* CompleteMonster: [[BigBad Krona]] is a former Oan [[MadScientist scientist]] and [[ItsAllAboutMe callous egomaniac]] who desires to learn the secrets of the universe, and later goes on to destroy countless universes to discover their creation. Arriving in the Marvel Universe, he makes a bet with the Grandmaster, to put the heroes from their universes against each other to collect a dozen cosmic items. When Krona loses, he reacts by fatally torturing the Grandmaster, before summoning ComicBook/{{Galactus}} and killing him in a fit of rage. Using Galactus's corpse as a new base of operations, Krona learns of the sentience of the two worlds--Eternity and Kismet--trapping the two beings together to learn their secrets. When Metron calls out Krona for caring about conquest as opposed to knowledge, Krona eventually admits to this. Hoping to recreate Galactus's origins with himself in his stead, Krona plans on forcing the Marvel and DC Universes together to [[OmnicidalManiac destroy them both]] and start a new Big Bang.

* DorkAge: Leave it to Creator/KurtBusiek to make a compelling story point out of these. In the third chapter, the heroes are in a happy [[UsefulNotes/TheSilverAgeOfComicBooks Silver Age]]-style two-earth universe, and once they finally realize that this is just a distraction as the Earths destroy each other, they ask to see the worlds the way they should be. Each character sees the {{Face Heel Turn}}s, {{Heroic Sacrifice}}s, {{Suspiciously Similar Substitute}}s, and WithGreatPowerComesGreatInsanity that they will experience in the "correct" universe. They are horrified and initially consider the selfish idea of just leaving the Earths as is. Finally Hal Jordan, who arguably has the most to lose, tells everybody that they don't have the right to play God with the Earths (which, ironically, was the root of his own DorkAge), and the heroes agree to restore everything that was, both good and bad.

Added DiffLines:

** [[spoiler: Darkseid wearing the Infinity Gauntlet... fortunately, it doesn't work in the DCU.]]


* {{HSQ}}: This whole series is made of these.
** Thor hits Superman with his hammer, Supes ''catches'' it.
** Krona defeats Galactus... And then ''builds a house out of him.''
** The Epic Battle scenes are pretty incredible too, especially for hardcore fans (one panel shows Superman going one-on-one with Count Nefaria)
** Parallax briefly returns, and thankfully, he's not around long enough to do his unique brand of damage.
