The final defeat of Darkseid and the end of the Fourth World Saga
No, for real.

Jack Kirby conceived the various Fourth World books to be part of one epic saga with a beginning, middle, and end... a maxi-series, if you will. Unfortunately, low sales forced the cancellation of each series, although on the bright side, this did free up the various characters to make later appearances in the DC universe. In 1985, Kirby wrote a graphic novel called The Hunger Dogs designed to bring the saga to a close, although DC editorial prevented a climactic Darkseid-Orion showdown from truly closing the book, even though The Hunger Dogs was evidently non-canon. Still, it's an interesting look at Kirby's intentions, thwarted as they were.
