* GrowingTheBeard: Once Warren Ellis took over.
* HarsherInHindsight: During the new 52's end of the first version of Stormwatch, Harry threatens that without him, Stormwatch won't last another year tops. Sure enough, less than a year later, and the series' cancellation was announced.
* MyRealDaddy: Although Jim Lee was the original creator and writer, the series is considered by most to have [[GrowingTheBeard Grown the Beard]] during WarrenEllis's run. Hell, the collected volumes ''start'' with Ellis' run.
* UnfortunateImplications: There was a planned redesign of Crazy Jane from ''DoomPatrol'' as a member for Paul Cornell's run on the post-Flashpoint book which made her look more like a SuicideGirl. The issue with this is that Jane is a mentally ill woman with over 80 split personalities which manifested as a result of horrific sexual abuse she suffered from her father when she was a little girl and again from a homeless man when she was an adult. The redesign essentially sexualized a woman whose broken mindset stemmed from rape and sexual abuse, and while some of Jane's alternate personalities were very sexual in nature (Sex Bomb and Scarlet Harlot) these were not default aspects of her main personality nor were the sexual personalities considered healthy outlets.
