IN GODS, MONSTERS AND INFINITE POWER
IN POST-CRISIS CONTINUITY, THE OMEGA EFFECT IS DARKSEID’S ULTIMATE NEW GOD SUPER POWER
Darkseid’s Omega Effect is the New God’s ultimate super power. Being a New God, Darkseid derives this super power from the Source. The ability is probably an extension of the chaotic power of the Source.
What does this mean?
The Omega Effect is Darkseid’s power to create or destroy from the chaos aspect of the Source. In post-crisis continuity, the Source is the boundary to the DC multiverse and its creator.
The Godwave was a mystical wave of energy, created by The Source, that swept across the cosmos, responsible for creating various pantheons of gods. As it spread it eventually reached the edge of the universe and rebounded, making a second pass that created the potential for Superhumans. Thus, it was responsible for creating the likes of the Speed Force, the Quantum Field and the energy channeled by the Guardians of the Universe. In time, the resonance created by the Godwave began to expand and contract whereupon it returned to The Source. This expansion and contraction began to affect the powers of various beings throughout the universe. As a result, the cosmic energy force began to tear apart the structures it had created whereupon it would wipe the universe clean bringing about the emergence of a new and terrible Fifth World to replace it.– Godwave (Concept), Comic Vine
