When Darkseid declared war on the universe of Earth 2, Steppenwolf led an army to their world in what would come to be known as the Apokolips War. Steppenwolf successfully managed to kill Earth 2's Wonder Woman and Superman during their last ditch attack against him. However, he was finally defeated and pushed back after Batman sacrificed his life to send all of Steppenwolf's Parademons back through boom tubes.
Unable to get back to Apokolips after his defeat during the Apokolips War, Steppenwolf spent the next five years in hiding trying to escape the World Army with the help of his remaining forces and his daughter Fury. Steppenwolf took control of the small country of Dherain after killing their king and set up plans to further conquer the world. Moments after he had finally taken down the World Army and declared himself ruler of Earth 2, Steppenwolf was apparently killed by Brutaal.
- Steppenwolf was created by Jack Kirby, first appearing in New Gods #7. However, in the Prime Earth continuity Steppenwolf first appeared as part of the New 52 DC Universe in Justice League (Volume 2) #6 by Geoff Johns and Jim Lee.
