Fridge Brilliance

  • During Grant Morrison's run on JLA, the Ultramarines were introduced as a "proactive" superhuman fighting force, which eventually became a global peacekeeping force. As an apparent part of Morrison's Take That! against the Dark Age, the Ultramarines are told, after their flying fortress is devastated by Gorilla Grodd, that their proactive stance doesn't work, and why. Angakkuq only recently realized that they were being set up for this purpose. The name of the flying fortress, essentially a floating city, was Superbia. This appears at first glance to be a somewhat-uncreative name for a micronation run by superhumans, but in fact, it's Latin. Latin for "Pride". Y'know, as in "goes before a fall"? Genius.

  • JLA: Rock of Ages showed a possible future where Darkseid ruled. Darkseid had a scar on the right side of his face in that future and his jawline was more pronounced. In JLA: World War III General Eiling says that he is "the face of tomorrow". Note that he had red eyes, a lantern jaw and a scar on the right side of his face. Now take into account Final Crisis, where Darkseid manages to cheat death by hiding in human hosts...


How well does it match the trope?
