Taking the adventures of Kirby's brooding New God and member of the JLA in exciting new directions, ORION starts with a bang (or maybe a "BOOM!") as the title character seeks the truth about his being the son of Darkseid. In the incredible first issue, Orion confronts his mother, Tigra, about her claim that he is not truly Darkseid's child. Refusing to believe her words, he seeks the counsel of others, traveling to the heart of the Source and then to the darkness of Apokolips for answers. But the one who would know best, Darkseid, is nowhere to be found because, unbeknownst to Orion, he is wreaking havoc on Earth, taking over a city in the heartland of America as part of his voracious quest for the Anti- Life Equation!
