When Superman is one of your headlining heroes, there’s nowhere else to go (in power level) other than up.

Despite the insane capabilities of Superman, in the main continuity the Last Son of Krypton isn’t technically a god. However, there are many heroes, villains and characters somewhere in between who do fall into the camp of being gods.

In DC Comics, the main gods of the universe are split between the Greek Pantheon from ancient myth and the New Gods, which are a pure DC Comics creation from the mind of comic icon Jack Kirby. However, there are still some stranglers who fall outside those two types.

Batman v Superman may have only just come out, but Warner Bros is already teasing the release of its R-rated home edition . They just posted this deleted scene to YouTube, and despite almost the entirety of the io9 staff having watched this movie over the weekend, none of us have a clue what’s going on. Spoilers ahead!

The clip, entitled “Communion,” sees a group of soldiers descend into the Kryptonian scout ship and surround Lex Luthor, who’s taking a dip in his weirdo alien goop bath—presumably after the final battle, before he’s put in prison. But that’s not necessarily the weird bit: It’s what Lex is communing with.

The alien hologram entity is holding what appear to be three Mother Boxes—in DC’s comics, they’re all-powerful living computers created by the New Gods, the race of powerful beings that long-running villain Darkseid is a member of—before it fades away. It’s hard to tell, but there stands a good chance that this creature is meant to be a monstrous version of Steppenwolf , one of Darkseid’s generals from the comics, further tying into the film’s set up for Justice League . EDIT : In the comments, the excellent Ben Grimm offers an even better guess: Yuga Khan, Darkseid’s father—which would make sense too.

Steppenwolf is an ancient and powerful New God from Apokolips [1] , serving as the herald to his uncle Darkseid , [2] and leader of Apokolips's army of Parademons . [3]

Steppenwolf was born many millennia ago on the distant planet of Apokolips [1] eventually becoming the herald and second-in-command of his warlord uncle Darkseid . [2]

As millennia passed, Steppenwolf would proceed to carry out Darkseid 's bidding by invading and taking over other worlds. In the process, he would encounter and battle members of the Green Lantern Corps resistance, and ultimately would prevail every time. On his first Earth stint, he easily took out and killed an alien Green Lantern who came to the aid of the Amazons.

Warner Bros. is coming off a major win thanks to megahit Wonder Woman , and many fans hope the additions of Aquaman , The Flash, and fill-in director Joss Whedon  will elevate Justice League above its critically panned predecessor, Batman v Superman .

While we don’t yet know if it will succeed, we can at least answer some of your looming questions about the film’s villain, Steppenwolf. This ancient, militaristic alien arrives on the big screen for the first time in Justice League , played by Ciarán Hinds ( Munich, Frozen ).

The late, great Jack Kirby is credited with co-creating some of the most prominent characters in comics. He and Joe Simon co-created Captain America in 1941, and Kirby and Stan Lee created what became the bedrock of Marvel comics in the X-Men, Fantastic Four, and Hulk. What many readers may not know is that Kirby also created some notable DC characters when he crossed the divide in the 1970s. Those characters include Mister Miracle, Darkseid, and Steppenwolf, who appeared in an early 1970s comic titled  New Gods .
