On the four next pages, Orion is incinerated and lies on the ground beneath Darkseid’s boots. On the next two pages, Orion frees himself and lands three punches on Darkseid. Pummeling him, Orion has Darkseid on the receiving end on the ground.

ORION BLUNT FORCE ATTACK (x3): 1 DAMAGE PT (x3) = 3 DAMAGE PTS.
DARKSEID BLUNT FORCE (x3) + UNIVERSE-BUSTING ATTACKS: 1 DAMAGE PTS (x3) + 12+ DAMAGE PTS = 15 DAMAGE PTS.




On the final pages, Orion rips out Darkseid’s heart. After, Darkseid disappears in a giant explosion.
