Darkseid is the ruler of Apokolips, and tried various times destroy or conquer the Earth.


  • New God Physiology: Darkseid's overbearing size, gravely voice, and granite-like skin give him a fierce countenance.
    • Omega Beams: Darkseid projects spurts or pulses of flame beams from his eyes. The properties of the Omega Beams change according to Darkseid's needs. Sometimes they take the form of concussive bolts of energy. Other times, they may manifest as lethal disintegration rays. The only living being able to withstand these rays is Superman.
    • Immortality: It is believed that Darkseid is an ancient being, possibly several millennia old. His body does not suffer the rigors of disease or the normal cellular mitosis that comes with age.
    • Invulnerability: Darkseid is well-nigh invulnerable and can withstand nearly any physical threat. This is not to suggest that Darkseid cannot be injured however. Sufficient physical force, such as a full-powered punch from Superman, will weaken and even injure Darkseid, though he has been known to recover from such damage extremely quickly.
    • Superhuman Stamina: Darkseid can operate with maximum efficiency for an undetermined period of time without rest or the need for sleep.
    • Superhuman Strength: Darkseid is one of the strongest beings in the galaxy, but his strength is not greater than Superman.
