- Superman saved a man's life once, and that made all the difference. Because that man was my Uncle John. Because he made me see that we're all responsible for each other -- and if you save one life, you save the world. Because he showed me that there is some sense to this superheroics thing. Uncle John was always trying to get me to see that, I think -- but sometimes you just need to get hit over the head. Superman went to the wall. For the sake of a friend plotted, fought and won a battle so important the world will never know it went down. I'll even forgive him for trying to keep me out of that fight -- because, bottom line, he changed my life. My life will count for something. I will make a difference.

Synopsis for "Apokolips, Now!"
Determined to save his friend John Henry from Darkseid's clutches, Superman leads a group of those with Kryptonian DNA (so as not to involve Earth) in an invasion of Apokolips. Here, he fights Darkseid in single combat while his allies battle Darkseid's troops. Natasha Irons is also able to make her way to the hell planet, where she is saved from Doomsday by John Henry, using the great reserves of energy in the aegis armour. When Superman defeats Darkseid, he asks simply for the return of his friend, and vows never to tell others the result of the combat. John Henry is returned to them, on the brink of death and saved only by a transfusion of blood from his niece. They all return to Earth, while on Apokolips, a resistance movement takes an 'S' as its symbol, somehow having gained word of Darkseid's defeat.
