    I really like The New Gods, but I haven't read a lot of the Jack Kirby stuff (Mostly because Kirby's dialogue was just PAINFUL to read! Stan Lee's dialogue is dated as well, but he was much better than Kirby, his scripting was just terrible.). I did read a reprint or two a few years ago, but I don't remember much about it. Darkseid and Orion seemed to be written differently, Darkseid seemed to be more-humble? I guess that you can say. He didn't seem to be as violent or destructive as he usually is. I know that Darkseid and The New Gods weren't meant to be part of the DC Universe (I don't think that the Celestials and The Eternals were meant to be part of the Marvel Universe, either.), and I read in various places that Kirby had a specific ending in mind. Does anyone know how he meant to end it? Was Darkseid violent or sadistic under Kirby? Was The Anti-Life equation different back then, too? Thanks.


I remember liking Kirby's New Gods, Forever People an Mister Miracle. To me Kirby's Darkseid seemed kind of like a Shakespearean character like King Lear.
