* SpoilerCover: The cover to Issue #34 outright warns the reader to "Beware [[spoiler:Liseth!" At that point, though, she hadn't been shown to be anything other than a sweet young idealist. It's not until four issues later that she reveals herself to a murderous AbsoluteXenophobe]].


** [[spoiler:While wearing multiple Power Rings isn't unprecedented in this Franchise, Issue 30 still has a seeming impossible feat undergone by Simon once again. After starting the "Out of Time" arc off having his Power Ring destroyed, with only a few tiny shards embedded in his arm remaining of it, he and Jessica are thrown back in time and Simon has to spend the majority of the arc feeling helpless and relying on Jessica for pretty much everything. Come the climax of the arc, the first Green Lantern fledglings take the battle to the Volthoom of the past, [[CurbstompBattle who curbstomps them all]], completely killing 3 of them. Volthoom has Jessica in his sights next, and a Ringless and scared Simon goes to fisticuffs Volthoom. He manages to get a few clean hits in, catching Volthoom off guard, which is [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome feat-worthy in itself]], but the moment really happens right after. Volthoom goes after Simon instead of Jessica, but the courage and Willpower he showed standing up to Volthoom attracts 4 of the first 7 Green Lantern Power Rings to his fingertips![[note]]One of the 4 Rings came from a previous wielder who burned herself to death overflowing with Willpower, due to the prototype Rings not having a limiter to them.[[/note]] To place this in perspective, Simon ends the 30th issue having gone from helpless and Ringless to successfully attracting and wielding not ''1'', but ''4'' of the first and most powerful Green Lantern Rings ever created. Rings that do not have a limiter to their Willpower accumulation (which is dangerous due to a serious risk of internal burnout and external explosion from unskilled bearers). And he now has ''4 of them''!]]

** During the 'Superhuman Trafficking'' arc, [[The Lanterns apprehend a member of the ComicBook/OmegaMen, who leads them to Garnet AKA Hellhole. Direct attention is called to how Hellhole has no authority ''at all'', let alone Corps presence. It ''did'' have a Lantern, Jack T. Chance, but he died during the ComicBook/SinestroCorpsWar, with the Guardians apparently writing the whole damn sector off afterwards]].

* BothSidesHaveAPoint: Simon and Batman's conflict over the former carrying a gun. Simon is right in that, [[FreudianExcuse personal trauma]] aside, it's arbitrary and hypocritical to disdain carrying a gun when Batman has lethal armaments much more dangerous like missiles and bombs at his disposal. Batman is right in that Simon doesn't ''need'' a gun for the purported purpose of backup if the ring isn't enough; firstly, because anything that can take the ring will be invulnerable to a gun, secondly the ring runs on his confidence so having a crutch like that makes it a self-fulfilling prophecy that it'll fail.

* AmoralAttorney: Singularity Jain is this trope in the extreme, an alien [[TheBaroness Baroness]] lawyer who is a living black hole. She ropes her clients (usually desperate criminals) into owing her favors, making them kill people for her, and if they don't go through with it it's heavily implied she ''eats'' them, being a living black hole.
