In a rare but not unheard of occurrence, a Parademon
realized some measure of individuality and fled to Earth to have his freedom. This one had killed many warriors of the New Gods
and carried with him ten Mother Boxes
as trophies. They would not open Boom Tubes
for him but would comply with some other requests.
This unnamed Parademon was drafted by Mockingbird, secretly Lex Luthor
, into the Secret Six
as agents against the newly founded Secret Society of Super-Villains
. Blackmail was necessary to get Parademon's compliance, so Mockingbird held over his head the threat of giving Granny Goodness
his location. He served the Secret Six loyally and developed a strange and protective rapport with Ragdoll
, who he referred to always as "Clown." His upbringing on Apokolips
left him with a warped perception of reality. He found terrible things amusing and beautiful things unpleasant. When the Secret Six were captured by the Secret Society, he enjoyed his torture at the hands of the Crime Doctor
as it was like the old days with Granny Goodness.
In a surprising move, this Parademon chose to sacrifice his own life when the Secret Six were cornered in their own base by an army of other supervillains. He set his ten Mother Boxes to self-destruct to give the others the opportunity to get away. Ragdoll found his dying body, burned and with three of his limbs blown off. He asked Ragdoll to tell him a joke, but Ragdoll once again insisted he was not a clown nor was he funny. But he did comment on the fact that the Parademon was about to die without ever having had a name or a home. The Parademon laughed and told Ragdoll that he was funny before dying.
The Parademon was created by Gail Simone.
