Mercury hints at the end of Earth 2 that there's something worse than Darkseid coming, and that something might have wiped out the Corps.
Did he? At the beginning of the book it says the parademons swarmed Earth led by their brilliant and unstoppable leader, not a "general", named Steppenwolf.
Yeah, I see that - I tinkered with how I wanted to put my thought on the subject. I could see it being Darkseid himself, but I read Mercury's line as referring to something different and not an escalation of the threat from Apokolips. Maybe I'm reading some of the Trinity War rumors into this.

I was very impressed with what I saw as an in-joke: if you're going to replace the war against Nazi Germany as the crucible for the Earth-2 heroes, you might as well use "Steppenwolf" as the villain. It's the next best thing to using "Fancy Captain Nazi Pants."

Also, Steppenwolf looked like Magog to me.
