He set up the idea that humanity is the heir to the Fourth World and the New Gods in both his JLA run (Protex: "Creatures that were supposed to be gods ended up being mere humans."/Metron: "You are the forerunners."/Humanity becoming supoerhumans during the Mageddon conflict.) and Seven Soldiers (The New Gods create the god-hero Aurakles/Shilo Norman apparently becomes a full-fledged god.).

Though to be fair, considering that the New Guardians were pretty much all walking national stereotypes (RAM - Japanese guy - Electronic manipulator, Betty - Aboriginal Australian - Linked to dreamtime, Gloss - Chinese woman - Linked to "Dragon lines of force"), I think I'd rather be represented by the lab-created mutates...
