THE CANCELLED NEW GODS MOVIE

Originally, Director Ava Duvernay and Mister Miracle writer Tom King co-wrote the script for the movie. In fact, the New Gods movie had begun filming. In 2021, New Gods was removed from the DC Extended Universe film slate with little explanation.

In our Reading Guide, we show why the Kirby-created franchise is space opera and can take the DC Extended Universe to the next level. Here is our New Gods chronology since their first appearance in 1970 containing the mainstream continuity titles.

DARKSEID’S FIRST APPEARANCE (1970)

*Collect Superman’s Pal, Jimmy Olsen #133-152.

Before debuting the New Gods, legendary writer and artist Jack Kirby introduced new characters to the series Superman’s Pal, Jimmy Olsen called the Newsboys Legion. At the head was Morgan Edge, who headed Galaxy Broadcasting System, owned the Daily Planet where Jimmy Olsen and Clark Kent worked. Secretly, he operated a criminal organization called Inter-gang. In order to get rid of both Clark and Jimmy, he sent Jimmy on an assignment to uncover the secrets of the Mountain of Judgment.

Namely, Jimmy and The Newboys, filmed their journey through the Zoomway. Indeed, they discovered that the Mountain of Judgment was actually a gargatuan space vehicle. There, they discovered a scientific society called the Hairies led by a man called Jude. Fortunately, the Newsboys discovered that Morgan Edge planted alpha-bombs in their cameras to destroy the Hairies. And he was doing so in service of his alien master, Darkseid. Though the plan failed.


In reality, the Hairies were not New Gods. Instead, they were genetically modified humans by a secret government organization called the DNA Project. Indeed, it was run by the original Newsboy Legion, who were the parents of the current Newsboys. The Project had mastered the human genome and could clone humans from cells. In Post-Crisis Continnuity, The DNA Project was used under the name of the Cadmus Project.

THE NEW GODS (1971-72)

*Collect New Gods #1-11.

In 1971, New Gods debuted. In the first issue, Jack Kirby introduced the New God Orion, who with his friend Lightray came from the paradise New Genesis. Together, they lived on the hovering city called Supertown where Highfather, in contact with the Source received messages on the wall.

The Source prophesied that in order for Orion to stop Darkseid’s quest for the Anti-Life Equation, he had to journey to Apokolips then to Earth. On Apokolips, Orion found four people whom Darkseid believed held a fragment of the Anti-Life Equation. He freed them, then returned them to Earth. On his travels to Earth, Darkseid used Mother Box to hide his face and adopt a civilian identity called O’Ryan.


Originally, the war between New Genesis and Apokolips started when Darkseid’s uncle, Steppenwolf, murdered Avia, Izaya’s wife. In retaliation, the ruler of New Genesis invaded Apokolips which was ruled by Queen Heggra, Darkseid’s mother. In the shadows, Darkseid gave Metron Element X so that he would assist. In return, Metron created the Boom Tube which Darkseid used to teleport to Apokolips. Desperate, Izaya pled and the Source evolved him into Highfather. Then, a truce was made where both rulers would exchange their sons, Scott Free and Orion.

LEGENDS (1986)

*Collect Legends #1-6, Superman #3, Adventures of Superman #426, Action Comics #586, Action Comics #592-593, Action Comics #600, Justice League #1–42, Superman v.2 Annual #2.

After the Crisis On Infinite Earths reboot, John Ostrander and comic legend John Byrne re-launched the New Gods. Though, the New Gods continuity was maintained. In Legends, Darkseid schemes against the heroes of Earth to undermine their credibility. To this end, the God of evil unleashes two monsters from Apokoips, Macro-Man and Brimstone. Prominently, the Justice League launched its high profile series.

In the crossover event, the New Gods begin to feature prominently in Superman titles. Importantly, Darkseid transported Superman to Apokolips with his Omega Effect. There, he was transported to Armagetto where he was an amnesiac though a hero to the Lowlies. Orion and Lightray traveled to Apokolips to rescue Superman who had been indoctrinated by Granny Goodness. With the Mother Box, the sentient computer, Superman was restored. After a fight with Darkseid, Superman managed to outrace th Omega Effect, hitting Darkseid. Then, the Man of Steel was sent back to Earth.

THE NEW GODS (1989-91)

*Collect New Gods v3. #1-28.

In 1989, New Gods debuted its third series. Particularly, it followed the events after the Cosmic Odyssey four-issue limited series. The new series centers on the struggle between New Genesis and the Insect Empire for Supertown’s governing power. In addition, it tells of Apokolips’ attempts to continue its war on Earth. Again, the central protagonist is Orion of NewGenesis.

THE NEW GODS (1995-97)

*Collects New Gods #1-15

Legendary artist and writer John Byrne debuts on New Gods vol. 4. The premise of the series is the end of Darkseid’s quest for the Anti-Life Equation. Now convinced that it does not exist, the ruler of Apokolips seeks to control the Source. After unleashing a wave of darkness across the universe, Darkseid’s plan is foiled by Orion. In an anticipated showdown, Orion heads into space to confront his father. In the Source, the New Gods duel until one final victor emerges: Orion.

Catastrophically, Darkseid’s death sent shockwaves through New Genesis and Apokolips. Indeed, both planets were destabilized by the imbalance between Good and Evil. In order to prevent the unleashing of the Old God S’ivaa, Highfather started a self-imprisonment in an asylum. However, S’ivaa who slumbered in the eternal sea, was free! After he began his dance of universal destruction, Highfather recruited Superman and Orion to hold it off. Successfully, S’ivaa was imprisoned on the Source Wall though Darkseid and Highfather melted in its fire.

JACK KIRBY’S FOURTH WORLD (1997)

*Collect Jack Kirby’s Fourth World #1-8, Genesis #1-4, Jack Kirby’s Fourth World #9-12, Darkseid Villains #1, Jack Kirby’s Fourth World #13-20, New Gods Secret Files #1.

Legendary artist and writer John Byrne created a unified origin story for the New Gods and the Old Gods. In the beginning, there was a First World seedless and ormless. Then, there was a Second World home of the Old Gods. After, the Godwave seeded the universe with divinity and the potential for super powers. Also, there was a Third World where the gods having attained adulthood warred for thousands of years. Then, it exploded into two planets, Apokolips and New Genesis called the Fourth World.

JUSTICE LEAGUE (2011)

*Collect Justice League #1-6.

In 2011, the New 52 re-launch rebooted the DC Universe with 52 parallel universes. For this reason, many characters’ origins were changed while others were removed. In the new origin of the Justice League, Darkseid invades Prime Earth in its first alien invasion with his arm of parademons.

EARTH 2 WORLD’S END (2012)

*Collect Earth 2 #1, #8, #11; World’s Finest #10-26; Earth 2 Annual #1; Earth 2 #14, #15, #15.1, #16, #23, #25, #28; Earth 2 World’s End #1-12.

In 2012, Darkseid continues his conquest of the DC Multiverse. On Earth-2, he sends Steppenwolf to conquer it. There, he finds opposition from Superman though Wonder Woman loves him. On Apokolips, Big Barda falls in love with Scot Free and the two escape. They are randed as traitors. In the battle for Earth-2, Steppenwolf impales Wonder Woman and kills Superman. After the invasion, the Earth is left cratered and Steppenwolf and his armes escape to Earth-0.

JUSTICE LEAGUE: DARKSEID WAR (2015)

In 2015, acclaimed writer Geoff Johns worked on the final storyline of the New 52. Justice League: Darkseid War is a masterful crossover that adds to the New Gods mythology. According to Amazon prophecy, the child of Darkseid and Myrina Black is going to usher a new darkness on Earth. Known as Grail, she summons the Anti-Monitor in order to conquer Earth and kill Darkseid. In his quest for the Anti-Life Equation, Darkseid invades Earth though it leads to fatality. Caught between a godly war, Wonder Woman and the Justice League must save Prime Earth or become gods!

KIRBY SPECIALS (2017)

*Collect The Newsboy Legion and Boy Commandos Special #1, Manhunter Special #1, The Sandman Special #1, The New Gods Special #1, Darkseid Special #1, The Black Racer and Shilo Norman Special #1.

Overpowered Beings: Super-Charged With The Speed Force, Barry Allen Is #TheAngelOfTheDCMultiverse

In 'DC Universe' (2008) #0, Barry Allen falls from the sky, resurrected in Final Crisis.
 

OVERPOWERED BEINGS

Variant Comics

IN COSMIC HIERARCHY

BARRY ALLEN IS #THEANGELOFTHEDCMULTIVERSE

In 'DC Universe' (2008) #0, Barry Allen falls from the sky, resurrected in Final Crisis.
In DC Universe (2008) #0, Barry Allen falls from the sky, resurrected in Final Crisis. DC Comics.

To begin, Barry Allen was always destined for great things. In Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox [Blu-ray], the animated film begins with Nora Allen and her son, Barry. When their car breaks down, Nora teaches Barry about the Serenity prayer: “accepting the things that can’t be changed, having the courage to change those that can, and have wisdom to know the difference.”

Fans of The Flash: Season 1, know Barry’s mother was murdered when he was a boy. In fact, the time-traveling and archnemesis Reverse-Flash was the one responsible for her murder. Steadily, Flash has been gaining power-ups every season and adding muscle! However, in the comic medium, the superhero is on another level.

In our article, we choose Barry Allen as “TheAngelOfTheDCMultiverse.” Why is that?

BARRY ALLEN DISCOVERED THE DC MULTIVERSE

Notably, the concept of the DC multiverse important to continuity was introduced in Flash (1961) #123, titled, “The Flash Of Two Worlds. Importantly, the issue established that Barry Allen (Earth-One) and Jay Garrick (Earth-Two) existed on two parallel Earths existing in the same space but vibrating at different frequencies. From there, stories featuring different versions of the same hero or different teams were understood as happening on parallel Earths.

BARRY ALLEN RETURNED TO PROTECT THE DC MULTIVERSE IN FINAL CRISIS

Perhaps, revealing Barry’s true manifest destiny. After his heroic sacrifice in Crisis On Infinite Earths, Barry returned with renewed purpose. So, who had a hand in the Flash’s return? The Monitors? The New Gods? The Source? As matter of fact, it was Zoom who zipped the Flash out of the Speed Force. In DC Universe (2008) #0, Barry Allen falls from the sky, resurrected in Final Crisis. In the issue, Barry states he sees the light of heaven, darkness and the DC multiverse.

BARRY CREATED THE POST-FLASHPOINT DC MULTIVERSE

Notably, Flashpoint may have been the most important DC comic of the 2010s. Indeed, within a decade, it has been adapted to The Flash TV series and is the basis for the upcoming Flash movie. What makes it so important is how the personal decisions of a single character can completely alter reality. When Barry went back in time to prevent his mother’s murder, he created an alternate timeline where she was alive. Though, at the end of the series, Flash has to sacrifice what he holds most dear to restore the DC multiverse. Inadvertently, his actions led to the New 52.

OVERPOWERED, FLASH IS A SPEED FORCE CONDUIT

In 'Crisis On Infinite Earths' (1985) #8, Flash time travels to the past to destroy the Anti-Monitor's antimatter canon, sacrificing himself.
In Crisis On Infinite Earths (1985) #8, Flash time travels to the past to destroy the Anti-Monitor’s antimatter canon, sacrificing himself. DC Comics.

Really, Flash is one of the most powerful beings in the DC Universe. After being struck by lightning, Flash became a Speed Force conduit. In the DC Universe, the Speed Force is a dimension in the Sphere of the Gods, beyond the DC multiverse. From the Speed Force, speedsters are powered with an infinite reservoir of kinetic and potential energies.

Moreover, it appears Barry’s limit is the speed of light. As Flash, he is able to break dimensional barriers, race photons and molecules, react in attoseconds, steal speed, enter the Speed Force and escape, enter into the unknowable realm of the Source. Furthermore, Barry can generate lightning, travel in space, fly, negate the Anti-Life Equation, turn invisible, phase, heal rapidly and is capable of heightened mental processes.

All these super powers put Flash at the Multiversal-Level with infinite Energy Projection potential.

WHY BARRY ALLEN IS AN OVERPOWERED BEING

BARRY ONCE RAN SO FAST THAT HE ENTERED THE SOURCE

In 'Super-Team Family' (1978) #15, Flash ran so fast that he entered the Source.
In Super-Team Family (1978) #15, Flash ran so fast that he entered the Source. DC Comics.

In reality, Flash may be a cosmic being or a god! During the Bronze Age, Barry appeared in a New Gods story. In short, the New God Orion needs help! After falling into unconsciousness, Orion has been growing in size. Now, his size threatens the sun.

In his prescience, Highfather commissions Metron, Lightray and Flash to the Source. According to legend, no god may enter the Source or he may die. In truth, these words ring true. From Apokolips, Darkseid learns of the mission and commissions Hagdar the Mad to stop them.

When the Super-Team arrives at the Promethean Galaxy, they are stopped by Darkseid’s minions. However, understanding the Source’s prophecy, Metron sends Flash forth. Only Flash is fast enough to enter the Source.

Later, he mysteriously comes back with a machine that can help Orion.

BARRY ENTERED THE SPEED FORCE RUNNING

In 'The Flash: Rebirth' (2009) #3, Barry Allen runs past the speed of light into the Speed Force.
In The Flash: Rebirth (2009) #3, Barry Allen runs past the speed of light into the Speed Force. DC Comics.

In The Flash: Rebirth (2009) #3, Barry Allen runs past the speed of light into the Speed Force. In the issue, Barry’s speed force aura has been contaminated. Now, he is dying.

In Fallville, the JLA and JSA have put Barry in a containment chamber. To this end, they plan to disconnect him from the Speed Force in order to save his life. And Iris has come to be his “lightning rod.” Suddenly, in bursts of lightning, Barry busts out. With Superman in hot pursuit. Nevertheless, outpacing the Man of Steel, Flash has a plan. As matter of fact, Barry plans to enter the Speed Force in order to save everyone.

At top speed, Barry stretches past the boundaries of the universe. As he moves past the speed of light, he remembers Iris, Wally, his death and his trial. As he enters the Speed Force, he struggles to remember Iris. There, he is greeted by a voice that reminds him of Iris and his name. Soon, he meets Johnny Quick and Max Mercury.

Definitely, a feat requiring a Multiversal-Level of super speed with infinite Energy Projection.

Perhaps, one of the two Flashes’ greatest feats occurs in Final Crisis. In Final Crisis (2009) #7, Barry and Wally outrace the Black Racer and the radion bullet Darkseid fired 50 years in the past.

As a New God, the Black Racer is the embodiment of Death. Moreover, he has been stated to be the fastest being in existence. In fact, none may outrun Death.

When Darkseid fires the radion bullet at Superman, Barry and Wally arrive. Together, they outrun the Black Racer and the radion bullet vibrating through Darkseid. Then, Black Racer claims Darkseid’s soul.

Here, Barry actually outran a Celestial or abstract being. Talk about an angelic feat of eternal proportions!

AS GOD OF DEATH, HE KILLED DARKSEID

In 'Justice League' (2015) #44, Barry the God of Death kills Darkseid.
In Justice League (2015) #44, Barry the God of Death kills Darkseid. DC Comics.

From #TheAngelOfTheDCMultiverse, Barry became the God of Death. In Darkseid War, Darkseid and Anti-Monitor battled on Prime Earth. Namely, their battle was over Grail, Darkseid’s daughter. In addition, the God of evil sought the Anti-Life Equation.

Between them, the Justice League was caught in the crosshairs. In order to turn the tide, Darkseid summoned Black Racer. However, his plan backfired. Sinisterly, Anti-Monitor fused Black Racer to Flash. Now, Flash became the New God of Death. With the Anti-Life Equation, Mobius blasted Darkseid as the God of Death vibrated through his body.

Perhaps, one of the most talked-about moments in the New 52. Definitely, Barry Allen always performs impressive feats in times of crisis. Though the New God of Death, he proved why he was once #TheAngelOfTheDCMultiverse.

In addition, there were seven negative global ratings. One negative review mentioned an incorrect product delivery: “Seller’s description was for the Omnibus edition, not the essential it was setting. Since Trade Paper Backs reprint different materials, this edition had around 200 pages less than advertised. Attempts to communicate with the seller (Book Depository) were given generic replies of “editions change.” Unfortunately, this isn’t a different edition. Its a different book that shares some content with the one in the description.”

Overall, this graphic novel was great.

IN REDEMPTION

NEW 52: JESSICA CRUZ DEVELOPED PTSD FROM AN ATTACK BY MOBSTERS

In ‘Justice League’ (2014) #31, Jessica Cruz becomes the new Power Ring. Four years ago, Jessica and her friends went on a hunting trip. On the way, they stumbled upon mobsters who were burying a body. Murderously, they decided to not leave witnesses and shot Jessica’s friends. Incredibly, Jessica managed to escape. Consequently, the young girl developed anxiety and PTSD from her trauma. As a result, she has locked herself in her room for four years.

Sinisterly, the Ring of Volthoom has revealed these things to her. Upon the death of Harold Jordan of the Crime Syndicate, the Ring has chosen her as its new host. In fact, her fear attracted it to her, a weapon it can use for destruction. When Jessica shoots the Ring with a shotgun, it only becomes angrier. Violently, the Ring forces itself upon her finger. Later, in control, Jessica realizes she needs help. Fortunately, the Doom Patrol offers to help.

NEW 52: DURING DARKSEID WAR, JESSICA CRUZ BECOMES A GREEN LANTERN

In ‘Justice League’ (2015) #41, Grail summons Anti-Monitor. After an attack on the Justice League, Green Lantern and Power Ring are on the scene. While Jessica is on crowd control, Hal confronts Grail. However, during the battle Grail breaks Hal’s willpower. Instead, Grail uses the Ring of Volthoom to summon Anti-Monitor to Prime Earth. In ‘Justice League’ (2016) #47, the Justice League breaks the Crime Syndicate out of Belle Reve. Cyborg, Power Ring, Mister Miracle and Big Barda break into the penitentiary.

Unfortunately, proximity to the Crime Syndicate causes Jessica to lose control and for the ring to possess her body and mind. Then, Jessica becomes Volthoom. Nevertheless, when Cyborg attempts to override the ring, Volthoom activates the Grid virus. In ‘Justice League’ (2016) #49, Jessica’s mind is trapped inside the Ring of Volthoom. Previously, at Belle Reve, Cyborg downloaded his consciousness into the ring as a contingency plan to help Jessica.

In ‘Justice League’ (2016) #50, Jessica Cruz becomes Sector 2814’s new Green Lantern. Inside the ring, Cyborg describes the ring’s programming as 0s, 1s and fear.

Fortunately, Cyborg manages to hack the tech in time for Jessica to save Flash from the Black Racer in one second. Seemingly, Jessica is killed by the Black Racer. In reality, we learn Black Racer has claimed the life of Volthoom. For her ability to overcome great fear, Jessica is chosen as Sector 2814’s new Green Lantern.

REBIRTH: DURING JUSTICE LEAGUE: ODYSSEY, JESSICA CRUZ DIES AND IS RESURRECTED AS AN OMEGA LANTERN

Previously, the Guardians of the Universe assigned Jessica Cruz to the Ghost Sector. In ‘Justice League Odyssey’ (2019) #1, Cyborg, Jessica Cruz, Starfire and Azrael head to space to confront a new menace. In the Ghost Sector, thousands of shrunken planets imprisoned on Colu have been released into the universe. Initially, Starfire joins the team in order to investigate the return of her home world Tamaran. However, the Ghost Sector, is a highly unstable region of space. Sinisterly, Darkseid offers to help the Justice League Odyssey. In ‘Justice League Odyssey’ (2019) #12, Darkseid reaches his full power. Previously, Darkseid had been born into baby from Superwoman in “Darkseid War.”

Slowly, he manipulated Hypertime to assemble the Justice League Odyssey and build Sepulkore. Using Starfire to activate the station, Darkseid soon returns to full power. While Cyborg, Starfire and Azrael have been converted into New Gods, only Jessica Cruz opposes Darkseid’s return. At four percent ring power, Jessica delivers Darkseid a devastating punch. Powerfully, Darkseid responds with a backhand that leaves Jessica on the floor, close to death. With one final blast of his Omega Effect, Darkseid reduces the Green Lantern to ashes and bones. In ‘Justice League Odyssey’ (2019) #13, the Omega Effect resurrects Jessica as an Omega Lantern.

COSMIC HIERARCHY

ON THEMYSCIRA, GRAIL’S BIRTH FORESHADOWS THE DARKSEID WAR

The Prologue to the Darkseid War is on Themyscira. The Amazons were created by Zeus to bring peace to mankind. After defeating Hercules and his army, the Amazons retreated to the Paradise Island of Themyscira. On a fateful night, Diana was to be born to Queen Hippolyta.

That same night, an abomination was born: She was the daughter of Darkseid and the Amazon assassin Myrina Black. Her name was to be Grail. Menalippe was Hippolyta’s favorite oracle. At the birth of the child, she prophesied Grail would bring about a great darkness: a terrible war “between the dark God and the antiGod.” Eventually, Minalippe and Penelope were left to die by Myrina.

In "Darkseid War" (2015), Minalippe foretells the prophecy of the Darkseid War.

GRAIL ATTACKS THE JUSTICE LEAGUE AND SUMMONS ANTI-MONITOR

The Justice League are investigating a crime scene. Strangely, they tracked it down because a Boom Tube was open there and two people are dead. Diana narrates the story and reveals the team’s dynamics: Batman and Flash are running tests on the evidence, Hal and Jessica are taking a look at the people in the complex, Shazam and Cyborg are investigating the Boom Tube. When Cyborg locates two other murders of women named “Myrina Black”, an explosion happens.

Grail teleports out of Flash’s mouth and starts tearing the Justice League apart. First, she attacks Batman in a duel then takes out Cyborg and Shazam. Grail proves to be fast, strong and able to emit eye beams.Grail has the advantage over Diana and pins her to a car. Meanwhile, the Green Lanterns intervene but are quickly taken down. Using Power Ring (Jessica Cruz), Grail creates shadows to summon the Anti-Monitor. Sinisterly, the anti-God is here!

WHO ARE THE NEW GODS OF THE JUSTICE LEAGUE?

Grail’s plan in the Darkseid War was to create New Gods in order to gain the Anti-Life Equation. As Batman later finds out, Anti-Monitor’s origin story on Qward sentenced him to destroying the DC multiverse after every cycle of rebirth.

The punishment was because he sought the beginning… Using the Anti-Life Equation, Grail could stop the rebirth of the universe, with a final plan: Superwoman’s son. Who are the New Gods of the Justice League?

THE JUSTICE LEAGUE RECRUIT THE REMAINING CRIME SYNDICATE TO FIGHT ANTI-MONITOR

In order to stop Anti-Monitor and Grail’s Darkseid War, the Justice League have to break the Crime Syndicate out of Belle Reve. Mister Miracle finds a powerless Ultraman and Cyborg and Power Ring find a pregnant Superwoman at Level 0. Ultraman is scared that Anti-Monitor, who previously destroyed Earth 3 is going to destroy Prime Earth. At Superwoman’s cell, Power Ring is contaminated and activates her ring to become Volthoom. As Cyborg attempts to hack into the ring, he re-activates Grid.

Superwoman blasts Mister Miracle and Big Barda with her eyebeams. Then, Owlman breaks a hole in Superwoman’s cell. Onboard the Watchtower, Wonder Woman and the Justice League agree to work with the Crime Syndicate. Diana orders Superman to give Ultraman green kryptonite to recharge. As Ultraman feeds, Owlman gives the JL the codes Lex Luthor provided. The Justice League locates Anti-Monitor. Visit the conclusion of the Darkseid War if you are interested in the comic.
