Following the Flashpoint, a new version of reality was created with a different history of events.

From him, they learnt that one of the wielders of the Emotional Spectrum had not only passed through the Wall but returned with this being an unprecedented event.

(New Gods: Godhead v1 #1)

With the Life Equation firmly in his control, Highfather intended to send his army to Earth and convert its population in order to lay a trap for Darkseid as he knew his rival coveted that world.
