Added DiffLines:

* CrossoverVillainInChief: As with most DC CrisisCrossover stories, the BigBadDuumvirate of Joker and Lex Luthor lead the forces of evil.


* ContrivedCoincidence: [[spoiler:Batman just happens to help the two trapped Justice Leagues in Firestorm out of him at the same time as Black Adam and Sinestro [[CueTheSun bring back the sunlight]].]] However, TropesAreNotBad, as it works well for the RuleOfSymbolism.

Added DiffLines:

* BroughtToYouByTheLetterS: Mazahs' chest insignia is the Shazam lightning bolt but with a [[spoiler:stylized L within]] signifying who he is.


*** In the single panel Kid Flash appears in, he manages to have short blonde hair instead of brown AnimeHair; and the Flash's ChestInsignia [[CaptainObvious on his chest]] when he not only doesn't ''have'' the logo there, but the version on his costume is flipped.

* VoodooShark: The Flash's KryptoniteRing is a lightning rod that Batman got from the future... but there's no mention of how or why he went to the future to get it in the first place. It's meant as a reference to the Legion of Superheroes' infamous lightning roulette which they've used several times over the years, but those adventures never happened thanks to [[CosmicRetcon by the Flash's time travel]] rebooting reality.
** ...At least until Comicbook/{{DC Rebirth}} brought back that continuity...

* HumansAreFlawed: Dr. Magnus believes this, and it's why he creates the ComicBook/MetalMen. [[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming They prove him wrong.]]

** Lex Luthor gradually moves to the side of the angels throughout the series. This is best shown in contrasting the scenes where he deals with Kord Industries; in the first scene, Luthor threatens to kill Kord's CEO if he doesn't hand over the company, while the second scene has Luthor reassure the CEO he is more than capable at handling the company and the LexCorp will no longer be attempting to purchase it. [[spoiler:And since Luthor did save the world, he gets a shot to join the Justice League.]]

Added DiffLines:

** As the story goes on, Sinestro and Black Adam seem to bond over their similar philosophies. This extends beyond ‘’Forever Evil’’ and is brought up again in Sinestro’s solo title.

Added DiffLines:

* AdaptationalVillainy: [[spoiler: The original Alexander Luthor was the only true hero on Earth 3. The version that appears here claims to be a hero, but is really just as villainous as the Crime Syndicate he fights against.]]


** Also, in the Crime Syndicate, Owlman does not aim to be evil, only to have control over the world and order, and has a FreudianExcuse in the form of his mother's abuse. And Ultraman, who also had an extremely abusive childhood and ultimately just wanted to stop the GreaterScopeVillain from doing any more damage.

** According to Justice League Issue 24, Ultraman can technically be considered this. While he is definitely evil, it is because he considers himself NecessarilyEvil to make sure that, unlike Earth 3, Prime Earth will be able to survive whatever destroyed their home world.


* RedemptionRejection: The villains are granted full pardons for their help in defeating the Crime Syndicate but only Luthor and Cold accept it. Sinestro and Black Adam openly [[EvilLaugh laugh]] at the idea.



%%* SealedGoodInACan: The Justice League and Justice League of America are trapped in Firestorm's matrix.
