Darkseid, realizing the severity of the situation, tries to form an alliance with The Quintessence (Zeus, Highfather, Ganthet, The Phantom Stranger, and SHAZAM), only to find that The Joker has turned them into babbling idiots who seem to be doing a Shout-Out To the first Scary Movie.
Darkseid: ...Well, what say you all?
SHAZAM: Wassup, D?
Phantom Stranger: WHATZZZUP!
Zeus: Yo, where's Desaad?
Darkseid: (deadpan) I am too late.
