* ScrewedByTheNetwork: The early-'90s series, because DC editorial believed that no one wanted to read about senior citizen superheroes. David Goyer and Geoff Johns later proved them wrong.
* WhatCouldHaveBeen: Magog's role as the JSA "All-Stars" trainer/field leader was originally going to be ComicBook/{{Hawkman}}. It's not hard to see the parallels or the massive character shift he undertook.
** "The Justice Society Returns!" was an event used to bring attention to the revived series using new #1s of old comics (such as All-Star Comics and Adventure Comics). These were also purportedly used as an audition piece to see who would take over as David Goyer's co-writer after James Robinson left. Creator/GeoffJohns eventually won out, but some of the others included Tom Peyer, Creator/MarkWaid, Ron Marz, Tony Bedard and Creator/ChuckDixon.
