Martian Manhunter/J'onn J'onzz
Hades mentions to Diana that he and her mother sculpted her out of clay together. Technically speaking, Hades is Diana's father. But, in "Paradise Lost" he was surprised to see that Hippolyta had a daughter.
Trivia: There is a picture of a maiden riding a white bull in Diana's room in the JLU building. This picture represents a story of Zeus who takes the form of a white bull to be with a mortal lover.
Trivia: When playing Zatanna's lines backwards, she says "ALL IS LOST, FAUST SITS ON THE THRONE OF HELL."
As Hawkgirl says, "What does that tin suit run on?" her mace is on her right hand and the strap around her right wrist. She hits him and the mace is still in her right hand, strapped to her right wrist. But Faust grabs her and the mace strap slides off her left wrist.
When Flash and Wonder Woman enter, Fire and Ice are sitting by themselves. After they sit, Fire gets up. But only a couple of intervening shots later Fire is back at the table and Aztek has appeared there.
J'onn says all the League's magical members are stricken, but at least one established magical Leaguer, Johnny Thunder (and/or his magical Thunderbolt) are not present or referred to.
In the cafeteria, in the first couple of shots both Diana and Shayera have a bowl with fruit in front of them. But right after Flash takes something from Diana's tray and says, "You weren't going to eat that, were you?" there's an overhead mid-shot and the fruit bowl has vanished from Diana's side. Then it reappears after Wonder Woman says, "It's the sauce."
In the cafeteria scene, the relative placement of the various tables and occupants varies from shot to shot. When Flash and Wonder Woman sit down, Fire and Ice are behind and to Diana's right toward the outside window. But in the next shot Fire gets up and she's almost directly behind Diana. Then when Shayera arrives Diana is positioned so her back is back toward the way they came in and away from the window - instead there's a door on her right leading to a cafeteria-serving area. Then they cut back to another shot where we can see to Diana's right, and the cafeteria-serving area has vanished and instead there's the doorway leading out into a hallway. This discontinuity continues throughout the scene - in the next shot directly on Wonder Woman's face Ice is behind her but in the next shot Ice is behind the Flash (although Aztek still isn't present). The next shot, same angle, Ice is to Diana's side again. And so on.
Wonder Woman has the same problem - when she attacks Faust with the mace as she says, "I hit harder then she does," it's clearly strapped to her left wrist. A few blows later she drives it down into Faust's headpiece and there's clearly no strap on her left wrist.
When Faust mummifies Wonder Woman, her entire body is wrapped up except for her feet. However, in the next shot her feet are covered, but the lower part of her face is not.
Hermes: By decree of Zeus, Father of Olympus, it is so ordered that Diana of Themyscyira will travel to Tartarus and set right that which has been disturbed.
Wonder Woman: He's telling me to go to...?
Shayera: My mace disrupts magic – what's that tin suit run on again?
Tala: This is really bad, isn't it?
Felix Faust: You have no idea...
Flash: You could at least talk to each other.
Shayera: The pasta's good.
Wonder Woman: It's the sauce.
Shayera: This isn't going to work, is it?
Wonder Woman: Not a chance.
Felix Faust: Still, it's hard to believe you can't solve your Annihilator problem. The answer is simplicity itself.
Tala: Are you going to tell me, or just keep tormenting me?!?
Wonder Woman: Flash?!?
Hermes: No no - it's the original speedster.
Flash: I always thought the reason you two don't get along is that you're so much alike.
Shayera and Wonder Woman: Like her?!?
Shayera: Aren't you cold in that outfit?
Wonder Woman: Not really.
Shayera: Of course not--the Princess doesn't get cold. The Princess doesn't even sweat in the Fire Pits of Tartarus.
Wonder Woman: I do too sweat.
Shayera: Please-–you glow. I wouldn't be surprised if you never have to... (convenient interruption)
Wonder Woman: What about us. Are we good?
Shayera: That's right-–I'm an angel. You can mess with me if you want to, but I don't think you want to mess with the boss. (demons flee) If we're lucky, they'll all be that dumb.
Wonder Woman: As far as I'm concerned, they deserve each other. Why should I care about this?
Hermes: You mean, other then the "direct order from the gods" thing?
Felix Faust: (in Hades' library) I'm in Heaven--figuratively speaking.
Shayera: We're revoking your library card.
Wonder Woman: You're doing this because you want to prove yourself to me, aren't you? Well, you don't have to. I forgave you a long time ago.
Shayera: Did I ever ask you for your forgiveness?
Hippolyta: Bring my daughter back to me.
Shayera: Nothing to worry about. She's almost as good at kicking butt as I am.
Hippolyta: Diana! You know you're not supposed to step foot on this island. The gods have decreed that...
Shayera: The gods are decreeing stuff all the time around here (Hippolyta glares) ...ma'am.
Hermes: I've got something for you. It's pretty important – (Zeus) paid for overnight service. Here it is.
Wonder Woman: (reading scroll) "For a good time, call Podemanus..."
Hermes: Whoa. Wrong scroll. I think I got a shot. It's her cell number.
Hermes: Felix Faust is on the loose again.
Wonder Woman: Felix Faust is dead.
Hermes: Yes, and pretty upset about it too.
Felix Faust: You actually hurt me. Allow me to return the favor.
Flash: I had dinner with two women at the same time...cuz I'm a stud!
Hades: Ah well - who has time to read these days? Besides, I've got a new hobby - tormenting Faust's pathetic soul. Any problems with that?
Shayera: Not my department.
Abnegazar: Now could you please take this rope off of me? I'm a demon. The truth hurts.
Shayera: Where's Faust?
Abnegazar: Let me think... oh, yeah, he's over there! No, wait, he's over there! No, there.
Shayera: One more answer and it better be the right one.
Abnegazar: Or what, you'll kill me? Gosh, I might end up suffering eternal torment as punishment for my sins... oh, wait, I already am!

Hades suffers a simliar torment to that of Prometheus. Prometheus, whom brought the fire to man, was tormented by a large vulture that ate his liver everyday. The liver grew back and the routine continued until Hercules killed the bird.
Felix Faust: The lost scrolls of Herculaneum...

Felix Faust: Pierre Menard's Don Quixote....
Pierre Menard is a fictional 20th century writer, created by Jorge Luis Borges for the book Pierre Menard, Author of The Quixote. The story was written in the form of a review about the non-existent Pierre Menard, describing his effort to translate, and immerse himself so thoroughly to "re-create" it in the original 16th century Spanish, Miguel de Cervantes' Don Quixote. The Don Quixote itself gives a panoramic view of the 17th-century Spanish society. The work has been seen as a veiled attack on the Catholic Church or on the contemporary Spanish politics, or symbolizing the duality of the Spanish character. Don Quixote is often nominated as the best work of fiction ever.
Felix Faust: Dark tomes that make the Necronomicon look like a children's book.
The Necronomicon (Greek) is a fictional book of magic, invented by H. P. Lovecraft and frequently featured in his Cthulhu mythos tales. The cover seen here has a face on it which resembles that seen of the Necronomicon in the Evil Dead/Army of Darkness movies.
