Steppenwolf, a hunter from Apokolips, joins Darkseid in his battle to take over Earth, which results in the death of Dan Turpin.

The animators originally drew in Marvel Comics writer Stan Lee
to attend the funeral, since Dan Turpin was based on Lee's friend Jack Kirby
. This was taken out by DC, who didn't want a cameo from a rival company.
However, the cameo appears in the DVD release. See more
