Franchise/{{Superman}}, being the primary character of the event, is forced to set aside his enmity against then-President ComicBook/LexLuthor, General Zod (who ruled an Eastern European nation) and even Doomsday and ''{{ComicBook/Darkseid}}'' in order to combat this cosmic threat. Superman's greatest challenge wasn't simply physical (Each Imperex "Probe" was 8 feet tall, stronger than Superman, invulnerable, and if it ''did'' have its armor pierced, it would detonate with the force of an atomic bomb), but emotional. Superman could only watch as allies and family became wounded (Half the JusticeLeagueOfAmerica), were killed (WonderWoman's mother, {{Steel}}, ComicBook/{{Aquaman}}, many others), went missing (Superman's parents both presumed dead during the arc), and even stood by helplessly as ComicBook/LoisLane went sobbing into ''Luthor's'' arms when her father died in a kamikaze blitz while defending the White House.

The crap ''really'' hits the fan when Imperiex is defeated (wait for it)... and {{ComicBook/Brainiac}} appears, absorbs Imperiex's immortal essence, becoming a PhysicalGod, and sets upon ''absorbing'' the entire universe (instead of destroying it). Turns out Brainiac had orchestrated the ''entire'' scenario (including using Lex Luthor's daughter to guide him into doing everything that had to be done to destroy Imperiex), and with all the universe's defenders dead, defeated or at the very least severely weakened, nothing would be able to stop him...

* NotTooDeadToSaveTheDay: Superman has gone all super-saijin (by super-soaking himself in yellow sun radiation) and is about to obliterate Brainiac by destroying War World's "heart"... when he sees the essence of Imperiex floating in Brainiac's veins! So if he destroys Brainiac, Imperiex is free and will destroy the universe anyway! This causes Superman to shake off his homicidal rage and come up with a plan to dispose of ''both'' immortal threats without breaking his code against killing. Also a slightly humorous example when Young Justice is saved by an ''army'' of Lobo clones (each one came from a drop of Lobo's blood due to his over-powered regenerative abilities)

* TheWorfEffect: Doomsday. A single blast from Imperiex turns the once invincible monster into [[StrippedToTheBone a mere skeleton]]. Edit: Not Worf Effect at all. In addition to the big bang, Imperiex Prime controls Entropy, which is what killed Hunter/Prey Doomsday previously and cannot be adapted against.
