** The opening pages to Villains United which shows a montage of different supervillains agreeing to join the Society, only for the final panel to show Catman saying "No". Dr Psycho is furious at the refusal, stating that they cant have CATMAN of all people turn them down. Catman basically tells him to fuck off. Talia Al Ghul is impressed with his transormation.

*** How Catman deals with Dr. Psycho threatening him: He doesn't care, as even if Psycho does manage to kill him his powers don't work on animals and Catman's pride of lions will tear him to pieces. He then informs them that it doesn't matter what he says, as the world continues on whether he lives or dies.

* Catman taking down Captain Nazi during the Six's imprisonment and torture by the Society. Keep in mind, Captain Nazi is a high-tier supervillain who's gone toe to toe with CaptainMarvel. How does Catman take him down? [[EyeScream Jabs a handful of syringes full of pain-enchancing drugs in his eyes]]. Before that, he also beat the TortureTechnician the Crime Doctor into a coma with a metal table.

* When the Six go to break Tarantula out of Alcatraz, Catman takes on the job of distracting Franchise/{{Batman}} long enough for them to get away with it. A fight predictably breaks out and they fight on even terms for quite some time before Catman decides he's done enough and the two of them just call it off. We repeat: Catman fought on even terms with '''Batman!'''

* Volume 4 has LadyShiva fight Strix in single combat. As Shiva's page indicates, most other martial artists are straight-up shown to be Shiva's inferior, needing to surprise Shiva to even land a punch. Strix breaks Shiva's arm, marking them as near-equals.


* When the Secret Six was first put together in ''Villains United'' they were nothing more than a group of C and D-List villains no one took seriously or cared about. By the last issue of the series, practically every A and B-List superhero has been called in to stop them. '''DAMN'''.

* During the Hell story arc, Liana, Scandal's girlfriend, has been kidnapped by a nutjob former client called Randall who plans to "deprogram" her. One of his methods includes pouring hot sauce into her eyes, which he also did to himself in the first part. The thing is, Liana will not break. Oh sure she cries, but she won't admit she's a horrible person, or a sinner, just to please this psychopath. She even tells him off in the middle of it, saying he's not fit to breath the air of the sex workers he so vehemently believes are evil. And when the Six finally save her, and give her the choice of ending Randall's miserable life, Liana says "no". Because even if Randall doesn't have a relationship with God, she does.
