This was a six-issue limited series published as a companion to a Super Powers action figure line on sale at the time, and was intended to be an introduction to the DC characters for fans of the action figures who may not be reading comics. The series did not fit into canon however.

Synopsis

Darkseid flees from Apokolips after a revolt by the Hunger Dogs. After arriving on his moon base by using his final boom tube, he constructs a star gate. Darkseid plans to take over Earth using the seeds of doom. However, the Martian Manhunter and Aquaman stand in the way of his plans along with the rest of the Super Friends
