Orion DCAU - Copy
Hello father. Don't I get a hug?
~ Orion confronting Darkseid


Orion is a New God and adopted son of Highfather, ruler of New Genesis, and is the biological son of Darkseid, the ruler of Apokolips. When still an infant, he was exchanged with Scott Free, Highfather's biological son, as part of a peace treaty between New Genesis and Apokolips. Orion spent much of his youth learning to control his true inner darkness but still holds a deep hatred for Darkseid. He has worked with Superman and the Justice League on two occasions to help thwart Darkseid's plans and later goes on to join the expanded Justice League after the Thanagarian Invasion. He would once again face Darkseid's forces when the tyrant invaded Earth after his accidental resurrection by Lex Luthor.
