Darkseid is a member of the New Gods based on Apokolips obsessed with subjugating the will of all sentient beings with the Anti-Life Equation. One of his cosmic schemes involved abducting the Justice League member Cyborg from Earth and implanting his body with a modified version of the Equation that would act as a techno-organic virus that would spread via telecommunications. The plan backfired by tainting the Equation, and infecting Darkseid himself, forcing him to plunge into the raging inferno at the heart of Apokolips in despair and cause it to explode.
- Darkseid was created by Jack Kirby, first appearing in Superman's Pal, Jimmy Olsen #134. However, the DCeased version of Darkseid first appeared DCeased #1 by Tom Taylor and Trevor Hairsine.
