  1. Nice to hear one of my favourite bits of Kirby writing opening the show. I love that page and read it as Darkseid manipulating Godfrey by selling the salesman on the ‘product’ he’s pushing. I think one of the things that makes Darkseid great is he understands himself better than most mega villains, it’s not ego he’s consumed by. He knows he’s not a ‘tiger force’ and knows it’s a useful way to present himself.
    So, I like an opening with a covert sales pitch…
