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

** One of the inspirations of HeMan, to the point where the movie was originally intended to be a New Gods story before falling into DevelopmentHell.

* BaseBreaker: CanonForeigners Takion and Grayven, both [[CanonForeigner Canon Foreigners]] who either distract from Kirby's creations or represent ongoing attempts to keep the original setting relevant.

** SuperYoungTeam was intended to be an update/reincarnation of the Forever People.


Added DiffLines:

** Mister Miracle had elements of this, representing both Kirby's freedom from Marvel and his relationship with his wife.


Added DiffLines:

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

** Darkseid, who became one of the DCU's most popular villains, and Mr. Miracle, whose book was the only one of the original ''New God'' books '''not''' to be canceled. Let's not forget he's the reason why ComicBook/{{Thanos}} existed [[spoiler:after the idea was changed from being based on another New God, Metron]]

* 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.

Added DiffLines:

** 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.

* 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 [[BatmanAndTheOutsiders Geo-Force's costume]] with a big "O" on his chest.

* FanonDiscontinuity: Anything not written by Kirby has at least some people who claim this ([[CriticalResearchFailure sometimes]] [[MainstreamObscurity justified]]). Compounding the problem is that Kirby's work in canon is often treated with BroadStrokes, at best. Starlin's ''Death Of The New Gods'' in particular is often lumped in with ''Countdown'' as being this to Comicbook/FinalCrisis.

About the only successor works that people seem to have some acceptance for is Walt Simonson and Grant Morrison's takes (who at least seemed to have their hearts in the right place even if they didn't totally get it).
