Zenith Phase 3 - I've just learned from tvtropes.com the reason Thunderbolt Jason's magic belt, which only worked for right and justice, wasn't working for him.

I'd thought it was just a plot device to make him vulnerable like all of the previously mighty heroes therein. Not so - it was a huge clue that what the heroes thought was a noble act of saving the multiverse from the Lloigor was actually, unknown to them, a project to hand it straight to the dark gods in question.

Christ, I love obsessing over Zenith.

Yeah - reading it at the time, I just assumed his belt issues were part of the general mockery of the ineffectiveness of most of the heroes in the face of cosmic horror, but of course Morrison's actually trying to flag up the revelation coming a few episodes later...
