* RuleOfSymbolism: The entire story can perhaps be summed up as "DC does [[Literature/BookOfRevelation Revelation]]," with Superman and Nix Uotan both playing {{Jesus}}, Mandrakk as {{Satan}}, Darkseid as [[TheAntichrist The Beast]], the Female Furies as the HorsemenOfTheApocalypse, the superheroes as the 144,000 chosen spared from the Antichrist's wrath by God, and the Anti-Life Equation as the NumberOfTheBeast. The medieval Christian concept of the "[[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Musica_universalis Music of the Spheres]]" also gets a mention, [[spoiler: which Superman takes advantage of at the climax to render Darkseid DeaderThanDead]].

* Renew interest in the ComicBook/NewGods, particularly {{ComicBook/Darkseid}}, who was suffering from massive VillainDecay.

* AbortedArc: The series seemingly reintroduced the iconic, classic {{Aquaman}}, who had returned to save Atlantis in its hour of need. This was completely ignored in all subsequent books, save for a hand wave line mentioning that there had been false rumors of Aquaman's return during the crisis. WordOfGod ended up saying that this was a parallel-universe version who, like Overgirl and Kamandi, ended up in the main universe due to the breakdown of time and space.
