    Dumb questions about Darkseid and Highfather's family.

None are dumb.

    1. Was Infinity Man being Darkseid's brother a retcon? Like was that Kirby's idea or someone else's? (Byrne's maybe?)

Yes, a retcon. Byrne, I believe.

    2. In the new 52 continuity is Steppenwolf still Darkseid's uncle? What I'm really driving at is whether Steppenwolf's earth-2 daughter Fury is Darkseid first cousin or just unrelated to him altogether in the new 52 continuity.

I don't think New 52 Steppenwolf is related to Darkseid. Yet.

    3. What issues deal with Darkseid's father? I don't remember him from the Kirby stuff.

Old Yuga Khan: 1990's New Gods #17-21.
Current Yuga Khan: Infinity Man & Forever People #5, 8.

    4. Who is Mr. Miracle's mother? Avia or Vayla? And is there any retconning there?

Always retcons there is. Vayla was a Byrne creation.

    5. Have we ever learned the names of Darkseid's grandparents?


    6. Did Highfather have other biological children besides Scott.

None known.

    7. Is Lightray related to either family?

No. Just a friend.
