Parademons are the foot soldiers of Darkseid and make up the majority of his army. They also act as a security force and patrol sectors of Apokolips. They are vicious, unmerciful, unintelligent and utterly loyal to Darkseid and his elites. Steppenwolf devised a plan to immortalize himself by killing Superman. He deployed a squadron of Parademons to Earth. After Batman, Superman, and Big Barda took them out, Steppenwolf made his presence known by firing at Superman then tackled him through a Boom Tube to a desolate planet orbiting a red sun. Superman survived their skirmish and hid. Steppenwolf summoned two Parademons and boarded his Astro Harness for the hunt. Superman took one out with a bola fashioned with vines then crushed the other with a rigged boulder. Batman and Barda boomed to Apokolips in search of anything that would lead them to Superman. They took out a patrol of two Parademons in Darkseid's citadel before advancing into Steppenwolf's war room.
Parademons were loaded on four battleships destined for an invasion of Earth. Superman was unwilling to let the invasion happen and charged into the lead ship. Several Parademons were vented into space. Space Cabbie used his quick thinking to link up with the Justice League. He flew Hawkman and Swamp Thing to the crash site where they made short work of the Parademons. Desaad and the Parademons were rounded up and imprisoned aboard Justice 1. During a session in the Watchtower's holographic training simulator, Wonder Woman chose Parademons. Hard light holograms were generated. Space Cabbie mistook it for a real fight and got involved. Two Parademons accompanied Granny Goodness in her pursuit of Booster Gold after a battle with the Justice League on Apokolips. They caught up with Booster in a Space Cab and tore off the roof. Space Cabbie hit the brakes and the Parademons went tumbling forward.
Desaad sent Parademons to the Daily Planet to capture Superman. One set off a Kryptonite bomb then they conducted a search. Two looked in the janitor's closet and found Clark Kent and Sid Sharp. They cleared Kent since he had glasses on. Sharp happened to be wearing a costume based on Superman's and was taken back to Apokolips. Once Darkseid recovered what he thought to be the last piece of the Anti-Life Equation, he sent a swarm of Parademons after Batman, Mr. Miracle, and Big Barda. They boomed off-planet just in time. The Parademons missed them and piled atop each other. A swarm of Parademons were stationed in a pocket dimension to help Darkseid by retrieving robot duplicates of the Justice League when it was time to reset the simulation and erase their memories. The Parademons stormed S.T.A.R. Labs. The robots discovered their programming prevented them from directly harming the Parademons. Batman threw a smoke ball and they escaped. They ran to the edge of the simulation and hid behind a Big Belly Burger billboard.
The robot Justice League determined the Daily Planet was Darkseid's command center and stormed the entrance. Superman used his super breath to knock all the office furniture into the Parademons then they ran for the elevator. The robot Booster Gold got an idea and led them on a chase that ended in the other elevator. He flew up through the hatch and cut the cable. The Parademons crashed down to the very bottom but several made their way back up to command center. Superman and Wonder Woman punched down a door and threw it down the shaft.
