Much like the Olympian Gods and solar-powered Kryptonians, New Gods are beings of immense physical attributes, incredible divine power, skills, and advanced technology compared to humans, with different degrees of application. Because of this superiority, New Gods are tremendously powerful, being able to subjugate humans easily had the Amazons and the Atlanteans not assist them.
Some New Gods such as Darkseid and Steppenwolf are able to control Parademons as their minions, exerting control over other species.

In DC Comics, there are two planets of origin for New Gods: Apokolips, ruled by Darkseid and New Genesis, under a ruler known as the Highfather. Both planets are in a parallel universe near the constellation of Orion and can only be accessed through the use of a Boom Tube, a technology that can be obtained through the use of a Mother Box. Apokolips and New Genesis are in constant warfare, signifying evil and good respectively.
