** Some were only revealed later. Most of those that become ComicBook/WonderWoman's command crew after she is abducted by the Sangtee Empire were former members of the Alien Alliance. The Empire caught quite a few Durlans and Khunds while they were on their way home and a few invaders that were fleeing their own people in the aftermath (the Dominator Sakritt and Daxamite "Julia") of the failed invasion.

** Inverted with the Khunds who are pretty much pink to yellow [[Franchise/StarTrek Klingons]] but debuted three years before ''Series/StarTrekTheOriginalSeries''.
** Inverted with the Durlans, who are essentially the same as the more popular Skrulls but predate their first appearance by several decades ([[ComicBook/LegionOfSuperHeroes Reep Dagle]] debuted in 1960), just were rarely in the role of invaders until this series. The Skrulls would debut a month later in Marvel's ''ComicBook/SecretInvasion''.

Added DiffLines:

* DividedWeFall: The Durlans try to implement this, but while there is a great deal of distrust going around once people realize some their supposed allies are Durlan impersonators most groups are able to operate effectively anyway.


Added DiffLines:

The series ''[[ComicBook/LEGIONDCComics L.E.G.I.O.N.]]'' (about a mercenary group that protected the galaxy in the Corps' absence) was spun off from the crossover. It also launched the series of [[ComicBook/JusticeLeagueInternational Justice League Europe]] and the Daxamite superhero Valor (also known as [[ComicBook/LegionOfSuperHeroes Mon-El]]). (A team called The Blasters was introduced by the crossover and given a one-shot special, but never had its own series.)

* AlienInvasion: An alliance of extraterrestrials invade earth, prompted by the supposed potential danger posed by the adaptability and powers inherent in the meta-gene present in some humans.

* EvilIsPetty: Part of what stopped the invasion was the various races sniping at each other, helped along by Deadman possessing some.

* FantasticRacism: Part of the reason for the alliance was... that aliens don't like how we look. The Daxamites and Thanagarians resembled Earth's humans, but they had no genetic variance eg. they all look alike.
* HeroicSacrifice: One of the Daxamite observers for the alien alliance, who died of lead poisoning so he could reach a transmitter to tell his homeworld to throw in on Earth's side. (At the time, the Daxamite was the father of Lar Gand, a.k.a. [[ComicBook/LegionOfSuperHeroes Mon-El]]; this has probably been {{retcon}}ned.)

alike. It's actually fascinating that the Daxamites were willing to ally with anyone given their traditionally extremely xenophobic culture.
* FindingJudas: Several groups, including the US military, start realizing they've been infiltrated by Durlans impersonating personnel. Franchise/WonderWoman's lasso and inherent sense of when she's being lied to gives her a leg up on figuring out who is really who they claim to be, which is helpful when ComicBook/SteveTrevor ends up abducted and impersonated.
* DefectorFromDecadence:
** Any Dominator (very few) or Durlan that switches sides to aid the humans.

* GoodLipsEvilJaws: The Dominators are not nice and have a bunch of long sharp pointy teeth constantly exposed since they have no lips to cover them with.

* LeeroyJenkins: The Khunds' battlelust ends up being less than benificiary for their allies.



** The Daxamite gain powers on Earth similar to Superman's, apparently being distant cousins of Kryptonians. However they were also vulnerable to lead-based pollution, and only survived because Earth's heroes saved them.

*** {{Metamorpho}} actually came back from the dead because of it. Notable not only in that it implied his powers were genetic rather than mystic, but also that the gene bomb could work on the dead.

* NoNeedForNames: Dominators and a certain subculture of Durlans do not use names, but rebellious members of each, such as the Dominator [[ComicBook/WonderWoman1987 Sakritt]] do adopt names as part of their rebellion.



* ShapeshifterDefaultForm: Durlans have a default form as a bald orange humanoid with pointy ears and a pair of antenna. Those whose families were badly effected by the fallout from the "Six-Minute War" have essentially lost their default and instead look like a shifting writhing inconsistent mass of brown and grey tentacles in their "default" form.

* VoluntaryShapeshifting: Durlans of course, though as always they're under threat of being mode-locked in their current forms and the forms of those who came out the worst from Durla's "Six-Minute War" are more unstable.
