During Steppenwolf's quest was to use the Mother Boxes to terraform Earth, DeSaad and eight other priests carried three Mother Boxes. Their task was to combine the Mother Boxes to create the Unity, which would allow Earth to be transformed into the primordial hellscape of Apokolips and which would allow Darkseid to rule it. However, their attempts were stopped when the combined forces of Earth's armies proved to be too much for Steppenwolf and DeSaad. Zeus blasted the three Mother Boxes apart with a lightning bolt, separating them and killing and injuring a few of the priests and DeSaad in the process. After they were defeated, Steppenwolf was dragged back into a ship by parademons, while DeSaad retreated to his own.
