The High-Concept Pitch for Sleeper #10:  Genocide's origin story = Homer Simpson + The Killing Joke.

The Surprise Twist Forecast for Astro City: Local Heroes #4:  The Blue Knight will turn out to be the lawyer's cop friend, who will then save the lawyer and turn to kill the bad guys...until the lawyer reminds him that "killing them won't bring your family back."

The "It's Deja Vu All Over Again" Award for JSA All Stars #6:  If you're going to have the main character retell his origin within the story itself, opening with the Spectre narrating that same origin story is a little redundant, not to mention a waste of a full page.
