The son of Highfather who was exchanged for Orion would later escape to New Genesis and become the New God Mr. Miracle.

Episode Quotes
Maggie Sawyer: Some days you're the windshield and some days you're the bug.

Mother Box: Let us begin at the beginning. What once was whole was split asunder and in its place there arose two worlds. Worlds as different as daylight and darkness, virtue and evil. One is called New Genesis, unparallel in its beauty. It is ruled by the wise and powerful High Father. The other is Apokolips, a ravage wasteland ruled by the demonic and omnipotent Darkside. He psychically feeds on the despair and misery of others. Because of their opposite natures these two worlds have been locked in eternal warmer. However an uneasy truce was established when Darkside and High Father exchanged their infant sons. Unfortunately this has not diminished Darksides's ambitions. For years he has searched the galaxies for the legendary anti-life equation, a formula that would give him complete control over all living things. In his endless search, he has conquered and subjugated planet after planet.

Bruno Mannheim: You promised me you would make me a king!
Darkseid: And so you are – a king of fools!
