Synopsis for "From the Dregs"
One of the Hunger Dogs recovers Superman's body from the Fire Pits of Apokolips and brings it to a group of Lowlies in Armagetto. One of their leaders, Amazing Grace, steps out of the crowd and helps to revive Superman. Superman seems to have lost a significant portion of his memory due to falling into the Fire Pit. Amazing Grace proclaims him as their savior. The Hunger Dogs rally behind Superman and feel that he is the one that will lead them to victory and overthrow Darkseid.
Darkseid witnesses the spectacle and sends a squad of Parademons to break up the rabble. Superman leads the Hunger Dogs and they make a strong show of force. They all begin crowding in the street and they feel courage and hope for the first time in years. But their strength and victory is short lived. A second, more massive wave of Parademons swoops down and obliterates thousands of Hunger Dogs. This is all according to Darkseid's plan. He wanted the savior to build them up to the moment of supreme hope, just so he can knock them back down – a defeat of the spirit as well as the body.
Amazing Grace reveals herself to not be the leader of the Hunger Dog resistance, but a willing accomplice of Darkseid. She uses her hypnotic powers to sway Superman to her side. After the slaughter, Grace brings Superman to Darkseid's palace. Darkseid smiles and regards the savior as his son.
