Added DiffLines:

* ContinuityNod: Miss Martian notes that one of the gods of Mars is L'Zoril. This is the Martian name for [[ComicBook/TheSandman Dream of the Endless]], as we discovered early in his series.


* DarkerAndEdgier: The series was an attempt to make the Justice League proactive and, well, edgier. This has been done before (''Justice League Detroit'', ''Justice League Task Force'', ''Extreme Justice''), and has ''certainly'' been done better (''Justice League Elite'').

* PlotHole: Donna Troy is [[http://tylermoody.webs.com/wtf.jpg clearly shown]] tearing Prometheus's helmet into several pieces, yet barely a page later it's fully repaired and ''back on his head.'' Either bad writing or [[LazyArtist the artist forgot what he drew.]]

* ArtisticLicenseAstronomy: Green Lantern and Green Arrow fly through an asteroid thicket, despite the fact that they traveled from Earth orbit to the surface, where logically there should be no asteroids.

Added DiffLines:



* InfantImmortality: Averted. [[spoiler:Poor Lian...]]


* BackForTheDead: The book pulls ''a lot'' of characters who had not been seen or mentioned for years (sometimes decades) back for the sole purposes of killing them off. Maybe most egregiously, TheThreeStooges {{Expy}} Winky, Blinky and Noddy, who had gotten exactly one mention since 1947, and were [[BusCrash killed offscreen]].

'''(32 Drinks)'''

Added DiffLines:

* StupidityInducingAttack: Technically invoked with Prometheus; recognising that it would be impossible to contain him in conventional prisons, Batman and J'onn J'onzz arrange to trap Prometheus by reducing him to a mentally disabled state, which he only escapes after ''Final Crisis'' when J'onzz is killed.


* CoversAlwaysLie: See ComicBook/LexLuthor, SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker, Sinestro, Poison Ivy, and Grodd on the cover image up top? None of them show up. At all.

Added DiffLines:

** Also "Blood Pack", a "new" team made up of old Dark-and-Bronze-age characters.
** ''And'' Preston Payne, the [[LegacyCharacter third]] Clayface. Notable in that he serves as a SacrificialLamb for the B-list modern Clayface, as the character (last seen in a 1994 comic) is turned into an {{Expy}} of the more recent version as part of a trap, then [[YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness unceremoniously killed off]] to prove the villain's vileness (just in case the last half-dozen killings hadn't gotten it across).

* TakeThat: The run, likely by coincidence, has a few unseemly remarks on characters written by GailSimone. One notable example being an implication that Hal Jordan had a drunken threesome with Huntress and Lady Blackhawk of the ''ComicBook/BirdsOfPrey''. Gail later shot down the implication in issue #6 of the new Birds ongoing, with the revelation that [[spoiler:Hal just got drunk and passed out]].

* NewPowersAsThePlotDemands: Captain Marvel's lightning usually just changes him from his civilian form to superhero, and can be used offensively against people with a vulnerability to magic, e.g. Supergirl, and then suddenly he can use it to make a shield, protecting people (including Supergirl) from an explosion. Justified since [[spoiler: he's Prometheus and it's not the same magic.]]

* AdvertisedExtra: You see how that pic up there features Batwoman? Yeah, she's not in this series, really. She shows up every now and then, but never gets involved in the main plot.
