"Technical Pacifist - Many examples such as Batman, but there is also Dove of "Hawk and Dove", who is perhaps the only seriously pacifist superhero. No, really, the worst he ever does is judo flip someone... and he apologizes for it."

Dove is still much less of a wuss then his earlier comic alternate. He'll at least fight back. And if the bad guys attack someone with low-level super-strength and -speed, they're asking for much worse then Dove's willing to dish out. The way Dove fights, anyone attacking him gets proportional to what they put out.

I am proposing we add an entry for Punch Clock Villain for the Ultra-humanite in the Injustice League episode - also note the Christmas episode in which he helps to make toys for kids with Flash. Even the Flash says he isn't that much of a villain. For your conisderation please.

Just to add an additional justification, note that Ultra Humanite was bought off from being on the Injust League's side by a donation - to the music charity of his choice. He really is there only for the money.

Regardig the Moral Event Horizon listed on this page, I'm getting a bit wearied of continuously re-adding it when people delete it. I can't blame anybody for deleting it, it is a YMMV trope that generally should not be included on a works main page, but in this instance it was deliberately used by the writers for its express purpose (That is, the writers had the characters perform an action for the precise reason that they wanted viewers to see them as irredeemably evil). It's not an instance of varying mileage, since it's not about what I or you think of the characters, but of its express use as a storytelling device, which is what separates a trope from a YMMV trope (i.e. a trope is something that the work does for a specific purpose, whereas a YMMV trope is something that the audience does in reaction to the work).

Is there some way of marking the trope as non-YMMV on this page, so that when you're editing it the page doesn't say "Please move this to the YMMV page" on the top?

Not sure - is it something in-universe or Wordof God ? You might want to try flagging with either to see if this stops the edit warring

Here's a site that might help: http://dcanimated.wikia.com/wiki/DCAU_Wiki

It contains episode synopsis and quotes from the folks who worked on the show(s), including many lifted straight from the interviews on the DVD collections.
