Trivia

  • In Green Lantern's story, Nekron mentions defeating the Gladiator of Bolovax Vik and the Knight of Korugar, who are obviously the Earth 6 counterparts of Kilowog and Sinestro, respectively.
  • The Atom retiring to meditate on Mars is a reference to the Watchmen character Doctor Manhattan, who also left Earth for Mars.
  • During the final speech in the JLA's story, Wonder Woman's words about power and responsibility are a nod to the iconic phrase "With great power comes great responsibility" from the Spider-Man mythos that was conceived by Stan Lee.
