Powers: Orion is Darkseid’s son and a half-brother to Kalibak. He turned against his father’s evil ways to fight on the side of justice. Orion wields the astro-force, an energy beam of tremendous power, and bears a computer-like device whose rays disguise his true face, the visage of one born on Apokolips.
Weaknesses: Although Orion is greater than mortal, he can be defeated in battle by a stronger warrior, or injured by conventional weaponry.
Enemies: Darkseid and his minions of Apokolips.
Secret Identity: When traveling on Earth, Orion has used the alias "O-Ryan".
The Orion figure was never seen in stores, like the other carded third series figures. The face changing feature was a new great idea of Kenner.

There is a real trick with finding this figure on the card is that there are more Canadian carded than U.S. carded, making the U.S. card much higher! A C8/9 Canadian carded runs between $48.00 to $65.00. A U.S. C-8/9 carded figure will go between $65.00 to $80.00. A C-8/9 loose/complete still goes between $14.00 to $30.00. I FINALLY FOUND IT! I bought a C-9 carded Orion for $69.96, and it was a "buy it now or best offer" that was originally $79.99 or best offer. Orion is common as loose figure or a Canadian release.
