Re: Let's say Marvel and DC were to merge universes.

The Omega Force gives Darkseid control over anything the Omega Beams hit, it's another example of Darkseid's "control everything" ambition. Theoretically, if the will of the person hit by the beams was equal or stronger than Darkseid's then it wouldn't just kill them dead as they're supposed to do.

I thought the beams didn't kill people but sent them back in time, Weeping Angels-style. That's what happened when Batman "died."

They can also teleport people, as we saw in one of Byrne's issues of Superman.

Re: Let's say Marvel and DC were to merge universes.

It's weird hearing people talk about the Omega beams/effect as an absolute death sentence or even crippling power as Superman and similarlly powered entities have not only survived the effect, but dealt Darkseid pretty devastating attacks directly afterward and are still up and kicking. Supergirl herself withstood the beams at point-blank range for what seemed to be several minutes before catching her second wind and knocking him on his bum.

It's the name.

You hear something called an "Omega" beam you think there ought to be some sort of finality to its impact. But the "does what Darkseid wants" theory is probably most accurate.

Well not an absolute death sentence seeing as how Darkside can use them to unkill people too or at least the ones he killed with the Omega Beams.

They Omega Effect gives him absolute control of anything that is hit by the beams. So death, time travel, transformation, teleporation or anything that he can imagine.

I have decided I like Captain America as a member of the JSA, JLA, and Avengers.

It all works out nicely, until Galactus decides that it is time to eat up Apokalips.
He tried that one time and found it was too dead to be worth eating or something and just left.
Yup. In the "The Hunger" crossover by John Byrne.
Too bad... I was looking forward to some "heartburn" or "spicy" jokes about Galactus and Apokolips. "Hey Galactus, does Uranus burn after eating Apokolips? Hahahaha."





Okay, better jokes than that.

A Swamp Thing Man Thing team up would be a must.

I dunno... the parody teamup in "What The--" back in the 1990s pretty much said it all.

Maybe instead of wanting to steal the Power Cosmic from the Silver Surfer, Dr Doom tries to go to Apokolips to steal the Omega Effect from Darkseid?
