* 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.
