  3. The villains’ plans to destroy the Earth in the first special without any consideration to how that would leave them afterwards
  4. Retired Man
  5. Ghetto Man in the second part
  6. Batman and Robin doing a comedy routine in the second part due to Robin’s reluctance to tell Batman something
  7. Hawkman’s Jewish mother in the second part
  8. The entire second part being a roast, including villains who attempted genocide in the first part being casually allowed into the heroes’ headquarters
  9. Mordru singing That’s Entertainment in the second part
  10. Second part host Ed McMahan flying off
