Orion is the son of the dreaded Darkseid. He was raised on New Genesis by Highfather as part of a treaty between the warring planets of New Genesis and Apokolips. Highfather exchanged his son for Darkseid's son, as a show of good faith. Orion fights the forces of evil as one of the greatest champions of the planet New Genesis.

- ↑ This is based upon the comics. It hasn't been actually stated as Orion has never appeared in the series.
- ↑ The third volume of Super Powers take place in a different continuity than the other Super Powers stories, which take place on Earth-1A. Because of this, Orion has technically never "officially" appeared, unless you count his action figure.
