A loyal servant of Darkseid, Desaad owned a series of clubs that held fetish parties.

In service of Darkseid, he also killed those who managed to resist Darkseid's corruption.[1] During the event known as "Contact", Desaad was confronted by Oliver Queen, who shot Desaad, alongside Gordon Godfrey to Granny Goodness, with an arrow. Desaad turned into black smoke, like the others and vanished.[2]


  • The fate of Desaad is unclear. He turns to smoke, after Oliver shoots him with an arrow. However, it is unknown if this killed him or banished him to Apokolips. Darkseid also turned to smoke, after Clark destroyed his host body and he turned up alive in season 11.[3]
