* NarmCharm: With a character named Granny Goodness, you'd think you wouldn't be able to take a villain with that name seriously. But then you learn that her purpose in the story is to raise unlucky children into mindless slaves and soldiers for Darkseid. Now that you know this, her name is suddenly creepy as all hell.

** The Black Racer is [[https://static.comicvine.com/uploads/original/2/28855/1610037-black_racer_06.jpg Death on Skis]]. But he's still the goddamn GrimReaper, his form meant to represent how he's always pursuing you and will eventually catch up sooner or later.

-->'''Turpin''': So you wanna tell me why my missing kids trail leads right to you?
-->'''Boss Dark Side''': How could it not? As for the children...I gave ''them'' to '''''Granny'''''.

** The Franchise/{{DCAU}} animated incarnation is also seen by many to be definitive, where Darkseid becomes Superman's BigBad when he hadn't yet had that status in the comics.

** The Franchise/{{DCAU}} animated incarnation is also seen by many to be definitive, where definitive version outside the comics medium. It was also the first version to make Darkseid becomes a firm part of Superman's BigBad when he hadn't yet had that status in rogue's gallery, with the comics. comics following after. And of course being the DCAU, it features possibly the definitive voice cast for the characters.

** Lashina was barely an afterthought in the initial run, but she's fetish material and was a regular in the SuicideSquad, which upped her profile dramatically.

* SeinfeldIsUnfunny: If you were born after [[Film/ANewHope 1977]], it can be pretty easy to dismiss ''New Gods'' as an uninspired ''Franchise/StarWars'' knockoff. In fact, the series began in ''[[OlderThanTheyThink 1971]]'', six years before ''Star Wars'' hit theaters--and it's likely that it was one of Creator/GeorgeLucas' primary artistic influences. You barely have to squint to see Kirby's fingerprints on Lucas' world: there's a metaphysical life-giving energy field called "The Source", a malevolent galactic conqueror in a dark helmet whose name sounds like "Dark Side", and even a hero who finds out that the dark-helmeted BigBad [[LukeIAmYourFather is actually his father]]. More broadly, Kirby's idea of merging pulp sci-fi with Myth/ClassicalMythology may have influenced Lucas' idea to put TheHerosJourney [-IN SPACE-].

** The Forever People were Kirby's take on heroic hippies... ten years after hippies. Even for their time, they hadn't aged well.

* DorkAge: ''Return Of The New Gods'' - not for the series itself, which ranges between not-terrible to SoOkayItsAverage, but for the wholly unnecessary redesign of Orion to look more "superheroic". He trades in his helmet and Astro-Harness for something resembling [[ComicBook/BatmanAndTheOutsiders Geo-Force's costume]] with a big "O" on his chest.

** Like with many things about the New 52, their run isn't held in high regard because of a severe case of AdaptationalVillainy.

* MyRealDaddy: A contentious example. Some think [[OnlyTheCreatorDoesItRight only Kirby's work is really worth reading]]. Most agree that Creator/WaltSimonson's ''Orion'' and Creator/GrantMorrison's work probably represents the best use of the characters outside their original series.
