Earth 27 is a project by Deviantartist Roysovitch following a tumultuous event in his life. In collaboration with the DeviantArt illustrator (and fellow comic fan) Phil Cho, he presents Earth 27 in the form of Oracle Files, which showcase individual superheroes in the DCU, pulling inspiration from various comics, events, movies, video games, and TV shows.

The official GoFundMe page here keeps the project afloat through donations. The Oracle Files and other lore focused content can be found on Roy's DeviantArt page here.

Due to the large scale of this growing universe, some form of Wiki Magic (especially in regards to the character page) would be greatly appreciated.

This work contains examples of:

  • Archnemesis Dad: Plenty. Jackson Hyde/Aqualad II and Black Manta, Kara Zor-El and Zor-El/Grandmaster, Chris Kent/Lor-Zod/Zenith and Dru-Zod, Cassandra Cain/Black Bat and David Cain/The Swiss, Darkseid and Orion, etc.
  • Adaptational Badass: Mystery Inc., yes, really. Fred is a former Army Ranger, Velma has doctorates on several fields, Daphne honed her martial art skills, Shaggy is an (unpolished) amateur sorcerer and Scooby Doo is his familiar.
    • Same goes to the Captain Planet and the Planeteers, with the former was once a Titan known as Iapetus in the greek mythology.
  • Adaptational Dye Job:
    • Jason Todd isn't usually depicted with red hair, but he has it on Earth-27 as a call-back to his pre-Crisis days.
    • Dick Grayson and Cassandra Cain have brown hair instead of black to add more variety to the coloring.
    • Similarly, Earth-27 Ronnie Raymond went from auburn to black to go with his new interpretation as a Native American.
    • Artemis's Blonde Hair is also noticeable dyed with her roots showing her natural color.
    • Chloe Sullivan has brunette hair rather than blonde hair as Word of God has stated he wants Chloe separated from her Smallville actress Allison Mack in the light of her controversy.
  • Adaptational Heroism:
      Advertisement:
    • Giganta is a hero and a member of Young Justice. She still doesn't like Wonder Woman, though.
    • Roy was very quick to make it clear that this Tarantula is not a rapist.
    • Not only Terra is a true member of the Titans, and she's not Slade's agent, she even sacrifices herself to stop Deathstroke (she got better).
  • Adaptation Name Change: Artemis of Bana-Mighdall is changed to Andraste to avoid confusion with the Greek goddess (in which Roy says it didn't make sense for her being named after her given that the Egyptian Bana-Mighdall didn't worship the Greek Gods like normal Amazons) and Artemis Crock aka Tigress.
  • Adaptational Nationality:
    • Deadman is (or was) a Brit.
    • Dawn and Holly Granger (the successors of Hank and Don Hall) are Irish, rather than American and English.
    • Andraste (Artemis of Bana-Mighdall) is Celtic rather than Egyptian.
  • Adaptation Origin Connection:
    • The Titanians (Saturn Girl's race) are a colony created from Martians and Amazonians prisoners exiled from Saturn after a agreedment of both sides and later got infected by a plague that caused their green skin turn red and usually caused the loss of their psionic abilities.
    • The Foot Clan were a branch to the League Of Assassins in Earth-27. the Foot was overseen by two prominent followers of Ra's al Ghul. The purpose of the Hands was to do the Head's bidding, but the Foot kept the Demon standing and was also tasked to invest in technology and research to keep the League modern and secure. One of the Foot's leader was Hamato Yoshi, an honorable man who followed Ra's al Ghul as he believed that the world was in peril and sacrifices needed to be to ensure the good of all. Yoshi was opposed by his partner, Oroku Saki who sought power and often used fear and violence to secure it.
    • The Kryptonians are heavily tied to the Kherans. Possibly for this reason, Kherans chose to stage an experimental colony on Krypton, in hopes of finding a cure to their natural infertility. This experiment would ultimately be successful in that regard, but the Kheran Empire abandoned the colony and its colonists when they later discovered the planet's core was highly radioactive.
  • Adaptational Sexuality:
    • Adrian Chase's wife Doris is Chris here.
    • Kaldur'ahm takes cues from both his straight (albeit Ambiguously Bi) Young Justice version and gay Rebirth version by being depicted as bisexual.
    • Eddie Bloomberg aka Red Devil is gay here rather than straight like in the comics.
  • Adaptation Species Change:
    • Volthoom was a Martian Green Lantern in this continuity.
    • Instead of a separate species, White Martians are the result of a plague engineered by Brainiac and Malefic. This led to a planet wide quarantine, with J'onn as one of the few non-infected.
    • Tyra and Brion Markov are Stratans (Atlee's underground race) rather than metahumans. It is speculated that the Markovian Royal Family may have descended from exiled Stratans during the medieval ages.
    • Sylvester Pemberton/Skyman and his daughter Jacqueline Permberton/Gimmix are Human-Fae Hybrid rather than normal humans in the comics due to both share the Fae Blood from the Sheeda queen Gloriana Tenebrae.
  • Adaptational Villainy: Cleveland Brand is a member of the League of Assassins and killed his brother by cutting his heart out.
  • Alternate Self: Averted. Word of God states that no alternate selves will be involved. As such, the backstories and identities for both Power Girl and Supergirl have been changed. Power Girl is the original Supergirl all grown up, while Supergirl II's identity is Mia Kent.
    • Played Straight with the Murums (The walls that protect the Earth-27 from Time Travel and Multiverse shenanigans) saw Arkham XX From Reality X where's she is Arkham X's literal Distaff Counterpart and Fang-Girl from the Reality G.
  • Antagonistic Offspring: Fury to Wonder Woman.
  • Anything That Moves: Thanks to their extremely long lifespans, most Kherans are Omnisexuals.
  • The Atoner: Ronin, after he has the Suit of Sorrows removed.
  • Badass Biker: The Sons of Batman biker gang. Which according to Roy he took big influence to Sons of Anarchy with Jean-Paul Valley look a bit like Jax, but the SOBs and SAMCRO have much different ideologies.
  • Badass Family:
    • The entire Wayne family. And how.
    • The House of El & the Kent family composed with Clark Kent/Kal-El as the current Patriarch with Lois Lane as his mate and Karen Starr/Kara Zor-El as current Matriarch. With Clark having 7 children (two being his half-human clones, one is a full-kryptonian and four being his biological children with Lois). Steel and his niece Arclight, Alex Danvers, Atlee, Thara Ak-Var & Strange Visitor are Honorary True Companion and Krypto as the family pet.
    • The Queen/Drake family (especially Tim being cousins with Dinah and Sara) and by extend of Team Arrow also counts.
    • The Flash Family (primally the Allen/West family) along with Team Flash.
    • The Monitor Family also counts.
    • The Marvel/Vasquez family are also one as they're not blood related but they can kick ass together.
  • Badass Grandpa: This continuity has Bruce in his 40s and still capable of kicking butt.
  • Big "NO!": Oracle when she learns Damian was flirting with her cousin.
  • Brain in a Jar: It is mentioned there is a meta-gene that allows the brain to be preserved outside the body. The Brain, Robotman, Metallo and Winslow Schott are examples.
  • Breaking the Fellowship:
    • The death of Jason Todd ended up leading to the dissolution of the original Titans and even the first Justice League.
    • The Bat Family breaks apart after Tim Drake's death by the Joker in 2024, causing Bruce and Selina's marriage to sour, where Selina takes her daughter and moves out, Stephanie Drake leaves Gotham with her child. Jason Todd leaves to travel the world, Damian goes on a killing spree, killing the Jokerz. Bruce disowns his son, so he goes to his mother Talia Al Ghul. Cassandra Cain tries to take Tim's mantle, but Bruce rejects it. Cassandra leaves Gotham as well.
  • Butt-Monkey: Damian in several of the Voxboxes.
  • Cain and Abel: As many examples here like Aquaman and Ocean Master, Starfire and Blackfire, Greta Hayes/Secret and Billy Hayes/Harm, Batwoman and Red Alice, Vic Sage/The Question I and Victor Zsasz, Ellie MacKay/Immolition and Max MacKay, Boston Brand/Deadman and Cleveland Brand/The Hook, etc.
  • Canon Character All Along: Ambush Bug learns from reading the manual that Doctor Roy Westerman of Arkham Asylum is one. Not the Monitor! That would just be silly.
  • The City Narrows: The Narrows island in Gotham City. Yep, that Narrows. Complete with Arkham Asylum
  • Clingy Jealous Girl: Oracle in regards to Nightwing's interactions with Starfire
  • Comic-Book Fantasy Casting: Several characters resemble some of their more famous appearances.
    • Jon Stewart is designed to resemble Idris Elba, who is often suggested by DC fans to portray Jon in a film.
  • Composite Character: Several, in fact:
    • Julie Madison serves as a past love interest for Bruce and mother of Terry Mc Ginnis
    • Carrie Kelley is Misfit
    • Sarah Essen goes from a brief fling with Gordon to his wife and Barbara’s mom.
    • Doctor Fate is Giovanni Zatara
    • Power Girl and Supergirl are the same person, from the same universe.
    • Clayface is a literal example.
    • Aresia from the DCAU is combined with Hippolyta "Fury" Trevor from Earth 2 to create a whole new villain.
    • Marvin White is Paragon.
    • Cleveland Brand is combined with the Hook.
    • Nyssa al Ghul is combined with Red Claw from Batman: The Animated Series (having that moniker, a similar tattoo, and status as a terrorist) and Sandra Hawke (being the mother of Oliver Queen's son Connor).
    • John Diggle is Guardian, including some character elements of Jim Harper.
    • Wally West and Bart Allen swap codenames, becoming Impulse and Kid Flash respectively.
    • Emiko Queen is Arrowette.
    • Halo is Perdita Zytle, who gets her surname from the 'New 52' version of her uncle Count Vertigo. She gains the identity of Gabrielle Doe in the US after Vertigo takes over Vlatava.
    • Red Tornado is Maxine Hunkel, a metahuman who T. O. Morrow turned into Mister Twister through mechanization. She was turned into the android Red Tornado by Adam Strange and later gained a gynoid body, and then a second one resembling her original self after she regained her lost memories.
    • David Cain is also called The Swiss, who is an old foe of the character Richard Dragon.
    • Jaime Reyes' superhero identity is Silver Scarab instead of Blue Beetle, with the colorization of his suit reflecting this. This is purely a name change to accommodate Ted Kord being the living Blue Beetle and he has no other similarities with the canon Silver Scarabs.
    • Caitlin Snow's heroic identity is Coldsnap, the name of an lesser known, male An Ice Person villain.
    • Kathy Duquesne, Rocky Ballantine, and Sonia Alcana are the Terrible Trio (rather than Batwoman).
    • Max West is combined with Max Mercury and Wallace "Wally" West II.
    • Lisa Snart alias Golden Glider is combined with Roscoe Dillon, the original The Top.
    • Thara-Ak-Var (Flamebird) is combined with Matrix & Linda Danvers, both Supergirls in the Post-Crisis era. Also takes the name of Superwoman, the Alternate Universe Evil Counterpart version of Wonder Woman. She later takes the name of Matrix after joining the Justice League.
    • The Monitor's children (Tattletale, Wild Child & Pipsqueak) are based of the children of Hide And Seek episode of the Teen Titans 2003 animated series. While Mr. Butterbeans resembles Bob, the three children's Not-So-Imaginary Friend.
    • Kitty Kumbata from the Circle of Six is combined with Lynx.
    • Dex-Starr is combined with Stinky, Karen Starr/Power Girl's pet cat in the comics and also Streaky the Supercat.
    • Alexandra DeWitt is combined with Alix Harrower/Bulleteer, sparing her from her infamous death.
    • Gloria Pemberton, Jacqueline Pemberton's grandmother, is combined with Gloriana Tenebrae, Queen of the Sheeda and wife of Melmoth.
  • Cosmic Retcon: The events of Watchmen existed in Earth-27. They would still be the heroes of the 80's (though Roy move them from 1985 to 1989), and their tale would mostly result in the same way that it does in the movie (Roy prefer the movie's ending over the graphic novel's finale) Except with even more devastation. The major cities of the world don't just suffer huge losses, most of the major cities are outright destroyed. So with Earth's major cities gone, this sets the stage for other cities to rise to prominence in the wake of this devastation: Gotham, Metropolis, Gateway City, Star City, Central City, etc.
    • So while that doesn't change much of the heroes' backstories, it does change the setting quite a bit. Manhattan is gone, as are London, Madrid, Berlin, Rio, Mexico City, Los Angeles, Chicago, Toronto, Moscow, Sydney, Lagos, Cape Town, Cairo, Tokyo, Hong Kong, and even Washington, DC. This would give me a firm detachment from the real world and allow Roy to develop a unique world.
  • Crossover: The setting takes some non-DC franchises, namely Scooby-Doo, Captain Planet, and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, and integrates them into the setting. Though Roy has explicitly stated that he plans to only use franchises linked to Warner Bros. in the universe along with DC characters, the Scooby gang and the Planeteers are Warner Bros. works, and the Turtles have had official crossovers with DC as well, hence their planned integration.
  • Curb-Stomp Battle: Nite-Owl and Silk Spectre II utterly thrashed a young Bruce Wayne and Oliver Queen when they were still working for the League of Assassins.
  • Decomposite Character:
    • While in the comics the Crimson Fox was an identity shared by Vivian and Constance D'Aramis, here each sister has their own secret identity.
    • Thea Queen was a composite to Mia Dearden in Arrow but are separate characters one of another. Likewise with Emiko Queen who was also based of Thea in the comics and later in Arrow but here is a different character due to being Oliver's daughter rather than sister.
  • Dysfunctional Family:
    • One would wonder how Bruce manages to take care of all his kids...
    • Diana has a...difficult relationship with her kid, though considering that the man she loved turned out to be an apokoliptan infiltrator that's understandable.
  • Easter Eggs:
  • Everyone Is Related: The entire Al Ghul family tree can feel like this especially having relationship with the Waynes, Queens and Drakes.
  • Everyone Went to School Together:
    • Bruce Wayne, Thomas Elliott and Julie Madison were classmates, while Andrea Beaumont was a year younger.
    • Dick Grayson, Barbara Gordon and Catalina Flores were classmates before they knew of each other's identities. Harley Quinn also attended Brentwood Academy, although a few years ahead of Barbara.
    • Ray Palmer, Felicity Smoak and Cisco Ramon both attended to Ivy University.
    • Lois Lane, Chloe Sullivan and Iris West were part of the same study group during their Freshman year.
  • Eye Scream:
    • Jason Todd's rocking a cybernetic left eye in 2027.
    • Alexandra Kosov, the head of the Odessa Mob in Gotham, sports an cybernetic eye given to her by Roman Sinos. She herself is the one who stabbed her own eye with the scalpel she used to stab her own father's eye, killing him from shock.
  • Evil All Along: Joseph Kane during his tenure as the Heretic.
  • Fire/Ice Duo: The most well known examples are present, such as Firestorm and Coldsnap, Fire and Ice and Captain Cold and Heatwave
  • Gender Flip: The hero Triumph, a man named William McIntyre in the comics, becomes a woman named Wilhelmina.
    • Red Lantern Rankorr is a woman named Jane Moore here.
    • Psycho-Pirate becomes a woman going by Regina Hayden.
    • Dan Cassidy a.k.a the Blue Devil is a woman named Danielle Cassidy.
    • Mark Mardon/Weather Wizard is a woman going by the name of Marcia Marden a.k.a Weather Witch.
  • Green-Eyed Monster: Oracle, when Nightwing and Starfire's relationship comes up.
  • Grey and Grey Morality: The conflict between Kherans and Daemonites is full of grey areas, since they're both ruthless alien empires, and while the Daemonites have a very good reason to hate Kherans, the Daemonites have no problem trying to take over Earth.
  • Groin Attack: Apparently Jason Todd and Roy Harper have a competition of sorts to see who can inflict a surprise hit on the other.
  • Heel–Face Revolving Door: Mr. Freeze does this many times in the Vox boxes, for his main priority is Nora
  • Immortality Bisexuality: Considering there are several immortal or ageless characters, is no surprise many of them no longer care about the gender of their lovers.
  • I'm Standing Right Here: Carol Ferris, Tora Olafsdotter, Mari McCabe and Jessica Cruz talk about how much of an inconsiderate Hal Jordan is for trying to cheat on his girlfriend, while he's flying the plane they're currently at.
  • Intrepid Reporter: Both Vicki Vale and Jack Ryder.
  • I Need a Freaking Drink: This is Oliver Queen's reaction when he realizes the new C.E.O. of LuthorCorp is Talia Al Ghul, to Diana and Steve Trevor's bemusement.
  • Kid Hero All Grown-Up: The Crusaders (Terry McGinnis, Lian Harper, Sam Kane and Lizzie Dahl)are crime-fighters in 2027.
  • Little "No": Also frequently used by Oracle, when people give ideas like renaming the "Birds of Prey" into "Girl Power"
  • Loads and Loads of Characters: It was just supposed to be just the Batman cast, but it expanded and there’s even plans to work on the Beyond verse.
  • Love Triangle: In this universe, Grayson’s love interests are limited to his two most famous ones: Oracle and Starfire
  • Luke, I Am Your Father: Deathstroke is Ronin and his brother Sam's biological father.
  • Married to the Job: The "Alfred" Voxbox has indicated that Bruce is becoming this regarding his love life.
  • Myth Arc: In several of the Voxboxes, there's a linking story adaptation of "The Heart of Hush".
  • Named by the Adaptation:
    • Onomatopoeia is given the real name Kevin Hester.
    • The Key is given the real name Grant Porter.
  • Nice Job Breaking It, Hero!: Apparently, Hal thought it was a good idea to use a space artifact as an engagement ring...
  • Not So Above It All: In the "Roy Harper" Voxbox, Oracle finds Roy and Jason both drunk, wanting to see the Batmobile. She says that Oliver and Helena would be disappointed in both of them... when the later two enter, equally drunk.
  • Oh, Crap!: Oliver has this reaction when he realizes he just cheated on his girlfriend with her own sister, who was under orders from his evil ex-girlfriend.
  • One Steve Limit: With so many characters is no surprise this is averted. There are actually four Thomas in Gotham: Thomas Wayne, Thomas Elliot, Thomas Chatham and Thomas Blake.
    • Slade Wilson happens to have two sons named Joseph (their mothers were cousins).
    • For The Challengers Of The Unknown they are Lauren Drake and Lauren Snyder. Even Attack Lass lampshade this suggesting both Snyder as Lauren 1 and Drake as Lauren 2, both Laurens shot that down.
  • Original Character: There are several of them. The original superheroes so far consist of Spider-Bat (Mark Mish), Ronin (Joseph Kane), Fox (Jack Dahl), and Hotshot (Michael Walsh). The others so far are Joseph Kane's younger brother Sam and Dahl's adoptive daughter Lizzie, who are classmates to a young Terry McGinnis and Lian Harper. More are gradually introduced as the series goes on. This becomes an important plot point. They are the Monitor's secret weapon against the Anti-Monitor.
    • Nathaniel Scofield (Arkham X) is a cross between this, Composite Character and Canon Immigrant. Nathaniel is a mash-up of Red X from the Teen Titans animated series and the titular character from Batman: Arkham Knight with an original identity, backstory and personality.
    • Likewise, the Anti-Monitor has formed his own team of Artifacts, called The Cadre, against the Monitor.
  • Patchwork Fic: Earth 27 is a cross between the pre-Flashpoint DCU, the New 52, the Arrowverse, WildStorm, the DC Animated Universe, Young Justice, the Arkhamverse, Milestone Comics, the Flashpoint Timeline, Watchmen and even Stan Lee's Just Imagine... Stan Lee Creating the DC Universe
  • Promoted to Love Interest: Sort of. Huntress and Jason are dating, but it's handled well.
  • Pungeon Master: Dick and Stephanie, much to Tim and Damian's chagrin.
  • Putting the Band Back Together: With the shutdown of the Justice League of America in 2007, there were two members (the Question and Captain Atom) that chose to band together. Their goal was to create a new Justice League based in their shared home of Hub City. While they did manage to recruit fresh talent from the Titans (Blue Beetle and Booster Gold) and a young Hub City heroine named Nightshade, they never really got their new Justice League off the ground, with the Question ultimately quitting the team just eight months after it was founded in order to relocate to Gotham City.
  • Race Lift:
    • Carter Hall (Hawkman) is African-American, rather than Caucasian.
    • Donna Troy has darker skin than usually depicted.
    • Firefly is African-American as well.
    • Ronnie Raymond is Native American instead of white.
    • Hank and Don Hall (The first Hawk & Dove) are African-American due to being Carter Hall's little brothers.
    • Kid Eternity is Asian instead of Caucasian.
    • Connor Hawke is now mostly Caucasian with some Middle Eastern ancestry on his mother's side, rather than half-white, and black and Korean, due to being Nyssa al Ghul's son.
    • Raven's is one fourth Korean on her human mother's side.
    • Kathy Duquesne is half-Chinese. This is a complicated example since the original DCAU Kathy was a case of But Not Too Black and was theorized to be biracial (but most assumed her unseen mother was Caucasian rather than Chinese).
    • Eve Eden (aka Nightshade) is biracial (half Caucasian and half Asian).
  • Related in the Adaptation:
    • Carrie Kelley is Barbara’s cousin in this adaptation
    • Jesse Quick is now the daughter of Barry Allen. Bart Allen is also changed from Barry's grandson to son which makes him and Jesse siblings.
    • Aresia is now Wonder Woman's daughter with Steppenwolf.
    • Nyssa al Ghul is the mother of Oliver Queen's son Connor.
    • Hank and Don Hall are going to be the younger brothers of Hawkman (Carter Hall).
    • Tough Bunny, the E27 version of Dumb Bunny, is Athena Trevor, cousin of Steve Trevor.
    • Both inverted and played straight with Edward Raymond; he's Ronnie Raymond's stepfather rather than his biological one and is the brother of Roy Raymond, a completely unrelated character from the the Golden Age.
    • Tim Drake and Dinah Drake turn out to be cousins due to a philandering shared grandfather, though this was only figured out later due to the distance between both Drake families.
    • Kathy Duquesne is the niece of Chien Na Wei (AKA China White).
    • Adeline Kane, Slade Wilson's ex-wife is the sister of Jacob Kane and Martha Wayne, making her sons Grant and Joseph the cousins of Bruce Wayne, Kate Kate and Bette Kane.
    • Emiko Queen is now Oliver Queen's daughter instead of his half-sister.
    • Grace Choi, Ryan Choi and Eugene Choi are all half-siblings here.
    • Mia Dearden is Oliver Queen's cousin here.
    • Jade Nguyen and Artemis Cork are half-sisters too.
    • John Stewart is the brother in-law of Jefferson Pierce.
    • Patrick O'Brian/Plastic Man is Ralph & Sue Dibny's son called Patrick Dibny/Plastic Kid
    • Walter Steele is the uncle of Clifford Steele from the Doom Patrol.
    • Cissie King-Jones is the daughter of Oliver Queen and Dinah Lance.
    • Zinda Blake aka Lady Blackhawk is the twin sister of Edward Blake a.k.a The Comedian, meaning that she's also the paternal aunt of Laurie Juspeczyk a.k.a Silk Spectre II.
    • Malcolm Merlyn's mother's Nyssa al Ghul meaning he's the grandson of Ra's al Ghul and Talia being his aunt, Conner Hawke and Mara al Ghul being his half-siblings and also cousins with David Cain, Damian Wayne and Maya Ducard.
  • Seamless Spontaneous Lie: Oracle is pretty good at this, in the "Bruce Wayne" Voxbox, she covers up the fact that she is monitoring her father by saying that she is using a police scanner app to know what's going on (which strictly speaking is barely a lie)
  • Soft Reboot:
    • As of 2018, Earth-27 will have a bit of a restructuring period. by replacing replacing the roles these characters played in their respective VOX appearances with other characters, both brand new and fan favorites. This will require some minor rewrites here and there, but nothing that so massive that a longtime fan would need to actually go back and retread stories they've already read to stay current (but if they chose to do so, they may find a fun nugget or Easter egg here and there).
      • For example previous characters Irie Morgan, Lauren Snyder, Josefina Moreno, Violeta Campos, Billie and Jenny Lee & Brauzhar The Corruptor will be removed and replaced with established character.
      • Hank Henderson will be retired due to his creator's developing an independent comic book series featuring him.
  • Spared by the Adaptation:
    • Sort of. Silver St. Cloud was killed when Onomatopoeia kidnapped her in the comics. In this universe, she was just placed into a coma with her fate unknown.
    • Lian Harper is also a case of this.
    • Ace also survives the E27 version of the events of "Epilogue" and forms a heroic Royal Flush Gang.
    • Kyle Rayner and Alex merely broke up here instead of the infamous original version.
    • Sarah Essen-Gordon survived Earth-27's version of the "No Man's Land" storyline. However, in this scenario she forced into a Sadistic Choice by the Joker to let her mentor, Dave King, die and make her watch. The alternative would've been a dozen kidnapped newborns.
    • Roy has made plain his dislike of Ted's death pre-Flashpoint (and in many other continuities and adaptations that follow suit), and has spared him his oft used tragic end. He even renamed Jaime Reyes' heroic identity into Silver Scarab as a means of including the character without transplanting the name (Jaime inherits his moniker from a deceased Ted most of the time, but Ted's alive and active in Earth-27). Jaime's codename switch pretty much cements Ted's status as spared.
    • Sue Dibny's Infamous rape and death in Identity Crisis does not happen here, she was almost raped before Ralph saved her before both became metahumans by accident as a result of Gingo.
    • Gimmix and The Whip, short lived members of the Seven Soldiers of Victory, manage to survive the confrontation with the Sheeda, although Gimmix was tortured and Whip ended transported somewhere else.
  • Sterility Plague: Kherans afflicted the Daemonites with one of these, leading to Daemonite scientist Arctus, who would be later known as Helspont, to look for a cure on Earth, with the intention of taking it over.
  • The Stinger: Literally called the Stinger, it reveals that not only did Fangirl survive the Bleed, but she has come upon a parallel earth where Batman and Wonder Woman have a daughter, and Lincoln March is not the Mayor of Gotham City. This thanks to the to a whole in the damaged walls that closes of Earth-27 from the other Earths.
  • Tangled Family Tree: The story being in large part based on the DC Universe and being written by a man who claims to actually understand the insanity that is the Wayne family tree, gleefully embraces this trope.
    • Bruce Wayne is the son Thomas Wayne and Martha Wayne nee Kane which makes Jacob and Phillip his uncles and Kate, Elizabeth and Bette his cousins. Then things get complicated, because...
      • His maternal aunt Adeline Kane was first married with Slade Wilson, making Deathstroke his uncle once removed with Grant and Joseph Wilson his cousins.
      • Bruce Wayne has four adopted children: his adopted sons Dick Grayson, Jason Todd, and Tim Drake (the first three Robins), and his adopted daughter Cassandra Cain (the third Batgirl). Cassandra's biological parents are David Cain and Lady Shiva, two of the world's most infamous assassins and Bruce's former teachers. While Dick Grayson's ancestor is William Cobb, the Talon from the Court of Owls.
      • Dick Grayson would later have a daughter with Koriand'r aka Starfire called Mary Grayson/Mariand'r which make Bruce a grandfather.
      • Bruce also has a number of biological children. His son Damian Wayne, the fifth Robin, is the child of Talia Al Ghul, daughter of one of Batman's greatest enemies, Ra's Al-Ghul. He's the biological father of Terry McGinnis the fourth Batman conceived by his former fiancee Julia Madison, and his biological daughter, Helena Wayne, the daughter of Selina Kyle.
      • Him later being married to Selina Kyle who's actually the long lost biological daughter of Carmine Falcone, makes him related to the Falcone mafia.
      • He's also the godfather of Jon Kent, the son Clark Kent and Lois Lane making him tied to the Kents but also the House of El in general.
    • Clark Kent has this happen both in his past (the House of El). You have the Kent Dynasty, with two adopted half-human clones, an adopted son who is the biological child of General Zod, four half-human children with Lois Lane, Superman's cousin Supergirl later Power Girl, Krypto his alien dog, being the father-in-law of Thara Ak-Var, two disowned clones, Alex Danvers, John Henry Irons/Steel with Lana Lang being his fiancee and his niece Natasha Irons/Arclight, Atlee, Strange Visitor being Honorary family members. And also being In-laws with Colonel Sam Lane being his Father-in-Law and Lucy being his Sister-In-Law while Chloe Sullivan, Clark's childhood friend is Lois' Cousin.
    • Diana is no slouch in the department with her being the demigod daughter of Zeus and Hippolyta making Hades, Poseidon, Hera, Demeter and Hestia her uncles and aunts. Cassie Sandsmark, Apollo, Ares, Athena, Hephaestus and Hermes her half-siblings with Jay Garrick a.k.a Godspeed, the son Hermes being her nephew and Margret Rivera a.k.a Orb Weaver the daughter Phobos and Ares's granddaughter being her grandniece.
      • Diana's also the surrogate sister with Donna Troy, Nubia and Andraste with the latter having a daughter named Grace Choi a.k.a Macro being her surrogate niece.
      • She was also related to the New Gods especially Apokalypse with her once married to Steppenwolf conceiving a daughter named Aresia Hippolyta Lowell a.k.a Fury who's also cousins with Darkseid of all people.
      • She later married Steve Trevor with two children Jason and Stephanie Trevor, who's Cousin-In-Law with Angel O'Day and Athena Trevor a.k.a Tough Bunny of the Doom Patrol, who's also married with Irwin Schwab aka Ambush Bug.
    • Oliver Queen of all people, is a reasonable challenger for Bruce in this regard. With him being the maternal cousin of Sue Dibny nee Dearden/Elastic Woman who's also married with Ralph Dibny/Elastic Man and Mia Dearden who's also his cousin and ward, Walter Steele being his godfather also makes him related to Cliff Steele/Robotman of Doom Patrol, who's also Walter's nephew.
