Scott Free was the biological son of Highfather who was traded for Orion over to Darkseid, as part of a pact between New Genesis and Apokolips. Scott grew up in the X-Pit, where he was repeatedly tortured by Granny Goodness. However, unlike most of her subjects, Scott Free was resilient and resisted her brainwashing. He attempted to escape on several occasions, only to be thwarted every time. Thanks to these attempts, however, Scott gradually acquired acute escapist skills,
When Superman was kidnapped by Darkseid, the he and Scott quickly bonded as they joined forces in trying to escape. Scott proved to be a valuable ally and friend, and helped Superman in not giving up hope and keeping his sanity as they endured Apokolips' hellish condition. They managed to come up with a plan to steal a shuttle and escape Apokolips, and almost succeeded, but they were betrayed by a little girl whom Superman attempted to save. Fortunately, they were joined by Barda, Scott's former lover, and they managed to reach the shuttles. Superman, on the borders of despair, asked Scott to kill him to prevent Darkseid from getting the information on the Anti-Life Equation. Scott almost followed through, but they were rescued in the nick of time by Superman's friends who had come using the Superdreadnoughts.
Upon arriving on the Sentrius Battlestation, Scott was reunited with his biological father, and was not happy to see him due to the years he suffered on Apokolips.
