Loyal to their master but none too bright, the armored Parademons fly through the air, carrying powerful weapons used to quell the rabble. Their true strength is in their numbers, which reach into the hundreds of thousands. When acting together, they can overwhelm even the toughest heroes. They are chosen from the most sociopathic and cruel residents before their bodies are genetically retrofitted and being given gliders and trained in combat.
The Parademons are revealed to be attacking the most populated cities across the world on Kalibak's orders. Kalibak summons even more of them to overwhelm Superman, but the enraged Man of Steel annihilates all of them in a massive blast of heat vision, reducing dozens of Parademons to ash and bones in seconds.
The remainder of Kalibak's invasion force attack various populated cities across the world, with many heroes failing to do little more than delay them. Ultimately, after murdering Kalibak, Superman unleashes his full power by flying at superspeed across the planet and using his heat vision to eliminate each Parademon, vaporizing them into ash that rains down on the stunned and grateful populaces, as well as some shocked heroes.
Numerous Parademons are seen on Apokolips during Superman and Darkseid's battle, and when Ares is later brought before the dread lord, more Parademons restrain the god of war for their master.
