Kalibak the Cruel is the first-born son of Darkseid and Suli. Kalibak’s mother was killed by Desaad under orders from Kalibak’s grandmother Queen Heggra. After Darkseid breaks the pact of peace with New Genesis, the rival planet of Kalibak’s home Apokolips, Kalibak is driven to destroy the home planet of the New Gods.
Kalibak is often pitted against Orion after they learned that they were half-brothers. Kalibak’s hatred of Orion is a white-hot rage, for Darkseid clearly values Orion over his first-born. Unlike Orion, Kalibak secretly craves the love and respect of his father – something neither he, nor anyone else, can ever hope to attain!
Even Superman himself is pushed to his limits when confronted with Kalibak, the Scourge of Apokolips!!
