This whole thing needs to be cleaned up. It's a Karma Houdini ONLY if no comeuppance has taken place and the work is finished, i.e. there's no more opportunity for said comeuppance. But comic books go on and on and on, so until it is wrapped up, there can be no Karma Houdini.

I gave a pass to Moose from Archie Comics because Status Quo Is God in that universe.

I really disagree. If they make it through the end of an arc with no comeuppance, that's good enough for me. Given the Fleeting Demographic Rule and avoiding Cnotinuity Lockout they usually don't try to dig up random karmic backlash for sins way in the past.

Looks like the entry on Superboy-Prime could be deleted. He no longer fits the trope. What's the trope for a long-delayed comeuppance?
