When Bruno Mannheim's Intergang is thwarted by Superman, the Metropolis media are speculating whether the police are merely a clean-up crew for the Man of Steel, and if they're even effective at preventing crime. When the mysterious Kanto arrives with gifts of advanced, other-world weaponry, Mannheim doesn't look the gift horse in the mouth. Instead, he immediately sets out to plunder the city; using these phenomenal weapons to deal with Superman once and for all, is simply the icing on the cake.
What's your boss want in return?
Nothing... for now.
It's my experience that 'nothing' can be very expensive...
Superman: Think he'll come back?
Maggie Sawyer: If I had a dime for every time Dan Turpin threw in his badge, I'd make Lex Luthor look like a pauper!
Superman: You don't think he tried something foolish, do you?
Maggie Sawyer: I'd count on it!
Bruno Mannheim: Do you know what having this gun means, Turpin?
Dan Turpin: I can take it off your Christmas list?
Where in God's name are we?
That depends. Which 'God' are you talking about?
Welcome to Apokolips, Mr. Mannheim.
Who are you?
Your new Lord and Master. You may call me... Darkseid.
