YMMV: Justice

The comic:

  • Crazy Awesome: A talking psychic gorilla wearing a Green Lantern Ring on his foot? YES!!
  • Fetish Fuel: Black Canary in lingerie. Poison Ivy completely nude except for some leaves covering her goody-bits.
  • Narm: While Aquaman's turn to Papa Wolf can be classified as badass, one can't help but have flashbacks to Mel Gibson in Ransom when he's searching for Braniac.
  • Uncanny Valley: As with all of Ross' works.
  • What an Idiot: The Riddler flees into the worst possible nightclub.
    Batman: (thinking) The Riddler should have known better than to try to escape through a place called The Batcave.

The band:

  • Covered Up: Their remix of Simian's "Never Be Alone" is far more iconic than the original.
  • Fridge Brilliance: In "Phantom Part 1.5"; "Aquatic Dance" by Vangelus and then all of the sudden : "Do the D.A.N.C.E, do the D.A.N.C.E!"
    • "Ohio" from Audio, Video, Disco seems a bit odd at first...a bunch of random American place names in a song by a French group? But then listen to "Orleans" by David Crosby— a song consisting entirely of French place names, sung by an American singer!
  • Ho Yay: As shown in A Cross the Universe and the music video for "Phantom (Part II)", Gaspard and Xavier occasionally kiss before shows.
  • Most Wonderful Sound: The ringing in "Newjack".
  • Nightmare Fuel: The giant, glowing, golden humanoid that appears out of nowhere in the "Civilization" video.
  • Sampled Up: Out of the many samples featured on , the prominent sample featured throughout "Phantom" is from the main theme from Tenebrae.
  • Signature Song: Phantom Part 2, Genesis or D.A.N.C.E. are most likely their best known tracks, though Waters of Nazareth has a number of fans, perhaps due to the Grand Theft Auto effect (in Grand Theft Auto IV).
  • Sophomore Slump: While critical reaction to Audio, Video, Disco, was mostly positive, it was noticeably less lauded than . Fans have been more harsh towards the album, giving it a below average rating on rateyourmusic. This is almost certainly due to the more rock-influenced sound.
  • They Changed It, Now It Sucks: Audio, Video, Disco's drastically different style has alienated some fans, to say the least.
