So great that he escaped Granny Goodness’ gruesome orphanage and the dangers of Apokolips to travel across galaxies and set up a new life on Earth with his wife, the former female fury known as Big Barda.

He even caught the attention of the Justice League, which counted him among its ranks. You might say Scott Free has everything...so why isn’t it enough?
