After learning that Kandor had become New Krypton, Darkseid sent a fiery meteorite to destroy Earth as a part of his plan to conquer the new planet. The Justice League tried to stop him, but through the use of his Omega Beams, he trapped them on the meteorite. As the meteorite entered Earth's atmosphere, the Super Pets responded and used their combined powers to slow the descent of the meteorite so that it could land safely. Darkseid decided to just leave, as he had work the next morning.[2]

He planned to conquer the city, only for multiple superheroes to confront him.[6] After they trapped his Parademons, Darkseid unleashed his Omega Beams, freeing the inmates of Arkham Asylum. The Shazam Family arrived to help, but only made Darksid more angry. Batman convinced Firestorm to absorb the Omega Beams and redirect them into the Boom Tubes. Meanwhile, Superman used of the Starro's spores to paralyze Darkseid. The Flash caused the Boom Tubes to loop, with Superman throwing Darkseid into the vortex.[7]
