Have the parademons ever done something usefull?

Parademons are what makes up most of Darkseids army. They're big in numbers but individualy all they have is flight, heightened strength, and they carry apokoliptic weaponry. They're not very bright and only a few have earned the spotlight of a name and some intelligence but no more. Does anyone have any scans or anything where the parademons have achieved something.

Other than help form a plot, no. Not that I've seen.

What about that one from the suicide squad? (I think that's what the team is called. idk read it in the wiki.)

They helped prepare for the arrival of Darkseid.

Are any generic henchmen in comic books ever useful?

Sure they can help with bank robberies or plot set ups (the parademons capture people and reprocess their flesh), but there is no way and no reason for them to succeed beyond that. It would make the hero look bad.

@GrandSymbiote94: Secret Six. And that Parademon wasn't very useful, he didn't even last until the actual series began. Dude died at the end of Villains United.

They are just cannon fodder villains. Like Ninjas or robots, demons etc.

The only difference is they are connected with Apokolips. Meaning they are really bad news, probably noting and apocalyptic like scenario will happen. They are a little stronger than your average minion, and travel in large numbers most of the time. They are grunts befitting an A-list super team.

Hey, the S6 Parademon saved Ragdoll's life.

They are strong enough to make Superman grunt and attack by the thousands. What more do you need from foot soldiers?

They're generic moks that can be killed in the thousands with no one batting an eye. They're there to show Darkseid has control of a real army, one that can - with his help - take on even the mighty Justice League.

They're agood distraction :)

If they were meant to distract, annoy the hell out of the heroes, and act like flower girls upon Darkseid's arrival...I have to say YES!

They are very successful at being canon fodder. They perform the hell out of that task.
