Darkseid Gets a Dog

"Darkseid Gets a Dog" from Legends #3 (DC, 1987) by John Ostrander, Len Wei, John Byrne and Karl Kesel
Not DC's strongest company-wide crossover, the follow-up to the original Crisis reeks of Marvelism, turning heroes into public menaces as if mutant mania made ANY sense in the DCU. Its only real function is to introduce DC's next big stars - the new Justice League, the Suicide Squad, Wally West as the Flash, the New Gods as real players, and Captain Marvel (oops, you can't win them all!).

  1. Well...bad things happen whenever DC tries to "marvelize" itself. But on the other hand, Darkseid trying to housetrain that...animal, could be a lot of fun.
