Darkseid is an ancient and tremendously powerful extraterrestrial being, unchallenged supreme leader of a vast army of Parademons, and superior of Steppenwolf[1].

Biography Edit

Beginnings Edit

Darkseid was born many millennia ago on a distant alien planet, eventually becoming supreme leader of the vast Parademon army, and at some point making Steppenwolf his herald and second-in-command[1].

First Invasion of EarthEdit

30 millennia before the Black Zero Event, he ordered Steppenwolf to conquer Earth, but the latter's army was successfully fought off by the combined efforts of the Amazonians, Atlanteans and humans, thus losing three of the Mother Boxes, and forcing Steppenwolf to retreat, back to Darkseid's side. Each of the three factions of the army that helped save the Earth would be given one Mother Box, and were forced to hide them.

Batman v Superman: Dawn of JusticeEdit

Communion of Earth Edit

Shortly after human supergenius Lex Luthor from Earth made contact with Steppenwolf and learned of the three Mother Boxes, Darkseid ordered[1] his second-in-command to journey to Earth a second time, to search for and retrieve the Mother Boxes, bringing with him a vast army of Parademons.

Powers and AbilitiesEdit

  • New God Physiology: As a New God, Darkseid is terrifyingly powerful, able to command the Parademon army unchallenged. The only known beings to at least rival his might are Superman, and Doomsday, and with Darkseid known to surpass Steppenwolf, who dares not disobey his orders[2].
    • Longevity: It is unknown whether Darkseid is either extremely long lived or immortal and immune to aging all-together - however, Darkseid is still alive in the 21st century, despite being over 30 millennia old.

  • Expert Leader: Darkseid, due to having millennia of experience, is an extremely skilled leader, able to command his herald Steppenwolf and the vast Parademon army unchallenged, inspiring fierce loyalty in them.

  • Mother Boxes (Formerly): Darkseid originally owned 3 alien Mother Boxes, though they would be lost in Steppenwolf's first invasion of Earth. They would be given to the Amazon, Atlantean and human factions of the massive army that drove Steppenwolf's first invasion away, with one of the 3 eventually fusing itself to the body of Victor Stone. 30 millennia later, Darkseid sends Steppenwolf to Earth once more, to recover them all.
