** [[Creator/StanLee Stan L...]] sorry, "[[Creator/StanLee Funky Flashman]]", the toady conman who works for Darkseid, lives in a [[Creator/MarvelComics crumbling house]] with a sycophantic manservant based on Roy Thomas, gets his meagre cash by [[WhatDoYouMeanItsNotSymbolic rooting around in a container shaped like Jack's head]] and isn't [[SmallNameBigEgo half as talented as he thinks he is]]. Oh, [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking and he wears a toupée]]. Jack was ''[[{{Understatement}} not]]'' happy with Stan at the time.

** [[Creator/StanLee Stan L...]] sorry, "[[Creator/StanLee Funky Flashman]]", the toady conman who works for Darkseid, lives in a [[Creator/MarvelComics crumbling house]] with a sycophantic manservant -- "Houseroy" -- based on Roy Thomas, gets his meagre cash by [[WhatDoYouMeanItsNotSymbolic rooting around in a container shaped like Jack's head]] and isn't [[SmallNameBigEgo half as talented as he thinks he is]]. Oh, [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking and he wears a toupée]]. Jack was ''[[{{Understatement}} not]]'' happy with Stan at the time.[[note]]Stan, as Roy Thomas himself [[http://twomorrows.com/kirby/articles/18thomas.html later recounted]], was a bit hurt by how ''venomous'' it all was, and though there was still no love lost between them, even Kirby himself seemed to regret it later. (Roy, for his part, didn't necessarily mind and considered a lot of the jokes at ''his'' expense to be ActuallyPrettyFunny, but felt a talented man like Jack could've vented in a more subtle or creative way.)[[/note]]

* OrcRaisedByElves: Orion is this, being part of an experiment/peace deal that also included RaisedByOrcs. Scott Free was the son of one of the benevolent deities and was given to be raised by the EvilOverlord Darkseid. Darkseid's son, Orion, was raised in his place. Both of them grow up to be heroes.

Later writers revived the characters and concepts, though with a great deal of decay in concept as only Darkseid and Mr. Miracle caught on with fans (with Orion and Big Barda tagging along). These stories included the original 1970's ''Secret Society of Super-Villains,'' [[ComicBook/{{Legion of Super-Heroes}} The Great Darkness Saga]], [[JusticeLeagueOfAmerica Rock of Ages]], [[CrisisCrossover ''Legends'', ''Cosmic Odyssey'', ''Genesis'']], ''ComicBook/SevenSoldiers'', ''The Death of the New Gods'', ''Countdown to Final Crisis'', and finally ''ComicBook/FinalCrisis'', which slammed the door on the New Gods once and for all, while giving Darkseid a hell of a send-off as the VillainDecay got shrugged off of him on his way out the door. However, after the ''ComicBook/{{New 52}}'', they were all (presumably) brought back to life thanks to CosmicRetcon.

CosmicRetcon. Darkseid serves as, of all things, the StarterVillain for the Justice League, and his invasion of Earth is what leads to their formation. Fittingly, he also served as the ''final'' villain of that particular ''Justice League'' run, in the "Darkseid War" story arc.
