In 5,000,000 B.C., the Old Gods destroyed themselves and unleashed the Godwave upon the universe, seeding beings with power. The planet was split in half and formed two new planets. One was Apokolips, and the other was New Genesis, created by the god Balduur. It is a world of light and contains forests and grassland as far as the eye can see. Rather than develop the planet, the New Gods constructed a floating city called Supertown to live in. A separate race of humanoids evolved and lived on the planet. The New Gods looked down on them and referred to them simply as Bugs. Also giant beasts roamed the lands, including a giant lizard-like one.
In the 21st century, Batman and Wonder Woman boomed to New Genesis in search of Orion when Darkseid approached the Justice League for help against Brainiac. The duo was saved by a Bug named Forager from on the beasts. They then flew up to Supertown and encountered Lightray, first. After a chase through the capital city, they captured Lightray but finally attracted the attention of Orion. He then brought them before Highfather, leader of the New Gods. Troubled by news of Darkseid, Highfather went into a building and communicated with the Source for guidance. During this time, Darkseid took control of Brainiac and set it to destroy Supertown. The New Gods barely evacuated in time and landed in various parts of the landscape. Forager witnessed the exodus and helped several of them reunite with each other. Highfather was humbled by Forager and welcomed him to the side of the New Gods.
