Synopsis for "Super Ego!"
Metron and Fastbak explored the Caverns of the Old Gods on Apokolips and came across a broken sword that thrummed with energy. Metron told Fastbak that it was too dangerous to leave on Apokolips, and told him to take it to Highfather. Darkseid became aware of the sword, and sent his minion Infernus to fetch it. Infernus overtook Fastbak, but he managed to open a Boom Tube and send the sword to Earth. John Hedley found it, and gained the power of the Old Gods. He had a chip on his shoulder against superheroes, and after unsuccessfully trying to goad Superman he confronted Orion. Orion tried not to be baited, but exploded when Hedley mentioned his father. They battled, Orion prevailed, and he recognized the pointlessness of their struggle. Highfather arrived via Boom Tube and reclaimed the sword. Later Infernus tracked down Hedley, and fearing to report failure to Darkseid, because that would mean death, he attacked Hedley. Orion showed up and defeated Infernus, yelling at him for daring to use his god powers against a mortal. Hedley told Orion his opinion of super-heroes as ego-tripping megalomaniacs hadn’t changed, and Orion responded that he’d seen many men like Hedley. They refused to ever concede defeat, but that didn’t mean they were not repeatedly beaten.
