Newsarama is counting down the 10 most wish-we-could-forget moments in DCU history, and I missed this one.

Did THIS really happen?! Was I actually able to forget this ever occurred? Can I do it again?

From the page...

You've heard about this one, right? In Action Comics #592 and #593, shortly after Crisis on Infinite Earths, John Byrne introduced a new villain named Sleez, who manages to trick Superman and Big Barda into filming a sex tape with each other. Yep.

Mr. Miracle, Big Barda's husband and fellow New God, wasn't too happy to find out -- wait, let's rewind. Mr. Miracle saw the film because Darkseid gave him a copy of the tape. That's right -- Darkseid, the ruler of Apokolips and generally the worst dude around in the DC Universe, tasked his minions to hit up the porno shops in Metropolis in search of a stag film on VHS.

This actually all might be pretty funny in an Elseworlds or "Bizarro Comics" story, but no, it was right there in continuity, filling two issues of one of the longest-running series in American comic book history.

Add in the line above it about someone not being forced to something they wouldn't normally do. So it's hinting that Barda would normally cheat on Scott on camera.

Course then you fast forward a decade or two to Secret Six with Knockout and Scandal and she doesn't understand the fact she shouldn't sleep with deadshot, so it hints that relationships on Apokalypse are more the merrier. I.E. in the Authority where Midnighter meets time cops when he is trying to kill Hitler so he doesnt get blown up by the mad scientist.
