the JusticeLeague, and the pair did detective work on the side, like some sort of stretchy [[TheThinMan Nick and Nora Charles]]. Then came the ''ComicBook/IdentityCrisis'' mini-series.\\\
Right off the bat, Sue gets [[StuffedIntoTheFridge horribly burned to death]] in her home. The culprit is unknown, but based on the evidence, the League suspects it to be Dr. Light. Now Doc Light is usually [[HarmlessVillain a D-list villain]], and he actually had his name [[NamesTheSame stolen by a superhero once]], but we find out through a flashback that one day, when Sue was hanging out on the Justice League satellite (by herself, in space), Dr. Light somehow managed to get aboard. Yes, a supervillain had somehow [[SwissCheeseSecurity gained access to the League's high-tech HQ]] (in space), and that was when he decided to rape Sue to within an inch of her life. The League showed up soon after to pull him off of her, but the damage was done, and they had [[MindWipe to blank Sue's memory]] to make her forget it. I wish they could do that to ''my'' memory—when I close my eyes, I keep seeing [[BrainBleach Dr. Light's rolling eyeballs and wagging tongue]] as he violates a minor character who never hurt anybody."''

->''"One consequence of this is the retroactive 'darkening' of superhero comics from bygone days. This is most evident in the now-infamous ''ComicBook/IdentityCrisis'', in which we see an old rape of Sue Dibny, one which [[HandWave never had any impact on the Dibnys themselves]]... Rape was also inserted into [[ComicBook/SpiderMan Felicia Hardy’s]] past and used as a motivation to her becoming the Black Cat. As ugly as these incidents are, they stem from the '[[DarkerAndEdgier grim-’n'-gritty]]' turn comics took in the mid-[[TheEighties 1980s]] as much as the obsession with retconning."''

->''"{{DC}} is going out of its way to try to explain away all the [[TheSilverAgeOfComicBooks lighter moments]] in its history, first with [[IdentityCrisis IDENTITY CRISIS]][='s=] mindwipe explanation for [[NotSoHarmlessVillain the goofy villains]] of the Silver Age, and now with this supposed revelation that the goofier moments of [[JusticeLeagueInternational JUSTICE LEAGUE INTERNATIONAL]] were [[ShooOutTheClowns all just a feint]] by Maxwell Lord to keep them distracted from his real, more sinister agenda. It's as if current DC editorial can't stand the thought that there was ever a lighthearted story in their history, and rather than leaving them alone as a valuable counterpoint to the darkening of the DC universe, they're determined to force them into this new paradigm, whether they fit or not, and no matter what damage is done to the old stories in the process. It'd be one thing to just say that Max went rogue, but to assert that [[EvilAllAlong he was always engaged in this sort of activity]], in direct contradiction to his expressed thoughts when first published? [[VoodooShark Doesn't work for me,]] and makes me buy into the whole premise all the less."''
