- Ascended Fanon: Arsenal calls Red Hood by his Fan Nickname "Jaybird." Red Hood is not pleased.
- Executive Meddling: Lobdell has acknowledged that he frequently has to modify his plots (at times nixing them altogether) due to editorial requests.
- Executive Veto: As bad as the Stripperific redesign for Starfire was, it could've been worse. The first issue was going to feature Starfire in a semi-transparent bikini, but the editorial response was essentially a very blunt "No."
- Name's the Same: The "Bizarro Reborn" arc brings back The Colony, Harvest's underground base. Leading to some confusion among the readers due sharing the same name as the military group introduced in the first arc of Detective Comics (Rebirth).
- Throw It In!: Issue #13 of the Rebirth series features some scenes in Bizarro's mind, and one of the panel descriptions called for Krypto to be "panting off to one side." However, artist Dexter Soy misread "panting" as "painting" and drew just that. Since the result was both comical and fit with the cartoony style of Bizarro's memories, it was kept.
- What Could Have Been:
- Lobdell considered Gorilla Grodd and a few other unnamed "handful of characters" before being offered Blackfire and Steel. But then Geoff Johns himself sat Lobdell down and suggested Artemis and Bizarro, characters Lobdell had initially believed were out of reach.
- Pete Woods went through many different ideas when designing Jason's appearance for the Outlaw era. Among them we have:
- A design that had Jason wearing Roy's bloodied tunic.◊
- Designs heavily reminiscent of his Arkham Knight iteration◊
- Assassin's Creed-esque designs◊
- Costumes that look like◊ Deathstroke ripoffs.
- For Jason's new emblem, he also went through many iterations, Arkham Knight inspired ones, skullsand a particularly memorable that merged Jason's red bat with a red arrow as a means to honor Roy.
- Writing by the Seat of Your Pants: Scott Lobdell has admitted he doesn't like to plan stories too far ahead under the belief that since real life is unpredictable, his stories should be too.Lobdell: I've said in other interviews that I'm not a writer that likes to plan ahead. Because, really, there isn't a lot of planning ahead in life either and if we want our characters to feel life-like, we have to be prepared for the curves that life throws at them.
