Origin

Kalibak is the son of Darkseid, the ruler of Apokolips and the sorceress Suli, whom Darkseid secretly married against the wishes of his mother Queen Heggra.


After he was born, Queen Heggra had the torturer Desaad poison Suli, and forced Darkseid to marry Tigra, who bore his son Orion. Orion was traded to the Gods of New Genesis as part of a peace treaty.


Kalibak was trained in Apolikips's Special Powers Force to become the ultimate warrior and to one day lead the charge against his brother Orion and the Gods of New Genesis.
