Is Darkseid dead in the post crisis timeline after the Great darkness saga?
Is he alive in any other (older) Legion continuity?
And even if Darkseid is dead, unless Apocalips has been destroyed, there would be a line of succession to make sure that the pure evilness of their existence continued...
Kalibak is an idiot, but Darkseid has other sons.
The Great Darkness Saga was Darkseid's first introduction to the Legion verse (and his first appearance in a number of years, I believe). The events of those five issues rippled through Legion stories for a while...at one point Validus was Garth and Imra`s son taken from them by Darkseid just before birth and transformed.
This continuity really didn`t change until after Zero Hour IIRC.
