*** Yes, magic. Plus, it seemed like Clark was wearing the remains of his Superman suit all along, so it would have been easy for it to be reconstructed fully through magic.

Added DiffLines:

** Magic... for some reason that raises more questions than answers.

[[folder:Where did Superman's costume come from?]]
*Clark was dressed in civilian clothing while on Earth up until he dons a Lexosuit before heading to Apokolips. When Darkseid destroys the suit, it looks like Clark isn't wearing anything underneath it. When Clark breaks free of Trigon's possession, he suddenly materializes the Superman suit. Uh, what? Where in the hell did it come from?

[[folder:Durability of the Central Power Battery]]
* The Central Power Battery on Oa is easily destroyed by a chuck of Earth's magma falling on it, killing John Stewart who was in front of it. His Green Lantern ring is somehow unscathed. You would think the power source of one of the most powerful weapons in the universe would be made of more sterner stuff.


** Recharging the ring would have given a power boost, and John Stewart is possessed with unlimited will. Unfortunately the new 52 films state that even if you've got great will, unless you're able to think fast and strategize effectively it won't do any good. In Justice League War Batman was able to get the drop on Jordan easily - that's what he did with John.

Added DiffLines:

** Recharging direct from the battery is sometimes portrayed as giving a ''dramatic'' power boost- as in, temporarily reaching near-Ion-host levels of power. Admittedly, not always, but I suspect that's what they were going for. I'm not sure that it would have helped in this case, as [=DCNu=] Darkseid appears to be basically Godzilla, but it would have at least given John a fighting chance.

[[folder:John Stewart's Attempted Recharge]]
* Perhaps someone more familiar with Green Lantern lore could give an answer on this, but if John Stewart HAD managed to recharge his ring via the Central Power Battery on Oa, would it have made a difference? Does that battery in particular grant any sort of boost in power, or heal wounds? Or was it just a valiant effort that would've ended in an inevitable second curbstomp?


** Close to zero. Ignoring Ra's, the only other characters in this continuity to have bathed in the Lazarus Pit were Talia and the Riddler, and in both instances the subject suffered drastic and permanent changes to their psychological states. The former turned colder and sociopathic, whereas the latter became far more unhinged and sadistic. Additionally, these two characters were exposed to the Pit either seconds after their demise (Talia) or while they were still alive (Riddler). Dick was dead for who knows how long before Damian could transport his body, resulting in him coming back as what is essentially an empty shell.

** When Constantine frees Wonder Woman, the process takes at least several seconds and leaves both Diana and himself vulnerable. Given that Diana was fighting all the Furies simultaneously, she simply did not have an ideal opportunity to use the Lasso on them. Presumably, she intended to knock them out first before trying to release them from Darkseid's control.
