Because ''Jimmy Olsen'' was was one of the original Fourth World books, and Superman guest stars in the first issue of ''The Forever People,'' the whole New Gods saga has had close ties to Superman since the beginning, and the 1990's ''WesternAnimation/SupermanTheAnimatedSeries'' firmly cemented the two mythoi together. These days, Darkseid tends to be depicted fighting Superman and/or the Justice League more often than he is shown fighting Orion.

-->''Orion:'' Gods are not dependent on their worshipers; worshipers are dependent on their '''Gods.''' And the New Gods? We're as old as time, constantly remade, constantly reborn with each turning of the wheel... Each time a mortal turns on a computer, puts a piece of bread in the toaster, opens a door, strikes a match, or wonders at the stars, he worships at the altar of the New Gods!

* FadSuper: All over the place; much of the story was dedicated to Kirby's views on the 1970s and the way the world was going. It's mostly managed to translate into modern times, though, as most of the issues (feminism, freedom, war versus peace, nature versus nurture, the power of authority, the goodness of youth) are still pretty relevant.



* {{Flanderization}}: Orion, Orion, Orion.
