Orion is a fictional character that appears in comic books published by DC Comics. The character first appeared in New Gods #1 (February 1971), and was created by writer-artist Jack Kirby. Orion originally appeared in Jack Kirby's three Fourth World titles published in the early 1970s, New Gods, Mister Miracle, and The Forever People. When the titles were subsequently canceled, Orion and his fellow New Gods characters were unseen until DC returned to the Fourth World concept a few years later. Following an appearance in the final issue of 1st Issue Special, DC revived both the New Gods and Mister Miracle series, continuing the numbering from the original series. The new stories were done without Jack Kirby and featured a number of changes of concept for the character of Orion.
