* WhatDoYouMeanItsNotSymbolic: [[spoiler: As Marcus plunges the superhero world in the Dark Age, a lone silhouette of him is shown. The pose is almost exactly the same as the one on the iconic ''ComicBook/BatmanTheDarkKnightReturns'' first issue cover.]]

Added DiffLines:

** Shona Shane is a likely reference to the original {{Batwoman}} Kathy Kane, especially since Shona used to be an ally of Professor Night called Lady Day.


Added DiffLines:

* StuffedInTheFridge: Riptide's death is what gets the plot going. She doesn't even actually appear in the series until ''after'' she dies.


Once upon a time, there was a man called Creator/RobLiefeld. Near the end of UsefulNotes/TheDarkAgeOfComicBooks, his comics began to sell poorly. And there was another man -- Creator/AlanMoore. He felt guilty, because [[ComicBook/TheKillingJoke a couple]] [[ComicBook/{{Watchmen}} of his comics]] drastically changed the industry, when everybody wanted to do something like him, thus creating the Dark Age. Those two men met and saw great opportunity with each other. Everything with Moore's name on it was selling, so Liefeld could save his company by hiring him. On the other hand all of Liefeld's heroes were [[CaptainErsatz copies]] of DC/Marvel characters or teams, and Moore got an idea how to use them to appeal to classic comics fans. At first, they started slowly; Moore got ComicBook/{{Supreme}} and turned him into a living love letter to SilverAge Franchise/{{Superman}}. It worked, so Moore got his hands on all Liefeld's characters. And this is when this story comes to life.
