* ValuesDissonance: The original series featured a ''lot'' of gratuitous fanservice involving Caitlin, Roxy, and Sarah, despite all three of them being teenagers. This didn't get much attention back in the 90's, particularly since the series was outside of the Big Two comic companies, but it's probably highly unlikely that someone could get away with something like the Music/JanetJackson parody cover (featuring a topless Fairchild being groped from behind by Grunge) nowadays.

** The original series' handling of Rainmaker's sexuality left a lot to be desired. Despite being explicitly lesbian, she was never given a female love interest, but was instead given at least two male love interests, and eventually Scott Lobdell retconned her as being bisexual so that he could pair her with Burnout.

* BestKnownForTheFanservice: Everyone remembers Fairchild super legs, and Rainmaker who kissed Fairchild.
* BizarroEpisode: The Gen 13 ABC arc featured cameos by everyone from {{Wolverine}} to ComicBook/{{Spawn}} to Franchise/{{Archie|Comics}} to ComicBook/{{Bone}} to the Franchise/{{Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles}} (the latter of whom are getting sick of their overwhelming success and popularity and would like to go back to just being independent comic book characters).

* EnsembleDarkhorse: The [=DV8=], as of their mini-series, ''Gods and Monsters''. The series has been almost universally praised, and is a big step up from their former role as PsychoRangers to the Gen13, giving them all decent characterizations, beyond that of "sociopath/monster".

Added DiffLines:

* ReplacementScrappy: The Claremont-era team were hated before they even premiered due to Wildstorm ordering the original team to be killed off to make room for them. Once the team made its debut, they were hated even more for being a bunch of ethnic stereotypes.

* HilariousInHindsight: The climax of "Magical Drama Queen Roxy" features Freefall's dream world being deconstructed and falling apart around her. In the middle of all this, she crashes into swimming pool where she encounters Leonardo DiCaprio who is fully aware of what's going on around him. The comic was written in 1998.

* DesignatedProtagonistSyndrome: Burnout was intended to be the series protagonist; instead, he came off as the least interesting character and was usually pushed into the background in favour of the girls.
