** Orion (a good guy, with, admittedly, ''severe'' anger management issues) is ugly; in-story he's so ugly that he often wears a half-mask to conceal his face. He is of Apokoliptian origin, being the son of Darkseid himself; his goodness is due to him being raised by Highfather Izaya from a fairly young age.

* BeautyEqualsGoodness: Most of New Genesis is an unspoiled paradise, and the one major city, Supertown, is sleek and futuristic with abundant gardens and parks; Apokolips is an industrial wasteland with multiple fire-spouting craters that are each a significant portion of the planet's radius. The trope ''generally'' applies to the characters as well, with the good New Genesites being handsome/beautiful and the evil Apokaliptians being mostly ugly or deformed. There are some notable exceptions:
** ''Some'' of the (evil) Female Furies are buff but attractive.
** Orion (a good guy, with, admittedly, ''severe'' anger management issues) is ugly; in-story he's so ugly that he often wears a half-mask to conceal his face. He is of Apokoliptian origin, being the son of Darkseid himself; his goodness is due to him being raised by Highfather Izaya from a fairly young age.
** Glorious Godfrey is universally considered in-story to be extremely handsome and charismatic but is thoroughly evil. His sister Amazing Grace is also evil but beautiful.
** In the hands of a ''kind'' artist, Dan "Terrible" Turpin looks like the sort of guy you'd cast Creator/DannyDevito to play; in Kirby's original art, you might be excused for thinking he was a shaved gorilla in a suit. He's very definitely a good guy.
** Darkseid's uncle Steppenwolf is usually depicted as reasonably handsome (but with a BeardOfEvil).

** [[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.

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.
