** In the original comics, he tours an ''amusement park''. Granted, it was one [[CircusOfFear controlled by Apokolips]] but he seems genuinely amused when a pair of people mistake him for a guy in costume. And then there was that time Darkseid wore a costume...of course, that was part of a plan to get close to a human whose mind contained the Anti-Life Equation.

* AlwaysChaoticEvil: DependingOnTheWriter, the population of Apokalips is this. This is implicitly ''not'' the case in Kirby's original conception, though - rather they're almost hopelessly brainwashed by the brutality of Darkseid's regime. Much like [[Creator/JRRTolkien Tolkien]], it seems Kirby was uncomfortable with the idea of an irretrievably AlwaysChaoticEvil people, and so ThePowerOfLove trumps Darkseid's conditioning every time.
* AmazonBrigade: The Female Furies

Kirby was brought back to give his own official ending to the franchise, as part of a deluxe format reprinting of the eleven issues of New Gods that Kirby produced but the whole thing fell apart due to [[ExecutiveMeddling editorial interference]] (Kirby was forbidden from killing Darkseid and Orion off...maybe, some sources say otherwise). What ultimately came about was a new story called "Even Gods Must Die", which was a lead-in to the graphic novel "The Hunger Dogs", which suffered extensive executive meddling but offered a semi-decent ending to the series as Kirby (per DC's demands) ended his story with Darkseid overthrown by his slaves.

* EarlyInstallmentWeirdnes: At first Scott Free used to be at least as tall as Big Barda. That situation reversed in the 80's.

Creator/JackKirby's MagnumOpus meta-series where he developed an entire cosmic mythology involving the New Gods of the utopia of [[CrystalSpiresAndTogas New Genesis]] and the dystopia of [[PollutedWasteland Apokolips]]. Collectively, they were called ''The Fourth World''.

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 ''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.
