Notes:
The storyline centered on the New Gods and their traditional enemy Darkseid, but involved all of DC's super-powered characters either directly or implicitly. It retconned the source of all super powers in the DC Universe to "the Godwave", an interstellar phenomenon that had previously created gods on various planets through the universe (e.g. on Earth the Greek, Egyptian, and Norse pantheons). This wave eventually traveled far enough along that it reflected back. On its second pass, it empowered superheros of all types in the 20th century. This phenomenon manifested itself in various ways, as a kind of grand unified theory tying together the Source, the Green Lanterns' power rings, the Speed Force, the power of Shazam, Kryptonian abilities, gifts from the Olympian gods, etc.
