Cyborg's wakeup techno tackle is as good of an option as Power Fist, as Techno Tackle is an unblockable throw that probably loses invincibility as soon as the move is active.
It works as a wakeup mixup though, because TT is countered in a way opposite that of Power Fist, which is blocked or else.

Except that it hits high, so holding down counters both

Awesome!!! One thing, silly slide is a viable Harley wake up. im sure AK SaltFace will agree and won't mind explaining.
I (think) can explain that in the same way Saltface, Deg, or any competent Harley player can.
Not only does silly slide allow you to immediately close distance on any opponents who want to keep you away,
but it also makes almost any jump in attempt miss-
and, more importantly, in the event of Harley's silly slide going under the opponent, Harley's player can option select when to cancel into tantrum stance off of the slide--
allowing for even more distance closing, or turning around immediately, and punishing the opponents jump with one of the tantrum stance moves.

Joker waiting room
Joker's flower is not invincible, same situation as GL's lift.

Also, mb F3 works on D Stroke's sword flip if you hit them after the first hit and before the second, something which with practice can be done 100% consistently.

Trust me, I'm a doctor
Figure I'll say it, charge has about 11 or so frames of invincibility on its start-up.

But who cares. Armor - lol

Best Zatanna that uses Aquaman
You can actually stuff Sinestro's arachnid with a well timed jump attack (I normally use a neutral jump). The jump attack has to hit him after the active frames come out... when the tail is in front of him and on the ground.
 

Braindead

I want Kronika to step on my face
Black Adam - No mix ups.
Lighting Cage- Invincible until active and safe on block, hold that! Can be punished with delayed disjointed moves.
I am afraid you are mistaken there, friend.

EDIT: I'll try to record a video where I stuff Lightning Cage. Not sure exactly how long it'll take me.

"Only idiots use Super Nova."

HEEEEEY. >:/

I only use it on occasion because some folks just don't expect it. >_>

But yeah, it's generally not a good idea to use it at all. If they block the first hit of it and know how to avoid the second hit, you're in some trouble.
