Here's a good example on how the "Trueniverse" is different from Toobworld:
From the CNN website:

(AP) -- Once-powerful lobbyist Jack Abramoff pleaded guilty in federal court Wednesday to conspiracy and wire fraud stemming from his 2000 purchase of a fleet of gambling boats.

The plea before U.S. District Judge Paul C. Huck came a day after Abramoff, 46, entered guilty pleas in Washington to three other federal charges.

The tandem pleas came as part of an agreement with prosecutors requiring Abramoff to cooperate in a broad corruption investigation into members of Congress.

If this world was like Toobworld, it would never get this far. A cold-blooded assassin, someone on the order of James Olsen, would have made it look like Abramoff died in an accident.

It still could happen, but the plotline would have had it decided to do it before the investigation was now rolling on its own power.

Of course, had this been Toobworld, there would have been somebody racing against the clock to stop the murder within 24 hours, even while his own daughter was being attacked by alien-transformed humans.

And he would have prevented the assassination using only a gum wrapper, a clothes pin, and a potato.
