21st century

First Appearance

The Knights of Tomorrow!


In 5,000,000 B.C., the Old Gods destroyed themselves and unleashed the Godwave upon the universe, seeding beings with power. The planet was split in half and formed two new planets. One was New Genesis and the other was Apokolips, formed by the power of an evil sorceress into a world of darkness and despair. Apokolips lacks any natural life and is one giant city that covers the planet. Its most notable feature are the Fire Pits that can be seen from space. Their exact origin is unknown whether it is mystical or scientific in nature. Darkseid rules Apokolips and is considered a god by the Lowlies, human slaves that toil endlessly in the Armaghetto districts. The planet is patrolled by Parademons, Suicide Jockeys, and Dog Troopers.

While on a dangerous reconnaissance mission, The Question travelled to Apokolips and discovered Darkseid's plans for Earth. He was pursued by Kalibak, Demon Dogs, and Parademons. Cornered, the Question leapt into a Fire Pit.
