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.

Added DiffLines:

** Fantastically averted by Mister Miracle Scott Free, who basically broke every attempt at MoreThanMindControl Apokolips could throw at him, with the result being not only his escape but his wife's HeelFaceTurn.

* AboveGoodAndEvil: Metron's reason for not taking any side, though it doesn't stop him from aiding the good guys against Darkseid any chance he gets.
** The main reason he's considered neutral is because [[spoiler: in the early days of the war, he helped Darkseid develop boom tube technology, in exchange for the raw materials he needed for his Moebius Chair.]] Since then, he's mainly been seen aiding the good guys (perhaps out of remorse?).
*** He's worked with Darkseid on occasion since, as well, despite Darkseid never making any secret of what fate he intends for Metron. It's partly that Metron's primary motivation is ForScience, and partly because Darkseid and Metron have few intellectual equals who can stand them for long.

* UrbanLegend: "The Road to Armaghetto"; for years it was believed that the original version of the story did indeed feature Orion and Darkseid fighting to the death. It didn't (Esak is the only one who actually dies in the issue).
