YMMV: The Last Son
  • Complete Monster: Darkseid.
    • Apocalypse, Selene, the Joker...the list goes on.
  • Crossover Ship: J'onn J'onzz and Mystique.
  • Magnificent Bastard: General Zod
  • Moral Event Horizon: Arcade. Kidnapping his classmates: bad. Teaming up with the Joker: really bad. Murder of his parents: Moral Event Horizon.
    • The Dheronians crossed it when they used Apokoliptian technology to destroy Krypton.
    • Cadmus and HYDRA as a whole crossed it when they, on nonconsecutive occasions, kidnapped Power Girl and tried to force her, via torture, to give them access to Kryptonian technology.
    • Cameron Hodge's Establishing Character Moment is shooting a Mutant flight attendant For the Evulz.
  • Narm / Narm Charm: yo-yo's back and forth between these, with the slightly cartoony and over the top narration and the generally cheesy nature of some of the dialogue, particularly in the earlier stories.
  • Strawman Has a Point: Robert Kelly and Nick Fury had their reservations about Superman and later General Zod, which the latter came out true in the end when he is at command of Sentrius.
  • What an Idiot: Duncan stupidly punched Superman in the face when it was clear his attempts at racist bullying weren't working...and broke his hand in the process while Superman was completely unfazed.
    • Cadmus fiddles with a piece of Kryptonian technology despite not knowing anything about it, and end up nearly dragging the Earth into a black hole while also causing the release of General Zod.
    • The Friends of Humanity in general fall into this trope due to several factors, including countless examples of Bullying a Dragon, having no members within their ranks who can match the heavy-hitters of the Justice League in a fight, severely overestimating humanity's opinion of them, having comparatively primitive weaponry, and being overall dumbasses in general. Really, it's a wonder how they lasted as long as they did when, compared to the Big Bads of the series, they're nothing but a joke.
