Fridge: Justice League of America
Fridge Brilliance
  • During Grant Morrison's run on JLA, the Ultramarines were introduced as a "proactive" superhuman fighting force, which eventually became a global peacekeeping force. As an apparent part of Morrison's Take That against the Dark Age, the Ultramarines are told, after their flying fortress is devastated by Gorilla Grodd, that their proactive stance doesn't work, and why. Angakkuq only recently realized that they were being set up for this purpose. The name of the flying fortress, essentially a floating city, was Superbia. This appears at first glance to be a somewhat-uncreative name for a micronation run by superhumans, but in fact, it's Latin. Latin for "Pride". Y'know, as in "goes before a fall"? Genius.
