|~ Superman to Draaga|
Draaga was the undefeated champion of War World's brutal gladiatorial games. Although he wished to put an end to Mongul's rule, he was kept in line by the tyrant's threat to destroy his homeworld with a superweapon. One day, he would be pit against and lose to Superman and was discarded by Mongul's regime. Draaga would burn Superman's symbol into his chest and swear revenge against him. He would eventually make his way into the middle of a bout between Superman and Mongul where he learns that Superman had promised to throw the fight in exchange for Draaga's homeworld being spared destruction. After Mongul's planet destroying superweapon is eventually put out of commission by J'onn J'onzz, Green Lantern John Stewart, and Shayera Hol, Draaga defeats Mongul in single combat and offers Superman his crown. However, Superman refuses it and asks Draaga to accept the responsibility.
